The sequel for God Of War was one of many announcements during the PS5 showcase, the most notable being Final Fantasy XVI and Hogwarts Legacy, a new game set in the Harry Potter universe.

Outside of game announcements, the biggest reveal was the price, release date and the pre-order information for both the standard and digital edition of the PS5. Pre-orders have begun going live and the consoles will release in select territories first before a global release.

Numerous titles were confirmed for launch, including Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls, Sackboy: A Big Adventure and Destruction AllStars.

Despite reports of production troubles, Sony has debunked rumours that the PS5 is facing manufacturing issues. The company originally upped the amount of consoles being made due to the on-going coronavirus pandemic, in an effort to capitalise on the fact that more people around the world are spending more time at home.
