Best trailers from PlayStation’s Paris Games Week

Sony made quite a big deal out of its press conference for Paris Games Week. In addition to announcing a release date for <em>No Man’s Sky</em> and spending ample time on its PlayStation VR (née Project Morpheus) headset, the company showed off dozens of new trailers for upcoming games. Here are some of our favorites.

<h2>Call of Duty Black Ops III… but with zombies</h2>
The new <em>Call of Duty</em> game will have two separate zombie-related stories (in addition to the actual <em>Black Ops</em> quest). <em>The Giant</em> is a continuation of one of the zombie stories from<em>Black Ops 2</em>, and if you didn’t realize there was a story and just wanted to kill zombies… you know… that’s an option, too. <em>The Giant</em> will be available on day one (November 6th) as part of the season pass.

<h2>Star Wars Battlefront</h2>
Han vs. Vader. Leia vs. Boba Fett. Look, maybe it isn’t <em>exactly</em> how it happened in the movies, but narrative continuity is taking a backseat to high scores.

<h2>Tekken 7</h2>
Actual footage from <em>Tekken 7</em> is sparse here — the game has had limited release in Japanese arcades since earlier this year, so it’s not hard to find — but the trailer does provide a pretty good look back at the 21-year-old franchise. <em>Tekken 7</em> will reportedly support PlayStation VR, which may or may not mean you’ll be able to have a first-person view of getting punched repeatedly in the face. It’s probably not that. Probably.

<h2>Matterfall</h2>
The developer of Resogun and Super Stardust have what looks like a new shooter where you take on crystal-infused baddies. No idea how it’ll actually play, but we imagine it’ll be frenetic.

<h2>Horizon Zero Dawn</h2>
Why this game isn’t called <em>Robot Dinosaurs</em>, we’ll never know. Here’s eight minutes of<em>Horizon Zero Dawn</em> which goes over some of the gameplay elements. Like, for example, taking down robot dinosaurs.

<h2>Uncharted 4 multiplayer</h2>
In past <em>Uncharted</em> games, multiplayer meant “someone on the couch yelling at the TV while you screw up.” <i>Uncharted 4</i> looks to have a pretty robust multiplayer experience, which in addition to the usually shoot-em-up experience looks to have some kind of system that lets you call in NPCs for assistance. Also there are magical powerups.

<h2>Dreams</h2>
Do you want to be a bear dressed like Hello Kitty climbing a tower of dessert? It’s a simple question. <em>Dreams</em>, from the makers of <em>LittleBigPlanet</em>, is an even more abstract creation tool. Here’s eight minutes of the developer explaining some of the method to the madness. A beta for <em>Dreams</em> is coming 2016.

<h2>PlayStation VR</h2>
While we still don’t have a release date for Sony’s virtual reality headset, Sony spent ample time at the event talking about its VR-focused lineup, which included a new title from Crytek (<em>Robinson: The Journey</em>), a weirdly on-rails <em>Until Dawn</em> spinoff, and an experience based on the film <em>The Walk</em>, where you walk a tightrope between two buildings.

<h2>Gran Turismo Sport</h2>
Think of it as <em>Gran Turismo 7 Prologue</em>. Developer Polyphony Digital is releasing its first<em>GT</em> title for the PlayStation 4. Most importantly, it’ll be VR compatible.

<h2>Wild</h2>
I’m just gonna steal <em>Polygon’s</em> description for this one: “<em>Wild</em> lets you summon giant snake women and more.” Okay. Michel Ancel, who created the <em>Rayman</em> series and <em>Beyond Good &amp; Evil</em>, is one of the minds behind the game. No release date, though.

<h2>Detroit</h2>
The latest from Quantic Dream (<em>Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls</em>) imagines Detroit as a hub for androids. Not much else is known, but fun fact: you might recall “Kara,” the trailer’s protagonist, from a tech demo Quantic Dreams showed off back in 2012.
