Help Us Make the Game Better
These are exciting times for Battlefield fans, and everyone at DICE! Today, we're releasing the Battlefield 4 open beta on PS3, and we want you all to join.
Simply by taking part in the beta, you'll help us test the servers, online functionality, and gameplay to make sure the PS3 launch on October 29th goes as smoothly as possible.
In the open beta, you'll be able to play both the classic Conquest mode and Domination, which you might recognize from Battlefield 3: Close Quarters (it's basically a faster and tighter version of Conquest, with more emphasis on infantry combat). The map on offer is Siege of Shanghai - you might recognize it from E3, when we first unveiled it and where the public got their very first hands-on with Battlefield 4.
Now, we want to bring that experience - complete with game-changing Levolution events like the big skyscraper collapsing or setting off car alarms - to all of our fans on PS3. It's you, the player, triggering these moments.
We're also looking to our fans to provide valuable feedback on the overall gaming experience. This is in every sense...
10w ago - Square Enix Associate Product Manager Mat Kishimoto has revealed the opening cutscene in a video showcasing Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII on PS3 below.
To quote: The story and world of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII has been shrouded in mystery. You already know you get to play as Lightning in order to save the world in only 13 days.
You already know you get to battle through this world with and against some of your favorite characters from this universe. And until now, we've only teased about Snow's inclusion.
So without further ado, we present to you the opening cinematic to Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, completely uncut in its full five minutes of glory.
While we can't divulge every secret to the story of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, we hope you enjoy the opening and witness Lightning and Snow like you've never seen them before. We also hope this cinematic gets you hyped for how truly awesome the end of Lightning's saga will be.
In case you didn't already know, pre-ordering Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII equips you with Cloud Strife's buster sword, Soldier first class outfit, and victory fanfare - all for the low price of... FREE!
16w ago - Sony Associate Producer Dais Kawaguchi invites fans to unlock the mysteries of Open Me, which officially arrives on PS Vita today.
To quote: We hope you're ready to think outside the box, 'cause Open Me for PS Vita is available today on PlayStation Store!
We received an amazing response from everyone when we announced Open Me back in March, and we've been listening ever since.
First off, we created a trial version that you can download for free so you can get a feel for the game. Secondly, the trial version includes the multiplayer box mode, so grab your friends and take on the challenge together!
After you've taken Open Me for a test drive, purchase the full 12-pack game for $9.99, or one pack for $0.99. If 12 packs are too many, and one just isn't enough, we created a 6-pack bundle (24 boxes) for $5.49. Enough packs, puzzles, and boxes for you?!
We didn't think so either, so we partnered with three teams in Japan Studio to create three collaboration boxes! If you purchase one pack or more, you'll also get the Tokyo Jungle box, Toro's box, and the Gravity Rush box for free!
The Smart AR in Open Me works especially well when you use the Original AR Marker, so if you have a...
18w ago - Sony PlayStation Public Relations Manager Aram Jabbari revealed today that the Killzone: Mercenary MP Open Beta for PS Vita arrives in late August while the Closed Beta is live now.
To quote: We're excited to announce that the Killzone: Mercenary closed multiplayer beta (for which signups were held a short while ago and already concluded, if you're just tuning in now) is now LIVE. To those who got in, you should already have the necessary information to jump in and get going.
Note: If you received a multiplayer Beta voucher as part of the promotion via PlayStation Home, please note that your voucher is for the Open Beta in late August, not for the closed Beta launching today.
To those of you who didn't get in or are just hearing about this now, worry not: we're going to open the multiplayer beta right on up in late August - details will be coming really soon, so stay tuned.
And really, who doesn't like a good open beta? They're a bit draftier. They let in more natural light. Better for Agoraphobes and such.
Killzone: Mercenary hits shelves in North America on September 10th, 2013.
