In a PlayStation Blog post, the company outlined what audiences can expect to be revealed throughout the show. The main focus is third-party titles coming to both the PS4 and PS VR headset.

Sony also noted that there will be no updates for the upcoming PS5 console during the upcoming State Of Play presentation. This means that no additional details about the PS5 on “hardware, business, preorders or dates” will be shared.

The company also reiterated that the main “focus is squarely on showcasing some cool upcoming games coming to the broader PlayStation ecosystem”.

This event marks the first update from the company since the PS5 reveal in June revealed many upcoming third-party titles. Resident Evil Village was announced and brand new titles such as sci-fi horror Returnal also made an appearance.

A host of first-party titles from pre-existing franchises were also confirmed to be receiving sequels, such as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and a sequel to the popular PS4 title, Horizon Zero Dawn.
