Sony reveals new The Last of Us Part II trailer and more at Paris Games Week

31 Oct 17

Sony arguably showcased bigger trailers and announcements at Paris Games Week than E3 this year. The biggest revelation is some new The Last of Us Part II footage. 

The Last of Us Part II is looking gruesome and realistic. The footage shows some unknown female heroes going up against some bad guys. Joel and Ellie are surprisingly absent from this new trailer. 

The trailer also allows us to see the advancements Naughty Dog has made in terms of graphical fidelity. All of the footage you see from the trailer has been captured using the PS4 Pro.

Another huge trailer landed for the new Spider-Man video game that is exclusive to the PS4 and PS4 Pro. Some of the villains showcased here include the likes of Kingpin, The Shocker and more. 

The game features an older Peter Parker and has an original storyline. It is being developed by the talented folks over at Insomniac Games. It is due out sometime in early 2018.

Another game set to be released in Spring 2018 is Quantic Dream's Detroit: Become Human. Some of you may remember this developer for hits such as Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls. 

A brand new game was also announced at Paris Games Week. Infamous' Sucker Punch Productions is making an all new IP called 'Ghost of Tsushima". This game is set in feudal Japan where you can be a Samurai in a large open world.

God of War continues the PS4 exclusives lineup. There's not a release date for the game yet, but we do see more footage of Kratos and his son in the new trailer. 

Lastly, the release date for the remake for Shadow of the Colossus. The game will be out on February 6th, 2018. Check out all the remaining trailers down below.
