4w ago - Senior Creative Director DCUO Jens Andersen is here with answers to some PS4 fan questions on DC Universe Online for PlayStation 4 below.
To quote: Hello, everyone. My name is Jens Andersen, aka @Spytle, and I'm the Senior Creative Director on DC Universe Online. When PlayStation first put a callout for DCUO PS4 questions on Twitter, I was excited to see them roll in; it was hard to keep myself from answering them right away, but I managed to restrain myself.
Thanks to everyone that submitted questions - it's great to see so much interest in DC Universe Online on PS4. I'm excited to finally start answering them, so without further adieu, let's get started.
@Arkham_InmateJH: What exactly is changing with DC Universe Online? (source)
Jens Andersen: There are a ton of things changing in DCUO right around the time of the PS4 launch - many of these will be available on all platforms.
First of all, players will see the amazing power of PS4 popping off the screen thanks to the art enhancements we made to the PS3 assets. The game looks and runs amazingly smooth - performance has really improved. We're targeting 1080p at 60 frames per second.
4w ago - HumaNature Studios Founder Greg Johnson made available a video today on discovering humanity in Doki-Doki Universe which arrives this December.
To quote: Greetings fellow humans! I'm Greg Johnson (creator of Toejam and Earl) and I run HumaNature Studios, the small Northern Ca. studio that has been busy building Doki-Doki Universe for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. I hope you'll enjoy seeing the trailer and pretty soon, our game.
I'm here today to talk a bit about how we're creating Doki Doki Universe, which will be available in December 2013 for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita.
In Doki-Doki Universe you play the role of a forlorn little robot named Model QT377665 (QT3 for short). You have been abandoned by your human family and are about to get scrapped by the factory that made you, unless you can prove that you're able to learn more about what it means to be human.
On your journey to become more human, you travel across planets and meet all sorts of crazy characters to help solve their problems. You can even take fun personality quizzes where the doctor will evaluate your progress. Along the way, we hope you find something out about yourself too.
13w ago - DC Universe Online Executive Producer Larry Liberty announced that Sons of Trigon DLC is officially launching today on PSN!
Below are the details, to quote: Hello PlayStation fans. Starting today, our latest DLC pack - Sons of Trigon - will go live!
For this eighth DLC, we've packed in brand new Celestial Powers, new solo and group adventures, and an amazing looking new open zone: the Gotham Wastelands.
Sons of Trigon picks up where the "Sins of the Father" storyline from the core game left off, with the demon lord Trigon ready to break free of his bonds, intent on destroying Earth. The influence of this powerful villain has already been felt across the world of DC Universe Online, and it will be up to you to either stop it or use it to your advantage.
Circe and Brother Blood were successful in releasing Trigon from his dimension, but the Sentinels of Magic were ready. They performed a counter-hex, placing a protective barrier around our realm.
The barrier trapped Trigon between his world and ours, resulting in the creation of an in-between dimension - the Gotham Wastelands a version of Gotham City that is rapidly approaching Hell. Players will see familiar Gotham landmarks, such as the Cathedral and Knightsdome, twisted,...
25w ago - HumaNature Studios Founder Greg Johnson shared a video today that offers a first look at Doki-Doki Universe in action on the PlayStation 4 / PS4 console below.
To quote: Hi. I'm Greg, the designer of Sony's new game Doki-Doki Universe and I run a small game studio called HumaNature Studios. In years past, I created a game you may be familiar with, called ToeJam and Earl.
Announced just last month, Doki-Doki Universe is a game about humanity and emotional expression. It's sweet and quirky and hopefully a little thought provoking.
If you're interested in a change of pace, you may find it interesting. We hope so, anyway. To give you a better idea for how the game plays, we've put together this fun trailer for you:
Doki-Doki Universe is more than a game. It's a cross-platform ecosystem built around a unique universe of personal discovery. And as you can see in the trailer, the universe you explore is vibrant, fun and playful.
There are tons of different places to explore, characters to meet, objects to collect and conjure up, and there are even fun reflective quizzes to take.
However, the most important thing you should take away is that Doki-Doki Universe is about creating an emotionally engaging experience that will help you learn about yourself.
