E3 2016: The Last Guardian Finally Gets A Release Date For PS4

Sony has announced The Last Guardian will launch on October 25, 2016. The announcement was made during its E3 2016 press conference, where a new gameplay trailer was also shown. 

The game, which has been in development since 2007, tells the story of a boy who has been imprisoned in some mysterious ruins and must find his way out with the help of a giant dog-like griffin named Trico. The game will combine platform and action segments with puzzles that will require Trico’s help to solve, though the beast will not always respond to the player’s commands. You can watch new gameplay trailer below.


The trailer showed off some shots we’ve previously seen before, but also introduced a new character in the form of a second creature. Some puzzles and enemy combatants also show up as Trico, the giant bird protecting the player, is involved in most of the action. The character then asks, “What’s wrong? Are your wings broken?” to his hybrid creature before the fall release date is shown to a roar from the E3 crowd at the Shrine Auditorium while a full orchestra played out the proceedings.

Not much is known about how the game will actually play besides a brief section showed to the public at last year’s E3, which itself was an earlier portion of the game that was previously shown. It will be interesting to see how much gameplay the young boy is tasked with, as everything we have seen shows him being more of a liability than a properly playable character since he’. only used simple platforming to complete objectives as far as the demos have shown.

I'm not particularly hyped on this game, but I'm glad that it finally has a release date, and I'm pretty sure that fans of The Last Guardian are excited to play this game on October. Just a few more months to go.

This is one of those games that i'll buy more to support the developers than for the game itself. I don't like platformers nor puzzle games so i may not finish the game, but i surely want to see their ambitions firsthand. I love that they held strong under great pressure to take the time to create what looks like a great piece of art rather than some rushed new IP just to make some money.
