Hohokum on PS4: New PlayStation 4 Trailer of the Guano Factory

50°
52w ago - Honeyslug Designer & Co-Founder Ricky Haggett introduced Hohokum on PS4 today, complete with a new PlayStation 4 trailer of the Guano Factory below.

To quote: We're really excited to unveil a new place in Hohokum today - the Guano Factory - with a new teaser trailer made by Scott Benson, and backed by one of our favorite Matthew Dear songs: Temptation.

Matthew Dear is a founding artist of Ghostly International, and is also a DJ, dance-music producer, and an experimental pop artist. The Temptation track is off his latest album, Beams - a suite of weird, wild, and optimistic rhythm-driven pop. The perfect type of music for Hohokum.

In our first trailer, we glimpsed lots of places in Hohokum, and showed some gameplay, but this time around we wanted to try something different: focusing right down on a single part of the game - and the characters and action that happens there - and making something that feels more like a music video than a gameplay trailer.





Not every place in Hohokum is a peaceful place. For example, this factory is a noisy, dirty place, full of pipes and strange machines and bad smells. What are they doing here? What is that gloopy yellow stuff? What are they making with it? We'll...

Video: Assassin's Creed IV on PS4: A Truly Next-Gen Experience

350°
53w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani posted up a video today showcasing Assassin's Creed IV on PS4, proclaiming it is a truly next-gen experience on PlayStation 4.

To quote: A lot of people have asked us what kinds of technical advancements can be expected from Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag on PS4, so we asked Associate Producer Sylvain Trottier to give us a couple of examples...

He went a little nuts, and delivered an entire video detailing a ton of improvements.

CAUTION: Things are about to get a little techy, so put on your coder hats!

Some of the highlights include our use of real Beaufort scale waves for a realistic ocean and the new sea engine, which follows real world physics. Complex shaders work to give the ocean that translucent appearance.





Each raindrop is an individually lit object, puddles accurately mirror the world around them and volumetric fog accepts and reflects light from different sources. Dynamic Navmeshes (three dimensional objects you can run around on) ensure that you can jump from one ship to another without encountering weird collision issues, and can seamlessly interact between two ships involved in a boarding action.

We can use the...
 

Video: Bringing Beyond: Two Souls on PlayStation 3 to Life

53w 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.

Sony Goes Hands-on with Child of Light for PS4 / PlayStation 4

50°
53w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements has went hands-on today with Child of Light PS4 for the upcoming PlayStation 4 video gaming console.

To quote: With a small build, dainty crown, and a sword too big too wield, Aurora is an unlikely heroine for an adventure. And yet how perfect a character, and champion, for Ubisoft's upcoming JRPG tribute, Child of Light.

This dazzling array of fantasy aims to open the gates to the world of JRPGs for all gamers, welcoming both long-time enthusiasts and complete newcomers.

It's disarmingly beautiful, lacquered in charm, complexly elegant, and even a little haunting. It's scheduled for launch sometime in 2014, on PS3 and PS4.

Aurora, our star of the show, is a petite fairy of a girl, and daughter to a duke from Austria. She finds herself in a mysterious land called Lemuria, enjoying the company of an agile little flame named Igniculus. Her adventures to defeat the Black Queen will take her through a host of mystic environs in search of answers and, more importantly, home.

Child of Light is built with the same engine that powers Ubisoft's recent Rayman games: the dazzling UbiArt Framework. This means Child of light is built with layer upon layer of breathtaking, HD artwork. The characters and scenery move and leap...
