PS4 Exclusives:

Shadow of Colossus

  • Developer: SCE Japan Studio, Bluepoint Games, Inc.
  • Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment

Shadow of the Colossus was a major hit back in the days of  PlayStation 2, and the remastered version for PS3 was later released which helped increase its fan base. However, the PS4 version is almost a completely remade game. We encounter familiar colossi and similar gameplay , but seems like a new experience in 60 fps.

The Last of Us Part II

  • Release Date: 2018
  • Developer: Naughty Dog
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

The Last of Us Part II won the award for the Most Anticipated Game  and it definitely is . The Last of Us was a phenomenal game and with the release of the new trailer for the sequel , players are now more excited as to what events will take place in the new game. It has been confirmed by the studio that the adventures of Ellie will continue , but the story will be even more thrilling.

Death Stranding 

  • Release Date: Yet to be confirmed
  • Developer: Kojima Productions
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

World famous developer Hideo Kojima , after being split from Konami,  has graced us with his own development studio known as Kojima Productions and Death Stranding will be its first title. Nothing can be made out about the gameplay from the mysterious trailers and  lack of information about when it will be released . However the fact that Hideo Kojima, a well-known and respected developer is in control of this product, could be the source of why this video game is building up so much with fans around the world.

Days Gone

  • Release Date: 2018
  • Developer: SIE Bend Studio
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Post- Apocalyptic setting is the new thing going around and we love it when Zombies are the root cause . The trailer of Days Gone speaks for itself . The open world setting gives you the freedom you need and the main character is bad- ass as ever.

God of War

  • Release Date: 2018
  • Developer: SIE Santa Monica Studio
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

God of War has always been a PS favourite and Kratos , though brutal , is a star among players. The first three games of the series was a major hit , although the fourth game was a bit of a disappointment . From the looks of this game however , we see the  gameplay has changed quite a bit and Kratos is being accompanied by his son . Lets hope this turns out as promising as it looks.

Quantic Dream never disappoints us with their  decision-based storyline .
