10w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani posted up a new Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag PS3 trailer dubbed The Heist today.
To quote: Pirates were a lot of things, but above all, they were ruthless opportunists on the hunt for plunder, booty, fortune... call it whatever you want - Captain Edward Kenway calls it an end to be reached, by any means necessary.
With the acquisition of riches his paramount goal, Edward assembles a group of like-minded renegades to take the West Indies for all they're worth. Watch the video below for a quick peek at how Kenway organizes a world-class pirate heist!
With the largest governments of the world all bearing down on the islands of the West Indies with a mandate to eradicate the pirate threat once and for all, Captain Kenway and his cohorts will need to band together to survive.
Of course, with that cooperation comes increased effectiveness and even greater gains... as Blackbeard, Charles Vane, Anne Bonny, and Calico Jack join forces with the goal of bleeding every scrap of gold out of these islands before the hammer finally falls.
Spoiler alert... it's going to get grim, Assassins!
10w ago - Sony Associate Producer Dais Kawaguchi announced that Rain arrives on PS3 today alongside a PlayStation 3 launch trailer below.
To quote: Rain will be available for purchase today on PS3 for $14.99! Also, starting today, the full soundtrack for rain will also be available for $9.99, featuring the enchanting music created by composer Yugo Kanno and the gifted singer Connie Talbot.
To celebrate the launch of rain, we played through the game LIVE here on PlayStation.Blog and on Twitch earlier today. We hope you enjoyed the stream, and got a better feel for rain!
It's been an amazing journey to bring the story of rain to life. Director Yuuki Ikeda initially had the idea to write a story about a boy who was invisible and could only be seen in the rain.
Inspired by an experience he had as a child where he found himself lost, the story of rain has flourished into an emotionally dynamic adventure, brought to life by the talented team at PlayStation C.A.M.P.
Thank you for supporting rain, and we hope you enjoy playing!
11w ago - Sony Senior Producer Florence Kum shared a new PlayStation 3 trailer video today on the world of Rain on PS3 with details below.
To quote: Hello everyone. Can you remember back in the days when you had time to just sit and dream? Sit and listen to the sound of raindrops against your window, or even watch it form patterns against the outside world?
Rain is the story of an invisible world revealed by falling rain, and the lost creatures that come alive when the clouds roll in. This unique game casts you as a little boy who finds himself lost.
He saw a little girl's silhouette outside in the downpour, but when he went out to find her, he became invisible like her. Now, he must make his way through this world, and since players can only see the character when rain falls on him.
We're pleased to reveal a concept video we have been working on which brings the game to life, playing with your imagination and emotions. Let us know your thoughts!
Also, please don't forget the exclusive pre-order goodies we have lined up for you. This is now up and live on PlayStation Store until 1st...
13w ago - Sony Worldwide Studios Art Director Gavin Moore announced that Puppeteer for PS3 is officially out today alongside a PlayStation 3 launch trailer below.
To quote: Hi everyone. At last, after more than three years of hard work, we finally get to launch Puppeteer today for PS3.
It's a true labor of love, and we can't wait to see what you all think of it. Take a look at the launch trailer for a taste of what's to come.
When I started with Puppeteer, the idea was to take a lot of inspiration from Japanese culture and mash it up into a crazy game. I really like that old look, but I'm glad we decided, as a team, to move the art direction to where we are now.
Mixing both Western and Japanese influences and moving more towards a darker, grimmer fairy tale. Besides, it would have been hard to be as creative and crazy with the characters and the world if we had stuck to the original look.
Looking back over the three and a half years of production, Puppeteer has been a lot of fun to make. Half of me is glad that we finally finished, but the other half feels a little sorrow because I won't be able to direct Kutaro on his crazy adventures anymore.
