It's called Before Your Eyes and launches on March 10.
Destiny 2: Lightfall launches on PS5 next week, so the game is having its launch trailer shown off now. We see the Witness shown off as an epic space battle occurs and the main protagonist's entire fleet is seemingly destroyed in an instant.

Tchia, the colorful island-based exploration game is being shown off now, showcasing the protagonist sailing throughout the world, climbing trees, jumping off cliffs and soaring through the forests. We also see them take the place of a bird and dolphin through their special eye. The game launches on March 21.
From the creators of Tetris Effect and Rez: Infinite comes a new game called Humanity. The player seemingly controls a dog running throughout blocky environments as they attempt to move an entire population of people to their destination. It's clearly a puzzle game with a minimalist aesthetic and it's launching in May. It's also playable with a creation mode, allowing users to make their own levels.
Goodbye Volcano High got a new trailer showcasing the rhythm-focused gameplay and how the animations will look in-game, alongside the decisions the player can make along the way. It seems like much of the game takes a visual novel style when the main cutscenes aren't playing. It launches on June 15.

Wayfinder is being shown off now, an online multiplayer fantasy game where the player runs around the world and beats on a series of enemies through melee attacks and long-range abilities. Boss fights to attain loot seem to be a huge part of the game, with the beta coming exclusively to PlayStation on February 28.
Street Fighter 6 is getting three new characters shown off now. The first is Zangief in all of his muscly glory beating on enemies with his unbelievable strength. The next character is a wind-based fighter who has gusts surrounding her. Her name is Lily and she uses these enormous curved blunt weapons to beat on her foes. The final character being shown off is Cammy, the classic British-based fighter who kicks butt with her giant muscles and thunderous thighs.
Resident Evil 4 Remake is being shown off now, giving us a deeper look at the more action-focused gameplay, the story moments that we remember so well and how the player will have to run around the castle to protect Ashley. Some of the game's most iconic moments, including the minecart and helicopter sequence, are clearly back in full glory. We also see the classic Krauser boss fight.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is being shown off now for its 15-minute presentation. We're shown a mission of the Squad being put up against an evil version of the Flash. A giant purple mechanical tentacle-like device drops onto a section of the city and begins destroys everything.
The Suicide Squad is shown going face to face with a tank while also battling against corrupted technology in general, like giant modified men and helicopters. It's clear the focus of this game is the movement, with the player running and jumping around the city to accomplish their various goals. It launches on PS5 on May 26, 2023. We're being shown how each character works, alongside support characters including the Penguin, Hack, Toyman, and Gizmo.
