Daylight PS4: The Power of the Unknown Hits PlayStation 4 in 2014

28w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements announced today that Daylight on PS4 dubbed The Power of the Unknown is slated to hit PlayStation 4 in 2014.

To quote: In an age of horror games with carefully crafted scares and achingly detailed environments, Zombie Studios is trying something new with its upcoming horror game, Daylight.

Players awake inside an abandoned hospital, with only the light of their cellphone to guide them through the thick black. But unlike other horror games, Daylight changes every time you play.

To better understand Daylight, and the scares within, we asked Zombie Studios Creative Director Andre Maguire to explain how the game came together and why procedurally generated scares give the horror genre a shot in the arm. Maguire also tells us about developing on PS4, and what inspirations fueled the team members in their creative process.

Daylight is tentatively scheduled to launch in early 2014.

PlayStation.Blog: What inspired the team at Zombie Studios to develop a hardcore horror title like Daylight, especially following successful first-person shooters such as Blacklight?

Andre Maguire: We love the horror genre, and we wanted to try and create a game that would be scary every time you played it. We knew that...
 

Sony Details Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 3: What We Know

400°
42w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman shared some new details on Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 3 today, as follows:

Los Santos is the biggest Grand Theft Auto city yet... and even that is an understatement. Spanning the city of Los Santos and the wide-open countryside of Blaine County, GTA V is larger than Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and the frontier world of Red Dead Redemption combined. What's more, it will all be fully open for you to explore from the very start of the game.

Three is the magic number

For the first time in a Grand Theft Auto game, you're not just playing as one character, but three - each with their own individual personalities and lives to live. You'll get to play missions as one character, combinations of two, and sometimes all three.

When you're not out on a mission, you can switch between these three leads in real time using the character wheel. While you're controlling one character, the other two will carry on with their daily lives, so you'll never know what you'll find the other characters getting up to when you jump between them.

Michael is an ex-bank robber, living a comfortable life under the witness protection programme thanks to a deal he made with the FIB (the game's version of...

Below are the details, to quote: 2K and the development team at Firaxis Games are excited to announce the release of XCOM: Enemy Unknown for PlayStation 3 on PlayStation Network in North America and Brazil on Tuesday, April 9th!

We hope the PlayStation community is ready to save Earth in a way they may have never experienced before.

As a lifelong PlayStation gamer, and a huge fan of PlayStation-bred squad-based tactical games like Final Fantasy Tactics, Valkyria Chronicles, Disgaea, and Vandal Hearts, I'm proud to have something fresh and so easily accessible within Sony's amazing game catalog.

If you missed XCOM: Enemy Unknown's launch in October, this is a heck of an opportunity to see what the fuss has been about.

We're humbled by the 18 Overall Game of the Year wins we've been awarded, but even cooler to us as game creators are the individual stories we hear from gamers regarding their play experience.

In XCOM: Enemy Unknown, you'll defend the world against a global alien onslaught, making epic decisions via your secret underground base, and then deploy your squads...
