Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC played high at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2014 with "Driveclub," "The Order: 1886," and loads of PlayStation 4 (PS4) games. The exhibit runs from June 10-12 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, California.
A crowd of people gather near the Sony Playstation booth at the 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo, known as E3, in Los Angeles, California June 10, 2014.
According to the E3 Web site, the American-based company showcased "Driveclub," "Everybody's Gone to the Rapture," "Bloodborne," "CounterSpy," "LittleBigPlanet 3," "The Order: 1886" and "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" for the PS4 games. It also exhibited "H1Z1" for the PC games. The company also presented the first white version of the famous game console during the press conference which will be available in the market by September 9.
The game "Entwined" is immediately available on PS4. Game enthusiasts on the console will control the two separate characters in the game. The fictional characters are graduates from Carnegie Mellon University. The players will let the characters collect items across the different levels in order to unite.
In "Driveclub," players will race against each other on a road racing experience which is characterised by high-quality graphics typically found in a racing stimulator. At the same time, players will be able to incorporate strong team elements, manage race teams and add players as they reminisce the arcade racer. The game will be released in the market on Oct. 7, 2014.
Just like the previous versions, the game "LittleBigPlanet 3" revives Sackboy along with his new friends Toggle, Oddsock, and Swoop. This is a multiple player game that can be played online and up to four offline players. The game is set for release on November 2014.
A single player game set for release within the year, "The Order: 1886" is an action-packed adventure in the Victorian setting. The player has to access weapons in order to fight with various creatures that have human and beast characteristics. These creatures emerged from the wreckage of Industrial Revolution and class disorder.
Due for 2015 release, the spiritual game "Everybody's Gone to the Rapture" showcased the story of exploration. Set in the apocalypse era, the players will learn the story behind the six characters in a town called Shropshire by changing the events in the game.
Also set for next year's release,"Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" is an action adventure game from the viewpoint of a thief named Nathan Drake at the ominous tropical island.
The latest addition from Hidetaka Miyazaki, the game "Bloodborne" has a 19th century Victorian setting in an aesthetic and distinct urban location. Though similar in style with "Demon's Soul and Dark Souls," the game is a stark contrast to the former game's medieval style environment.
Meanwhile, players will be engaged in different missions to roll back the ticking Doomsday Clock during the Cold War in the game "CounterSpy." Just like "Bloodborne," this side-scrolling secrecy game has no release date yet.
For PC game, players will interact with each other to survive in the "H1Z1" game. This is set in an apocalypse period in the United States where gamers will have to hunt for resources, build shelters, develop armours and fight against the hordes of zombie in order to survive.
New Sony Computer Entertainment America head Shawn Layden summed up the company's proposition during the Monday evening press conference with the words: "After all guys, it's all about the games, isn't it?"
