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.

RELATED: The Last of Us Part II Gameplay Revealed

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.

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.

Some of most-anticipated PS4 titles of 2019 like Death Stranding from Kojima Productions, Ghost of Tsushima from Sucker Punch and The Last of Us Part II from Naughty Dog can probably see a two-platform release by debuting on PS5 later to span across generations.

Though developer kits are handed to a number of game studios to work on their upcoming titles, Sony has yet to reveal an official release date for PlayStation 5 and assured that it will not launch in stores within 2019 but we can always wait for 2020.

God of War (2018) Celebrates First Anniversary

Santa Monica Studio is celebrating first anniversary for God of War with new PS4 dynamic theme and avatar set.

It has been a full year since developer Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment has brought us genre defining action-adventure PlayStation 4-exclusive game God of War and it is time for some celebration.

On their first anniversary of Kratos and his son Atreus stepping into a new saga, entire studio is planning a week-long celebration to honor their dedicated fan-base of this beloved action game and they also have a message for community.

Kick-starting their mythical journey back in 2005 when Santa Monica rolled in their first installment for God of War, the studio already celebrated 10 year anniversary of this renowned fan-favorite franchise back in 2015.

Then creative director Cory Barlog came up with a vision that would revamp everything about the series by sending Kratos on a journey to fulfill last wishes of his wife and his son Atreus to honor his mother, while building a dynamic father-son duo.

Bringing change to a long-established game series is not just hard but it comes with a lot of doubt and is a huge risk for entire dev team. However, millions of PlayStation fans have embraced that newly envisioned journey with love and passion.

To show their appreciation, a dynamic PS4 theme and a set of character avatar will be made available from this Wednesday, April 17. Regardless of whether you own the game or not, these two giveaway items are free for everyone at PlayStation Store.

Last year, the game even won "Game of the Year" honor at The Game Awards 2018 and many other prominent outlets with support from an overwhelming number of fans worldwide, which doesn't come to any surprise at all though.

Santa Monica Studio has mastered the craft of storytelling in video games over past two decades and that experience is what shaped God of War to become a masterpiece reflecting their passion for art, something we look up to see in their future games too.

Horizon Zero Dawn Sequel Confirmed by Voice Actor

A sequel for PlayStation 4-exclusive title Horizon Zero Dawn is seemingly confirmed by voice actor Janina Gavankar.

Back in February 2019, developer Guerrilla Games celebrated second anniversary of release for their 2017 action role-playing game Horizon Zero Dawn that sold over 10 million copies worldwide to become one of the best-selling PlayStation 4 games.

That level of success pretty much guarantees a sequel for this PS4-exclusive but rather than speculating, we have actress Janina Gavankar, who voiced a character named Tatai in Frozen Wilds DLC confirming its existence lately.

At Star Wars Celebration 2019 ongoing event on Chicago, Gavankar met a fan who was cosplaying as her character Iden Versio from story campaign of Star Wars Battlefront II, telling Janina that she got into playing HZD because of her.

Gavankar only replied her back saying,
It's incredible, wait 'til you see the sequel. You're gonna die. I know some secrets! You're gonna die.

Their brief conversation was recorded on camera and Reddit user ninjyte pointed out to that Twitch clip, which has now been removed but since people never forgets anything on internet; we have found access to that moment.

Gavankar has only confirmed that a sequel is indeed in works and her character Tatai from Frozen Wilds expansion is returning as well. It seems that the game is far from completion and probably in some early stage of development.

Even though Sony is skipping E3 2019, they can simply make a grand reveal through one of their upcoming State of Play episode. It can also launch sometime in 2020, same year when PlayStation 5 is also eyeing for release.

Two years have passed and fans are excited to get a HZD sequel in spite of no announcement or anything from Guerrilla Games and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment but there are no reasons for them not wanting to continue making the next game.

Upon release, Horizon Zero Dawn turns out to be one of the most popular new PS4 franchises that surpassed other exclusive titles like God of War, Marvel's Spider-Man and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End on the same platform in overall sales worldwide.

Last month, PS Plus members got their hands on first-person shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and puzzle platformer The Witness. If not matched enough with that, April 2019 is not looking for disappointing you at least.

Days Gone Story Preview

Days Gone offers a glimpse of Deacon's life with his love Sarah and their unlikely romance before the apocalypse.

Although showing major traits of being a zombie-apocalypse focused game on the surface, upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive Days Gone from developer SIE Bend Studio and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment has a lot more to offer as a survival horror action-adventure game.

Primary premise of the game is of course of a global pandemic that wiped out a large number of humankind and it forced Deacon St. John to struggle in a ravaged world just like any other survivors out there but beside that, something else motivates him to go on.

It's really nice to see that Bend Studio has given their mercenary protagonist such a back-story with an emotional depth that makes players care for him and this will make fighting for survival in an apocalyptic landscape all more worthwhile for most people.

After long delays and waiting, Days Gone is finally launching on April 26, 2019, for PS4 and the game looks even better and more interesting with each video Sony drops about it. Set into an open world environment, the single player game promises at least 30 hours worth of playtime.
