  2. Cyrus Wesson from the Community team here at Bandai Namco! I’m super excited to tell you about the latest Sword Art Online (SAO) game in the franchise — Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, arriving on your PS4 February 23. Whether you’re reading this as an avid SAO gamer, a Kirito or Asuna fan, or you’re completely new to the series, Fatal Bullet will give you a rich and immersive experience in the well-known VRMMO original novel and anime series. With this entry in the video game franchise, we welcome players to the world of Gun Gale Online, a futuristic and exciting game where tactical and challenging new experiences await. Now, let’s FullDive into some of the specifics that make this game such an adventure. This is Your Story Have you ever thought to yourself, “Man, I wish I could be a part of the SAO universe?” Well, fear not FullDivers, because in Fatal Bullet, you are the hero. You get to create your own avatar and venture into the world where you’ll meet Kirito and friends while exploring new areas. You’ll make choices that help you progress through the story and dictate your relationship with the different characters. However, just because you’re not Kirito doesn’t mean you can’t experience his awesome beater skills. That’s right, you’ll be able to play as him and experience his story within the game in Kirito Mode! Just don’t forget, this is still your story where your personal choices come with a price. Original Narrative Set in Gun Gale Online Sword Art Online’s story is incredibly dynamic. Spanning across multiple different virtual worlds and realities, you never know if Kirito is going to have a sword, wings, or long hair. It’s a wild ride that we all know and love, and Fatal Bullet continues this never-ending creativity with an all new story supervised by Reki Kawahara himself. But what’s even better is this story takes place in the intense VRMMO Gun Gale Online, where players can choose what they want their gun-slinging or sword-toting weapon will be. Want to fight enemies up close and personal? Grab yourself a shotgun and a photon sword. Or, did you want to snipe unsuspecting characters from afar? Load up your sniper rifle and crouch on a mountaintop. Just make sure to check your six so Sinon doesn’t have you in her sights, or you’re toast. Dimps — Unreal Engine 4 Remember how we mentioned earlier that Fatal Bullet is incredibly immersive? Well, that’s in large part due to the game being developed by our great partners at Dimps, utilizing the power of Unreal Engine 4. You can be sure to expect stunning graphics and dynamic environments, plus an engine that can support multiple styles of play. Be sure to utilize those grappling repels, power slides, and the physical fixtures of the map to your advantage; you never know when you’ll have to escape danger. And last but not least, we have a message from Reki Kawahara himself: “Hello, everyone, I am Reki Kawahara, the author of Sword Art Online, and I am so thrilled that Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet will be releasing in the Americas very soon. The staff has put in a lot of effort into creating a very stunning game, and I believe SAO and third-person shooter fans will be pleased with this title. I hope you enjoy being the protagonist in Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, one who forges their fate while suffering from their choices.” And there you have it! Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet is your chance to dive into the Sword Art Online world. Be sure to grab it on February 23 and team up online. The world is yours, and your choices are heavier and faster than a bullet. Link Start! Przeczytaj cały wpis
  3. Shining fans rejoice! The latest installment in the Shining series, Shining Resonance Refrain, is coming to the West this summer on PS4! To get more details on the game, we caught up with Localization Producer James Kuroki, to ask him about the game, the characters and the music. Jacob Nahin: For those new to it, what is the Shining series? James Kuroki: The Shining series is a long-running Sega series. Some older gamers may recognize the name from Shining Force from the Genesis era. There was quite a hiatus since the last installment in the West, but we hope Shining Resonance Refrain can serve as the vanguard for future Shining titles. JN: What is Shining Resonance Refrain? JK: Shining Resonance Refrain, although brand new for the West, is a remaster of the PS3 game Shining Resonance, which was originally released only in Japan. This is the first time we are bringing it to the West. Along with improved graphics, Shining Resonance Refrain includes all the DLC released for the original, plus a brand-new “Refrain” mode with new content, which unlocks the Imperial Princess Excella and Dragonslayer Jinas as party members. This new mode is intended for those who want a second playthrough or who previously played the game released in Japan. JN: What will players notice when they play this game? JK: The game already looked great on the PS3, but in this remaster in 1080p, it’s gorgeous. Thanks to the increase in visual fidelity, the character models now look exactly like the illustrations provided by character designer Tony Taka, a renowned artist in Japan and abroad. Each character plays differently, so you’ll take your time trying out all moves and party combinations. The game makes an outstanding effort to keep the battles seamless and the player engaged with the battle system. The battle is action-packed, with all sides moving at once. Shining Resonance Refrain will also have both English and Japanese voiceovers available. Not only can players can choose which language they prefer to hear, but they can do it wherever and whenever they feel like. Even mid-battle! JN: How does the element of music factor into gameplay and the series’ lore? JK: The recent installments of the Shining series all have some sort of emphasis on music. Shining Resonance Refrain is no exception. Dragons share power with mankind, and mankind provides power to the dragons through the use of music. All of the party members use weapons that double as instruments and you can perform sessions during battle, providing various benefits such as increasing the party’s speed or making the enemy more vulnerable to certain attacks. There are several songs in featured in the game, done by Elements Garden, a music production group that has created many hit songs for various artists, video games, and anime. And