43w ago - Sony European Product Manager Ross Alexander shared a new video today which spotlights the bringing of Beyond: Two Souls on PlayStation 3 to life.

To quote: Today we're happy to unveil the final part of our BEYOND: Two Souls 'Making Of' series, focusing on the lengthy process of progressing from the first draft of a script to a finished AAA video game.

The team at Quantic Dream explain how they started with the game script and then drafted concept art to set the scene for the game's many different environments and locations.

Then the real hard work began, with full photo scanning for the actors, the performance capture shoot itself, and then translating the data from the shoot into the dynamic scenes that you will see in the final game.

These are the hugely talented people who bring writer/director David Cage's ambitious vision to life.

To quote: BioShock Infinite garnered wide acclaim this spring for its mind-bending story and fantastic environments.

But the announcement of Burial at Sea - a two-part adventure that sets Infinite protagonists Booker DeWitt and Elizabeth in the underwater city of Rapture - might just be Irrational's most ambitious and exciting project yet.

PlayStation.Blog: What compelled Irrational to return to Rapture for BioShock Infinite's Burial at Sea DLC episodes?

To quote: You may know of Arrowhead Game Studios from our previous games like Magicka and today we're excited to announce that we've teamed up with Sony Computer Entertainment and Foster City Studios to create our next game!

Of course, this world also happens to be in a perpetual war against three alien species, one of which we revealed in our Gamescom trailer!





As part of the elite unit called the Helldivers, you choose your deployment zone and dive into battle on procedurally-generated battlefields. Once there, utilize overpowered weapons and Stratagems to defeat the enemies of mankind.

Working together as a team will be vital, whether calling in strikes or placing weapons, each action must be totally synchronized to achieve objectives....
