5w ago - Eiconic Games Art and Creative Director Simon Credland revealed new screenshots for Final Horizon on PS4 and PS Vita today!

To quote: This is Si at indie games developer Eiconic Games in the UK. We've been busy developing Final Horizon for PS4 and PS Vita, and are excited to share the first batch of screenshots with Playstation.Blog readers.

Final Horizon has some great puzzling levels that will demand all your skills to solve, and frantic action levels where you won't even have time to blink.

The story takes the player on a journey from planet to planet and into dark, undiscovered galaxies that are home to the alien Swarm. But not only will you play on planetary surfaces, but you'll also get to take over the Overwatch orbital satellite as a killstreak reward. Ever want to shoot the legs off a spider from space?

As you play through Final Horizon, the levels get tougher, the Swarm gets stronger, and you're going to need to think fast and act faster.

This is a strategic, puzzling, action-packed tower defense game. We've developed and optimized our PS Vita engine to be able to pack more action in that we know Vita players have been asking for. Developing on PS4 means more of everything - more explosions, more special effects, and we plan to add more during the coming...
 

Sony Details the 19 Classes of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

5w ago - Square Enix Community Project Manager Hergen Thaens detailed the 19 classes of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn for PS4 fans today.

To quote: Welcome to another update on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn - the biggest one so far. A lot of you have probably played the first beta phase from February 22nd to March 3rd - barely enough time to get your hands on one or two classes in a single city, right? Well then, let's introduce you to the others!

You're free to start in any of the three cities: Gridania, Ul'dah, or Limsa Lominsa. Most of you will want to get used to the game first, so you can play solo and get acquainted with everything.

Up until level 15, you've got tons of local quests and adventures that await you - and from level 15 onwards, the whole world opens up to you as you get access to the airship and the other cities.

If you want to play with your friends, you simply have to choose classes with the same starting cities, and you can group up right away.

Once you've acquired a class, you can change to it at any given time (outside of combat and dungeons) by simply equipping the weapon associated with it. It's that simple!

So, let's get started, shall we?

Gridania, One with the Forest

Gridania lies in the...
 

Get the Most Out of Multiplayer in Final Fantasy XIV on PS4

6w ago - Square Enix Community Project Manager Hergen Thaens detailed how to get the most out of PS4 multiplayer in Final Fantasy XIV on PlayStation 4 today.

To quote: For the most part, players can explore the world of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn at their own leisure. But what would an MMO be without some group content? In this blog post, we'll introduce you to the numerous activities that can only be mastered in groups of four to 24.

The realm of Eorzea, with its three city-states, is far-reaching. It has many hidden corners and crevices in which the wicked can find a welcome foothold. Be it the manor of a lady, so struck with vanity that she exchanged sanity for it, or an abandoned mine overrun with beastmen - adventurers are in constant demand, and there's always something to do.

Throughout the game, adventurers will also come across the so-called Primals. How these god-like beings are called into the realm is an important part of the storyline, so we won't give too much away.

The best known example of the sheer destructiveness of the Primals was the coming of the Seventh Umbral Era, brought forth by the elder primal Bahamut, who was freed from his prison in the lesser moon Dalamud. A single, massive battle with Bahamut reshaped the face of Eorzea forever. What happened...
 

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn PS4 - PlayStation 4 Beta Tips

8w ago - Square Enix Community Project Manager Hergen Thaens posted up some PlayStation 4 Beta tips today for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on PS4.

To quote: It's now Saturday. The floodgates have opened, and our login servers are starting to grind their gears in earnest - the PS4 beta has begun!

For those of you that have not yet found your way into the realm of Eorzea, this is for you. If you haven't download the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn PS4 beta, just jump into PlayStation Store now.

First Steps

After you've logged in and updated the game, you can go straight to the character creation process. This is really straightforward - choose whatever suits you best! From hulking Roegadyn to tiny Lalafell, all is available to you.

But an important note: if you want to play with friends, you'll want to make sure that you choose classes that start in the same city! It's a long trip from city to city, until you do the quest to access a new travel method at level 15.

While you work yourself through the introduction, you'll be in an instance (a sealed-off area in the game) that only you are in. That's normal - as soon as you've finished the first few quests, you'll find yourself among tons of other players.

The game will introduce the...
