November 14, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

Debuted over the weekend, The King is a new live-action PlayStation trailer from Sony. Set to a rendition of Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This, the ad features a king riding away from his kingdom and fantasizing about different video games, including Horizon Zero Dawn, Spider-Man PS4and God of War.

You can see the 60-second version of the ad above, with the full two-minute version available on PlayStation’s Facebook page.

Sony also unveiled the holiday 2016 edition of their ‘The Best Place to Play’ ad series, which includes Spider-Man PS4, Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War, and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. It’s the Canadian version of the trailer, so it says the PS4 starts at $379.99 (it starts at $299.99 in the US):

Although the ad only says God of War and Spider-Man PS4 are “in development for the PS4 system,” PlayStation Network SVP Eric Lempel suggested they’ll be out fairly soon:

Gamers are at the heart of everything we do, and our new campaign focuses on one of the things we love most: adventure. Starting with the original PlayStation more than 20 years ago, we’ve always strived to bring innovative ideas and exciting new adventures to our fans.

In the near future, we’ll journey with you through the lush, post-apocalyptic world of Horizon: Zero Dawn, seek solitude in the unfamiliar lands of Norse mythology in God of War, and swing through the streets of Manhattan with Spider-Man.

Are you surprised to see The Last Guardian and Gravity Rush 2 not featured in either trailer?
