While Xbox held a showcase during Gamescom, Sony will be showing what’s next for the PlayStation 5 in its own separate showcase today. The PlayStation Showcase will be Sony’s first event since the company’s last PlayStation State of Play in July, where we received updates on several new and existing titles, including Death Stranding Director’s Cut, Sifu, and Death loop. So you can see today’s stream and what you can realistically expect from it.
When is the PlayStation Showcase stream?
This week’s PlayStation Showcase will air today at 1:00 p.m. PT. According to an announcement for the event on the PS blog, the showcase will last around 40 minutes and include a post-show with updates from developers that will be unveiled during the showcase.
Where can I watch the PlayStation Showcase stream?
Viewers can watch the upcoming PlayStation Showcase stream on PlayStation’s YouTube and Twitch channels.
What to expect from the PlayStation Showcase
While an announcement post for the PlayStation Showcase stream sets out (albeit vaguely) what viewers can expect, Sony’s recent announcements for PlayStation may give us some details. The stream will “feature updates from PlayStation Studios and some of the industry’s most imaginative game developers to be released this holiday and beyond.” However, the post specifically states that the next-generation iteration of PlayStation VR will not be present on the show.
As for the games and developers we’re about to see specifically, there are some reasonable predictions. For starters, we’ll likely see more of this Horizon Forbidden West, which was recently postponed to early 2022. Sifu, which featured in a number of Sony’s State of Play presentations earlier this year, has a good chance of showing up too.
