The first of the games at the Gamescom event was Scarlet Nexus. It should take place in futuristic settings, where the world is drowned in discord due to an impending mutant threat. While people are struggling to survive the day, scientists have commenced a research project to grant people supernatural powers. A metahuman team is assembled to be the guarding force of mankind.
You will have to utilize a set of weapons and combine them with various abilities to progress through the game. But while the plot we saw in the trailer was goose-bumping, there is very little information about the actual gameplay.
Have you missed cosmic horrors, like Doom or Alien: Isolation? Sony has got you covered with Quantum Error. The game will take us to a distant spacecraft filled with horrors unknown before. While the character is, allegedly, stuck all alone there and has to face the beasts, there is a whole set of weaponry and skills to be used.
They claim that the game will be more than just a pointless walk-about but infused with puzzle-solving, quest-completing, and stunning visuals. This, along with the plot, should let us experience what real cosmic horror is.
Based on the eastern philosophy of world perception, the game is an RPG that takes us to five different element-related dimensions. Apart from the ultrahigh-quality graphics, the game is embedded into a non-linear plot where each decision leads to a new outcome and overall consequences.
The developers claim that the game is mostly single-player, but a three-person-player is also an option. Who knows what else Sony has prepared for us, but it will be stunning.
Sony brings a new add-on to the original Destiny series, which aims at expanding the universe. The character will have to explore a new plotline on Europa, Jupiter’s moon, where everything is nothing but ice, snow, and the Darkness. Besides new abilities, there are fresh in-game features, like dungeons, weaponry, and game modes. Though there isn’t much anything else to tell about the game, we are already intrigued.
The pinnacle of the Gamescom 2020 games list, Rift Apart, is a shooter sequel of the acclaimed Ratchet & Clank series. Besides the classic Ratchet character, you will have others, Lombax and Clank, at your disposal. Now, it will be possible to jump between locations using portals. This should prove most useful, especially since the developers are returning the locations and planets we have already explored before.
These and many other games were promised by Sony to be released throughout 2020. Let’s hope the pandemic hasn’t heard of the Gamescom PS games just yet.
