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.

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.

PlayStation VR2’s best launch game isn’t the one you we’re expecting

With the PlayStation VR2 out now, all eyes are on Horizon Call of the Mountain. The action-adventure title is Sony’s first big exclusive for the platform, acting as its tentpole launch title. While it’s a must-buy for anyone picking up the device on day one, it's more successful as a strong technical showcase for the headset rather than as a fun game that stands on its own. If you’re looking for the latter, you’ll want to check out PSVR2’s real hidden weapon: Fantavision 202X.

Get these 6 PlayStation VR2 launch games to showcase its features
A side view of the PlayStation VR2, which sits on a wood table.

If you're planning on buying a PlayStation VR2 at launch, be prepared for an intimidating process as you decide which games to pick up first. Early adopters will have a lot of options to choose from, as Sony's latest headset will support over 40 games at launch. The bulk of those, though, are ports of preexisting VR games from the past few years. That makes it a little tricky to figure out which games actually showcase what the PSVR2 is capable of and which will feel like a dated experience that doesn't benefit from new tech.

To help guide you, we've spent time playing through a wide variety of launch titles, from classics like Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge all the way to Horizon Call of the Mountain. While there are plenty of games that we've enjoyed, including charmers like What the Bat? and Jurassic World Aftermath Collection, six games in particular act as great showcases for various PSVR2 features. Whether you're looking to test its power, Sense controllers, or audio options, you'll want to put these six games in your digital shopping cart.

PlayStation Plus just set a new first-party precedent with Horizon Forbidden West
Horizon: Forbidden West

Sony revealed the games coming to PlayStation Plus Premium and PlayStation Plus Extra this month on February 21, and it's the best month that the service has had since it launched in the summer of 2022. Not only are some great PS1 classics like The Legend of Dragoon and Wild Arms 2 coming to the service, but Horizon Forbbiden West is getting added as well.
Horizon Forbidden West coming to the service one year after launch is a big deal because Sony has been resistant to putting recent first-party PS5 games on its subscription service. While it's still not adding first-party titles on day one like Xbox Game Pass does, this is possibly our first indication of how Sony will handle adding its own games to the subscription. It's not the only PS4 and PS5 title coming to the service this month either, as the following strong lineup of games was also confirmed to be coming on February 21.

The Quarry (PS4, PS5)
Resident Evil VII Biohazard (PS4)
Outriders (PS4, PS5)
Scarlet Nexus (PS4, PS5)
Borderlands 3 (PS4, PS5) 
Tekken 7 (PS4, PS5)
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown (PS4)
Earth Defense Force 5 (PS4)
