Sony announced Monday that its upcoming PlayStation 5 event — which will show off new games for the console — has been rescheduled for Thursday, June 11.

  • The event will begin at 4 p.m. ET (2 p.m. MT).
  • Sony’s event was originally canceled as protests erupted throughout the country over the death of George Floyd.

What the event will show

  • Sonywill show off some new games for the upcoming PlayStation 5 video game console. The event will likely run for about an hour, Sony said in a new blog post.
  • The event will be broadcasted online. It will be shown at 1080p and 30 frames per second, according toSony. This matters because games won’t appear exactly as they will when the PlayStation 5 launches.
  • “The games you’ll see on Thursday will look even better when you play them on PS5 with a 4K TV, as you’d expect,” according to Sony. “It’s also best if you watch while wearing headphones, if you can — there’s some cool audio work in the show, and it might be harder to appreciate if it’s pumped through your phone or laptop speakers.”
