Sony on Facing the Challenge in Lords of the Fallen on PlayStation 4

50°
9w ago - Sony Online Content Producer Rhys Sutheran outlined some of the challenges PS4 fans will face in Lords of the Fallen on PlayStation 4 today.

To quote: "Do you like challenging games?"

So begins my first step into the demonic realm of the Fallen God - chief antagonist in Thomasz Gop and CI Games' forthcoming fantasy RPG, Lords of the Fallen on PS4.

In answer to that - still bearing the scars of endless Dark Souls re-starts - yes, I do like a challenge. Thomasz's jovial reply isn't exactly encouraging. "That's good! But you're still gonna die... a lot."

He's certainly not wrong. As executive producer in the small creative team at Poland's CI Games, Thomasz's friendly demeanor hides the dark heart of the man responsible for the most brutal, punishing, yet immensely satisfying fantasy RPG to make its way to PlayStation 4 so far.

I sat down with Thomasz at Gamescom 2014 to get hands-on with Lords of the Fallen's "second dimension," an alternate realm that the game's protagonist - and prolific sinner - Harkin will journey back and forth from throughout his blood-soaked quest.

"It's an important point in the game," Thomasz says as I face the first of the sword-wielding brutes blocking my path. "Learning more about both realms guides the player towards...
 

H1Z1 Announced for PlayStation 4 by Sony Online Entertainment

10w ago - Today Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) officially announced H1Z1 is coming to the PlayStation 4 with details and some fresh video footage below!

To quote: "Though Sony Online Entertainment has stated multiple times already that they were planning on bringing it to the PlayStation 4. Today, the studio confirmed that that will indeed be the case.

John Smedley, President of Sony Online Entertainment, confirmed the news during yesterday’s SOE Live. Along with this announcement, they also held a Survival Challenge for attendees, showing off over an hour of fresh gameplay footage."

For those unaware: The game is a zombie apocalypse thriller set in the United States, in which players will have to interact with resources in the world to survive, build shelters and craft weapons.

It will be free-to-play through micropayments, though as of April 2014, the way the game will be monetized has not been clearly defined; a public discussion regarding the matter has been initiated by SOE's president on Reddit, alongside another regarding the inclusion of custom servers.

Gameplay emphasizes multi-player cooperation, trading, and team-building. In an interview with Adam Clegg from SOE it was made clear that unlike other zombie MMO games, the main focus will be on surviving...
 

CI Games: Lords of the Fallen on PS4: A Challenge Worth Facing

50°
26w ago - CI Games Executive Producer Tomasz Gop shared details today on CI Lords of the Fallen for PS4 who states it's a challenge worth facing!

To quote: I've seen my share of challenging games, and I loved a whole lot of them. And honestly speaking, I could never put up with so many people that quit playing them early.

But I've come around full circle to the point where I don't see their impatience as a shortcoming anymore. There's room for improvement in game design. And I believe that the team behind Lords of the Fallen on PS4 is after something that will narrow the gap between mainstream and core players. One bit at a time, that is.

First things first: we decided that if there's a main feature of Lords of the Fallen that will be complex and challenging, the rest should be more or less streamlined.

I'm not trying to say that we dumbed down anything. Take books written by Dan Brown or Harlan Coben, for example; they're not deprived of any intellectual value. They've been skillfully written for the mainstream audience, so... why not games?

Lords of the Fallen will try to tell a story without imposing it. You won't have to remember that the Fallen God's name is Adyr to face him. You won't have to memorize the names of crucial NPCs to follow their plots. But...

Online leaderboards lie at the heart of the Trials universe, and with Trials Fusion on PS4 we're taking that competitive experience one step further.
