50°
3w ago - Sony Content Producer Tom Wallis detailed how the World Cup influenced FIFA 15 on PS4 today for PlayStation 4 fans below.

To quote: "We picked the winner of the Brazil World Cup with our simulation."

It's a lofty claim to make, but one that Nick Channon, Senior Producer on [Register or Login to view links], doesn't make lightly.

"We do a simulation every year and we actually, before the tournament, picked Germany. I'm not sure too many people agreed with us. A lot of people were looking at Argentina or Brazil as the favorites."

When talking to Nick backstage at Gamescom this year, talk inevitably kept returning to this summer's footballing extravaganza over in Brazil and perhaps unsurprisingly, it becomes clear that the tournament had an impact on how the final game is turning out.

One area in particular - goalkeepers - came in for special attention as the tournament wound to its conclusion.

"It felt for a lot of the World Cup that the standout position was the goalkeeper," explains Nick.

"Tim Howard from the USA had the record for the most saves in a game. That was something we didn't see coming - just how the World Cup became a story of the...

Sony on How Real-life Conflict Inspired Far Cry 4 for PlayStation 4

4w ago - Sony's Tom Wallis revealed details today on how real-life conflict inspired Far Cry 4 for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 platforms.

To quote: [Register or Login to view links] is the upcoming first-person shooter from developer Ubisoft Montreal.

Set in the fictional Himalayan country of Kyrat, this nation torn apart by war draws heavily from real-world locations to make the game feel authentic.

We caught up with Mark Thompson, narrative director, and Alex Hutchinson, creative director, to find out how visiting Nepal to meet people who actually fought in the civil war helped to inspire the development of Far Cry 4.

"One of the first things we did was to write down a list of different animals to include in the game," Mark told us when we met up with the team at Ubisoft recently in Montreal.

"We also made a list of environment features we wanted. From that we looked at locations where the two would make sense, and we came to the Himalayas. We needed to find somewhere that had a history of conflict - somewhere that could be politically unstable - the kind of place that you would go to that was on the edge of the map. Places that are referred to as 'failed states.'"

Bamtang Games: Kilka Card Gods on PS Vita: The Peruvian Influence

50°
12w ago - Bamtang Games Creative Director Adam Johnston detailed the Peruvian influence in Kilka Card Gods on PS Vita below today.

To quote: Have you had a chance to play Kilka Card Gods yet? The latest game from our studio, Bamtang Games, was released on June 10th for PS Vita - the first ever self-published launch by a Latin American game development studio on the PlayStation platform.

Needless to say, we're all excited here! Kilka Card Gods is the result of several years of development efforts, and we're extremely happy that one of our games is paving the way for more games developed in Peru and Latin America to be released for PlayStation.

We're especially proud about Kilka Card Gods because the game has been an opportunity for us to portray many elements from Peruvian culture. There are few games that have included Peru as part of their narrative, and in most cases, developers haven't paid much attention to the way Peru and its culture were presented in their games.

With Kilka, we set out to change that and show that things could be done differently - that the richness of Peruvian culture could be accurately and elegantly captured in a way that borrows from tradition while at the same time crafting new stories and characters that players could fall in love with.

Video: Air Conflicts: Vietnam is Out Now for PlayStation 3

50°
49w ago - BitComposer Games PR Manager Daniel Kraub posted up a new video announcing that Air Conflicts: Vietnam is out now for PlayStation 3.

To quote: Hi guys! My name is Daniel Kraub from bitComposer Games and over the past 10 months we've been working together with Peter Nagy and his team from GamesFarm on Air Conflicts: Vietnam, the third title of the Air Conflicts series.

After taking the series to Europe and the Pacific, we're now transporting the player to a completely new and underrepresented scenario. Besides, we have to admit that as Kilgore said in Apocalypse Now - we love the smell of the napalm in the morning...

So, what is Air Conflicts: Vietnam all about?

Get into your jet or helicopter and witness the Vietnam War through eyes of our main character Joe Thompson. Fly over jungles, mountains and lowlands in a huge array of different aircraft from the Vietnam era, both fixed wing and helicopters.

Experience the story of Joe as a pilot - leader of a squadron of men with varied talents and traits, all of whom you control - and of Joe as a family man - a son, a husband, a father; a moral man who comes to question his patriotism and sense of duty as the horrors of the Vietnam War unfold.

It may be an Arcade experience at heart but we keep it real...
