A Sony State of Play broadcast focusing on Arkane's upcoming Deathloop and various independent games has been scheduled for Thursday.

The show will include a nine-minute dive into Deathloop that Sony says will "see Colt use his abilities to stealthily skulk across rooftops... or go in guns blazing to create a whole lot of mayhem." It sounds like the game's flexibility will be a main point of the broadcast.

Beyond the Deathloop showcase, Sony says it will have updates on "some exciting indie and third-party titles," over the course of the 30-minute broadcast. Details about which games and developers will be involved remain under wraps.

The company has also emphasized that the State of Play won't have any new information about the next God of War, Horizon Forbidden West, or PlayStation VR.

"Stay tuned throughout the summer though," reads the PlayStation Blog post on the State of Play, "as we'll have more updates soon."

The State of Play broadcast begins at 5 p.m. ET on the PlayStation Twitch and YouTube channels.
