The year 2018 was quite hectic for the console of Sony and has brought great exclusive releases, like God of War and Spider-Man, for example. In 2019, expectations for PS4 games are even higher, especially with the possible arrivals of The Last of Us – Part II (will it now?) And Final Fantasy VII Remake.
- What we know about the PS5; Sony prepares successor to PlayStation 4
- 5 most anticipated games only for Xbox One in 2019
Let’s go to the list of the most anticipated exclusive of PlayStation 4 for next year, as well as a summary of what can also come as cross-platform.
1. The Last of Us – Part II
Announced to the world by Sony in December 2016 during the PlayStation Experience, The Last of Us – Part II is perhaps the most anticipated exclusive for PS4 in 2019. The game has a responsibility to continue the success that the title predecessor was. Developers have already revealed that, unlike the first game, now you will control young Ellie, not Joel anymore.
The Naughty Dog studio promises a much more brutal gameplay with even more controversial choices. With the hype of the players in the heights, we can only wait for some sign of the definitive launch.
2. Final Fantasy VII Remake
Announced at E3 2015, there are still few details about the remake of this Square Enix RPG, but the game is surrounded by high expectations among fans of the franchise. The original game was released in 1997 and shows the saga of the mercenary Cloud Strife to prevent the Shinra megacorporation from using all the vital essence of the planet as an energy source.
3. Death Stranding
Admit it. So far you have not understood correctly what the game is about. But if it is a game of Hideo Kojima, creator of the Metal Gear franchise, you can expect everything: until you understand nothing, in principle. Death Stranding, as far as it was possible to decipher, appears to be a title of action in an open world.
The closest of a gameplay shown until today was during E3 2018, where the protagonist appears walking and climbing mountains with huge boxes on the back or with what looks like a very well packed body. Towards the end of the trailer, he uses a very strange fetus to feed what appears to be a “lightning rod” … Of monsters?
Kojima has cast a heavy cast for its production, such as actors Norman Reedus ( Daryl Dixon – The Walking Dead), Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux, Lindsay Wagner, Troy Baker, Tommie Earl Jenkins and Emily O’Brien.
4. Days Gone
Days Gone is one more of those games that take you, again, to an open post apocalyptic world. The game is a mix of action and adventure with survival horror and takes place in a region northwest of the Pacific. You control Deacon St. John, an ex-felon who, like all who are still alive, try to survive in this new reality.
While exploring the environment, Deacon will face other survivors for resources, as well as (of course) zombies, which can be both human and animal. The interesting thing about this title is that it somewhat resembles World War Z , starring Brad Pitt, with hordes of undead attacking in large numbers at the same time, and at incredible speed – to someone who is already dead.
5. Ghost of Tsushima
The game is the latest production from the Sucker Punch studio, the same as the inFamous series – also exclusive to Sony. The game takes place during the period of the Mongol invasions of Tsushima Island, Japan, in 1294. You take control of a solitary samurai, who has become a murderer determined to expel the invaders from his country.
6. Nioh 2
Surprising everyone, Sony announced at E3 2018, Nioh 2 – the sequel to their samurai action game, which was well received by the fans. Not much is known yet about the story, or even if the player will again control the protagonist WIlliam Adams.
