New Sony PlayStation Video Game Releases for February 18th, 2014

50°
26w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here with the new PlayStation Video Game Releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:

The world has fallen under the tyrannical rule of Grand Master Meio. As people suffocate in his steely grip, Special A-Class Strider Hiryu is sent into the wintry winds of Kazakh City to assassinate the dictator. The arcade classic series returns with Strider, which launches for PS3 and PS4 this week.

Guide Hiryu through an expansive map and cut down Grand Master Meio's forces in a flurry of strikes. Using Hiryu's indestructible plasma Cypher - and a host of unlockable special moves - players can traverse the dark halls, harrowing heights, and gleaming towers of Kazakh City with speed and skill.

For those gamers hungry for a more old-fashioned quest, the PS4 beta of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn also launches this week. Saddle up a chocobo and ride through Eorzea in this staggering MMO from Square Enix.

Interested parties can head here for more information about the beta.

There's plenty more coming to PlayStation, so head below for the full list. And enjoy the Drop!

Video: Strategy Game Frozen Synapse Tactics Evolving on PS Vita

28w ago - Below is a video from Double 11 Design Manager Gareth Wright on how acclaimed strategy game Frozen Synapse Tactics is evolving on PS Vita.

To quote: For those new to Frozen Synapse Tactics, it's an evolution of the acclaimed, turn-based, PC strategy game by Mode 7. Players control an elite strike team of futuristic soldiers, from shotgunners and snipers to grenadiers and machine-gunners.

Matches take place on procedurally generated, virtual environments, or players can create their own, choosing the amount of rooms, walls, windows, cover and so forth in the creation area. All battlegrounds are fully-destructible.

Players plot paths and issue orders for their units, aiming to predict their opponent's strategies or complete the match objectives. Both teams commit their plans for each turn, we call this 'Priming', and the outcome of that turn is then played out, resulting in awesome fire-fights, exploding walls and cinematic kill cams.

Our real design challenge for Vita was to figure out how we would engineer away from a complex menu driven PC experience to an intuitive design that still maintains the immediacy of the original game. Intuitive for us meant that it should appeal to a much wider audience but at its core should satisfy modern day die-hard tactical shooter fans.

29w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer shared a PlayStation Plus February 2014 video game preview below today, as follows:

Typically when you think of February, your mind goes to chocolates, flowers, and other lovey-dovey things. So we thought we'd celebrate this sappy month by scaring the bejesus out of you with Outlast on PS4.

We also have some great single-player PS3 experiences, including Metro: Last Light, a first-person shooter with an interesting take on morality, and Remember Me, a third-person action adventure where you'll take down an evil corporation by beating lots of people up with your own unique combos and messing with people's memories.

If you have a significant other, you might be able to rope him or her into some bank-robbing action with Payday 2 on PS3. After all, everyone likes stealing stuff. I mean, uh nevermind.

Finally, two PS Vita titles are joining the Instant Game Collection: Street Fighter X Tekken and ModNation Racers: Road Trip. Both include functionality with their respective PS3 versions. Fight against your friends in Street Fighter X Tekken no matter what platform they have, or download your previously made PS3 creations and use them in ModNation Racers: Road Trip.

31w ago - Teyon Producer Piotr Latocha made available a new PlayStation 3 video trailer for Rambo The Video Game below today.

To quote: Hi everyone! Nice to be speaking with you on the PS Blog! We have been working hard over the last 18-months to bring Rambo fans the best and most authentic John Rambo gaming experience to date. One of the main challenges has been to squeeze three movies worth of classic Rambo action into one PlayStation 3 game.

Our goal for Rambo The Video Game has always been to allow players to lace-up Rambo's combat boots and head-out on an action-packed journey through the iconic action-sequences and story-arcs of First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II and Rambo III.

Authenticity to the classic motion-pictures has been key throughout the development process - and we were greatly assisted by our partners at Studiocanal who spent weeks searching their extensive archives to find original on-set recordings from John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) and Col. Samuel Trautman (Richard Crenna).

These recordings provided us with pristine vocal performances from the central characters - ensuring the game will be locked and loaded with all the classic motion-picture dialogue, rage-screams and exclamations fan's expect. Rambo The Video Game also includes extracts from the classic...
