Naughty Dog: How The Last of Us Remastered Enhances Multiplayer

50°
3d ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli shared details today on how The Last of Us Remastered enhances multiplayer on the PlayStation 4 console.

Below are the details, as follows: The Last of Us Remastered launches next week in North America.

We'll be revealing some upcoming DLC and streaming a basic introduction to the multiplayer mode, Factions, live later this week over on our Twitch channel. We plan to show off the new features for PS4 as well as give our primer for those not familiar with the mode on Thursday, July 24th at 11:30 AM Pacific and 5:30 PM Pacific.

If you can't watch the Twitch stream, we asked Erin Daly, Lead Multiplayer Designer, and Quentin Cobb, Game Designer, a couple of questions about Factions multiplayer mode in the game. If you're new to the world of Factions, this is a great primer.

If you're a hardened survivor with a clan that never diminishes, read on to hear about some exciting developments we were able to make in The Last of Us Remastered.

Q: Why is the multiplayer mode called Factions?

Quentin Cobb: We wanted the online multiplayer to focus on the larger story of the player representing a faction (Fireflies or Hunters) and rebuilding their own clan in that faction. This grounds the online matches...
 

The Talos Principle on PS4: When Story Meets Puzzle

50°
3w ago - Writer Tom Jubert outlines When Story Meets Puzzle in The Talos Principle on PS4 today with details below, to quote:

Hello. I'm Tom Jubert, one of the writers on The Talos Principle for PS4, and I'm here to tell you a bit about the game because the other guys are lazy busy with finishing it.

Announced during the PlayStation press conference at E3 in June, The Talos Principle is a first-person philosophical puzzler from Croteam, the guys behind the Serious Sam games. It's a bit atmospheric, a bit sci-fi, and a proper challenge if you're looking for one.

The guys brought myself and Jonas Kyratzes on as writers around 9 months ago to deliver on their aspirations for the atmosphere and story. In The Talos Principle, you inhabit a robot body in a digital recreation of the ancient world, and explore at the behest of an omnipresent voice in the sky.

We're keeping our cards close to our chest on this one, but you could say Philip K. Dick's oeuvre is a close match for our general motif. We hope there's loads here to dig into and piece together if you're so minded, but equally if you're just here for the puzzles it won't get in your way.

About those puzzles. The concept has its roots in experimental puzzle mechanics developed for Serious Sam 4, and shares with that game...

20w ago - Guerrilla Games Senior Online Producer Samrat Sharma announced that new Killzone Shadow Fall PlayStation 4 Multiplayer DLC and maps are incoming with details below!

To quote: We are very excited to announce the details of Killzone Shadow Fall's first multiplayer expansion: The Insurgent Pack.

The expansion pack is full of exciting new features for multiplayer including a brand new Character Class, 3 new abilities, 3 new weapons and 2 new game modes.

The Helghast government has been secretly funding The Black Hand, the operatives of which have been infiltrating Vekta City. The VSA has also started a programme that sends saboteurs disguised as refugees to the Helghast side of the wall. These insurgents are playable for the first time in the brand new Insurgent Expansion, which includes:

• The Insurgent - a brand new class with two unique abilities: Hack and Steal.

The insurgent starts with just a pistol and his wits about him. As vulnerable as he is, he can slowly build up his arsenal in the game by using [Steal] to steal weapons and abilities from downed enemies, which enables him to use those weapons throughout the game, even if he falls in combat. By Using [Hack] he can change enemy ground automata into friendlies, turning the tide of battle quite swiftly.
