Don’t Worry, Sony Also Really Wants ‘The Last Of Us 2’ To Happen

Ever since The Last Of Us blew everyone’s minds in 2013 people have been asking one simple question: WHEN WILL I GET A SEQUEL?!

Well, we still don’t have an answer to that question, but Sony wants everyone to know that they want one just as bad as everyone else. Here’s what Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida said on the issue:

“I asked [community strategist Arne Meyer] that question last night over dinner. We haven’t confirmed The Last of Us 2, but ever since the launch of the first game, people like [creative director Neil Druckmann] are talking about some ideas for a potential sequel, some experiments that they want to do,” said Yoshida.”

While it seems strange at first that development hasn’t even begun yet for The Last of Us 2, considering how loved the first game was I’m sure they want to do everything they can to live up to it.

This Is Why Uncharted: Golden Abyss Isn’t In The Nathan Drake Collection

The PlayStation 4-exclusive Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is missing one of Nathan Drake’s best adventures, and that is Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Many have been wondering why the PlayStation Vita game was not making an appearance in the Nathan Drake collection, and now Naughty Dog has revealed their reasoning.

According to community strategist Arne Meyer, they actually were considering adding the game into the collection. Here’s what Arne said during a panel at EGX 2015 last week:

“It was definitely under consideration, because we were trying to see how we could collect all of the Uncharted games, but when we went back and looked at what we were trying to do with the Nathan Drake Collection, we realized that those three games – the trilogy – actually provided a particular narrative arc that led into Uncharted 4. We wanted to keep that as a holistic collection for that reason, and Golden Abyss kind of lives a little bit outside of that.”

While it kind of makes sense, it’s still weird to call a game the Nathan Drake collection and not have it contain all of Nathan Drake’s adventures. I’ve played Golden Abyss and love it, so hopefully they find some way to add it in later on.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Graphics Comparison Shows Big Improvements

The first 3 Uncharted games are coming to the PlayStation 4 next month in the form of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, and YouTube channel Digital Foundry is showing it off in a new video.

While the video goes tackles a lot of things, the best moment comes when we get to see the game put side-by-side with the original PlayStation 3 version. Everything looks much more vibrant and detailed, and with the original games still looking impressive to this day that is saying something.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection launches on October 9 exclusively for the PlayStation 4.

Naughty Dog Still Hasn’t Figured Out What The Last Of Us 2 Will Be Like

The Last of Us was back in the headlines recently as a sequel to the game was being mentioned as in-development by developer Naughty Dog. However, Naughty Dog has clarified what is actually going on with the The Last Of Us 2 and it isn’t nearly as reassuring as some fans would hope.

Neil Druckmann had a chat with official PlayStation Magazine regarding the rumors, to which he said the following:

“When Bruce and I moved over to Uncharted 4, we were brainstorming ideas for The Last Of Us 2 with new characters; ideas for The Last Of Us 2 with Joel and Ellie; ideas for a sci-fi game; ideas for a fantasy game, and building prototypes for each one of those ideas. And just as we were getting close to settling or narrowing that list down, we were asked to work on Uncharted 4.”

He goes on to suggest that conversations regarding The Last Of Us 2 have not happened in a while and probably won’t for a while longer:

“You know, there’s a part of me that’s really looking forward to going back to those things, but I have no cycles left in my mind even to be thinking about that right now! So, I guess [Nolan North] was kind of right in that we were working on stuff, but we don’t know what we’re doing next and we won’t know until probably a few months after we finish Uncharted 4.”

Naughty Dog Explains Why Uncharted 4 Will Be Getting Single-Player DLC

The Uncharted series has had 3 awesome games released over the course of several years, though not even one of them has had any kind of single-player DLC. This is going to be changing with the release of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, however, which has left some fans scratching their heads.

Uncharted 4 A Thief's End DLC

Well, the dev spilled the beans on the reason why they are doing this at the GameStop Expo, where it was revealed that the main inspiration for doing this was attributed to the success of The Last Of UsLeft Behind DLC.

“It worked really well for us for The Last of Us. We thought we could put together a really great piece of content as well. I think we rose to the challenge for The Last of Us, so we decided we’re going to take another shot at it.”

The release of this single-player DLC will come as a part of the Uncharted Triple Pack, which will also include two multiplayer packs that contain rare multiplayer items.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will launch exclusively for the PlayStation 4 on March 18th, 2016.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Getting Demo This Summer

All 3 console Uncharted games are getting remastered for the PlayStation 4 via Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection later this year, but gamers will be able to try it out before that. Sony has announced that the game will be getting a demo later this Summer, though exact details on what it will include were not revealed.

On the PS Blog it was noted that the improved gameplay mechanics found in the third entry in the series will be incorporated into the first and second entries, as a way to make all of the games play similarly. The changes are stated as being “subtle”, however, so I wouldn’t expect anything mind-blowingly different in any remastered versions of the game.

A few new screenshots were also shared for the upcoming game, so have a look at those directly below.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is developed by Naughty Dog exclusively for the PlayStation 4. It’s set to launch on October 7th, 2015.

The Last Of Us DLC Left Behind Going Standalone This Month

This month fans will be able to download the much-loved DLC of the Last Of Us.

Nuaghty Dog’s smash hit The Last Of Us‘ DLC called Left Behind is gearing up to be released as a standalone game this month.

This DLC will be available for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 via the PS Store and will come with a two-hour demo of the Factions multiplayer.

A post on the Naughty Dog website said the following:

“If you haven’t had a chance yet to check out The Last of Us, this is a nicely priced gateway to checking out the world and characters so many people (and critics loved). While part of the story of Left Behind takes place during the main narrative arc of The Last of Us, I think some of the best and most touching moments of any game in recent memory occur during the prequel segments, as we follow Ellie and Riley as they sneak out of boarding school to visit an abandoned mall, getting one final chance to enjoy their friendship before Riley leaves to join the Fireflies.”

The Last Of Us: Left Behind is developed by Naughty Dog and will be available as a standalone download on May 12th for $9.99.
