What are the best PS4 games at E3 2019? We’ve been paying close attention to every new PlayStation 4 title debuting in Los Angeles this week, and we’ve compiled a definitive list of our favourites. Some of these titles you’ll have seen before, others were announced during one of the many press conferences surrounding the Electronics Entertainment Expo’s showfloor. So, which titles have got us in a frenzy?
While we did expect to see more of Cyberpunk 2077 on Xbox's E3 2019 stage, the cinematic trailer that we ended up with was still pretty damn cool. Gratuitous swearing mixed with dire consequences is the formula for this one, but the real highlight was seeing Keanu Reeves pop up at the end of it. The bottom line is that we've seen enough of Cyberpunk 2077 to know that it looks incredibly promising, and obviously, at this point, we'd never bet against the outstanding talent at CD Projekt Red. "Wake the **** up, samurai" is a line that we'll be repeating for months to come.

DOOM Eternal was the centrepiece of Bethesda's E3 press conference, so it's a good job that the devil slayer brought the ass kicking in droves during his hour of need. Gameplay detailed an even bigger focus on taking the fight to the enemy, with certain pick-ups tied to the different ways that foes meet their end and a grappling hook that turns destruction into creativity. The experience looks set to be every bit as good as its 2016 predecessor, so let the ripping and tearing commence.
You might be getting tired of the battle royale genre, but what about a 100-player party game where you face random rounds of mini games, obstacle courses, and physics based mayhem? That's Fall Guys, and it looks like a genuine delight. You play as the titular candy-coloured creatures, and each round will eliminate a number of contestants until only a few remain for the last mad dash towards a giant crown. It looks utterly mad in the best possible way.
We expected a lot from Final Fantasy VII Remake at E3 2019, and boy did Square Enix deliver. Arguably the best showing at any press conference, the Japanese publisher was not shy about presenting gameplay, giving us a full 20-minute rundown on how the combat works, complete with a full boss fight. It looks stunning, the character designs are spot on, and the gameplay itself looks better than we could have imagined. It's been a long, long wait, but somehow, against all odds, it's looking like Square Enix might just deliver on its promise.
We're big fans of Assassin's Creed Odyssey here at Push Square, and so when we heard that Gods & Monsters is being developed by the same core team, we couldn't help but feel some hype. This is clearly an open world aimed at a wider audience, as evidenced by the bright colours and cartoony visuals, but we got serious Breath of the Wild vibes from the reveal trailer, and given the studio's knack for crafting lush, vast locations, we simply can't wait to see more. A defined 2020 launch date should also help us manage our expectations as we roll on towards release.
