The Last of Us Part II Wraps Shooting

Neil Druckmann announces wrap up shooting for upcoming Naughty Dog title The Last of Us Part II on Twitter.

Originally announced back in 2016 at PlayStation Experience, action-adventure game The Last of Us Part II remains one of the most anticipated upcoming titles from developer Naughty Dog and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment.

We didn't get an official release date yet because the game is still under development but recently, game director Neil Druckmann has announced on social media that motion capture has wrapped up, completing major part of the process.

We know that lead characters Joel and Ellie are returning for this impending PlayStation 4-exclusive that is set five years after The Last of Us but this time the latter will be going through a cycle of violence for personal reasons.

In terms of story, there was a teaser and a trailer that only explores fraction of its entire plot without possibly revealing any major twist. A footage featuring gameplay was released during E3 2018 and it was as brutal as it could get.

The Last of Us remains a saga of Joel and Ellie going through a lot of blood, sweat and tears that is very close to Neil. Of course, Baker and Johnson too are similarly attached to this sequel project as well that is heading towards completion.

Druckmann has posted an image of actor Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker on Twitter, pointing to an emotional wrap-up.

Although wrapping up motion capture scenes shooting are major part of development but Naughty Dog still has much work to do for making this much awaited PS4 game a reality, even though it probably is not coming out in 2019.

While waiting for a release date to be announced, we can expect The Last of Us Part II to also arrive on PlayStation 5 following recent revealing of its first details. Besides, PS5 console is going to be backwards compatible with PS4 games anyway.

Halo TV Series Casts Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief

Upcoming Halo TV series on Showtime has cast American Gods starrer Pablo Schreiber to play Master Chief.

Right after announcing upcoming militaristic sci-fi first-person shooter Halo Infinite back at E3 2018 press conference last year, a brand-new TV Series based on long-running Halo video game franchise was confirmed for Showtime.

According to a recent announcement from the TV network, Canadian-American actor Pablo Schreiber (American Gods, Orange Is the New Black) has been cast in its lead role as renowned series protagonist Master Chief John-117.

Schreiber has received nomination for Primetime Emmy for his guest role at comedy-drama series Orange Is the New Black in 2015 and then been nominated for Tony Award on the same year for theatrical performance of Awake and Sing!

He stands an impressive 6.5" tall, which is a pretty rare standard for Hollywood and yet he will be five inches shorter than actual height of John-117 without his Spartan armor but Schreiber still has a physical frame to do proper justice to the character.

Also joining him in cast is Yerin Ha in a new and original character of 16 year-old Quan Ah, solely created for the show. She will cross paths with Master Chief at a time of 26th-century epic conflict of humans and alien race of Covenant.

In association with developer studio 343 Industries and Amblin Television of filmmaker Steven Spielberg, Showtime is looking forward to produce a 9-episode first Season of Halo TV Series with executive producer Kyle Killen (Awake, Lone Star) on board.

Assassin's Creed Unity Free on Uplay Now

To stand in solidarity for the fire ravaged iconic Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris, Ubisoft is giving away Assassins Creed Unity for free on Uplay.

Even if you don't keep up much with international news, you may have heard about the devastating fire at iconic Notre-Dame cathedral of Paris on this Monday, April 15 that has moved everyone around the world in shock.

To stand in solidarity with everyone affected by it, French video game developer/publisher Ubisoft has announced to donate €500,000 for its restoration work and offering free copies of Assassin's Creed Unity on PC via Uplay, available until April 25.

Set during French Revolution era of a fictional Paris, AC Unity focuses efforts of protagonist Arno Victor Dorian in exposing forces behind wheels of Revolution and its gameplay follows a stealth based combat system in an open-world.

Entire set pieces of this installment are from a time when cathedral of Notre-Dame was vandalized and players are to enter the central church chasing Templar Sivert at one point, which remains a very notable part of the game.

RELATED: Assassin's Creed III Remastered Release Date

While designing the in-game version of this renowned monumental piece, senior level artist Caroline Miousse said in a 2014 interview that they went through a lot of blueprints and Assassin's Creed historian Maxime Durand helped of course.

Although she never visited it before working on the project back then, she looked at a lot of references and talked to people to know how it's like to be there. However, the one you will see in AC Unity is not the one from French Revolution.

Much like Eiffel tower, Notre-Dame de Paris is an iconic part of the city skyline that is quite hard to miss because of a massive spire aside from its two towers and has gone through an extraordinary recreation process during development of Unity.

