The PS5 is only a couple of weeks away from launch if you are in one of the countries getting it on the 12th of November. And only three weeks away if you are in the UK and Europe.

The next-generation of gaming is nearly upon us and it will be wondrous.

Because the PS5 is almost here, Sony has revealed its global launch ad for its next-generation console. Check the PS5 ad spot out below.

 

Eric Lempel, Senior VP of PlayStation Worldwide Marketing at Sony Interactive Entertainment had this to say about the ad:

For the launch, our goal has always been to create a spot that feels epic and iconic; a spot that truly celebrates our desire to push the boundaries of what is possible and evokes the excitement that you will have through the unique experiences made possible with PlayStation 5.

The theme of the spot is centred around the idea of exploration. There is a desire in all of us to explore and discover new possibilities, whether it’s in gaming, or in our everyday lives. We all want to go to places we’ve never been, see what’s never been seen. We tell the story by paying homage to explorers of the past who stood on the threshold of the unknown and pushed past their limits to achieve the extraordinary.

In case you are not familiar with the voice narrating the PS5 ad, it’s Travis Scott, PlayStation’s new strategic creative partner. Yea, I’d never heard of him either until the PS5 video which replicates the old Maxell ad. Needless to say, he’s pretty famous, at least in the USA anyway.
