Naughty Dog Gives A Glimpse At The Story Of The Last Of Us Part II

As the June 19 release date for PS4 title The Last of Us Part II approaches, Sony and developer Naughty Dog have started a trailer series delving deeper into the game's elements. Today's inaugural video explores aspects of the title's story.

Directors Neil Druckmann and Anthony Newman, and narrative lead Halley Gross discuss why they are telling more of Joel and Ellie's story, where the game begins, and an idea of where it may go.

"I think this one might be more divisive than the first game – in a very kind of exciting way," says Druckmann, "that I think raises those interesting philosophical questions and asks the player to interpret some of the material that's there and see where they stand on those questions."

Mafia Trilogy Teased In New Trailer

If you've been missing the Mafia series since Mafia III released in 2016, you may be getting an offer you can't refuse. Publisher 2K and developer Hangar 13 (the studio behind Mafia III) released a teaser trailer this morning that unveils Mafia Trilogy.

This series, beginning with the original Mafia in 2002, offers a gritty look at the world of organized crime over the course of three games, each one featuring a different protagonist. You can see these characters, like Vito Scaletta and Lincoln Clay, in the trailer above. 

Is Mafia Trilogy a collection? A remaster? A remake? The footage does not answer those questions, stopping short of clarifying the details or scope of the project. However, fans who want more info won't need to wait long. The trailer promises an announcement next week on May 19.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Dutch Returns As Predator: Hunting Grounds DLC

In 1987, few characters were more badass than Alan "Dutch" Schaefer, Arnold Schwarzenegger's muscle-bound merc who went toe to toe with a Predator in the original Predator film. Now, players can assume the role of Dutch, with new voiceover and narration from Schwarzenegger, in upcoming DLC for the recently released Predator: Hunting Grounds. 

According to Entertainment Weekly, Dutch will be available as a new paid DLC fireteam member starting May 26. In addition, new narration performed by Schwarzenegger will give additional background information on what Dutch has been doing since the events of the original Predator film. The narration serves as tapes recorded by Dutch after the incident that left him as the only survivor. 

Dutch arrives as DLC for Predator: Hunting Grounds on May 26. For our thoughts on the new asymmetric multiplayer title, check out our review.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2 Are Getting Remastered And Bundled

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2 Are Getting Remastered And Bundled

Activision's recent success of restoring Crash Bandicoot, Crash Team Racing, and Spyro the Dragon will hopefully continue with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2, classics that originally appeared on PlayStation in 1999 and 2000 respectively. Developed by Neversoft, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater changed the world of gaming and gave way to an entire subgenre of sports titles, from more "pro" titles by Activision for BMX and surfing, to the SSX series, and rival games like EA's Skate.

This isn't the first time Activision has tried to bring the fire back to the Tony Hawk gaming brand. In 2012, developer Robomodo released Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, and it wasn't warmly received, being viewed as a step down from the original games both in technical performance and the vision of the new content that was added. Activision again partnered with Robomodo for 2015's Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, which was so bad, it appeared to be the final nail in the coffin for the Tony Hawk games.
