Watch 5 of the Best Trailers from Sony's Paris Games Week Kickoff
Paris Games Week, the annual French video game convention, kicked off on Monday with a bang as Sony unveiled a number of new trailers for hotly anticipated PS4 titles.
Sony, which has scored a series of hits this year with exclusive titles such as Horizon Zero Dawn and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, looks to continue the trend into 2018 with a solid roster of games.
Here's a look at some of the best trailers from Sony's Paris Games Week showcase.
The Last of Us
Fans of the 2013 PS3 exclusive will undoubtedly recognize the moody brutality in the long-awaited sequel's trailer, but no sign of the first game's protagonists, Joel and Ellie, are seen in the brief five-minute snippet. Still, the action and horror are visceral as an unknown woman struggles against a noose and a trio of attackers while arrows and hammers fly through the rain.
God of War
Kratos, the Grecian demigod at the center of one of Playstation's most successful franchises, returns in the upcoming installment in the God of War series. Done slicing and dicing his way through the pantheon of Greek deities, Kratos now turns his sights on Norse mythology, and this time he's not alone, as his son Atreus joins his quest.

Spidey had a big summer with Spider-Man: Homecoming grossing a massive haul at the box office. Now, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man looks to buck the trend of so many other bad superhero games in one of 2018's most anticipated titles that looks to capture the feel, humor, charm and, most importantly, web-slinging nature of the titular character. Plus, there's even an appearance by Miles Morales, who comic book fans know as another Spider-Man.
Shadow of the Colossus
The 2005 original is one of the most beloved indie games of all time, so the announcement of a remake was met with loud enthusiasm from the gaming community. The game, "rebuilt from the ground up," looks to be more than just a remaster of the PS2 original and promises the same stunning setting, emotional story and towering colossi that made the first game such a hit.
Detroit: Become Human
Another emotionally charged, intense trailer, this look at Detroit: Become Human shows the game is a neo-noir thriller that shows off incredible visuals and facial animations in a Blade Runner-esque setting. It stars Minka Kelly.
