Bringing Killzone Shadow Fall Heroine Echo to Life - PS4 Interview

50°
4w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton shared a PS4 interview today on bringing the Killzone Shadow Fall Heroine Echo to life below.

To quote: One of the most pleasant surprises of E3 week earlier this month was bumping into Jamie Gray Hyder in the halls. Killzone fans should find that name familiar - she played one of Shadow Fall's stand-out characters: half-Vektan/half-Helghast intelligence operative Echo.

With co-op expansion Intercept out this week on PS4, we took the opportunity to sit down for a quick chat with the actress (who you might also recognize from her time on True Blood, as werewolf Danielle) and Game Director Steven ter Heide.

How did you first get involved with Killzone Shadow Fall?

Jamie Gray Hyder: I auditioned like I would for film or TV. I did my scene knowing I needed to focus on physicality - they called me back and it turned out we were on the same page about what Echo was going to be, so we got to work.

Steven ter Heide: The filming was out in LA and the director we hooked up with said, "We've had this amazing performance. Unfortunately she's under the weather but she really wants the part and we think she's perfect."

The character is strong - she has to stand up to the protagonist, but at the same time needs...

Deep Silver on Exploring Weapon Spirits in Sacred 3 for PS3

9w ago - Deep Silver developer Ryan Avery shared a PlayStation 3 update today on exploring weapon spirits in Sacred 3 for PS3.

Below are the details, as follows: Sacred 3 will introduce Weapon Spirits to the world of Ancaria.

These are more than just weapon modifies - they'll help the player to level their heroes and make their equipped weapons deadlier than ever. These mysterious spirits (some of which are based on characters from older Sacred games) come in all shapes and sizes, with many different powers to make for the perfect companion during the player's battle through Ancaria.

Weapon Spirits will enable players to increase critical hit rates, hamper enemy movement, regain health, provide essential support attributes as well as a multitude of other unique perks.

Let me jump quickly into an example of how these Weapon Spirits will specifically work in the game. One of the first Weapon Spirits that players will encounter is the Battle Mage.

Using him, you'll get less energy from orbs (found across Ancaria, containing health or energy to do special attacks) but you also have a 20% chance to trigger a Chain Lightning effect that hits four additional enemies for half your normal damage. What better way to wipe waves of enemies quickly?
