New PlayStation State of Play revealed, will focus on third-party games

A new PlayStation State of Play has just been announced for this Thursday, with the main attraction being a deep dive into the upcoming Deathloop.

Sony is organizing a new PlayStation Game Status live stream event later this week, with a focus on indie titles and third-party releases. PlayStation was largely absent from June’s big E3 blast, so Sony is expected for another stream of gaming reveals.

Since State Of Play debuted in 2019, Sony has been using the livestream showcase to announce announcements of its upcoming PlayStation titles. Even the massively successful PlayStation 5 console was first unveiled at one of 2020’s State of Play events, and subsequent ones have spotlighted blockbuster exclusives such as Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and the next Forbidden Horizon West as well as smaller titles like martial arts Sifu and PS5 updates to past gems like Crash Bandicoot 4: About time.

Now PlayStation is gearing up for another State of Play livestream this Thursday, as revealed in a recent Twitter post earlier today. This new State of Play event will be held on June 8 at 2:00 p.m. PT (or 5:00 p.m. EST) and will offer a deep dive into the time-consuming multiplayer shooter. Death Loop. There will also be announcements and updates for third-party and indie titles slated to come to the PS5 later this year or beyond.

There’s no word yet on what will be shown at the next State of Play besides. Death Loop, but Arkane Studios’ next title has turned a lot of heads due to its time-consuming gimmick that allows players to retrace their steps in a single day as they attempt to assassinate eight “visionaries” or survive their spectrum. While Xbox’s recent purchase of Arkane’s parent company, ZeniMax Media, put The loop of death future on the PS5 in question, the developers have since assured players that it will be available on both consoles as planned. Death Loop won’t take up as much space on the PS5 either, as the game’s file size recently turned out to be a mere 16.1GB, small potatoes for a console with a standard SDD size of 667.2 Go.

PlayStation fans haven’t heard much from Sony since the last one, Forbidden Horizon WestState Of Play in May, so getting a new event this week is certainly exciting – even if it’ll only be for smaller indie and third-party titles. Death Loop Still looks intriguing, so players can expect to see more alongside plenty of other reveals in July. PlayStation Game Status streams on June 8 – just days away as of this writing.
