To quote: Hey, PlayStation fans! Greg Bauman here from Edge of Reality, the lunatics behind [Register or Login to view links].

Last week, we told you that Loadout was going to launch on PS4 in the near future, but today I'm here to tell you just how near the future is: you'll be able to download and play Loadout for free via PlayStation Store on Tuesday, December 16th, 2014.

We've put together a launch trailer that shows off all the incredible stuff that PS4 players are going to get this month. Seriously, we've got a lot in store for everyone.

It's not just the billions of guns - we'd feel downright rude if we weren't including the billions of guns. No, there's way more that we've packed into Loadout. Take a look at some of it here... and pay attention near the end for an extra treat!





We agonized for weeks over what we ought to get you guys for the holidays. I mean, we were already giving you all these guns and all the ammo to go with them - so what do...
 

The Ins and Outs (and Ups and Downs) of Designing N++ PS4 Levels

50°
2w ago - Metanet Co-Founder Mare Sheppard is here with details on the ins and outs (and ups and downs, and lefts and rights) of designing N++ levels for PS4 below.

To quote: We're back with more news about N++!

Before we get into that, we want to let you know that we (and N++!) will be at Playstation Experience (December 6-7, Booth # I31)! In addition to showing the game, we're also hosting a panel where we'll discuss the development of N++. See you there!

The question on everybody's mind is probably "when the heck is N++ going to come out?!", or possibly "what the heck is N++?" - for the answers to those questions and more, check out our devblog and tumblr.

For now, we'd like to announce that N++ will have a groundbreaking 1000 levels, and we'd like to tell you more about how they're made. Settle in, this is a detailed process.

N++ is a game that lives and dies by its levels, so making great levels is one of the main things we are making sure we nail. We at Metanet Software have been hand-crafting levels for the N series for ten years now (!), and have made somewhere upwards of 5000 in that time, which is equivalent to more than one level made every single day for ten years.

We started making levels for N++ in 2010, and have amassed about 2000 to refine...
 

Video: Inside the Creation of Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell's Music

2w ago - Creative Director Steve Jaros posted up a PS4 video today taking an inside look at the creation of Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell's music on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Music has always been an important part of the Saints Row franchise:

• Saints Row was inspired by over-the-top hip-hop music videos.
• Saints Row 2 introduced sing alongs.
• Saints Row: The Third showcased the sing alongs as a bonding moment between characters, as well as key licensed tracks to enhance emotion.
• Saints Row IV added dance into the mix (originally we wanted to end with a Bollywood dance number but scope reduction transformed it into the soul train line).
• How The Saints Save Christmas ends with a Christmas montage (originally set to "All I Want For Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey).

So when we decided that Gat out of Hell was going to be Saints Row's take on a Disney-esque fairy tale, we knew pretty early on that a musical number was essential to the experience.





This was exciting to me for two reasons: First, the introduction of a musical number wasn't going to be just some gag, it (like all musicals) was going to convey central plot points and character motivation just like any cutscene.
 

Video: Final Horizon Out Tomorrow on PS4 and PS Vita Platforms

2w ago - Eiconic Games Art and Creative Director Simon Credland shared a video today confirming that Final Horizon arrives tomorrow on PS4 and PS Vita platforms!

Below are the details, to quote: This is Si at indie games developer Eiconic Games in the UK. We're very proud to announce that Final Horizon is launching on PS Vita and PS4 tomorrow, December 2nd.





Building on the success of our arcade action game Total Recoil we wanted to make a Tower Defence game our own way, with our own blend of action and strategy.

We've really levelled things up for this game. The killstreaks are crazier, the enemies are smarter, the weapons are cooler and we're really happy with the result.

We have spent a lot of time developing, testing and refining the enemy AI so it feels like alien behaviour. The Swarm will rush forward in spider-legged tanks and launch rockets from distance in their Skorpion heavy assault vehicles.

They'll swoop in with airbourne Hornets and Mecha-Wasps that will flock together for maximum impact. Then you meet the Scarab. The Scarab tunnels underground and breaks the surface behind your defences. You will really need to learn and adapt to complete the game.

We would like...
 

Video: Over-the-top Shooter Loadout Getting Cooperative Campaign

50°
3w ago - Edge of Reality's Greg Bauman shared a PS4 video today announcing that their PlayStation 4 over-the-top shooter Loadout is getting a cooperative campaign!

To quote: Hello again, PlayStation fans! I'm Greg Bauman from Edge of Reality, the fine folks behind [Register or Login to view links], the game we introduced you to at E3 this year. The team here has been toiling away to get our game ready to play on PS4!

These things do take time - there's a lot of work in checking, adjusting, and cleaning the barrels on several billion weapons. The amount of gun wax we go through in a day - don't get me started.

Still, we've made fantastic progress, and Loadout will be making its PS4 console-exclusive debut very soon! Before you know it, the ridiculously explosive world of Loadout will be swarming with PS4 players! That's the good news.

The bad news is, you guys won't be arriving alone. Take a look at THESE guys...





It turns out when we announced that we were letting the PS4 community fight over shiny, precious rocks in Loadout, a group of intergalactic, Blutonium-hungry killers decided to show up and take all the rocks...