the songs are sung by the Japanese voice actresses, including Saori Hayami, Asami Seto, and Nana Mizuki. JN: Tell us about the characters in the game. JK: The protagonist Yuma is a timid young man, oblivious to the world and gullible, due to being locked away for possessing the Shining Dragon’s soul within him. In comparison, the people around him act as role models all in their own, different ways. As the story progress, Yuma learns from them and grows to become a reliable member of the team. The characters are all unique and full of personality. For example, Kirika is a priestess who serves the Shining Dragon. She speaks very formally and is courteous, but she only sees Yuma as the Shining Dragon. Sonia, on the other hand, is very outgoing and straightforward. She helps prod Yuma during his times of indecisiveness but can be short-tempered at times. There are plenty of side stories to experience, both serious and comical, plus you can date them and see sides of them you otherwise wouldn’t be able to normally. JN: What can you tell us about Excella? JK: Excella, along with Jinas, were non-playable characters in the original game. But in Refrain mode they are available to play and have their own story to tell. Excella was a popular character in the original Japanese version, and I’m sure players will see why when they play the game. However, I do recommend playing the Original mode first though, because Refrain adds story on top of that. JN: Any final comments? JK: We’ll be hosting a livestream this Friday, 12pm PST on Sega’s Twitch channel in case anyone wants to see a first look at the localized gameplay! I am honored to be the Localization Producer for Shining Resonance Refrain, and our team is currently working hard to provide the best experience for our players. We hope the players will enjoy Shining Resonance Refrain this summer, as we ourselves are very excited to share this game with the world! Przeczytaj cały wpis

  5. [PSNews] PlayStation 4: 5 Years Ago Today…

    Today marks five years since we stood in the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City to share a name that would change our lives and hopefully yours: PlayStation 4. Introducing PS4 was an important moment in PlayStation history, so we reached out to some of the key figures who provided those first crucial details on February 20, 2013. Mark Cerny, PS4’s lead system architect, recalled the excitement of the console’s much-anticipated unveil. “It was a thrill ride of a day, that’s for sure! I’d been working on the console for about five years and had really no idea what the reaction would be – would it be welcomed? Would our event even get any attention? The response was pretty quick, though — by the end of the day, we were on the way to 34 million views of our launch trailer and it was clear that gamers really did appreciate the concept and execution of PlayStation 4.” Revealing PS4 also meant announcing exceptional new titles that would go on to become fan favorites. Sucker Punch unveiled inFamous: Second Son, one of PS4’s early hits. Five years later, Sucker Punch’s Nate Fox is in a reflective mood. “Everyone participating was so passionate about making games. In the years since then, we’ve all got to play some magnificent stuff made possible by the new hardware. For me it’s all best summed up in the two words — robot dinosaurs.” On that note, Guerrilla Games Managing Director Hermen Hulst recalled the “amazing opportunity and crazy challenge” of showcasing Killzone Shadowfall during PS4’s unveil. Onstage, that sequence was then uploaded to Facebook in one of the first demonstrations of PS4’s media sharing capabilities. “While standing onstage at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC that day, all I could think was: ‘Please, please, don’t crash!’ Well, it didn’t.” “Back then, we wanted to show that the PS4 was the real deal. Laser-focused on gamers, with perfectly balanced hardware specs for developers…. that winning combination has led to a generation of incredible titles.” Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono also remembered how PS4 opened doors in the development of creative new gaming experiences. “It made me remember how exciting it is to be on board from the ground floor and create awesome content for a powerful new machine. “The people responsible for the design of the PS4 gave us all manner of tools to scratch our creative itches and they were always eager to hear how we thought things could improve. They were very developer-centric in their approach. It’s not an overstatement to say that this philosophy is the driving force behind the amount of great content now available on the platform.” Shinji Hashimoto joined us on stage to highlight Square Enix’s Final Fantasy tech demo, which set a new bar for graphic display in gaming. He remembers the nerves he had before jumping on stage. “It was an incredible honor to be invited to speak at the New York announcement! I tend to get a little nervous even with events in Japan, but traveling all the way to New York took it to a whole new level.” That demo foreshadowed the impressive graphics work seen in later Final Fantasy PS4 releases. PS4’s announce shined a bright light on some standout independent studios too, including a stunning title that left many itching for more: The Witness. Jonathan Blow’s 3D puzzle game was a unique and innovative release for PS4, and he remembers the rapid-fire prep that went into the game’s announcement. “We had just two weeks to put together a trailer that could somehow stand on the same stage as these huge-budget system-seller games — but no area of our game was finished enough! We worked crazily, figuring out what the game would really look like, building those models, and making an in-engine system to render video out at a solid 60fps. It was all worth it!” Of course, the rest is history. The last five years have been a memorable ride — thanks for joining us on it! Przeczytaj cały wpis

