In September, Sony organized another Playstation Showcase and showed the happy PS5 owners which games they can look forward to in the next few months or even years – and some titles were really tough! For example, the subtitle of the next God of War has finally been announced: Ragnarök. There was initial information about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, the reveal of Marvel’s Wolverine, the announcement of a remaster of Uncharted 4 and Among Thieves and a remake of the RPG milestone Knights of the Old Republic. For our cover story we summarize all of this and more for you.
The second big preview theme is Far Cry 6, which hits stores next week. Shortly before the release, we had the opportunity to play extensively in the Caribbean shooter and tell you what the title does differently and what is still typical of the series. So you should have the most important information that you need to know about the start of the Ubisoft title. From then on, we had the opportunity to play Guardians of the Galaxy for the preview route, take a look at the reboot of the Saints Row series or do a few laps in Riders Republic.
In the test area we have several really big topics. First of all, we take a look at the time loop shooter Deathloop from the makers of the Dishonored games and Prey. Despite the chic premise, the title did not fully convince us in the test – we will of course tell you why! We also put the third part of the Life-is-Strange series True Colors through its paces and check whether Psychonauts 2 can build on its iconic predecessor despite the eternal waiting time. In the specials we focus on the important topic of environmental protection in the video game industry and highlight Blizzard’s decline in recent years.
