Yet, stealing the spotlight were the major announcements from gaming maestros Hideo Kojima and Ken Levine. Here are the top five reveals from this State of Play:

**1. “Stellar Blade”**
The spotlight shone on “Stellar Blade,” ShiftUp’s narrative set in a post-apocalyptic Earth facing the NA:tive, a mysterious Demogorgon-like enemy.

In the Silent Hill universe, two major announcements were made. First, the unveiling of the free-to-play title “Silent Hill: The Short Message,” available on the same day for PlayStation 5. The game introduces a young woman navigating an unfamiliar, hostile environment, haunted by messages from a friend.

**3. “Judas”**
Ken Levine, the visionary behind BioShock, teased his latest creation, “Judas,” through a captivating story trailer.

The release date remains undisclosed.

**4. “Rise of the Ronin”**
A gameplay overview of “Rise of the Ronin,” exclusively launching on PS5 on March 22, showcased impressive traversal mechanics and dynamic combat. Japanese long swords intersect with foreign guns, and inventive tools like the Fire Pipe add to the excitement.
