Sonic x Shadow Generations
Unveiled at the State of Play, Sonic X Shadow Generations is an upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog platformer with typical speedy platforming challenges built for Sonic and Shadow.

Zenless Zone Zero
Zenless Zone Zero is an upcoming game by HoYoverse (miHoYo), and during the PlayStation State of Play, we received confirmation that it will be coming to PlayStation 5 consoles. Previous games by HoYoverse have all come to PlayStation, so it makes sense for their latest game to follow suit. If you want to know more about the game, you can check out our coverage here.
There was no release date mentioned for Zenless Zone Zero.
Foamstars launches as part of the PlayStation Monthly Games for February next week, and we received a trailer detailing their upcoming plans for seasonal content. They have planned the first year of updates, with ranked matches, limited-time elements, characters, maps, and more coming to the game. There will be a new season every 5 weeks in Foamstars, so content will get added quite often.
Foamstars will be available for PlayStation Plus Subscribers on February 6 and will be available for purchase a month later in March.
Dave The Diver
Dave The Diver announced that it’s coming to PlayStation alongside a new update that will introduce Godzilla to the game. There weren’t too many other details noted about the upcoming update.

The game will launch in 2024 for PlayStation 5. No exact date was mentioned at this time.
Silent Hill: The Short Message premiered with an ominous and terrifying narrative-based trailer, but what else could we expect from this iconic series? This looks to be a short teaser game, similar to what P.T. was for PlayStation 4.
The game is available now and will be free and exclusive on PlayStation 5.
Silent Hill 2
Silent Hill 2 received a new combat trailer with some of the enemies you will face in the game. While it may disappoint some fans that there is no release date, the combat animations look very unpolished, and it’s likely a good thing that this isn’t coming out any time soon.
“From the creators of Bioshock” is almost all you need to know about Judas. The PlayStation State of Play premiered a story trailer for the game, and it already looks incredible. It looks to keep some of the same graphical design and inspiration from the Bioshock series while also making your decisions the center of the narrative.
No release date was announced for Judas.
Metro Awakening is an upcoming PS VR2 game and promises to be the most immersive Metro experience yet. The game is a story-driven first-person adventure built exclusively for VR that blends atmospheric exploration, stealth, and combat.
The game will launch in 2024 for PS VR2, Meta Quest, and Steam VR.

The game will exit Steam Early Access on February 8, 2024, which coincides with the PS VR2launch.
Dragon’s Dogma 2
Dragon’s Dogma 2 is an upcoming single-player action RPG for PlayStation 5 and throws you into an expansive fantasy world caught between human and beast kingdoms.

The game will launch in 2024 for PlayStation 5 and PC.
Death Stranding 2
No enjoyable PlayStation State of Play is complete without a mention of Hideo Kojima, and we received an extended look at Death Stranding 2. The trailer hinted at the basis of the narrative with some incredible combat moments, but, of course, nothing will be as it seems.
Death Stranding 2 will launch in 2025 for PlayStation 5.
Hideo Kojima also appeared at the end of the PlayStation State of Play to note that he will be creating an action espionage game that will be the culmination of his work and bridge the gap between film and video games. This will begin development after Death Stranding 2.
