Sony will host its latest PlayStation State of Play event later today, April 29th. The event is expected to bring us new updates on PlayStation games, including a new image of the PS5 game Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Here’s everything you need to know about Sony PlayStation State of Play, April 2021.
How to watch Sony’s PlayStation State of Play event
The new State of Play event will begin at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time (2:30 a.m. IST). The event can be streamed live from Sony’s YouTube channel. You can also view the event live from our embedded link below once the event begins.
PlayStation State of Play: What to Expect
The new event is expected to showcase about 15 minutes of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart gameplay that will introduce us to the game’s new female protagonist, named Rivet. Sony is also expected to show more on two new independent games.
While we don’t know what titles it is, it’s possible that the games could belong to the titles that Sony showed at its last PlayStation State of Play event in February. These include Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Kung Fu-inspired Sifu, Heart Machine ash or Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach.
Players waiting for more information on titles like God of War Ragnarok or Horizon Forbidden West may be disappointed, as Sony is not expected to reveal more about these titles without at least some previous teasers.
PlayStation Video Pass
Sony is also expected to announce more details about PlayStation Video Pass, its own subscription-based service that is likely to complement its existing PlayStation Plus subscription, and that could help the brand gain an edge over Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass .
Numerous reports have suggested that Sony is already testing the video streaming service in Poland and that it could soon reach other regions. The PS Video Pass will include big names from Sony movies, such as Bloodshot, Jumanji: The Next Level, Zombieland 2: Double Tap, Baby Driver and more.
