PlayStation Experience 2016 panels and playable games lineup announced


PlayStation Experience 2016: Panel Lineup, 100+ Playable Games

Phew! Team PlayStation is hard at work putting the finishing touches on PlayStation Experience 2016. I have a feeling that it’s going to be truly special.

With thousands of you flying in from all over the country — even the world! — it’s time to provide a few more details on what awaits this December 3 and 4 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA. Don’t worry if you don’t have your tickets yet, we still have some available right here. But hurry, there’s no telling how long they’ll last!

The action will kick off on Saturday at 10:00am sharp with our big PlayStation Showcase, but take note: as always, seating space will be limited! If you want to sit in on PlayStation Showcase, plan to arrive bright and early — doors will open at 8:00am, but the line will likely be well underway by that point.

Then come the panels. We’re locked and loaded for six developer panels this year, and in my humble opinion it’s our strongest lineup by a country mile. I hate to go all cloak-and-dagger, but we can only reveal three of the panels at this time. Trust me: the other three will be worth the wait!

2:00pm: Accessibility: Making Games for All Gamers
Accessibility features help empower all gamers—not just those with disabilities—and we want to set an industry standard of inclusion. We’re bringing together some of the top minds from the accessibility community, PlayStation and Naughty Dog to discuss best practices for game developers and to share powerful stories about the broader impact of accessibility features in games.

And now for the games! We’re currently looking at well over 100 playable games at PlayStation Experience this year (though for the discerning eye, you’ll only see 96 on this list). Again, these are only the games we’re allowed to talk about for now. Plenty more to be revealed in Anaheim!

And of course, we’re honored to be hosting two great gaming competitions on site.

Capcom Cup 2016 will return to PlayStation Experience on December 3, where the Top 8 finalists will compete for their share in more than $350,000 and to be crowned the Street Fighter V World Champion.

And Call of Duty World League will will take place at PlayStation Experience on December 3 and 4. As part of the eight-team invitational, Splyce, Team Elevate, Rise Nation, Faze Clan, Luminosity Gaming, Orbit, Renegades, and Evil Geniuses are scheduled to compete during the first official LAN broadcast of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
