Sony fans have numerous ways to enjoy the company’s E3 press conference when it airs live on Monday, June 15th at 6pm PDT. They can watch the Sony E3 2015 press conference in movie theaters, they can watch it on their PlayStation devices, and they can also view it through the above livestream on the official PlayStation Twitch channel.
No matter how fans are watching the conference, they will all be able to look forward to seeing more of PS4’s biggest upcoming game, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Uncharted 4 is said to be the final adventure for popular protagonist Nathan Drake, but fans can look forward to plenty Uncharted adventures on PS4 nonetheless, as Drake’s original three adventures are being bundled and remastered as Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.
Out of all the press conferences that will be airing live throughout E3 week, Sony’s conference is by far the most mysterious, as far as first-party offerings go at least. Besides the aforementioned Uncharted titles, the Ratchet & Clank reboot, God of War 3 Remastered, and the rumor that Sony will be dedicating half of their E3 booth to Project Morpheus, itself likely to be a major focal point of their conference as well, Sony’s future first party offerings remain elusive.
It seems unlikely that Sony would be showcasing its E3 presentation in movie theaters in literally every state just to show off Uncharted, some remakes, and Project Morpheus. However, Sony themselves have admitted to having a sparse first-party lineup for 2015. Could it be that Sony has managed to avoid any major E3 leaks because they simply don’t have that stellar of a show planned?
Sony will probably look to bolster their conference with high quality third-party games, a strategy that has worked the past couple of years. Console exclusive titles like Street Fighter 5, which Capcom insists will never release on Xbox, and the indie darling that Sony has given plenty of love since its announcement, No Man’s Sky, are both likely to receive huge spotlights during the event.
Speculation also points to the next Destiny expansion being featured front and center during Sony’s E3. Last year, a sizable portion of Sony’s conference was dedicated to Bungie’s addicting shooter/RPG hybrid, and with The Taken King expansion’s price, release date, and more leaked, it’s almost a surefire bet that it will be at Sony’s E3 in some form.
Hopefully Sony has a first-party surprise or two in store for E3. One possible surprise could be the reemergence of the often delayed Team ICO’s The Last Guardian. With PS4 architect Mark Cerny reportedly helping to finish the game, there’s a greater chance this year than ever before for the ever elusive title to finally be shown off yet again at E3 2015.
