Sony has revealed minor spoilers for two blockbuster new PS4 games.
Death Stranding and The Last of Us Part 2 will see the PlayStation 4 off in style ahead of the PS5’s 2020 release date.
Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding is first up, launching with a November 8 release date exclusively on PS4.
Naughty Dog’s Last of Us 2 isn’t too far behind, after Sony announced a February 21 release date in 2020.
In the build up to the launch of the bumper new PS4 exclusives, game leads Hideo Kojima and Neil Druckmann have revealed new details about the upcoming adventures.
Needless to say, there are very minor spoilers ahead for The Last of Us Part 2 and Death Stranding.
Speaking at the Garage Museum of Modern Art in Moscow, Hideo Kojima talked fans through a Death Stranding side quest that has major ramifications.
According to Kojima (via Mp1st), a mission in Death Stranding involves the delivery of medicine to an old man living underground.
Players can continue to deliver medicine all throughout the game, although it gets harder and harder to deliver the goods as the world expands.
Fail to deliver the medicine for too long and the old man will pass away. Kojima purportedly wants the side quest to highlight the significance of forming bonds.
As for The Last of Us: Part II, Neil Druckmann has revealed more about the relationship between Joel and Ellie in the sequel.
In a chat with The Hollywood Reporter, Druckmann said that the relationship between Joel and Ellie has become strained following the events of the original game.
“The weight of the events, the choices made in the first game are coming into the second game. Obviously, Joel is still very capable. This guy has survived for many, many years in this brutal world. How that plays out, you’ll have to wait and see.”
Druckmann would also say that Joel plays a “significant part in the storyline”.
Last of Us 2 is certainly shaping up to be a game of the generation, although it was recently revealed that it would be missing a major gameplay feature.
In a statement on Twitter, Naughty Dog said that multiplayer won’t feature in The Last of Us 2.
“We wanted to address multiplayer in The Last of Us Part II,” the statement reads.
“As we’ve stated, the single-player campaign is far and away the most ambitious project Naughty Dog has ever undertaken. Likewise, as development began on the evolution of our Factions mode from The Last of Us Part I, the vision of the team grew beyond an additional mode that could be included with our enormous single player campaign.
“Wanting to support both visions, we made the difficult choice that The Last of Us Part II would not include an online mode.”
