8w ago - Frictional Games Creative Director Thomas Grip shared a video today spotlighting SOMA, an upcoming Sci-Fi Horror title to Sony's PlayStation 4 video game console.
Below are the details, to quote: Hi, I am Thomas Grip, creative director at Frictional Games, an indie studio based in Sweden.
We have been crafting horror games since 2006 and are probably most famous for having created Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Previously, we have only developed for PC, but this time our new title will be released for PS4 as well!
For the last three years, we have been working on a game called SOMA. All that time, this project has remained a secret – it's a great relief to finally be able to talk about it. This game is by far the most ambitious and thrilling project we have ever undertaken.
So, what exactly is SOMA? Briefly stated, it is a sci-fi horror game played from a first person perspective. You are not a space marine though; you're a normal, very exposed person trapped in a nightmarish world. SOMA is a game about exploration, survival and immersing you inside an interactive narrative.
11w ago - EA Sports Line Producer Sebastian Enrique confirmed that FIFA 14 is on PS3 today alongside detailing the emotions captured from great goals below.
To quote: After playing past FIFAs and watching real-world football, we realized that we weren't quite capturing how emotional it feels to score a goal. In FIFA 14, we want people to really feel that emotion of scoring great goals.
In addition to the emotion in the context of a match, great goals are achieved by either (or both) great finishing and fantastic build up play.
The major changes and innovations we're bringing into gameplay this year enable players to create and feel those exhilarating moments that happen when they've assembled plays their own way through midfield.
Finishing is both earned and rewarding in FIFA 14. We're transforming the tempo of the game and inspiring players to build possession through midfield rather than sprint down the wings during box-to-box matches. Last year it was too easy to fall down into creating the same cheap chances over and over again.
Major changes to dribbling - with new features like Protect the Ball, Sprint Dribble Turns, and Variable Dribble Touches - create more of a midfield battle, and make the magical moment of a goal more rewarding.
12w 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.
If you have any questions, please just add them below and I'll reply as soon as I can.
17w ago - DICE Community Manager Vincent Vukovic revealed today that fans will be able to bring their PS3 stats to PlayStation 4 in Battlefield 4 on the upcoming PS4 video gaming and entertainment system.
To quote: This holiday, DICE will unwrap the next generation of all-out warfare with Battlefield 4. That means best-in-class multiplayer is coming to PS4 with huge 64-player battles, running at a smooth 60 frames-per-second.
Even if you start playing on PS3, we want to make your transition to PS4 easy. That's why we're notifying the devoted Battlefield and PlayStation communities that all of the time and effort you spend building up your Battlefield 4 stats will carry over when you upgrade to PS4.
That way, on October 29th, you can get in the game without any worries that you'll have to start ranking up all over again when PS4 launches. We got your back.
Today we also wanted to inform the community that DICE is promising to keep the action going all year long with the return of Premium membership for Battlefield 4.
With membership, players can expect themed digital expansion packs, new weekly content, and personalization options. And just as your stats, unlocks, and rank will be transferable from PS3 to PS4, so too will Battlefield 4 Premium membership.
19w ago - Vivid Games Brand Manager Jan Chichlowski announced today that Real Boxing on PS Vita enters the ring this August 27th for $9.99.
To quote: Here at Vivid Games we do like a fight. The art team is terrible at making teas and coffees - so that often ends in fisticuffs.
The sound guys are always making too much noise - and with the recent warm weather that's meant we've been extra grumpy, so often their racket has ended in a punch-up. And as for the management team? Well they are often throwing their weight around - so the rest of us really enjoy punching them in the face.
Not in real life, obviously. Fortunately, as the developer and publisher of Real Boxing, we're able to settle any disputes we have in the virtual ring. And we're really excited to reveal that you guys will be able to do the same on PS Vita on August 27th, for $9.99.
As the name suggests, Real Boxing is a boxing simulation game where you'll create a boxer and take him on a journey from amateur to pro. There are also a multitude of other modes and features including multiplayer so you can touch gloves remotely with friends.
There will also be regular tournaments based on leaderboard rankings, so there's always a new challenge ahead. Boxing games seem to be rather few and far between, so we're...
