What to Expect at the Upcoming PlayStation State of Play
This State of Play was announced alongside a short gameplay trailer for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart that introduced us to the game’s mysterious new female Lombax protagonist named Rivet. We will surely see more of her and other characters in the gameplay deep dive that will last for more than 15 minutes.
As for what the two upcoming indie games could be, they could be one of the games featured in the most recent State of Play from February 2021, including Kena: Bridge of Spirits, the Kung Fu-inspired Sifu, Heart Machine’s Solar Ash, or Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach.
It’s also been a while since we’ve heard updates for Braid: Anniversary Edition, Jett: The Far Shore, Stray, or Goodbye Volcano High. Obviously, these games could always be surprises and something no one has heard of yet.
