When it comes to events Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) has been on a cull of late. There was no PlayStation Experience in December 2018, and PlayStation won’t be at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2019 for the first time. Instead, SIE has opted for a new State of Play broadcast to make announcements during the course of the year. That’s not to say everything has changed as the Road to Greatness tour will be returning.
The Road to Greatness tour across the US isn’t a guaranteed event – it didn’t take place in 2017 for example – but when it does arrive PlayStation fans are then able to play some of the very latest PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR videogames available.
All housed inside a giant truck (mostly), the tour visits festivals and conventions across the country with the first being Salt Lake City Comic Con this weekend. This year will feature more gaming stations and upgrades, with each one housing a PlayStation 4 Pro. There will be plenty of titles on offer, confirmed so far are Days Gone, MLB The Show 19, Fortnite, NBA 2K19, Madden NFL 19, Spelunky 2, Tetris Effect and Squanch Games’ Trover Saves the Universe – coming to PlayStation VR on 31st May 2019.
