Sony PlayStation has announced a new State Of Play stream that will focus on the eagerly awaited ‘The Last Of Us Part 2’.
The stream was announced on PlayStation’s official Twitter account earlier today, revealing that the State Of Play will be broadcast at 9 PM BST on Wednesday, May 27th – weeks before the game launches on June 18th.
According to reports, the State Of Play will include a “deep-dive” into The Last Of Us Part 2’s gameplay that’s already been featured in various other videos. The stream will also feature narration by Naughty Dog Vice President and Part 2 Co-Director Neil Druckmann.
Reports have also confirmed that the stream will feature eight minutes of gameplay from a new area of the game not previously shown. The State Of Play will run for more than 20 minutes, similar to last week’s State Of Play on Suckerpunch’s Ghost Of Tsushima.
Sid Shuman, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Senior Director of Content Communications, said in a statement: “Over the course of this nearly 25-minute episode, Neil Druckmann, Director of The Last Of Us Part 2, will provide an extensive look at the gameplay, threats, and world of the game. To cap it all off, he’ll introduce a never-before-seen extended gameplay sequence to close out the show.”
Similarly to when Sony announced the Ghost Of Tsushima State Of Play, Sony stated that there will be no news of the PS5 during the stream. The news comes not long after Sony announced a limited-edition The Last Of Us Part 2-themed PlayStation 4 Pro console engraved with Ellie’s tattoo.
The new console can be bought as a bundle with a matching DualShock 4 controller, a copy of The Last Of Us Part 2 with a SteelBook Case, a voucher for a new Dynamic Theme, six PSN Avatars, a digital soundtrack, and an art book by Dark Horse.
PlayStation Rumours – PS Plus Games & A PS5 Announcement
The news comes as Sony PlayStation announced Call Of Duty as one of the free games for June’s PS Plus members. The second game is rumoured to be Marvel’s Spider-Man which reportedly appeared on the PS Store for free this week. However, no official announcement has been made on this, and it may just be a glitch.
Meanwhile, it’s rumoured that Sony will be announced its early June PS5 event sometime this week. There has been speculation that the tech giant will be announced a slew of exclusive games that will launch with the new console later this year.
Just last week, Kenichiro Yoshida, the President and CEO of Sony, stated in a corporate strategy meeting that it will be revealing its games soon. He said: “Games for the PS5 that deliver this new game experience are being made by both first and third-party developers and we plan to introduce a compelling line-up of titles soon.”
With only a few months to go, fans are eager to hear some news of games for the upcoming console, as well as the first official look at the home console. Stay tuned for more.
