However, Sony's Fred Dutton did offer one small clue, if anything, when he responded to a fan query over at PlayStation Blog Europe.
When asked if the August PS Plus will be announced this week, he responded:
"No, not this week-it will be the week after. It's looking like an eclectic list this month-should be something for everyone.
For those interested, there is also a summer sale that Dutton had pre-announced. Slated to begin "next week," he stated that there will be updates over the course of the next month. There are no details yet of which games will be part of the summer sale.
'The Last of Us Remastered' Gets Leaked Video and Trophies
With a few more days left until "The Last of Us Remastered" becomes available for North America (July 29) and Europe (August 1), a user has apparently leaked a walkthrough video of the game on the PS4.
Gamingbolt has spotted the footage, stating that with the upgrades in visual and graphics, the game may really be the real deal on the PS4. The video can be seen below, but note that it's a walkthrough and will contain spoilers for those who have not yet played the PS3 version of "The Last of Us."
Apart from the leaked new footage of "The Last of Us" on the PS4, the multiplayer and trophy change have also been explained. The PlayStation Blog has featured an interview with game designer Quentin Cobb and lead multiplayer designer Erin Daly, wherein a few details and changes of the multiplayer have been revealed.
"On the gameplay side, we made some important tweaks. The DLC map trophies now require five downs or executions and deaths don't matter. We added 18 new tips for new players," said Cobb.
They also reiterated the higher FPS quality for "The Last of Us Remastered" and the fact that it has greatly improved the gameplay.
"Playing with the higher fps is by far my favorite feature. This improves gameplay dramatically and makes shooting much more precise. I find that gameplay in general is much more responsive and accurate."
As for the trophies, while there are no additions for the remastered version, eight of the trophies have been changed so that they will be easier to earn.
