Sony Goes Hands-on with Thief for PS4 / PlayStation 4, Details

50°
39w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on with Thief for PS4 / PlayStation 4 with details below, as follows:

Garrett snuffs out a candle flame as he stalks through the closed jewelry shop, inches away from a snoring guard. While the jeweler toils in his basement and his wife basks by the fire, Garrett slips silently from room to room, rifling through drawers and pocketing valuable trinkets.

Thief on PS4 is at its best when Garrett is left to his own devices, enabling players to vault through windows and pry open cabinets as the master thief himself.

This reboot of the classic stealth series takes a more open-world approach as players prowl the alleys and rooftops of The City, a shadowy nexus bathed in perpetual twilight. The City itself is a visual delight, steeped in long shadows and wavering fires that turn every nook and cranny into a sneaky play space.

And Thief's thieving feels tactile. Coins, jewelry, and other collectibles litter cabinets and line hidden vaults, providing ample motivation for completionists to search every corner and crevice. The more loot you collect, the more resources you'll be able to buy.

One resource worthy of investment is Garrett's trusty bow, which supports many arrow types - some for extinguishing flames, others...

With so many warriors fighting at once, these battles will surely give players a sense of camaraderie in hyper-fast gameplay.

40w ago - Bloober Team Marketing Manager Marc Colhoun announced today that Basement Crawl is blasting onto PS4 / PlayStation 4 soon with details below!

To quote: Hello everyone! Scary clowns, abandoned circuses and explosions sound appealing? Well, dive on in...

Basement Crawl is a PS4 exclusive that allows you to play locally with friends, a feature that hasn't been especially prevalent in games lately. Basement Crawl brings together retro gameplay, modern mechanics and grindhouse horror to create a completely addictive experience.

As soon as you dive into the game, you can face off against four players locally or eight players online in dynamic grid based arena mayhem. Even better, you can play 4-player local and 8-player online.

There are a total of four different classes and nine arenas to choose from. Depending on the setting and your class, you will have to tailor your approach and style for each match. Beyond that, there are unique bombs and power ups granted to each character.

Basement Crawl focuses very very heavily on skill. We don't care how many hours you grind in other games to progress and get the highest rank or unbeatable weapons. Here, it's all about reflexes and strategy. If you are the more skilled player - whether you've played for a minute or a year...
 

Sony Goes Hands-on with Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 for PS3

41w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 for PS3.

To quote: Editor's Note: this article contains plot spoilers for the original Lords of Shadow.

Since time immemorial, light and dark have waged war - each side bolstered by heroes and fiends of immense station. In the Castlevania series, the Belmont family has long fought the forces of evil and sought out the end of Dracula by any means necessary.

But in the first Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Konami and the developers at MercurySteam redefined the history of the Belmonts in a surprising twist. Gabriel Belmont's tragic story will come to a conclusion in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, which launches for PS3 on February 25th.

Producer Dave Cox described Lords of Shadow 2 as a "strategic hack 'n' slash." It places players in command of Dracula and his otherworldly arsenal of whips, swords, and gauntlets. With potions and relics in abundance, players will traverse a modern-day city in an effort to end Dracula's immortal suffering.

But Lords of Shadow 2 invites players to develop much more complex battle tactics than the quintessential "mash Square to win." Dracula has a rotating set of three combat styles that can be used to flow from one battle to...
 

Hands-on with Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition on PlayStation 4

42w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is back with a hands-on peek with Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition on PlayStation 4 below!

To quote: Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is not a simple, upscaled version of last year's critically-acclaimed adventure. It's a colossal effort, soaked in visual enhancements and technical optimizations. Just when we thought Lara Croft hit her peak, she keeps on climbing.

One of the first challenges Crystal Dynamics faced was Lara herself - even though the team had smashed expectations with the impressive original game. A new head and face model have been implemented in this portrayal of Lara, bringing new life to the legendary heroine.

Among the torrent of improvements made, the developers worked with subsurface scattering technology on Lara's skin. This means light will actually pierce the top layer of her skin and diffuse, giving it a realistic glow.

Lara's equipment has also been given abundant attention. Her bow and pickaxe clatter, bob, and move with her body, giving her entire character a renewed sense of authenticity. She sweats and bleeds like the best of us when put under extreme duress, and the remarkable animation and voice work continue to instill Lara with life.

There was no slowing down for Crystal Dynamics after...
