Video: New Trailer and Details for Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

100°
6w ago - Composer and Co-Director Jessica Curry posted up a new PS4 trailer video and details for Everybody's Gone to the Rapture from E3 2014 today!

To quote: For the last twelve months, we've had our heads down working hard on Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and it's really exciting to be able to share some more information with you as well as a new trailer:





If you already know The Chinese Room, you'll know that we make story-driven games. Creating a rich, deep world with strong drama and exceptional production values is key to what we're all about.

Rapture is set in a remote valley in June 1984 and is a story about people and how they live with each other. But it's also about the end of the world.

Rapture is inspired by the fiction of John Wyndham, J. G. Ballard, John Christopher and other authors who deal with ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. There's a very particular English feel that we wanted to capture in the game, a combination of the epic and the intimate.

Rapture also came from our obsession with post-apocalyptic gaming, and the simple idea that whilst we normally play as the hero, in reality, most of us would be the piles of ash and bone littering the game world. That's...
 

DriveClub PS4 Could Be Most Realistic Sounding Racing Game Ever

50°
8w 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...

21w ago - Sony Digital Distribution Manager Chieh Chen of Sony Network Entertainment shared some Spring Fever 2014 PSN discounts today on TowerFall, Fez and more below!

To quote: Hi everyone! Spring is here (even if Mother Nature hasn't quite realized that yet) and that means one thing: it's time for our annual Spring Fever promotion. I'm super excited to announce that this year's event will bring new indie titles to both PS3 and PS4.

Just like last year's Spring Fever promotion, over the next four weeks we are championing indie developers who are bringing new and exciting experiences to the PlayStation platforms and giving PS Plus members 20 % off each title during each game's launch week.

The Spring Fever lineup features titles from stellar indie developers and I think it is safe to say that this year's lineup rivals (and maybe even surpasses) that of 2013.
