PlayStation Paris Games Week Recap: New Sucker Punch Game, Trailers for Last of Us 2 and Spider-Man, Spelunky 2

New games and trailers from Sony's surprisingly big Paris games showcase.

Sony just wrapped up its press conference at Paris Games Week, and there was a surprising amount of games shown off at the European event. If you missed the early morning live stream, we've recapped some of the biggest games announced at today's event.

A Bunch of PSVR and Indie Games

The pre-show for Sony's Paris Games Week conference included a rundown of some of the biggest VR and indie games coming to the console. These include indie offerings like Guacamelee! 2 and Spelunky 2. Meanwhile, there will also be new VR offerings like Dead Hungry from Pixel Junk developers, Q-Games, to gorgeous indie VR titles like Megalith, Sprint Vector, Star Child, and Stifled. There's even a standalone Final Fantasy XV VR fishing game that I hear is actually really fun.

Sucker Punch has a new game coming out

Infamous developers, Sucker Punch, finally announced a new game following 2014's Infamous Second Son and First Light. Titled, Ghost of Tushima, the trailer is light on details but shows off a new, feudal Japan setting. It's a completely different world than the modern superhero setting of the studio's Infamous series, but I'd wager that you can expect to find a lot of the same action-adventure elements in Sucker Punch's newest joint.

Monster Hunter World Beta for PS Plus Members

On December 9, PlayStation Plus members will get an exclusive beta for Capcom's upcoming Monster Hunter World. No details yet, but there will also be DLC Horizon Zero Dawn costumes as a promotional tie-in for the final game.

Destiny 2 DLC

Destiny 2 launched on PC last week, so now the studio is moving on ahead with the first major expansion for the sequel. Titled, Curse of Osiris, the first Destiny 2 DLC will take Guardians to the previously (mostly) uncharted planet of Mercury where Guardians are tasked by Ikora to track down her old mentor, Osiris. The DLC is slated for December 5.

Shadow of the Colossus

So, Shadow of the Colossus is coming out on PlayStation 4, but the new trailer completely blew the lid on what we should expect from the re-release. While the details are still a bit murky, it looks like Shadow of the Colossus looks to be more than just a quick HD remaster for the PS4. Either that, or Bluepoint is just showing off how good their HD skills are at this point.

First Call of Duty: WWII DLC detailed

Coming out on January 30, the first DLC for Call of Duty: WWII is called "The Resistance". It will reinterpret key battles during the invasion of Normandy while also presumably venturing into territories like France, Poland, and Czechoslovakia. No details yet on whether this is a multiplayer DLC or if single-player story missions will also be included.

New racing game, Onrush, from ex-MotorStorm developers

Codemasters' new racing game comes to you by way of ex-MotorStorm developers who are now a part Codemasters' UK Cheshire team. Frantic, manic, and all kinds of explosive crazy, OnRush is very much the spiritual successor to the MotorStorm genre of racing.

New trailers for Spider-Man, God of War, Detroit: Become Human, and The Last of Us 2

These are all games that have been announced previously, but today we have several new trailers for Sony's biggest upcoming games. These include a new story trailer for Insomniac's Spider-Man, a new story trailer for God of War, a new story trailer for Quantic Dream's Detroit: Become Human, and a new (shocking) trailer for Naughty Dog's The Last of Us 2. Check them all out in our best trailers recap post.
