The biggest surprise announcement of the showcase definitely goes to Marvel’s Wolverine which is also being developed by Insomniac Games. Nothing much has been revealed about the game seeing how early in development Marvel’s Wolverine actually is. All we know is that the game is being spearheaded by the creative minds who developed Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. No release date for the game has been announced.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
The remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has been on the rumour mill for a while now and for it to finally be confirmed is pretty great for fans of the original game. The original KOTOR has always been regarded as one of the best video games and RPGs ever to be released. The game is set some 4,000 years before the original Star Wars trilogy and introduces you to a new set of characters to help bring peace to the galaxy.
The KOTOR remake is headed by Aspyr who are no strangers to the series as they are responsible for many ports and re-releases of older Star Wars games including the Android and iOS ports of the original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. The remake is set to be a timed exclusive for the PS5 with a PC release due after that.

God of War Ragnarök
Santa Monica Studios revealed the first look at their upcoming game God of War Ragnarök. The trailer sees both Kratos and his son Atreus after the events of 2018’s God of War, after their confrontation with Baldur. God of War Ragnarök is set to release next year.

Pokdepinion: I am so very excited about all of these games especially Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Not only do I love the first game but he was my favourite comic book character growing up. Still is actually.
