Sony Goes Hands-on with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PS4

800°
3d ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PS4 with details below.

To quote: The developers of the open-ended RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt describe their bold creation as a "morally indifferent" fantasy world, but it's difficult to illustrate the true breadth of that claim.

The world of The Witcher 3 is violent, desperate, dark, beautiful, and palpably old. It teems with quests and hidden dangers, alongside gritty heroes and the wrongdoers to match them.

Playing Wild Hunt on PS4 for the first time, its world came to life in unexpected ways, but delivered a consistently rewarding introduction to a rich tale.

Those new to the Witcher series need not slink away, overwhelmed - The Witcher 3 is designed with you in mind. It begins with a prologue that deftly establishes the important characters and the stakes of the conflict around them.

You play as a slayer of monsters - a Witcher - one in a long line of highly-trained, mutated beings that seek out and destroy threats against humanity. This background has gifted (or cursed) hero Geralt of Rivia with an unnaturally long life, and a set of skills suitable for his profession.

At the onset of The Witcher 3's story, Geralt and his old master Vesemir...
 

Video: The Order: 1886 Goes Gold, New PS4 Trailer Premiere

800°
1w ago - Ready At Dawn Studios CEO and Creative Director Ru Weerasuriya announced today alongside a new PS4 trailer video that The Order: 1886 has officially gone gold on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Well, it took a few years to get here, but I'm happy to say that [Register or Login to view links] went gold last week!

It's almost hard to believe that the game is wrapped up. There are definitely times when we miss the madness that takes place when finishing a game.





From our first initial pitch of the project back in 2010, to growing our team over the last four years, we have poured all our energy and passion into this game and we can't wait for everyone to experience it.

Back at PlayStation Experience in December, we were able to finally show a long demo of the game that encompasses the many things we have revealed until now; Neo-Victorian London, The Order, its Knights and their weapons and technology, and their struggle against the Rebellion and the Half-Breeds.

We still have a lot more to tell you before launch, but today we're presenting a brand new trailer that we hope will whet your appetite; a glimpse into the conspiracy...
 

Sony Goes Hands on with Guilty Gear Xrd Sign on PlayStation 4

11w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands on today with Guilty Gear Xrd Sign on PlayStation 4.

Below are the details, to quote: Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- for PS4 feels like high school. And that, surprisingly, is high praise.

I obsessed over Guilty Gear X when it launched on PS2. My friends and I picked apart every fighter on the roster, experimented with particular match-ups, rocked out to the soundtrack for hours, and even developed inside jokes based on the fighter intro quips.

And with Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign-, the team at ARC System Works is plugging a high-voltage generator into the series and flipping the switch with a smirk.

The latest Guilty Gear, which hits PS4 and PS3 on December 16th, embraces everything about the series' roots while reworking every visual component on screen. Even after spending time with an early build of the PS4 version, Xrd -Sign- is a flood of great memories.

If you're new to the series, Guilty Gear is a highly stylized 2D fighter with one of the most eccentric rosters to ever grace a fighting game. Do you want a charming vampire boxer? How about a pirate girl with dolphins for weapons?

Or perhaps a tall, repenting surgeon with a bag over his head and a giant scalpel in hand? Yes, series favorites like...
 

Sony Goes Hands-on with Resident Evil PS4 on PlayStation 4

16w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Resident Evil PS4 on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Abandoned mansions. Window-shattering dogs. That iconic zombie moan. So many gamers have memories of the original Resident Evil. It is, after all, a legend in the gaming space and one of the forefathers of the survival horror genre.

Fortunately for those who want to re-experience Chris and Jill's original fight for survival, Capcom is bringing Resident Evil to PS4 and PS3 in early 2015. Last week I took a few nervous steps through the mansion for myself and was mauled almost immediately. Still had fun!

To start, the upcoming remaster of Resident Evil is based on the remake from 2002, which was already a tremendous leap forward in visual fidelity. The fearless members of S.T.A.R.S. were remodeled, the environments were enhanced, and even the dialogue was re-recorded (R.I.P. Jill Sandwich).

The upcoming remaster has been shined to an even brighter (Or darker?) polish, with 1080p visuals and 5.1 surround sound on PS4. Even the smallest details - like the flickering flame of a candle or the sway of overhead branches - have been touched up by the team.

Resident Evil supports various display and control options, as well. Want to play...
 

Video: Sony Goes Hands-on with Freedom Wars on PS Vita

24w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill went hands-on today sharing a PS Vita video showcasing Freedom Wars on PlayStation Vita below.

To quote: PS Vita exclusive Freedom Wars comes courtesy of Japan Studio, Dimps, and Shift, and places you into the unfortunate shoes of a prisoner facing a one million year sentence.

It's not all bad news, though! By battling fearsome Abductors and rescuing citizens, your captors will generously reduce the length of your imprisonment - a few years at a time.

Featuring four-player local co-op (via an ad-hoc wireless connection, with vacant slots filled by computer-controlled companions), Freedom Wars rewards coordinated cooperative play.

One player can use a grappling hook to pull an enemy to the ground, while another dashes in to rescue an innocent trapped within the beast's chest.





While transporting a civilian to safety, you'll rely on the protection of your teammates to keep you and your cargo alive. Alternatively, eight player (4v4) competitive play is an option when playing via the magic of the internet.

I recently went hands-on with Freedom Wars, along with my pals Ken, Kumi and Jake, the results of which you can see at the top...
