With E3 returning in 2023, this may well be the last time Geoff Keighley unofficially opened the summer announcement season, although a physical edition has already been unveiled for Summer Game Fest 2023. For this 2022 vintage of the SGF, the organizer proposed a two-hour show full of trailers and announcements mixing independent productions and big AAA machines.
The Last of Us Remake: The Spoiled Surprise
A few hours away, the Playstation Direct site made a small mistake, revealing the first images, the release date and the trailer for The Last of Us Remake, exclusive to PS5 and in development on PC. Between visuals brought back to the taste of the gamer and redesigned handling, a whole new generation of players will be able to discover TLOU and its DLC Left Behind in conditions worthy of current media on September 2nd . Note that a PC version is also in development. A small surprise was nevertheless revealed during the conference: the multiplayer mode was mentioned and it will be the most extensive TLOU game ever designed by Naughty Dog . For more information, we will have to wait until 2023.
We've been hearing about a remake for Naughty Dog's masterpiece for a while now. It would normally have been necessary to wait for the Summer Game Fest to finally see what The Last of Us Part I (as it is now called) will look like on PS5, but a leaker decided otherwise…
Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone hand in hand
The Call of Duty series begins its transformation towards the new generation, revisiting one of its great classics, also for the new generation. This evening, Activision unveiled a long gameplay sequence on an oil rig, just to do a little technical demonstration. It's quite successful and it comes out as usual at the end of the year, but this release should also herald the arrival of Warzone 2.0, the publisher's hit battle royale. As usual, the developers will very quickly offer a beta so that the community can get a glimpse of the game's multiplayer and, finally, pre-orders are already open.
Zelda, Pokémon, LEGO Star Wars, Xenoblade or Dark Souls, here are all the big sales currently underway on the Nintendo Switch.
