13w ago - Evolution Studios Community Manager Jamie Brayshaw is here with a new Driveclub PS4 demo video today which shows day / night transition below.
To quote: Check out the latest in the series of our #DRIVECLUB direct feed videos. This time, we showcase the dynamic shift in the time of day, set against the stunning Salar de Surire in Chile between 18:00 and 21:00.
13 things we'd like you to know about this video:
1. If you'd like to see a version of the video with significantly higher image quality than shown on YouTube (and a closer representation of how the game looks on PS4), you'll be able to download the 1080p video online soon.
2. The time of day is accelerated by x60, which is why the video covers from 6pm - 9pm in Chile in just three laps. Accelerating the speed of time is something you can choose to adjust before you race and it's also why the sunlight disappears so quickly at 1:58.
3. Design Director Paul Rustchynksy is the driver. He's using a Thrustmaster "T80 DRIVECLUB Edition" wheel, which explains why his last lap (in first person racing view) is the fastest.
4. The video was captured in one take from a version of the game still in development. Optimisations to the visual quality of the game are made every...
17w ago - Digital Dreams Level Designer Roy van de Mortel shared some concept art and details today on both infographics and input morphing in Metrico on PS Vita below.
To quote: It has been a while since we announced Metrico, so we are very excited to finally be able to share some more insights into the development and current state of Metrico.
We have been working very hard the last couple of months to make sure we now have a playable version, so people can experience what Metrico is about for the first time.
We announced Metrico at GDC San Francisco back in March with an announcement teaser, which was well received. But we knew that the next time we showed something to the press and you guys, we obviously would have to show more than the abstract video, aimed at introducing the game.
Metrico is a mysterious world, so we decided to keep it a bit vague with the teaser. We have a lot more to show since last March, so we'd like to take a moment and explain what type of a game Metrico is.
In Metrico the player needs to traverse the game world, which is built from all sorts of infographics, like bar diagrams, pie charts, line graphs, etc. These infographics constantly change based on your actions,...
26w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Nik Schmidt posted up a fresh Watch_Dogs PlayStation 4 walkthrough demo video from E3 2013 today for PS4 fans below!
To quote: In this most recent Watch_Dogs gameplay demo, we witnessed the wide variety of tools that Aiden has in his arsenal, all expressed through gameplay.
Whether it be by driving in a stealthily way to try and evade assailants, by assisting a friend in escaping a sticky situation, or by blacking out parts of the city to give him tactical advantage, we were able to see all the agency we'll have while exploring the great city of Chicago.
Now, we've seen how Aiden lends a helping hand to a friend, but who's helping him? Who's helping you, the player, when the odds seemed to have been tipped against you? That's where it becomes interesting.
There's yet another layer of connectivity that will be available to you in Watch_Dogs: Co-op on mobile devices. When you're calling for help, you are sending a request to friends who are connected to the Watch_Dogs universe through their mobile devices.
When that request is accepted, a co-op experience starts and the goal for the two players is to survive from the police by escaping their pursuit. This is just another way Watch_Dogs brings you the full, hyper-connected experience.
27w ago - Digital Extremes Project Lead Steve Sinclair posted up a demo video today spotlighting Press X to Ninja: Warframe on PS4 for PlayStation 4 fans below.
To quote: Do you like Ninjas? What if they were in space? What if you could slash enemies, blast them with guns and obliterate them with crazy exo-armor powers? Would you like to level-up, build a Space Dojo with your friends and hang out, dueling each other and trading wall-running stories?
Good news! Warframe is your ticket to all of that and its coming to PlayStation 4, for free, at launch! Not only that... we'll be showing the world Warframe on PS4 next week at E3 (gulping Tums as we speak)!
Our team has been polishing the demo and cramming in as much as we can to 'wow' everyone who gets there hands on it at E3!
On Friday we showed the rest of our development studio Warframe on PS4 for the first time and the reaction was unanimous - 1080p Warframe is smooth and beautiful! Like kids with new toys, playing with the PS4's toolbox of goodies has our minds spinning with design ideas for Warframe...
I love the DualShock 4. The triggers feel awesome and the touch pad is a sweet addition. Right now, we're using the touch pad to activate your crazy Warframe powers on the run with a flick of your thumb or finger....
