6w ago - Guerrilla Games Senior Online Producer Samrat Sharma announced that new Killzone Shadow Fall PlayStation 4 Multiplayer DLC and maps are incoming with details below!

To quote: We are very excited to announce the details of Killzone Shadow Fall's first multiplayer expansion: The Insurgent Pack.

The expansion pack is full of exciting new features for multiplayer including a brand new Character Class, 3 new abilities, 3 new weapons and 2 new game modes.

The Helghast government has been secretly funding The Black Hand, the operatives of which have been infiltrating Vekta City. The VSA has also started a programme that sends saboteurs disguised as refugees to the Helghast side of the wall. These insurgents are playable for the first time in the brand new Insurgent Expansion, which includes:

• The Insurgent - a brand new class with two unique abilities: Hack and Steal.

The insurgent starts with just a pistol and his wits about him. As vulnerable as he is, he can slowly build up his arsenal in the game by using [Steal] to steal weapons and abilities from downed enemies, which enables him to use those weapons throughout the game, even if he falls in combat. By Using [Hack] he can change enemy ground automata into friendlies, turning the tide of battle quite swiftly.

To quote: Hi everyone! Spring is here (even if Mother Nature hasn't quite realized that yet) and that means one thing: it's time for our annual Spring Fever promotion. I'm super excited to announce that this year's event will bring new indie titles to both PS3 and PS4.

Just like last year's Spring Fever promotion, over the next four weeks we are championing indie developers who are bringing new and exciting experiences to the PlayStation platforms and giving PS Plus members 20 % off each title during each game's launch week.

The Spring Fever lineup features titles from stellar indie developers and I think it is safe to say that this year's lineup rivals (and maybe even surpasses) that of 2013.

Below are the details and a video trailer, to quote: TowerFall Ascension is finally nearing release on PS4. I've been getting tons of tweets and emails imploring me for a release date, and I'm super excited to announce that the game will be available on PlayStation Store March 11th in North America. We're still ironing out the details for Europe, but it shouldn't be far behind.

For the uninitiated, TowerFall Ascension is a 4-player archery combat platformer. It's a competitive party game inspired by classics from the glory days of local multiplayer. You'll get plenty of chaos, close calls, and comebacks. Be sure to have a few friends (or enemies) handy when you download it. Gloating is encouraged and noise complaints just mean you're playing it right.

To quote: Lords of the Fallen for PS4, What do fallen gods and iconic ninjas have in common? Bandai Namco, of course!

Earlier this week, the publisher held a showcase in San Francisco to exhibit its 2014 lineup. A diverse sampling of games made an appearance - some for the first time since their announcement.

Dark Souls II and Lords of the Fallen won special attention at the event, thanks to their striking art direction and uncompromising combat systems.

But there was much more than tales of dark fantasy to entertain and entice attendees. The latest in Naruto's long-running Ultimate Ninja Storm series was featured, along with a new side-scrolling platformer from developer Suda 51.

If you're craving a punishing challenge and twisted story, look no further than Sid's hands-on experience with Dark Souls II. And read on for the highlights from the rest of Bandai Namco's impressive showing.
