Next PlayStation Confirmed by Sony CEO

Next PlayStation

Sony has acknowledged the existence of a follow-up to the PlayStation 4, though the company is reluctant call the next-generation “PlayStation 5.”

During an interview with the Financial Times, Sony president and CEO, Kenichiro Yoshida, stated that the next PlayStation is inevitable.

“At this point, what I can say is it’s necessary to have a [sic] next-generation hardware.”

Yoshida’s comments follow Microsoft’s announcement regarding a cloud-gaming service. Earlier this week, Google also announced Project Stream, which allows users to play console-quality games via a web browser.

Whether Sony will follow in its competitor’s footsteps by opting into cloud-gaming has yet to be seen. Based on current rumors, fans will likely get more news on the next generation of console gaming sometime in 2019. Leaked specifications for Sony’s next console indicate a massive upgrade over Microsoft’s Xbox One X.

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month

Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 has been talked about for a while now and is finally coming late next month.

Announced today by publisher Gun Media, the sequel to the psychological romp through artistic ego Layers of Fear is set to launch May 28 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel looks to cover similar ground as its predecessor. As a first-person psychological horror with “an emphasis on exploration and story,” players meander through heavily-scripted set-pieces while solving puzzles and being scared a whole lot.

Layers of Fear 2, though, will be swapping the paintbrush for the dizzying heights of Hollywood. According to the game’s Steam synopsis, players “control a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.”

Stifled by their own acting ambitions, the protagonist finds themselves alone and marooned on an increasingly nightmarish boat. The game’s unnamed protagonist must navigate their own past and the challenges the director sets them to unlock the secret to not just the film they are starring in, but their own motivations.

The original Layers of Fear was a captivating take on modern, story-driven horror, so the sequel’s inventive premise and greater scope are welcomed. While the sequel is embarking to a radically different setting, the title looks likely to recapture the original’s claustrophobic, atmospheric level design.
