It's time for PlayStation 5. Sony will give us our first look at games for the PS5 in an online-only event after midnight on Thursday, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. There's no word on what those games will be, but most of them will be launch titles, with Sony saying as much its announcement earlier this week. The only clue? The PS5 games about to be revealed for will come from studios both large and small, Sony noted. The PS5 event will run for around an hour, if that's any indicator of how many games you can expect to see.
Of course, it's possible that Sony will use some of that time to introduce the PS5 itself. While we've seen the new DualSense controller and we know the PS5's specifications, we don't know what it actually looks like, let alone what it will cost when it arrives later this year. Sony's only advice for the PS5 event is to wear headphones while watching, as “there's some cool audio work in the show, and it might be harder to appreciate if it's pumped through your phone or laptop speakers.”
The PS5 event kicks off at 1:30am IST on Friday, June 12. For those in the US, that's 1pm PDT / 4pm EDT on Thursday, June 11. Use this handy converter to find out what time the PS5 event starts in your city.
Unfortunately, no. The PS5 event will be locked to 1080p 30fps to ease the show's production process since everyone's working from home, Sony said in its announcement. It's possible that some PS5 game trailers will be available in 4K on YouTube later.
Even if that doesn't happen, don't worry, all the games you'll see will still run at 4K on the PS5.
The PS5 is slated for a Q4 2020 — that's October to December — launch worldwide.
