Ever since various consoles have come into existence, the console war was born. It all started in the 1970s, when Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 were created. It would also be the birthplace of siding with one console and one set of games against another.
Today, this continues with Sony’s PlayStation 4, Microsoft’s Xbox One, the PC master race, and even the Nintendo Switch.
Let’s examine several upcoming PS4 exclusives that will maybe tip the scales in this consoles favor if you are having a hard time deciding.
Ghost of Tsushima
The first PS4 exclusive on the list is Ghost of Tsushima by Sucker Punch. Sucker Punch was responsible for the previous exclusive series Infamous, as well as the Sly Cooper series.
This next title is something unique, big, and bold. It is certainly something that is getting people excited.
The Ghost of Tsushima game takes place in feudal Japan. In it, you take control of a samurai who stands as a last line of defense against a coming horde. Sounds simple enough. What’s the fuss then?
It is an open world game. You’ll ride through Japan on your horse and dictate that path of your adventure.
The gameplay is comprised of advanced swordplay. The game takes into consideration the art and precision of the sword. Your counters need to be precise to land the killing blow.
There are also stealth portions of the game that will have you traverse certain areas by hiding and getting around areas with your trusty grappling hook.
Last of Us 2
In the first game, you played as Joel and tried to survive in a mushroom infested world that had the infected turn into zombies.
In the second though, we see Ellie as a grown woman. She is just as fierce and determined to survive as Joel. The game will hopefully show us what Joel’s fate was, if he is still alive, and what will happen to this girl’s life.
Finally, we have Death Stranding. This is the biggest mystery on the list. From the trailers and gameplay shown, it seems to take place in a weird universe where people with super powers, invisible monsters, and precious babies in tubes exist.
While the whole thing is still a big mystery wrapped in an enigma, there are a great many things present that still excite people.
For one, it is helmed by legendary video game creator Hideo Kojima. Kojima previously worked in Konami and created the Metal Gear series. If you have never played Metal Gear, they are masterpieces of espionage gameplay, storytelling, and world building.
Apart from that, Norman Reedus who plays Darly in the Walking Dead TV series is the main character of the game. For the villain we have Mads Mikkelsen.
These are only a few upcoming PS4 exclusives for 2019. For those who own other consoles, worry not. We have other articles similar to this and analyzing upcoming video games for all consoles and that everyone can look forward to.
