The State of PlayStation is strong as a new video direct is incoming along with EA Access.

Lots of news has been dropping in the land of PlayStation this week, offering tantalizing information from Sony and EA that should get fans excited.

For starters, the second State of Play live stream presentation is coming this week, on Thursday, May 9, at 3:00 p.m. PT or 6:00 p.m. ET.

The Nintendo-inspired video direct format offers gaming news nuggets teasing what’s in store next for Sony’s platform. In PlayStation’s official announcement they detailed that we can expect: an extended look at the MediEvil remake, and the first look at a new title.

As a fan of the original MediEvil, I am thrilled to see how development is progressing. What we’ve seen so far looks fast and fluid with significant graphical improvements, and an extended preview is just what I need to further fuel my excitement for the return of Sir Daniel Fortesque.

The new title reveal sounds exciting, but it appears it won’t be anything related to the upcoming PlayStation 5. Sony has confirmed the next-gen console won’t be a topic of discussion.

There will be some exciting first looks, but expectations should be tempered as the show will be quick running approximately 10 minutes in length.

State of Play will stream live on TwitchTwitterYouTube, and Facebook.

The second exciting announcement is EA Access is coming to PS4 this July. The service gives you access to a vault of rotating EA games for a monthly fee. I’ve used the service on my Xbox One and PlayStation owners are in for a treat. EA Access offers many new and classic titles to bolster your gaming library. On Xbox One, you get access to games like Titanfall 2, Need For Speed Rivals, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare, and Battlefield 4. I can’t wait to see what the PS4 lineup will be! Let’s hope for more information during the State of Play broadcast later this week.
