Sony Goes Hands-on with Evolve on PS4: Meet the Hunters

50°
9w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Evolve on PS4 introducing PlayStation 4 fans to the hunters below.

To quote: Four hunters push through the thick of the jungle, muttering warnings and checking their Sound Spikes for activity. The beast has been feeding, and the burst cocoon littering the dark jungle floor betrays the monster's recent evolution.

As the hunters trace the monster's footprints, it watches them from above, snarling and seething and ready to strike. High tension moments like these are often relegated to cutscenes in video games. But in Evolve, it's all just part of the game.

Developed by the team at Turtle Rock Studios (Left 4 Dead), Evolve is scheduled to launch later this year on PS4. The developers brought an early test build of Evolve to San Francisco to show off their latest creation. Much more than just a multiplayer shooter, Evolve's high-tension, asymmetrical design promises an experience quite unlike anything that's come before it.

Evolve is founded on the fun and thrill of the boss battle. In most games, boss battles are visually enthralling moments where players study patterns and exploit them to survive. But in Evolve, that dynamic has shifted. Four players work cooperatively as hunters to take down a fifth player...
 

Shuttle Quest 2000: R-Type Meets Monster Hunter on PS Mobile

50°
29w ago - TACSgames developer Thomas Hopper explained to fans today that Shuttle Quest 2000 is essentially R-Type meets Monster Hunter on PlayStation Mobile.

To quote: Over the last year, I have been working hard to bring fun games to PlayStation Mobile. I have created many titles to fit the many tastes of mobile gamers. My most recent game, Shuttle Quest 2000, is sort of a cross between and R-Type and Monster Hunter.

Become humanity's best shuttle pilot as you confront the evil alien forces of General Xarod. You'll meet many characters on your adventure, including humans, aliens, a pirate robot shop keeper and a very grumpy door.

To make your shuttle more combat-effective, you'll embark on quests, which will give you more resources and money to buy or craft new weapons, items, and drones. Defeating enemy megaships will alert your adversaries and make your job harder, but by conquering them, you will unlock more resources and weapons.

There are tons of different combinations of weapons and drones that you can use to make your shuttle a unique fighting machine.

I'm passionate about classic gaming, so I've done my best to make the game as authentic as possible with retro-accurate graphics, visual effects, chip tune music and sound effects. I wanted to make the space station...

29w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani shared a video today introducing the cast of Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag which is coming to both PS3 and PS4 platforms.

To quote: We're introducing a full crew of rowdy yet realistic buccaneers, privateers and straight-up pirates in Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, so we figured you would benefit from a little face-time with the roughest of them.

And who better to cry them out for you than Captain Edward Kenway himself, played by the talented Matt Ryan.

Widely renowned for his incredible charisma and mercurial temper, Captain Edward Kenway is joined by his Quartermaster and closest ally Adewale (played by Tristan D. Lalla.

The pair will quickly find themselves thrown in with the likes of the wiley and terrifying Edward "Blackbeard" Thatch, the gentlemanly yet morally grey Benjamin Hornigold and the downright jolly Stede Bonnet.




Meanwhile, the dauntless privateer Woodes Rogers seeks to eliminate the encroaching pirate threat festering in Nassau. But first, he'll have to contend with the wicked and merciless cut-throat Charles Vane (played by Ralph...

35w ago - Bethesda Softworks Global Community Lead Matt Grandstaff invites fans to meet the Hatters and Eels in Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches today with a fresh video trailer below.

To quote: This week on PSN, the story of Daud - the legendary assassin behind the death of Dunwall's beloved Empress, Jessamine Kaldwin - concludes in Dishonored's final add-on: The Brigmore Witches.

Having been betrayed by your top lieutenant, Billie Lurk, in The Knife of Dunwall, you'll need to rely on two rival gangs - the Dead Eels and the Hatters - in order to make your way to Brigmore Mansion to confront The Brigmore Witches' main antagonist, Delilah.

To set the stage, we're giving you a first look at two in-game journals providing background on the rift between the Dead Eels and The Hatters. The groups are led by Lizzy Stride and Mortimer Hat (aka Geezer), respectively.

Excerpt from a City Watch River Patrol Report

William Cotter, captain of the merchant vessel, The Windover, reports that on the 23rd day of the Month of Nets his vessel was waylaid by the Dead Eels, a gang of notorious criminals known for acts of river piracy, wanton destruction, and smuggling. Prior to the blockade, the Windover was bound for Dunwall bearing medicinal supplies, food, and material goods from...
 

Video: Meet Mark Cerny: PS4 System Architect and Knack Creator

50°
42w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton posted up a video today introducing PlayStation 4 fans to Mark Cerny, a PS4 System Architect, Knack creator and one of the busiest men in gaming!

He also discussed the "Road to the PS4" live at Gamelab 2013 with a video HERE for those interested.

To quote: For most mortals, designing a brand new cutting edge gaming system from the ground up would be a full time job, and then some.

However, for none-more-diligent PS4 system architect Mark Cerny, that wasn't quite enough responsibility, so he set about crafting a launch title for the new platform at the same time.

Said title, Knack, is a lovely counterpoint to the bulging biceps of Killzone: Shadow Fall and the steely realism of #DRIVECLUB.

Harking back to classic action platformers of yore, such as Spyro the Dragon, Crash Bandicoot, Jak & Daxter and so on, it's a bold, bright and hugely enjoyable romp that injects the PS4 launch line-up with a pleasing splash of color.

The day after the physical form of PS4 was finally unveiled at E3, I sat down with the hardest working man in the business to find out more about his twin endeavors.