  7. Hello there, PlayStation fans! As always, it’s great to be back here on the blog and today I’m incredibly excited to share with you the news that Burnout Paradise Remastered is coming to PlayStation 4 on March 16th. Did we mention it’ll be running in 4K at 60fps on PS4 Pro? If you’ve played Burnout Paradise previously you’ll no doubt have fond memories of the first time you got behind the wheel of classic cars such as the Hunter Cavalry, Carson Fastback, Jansen X12 and the Montgomery Hawker. Maybe you have a soft spot for the toy versions of the Hunter Manhattan, Krieger WTR, Carson GT Concept or the Carson Inferno van? Perhaps you enjoy cruising around Paradise City on two wheels as opposed to four. Be honest now, how many of you owned the Jansen P12 Diamond? Whatever your choice of vehicle, Paradise City allows you to tear it up in the ultimate driving playground. Race across hectic downtown avenues all the way up to the wild mountain roads and relive the high-octane stunts and wanton destruction that Burnout series has become synonymous with. But what better way to play than with friends? Burn rubber and shred metal across the open roads of Paradise City while discovering jumps, stunts and shortcuts. Wreck your friends online and collect their mugshots or join forces to demolish hundreds of online challenges. Break the rules and crash anywhere at any time. Tear up the rulebook and set speed and destruction records all over town. Send your car launching, spinning and barrel rolling through the city. Leave a trail of destruction in your rear-view mirror, wherever you go and whenever you want. What’s in the box? I’m glad you asked! Burnout Paradise Base Game Big Surf Island Party Pack Burnout Bikes Boost Special Legendary Cars Cagney Update Toys Cops & Robbers Pack We’ll see you in Paradise City! Przeczytaj cały wpis
  8. Hello, my name is Erik Odeldahl. I am the Creative Director at Fast Travel Games, a VR games developer founded in 2016 by former creators of franchises such as Battlefield & Mirror’s Edge. Today is a historical day for me and the team, and we could not more thrilled: Our debut title Apex Construct, an action/adventure we have built from the ground up for virtual reality, is finally available for PlayStation VR. The game is set in a strange future where merciless robots prowl the world as a result of mankind’s reckless experiments. Using two Move controllers, with movement options like free locomotion or teleportation, players will need to explore this world to uncover its secrets while defending themselves from synthetic creatures, utilizing an upgradable bow, arrow & shield setup. Progressing through the story, players will gradually reveal what actually happened to the world they once knew – and what their role is in the drawn out conflict between two powerful AIs. Early on, we set out on a mission out to create a VR world that was both beautiful and perilous – a world which you want to stay in and marvel at, but at the same time be cautious about and have a sense of imminent threat. In the beginning of the game, the player returns to earth after having spent an unknown period of time in the Void, a limbo between dimensions. Upon re-entry, the player soon realizes that the world is now a very different place. An event called The Shift ripped it apart and immediately reassembled it, but the fragments ended up all over the place, like scattered pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Almost all human and animal life is now gone. How did this happen, and why? This is up to the player to figure out. While 50% of Apex Construct will be combat-focused, using bow, shield and arrows — which can all be upgraded by using Radiance Points earned by killing enemies or finding secrets — the other 50% will be about exploration and puzzle solving. You’ll travel to places like pre-apocalyptic research stations, underground caves and parts of an old city, and those who take their time to explore and interact with the environment will be rewarded. Thankfully, the player won’t have to do this alone. Accompanying you through the game is the voice of Fathr, an artificial intelligence from the time before the Shift. Fathr recruits the player into its fight against Mothr, another AI with an opposing view of how the world should function. These AIs seem to have been in conflict for a very long time, maybe even since before The Shift. Why? Get exploring today and hopefully you’ll find out! Przeczytaj cały wpis
  9. One week from now Elite Dangerous will change. Elite Dangerous: Beyond — Chapter One is the first of four free updates launching in 2018 focused on community-requested core changes to the overall experience of the game, together with fresh content for Commanders to experience as you explore the Milky Way. Last year PS4 players launched into Elite Dangerous’ massively multiplayer full-scale simulation of the Milky Way. Starting with a small spacecraft and a handful of credits, we want you to make your own way in the galaxy however you choose. Trade, fight, mine, explore, hunt, or just survive — the choice is yours. From the very beginning an important part of Elite Dangerous has been the feedback we receive from our community. Your actions influence the galaxy and the ongoing story, but it also changes the way we develop the game. Your feedback has shaped our third season of content updates, and that’s why we wanted to give it to all Elite Dangerous players for free. Beyond — Chapter One will launch February 27 with an automatic update for all Elite Dangerous owners. You’ll find lots of small changes we hope will improve the ways you choose to play, but here are some of the big things we’re most excited about everyone experiencing in Beyond — Chapter One. 1.) A fairer Open Play environment, and a challenging career for criminals with the new Crime and Punishment system. The Crime and Punishment system that balances criminality and the consequences that come with it is designed to make the galaxy more challenging for advanced players, more accessible for newer players, and more difficult for any Commander who likes to hunt weaker prey. Elite Dangerous can be played Solo, with friends in a Private Group or in Open Play where the galaxy is massively multiplayer and friendly fire is always on — but we know the Open Play experience can be as daunting as it is exciting. We’ve heard your feedback and implemented a series of changes that will make life difficult for criminals who prey on new players. We’re introducing “hot ships” to increase the consequences for seasoned lawbreakers, and we’re deploying a new Advanced Tactical Response unit to hunt for repeat offenders. We’ve also rebalanced the bounty system and added levels of notoriety to create a fairer PvP environment in the open galaxy. We think Open Play is the most exciting way to play Elite Dangerous, but we want to make it a fairer place to play, too. 2.) A choice of mission rewards. In Chapter One we’ll also be making changes to the mission reward system to give