game release date for PS4:
Yakuza 6 for PS4 is the next installment of the series of action-adventure games focused on the Japanese criminal underworld. As always, the title was developed by the Japanese company Sega. Yakuza series was born in 2005, on PlayStation 2. Since the debut of the first entry in the saga the franchise received a few main installments and spin-offs. Among the latter there were games that took place in 19th century and focused on different characters and there were games focused on completely unrealistic events like a zombie invasion in Tokyo (Yakuza: Dead Souls). It is worth adding that for the first time in the series, the director and actor that created movie adaptation of the first Yakuza that was released in 2005, will make a guest appearance in the game.
The story presented in Yakuza 6 once again focuses on the adventures of Kazuma Kiryu who must face new problems related to his long relations with Yakuza. The player will once again meet the well known characters and inhabitants of the fictional entertainment district of Tokyo called Kamurocho which appeared in the previous entries in the saga.
Yakuza 6 for PS4 doesn’t present any revolutionary gameplay changes. As always, the camera presents the action from the back of the protagonist. During the game the player will participate in dozens of melee fights and in many minigames and he will explore the streets and suspicious alleys. He will also complete various quests and missions. The developers expanded the size of the open world and optimized many of its elements, giving greater movement freedom to the player (for example, now it is possible to climb the roofs of the buildings).
