Hands-on with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on PlayStation 4

50°
1d ago - Sony Online Content Producer Rhys Sutheran went hands-on today with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on PlayStation 4.

To quote: Talion - Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor's central character - is a man holding a grudge , not to mention a very large sword. Having had his family murdered by Sauron's armies, seeking vengeance on those who wronged him is set to become the driving force behind Monolith Games' forthcoming Lord of the Rings spin-off when it launches on 30th September 2014 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

In preparation, we got our hands on an early build of the game to put it through its paces. Here are just a few of the ways we found that Talion can wreak his revenge...

Choose your target

As Talion enters a new area, he can survey the land for Sauron's armies and check out which of his captains control the various sections of the map. If he's encountered one of them before - or managed to wring vital information from their spineless foot soldiers - he can check out their strengths and weaknesses, see where they can usually be found and start planning his attack.

Dominate the weak

In the thick of battle, Talion can grab a weakened enemy and use his wraith powers to dominate them, turning them to fight alongside the outnumbered...
 

New to PlayStation Store: CounterSpy, Reaper of Souls and More

50°
3d ago - Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store team is here with this weeks European PSN content updates below, as follows:

First up, get sneaky in CounterSpy available for Vita, PS4 and PS3 today. The moon is in danger of being nuked so naturally it is up you as a C.O.U.N.T.E.R agent to put a stop to things whilst showing off your espionage skills.

Following CounterSpy is Diablo III: Reaper of Souls The Ultimate Evil Edition, containing both Diablo III and the Reaper of Souls expansion set, together in one definitive volume.

Rise as one of humanity's last defenders - crusader, barbarian, witch doctor, demon hunter, monk, or wizard - and collect legendary loot while mastering devastating new powers and abilities.

Continuing a strong week is an all new Vita exclusive based on the anime (in turn based on the novel) is Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment. Set in an MMO-like world, SAO is an RPG that offers players solid gameplay where combo attacks, execution speed and knowledge of the opponent will be mandatory to survive.

To round off the week there's a list of Rockstar titles on discount and the Summer Sale is also winding down in its final week.

50°
2w ago - Monolith Productions Community Manager Andy Salisbury revealed today at Gamescom 2014 the exclusive PlayStation pre-order extras for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.

To quote: Mordor is a treacherous land. It has no shortage of bloodthirsty warriors waiting to take their shot at you, and for those of you that pre-order Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor for PlayStation, some of the greatest champions of the Dark Lord's legions will be unleashed.

Today we're extremely proud to announce that in addition to The Dark Ranger (which includes the Dark Ranger character skin, and the Test of Power Challenge Mode), you'll get the PlayStation Legion Edition missions when you pre-order Shadow of Mordor on PlayStation 4, starting today.





In these exclusive missions, you'll go head-to-head with the deadly Blood Hunters, and the fearsome Flesh Burners, two of the most savage Warbands in all of Mordor (and two groups of hunters determined to personally bring your head to Sauron).

The Blood Hunters are master assassins, dispatched at high value targets of the Dark Lord. They travel in packs, and can smell your blood on the air. Hide from them if you choose, but they will find you. Should you eliminate them you'll earn the...
 

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter Brings Occult Mystery to PS4

2w ago - The Astronauts founder Adrian Chmierlarz announced today at Gamescom 2014 that The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is bringing Occult Mystery to PS4!

To quote: Hi! We are [Register or Login to view links], an eight-person team founded by the guys who, years ago, also founded People Can Fly, creators of Painkiller and [Register or Login to view links].

However, the game we are making right now could not be more different from what we've made in the past.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is a story-driven mystery game that focuses entirely on exploration and discovery, featuring no combat or explosions of any kind. If our game leaves any scars, you won't be able to see them.

You play the game as Paul Prospero, an occult-minded detective who receives a disturbing letter from Ethan Carter. Realizing the boy is in grave danger, Paul arrives at Ethan's home of Red Creek Valley, where things turn out to be even worse than he imagined. Ethan has vanished in the wake of a brutal murder, which Paul quickly discerns might not be the only murder to investigate.

As I hope you can see from this short description, we're trying to mix pulp and horror into one cohesive experience. And...