Rebuilt after 18th century with wood, it suffered the most during recent fire and Miousse actually changed it a bit to make it look cool. Whenever players get to climb on it, they have a chance to see Paris from very top and it is an amazing view.

Entire world has already pledged over $900 million collectively for reconstruction of the 800 years old historic Cathedral with more coming in every day and French government has planned on rebuilding it within next few years.

Sony Reveals PlayStation 5 Console Plans

Mark Cerny of Sony outlines what hardware features to expect from next-gen PlayStation console.

Rumors are going around among gaming communities for some time that Sony Interactive Entertainment has been working on next-generation PlayStation console for some time and people are already calling it PlayStation 5 despite any official confirmation.

Apparently, they were working on it for past four years now and most recently, lead system architect Mark Cerny spilled some beans about some planned outlines for the hardware in an exclusive interview with monthly magazine Wired.

Sony plans for their next video game console to be powered by CPU based third-generation AMD Ryzen line of processor and GPU based on Radeon Navi series, a custom variant to support ray tracing and up to 8K resolutions.

Ray tracing allows for simulating complex 3D environments and is common in Hollywood for visual effects. Some companies are trying to employ it for their high-end processors like Nvidia RTX line but no console was able to handle it so far.

Although the method is mostly used for graphical aesthetics of rendering objects more accurately to maintain realism, it can dramatically change audio experience as well, such as enemies being able to hear players' footsteps and all.

Next-gen PlayStation consoles will be using a solid-state drive for utilizing its speedy bandwidth to significantly decrease loading time of games and delivering faster online multiplayer experience than ever before.

RELATED: PlayStation State of Play, March 2019

Also, it will be backwards compatible for PS4 games and comes with PlayStation VR support but Cerny did not drop further details on their future plans for VR yet. Nor did he talk about any services or other features other than hardware specs.

Generally, Sony would have a keynote presentation at E3 in June but since they are skipping the annual game show for this year, our best guess is that any brand-new State of Play episode of their broadcast will most likely do that.

In an absolute knocking the ball out of the park move, developer/publisher Capcom has seen a smashing success with their recent release of Resident Evil 2 Remake that took newcomers and veterans back to roots of survival horror.

While playing as either Claire Redfield or Leon Kennedy in RE2Make, players enter Raccoon City Police Department at a very early point of their journey into zombie apocalypse and come to a massive hole on a wall even before Mr. X arrives.

With Claire standing next to it, Capcom posted a photo of that wrecked wall that clearly teasing of a stalker enemy.

While Claire and Leon were trying to get out of Raccoon City with little Sherry Birkin, Jill Valentine was looking for an escape as well but her attempts were to evade the titular tyrant monstrosity Nemesis rather than the city itself.

Since events from both RE2 and RE3 are set on Raccoon City, it shouldn't be a big surprise why they already added this part into an early installment. There are good chances for players to revisit similar areas from RE2Make into upcoming follow-up title.

They also posted another photo of Jill from Resident Evil HD Remaster only a day before, as someone is watching her under a bed. In both cases, she is a lead character in those games and a mysterious stalking foe is hinted heavily.

After RE2 Remake was officially revealed back at E3 2018, Capcom posted a photo of Nemesis on Twitter a month later on Friday the 13th, comparing to another stalking adversary Jason Voorhees, which led fans to believe it a tease to another remake.

Nemesis provided a unique kind of horror where protagonist character is constantly chased throughout the city blocks by an RPG-wielding unkillable monster, which is hell-bent on eradicating any and every living S.T.A.R.S. member.

According to Twitter leaks from reliable source EVIL VR back in January 2019, developers are currently working on Resident Evil 3 Remake and Resident Evil 8 but are very much interested in delivering RE3 before going back to origin of Eveline.

Players take on a unique journey from one of the eight main protagonist characters, each following a distinctive yet interlaced path of adventure on a fictional land of Orsterra that would finally have them unite with rest of their peers.

They would often come across NPCs during quest and sometime engage in confrontation using different abilities via a turn-based combat system. Also, they can be helpful at times in building reputation, getting new armor and finding items.

We are still not sure that whether or not the game would go through any significant changes switching form Nintendo Switch to Steam since there was no mention of adding any special feature but we may expect some higher frame rates perhaps.

To match upgraded visuals of modern day consoles, it is rendered in a graphical aesthetic that developers termed as HD-2D, which offers high-definition textures while retaining a retro-vibe capturing essence of 16-bit era of video games.
