Rayman Legends on PlayStation 4: Your PS4 Questions Answered

50°
9w ago - Ubisoft French Blog Coordinator Florian Dos Santos answered some PS4 questions below on the upcoming PlayStation 4 title Rayman Legends.

To quote: Next week sees the release of Ubisoft's phenomenal platformer Rayman Legends on PS4. The limbless mascot's latest adventure won huge acclaim when it launched on PS3 and PS Vita last year, and we can't wait to see how its gorgeous visuals translate on the new hardware.

With that in mind, we've been harvesting a few of your questions via Twitter and our official forums, and put them to Senior Game Designer, Emile Morel. Read on to find out more about what you can expect from the PS4 release.

Can we use the touchscreen of the PS Vita to get the most out of the game? (Fragbeat, Netherlands)

Emile: In the PlayStation 4 version of Rayman Legends, you can use your PS Vita in Remote Play mode, which means that you can play the entire game on your PS Vita, without the need to use the TV. This mode is useful when you're in the middle of a game and someone wants to use the TV, so you don't have to stop, and you can continue playing for as long as you want!

As you will see, we have adapted the game controls to PS Vita so the experience is as enjoyable on this console as it is with the PS4 joystick in your hands!
 

InFamous Second Son PS4 Hands-on: Great Power, Great Responsibility

50°
9w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared hands-on details today on InFamous Second Son on PS4 who states with great power comes great responsibility.

To quote: Delsin Rowe strolls down a shadowy length of docks with ample confidence. Caches of illegal drugs have been hidden among the houseboats moored there, which is a disagreeable notion to our super-powered, rough-around-the-edges hero.

But with eye-searing neon and seething smoke at his disposal, Delsin has little to fear from the drug peddlers peppering him with gunfire. Bullets ricochet off the flashing neon light around his head as he flinches - they're more an annoyance than a danger. As he leaps into the air to greet his enemies, powers flaring to life, he can destroy them or subdue them. And that's up to the player.

Choice has always played a vital role in the inFAMOUS series, and inFAMOUS Second Son is no exception. Amidst all the open-world action that developer Sucker Punch has set in its own Seattle, Delsin can enter combat as a careful hero or a ruthless force. These methods of play not only affect how each battle scene is approached, but how Delsin's powers manifest themselves.

Smoke and neon, the two powers Sucker Punch has revealed so far, can cater to either play style. Players unconcerned with...
 

Video: Dying Light on PS4: New PlayStation 4 Trailer, New Epidemic

9w ago - Techland Game Producer Tymon Smektala posted up a new PlayStation 4 video trailer dubbed New Epidemic today showcasing Dying Light on PS4.

To quote: Hello, everyone! I'm Tymon Smektala, the producer of Dying Light - Techland's latest first-person, action survival-horror game coming this year. I'd like to use this opportunity to tell you more about Dying Light and its Humanity trailer that we released today.

Let's start with a simple statement: we've gotten accustomed to mindless zombie killing, right? Movies, TV series, books, and of course games - no matter what the medium, zombies became the cannon fodder of our times. After all, no one should bat an eye at taking down thousands of already dead, walking corpses. Or should they? In Dying Light, we make things a little bit more complicated.

With our latest Humanity trailer, we wanted to present a deeper vision of what a zombie epidemic would mean for humankind. "Epidemic" being the crucial word here. Mutating into a zombie is a result of infection, not some kind of a supernatural transformation, but simply a disease, just like flu, pneumonia, or SARS.





This realization helped us create one of the most outstanding features of Dying Light: its setting....
 

Sony Goes Hands-on with Evolve on PS4: Meet the Hunters

50°
9w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Evolve on PS4 introducing PlayStation 4 fans to the hunters below.

To quote: Four hunters push through the thick of the jungle, muttering warnings and checking their Sound Spikes for activity. The beast has been feeding, and the burst cocoon littering the dark jungle floor betrays the monster's recent evolution.

As the hunters trace the monster's footprints, it watches them from above, snarling and seething and ready to strike. High tension moments like these are often relegated to cutscenes in video games. But in Evolve, it's all just part of the game.

Developed by the team at Turtle Rock Studios (Left 4 Dead), Evolve is scheduled to launch later this year on PS4. The developers brought an early test build of Evolve to San Francisco to show off their latest creation. Much more than just a multiplayer shooter, Evolve's high-tension, asymmetrical design promises an experience quite unlike anything that's come before it.

Evolve is founded on the fun and thrill of the boss battle. In most games, boss battles are visually enthralling moments where players study patterns and exploit them to survive. But in Evolve, that dynamic has shifted. Four players work cooperatively as hunters to take down a fifth player...
 

EA Sports UFC: Feeling the Fight on Sony PS4 / PlayStation 4

9w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements invites fans to feel the fight on EA Sports UFC for Sony's PS4 / PlayStation 4 videogame system.

To quote: Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson circle each other warily in the octagon. Gustafsson leans on his rear foot, his toes spreading subtly under the weight; Jones shuffles forward, his shoulders clenching as he adopts a defensive position. Soon, the fighters trade blows, leaving livid bruises on each others' bodies and blood stains on the floor.

This agonizing level of visual detail is just one of the many ways that EA Canada aims to make players feel the fight in the team's first official UFC licensed game, EA Sports UFC. It launches this spring, and it's coming to PS4.

We went hands-on with an early build of EA Sports UFC running on PS4. What we played showcased the developer's commitment to creating an authentic MMA fighter. And since the team is comprised of Fight Night series veterans, they're bringing a vast body of knowledge to EA Sports UFC.

Because EA Sports UFC is built for PS4′s hardware, there's no legacy code to compromise the visual realism. Each fighter has been scanned in using EA's proprietary technology, reflecting exact body dimensions, tattoos, and skin tone in painstakingly detailed character models....
