PlayStation will host a new edition of its regular State of Play video presentation today, Wednesday 31 January 2024.

It will give us a great look at upcoming PS5 and PSVR2 releases planned for release this year and even beyond. You can watch it below.

Some of the big names that are confirmed to appear include Stellar Blade and Rise of the Ronin, with "extended looks" at both. However, it is also strongly tipped that we'll see more on Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding 2, too.

How to watch the PlayStation State of Play presentation

You can watch the PlayStation State of Play for January 2024 via the video at the top of this page.

Alternatively, you will be able to watch it on PlayStation's own YouTube channel, Twitch or TikTok.

What to expect

According to the official Sony PlayStation Blog, the new State of Play will show games for PS5 and PSVR2 that are coming in "2024 and beyond".

Two confirmed titles to be given "extended looks" are Sony's own Stellar Blade – an action-adventure from Shift Up – and Team NINJA's much-anticipated Rise of the Ronin.

The latter is an open-world action RPG with a heavy slant on combat.

There is also a lot of chatter about Death Stranding 2 making an appearance. We saw a brief glimpse of it during The Game Awards 2022, but little else since. We wouldn't be surprised if it didn't finish the presentation with a big bang.

Here's the original teaser trailer to give you a taste of what we can expect.

Sony has also revealed that the first State of Play of 2024 will be over 40 minutes long, so there will be plenty to get through.
