Everything Sony dropped at the Paris Games Week Press Conference
David Cage’s new game is called Detroit
Building on the Kara video demo, David Cage revealed Quantic Dream’s new title called Detroit and follows the story of one Android in a big city.
If you’ve not heard of Kara, she’s an Android that wants to live, feel human emotions and get out of the factory she is “born” in. In fact, she wants to see the world.
But sadly, it’s not quite as she imagined, where Androids are slaves and just machines to the humans.
That’s all we currently know about Detroit, but we’re very excited.
Gran Turismo 7 officially announced – as Gran Turismo Sport
Move over Forza 6 and the rest of you racers, we’ve finally had the official announcement of Gran Turismo 7 but it’s actually called Gran Turismo Sport.
Of course, the graphics, audio and other features are all going to be given the PS4 edge with the game being called the best looking Gran Turismo game yet.
However, there’s more to it than that. Within Gran Turismo Sport there’s going to be two flagship FIA Championships running simultaneously throughout the year. One is the Nations Cup where you respresent your home country and the other is the Manufacturers Fan Cup where you play as your favourite manufacturer.
The prize giving will be presented alongside real-life racing stars such as Lewis Hamilton, which is probably a first for the gaming industry.
The Gran Turismo Sport open beta will start sometime early next year, but there’s no word on a release date as yet.
However, it has been revealed that the developer is working on being compatible with PlayStation VR – although potentially not at launch.
Shamans get Wild in well, WiLD
The upcoming game from Rayman creator Michel Ancel has been a bit quiet, but WiLD got some serious show time at Paris Games Week.
Shamans can learn how to call on nature’s help to heal, and even discover how to take control of the animal’s themselves, learning how to use their unique skills to your advantage. And that’s something you’ll need to do in the game’s harsh world.
For example, the eagle has superb sight, while the bear is a fearsome, but sturdy steed.
You’ll also need to work out how the seasons, time of day and weather will affect your abilities.
The demo showcased at Paris Games Week saw the Shaman trying to heal a villager with a snake bite. Eventually he had to sneak into the cannibal camp using a rabbit to see what they’re up to, and then use the ravens to create a distraction so the Shaman can get to the sacred site with an advantage.
There’s going to be an Until Dawn PlayStation VR game
Supermassive Games has its own PlayStation VR game up its sleeve. Building on the Until Dawn PS4 game launched earlier this year, it’s time to talk about Until Dawn: Rush of Blood.
It sounds like it’ll be some kind of rail-based scarer but there was no gameplay shown off at Paris Games Week, so your guess is as good as ours.
Crytek is making a PlayStation VR game called Robinson: The Journey
And it’s all about dinosaurs. Crytek might have teased its VR game before, but the developer used Paris Games Week to really show off its upcoming title.
You play as an explorer dropped into a world populated by dinosaurs – all you’ve got to do is survive. Easy right?
No Man’s Sky release date finally confirmed
Well, thank goodness for that. We finally know that we’ll be able to play No Man’s Sky in June 2016. Yes, that’s quite a way off yet, but now we have a semi-concrete date in our diaries at last.

We got a long first-hand look at Dreams
Media Molecule’s upcoming game Dreams is a bit of an enigma. But in an attempt to shed some light on its next major title, the developer took to Paris Games Week to give it a proper showcase.
Every player in Dreams will get their own imp, which they can customise and give a unique facial expression. You’ll use this to move objects, interact with the world and also possess characters with the dreams themselves.
Depending on the specific dream you walk into you’ll be able to interact with the world in a variety of ways. There are thousands of characters to create and play with, or you’ll be able to change the world you’re in – add tress or other pre-created items for example.
And what’s more a beta is coming early 2016.

Horizon: Zero Dawn given a long spotlight
If there’s one PS4 exclusive we’re ridiculously excited about it’s Horizon: Zero Dawn. Guerilla Games took to the stage at Paris Games Week to showcase it’s upcoming take on the post-apocalyptic world in a lengthy gameplay session.
The developer took time to show off the game’s ridiculous graphical prowess, the heavily armoured monsters and of course, our flame-haired heroine Aloy.
As she collects the precious cannisters from fallen grazers, we’re given a quick glimpse at the crafting potential of the game, but it’s not long before she’s again faced with an Iron Jaw.
There’s still no word on a release date for this game, but gosh do we want to play it.
DriveClub is getting bikes
DriveClub just got bikes and you can download the DLC right now. You get a brand new campaign and more content to play with, so you’ll want to hit PSN ASAP.
Gravity Rush 2 features a brand new combat system
The upcoming Gravity Rush 2, building on its PS Vita roots, features a brand new combat system. In the PS4 title, you’ll be able to experiment with three types of gravity when tackling enemies.
You’ll get the normal ability to Manipulate Gravity, but there’s also Lunar Style Gravity that lowers gravity to make you lighter and faster. But then there’s Jupiter Style Gravity that makes you slower but a lot more powerful.

Sadly the details were a little scant, but we’ll keep you posted.
Boundless is a brand new game coming to PS4

The PS4 is getting an indie rhythm game called Vector
If you’re not satisfied by games like Rock Band 4 or Guitar Hero Live, you might be more happy with a game like Vector.
Coming from a developer called Hello There in conjunction with Avicii, Vector is “a new kind of rhythm game” with lots of beats and bleeps.
Matterfall is another new game from Housemarque
The Dead Nation developer has been busy of late. Not only has it got Alienation on the way, but it just announced another new game called Matterfall, which combines the arcade fighter it’s known for with some seriously stunning graphics.
