When Sony showcased Concord at last year’s PlayStation Showcase, we didn’t know what to expect from Firewalk Studios’ multiplayer PvP FPS.

Now we do, as Sony and Firewalk presented a cinematic trailer and in-engine gameplay for this colorful 5v5 hero shooter featuring a group of alien adventurers. Concord is coming to PS5 and PC on August 23. **God of War Ragnarök coming to PC** The latest adventure of Kratos and Atreus is arriving on Windows PC this year.

God of War Ragnarök, originally released for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in 2022, will get a long-awaited port for Windows on September 19, with support for super ultrawide screens, Nvidia DLSS 3.7, AMD FSR 3.1, and Intel XESS 1.3.

The PC version of Ragnarök will also include the Valhalla DLC. **Astro Bot returns in a new Sony PS5 game** The star of Astro’s Playroom and Astro Bot Rescue Mission returns in a brand-new game for PlayStation 5 developed by Team Asobi.

Simply called Astro Bot, the game is full of love for PlayStation. Astro can transform into iconic PlayStation characters, including Kratos, Aloy, and Nathan Drake, and even turn into a PlayStation 5 console. Astro Bot is coming to PS5 on September 6.

**Marvel Rivals coming to PS5 (and Xbox)** Marvel and NetEase’s team-based hero shooter featuring heroes and villains from the Marvel Universe is coming to PS5. Marvel Rivals is currently in closed testing on PC, with console versions slated for later this year.

A beta test for consoles will be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X in July. **Sony announces release date for the Silent Hill 2 remake** Konami and Bloober Team’s remake of the early 2000s horror classic, Silent Hill 2, now has a release date.

Silent Hill 2 is coming to PS5 on October 8. A new eerie trailer shows what we can expect from the new version. **Return of Dynasty Warriors** Koei Tecmo and Omega Force haven’t released a new game in the Dynasty Warriors series since 2018.

That will change with Dynasty Warriors: Origins, coming to PS5 in 2025, which will also be available on Windows PC and Xbox Series X. **Path of Exile 2 coming to PS5** Path of Exile 2, the next iteration of Grinding Gear Games' free-to-play action RPG, is coming to PS5 as well as PC.

The Diablo 4 alternative is set years after the original Path of Exile, sending players into the dark world of Wraeclast where they will try to stop the spread of corruption. Early access begins on PS5 this fall. **Sony brings Until Dawn remastered** The interactive horror game Until Dawn from Supermassive Games is coming to PS5 and Windows PC this fall, revamped and improved.

At State of Play, we got a glimpse of what the remaster studio Ballistic Moon has brought to the 2015 original. **Where Winds Meet** You might remember Where Winds Meet from Gamescom Opening Night Live 2022, where the ambitious Wuxia-style open-world action RPG was first revealed.

Where Winds Meet is now confirmed for PS5, with a new trailer showcasing gameplay.
**Ballad of Antara announced** The development team behind Pascal’s Wager revealed their new game, Ballad of Antara, a highly ambitious Soulslike action game coming to PS5 in 2025.

According to the game’s official description, “A distant land is on the brink of destruction due to conflicts from long ago and an ensuing invasion. Embark on a perilous journey, seek out divine creatures, to reclaim the distorted and lost foundations of the world”.

**Behemoth gameplay arrives on Sony PSVR 2** Skydance’s Behemoth promised an adventure through strange, alien environments and battles against huge monsters at State of Play, with “intense VR combat and realistic physics”.

PSVR 2 owners will be able to test these claims when Behemoth arrives later this year, according to Polygon. This was perhaps the best state of play so far.
