Moss 2! Deathloop! Jett! Death Stranding!

PlayStation's July State of Play broadcast included new details on Death Stranding's PS5 Director's Cut, a reveal for Moss: Book 2, a delay for Sifu and a lot of Deathloop.

The 30-minute show kicked off with Moss: Book 2, a second chapter of cute virtual reality mouse adventuring coming to PlayStation VR.

We have a good look at the game and a chat with developer Polyarc on what to expect (more puzzles! more emotions!) and what not (no multiplayer!) in our Moss: Book 2 reveal story.

Next was a look at Tribes of Midgard, and its post-launch bits and pieces. Season one, The Wolf Saga, adds a new rune system, quests and season-exclusive items.