players more freedom and more tools to accomplish their goals. The new system will allow players to choose between three different sets of reward packages all of roughly equivalent value at the end of every mission. It’s another way we’re making the Elite Dangerous galaxy a place where you can really play your own way. 3.) Find the best deals with improved Trade Data. We’re boosting trade with more accessible Trade Data. It’s a big change affecting the way information about the commodities markets is made available, and helping space truckers find profitable routes without turning to guides. But the new Trade Data isn’t a “win button” for traders. You’ll have to explore the galaxy and add systems to your database before the info is accessible. The more systems you visit the greater the amount of trade data available when you’re looking to make some credits for that new ship, armor plate, or missile rack. 4.) Galnet Audio keeps you up to date. The Elite Dangerous galaxy is full of news and weird events. GalNet — the main source about important events taking place in the Milky Way — gets an upgrade in Beyond — Chapter One, making it easily accessible right from your ship’s HUD with GalNet Audio. The galaxy’s news moves fast, and GalNet Audio gives players a chance to listen to the latest updates and ongoing narrative while traversing the galaxy. The story updates daily based on player activity, and we want to give you a better chance to impact it. 5.) The introduction of the Chieftain. For Elite Dangerous Horizons owners, we’re introducing a new combat-focused ship: The Chieftain. This warship was created in response to the growing alien threat and is designed to bring heavy firepower to any alien encounter. Favoring weapons and maneuverability over armor means the Chieftain will be able to dish out a lot of damage but won’t be able to take much. It’s a fun ship to fly, but also a risky one! Beyond — Chapter One And the Beyond series doesn’t end here! Chapter One opens the new season, The following two updates will see the introduction of new content, while the last Chapter of the year will once again bring major operational changes to core systems of Elite Dangerous. We’re especially excited to introduce Squadrons — a new way for Commanders to manage their player groups and take part in community goals together. We’ve been listening to your feedback and we know Elite Dangerous wouldn’t be where it is today without you, so we’re thankful for your support and we hope you’ll join the players exploring, fighting, and trading across the Milky Way. Available for all Elite Dangerous and Elite Dangerous: Horizons owners, Elite Dangerous: Beyond Chapter One makes its way onto PlayStation 4 on February 27. Przeczytaj cały wpis
  10. Hey everyone, Thank you so much for your heartfelt support of Moss and the Polyarc team during these past months of development. From visiting our booths at places like PAX and Gamescom, to sending us feedback on social media after playing Moss on the PlayStation VR Demo Disc, your interest in our hero Quill and the world we’re building has been a great source of motivation during the homestretch. We’ve been looking forward to the day we’d finally be able to get the full game in your hands and I’m happy to announce that we now concretely know when that day will be. Next Tuesday, February 27, 2018, you’ll be able to enter the world of Moss through PlayStation VR and join Quill on her incredible journey. To celebrate this announcement, we’ve also released the Moss launch trailer which provides a glimpse of Quill’s story, more gameplay, and some of the fantastic places you’ll travel with her. We hope this latest preview of Moss conveys what we set out to do: make a game that everyone can enjoy—early VR adopters, casual gamers, and truly, anyone looking for an exciting new experience. As I talked about last June in my PlayStation.Blog post during E3 2017, our aim at Polyarc has been to make the most of the immersive, interactive potential of VR to build new worlds and tell new stories. It’s been a great challenge creating Moss, but working with this technology and discovering the possibilities has been a deeply rewarding experience. None of this would have been possible without the energy and effort of every person here at Polyarc. I’m so proud of what we’ve created, and proud to be a part of this team that worked so hard to bring Quill and Moss to life. And now, in just eight days, players around the world will finally be able to experience the game we’ve had the privilege to build. We created Moss for you, so please let us know what you think. We can’t wait to hear from you. Thank you. Tam Armstrong Przeczytaj cały wpis

  14. It’s time for Fe to leave the nest and spread its wings. Hello, PlayStation fans! I’m Alexandra, the Community Manager at Zoink Games, and today I’m here to talk with you about Fe. For the last couple of years, we’ve been living and breathing the forest you’ll soon get the chance to discover yourself. We’re so excited to hear your thoughts when Fe launches on PlayStation 4 tomorrow, February 16! In Fe, you take on the role of a young cub waking up in a forest glade. You are alone. You don’t know who you are, or what you’re doing here. But if you keep your eyes open, you’ll soon discover other inhabitants of the forest. Gain their trust, and they might share their secrets and lead you forward in your adventure. It seems so long ago since we first snuck a prototype of Fe into our old title Zombie Vikings as an easter egg. In the middle of playing a hack and slash brawler filled with bad puns and monsters, players were suddenly cast into a lush forest full of beauty – and danger. This was something unlike anything Zoink had ever done before, and I’m sure a lot of people were surprised by the sudden change of art style. But the Zoink core of storytelling is still there, only in a different way. In Fe, you’ll use your voice to form relationships with the inhabitants of the forest. To take on the Silent Ones, a new threat that recently arrived in the area, you need to work together with your new friends, jump, glide and fly to get through tricky areas and hostile environments. Fe is very much inspired by our own childhoods in Sweden. It’s hard to avoid the forest when most of the country is covered by it, and it served as a playground and a place for adventures. Thick pines, small trails coated in fir needles, slender birches and croaking toads all gave their own touch to a world that was both playful and a little bit scary at times. After some initial gentle pushes in the right direction, we’ll leave you to discover all the world’s nooks and crannies for yourself. You’ll soon realize some areas will be hard to reach before learning the oh-so-important skills of climbing and gliding. These are just two of the abilities you’ll be able to unlock and make use of throughout the game. Hopefully, your journey with Fe will be just as enjoyable for you as its been for us. Enjoy your time in the forest! Przeczytaj cały wpis
