Forget all of those soppy, heartfelt commercials now appearing on our TV screens in the run-up to Christmas. Sony has just released its own effort and it’s a live-action romp showcasing upcoming exclusive titles for the PS4.
Titled “The King,” the commercial features high production values and sees some fictional monarch go on a video game-inspired journey, meeting characters like Kratos from God of War and Aloy from Horizon: Zero Dawn. The real star of the clip, though, is Spider-Man, who makes an appearance towards the end. Spider-Man isn’t a Sony-owned character, but there is an upcoming PS4 exclusive Spider-Man game in the works.
There’s also references to Destiny and Street Fighter 5, as well as a few nods to a handful of non-exclusive PS4 games like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Mass Effect: Andromeda, and the Doom reboot. Check it out above.
