53w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani announced today that Assassin's Creed IV: Freedom Cry arrives tomorrow on PS3 / PS4 as DLC with a video trailer below.

To quote: Unleash the fury of Adewale's machete in Freedom Cry, a new single-player episode of Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag coming to PlayStation Store tomorrow!

Fifteen years after the events of Assassin's Creed IV, the former first mate of the Jackdaw and trained Assassin Adewale finds himself embroiled in a battle to free slaves in Haiti.

Featuring a brand new environment in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Freedom Cry plunges you into a world dominated by the slave trade, and confronts Adewale with a past he'd hoped to have left far behind.





On Adewale's journey, you'll free slaves from plantations as well as huge slaver galleons while sailing aboard Adewale's ship, the Experto Crede. Some of those you liberate will choose to help you, whether it's fighting by your side or assisting by unlocking new upgrades to Adewale's trademark weapons: a wicked machete designed to use crushing momentum to hack through nearly anything and a wide-bore blunderbuss capable of dropping multiple foes in a single blast.
 

FarSight Studios Announce Pinball Arcade is Out Tomorrow on PS4

50°
53w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King announced that Pinball Arcade PS4 is officially out tomorrow on the PlayStation 4.

To quote: The holidays are here, and we're happy to be launching Pinball Arcade on PS4 tomorrow!

We've been working hard all year on remastering and relighting the classic pinball tables in our game to take advantage of the PS4′s power. And you're getting a table on PS4 for free.

That table happens to be one of the best pinballs of all time, Tales of the Arabian Nights, which was designed and manufactured by Williams in 1996. We can't wait for people to try it who may never have tried pinball before. Pinball is a much deeper game than some people think.

Out Tomorrow

The digital version goes live this week in North America. The blu-ray is also getting delivered to a few retailers this week - a great stocking stuffer for anyone who likes pinball (hint hint).

We're launching with all of our Season One content available. That's more than 20 tables worthy of first ballot Pinball Hall of Fame inductions. In fact, nine of the top fourteen ever, according to [Register or Login to view links] are available from day one on PS4. We're humbled to get to recreate these masterpieces for all of the real pinball fans out...
 

Knack on PS4: Unlockable Characters and Challenge Modes

50°
53w ago - Sony Game Director Mark Cerny shared details on unlockable characters and challenge modes in Knack on PS4 below today.

To quote: Knack launched alongside PS4 in every territory, and now that there's been some time for the players to get up to speed on our game, I wanted to talk a bit more about the unlockable features waiting within.

As you probably know, there are hidden treasure chests in secret rooms scattered throughout the story which contain random items.

Some of those items are parts of gadgets that will help Knack in his quest; however the treasure chests also contain more exotic items called Crystal Relics.

There are six different types of Crystal Relics, and if you collect enough of one type, you can unlock a special Knack that can be used when replaying the game, or in one of the challenge modes that you unlock upon beating the game.

For example, collecting 15 Ruby Relics unlocks Vampire Knack, who has stronger attacks, but also a weakness - he's slowly melting, Parts drop off his body and he loses health as he fights. He can replenish that health by defeating enemies, so in a sense he's sucking their energy into himself!

So as soon as you collect the required 15 Ruby Relics, you can start the game from the beginning, playing this time...
