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.

He also posted another image on Instagram of himself with actor Laura Bailey, who is playing an unnamed character.

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.

Capcom Teasing Resident Evil 3 Remake! Again!

Capcom has been teasing photos on twitter that clearly hint at a very possible remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.

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.

Now that they have delivered fans what they have been wanting for years, the company shifts their focus to next Resident Evil game and they most probably are on board with a Resident Evil 3 Remake according to mysterious tease from social media.

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.

There is theme of James regressing his feelings for Roger even though all mostly he does is question every actions of his associate, which possibly is a result of a dystopian era of a society they live in, where no one would accept this unlikely couple.

Back 4 Blood Announced

Left 4 Dead creators Turtle Rock Studios announced a spiritual sequel and upcoming co-op zombie shooter Back 4 Blood.

Zombie shooter games have always a special place to video game lovers all over the world but very few have succeeded in matching the legacy created by Left 4 Dead of 2008 by developer Turtle Rock Studios and publisher Valve Corporation.

A sequel, Left 4 Dead 2 came out in 2009 and a decade has passed in anticipation for release of a third installment with no hope for it or whatsoever, until now. Apparently, the original studio that worked on L4D is back with a spiritual sequel titled Back 4 Blood.

Turtle Rock is currently developing a cooperative shooter game where players will fend off hordes of zombies for the sake of their own survival, which sounds a lot like what L4D offered but they insist that it really is an original and unique IP.

Despite taking inspiration from the popular co-op zombie shooter franchise, the development team insists that the game is not Left 4 Dead 3 at all. They are about to introduce new features to honor the legacy of the preceding titles but being very coy about them.

RELATED: Job Listing Suggests Left 4 Dead 3 in Development?

Back in June 2018, a job listing for hiring animator, character concept artist and level designers with expertise of working on competitive FPS posted by the studio for a globally known franchise had many of us believed that Left 4 Dead 3 was indeed in development.

Of course, B4B will have a campaign mode while option for player-versus-player combat will also be there. However, they are not planning on to push a Battle Royale mode for it as it is heading to launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

RELATED: Steam Top-Selling & Most Played Games 2018

Developers are working in collaboration with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for this project that is committed to a player-first mentality. With everything they have learned over years, Turtle Rock Studios only focuses to move forward with new ideas.

When finished, Back 4 Blood would be a great opportunity for old-school fans of Left 4 Dead to jump back into a genre they craved for so long and new generation of players would be able to experience the same thrill of taking on undead hordes with squad mates.