  15. [PSNews] Secret of Mana Out Today on PS4

    This is Masaru Oyamada from Square Enix. I am the producer for the Secret of Mana remake. I have been working on the Mana series since 2006, when I had the opportunity to work alongside series creator, Ishii Koichi, on porting Final Fantasy Adventure (Seiken Densetsu – Final Fantasy Gaiden) to mobile phone platforms. As a fan, I first played Final Fantasy Adventure in 1991 and since then I have completed every game in this series and grew a passion for the franchise. I was one of many who felt great disappointment at there being no new Mana games after Mr. Ishii left the company. In 2014, when I was working on Rise of Mana, I had heard from many fans who wanted to play the previous titles in the series, but were unable to do so on current generation hardware. As such, I worked to remake Final Fantasy Adventure in 2016. Since then, there were many voices stating that they wanted to see a port of Secret of Mana globally, which now brings us to this remake. Having finally arrived at release day, I look back over the development and I feel that the hardest challenge we had to overcome was recreating the world map that is used when flying on Flammie. We had to alter the basic system, as well as tweak the visual design, in order to convert the way the flat terrain was depicted from the original into 3D, and making sure that everything still fit together properly. What I am most pleased with in the remake is the penultimate scene with the three heroes, just before they face the last boss. This was already a very emotional scene in the original game, but the remake enhances the drama even more with the new voices, 3D models and music, which is why I like it so much. We invite fans who played the original game to indulge in your nostalgia, as well as enjoy the new elements, such as the interlude episodes that will let you see the story in a new light. There are also some nice little Easter eggs hidden in towns across the world which we would love to see long-term Mana series veterans pick up on! This game was made with the incredible support of all the fans of the series. Everyone on the development team took care to leave in what made the original great, while also striving to make this a game that puts the Mana series on the map for many generations of gamers. As time continues to pass, we would love to see a new generation of players continue to remember Secret of Mana as one of their great gaming experiences. Przeczytaj cały wpis
  16. Right after The Evil Within 2 launched, inquisitive fans discovered something: a first-person mode that was limited to a specific part of the game’s story could be (with some finagling) extended to other areas of the game. The community began clamoring for this feature to be officially extended to the rest of the game, and the development team at Tango Gameworks has listened. The entirety of The Evil Within 2 can now be played in first-person via a free update. We spoke to Producer Shinsaku Ohara about the process and challenges of bringing a first-person mode to a third-person game. What made you decide to get this feature working for the whole game? We experimented a bit with first-person in the full game, but it was more of an afterthought and a little bit of playing around on our side, since we designed the game in third-person. Some savvy users figured out a way to activate this mode outside of its intended area, and the reaction to it was pretty positive, so we said, “What the heck. Let’s put it in as a bonus.” A lot of players like playing horror games in first-person, so for those who want to see some of the game’s situations through Sebastian’s eyes, it’s a really neat experience. What kind of development work goes into implementing an entirely new POV into a finished game? Did you run into any unique challenges? The Evil Within 2 wasn’t designed as a first-person game, so obviously it was pretty difficult. We like to think of it as a “high-level hack” so we don’t want people to compare this with Doom or anything like that. There were some scenes that just didn’t work, so it jumps back and forth a bit to third-person. But we made sure the game’s an enjoyable experience and hopefully people will enjoy playing in this mode. Do you have a favorite moment to experience in first-person? I think exploring Union in first-person makes the scale feel even bigger than it does when you’re in third-person. Also, being able to see our environments and enemies up close allows players to get an even better look at how much effort went into their designs. Przeczytaj cały wpis

  18. When we browse the #PS4share hashtag, we are constantly blown away by the creativity on display by the community, from stylized Photo Mode creations to exhilarating gameplay videos. Now, we want to celebrate and challenge the community behind it. Today we’re launching Share of the Week, a new series where we highlight the latest and greatest #PS4share creations. Here’s how it works: Every Friday, we’ll unveil that week’s Share of the Week theme. It might be as general as a game title, or we might challenge you to create a specific shot to put your in-game photography prowess to the test. Once we’ve revealed the week’s theme, it’s up to you to take screenshots (Protip: use Photo Mode in games that feature it!), or record an exciting video moment that you think fits the description and share it to your social media channels using the hashtags #PS4share and #PSBlog. Throughout the week, we’ll scour your entries to choose our favorite shares. One week after the theme is announced, we’ll highlight our favorites here at PlayStation.Blog, as well as on our Instagram and Twitter channels. We’ll also announce a new theme, giving you another chance at Share of the Week feature glory. Are you ready to be our Share of the Week? We’ll start you off with a theme that we know will inspire some breathtaking Photo Mode snapshots: Shadow of the Colossus.

