Everything Announced at Sony’s February 25th State of Play Stream

The announcement for this stream came out of nowhere this week, but we’ve managed to check out all the news from the February 25th’s State of Play. Here are the highlights:

  • Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is getting PS5 upgrades on March 12th. Faster loading, DualSense features like haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, 3D audio, and the ability to transfert your saves as well!
  • Returnal is still coming on April 30th, but we saw some new gameplay and heard some more details about the world and story.
  • Knockout City, first shown off in Nintendo’s Direct, is coming on May 21st. Looks like a fun take on dodgeball!
  • Sifu was announced from Sloclap and looks to be an excellent brawling game with a kun-fu influence. It’s coming sometime in 2021
  • Solar Ash from the creators of Hyper Light Drifer showed some new gameplay and confirmed a 2021 release date.
  • Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach received it’s first new footage and seems to be a big upgrade for the series with fully open environments and enhanced graphics.
  • Oddworld: Soulstorm is coming April 6th, and it’s going to be free for PlayStation Plus members!
  • Kena: Bridge of Spirits is coming August 21st and looks absolutely stunning as always. Like a Studio Ghibli film meets Pixar.
  • Deathloop showed some new gameplay, along with a confirmation of a May 21st release. Looks like another hit from Dishonored developer Arkane Studios
  • Final Fantasy VII is coming to PS5 as a free upgrade for existing users. Not only that, but a new story DLC starring Yuffie will be available the same day: June 10th. It’s entitled Final Fantasy VII Remake: Intergrade.

Some interesting updates in here! Seems like we’ll have to wait for the summer before some bigger releases start coming out, but in the meantime, let us know what you think of the latest State of Play in the comments!
