Video: Watch_Dogs: Welcome to Chicago on PS4 and PS3, Details

100°
3w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Nik Schmidt made available a new Watch_Dogs video today dubbed Welcome to Chicago for PS4 and PS3 fans with details below.

To quote: As the third largest city in America and an iconic urban landscape, Chicago also holds the distinction of being the most surveilled city in the nation.

Its network of cameras and security systems makes Chicago the perfect setting for a game like Watch_Dogs. One of the challenges of rendering a real city in a game is balancing creative vision with reality: people must be able to recognize and believe in Watch_Dogs' Chicago while allowing the game's unique tone to shape its atmosphere.

With the freedom afforded by Disrupt, an impressive new game engine exclusive to Watch_Dogs, Ubisoft has created a version of Chicago that is almost impossibly alive. Learn all about the new engine and how we've created a living, breathing Chicago inside Watch_Dogs here:





Watch_Dogs is never just black and white; whether in expressing Aiden's morality or building the city in which he lives, there is always another layer to consider. On the surface, The Wards may be crime-ridden, festering in the shadow of the Mad Mile, but beneath the mirrored sky-scrapers and...
 

Video: First Look: Behind the Terror of Alien: Isolation on PS4

3w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman shared a first look behind the terror today of Alien: Isolation on PS4 and PS3 consoles alongside a video and interview below.

To quote: Alone, unprepared, and unarmed, Amanda Ripley is forced to match wits with death itself in Alien: Isolation.

The Creative Assembly's deeply immersive and fanatically detailed survival-horror game returns to the roots of the Alien film franchise - no pulse rifles or space marines here, just you, your wits, and the galaxy's most feared predator.

To better understand the "lo-fi sci-fi" origin of Alien: Isolation on PS3 and PS4, we asked Creative Lead Alistair Hope for insight into the team's development process. From design philosophies to the technical possibilities of PS4, Hope reveals a host of insights on the development of Alien: Isolation.

Watch our new video interview, read our Q&A with Alistair, and leave your questions in the comments!

PlayStation.Blog: So far, Isolation's concept seems to be an intimate one, with Amanda Ripley squaring off against a single Alien. What gave you the inspiration to take the "back to basics" approach?

Alistair Hope: From the start we wanted to make a game that took the player back to the roots of the series - back to Ridley...

4w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator David Alonzo shared a video below today announcing that The Witch and the Hundred Knight is out today on PS3.

To quote: Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls! It's me, The Great Doodini (aka David) from NIS America, and I'd like to perform a magic trick - I mean illusion - for you!

For my first act, I'll pull a Prinny from this hat! Oh wait, it looks like this one's exploded already... Looks like that's the end of that act.

Well, no worries, because I know someone who's a lot more magical than I am, and today's your lucky day because you get to hang out with her.

Her name's Metallia, and she puts the "witch" in The Witch and the Hundred Knight on PS3, which is out today at retail and as a digital download from PlayStation Store. This is NIS America's first 3D action RPG, so I'm pretty pumped to tell you all about it!

In The Witch and the Hundred Knight, you play as the legendary Hundred Knight - a demon summoned by the swamp witch Metallia to help her spread all her neon green, swampy badness across the land. Why does she want that?

Because even though Metallia's a witchy woman with a lot of power, she somehow can't travel beyond the edges of the noxious swamp she calls home. It's up to you to help her take vengeance...

4w ago - Aksys Games Director of Production Frank "Bo" DeWindt II posted up a video of BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma announcing that it is officially out today on PS3 via PSN.

To quote: Hey guys! This is Frank "Bo" deWindt II, director of production here at Aksys Games. Today we're celebrating the release of the long-awaited BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma on PS3.

Everyone is ecstatic to get the chance to play the fighting portion of the game, but another great aspect of Chrono Phantasma is its visual novel inspired story mode.

Some small spoilers for those that haven't played through BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, Continuum Shift, and/or Continuum Shift Extend, yet...

After the events of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, Ragna, Jin, Noel, and the rest of the cast find themselves in the Ikaruga Federation. There they meet Kagura Mutsuki, general of the N.O.L. and better known as the "Black Knight," as well as Kokonoe. Both these characters have their own plans in store.





At the same time, Hazama, Relius Clover, Phantom, and the Imperator are moving forward with their own agenda for the world at large. Saying anything further would be terribly spoiler-rific, so mum's the word!

What I can say is the story...