  19. Your top downloads for January are here! Surprising nobody, Monster Hunter: World was the most-downloaded PS4 game of January. The first PS4 entry in Capcom’s long-running series launched to critical acclaim, and players worldwide (myself included) are hooked on its expertly tuned gameplay loop. We’re adding a new chart to the post starting this month: Top Free-to-Play Games. Including these titles in the overall charts would skew things a bit since, ya know… they’re free, but with fan favorites like Fortnite and Warframe regularly pulling in big numbers it feels wrong not to have them represented here. As always, the rankings here are determined based on number of downloads, not by revenue generated, and if you’re curious to try and of them out you can nab ’em over at PlayStation Store. Until next time!

  20. Who knew racking up an astronomical gambling debt could be so adorable? Last week our colleagues at Bandai Namco brought Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom to our studio to showcase its gorgeous story and action-packed battle system. We had a little too much fun. Ni no Kuni II follows the story of Evan, a young prince with aspirations to reclaim his kingdom. On this episode of PlayStation Underground we join Evan partway through his campaign as he enters a gambling town in search of resources. The stakes quickly rise, and we’re left with a lot of debt and a magical bird with a big mouth. Only in Ni no Kuni II, friends! Watch the complete episode above and see the incredible battle system at work, including a full suite of options for tweaking your party’s strengths and weaknesses. Enjoy the show!

  21. For Downward Spiral: Horus Station, the team and I at 3rd Eye Studios are creating a mysterious and atmospheric zero-gravity thriller set in the lost and forgotten Horus Station. It’s inspired by 2001: A Space Odyssey, Twin Peaks, Black Mirror, and There Will be Blood, and it’s coming to PS4, PS4 Pro, and PS VR spring this year. Mysterious, Interpretive, Cooperative We’re focused completely on visual storytelling in Downward Spiral. The game features no traditional voiceover, audio diaries, or cinematics like other games. We are creating a story that’s discovered, not told, with environmental queues. Players will have to piece together the plot through observation and interpretation, as you navigate the derelict space station’s environments, accompanied by the electronic ambient soundtrack composed by platinum selling HIM frontman Ville Valo. Electronic Ambient Score Ville Valo, the platinum selling HIM frontman is a friend of 3rd Eye Studios and has created an amazing, electronic, ambient score for the whole experience. It’s very different from what he’s known for — dark, unique, and fantastic. It will help us emphasize our key moments and make our thriller even more intense. We’re going to have a developer diary focused on the music and sound of Horus Station, so stay tuned to know more. Innovative Player Locomotion in Zero-G Another exciting thing about Downward Spiral: Horus Station is our control system that rethinks movement in zero-gravity. Rather than just float, players will have to push themselves off of the environment to propel themselves forward, or use hardware like the hand thruster or grappling magnet to navigate just as you would in deep space. Engage Threats or Explore Solving the mystery of the space station will also require the use of the ship’s maintenance tools and hardware — like bolt throwers, thrusters, rail guns, grappling magnet, and arc welders. For players that want to engage, they can take out the threats aboard Horus Station with the tools at hand. For players that only want to explore and solve puzzles there is “Explorer” mode that completely removes combat, leaving a much slower and more explorative version of our experience. The team at 3rd Eye Studios and I can’t wait to share more with you. For anyone that loves atmospheric, cinematic, and innovative experiences, Horus Station will be out later this year. Get ready to discover Horus Station and the secrets it holds. Przeczytaj cały wpis
  22. Adventure puzzle games (such as the point-and-click genre) have a long, proud history of offering players strange and unexpected challenges. If you remember Monkey Island, then you’ll know what I’m talking about! So, while designing The Fall Part 2: Unbound, we aspired to give players perspectives and challenges that they’ve never had in a game before. This article will cover a little bit about how we attempted to do that. As for whether or not we succeeded in that goal, you can decide for yourself! The Fall Part 2: Unbound is about boundaries. It follows an unshackled AI who invades and attempts to enlist the help of three robots who are very much still shackled by their own obsessions, rules, and hang-ups. This gave us an interesting starting point for designing unusual puzzles; it allowed us to craft weird challenges surrounding the personal quirks and errors in any given robot’s personality. For example, consider a posh, organized, meticulous butler, designed to objectively fulfill its routine to the letter: the perfect servant! The Butler will run its routine indefinitely, even after its masters are dead, and it’s stuck in a tiny cycle, without end, day after day, smearing lipstick on an old, mummified corpse. ​ To gain the Butler’s co-operation, you’ll have to find little ways of altering its cycle. Unfortunately, it refuses to deviate more than a few feet from its routine. You’ll have to skip through the stages of this routine until you find a way to alter it. Each section of gameplay in The Fall Part 2 is its own narrative set-piece, which fits into a larger story about boundaries, coercion, purpose, perspectives, and ideology. As the story progresses, so does the bizarre nature of its challenges. Take for example the following scene, where a self-obsessed robot known as TRAIN –er…pardon me…that’s “One”… has lost his identity. You’ll employ a perspective learned from another robot to restore him to some resemblance of sanity. Many more puzzles await you this February 13th, when The Fall Part 2: Unbound launches on PS4. I can’t wait to see how you enjoy it! Przeczytaj cały wpis

