A Sony executive recently stated that The Last Guardian and Gran Turismo Sport are still set to launch in 2016. Philippe Cardon, South European Vice-President of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, discussed the PlayStation 4's lineup for 2016. Cardon said that, alongside Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, The Last Guardian and Gran Turismo Sport will combine to make this year better than 2015 for Sony. Gran Turismo Sport has been silent since Paris Games Week last October, while The Last Guardian hasn't been shown since E3. Read on for more information.

The PlayStation Plus lineup for May 2016 has been revealed, which includes six games across Sony's three platforms. Tropico 5, Table Top Racing: World Tour, and Switch Galaxy Ultra will all be available on PlayStation 4, while PlayStation 3 owners will get Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 and LocoRoco Cocoreccho! Additionally, Switch Galaxy Ultra is free on PlayStation Vita through cross-buy, and the handheld is also getting God of War: Ghost of Sparta. All of these titles will be downloadable for free as of May 3rd, meaning April's games will return to full price at the same time. Make the jump to view a trailer for this month's lineup.

2016 is a great year for fans of Ratchet & Clank, as the series is returning in a big way. A re-imagining of the original game released earlier this month on PlayStation 4, pulling in impressive review scores. Capitalizing on the hype, a movie based on the game just hit theaters yesterday. We don't know how much of a success the movie is yet, but the game debuted at number one in the UK, and developer Insomniac Games now reports that it's the fastest-selling title in franchise history. Exact sales figures for the game are not yet available.

Little is known about DICE's upcoming fifth installment in their Battlefield franchise; from what sparse news has trickled out over recent years, it is rumored that Battlefield 5 will take place during World War I and that a greater degree of destruction will be present compared to previous titles.

Now, DICE is about ready to lift their radio silence on Battlefield 5, and the developer is keen on pulling out all the stops with a "world premiere event" next Friday, May 6th. Eager fans can tune in to a livestream at 1:00 PM Pacific time on that day, though proper details regarding the broadcast have yet to be specified.

Earlier this week, a leaked trailer showcased some of the single player gameplay in the upcoming Doom reboot being developed by Id Software and Bethesda. Despite being taken down twice within a day or so, many fans were left excited for the shooter, even some of those who had been scorned by its less-than-successful multiplayer beta. The actual single player reveal occurred on Bethesda's Twitch page this past Wednesday, however. The livestream—which featured Martin Stratton and Hugo Martin, the executive producer and creative director of Doom respectively—focused on features that showed the developer's interest in keeping the feel of the original game while still modernizing it for 2016.

After leaving Capcom, Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune and the development team at Comcept began working on a spiritual successor to Mega Man known as Mighty No. 9. It's been over a year since the Kickstarter-funded action-platformer was originally scheduled to release, and we still don't have a concrete release date. Back in January, Mighty No. 9 was delayed for the third time (despite promises that there would be no more delays after the second), this time to a generic "Spring" release window.

Unfortunately, it's looking like Mighty No. 9 may be delayed yet again. Promotional materials for the long-awaited game were spotted at retailer EB Games, and they list a Summer 2016 release window for the game. Comcept has not yet commented on the supposed delay, and they haven't issued any updates on the game's Kickstarter since January.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution released in 2011, reviving the Deus Ex franchise and bringing it to the forefront of many gamers' attention. With multiple ways to accomplish goals, a variety of powers and abilities to employ, and a fascinating story of the first humans augmented with technology, the game was a big hit, and so of course developer Eidos Montreal started work on a sequel. Dubbed Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, this new title is coming out this August, and it looks to build off Revolution in a number of ways. To show all this off and give eager players a taste of what's to come, Eidos has released a new trailer today which reveals the basics of the plot and some of the mechanics the title will employ.

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was another slow week in Japan despite a flurry of new releases. Star Fox Zero made its debut in Japan last week, and between the standalone game and the Star Fox Guard bundle, it sold just over 25,000 copies. One Piece: Burning Blood took the top spot for the week on PlayStation 4, and its Vita version took the number two spot. Hardware sales remained relatively unchanged from last week.

An obscure countdown began recently on Persona 5's website, and is due to end on May 5th, at 8:30 AM eastern time. The countdown clock will end with a live broadcast themed around the game, Atlus has announced, that will start as soon as the clock hits zero. There's no further information on what the broadcast will entail, but many fans are eagerly awaiting an official release date. The current release window is Summer 2016 for Japan, and an even more vague 2016 window for western audiences.

This year has been an interesting one for trademarks, including everything from Nintendo "quality of life" products to mysterious game names from Sony like Days Done. But Sony apparently is not stopping there, with their Sony Computer Entertainment Europe branch registering a trademark for "The Sentinel." The listing doesn't give much information, but we do know it was classified as a game, with possible online functions.

Currently, the name is only registered within the European Union, but with E3 coming up it's possible more information is coming.

Dark Souls III's second DLC pack won't arrive until early 2017, director Hidetaka Miyazaki has confirmed in a recent interview. FromSoftware recently revealed that the first DLC pack will launch this fall, but there was no release window for the second. Both DLC packs are currently in development at FromSoftware, and they are set to include new locations, bosses, enemies, weapons, and armor. The Dark Souls III season pass, which will include both of the DLC packs, is available now for $24.99.

Rock Band 4 was released last year, and while many were happy to start up a band with their friends again, it was much more difficult if those friends were overseas. While previous iterations of Rock Band had online multiplayer, Rock Band 4's release left the online aspect completely out. Earlier this week, Harmonix announced that they would be bringing back "synchronous online multiplayer" later this year. Rock Band 4's online multiplayer will be just like Quickplay mode, except it will be modified to provide players a smooth and streamlined experience.

The ESRB has just released its rating for Driveclub VR, E for Everyone, which is interesting for a number of reasons. For starters, the development team behind Driveclub, Evolution Studios, was broken up last month. The studio's employees were re-located to other parts of what is now Sony Interactive Entertainment, so it's possible that another team has continued to develop Driveclub VR or that the game was already finished. Either way, the last we heard about the game was from the game's director, Paul Rustchynsky, when he stated on Twitter that more details about Driveclub VR would be revealed at E3 2016. Who knows what will be announced, but here's hoping its good news.

Naughty Dog is finally concluding the epic saga of Nathan Drake with Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. The hotly-anticipated game saw multiple delays, and it's now officially slated to launch on May 10th. Prior to the most recent delay, the PlayStation 4 exclusive was set to launch today, April 26th, but its street date was pushed back in order to ensure that enough copies could be manufactured for a well-stocked global launch.

Despite the fact that the game doesn't officially launch for another two weeks, reports have been coming in from all over that select retailers have started shipping the game out earlier. Additionally, Video Gamer spoke with a UK resident who was able to walk right into a CEX store in the UK and buy a physical copy of the game. According to his report (which includes a receipt that you can view by clicking below), the game runs fine with only occasional frame rate dips, though the multiplayer mode is not yet available and the DLC code included with the Day One Edition does not work yet.

At last year's Tokyo Game Show, SNK Playmore unveiled the next entry in the The King of Fighters franchise, The King of Fighters XIV, as a PlayStation 4 exclusive. Featuring fresh 3D visuals and boasting an impressive 50-fighter roster, fans won't have to wait too much longer to get their hands on a copy. The King of Fighters XIV launches on August 23rd in North America and two days later on August 25th for Japan.

In addition to this release date, two brand new fighters were announced. Head inside for more information!
