What will Sony announce at E3 2018?

It’s at this point that we usually speculate what Sony will showcase during E3 2018, but, in a turn of events, Sony has outlined what to expect in a PlayStation blog post.

According to the post, the conference will be focused at showcasing an “exclusive look” at Spider-Man ahead of release later this year, along with The Last of Us Part II, Ghosts of Tshushima and the hotly anticipated Death Stranding.

That’s not all though; Sony has also confirmed that the conference will feature a range of “stellar announcements” from third-party publishers and developers about games coming to PS4, PS4 Pro and Sony’s VR platform, PlayStation VR.
