  16. There was a large demo on the game Dreams which is still in alpha. The game is basically a sandbox world where you enter into a dream and create an environment using the materials presented to you. Here is the trailer.
  17. There was a huge VR (virtual reality) section of the presentation. There were two games that were announced as stand alone titles and they are RIGS Mechanized Combat League and Until Dawn Rush of Blood. There was another VR experience shared with the audience at the expo and that was a VR simulation of the climax of the movie “The Walk”. In this VR experience you get to walk across a tightrope on top of two large buildings the same way that the protagonist does in the movie “The Walk”. You can find the trailers here.
  18. Tekken 7 is also coming to PSVR (PlayStation Virtual Reality).
  19. WiLD game is announced and trailer is shown. Here is the trailer.
  20.  Lastly the final announcement was concerned with the game Detroit Become Human Here is the trailer.

We, here at JumpToGamer were under the impression that the PlayStation Plus League would be announced today but that did not occur. It was a surprising turn of events considering the other spoiler piece of information (the announcement of Driveclub Bikes) was correctly predicted.
