PS5 and PS4 owners are counting down to the start of the PlayStation Showcase event.

The next PlayStation Showcase will take place on September 9 at 9pm BST UK time.

The event will run for around 40 minutes, and will be broadcast live on the PlayStation YouTube channel.

Of course, Express Online will be streaming the entire thing, so hit play on the YouTube embed below to watch the Showcase live. (Video will be added closer to 9pm).

The news was announced on the PlayStation Blog, where Sony confirmed that the Showcase will feature a look at first and third-party games.

“You’ve been awfully patient, and we thank you for that. And now we’re looking forward to showing you what we’ve been working on,” Sony explains.

“Tune in next Thursday, September 9 at 1:00pm Pacific Time / 9:00pm BST / 10:00pm CEST for a look into the future of PS5.

“The Showcase will weigh in at around 40 minutes and include updates from PlayStation Studios and some of the industry’s most imaginative developers, for games releasing this holiday and beyond.

“And stick around after the presentation to get more updates from some of the studio teams featured in the Showcase.”

Unfortunately, however, Sony won’t be revealing any new information about the next-gen PlayStation VR device.

“One thing to note: PlayStation’s next generation of VR won’t make an appearance this time. But there will still be plenty of great PS5 games from developers large and small.”

While there haven’t been any concrete leaks ahead of the event, a couple of industry insiders have shed some light on what to expect.

XboxEra Podcast co-host @Shpeshal_Nick claims that God of War Ragnarok will make an appearance at the event, as well as a new inFamous game.

“Ok. Please take this one with a grain of salt because it’s one of the things I couldn’t get confirmed. But because I like the series I’m hoping it’s true. But there’s a chance we could see Infamous make a return at Sony’s showcase. Fingers crossed,” he tweeted.

Needless to say, PS5 fans have been speculating about what else will be shown at the event.

This includes the heavily rumoured Silent Hill reboot, which trended on Twitter when the event was announced.

Previous reports suggest Silent Hill will be published by Sony, which means it’s almost certain to be a PS5 exclusive.

Gran Turismo 7 is also tipped to appear, alongside Death Stranding Director’s Cut, which launches soon.
