Gamescom is a little over a week away and hype is reaching a fevered pitch when it comes to potential new game announcements from either Sony for PlayStation 4 or Microsoft for Xbox One. A potential first look at a new PS4 game arrived this evening in the form of a Sony Gamescom teaser trailer that will boost hype even more. Either that or Sony is showing their appreciation for stimulating yet unrelated imagery.
The short Sony Gamescom trailer is set in a chilly world with ice and beautifully rendered snowflakes drifting in the breeze. The serene portrait quickly evaporates as blood begins to soak through a snowflake and ultimately engulfs it in a bright red hue.
Is the Sony Gamescom teaser trailer for a new IP? A sequel like a new God of War? Or part of a game we already know about like Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Unity? It’s too early to tell, but Sony is hoping you’ll keep guessing right up until their Gamescom press event on Tuesday, August 12 at 1pm EST.
The main purpose of the Sony Gamescom teaser trailer release is to promote the Twitter hashtag #PlaystationGC. You can bet that hashtag will be trending when Sony makes whatever announcements they have felt fit to hold back from E3 in June for Gamescom in Germany.
