Until Dawn's 5-Step Formula for Successful Scares on PlayStation 4

50°
2w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton returns today with Until Dawn's 5-step formula for successful scares on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Admission: I'm a bona-fide horror nut. I love it. Can't get enough. You name it, I'll watch it: past-their-sell-by-date franchise sequels, grotty Eastern European video nasties, creepy found-footage indies, cliche-ridden teen slashers, and everything in between.

So, PS4-exclusive interactive horror [Register or Login to view links] is right up my alley.

Duly, last month I sat down with Jez Harris from developer Supermassive Games to pick his brains about the science of scaring poor innocent folk like you and I. He happily obliged, talking me through a few of the strategies the Guildford-based studio is employing to ensure you'll need to keep a clean change of underwear close at hand when the game hits the shelves later this year.

1. Bring in the experts

"We have Larry Fassenden and Graham Reznick as our script writers," explains Jez. "They are horror encyclopaedias in human form and have worked on all sorts of acclaimed horror movies, like The Innkeepers and Stakeland."

He's not wrong - these two know what they're...
 

Plex App is Now Available for PlayStation 3 and PS4 Platforms, Details

550°
6w ago - Today the Plex application is officially released for PlayStation 3 and PS4 console platforms, although it currently is only available through Sony's European and Asian PSN Stores with more details below.

To quote: Plex: Now on Sega Genesis! Just Kidding, PS3 and PS4

Just over two months ago, we launched Plex for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 with great fanfare and a bevy of Barkley photos. And much rejoicing.

The very next day, [Register or Login to view links] (presumably his dad worked for Texas Instruments) created a feature request in the [Register or Login to view links] member forum asking for a Plex app for the PlayStation 4. Since then, his request has been voted on almost one thousand times, and rocketed to become the number one request. Ever.

We noticed this meteoric rise just a week ago, and - jolted out of our usual slack-jawed complacency - we set ourselves up with some intravenous caffeine drips and coded for three days straight. In less time than it took to create, well, the Universe, we had the app running on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, so we took the rest of the week off and played a bunch of hacky sack.

OK, in all honesty, it did take us a bit longer than that. Like, we actually...
 

Video: Final Horizon Out Tomorrow on PS4 and PS Vita Platforms

8w ago - Eiconic Games Art and Creative Director Simon Credland shared a video today confirming that Final Horizon arrives tomorrow on PS4 and PS Vita platforms!

Below are the details, to quote: This is Si at indie games developer Eiconic Games in the UK. We're very proud to announce that Final Horizon is launching on PS Vita and PS4 tomorrow, December 2nd.





Building on the success of our arcade action game Total Recoil we wanted to make a Tower Defence game our own way, with our own blend of action and strategy.

We've really levelled things up for this game. The killstreaks are crazier, the enemies are smarter, the weapons are cooler and we're really happy with the result.

We have spent a lot of time developing, testing and refining the enemy AI so it feels like alien behaviour. The Swarm will rush forward in spider-legged tanks and launch rockets from distance in their Skorpion heavy assault vehicles.

They'll swoop in with airbourne Hornets and Mecha-Wasps that will flock together for maximum impact. Then you meet the Scarab. The Scarab tunnels underground and breaks the surface behind your defences. You will really need to learn and adapt to complete the game.

We would like...
 

Video: Puzzle Platformer Klaus Coming to PS4 and PlayStation Vita

50°
11w ago - Game Designer Victor Velasco shared a trailer video today spotlighting Puzzle Platformer Klaus coming to PS4 and PlayStation Vita platforms below.

To quote: Klaus is a narrative driven, 2D puzzle-platformer that provides a non linear, self-aware experience while striving towards a fluid gameplay that allows the player to control two characters as well as the environment.

Together, Klaus will be an immersive gameplay experience on PS4 and PS Vita in the second quarter of 2015.





Klaus wakes up in a mechanical prison with complete amnesia: he doesn't remember who he is or how he got there. His only clue is the word KLAUS tattooed on his arm.

This mystery will develop through the narrative, as Klaus meets other characters (both friendly and hostile) and discovers clues littered throughout the environment. Through exploration, the player will piece together his past and the realities of the enigmatic world he finds himself stuck in.

Along the way, Klaus will meet K1, a friendly brute damaged by prolonged imprisonment. With Klaus' hacking ability, and K1′s propensity to smash, our two protagonists will have to work together to reach the end of their existential journey.
