Just like Nintendo Directs or Inside Xbox, the PlayStation State of Play videos are one of the ways Sony updates fans with new game reveals, details, and more, so they’re essential viewing for anyone who wants to keep up with what’s coming next for PlayStation.

They’re easy to miss if you’re not paying attention though - so here’s when the next State of Play takes place, what it’s about, and how to watch along live.

When is the next State of Play?

The next State of Play takes place tomorrow, Wednesday 27 May, at the following times:

  • 1pm PT
  • 4pm ET
  • 9pm BST (UK time)
  • 10pm CET

This video will be all about post-apocalyptic survival sequel The Last of Us Part II.

How to watch State of Play

We're hosting the YouTube stream right at the top of this page, but otherwise you can watch on the PlayStation YouTube and Twitch channels.

What to expect from the next State of Play

As we’ve already said, the upcoming episode will be an extended look at The Last of Us Part II.

With the game due out in June, this will likely be one of our last big looks at what to expect, and the PlayStation blog says we’ll get “extensive look at the gameplay, threats, and world of the game,” from director Neil Druckmann, ending with "a never-before-seen extended gameplay sequence."

Expect the full video to last around 25 minutes, and lower your expectations for new console news, as Sony added this: “there won’t be any PS5 news or updates in this episode.”
