Sony’s first State of Play of 2024 was packed with exciting announcements and trailers for upcoming PlayStation 5 and PlayStation VR 2 games. The 40-minute livestream showcased some of the most anticipated titles of the year, as well as some surprises from legendary game creators.

One of the biggest reveals was the new project from Hideo Kojima, the mastermind behind Metal Gear and Death Stranding. Kojima announced that he is working on a new “next-generation action-espionage game” called PHYSINT, which will blur the lines between games and movies. He also gave an update on Death Stranding 2: On the Beach, the sequel to his 2019 hit, which will feature a talking puppet and a cast of famous actors, including George Miller and Fatih Akin. Death Stranding 2: On the Beach is slated for a 2025 release.

Another highlight of the event was the return of Silent Hill, the iconic horror franchise from Konami. Konami surprised fans with two Silent Hill games at the PlayStation Showcase. The first one, The Short Message, is a new and free experimental game that lets players explore the eerie town of Silent Hill. The game, which features Anita and Maya as the protagonists, was leaked last year, but officially revealed today with a trailer that confirmed the leak. The second game, Silent Hill 2, is a remake of the classic horror game by Bloober Team, the makers of The Medium. The remake, which was announced in 2022, showed some new gameplay footage, but no release date. However, fans can download and play The Short Message from the PlayStation Store.
