Podcast Beyond - IGN's PlayStation Show

On this week's episode of Podcast Beyond!, host Jonathon Dornbush is joined by Lucy O'Brien and Mark Medina to react to the Horizon Forbidden West State of Play presentation, featuring the first PS5 gameplay. 

The trio digs into the traversal additions, like Aloy's new glider, the changes to combat against both human and robotic enemies, the design of this San Francisco location, and so much more.

This episode was filmed as part of a livestream right after the State of Play, so apologies for any sections that feel a little strange in audio-only form. We'll be back to our usual show next week!

On this week's episode of Podcast Beyond!, IGN's weekly PlayStation show, host Jonathon Dornbush is joined by Brian Altano and Max Scoville to dive into the latest PS4 and PS5 news.

The cast discusses GTA 5's PS5 release date confirmation and our hopes for what the third version of GTA 5 on consoles can offer for both newcomers and returning players. Along with that, we discuss the enduring success of GTA Online, and what we hope to see of Rockstar's emphasis on GTA 3's 20th anniversary later this year.

We also discuss the DualSense's two new colors, set to come out on June 11, including what we think of them, what we hope Sony's further approach to offering new controller colors will be, and why we really just want to have an official way to get PS5 faceplates customized.

Plus, we discuss The Last of Us Part 2 PS5 performance patch, get in some Sackboy-meets-Returnal breaking news, and touch a bit more (spoiler free) on Resident Evil Village.
