E3Stravaganza 2016: Sony Press Conference

So at last year’s conference, they didn’t announce a single game that came out that same year. Do you think that’ll change this year?

We’ll likely see Horizon Zero Dawn, Call of Duty, The Last Guardian and some other stuff.

Conference starts at 6PM.

6:05: What…why is God of War vikings?

No seriously, why is God of War Vikings now?

So, there’s zombie monster dudes coming out, and there’s definitely God of War combat. This is certainly God of War.

And that’s Horizon: Zero Dawn.
