The Last of Us Day (Outbreak Day)

With Outbreak Day soon what should we expect to see this upcoming Sunday?

So far it's looking like Sackboys Adventure is getting DLC.

I'm hoping for something on Factions 2, obviously that's a stretch but even an update on when we can hear more would be nice to see. Factions 2 is going for a cinematic multiplayer experience. It's a nice change of pace from our typical MP games right now.

A mature, visceral, and strategic style MP sounds awesome.

What do you all think we'll get on Sept 26th Outbreak Day?

Hopefully Factions.

If not then at least update Last of Us 2. The ability to change outfits. Add challenges like Days Gone. Make replaying enounters rewarding like Gold Silver Bronze like in GTA V/RDR2.

As it stands we know about the HBO series, Factions 2 and the reported TLOU Remake that's in dev. Beyond that I wouldn't be surprised if there was a TLOU2 Directors Cut in the works along with a mobile game of some sort since Sony are investing more in mobile.

There's a lot of potential for them to show off something, but we shouldn't expect anything huge.

My bet of that they will announce:
-TLOU2 PS5 native version: with $10 PS4 to PS5 upgrade
-TLOU2 MP game: crossgen GaaS
-TLOU2 Director's Cut: crossgen bundle of TLOU2 + TLOU2 MP game
-TLOU1 remake: PS5 only DLC of TLOU2DC PS5 included in its Digital Deluxe Edition, a la Spider-Man Remastered
-First trailer of the TLOU tv series

What I'd love them to announce and I'd buy day one but I think they won't make:
-Single player TLOU2 DLC focused on Joel with him as the only playable character
-To confirm Ellie will kill Abby in the TLOU3 intro and that Abby won't appear anywhere else including cameos in other games like Sackboy/LBP or in the tv series.

What I'd hate them to announce and won't buy but I think it's likely they may announce it:
-Single player TLOU2 DLC focused on Abby with her as the only playable character. I don't want to see Abby again unless she appears during less than 5 minutes and it's to chop her head off.

Merch and fan art as always.

No game news.

That would be awesome and Naughty Dog thinks differently than most devs, so they'd add a twist to the BR style game

This made me think of something.......I know this is sacrilege, but how cool would a tlou2 remake be that wasn't so damn dark and featured Joel and ellie only......complete rewrite.........I know it would need new voiceovers and script, but you could use the same engine and locations.......

I'd love to see all the expansion stuff at least announced but I am guessing it is mostly going to be fan art, some free avatars, and not much else.

Maybe they can post a final tally of how many Game of the Year awards it took home to bring a tear to the eye of the people who cry when a story they didn't write doesn't go their way.

I'd like that. Many MP games are way too fast paced for me, especially on console.
That's why I still love DayZ, although I know about its' flaws, but spending some hours with friends in this game is just relaxing.
Maybe Factions 2 is more open, not typical matches à 10-15 minutes, but more of fluent gameplay, dynamic lobbies while strafing around or something like that.
Something like ARMA Wasteland in the TLOU universe would be awesome.

Yes. Or for TLOU3 could start with Ellie chopping Abby's head off with a chainsaw in the second 1 of the game. And all the game would be Ellie and Tommy remembering stories with Joel, who would be the only playable character of the game via these flashbacks.

Would be great if any of this happened, but I feel like they would have included TLoU content in the Future of PlayStation event if anything was really happening so soon. (A teaser for more news to come on Sept 26 would have been smart and IMO would not have distracted too much from GoW and the rest of the games shown on the 9th.) Then again, the internet news cycle is instantaneous so they don't need to pack events together, they can just run a broadcast and the world changes, and maybe they wanted 100% of focus on the titles they did show since they knew TLoU would ring its own bell.

Would be great if...

It will probably be merchandise and other media-mix items.
They're doing this since 2013. I think the sales numbers and cash they made with TLOU2 was enough to cope for them ;)
Genuine question: what are the sales of TLOU2? Have they updated it since mentioning 4M near launch week?

It will sell as much as the original TLOU. That’s the guess I just pulled out of my ass.
