SOMA Update, New Trailer: Crafting Survival Horror on PS4

50°
6w ago - Frictional Games Creative Director Thomas Grip is here with a SOMA update including a new trailer spotlighting the crafting of survival horror on PS4 below.

To quote: Time for a little update on how SOMA is doing. (A brief summary for those who don't already know: SOMA is a sci-fi horror game from the creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descent that will tackle unsettling questions about consciousness. It will be released on PS4 in 2015.)

Before I get started, I should say a few words about the new teaser trailer, "Theta". This video showcases a few in-game scenes along with fresh voice work. Our hope is to give you a taste of the feel and atmosphere that SOMA will have. It also contains a few clues on what the game's story will be about.

SOMA's current status

We are currently about a week away from the alpha of the game. This is a build in which a bit more than half of the full game is playable. It's currently clocking in at around 5 hours, meaning the final game will end up at 8 hours or so.





A game like SOMA is a bit different to have in alpha than most other games. Normally, a game relies on a core mechanic that creates the basic engagement....

6w ago - Ronimo Games Producer Robin Meijer announced that Awesomenauts Assemble is out today on PlayStation 4 with a PS4 video trailer below.

To quote: Awesomenauts is making a major comeback today on PS4 in the form of Awesomenauts Assemble! If you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you'll get the added bonus of a 20% discount during the first week.

Awesomenauts Assemble! combines modern, team-based multiplayer with classic, alien-blasting action. You'll play as one of 15 interstellar mercenaries, each with his or her own unique abilities and upgrades.

In battle, you'll team up with two other players. These can either be random players or friends, both online or offline through splitscreen.

Together, you'll be facing off against a team of enemy players, automated turrets, droids, and the local wildlife as you try to blast your way forward towards the goal of destroying the enemy base. And you'll do all this on lush, hand-drawn alien worlds.

If you last played Awesomenauts on PS3, you're definitely in for a treat. The game has seen an almost complete overhaul, from the menus and balance to the netcode, everything has been improved.

On top of that, a lot of content has been added compared to the original release. Awesomenauts Assemble! more than doubles...
 

Warframe on PS4: Update 12 Adds New Warframe, Weapons, Mode

50°
6w ago - Digital Extremes Associate Producer Pat Kudirka announced today that the latest Warframe Update 12 on PS4 adds new Warframe weapons and modes on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: It's been a long time coming, but Update 12 is here! The Warframe team is extremely (dare I say Digital Extremely...*crickets*) excited to not only bring Update 12 to our existing PS4 players, but also to our newly added Warframe fans in Japan.

They just got a taste on their Day 1 launch. This is another big update that includes a new Warframe, new weapons, a new game mode, and my personal favorite; a badass new HUD!

Zephyr: The Air-Based Warframe

For Update 12, we really wanted to introduce a Warframe like no other, and we believe we accomplished that with Zephyr, the air-based Warframe. Lighter than all other Warframes, Zephyr uses this to her advantage to increase her mobility, but also to complement her vicious attacks.

New HUD

Now I know sometimes it's hard to adapt to change, but bear with me here. Our new, stylized, in-game HUD is something every Tenno will enjoy. This HUD is less obtrusive, contains more information for the player and their squad, and we offer a handful of new customizable options to tinker with.

6w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here with the new PlayStation / PSN game releases for the upcoming week below, as follows:

The night is dark, and the howls of the undead fill the air like a despairing fog. As you survey abandoned streets, wrecked cars littering the sidewalks, you hear the ghouls approach. They nip at your heels and scratch as you pass.

They swell around you, and you turn to face them with a pounding heart. Luckily, you're armed. You empty clip after clip into the mass of rotting bodies. Congratulations! You just earned a high score.

Dead Nation Apocalypse Edition is coming to PS4, and it's bringing back the cult-classic PS3 shooter with new features and upgraded visuals. Grab a friend and fight through the throngs of undead in adrenaline-pumping firefights for high scores and survival.

Not a zombie fan? The hotly-anticipated South Park: The Stick of Truth is also headed to PlayStation this week. Experience a hilarious RPG written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and journey on an epic quest to become "cool."
