PlayStation 5: Sony reveals PS5 console and games

Sony Interactive’s been tight-lipped about the PlayStation 5, but finally released the first details of the new console during a live-stream on Thursday.

Announced at the top of the live-stream, among the first titles for the PS5 will be another installment in the beloved “Spider-Man” series, this time focusing on Miles Morales. Officially titled “Spider-Man: Miles Morales,” it will be released later this year over the holiday season, which marks a major surprise.

Some of the biggest reveals came near the end of the broadcast, including a remake or remaster of “Demon’s Soul” from Bluepoint Games and Japan Studio. The next “Resident Evil” game, titled “Resident Evil 8: Village,” got a new trailer and gameplay. But the big closer: the sequel to “Horizon Zero Dawn,” “Horizon: Forbidden West,” was unveiled, showing off a new cinematic trailer with Aloy riding a robotic horse. A release date was not announced.
