Wolverine is the next Marvel hero to get the video game treatment

During the PlayStation Showcase, Insomniac Games showed off a teaser trailer for Wolverine, a new game that will star the fan-favorite mutant from the X-Men series. The teaser trailer did not reveal much information about the game besides showing off Wolverine’s adamantium claws.

Marvel's Wolverine - PlayStation Showcase 2021 Trailer | PS5

Wolverine is being developed by Insomniac Games, a game company that is quite familiar with Marvel IP. Insomniac Games is the company behind the critically acclaimed Spider-Man for the PlayStation consoles, as well as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The studio had a particularly big role in Sony’s stream, as it also debuted a trailer for Spider-Man 2.

Wolverine has been in various games over the years such as Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Marvel’s Ultimate Alliance 3, and even in the upcoming Marvel’s Midnight Suns. However, this will be the first time in 12 years that Wolverine is starring in his own game. Wolverine: Origins was released in 2009 for PlayStation 2, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360, PC, PlayStation Portable, and Nintendo DS. Marvel’s Wolverine will be exclusive to PlayStation as its being developed by Insomniac, one of Sony’s most notable first-party studios. It’s unknown if it will come to PS4 as well as PS5, considering how far off the project likely is from completion.

We still do not know any details about the story or the gameplay of Wolverine, but with Insomniac Games at the helm, we can assume that it will be of similar quality to the Spider-Man games that it has developed over the years. There is currently no release date for the game.

If you’re not using PlayStation Stars, you’re missing out
Three phone screens with the PlayStation Stars app.

I wouldn't blame you if you forgot PlayStation Stars existed. In fact, I would guess the majority of people out there have no idea what that even is, but PlayStation's reward program deserves more attention than it's getting.

Launched in the summer of 2022, PlayStation Stars is a program meant to reward players for engaging with the PlayStation ecosystem. You can take on challenges to earn digital collectibles and, more importantly, coins that can be redeemed for games, store credit, and some premium in-game currencies.

3 underrated PS Plus games you should play this weekend (May 3-5)
The main character of Tales of Kenzera: Zau stands with two elemental items.

PlayStation Plus Premium and Extra have been around for almost two years, and during that time the subscription service has established itself as an ample competitor to Xbox Game Pass. That means there is a wealth of great games for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 owners to check out if they're looking for something to play this weekend. I think PS Plus subscribers should be looking toward some of the more underrated games in the subscription service this weekend too.

I have three particular picks in mind. The first is an enjoyable Metroidvania that came to PS Plus' game catalog when it launched just a couple of weeks ago and deserves a lot more attention than it's getting. After that, there's an action-platformer that pays homage to series like Ninja Gaiden that you should check out before it leaves the catalog. Finally, there's a PS2-era Star Wars game that fills the niche a recently canceled game would have.

All upcoming PS5 games: 2024 and beyond
Shadow of erdtree

The PlayStation 5 has been out for some time now, and its reception has been mostly positive. It includes lots of quality-of-life improvements over its predecessor, the PlayStation 4, such as faster load times, a solid-state drive (SSD) instead of a regular hard disk drive (HDD), and an improved controller in the form of the new DualSense. However, a console is only as good as the games available on it, and thankfully, the PS5 has you covered on that front as well.

While the machine already has a worthy library of great PS5 games, there are even more to look forward to, with some releasing as soon as this month, while others are still years away. In the video game world, it's not uncommon to be aware of games that are still several years out from release. It's also normal for a new game to be revealed and launched within just a couple of months. In this comprehensive list, we'll go through the major PS5 releases scheduled for 2023 and speculate on future games.