  24. Starting March 6, Operation Chimera is going to heat up (you know, because chimeras breathe fire) the competition for Rainbow Six Siege players on PlayStation 4. The first in a series of content updates for Year 3 of Rainbow Six Siege, Operation Chimera features two new Operators from French and Russian counter-terrorism units. Like the Operators before them, these new Operators will come with loadouts and special gadgets that make them uniquely suited for various tactical scenarios that can arise over the course of a Rainbow Six Siege match. Some of you may have noticed something different about this particular pair of Operators, which makes them stand out from their other CTU counterparts. That’s because they’re biohazard specialists, and for good reason: Operation Chimera not only includes these two Operators, but also a new cooperative event called Outbreak, in which these new Operators will join Smoke, Ying, Buck, Kapkan, Ash, Doc, Tachanka, Glaz, and the Recruit in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico to contain an extraterrestrial parasite in its quarantine zone, and prevent it from turning more of the locals into gruesome Apex monsters. “With Outbreak, we wanted to celebrate Rainbow Six Siege’s third birthday by introducing a big change from Operations we have released in the past,” says Alexandre Remy, Brand Director for Rainbow Six Siege. “We took the key ingredients and mechanics of Siege and placed them in a different context, designing a three-player co-op experience, with a surprising environment, to say the least…” Outbreak is a free four-week event that starts March 6, and a team of three Operators will be able to tackle it on two difficulty settings: Normal and Pandemic. Normal will be tough for players unless they use teamwork and communication to survive, but Pandemic will push any team to their limits – enemies will pack an extra punch, and friendly fire will be turned on. In either case, the Apex are relentless and will do everything to bust down walls, tear down your defenses, and invade your personal space with extreme prejudice as your team fights through three expansive maps designed for co-op. “We had a lot of fun building this,” Remy adds. “We can’t wait to see you all discover Outbreak in March.” Operation Chimera and Outbreak are just the beginning of Rainbow Six Siege’s Year 3 journey. The following Season in Year 3 will include two new Operators from Italy’s CTU, along with a new map located in that country. Two new Operators are also coming in Season Three (one from the UK, the other from the USA) along with a rework of an existing map, while later in the year, Season Four will come charging in with two Operators from Morocco and a new Morocco-based map. Season Pass owners will get seven-day early access to all new Operators along with exclusive cosmetic items, renown and alpha pack boosters, a 10% discount in the shop, and 600 R6 credits. And if you have yet to try Rainbow Six Siege and want to see what the fuss is about, we’ve got some good news: The Rainbow Six Siege Free Weekend begins February 15 at 5AM PT/8AM ET for PlayStation Plus subscribers. If you like what you see, you can continue your progress in the full version of the game after the Free Weekend has ended. The Rainbow Six Siege team has been able to create this content due to the support of millions of players, and they can’t wait for you to see what they have in store for Operation Chimera and the rest of Year 3.

  25. The beta for the PlayStation 4 system’s next major system software update 5.50 (codenamed KEIJI) rolls out today. If you signed up and were selected for the beta program, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to download and get started. Even if you are not in the beta program, we wanted to give you a sneak preview of features you can expect in this update. In 5.50, we’re introducing Play Time Management, Library UI updates, further enhancements to the Quick Menu, and much more. Play Time Management We’re introducing Play Time Management, which will allow family managers (and adult family members who are set as guardians) to manage PS4 playtime for child family members on family on PSN. Managing Playtime is easy; go to Settings > Family Management on your PS4, or log into your PlayStation account on your web browser from your PC or smartphone, to check and manage your child’s playtime each day. If needed, the family manager/guardians can apply playtime restrictions to make sure that the child is only playing for a set amount of time or within set playable hours. Notifications on PS4 will be sent to the child during gameplay so that he or she knows when they should save and quit. The family managers/guardians also have the option to add extra game time via their smartphone or PC. In addition, the family manager/guardians can choose whether or not to automatically log the child out of their PS4 once their playtime is over. Library UI Updates ‘This PS4’ and Name/Avatar tab Two new tabs are being added to Library to make it easier for you to see which apps you’ve installed and purchased. The ‘This PS4’ tab lists all the applications that are installed on the PS4 system, and the tab with your name/avatar lists all the apps that you purchased with your PSN ID. This feature also makes it easy to search and find games you’ve already purchased but have not yet installed. PS Plus tab This update also adds a new PS Plus tab to the Library, which clarifies what games you own from PS Plus’ Monthly Free Games. If your PS Plus membership is expired, a PS Plus icon with a lock will appear next to your game so you’ll know you cannot play the game until you’ve re-subscribed. Hide apps We’re adding a function