DriveClub PS4 Could Be Most Realistic Sounding Racing Game Ever

50°
25w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton proclaimed today that DriveClub on PS4 could be the most realistic sounding racing game ever!

To quote: If you've been keeping track of our recent DRIVECLUB videos - in particular the 4TheSense clip above - you should hopefully have twigged that developer Evolution Studios is hell-bent on delivering the most technically sophisticated console driving game on the market.

Its visuals and gameplay systems obviously play a huge part in achieving that goal, but there's another, less-trumpeted area in which the team are achieving some extraordinary things: audio.

Squirreled away in a corner of the sprawling Evolution complex outside Runcorn in the north of England, Audio Manager Alan McDermott and his team have been hard at work building an enormous library of sound effects for the forthcoming PS4 racer. And unlike most games in the genre, every single one of them is 100% bespoke.

"We did initially look and see if we could buy samples in, and approached manufacturers," McDermott tells me. "But it just wasn't good enough for us to do what we wanted to do."

Instead, his team has spent the last two and a half year travelling the globe painstakingly recording the sounds of every...
 

Get the Most Out of Multiplayer in Final Fantasy XIV on PS4

50°
38w ago - Square Enix Community Project Manager Hergen Thaens detailed how to get the most out of PS4 multiplayer in Final Fantasy XIV on PlayStation 4 today.

To quote: For the most part, players can explore the world of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn at their own leisure. But what would an MMO be without some group content? In this blog post, we'll introduce you to the numerous activities that can only be mastered in groups of four to 24.

The realm of Eorzea, with its three city-states, is far-reaching. It has many hidden corners and crevices in which the wicked can find a welcome foothold. Be it the manor of a lady, so struck with vanity that she exchanged sanity for it, or an abandoned mine overrun with beastmen - adventurers are in constant demand, and there's always something to do.

Throughout the game, adventurers will also come across the so-called Primals. How these god-like beings are called into the realm is an important part of the storyline, so we won't give too much away.

The best known example of the sheer destructiveness of the Primals was the coming of the Seventh Umbral Era, brought forth by the elder primal Bahamut, who was freed from his prison in the lesser moon Dalamud. A single, massive battle with Bahamut reshaped the face of Eorzea forever. What happened...

Rain: The Story Behind 2013's Most Intriguing PSN Release

100°
76w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton shared details today on the Rain: the story behind 2013's most intriguing PSN release below.

To quote: Hopefully you found the time last week to take a look at the haunting new trailer for Rain - the new adventure game from Japan Studio heading to PlayStation 3 later this year.

It's shaping up to be one of the most intriguing PSN titles of the year, channeling the same sense of freewheeling creativity that made Journey, The Unfinished Swan and Tokyo Jungle such stand-out experiences.

The setup is simple - you play as a lone boy who finds himself alone in a mysterious rain-soaked city. The twist? He's completely invisible, except for the outline of the precipitation running off his body.

You'll guide him through this strange world as he goes in pursuit of a girl who's seemingly suffering the exact same predicament, while also trying to evade malevolent hostile forces.

I sat down with the game's producer Noriko Umemura when she was in London last week and dug a little deeper into this fascinating title.

PlayStation.Blog: Rain has one of the more unusual set-ups in recent memory. Where did the idea come from?

Noriko Umemura: When we gathered together, we had one thing in common - we wanted...
