PS5: A surprise is hidden in the new Playstation Plus

On the Day menu on June 23, 2022, we start with all the new information about FF16. We continue with the launch of the new PS Plus in France, then we go to the Lord of the Rings series from Amazon, which is preparing for the launch. The Daily is on.

Final Fantasy 16, the saga’s first PEGI 18?

Final Fantasy 16 is the star of Square Enix at the beginning of the decade. JRPG has the heavy task of embodying after FF15, a project in which Square Enix had left feathers. In addition to this difficult legacy, FF16 must create space for itself, between the FF14 MMORPG that always hits the target and the FF7 Remake, the love letter to the fans who monopolize the heart. As a reminder, FF16 will tell us the story of a war-torn world, where each nation has its own weapon of mass destruction: a primordial, a kind of great destructive conscription. When not in battle, they live in the bodies of the main characters, treated differently depending on the city. Some are adored, others chased away from their families. In this universe, we incarnate Clive, who has the uniqueness of being able to absorb the power of the clock he encounters. This gives rise to clashes like Devil May Cry sprinkled with RPG. There is a real desire to open the game to a wider audience, especially thanks to the hyper-lively combat system and this absence of an open world, to take advantage of a close epic. Moreover, given the degree of violence, and the dark themes of the scenario, this FF16 will be rated M for Mature, we can therefore expect a minimum PEGI 16, or even a PEGI 18 in France, a first for the franchise. has always been quite civilized on visual and moral violence.

The new PS Plus is launched in France with a surprise!

PlayStation Plus, the PlayStation service that aims to modernize its offering in light of Microsoft’s Game Pass Ultimate, arrives in France today! In this new PlayStation Plus there is the basic component, Essential. It offers neither more nor less than what PS Plus offered before, free games every month, online games and discounts in the store. Then this is where it gets complicated. The next component is called PS Plus Extra. It includes the basic PS Plus and a few great additions, such as access to the game catalog, a list of PS5 and PS4 games, games of all types, which make this component relatively similar to a Game Pass. It is 100 euros for an annual subscription, and 14 euros if you pay monthly. Clearly, the annual subscription is more interesting. The superior formula, the very last, then comes, to 120 euros a year, therefore 10 euros a month. In addition to everything you have previously unlocked, you get access to a catalog of classic games, PlayStation retro games, PlayStation blockbuster trial sessions, streaming galore, lots of games that you will have access to on PS5, but also on PC.

The Lord of the Rings series reinvents the orcs!

Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series is a gigantic project. We are talking about a budget that has never been right before, with a first season costing $ 1 billion. As we know, the saga will focus on the rings of power, and we imagine it, on Sauron. The orcs thus have a great significance in history, and they are very different from those we might cross in the trilogy of films by Peter Jackson. Take, for example, in the interview with our colleagues from IGN that we experience that they will have direct skin problems. Their face is also softer, less strewn with scars and traces from previous fights. There will even be female orcs on screen for the first time. The series mixes CGI and practical effects, moreover, we learned that prostheses were often preferred, especially to better transcribe the actors’ emotions, or to close-ups where we should have no image of synthesis, which will enhance the realism of the series.
