10w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here today spotlighting the four-player carnage in Helldivers on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms below.

To quote: To quote: With a game of [Register or Login to view links] going, shouts, curses, and laughter are never far behind. Arrowhead's top-down shooter is coming to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita this Summer, bolstered by brutally difficult missions and gratifying multiplayer design.

This is a game about outfitting an elite squad, dropping into procedurally-generated battlefields, and fighting to survive. The high level of challenge and the "always-on" friendly fire make victory all the sweeter.

But at a PlayStation event last week, I had more time to watch groups of four players (including Arrowhead's own Designer Patrik Lasota) tackle the alien menace together. The results showcase just how smartly Helldivers has been put together, and how players must, must, work as a team.

For those that missed our original hands-on of Helldivers, the basics are easy to grasp for any passing fan of twin-stick shooters. Move with one stick, aim with the other. Each soldier in the squad had a default...
 

Sony Goes Hands-on with Helldivers PS4 on PlayStation 4

23w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Helldivers PS4 on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Helldivers marries real-life laughter and video game death better than it should. Within ten minutes of top-down mayhem, my team and I were mauled by a wild praying mantis, trampled by beetles, evaporated by ordinance, and crushed by our own orbital supply pod. And we couldn't stop laughing along the way.

This absurdly entertaining co-op shooter is coming to PS3, PS4, and PS Vita later this year, courtesy of Swedish developer Arrowhead Games. A brutally difficult experience spritzed with Starship Troopers aesthetics, Helldivers reminds us that some of the best multiplayer still emerges from couch co-op. And a countless array of untimely deaths.

Helldivers establishes its dystopian future with a sly wink. It's just serious enough to keep players on the battlefield, but only just. The inhabitants of Super Earth - under a "managed democracy" - face a three-pronged attack against a host of dangerous enemies. Deadly bug hordes included.

As a Helldiver, players will drop into procedurally-generated environments in order to drive back the alien menace. Their objectives include destroying bug nests, securing contested zones, and even protecting supply...

Video: A Deeper Dive Into Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag on PS3

42w ago - Sony Social Media and Community Manager Roberto Kusabbi posted up a new video today which gives fans a deeper dive into the world of Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag on PS3.

To quote: Hello! It's been awhile. How are we all? Today I wanted to share with you a short film we put together at an Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag event we had special access to last month, including some more information on exclusive PlayStation content for the game.

I was lucky enough to enjoy a good stint of gameplay on PS4, including multiplayer, and it didn't disappoint. With the added graphical detail on PS4, the single player story mode is totally immersive, offering a huge open pirate world for you to plunder.





What I found most impressive was how the story links into actual historical events, delving deep into real pirate culture and folklore. And the online play? So. Much. Fun.





Check out the video for a closer look, and stay tuned - we'll have a few more clips coming your way in the next few weeks too, including something slightly different!

49w ago - Arrowhead Game Studios CEO and Game Director Johan Pilestedt posted up a video today at Gamescom 2013 announcing that Helldivers is coming to PS4, PS3 and PlayStation Vita in 2014.

To quote: You may know of Arrowhead Game Studios from our previous games like Magicka and today we're excited to announce that we've teamed up with Sony Computer Entertainment and Foster City Studios to create our next game!

So, for all of you out there, both new fans and old, I give you Helldivers. Built for both single-player campaigns and up to four player co-op missions, Helldivers is a top-down shooter set in a satirical and dystopian future where mankind is ruled by a managed democracy.

Of course, this world also happens to be in a perpetual war against three alien species, one of which we revealed in our Gamescom trailer!





As part of the elite unit called the Helldivers, you choose your deployment zone and dive into battle on procedurally-generated battlefields. Once there, utilize overpowered weapons and Stratagems to defeat the enemies of mankind.

Working together as a team will be vital, whether calling in strikes or placing weapons, each action must be totally synchronized to achieve objectives....
