Summer Game Fest 2022

The exhibition held on June 9, did not surprise us with loud announcements, but there is something to see.

So the Summer Game Fest 2022 game conference ended – unfortunately, there were no high-profile announcements. In two hours, the audience managed to find several funny coincidences: in the first hour, they showed a lot of spiritual heirs of Dead Space (all kinds of space horror), while in the second hour – much more all kinds of anime games.

In general, the show started quite rapidly, but after loud announcements, it slowed down significantly. We did not expect any surprises, and more attention was paid to the games of small publishers and developers. This is not bad, but we have hoped for more given the gaming drought.

The Last of Us Remake

The finale of the ceremony was the announcement of a remake of The Last of Us. The developers promise to rework the battles on a large scale, using all the new knowledge from Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and The Last of Us: Part 2.

At the same time, all the animations and artwork were recreated from scratch, but the actors were not called back to the set, wanting to keep everything as close to the original as possible.

The Last of Us Multiplayer

Neil Druckmann shared the first details of the multiplayer game based on The Last of Us. It will be fully shown only in 2023, but the project is very important and in scale, it is commensurate with other Naughty Dogs. Moreover, an interesting plot is also promised.

There are some rumours that it will be possible to gamble in the game as well. However, it will not have a traditional form of gambling where you can visit a casino to play poker. Actually, it will be in a form between players where they need to risk something to get some items. Though, if you are interested in gambling you can visit the Mason Slots Canada website and try out a bunch of interesting titles on the platform.
