Freedom Wars: New Details on PS Vita's Upcoming Action RPG

50°
16w ago - Sony Associate Project Manager Nick Accordino shared new details today on PS Vita's upcoming action RPG dubbed Freedom Wars alognside a PlayStation Vita trailer video below.

To quote: It's my distinct honor to bring you more information regarding one of the biggest PS Vita titles you'll see this year - Freedom Wars!

The futuristic action game launched last week in Japan, so we wanted to bring a few more details to our North American "Prisoners."

Those who were able to visit the PlayStation booth at E3 might have had a chance to play our multiplayer co-operative demo - thanks to all who stopped by!

I saw a lot of expert thorn-wielders soaring across the skies of the Panopticon, sawing Abductors apart and saving civilians to decrease their 1 million year sentence of penal servitude, and I must say, I was very impressed. However, the one recurring question I continue to hear from the community is - "How's the story?" Well, let's take a peek:





Freedom Wars promises intense co-op action with a captivating storyline. I'd like to leave you today with a message from our Japan Studio Producer, Junichi Yoshizawa. Yoshizawa-san has been tirelessly promoting Freedom Wars throughout Japan across the...
 

Reaper is Coming to PlayStation Vita as Free-to-Play Action RPG

50°
19w ago - Creative Director Luc Bernard announced today alongside a PlayStation Vita video trailer that Reaper is coming to PS Vita as a free-to-play action RPG!

To quote: Hello, I'm Luc Bernard. I'm the creative director, and art director, and - well - I look after many other roles on Reaper for PS Vita. Now this is my first time doing a post on Playstation.Blog, so it may sound a bit all over the place!

I don't know if anyone remembers, but years ago Reaper was announced back in 2010 for Playstation Portable. The title had to be put on hold for a while sadly, but now it's back. I'd say it's a great thing that I waited this long to resume development and show it to the world.

Reaper is a free-to-play title exclusive to PlayStation Vita. Personally the Vita is my favorite portable system for many reasons, which I don't think I need to go into since you Vita owners already know them.





Now let's talk about the gameplay. Reaper is an action RPG platformer, so you'll be leveling up, pulling off combos, destroying enemies, and all those kind of things.

But what makes it unique is the card system. Now don't worry, it's not like those mobile games that have cards where you can't do anything with them -...
 

Video: PS3 Action RPG Of Orcs and Men Hits PSN This Tuesday

50°
105w ago - Cyanide Producer Sylvain Sechi has shared a video trailer today announcing that the PS3 action RPG Of Orcs and Men is hitting PSN this Tuesday.

To quote: Hi PlayStation players, this is Sylvain from [Register or Login to view links]. I'm here to give you an introduction to the world of Greenskins and humans.

Of Orcs and Men is an action RPG, taking place in a dark and mature universe where Greenskins (orcs and goblins) have finally been defeated after a long war against the human kingdom.

The emperor has decided that, in order to prevent any further war against the Greenskins, it's best to just commit full-on genocide - unfortunately for you, you'll be controlling an orc and a goblin.

As the game starts, Arkail (the massive orc) and Styx (the stealthy goblin) are among the last of their race still alive. They are sent on a suicide mission - to reach the land of the humans and assassinate the Emperor, thus stopping the massacre and enslavement of greenskins.

Originally, while playing with the prototype, we enjoyed controlling Styx and Arkail individually, but even more, we liked the combinations they could have. We kept improving features to make them as unique as possible, but we also worked on tandem attacks for use in combat (like throwing...
 

Daggerdale PS3 Dev Diary: From D&D to Action-RPG on PSN

50°
167w ago - Bedlam Games Director of Production Tim Ernst has revealed details today from the Daggerdale PS3 development diary, covering the transition from Dungeons & Dragons to an Action-RPG on PlayStation Network.

To quote: When we first heard about the opportunity to not only work with Wizards of the Coast but on the Dungeons & Dragons property itself, well let's just say that the nerdgasm around the studio was at an all-time high.

We went with action-RPG as the genre based off of studio competency, market trends and general interest (basically, we thought it was cool and knew we can do a good job of it.) We knew that this the best fit for our first D&D game.

We wanted to make the game as accessible as possible, just let players play, harkening back to the 'old school' days of gaming. You should be able to play alone, call a buddy over and play locally or jump online and find a party of adventurers to group with.

There are definitely development issues with balancing and performance having a downloadable PSN game that is fully featured, but we felt strongly about the usability of the game. Besides, isn't that what D&D is about - freedom of play?

It was also important to us that the player has a persistent character without restrictions that he or she can continually...
