No developers. No mascots. No YouTubers. And besides a couple of brief addresses by President & CEO, Shawn Layden, no Sony execs either.

Sony’s E3 presentation was one game trailer, one in-game footage segment after another highlighting Sony’s upcoming library of games.

Here is a breakdown of the key titles.

Spider-Man

Although it wrapped up the presentation, Spider-Man gave superhero fan a glimpse into the new game which included web-head using his webs and the environment to take down Demon gang members, an appearance by the Kingpin and a crazy helicopter battle with Mister Negative.


Uncharted: Lost Legacy

We got a glimpse of this standalone DLC starring Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross. In the heart of India, the treasure hunter and the mercenary seek the Tusk of Ganesha. Lost Legacy will be released on August 22.


God Of War

Kratos and his young son venture into the realm of the Nordic gods. Even Jörmungandr (the Midgard Serpent or World Serpent) makes an appearance.


Horizon: Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds

In this expansion, Aloy adventures in an arctic setting. Look for it later this year.


Detroit

Angry andriods fight for their right to party and otherwise be treated as human beings. As the leader of the revolution, you can choose to be passive or aggressive, such as firebombing a store selling andriods or not.


Days Gone

In an expanded look, we saw biker Deacon St. John ride off in search of his pal, a mechanic. John uses the environment to entrap his enemies, which includes blowing up a dam and letting a horde of zombies feast on them.


Shadow of the Colossus

The PS2 classic is being rebooted from the ground up for the PS4. We cannot wait.
