According to the announcement, Sony is set to give fans an extended look at the MediEvil sequel. Originally released in 1998 on the PSX, MediEvil spawned a sequel in 2000 and a PlayStation Portable remake in 2005. The action-adventure hack-and-slash is getting a new entry as players will be able to control Sir Daniel Fortesque once again.

Sid Shuman, director of social media, also said in the PlayStation blog post that there will be a first look at a new title. Plus, other updates and announcements for PS4 games are set to be made.
