20w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has shared some new details below today on Destiny of Spirits for PlayStation Vita proclaiming the world unites in battle.
To quote: In our last blog post, we provided an overview of Destiny of Spirits, a PS Vita game launching this year. Today, we're back to share more details about its social aspects.
Destiny of Spirits is a free-to-play, location-based, social strategy game. Players from around the world work cooperatively in turn-based, RPG style action to battle fierce Chaos spirits. The goal? Purify and save the world.
In Destiny of Spirits, friends will make your journey easier. Each day, The Destiny Engine - which is based on Western and Eastern astrology - will lead you to other players that the engine selects as compatible, based on a number of factors including birthday, name, and location.
You'll greet each day with new suggestions for allies across the world, and the more friends you have, the more benefits you can gain! The gameplay really opens up once you have friends. And working together with people across the world will affect how you strategically interact with Destiny of Spirits.
Spirits are unique to certain geographical locations around the globe. However, you can trade spirits...
20w ago - CCP Games developer CCP Sentinel announced today that PS3 fans can suit up and roll out with new Dust 514 Battle Kits.
To quote: In DUST 514, a massively multiplayer free-to-play first-person shooter exclusive to PlayStation 3, you can build an empire, wage war on a galactic scale and change the notorious sci-fi universe of EVE Online forever. But you can't do it without the right gear.
As an immortal mercenary, you'll want to outfit your battle clones with the best dropsuits, weapons, enhancements and equipment to suit your fighting style.
The customization options are nearly endless and with a galactic battlefield that's constantly shifting, you'll need to experiment with the latest military tech to maximize your performance.
One of the best ways to test out new gear in DUST 514 is with a newly offered Featured Fit. These fully-fitted dropsuit and vehicle setups are custom-made by our designers to showcase the combat advantages of individual races, weapons, defensive strategies and more.
Featured Fits are ready to go and don't require any skill training to equip, so Mercs can use them without burning through hard-earned Skill Points. Just slot them onto your character of choice, and hop into battle.
38w ago - Sony Santa Monica Studio Lead Game Designer Seth Killian has announced that both Zeus and Isaac Join the Battle Royale today!
To quote: Just stopping by today with a quick reminder that Zeus and Isaac Clarke are live today for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, along with our new stage "Graveyard"!
Graveyard mashes up MediEvil's zombies, mausoleums, and gargoyles with elements from The Unfinished Swan, revealed via ink splats after a mid-game whiteout. It looks great and keeps the fighting honest, with a medium-width playfield and zombies that will earn you AP when destroyed.
Zeus plays as a legendary heavyweight, making each strike feel epic. He's got limited range, but with the ability to power up every attack merely by holding down the button, he can crush a cowardly opponent's guard and build AP faster than anyone.
Many of his triangle lightning attacks are also excellent at catching multiple opponents for an even faster ride towards his truly Olympian level 3 super.
Isaac Clarke is at his best harassing opponents from mid-range, with a wide variety of projectiles powered up by his unique Stasis and Kinesis powers. He's no slouch at close range either, with some mighty melee attacks and the short-range force gun, but he shines brightest harassing...
43w ago - Sony Santa Monica Studio Lead Game Designer Seth Killian announced that Kat and Emmet join the Battle Royale today, and will be free for two weeks!
Below are the details, as follows: We're happy to follow up PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale's win for "Best Fighting Game" at the DICE Awards (the awards where all of the voting is done by other games industry pros), with a gift to all the players that have supported the project from the start.
I hear from a lot of you guys, and I know you've been waiting patiently... but that wait ends today! We've got two new PlayStation All-Stars joining the Battle Royale: Kat from Gravity Rush, and Emmett Graves from Starhawk.
Any fighting fan will tell you how much it means to have new characters joining a game, but it's even better because - as promised - these DLC characters are totally free for two weeks!
Wait, "free for two weeks" sounds funny... Does that mean if I download them, after two weeks is up I have to pay? Nope. You have a two week window to download the DLC. If you do, the characters are yours free, forever and ever. You can play them online, offline, upside...
44w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has shared a video demo which takes fans inside Skywalker Sound: Soul Sacrifice's Battle Theme below.
To quote: Back in December, we released a sneak-peek of the Skywalker Sound soundtrack recording video for Soul Sacrifice. As mentioned, the game's soundtrack is composed by Yasunori Mitsuda and Wataru Hokoyama, two of the most recognized composers in the industry.
Today. I'm excited to share a video introducing one of the scores Mitsuda-san composed:
Mitsuda-san was kind enough to provide us the following accompanying message:
"This was the very first battle music I composed, and I focused on making sure it fit the fighting theme of Soul Sacrifice. The battle style in this game is different from traditional RPGs and action games where the battles are not instantaneous, but rather extensive and you fight for a longer period of time.
Within those battles, you will face all sorts of situations where you can have the upper hand, or be at a disadvantage. So, in order to match these dramatic sequences, I concentrated on adding many different elements to each piece in order to create an exciting musical composition.
