Sony State of Play: 30 minutes of new Deathloop gameplay, indies, and more

Deathloop State of Play

Sony is back again today with its next State of Play presentation — a series of live streams that showcase new and upcoming PlayStation games — featuring new Deathloop gameplay, indie titles, and more. After the Horizon Forbidden West State of Play back in May, Sony has made it quite clear we won’t be seeing any more of Guerilla’s upcoming open world epic, nor will the next God of War or next-generation PS VR details make an appearance, but we are expecting quite a “lengthy gameplay segment” from Bethesda’s upcoming time-bending FPS, Deathloop, among other things. It all starts now, and you can follow along down below. 

Deathloop gameplay and more in today’s State of Play:

Arkane’s next big release, Deathloop, will feature an almost rogue-like approach to what is essentially the groundhog day of FPS shooters. Alongside that special Arkane touch — many of the gameplay elements are pulled right from its Dishonored series — there appears to be some somewhat unique multiplayer action here as well as an interesting 1960’s-like setting. But most of the guesswork will be no more once today’s State of Play is through. It releases September 14, 2021, and pre-orders are now live.

That, along with “gameplay deep dives, new trailers, and more,” are all on tap for today’s roughly 30-minute presentation, and you can watch the whole thing down below or over on YouTube. We will be updating this post with the biggest announcements and full-res trailers as they come available as well:

Tune in to State of Play on Thursday, July 8 for nine minutes of extended Deathloop gameplay, plus approximately 20 minutes of updates on indies and exciting third-party games. This showcase will not include updates on new PS VR hardware, nor Horizon Forbidden West or the next God of War. Stay tuned throughout the summer though, as we’ll have more updates soon.


Moss Book II

First up is PSVR game, Moss Book II. It is “currently in development.”

Lined with dangerous terrain, challenging puzzles, and enemies twisted in fire and steel, Quill’s journey will be trying—filled with triumph and heartbreak alike—but new allies, old friends, and the very nature of the castle itself can help as she works to save the world from a great unmaking.
