On this episode of IGN’s weekly PlayStation show, Podcast Beyond!, host Jonathon Dornbush is joined by Mark Medina and Jada Griffin to talk about PlayStation… and Severance. But mostly PlayStation, we promise, Mark’s just really happy Severance got renewed.
But after that, we dig into the biggest news of the week, including confirmation that a new Tomb Raider game is confirmed, as well as our hopes and expectations for a new Lara Croft adventure from Crystal Dynamics. We dig into what we did and didn’t like about the reboot trilogy, what we hope a new game would carry forward, and if it’s even something we want set in that same universe or a new timeline entirely.
The State of PlayStation Studios
Then, we discuss a bit about E3 2022 not happening, what we expect from PlayStation’s event plans in the coming months, and more about how busy this summer is likely going to be for gaming events. We also discuss Jim Ryan’s recent comments about Sony’s plans for more acquisitions, and the discussions PlayStation is having with other major and indie devs and publishes to support the upcoming PlayStation Plus library.Then, we dig into what we’re playing, including Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, LEGO Star Wars, Maquette, Fortnite’s Zero Build mode, and more.
