E3 2018: all the news from Sony's bizarre Playstation press conference – as it happened

Join video games editor Keza MacDonald and correspondent Keith Stuart for another day of video game news, including the latest from Sony and Ubisoft at E3.

For its 2018 E3 press conference, Sony made the decision to concentrate on longer, more in-depth trailers of previously announced titles rather than bludgeoning our senses with reams of announcements.

Nevertheless, a visceral sequence from Last of Us 2 gave us a glimpse into Ellie’s new life – and a new relationship – as she dances with and kisses another woman at a church dance. It’s a touching, warm and beautifully visualised scene, but it gives way to a gut-wrenchingly violent scene with Ellie sneaking through an overgrown multi-storey car park, stabbing various enemies.
