Death Stranding is a surreal, action game developed by Kojima Productions. It is the first title by Hideo Kojima, after the disbandment of Kojima Productions in 2015. Interestingly, famous actors Mads Mikkelsen and Norman Reedus will portray the leading characters in the game, as will director Guillermo del Toro, through motion capture, facial scanning and vocal recording. It is said this game is in a way a follow up of Kojima’s cancelled game called Silent Hills, as Norman Reedus also portrayed the main character in that game. The trailer of the game showcase what could be a very eerie, surreal and disturbing game.

THE LAST OF US 2
I’m sure we are all well familiar with the original The Last Of Us, so the next installment probably doesn’t need too much explaining. In short, it is an upcoming action-adventure survival horror game developed by Naughty Dog, and will serve as the sequel to 2013’s The Last Of Us. The trailer revealed the return of main characters Ellie and Joel. Players will take control of Ellie, and interestingly in contrast with the original game, which was centered around love, The Last Of Us 2 will mostly be centered around hate.

The imp is customizable, and has the ability to passess characters featured in a dream.
SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS
What people claim to arguable be the most prominent announcement at the PS pre-E3 conference, Shadow Of The Colossus is the updated version of the 2005 classic. Back then, it had jaw dropping graphics for its time, and the trailer for the updated version is equally spectacular. It is unclear if it will be a remake, a remaster or an entirely new game. The game is set to be released mid-2018, and it promises to be a great adventure.
