The Last of Us Part II
Naughty Dog has finally resurfaced with more footage of The Last of Us Part II, as well as the coveted release date.
Just watching the trailer has us hyped for what is to come as Ellie begins her revenge, with Joel (thank goodness you are alive!) along for the ride. Goosebumps aside, The Last of Us Part II arrives February 21, 2020.
Several versions of the game will be made available, including two awesome editions that will be one for the collectors.

The Special Ops Survival Mode will also be coming first to PS4, with the timed exclusivity lasting till October 1, 2020.
A surreal title, to say the least, Humanity could be our generation’s take on Lemmings. More details to come.
Wattam finally has a release window of December, as players prepare to “join Mayor as he reunites with new and old friends and discovers the forgotten joy of their world. Take control of a cast of characters by yourself or with a friend, transform into fruits & poops, climb to new heights, laugh, cry, tumble, and soar beyond the differences of words and thoughts to bring everyone together.”
Arise: A Simple Story
A stunning new game that comes via Piccolo Studio and Techland Publishing, Arise “starts where many might end – on a funeral pyre. You wake up in limbo, where a mysterious light beckons you from atop of a snowy mountain. Your trek towards it turns into a bittersweet journey through your life, where you relive the moments of happiness but also have to face devastating tragedies all over again.”
