Usually around this time of year, gaming fans are getting together to watch E3, a video game showcase that reveals all of the new things coming to a multitude of platforms. But this year, E3 didn’t put together a show and several smaller shows have taken its place.
One of those is the PlayStation State of Play, which is a part of Summer Game Fest. The State of Play is the first of the showcases that are happening in June. The next will be Summer Game Fest on June 9, followed by the Xbox and Bethesda showcase on June 12.
There are some smaller showcases sprinkled in there, too. But for now, here is everything that was showcased in the June 2022 PlayStation State of Play.

Before now, Street Fighter has always been a fighting-only game. But now, it looks like fans are in for more content. There looks to be an open world in addition to hard-hitting action and fighting. Paired with great-looking art and a bumping playlist of music, this game is sure to please any Street Fighter fan.