that will allow you to hide certain applications under the ‘Purchased’ tab in the Library. In ‘Options,’ you can hide content including betas, trials or demos of games that you probably won’t be going back to. Quick Menu Enhancements If you ever want to quickly access specific friends in your custom list, you’ll be able to do so via the pulldown menu under the Friends tab in Quick Menu. You can also see who’s currently online. Whenever you’re listening to music on PS4, you’ll be able to access certain shortcuts from the Quick Menu. If you’re using Spotify on PlayStation Music, the ‘square’ button will serve as the shortcut for volume control. And when you’re on the Media Player or the USB Music Player, ‘triangle’ will work as the shortcut for play or pause, and the ‘square’ button as the volume control. Background Music on PS Now With Background Music on PlayStation Now, you’ll be able to listen to your favorite tracks while streaming a game on PS Now. Just keep in mind that, similar to when playing a game locally on PS4, background music may not always be available. Notifications Update This update will give you the ability to delete old notifications for better organization and management. Just go to Notifications and press the ‘triangle’ or ‘Options’ button to open up a menu that will allow you to select a single or multiple notifications you’d like to delete. Import Custom Wallpapers via USB Love customizing your PS4 Home Screen? Well, this new update will give you even more options. You can import your own images to PS4 from a USB stick and set it as your wallpaper. You can also zoom and crop your images so they look perfect on your dashboard. Just go to Settings > Themes > Select Theme > Custom > Select Image > USB Storage Device. Customize Tournaments Team Pages Following the 5.50 update, you’ll be able to customize your Tournaments team page with your own team logo or background that you can import from a USB stick. Represent your team by customizing your team page with something unique and original! To set your logo and background, head over to Events > Teams > select your team > Edit Team Profile. Supersampling Mode on PS4 Pro PS4 Pro users will see a new ‘supersampling mode’ under Settings, which enables those with HDTVs (i.e., 1080p or less) to enjoy an enhanced visual experience when playing some PS4 games. With supersampling mode, games that render to a higher resolution when connected to a 4K TV will downscale to match the HDTV – allowing PS4 Pro owners to leverage the benefits of an image clarity boost even if they don’t own a 4K TV. Certain games already have ‘supersampling’ benefits as part of their ‘PS4 Pro Enhanced’ feature set, but this new mode can enhance the experience for those games that don’t already have the feature. Because PS4 Pro’s added power and modes benefit different games in different ways, please note that certain games’ image clarity may not improve with this new feature. Przeczytaj cały wpis

He’s not alone; did you catch any of the other new Legends we teased in the trailer? This year we’re bringing back Road to The Show, Diamond Dynasty, Battle Royale, Conquest, and Franchise Mode, and will have a major gameplay engine tune up among other features. Baseball is a game of details. At its core there’s pitching, hitting, catching, throwing, and tagging. All of those areas of the game have received major development resources this year. Below are a few changes we’ve revealed in our trailer: Expansion of Road to the Show Dynamic crowds like Judge’s Chambers New unique home run celebrations Revamped hitting engine with improved physics Rewritten player tagging system Over 1,000 new gameplay animations More legends Some of these changes we get the most excited about are the unflashy ones under the hood, the ones that seem like little adjustments but can make huge strides in terms of authenticity. We’ve got a lot more to discuss — updates to major modes and a new feature the community’s been demanding for years — and over the next 60 days we’ll tell you all you need to know. Can you spot all the feature teases in the trailer? 2018 Twitch and GameStop Monday’s Schedule One of the most fulfilling moments in game development is when we get to show our faithful fans what we’ve been working on during the off season. Our goal is to make each year’s game the best baseball video game on the market.

We have a handful of streams planned before The Show 18 releases on March 23 for the First Pitch Weekend. The 2018 video blog and Twitch livestream schedule can be viewed below.

  27. Hello? Who’s there? Two years ago we had the privilege of bringing Risk of Rain to PlayStation platforms. Hundreds of thousands of players spent countless hours repeatedly dying and failing to leave the planet. Since then, we’ve been hard at work bringing our second game over to our new fans at Sony. Today, we’re happy to announce that Hopoo Games have partnered up again with Code Mystics to deliver you a violent experience on PS4 and PS Vita: Deadbolt. Deadbolt is an extremely challenging stealth-action hybrid taking place somewhere between life and death. You play as the reaper, tasked with a singular mission: to kill all undead. While the reaper has an impressive arsenal and skillset to kill the undead, he has one vulnerability — he dies in one shot… leaving you with no room for error. Each mission is designed to be completed in many different ways and support diverse playstyles. Want to go in loud? Blast through the buildings with your flashbang and shotgun. However, if stealth is your thing, suppressed weapons may be your new best friend. Completing missions will earn you souls that can be used to unlock weapons from Charon’s arsenal tailored to your specific playstyle, such as Crossbows, Scythes, or a Semi-Auto Shotgun. Deadbolt will release on both PS4 and PS Vita with cross-buy support on February 20, 2018. So get your revolver and lighter ready, and… Knock knock. Przeczytaj cały wpis
