Sony on Facing the Challenge in Lords of the Fallen on PlayStation 4

50°
4w ago - Sony Online Content Producer Rhys Sutheran outlined some of the challenges PS4 fans will face in Lords of the Fallen on PlayStation 4 today.

To quote: "Do you like challenging games?"

So begins my first step into the demonic realm of the Fallen God - chief antagonist in Thomasz Gop and CI Games' forthcoming fantasy RPG, Lords of the Fallen on PS4.

In answer to that - still bearing the scars of endless Dark Souls re-starts - yes, I do like a challenge. Thomasz's jovial reply isn't exactly encouraging. "That's good! But you're still gonna die... a lot."

He's certainly not wrong. As executive producer in the small creative team at Poland's CI Games, Thomasz's friendly demeanor hides the dark heart of the man responsible for the most brutal, punishing, yet immensely satisfying fantasy RPG to make its way to PlayStation 4 so far.

I sat down with Thomasz at Gamescom 2014 to get hands-on with Lords of the Fallen's "second dimension," an alternate realm that the game's protagonist - and prolific sinner - Harkin will journey back and forth from throughout his blood-soaked quest.

"It's an important point in the game," Thomasz says as I face the first of the sword-wielding brutes blocking my path. "Learning more about both realms guides the player towards...

To quote: Over at [Register or Login to view links], we've been hard at work on new DLC for The Playroom. We're proud to announce AR Studio will be launching later today on PS4 for the low, low price of free!

Using the PS4 Camera, The Playroom became a way for PS4 owners to broadcast live 'shows' through the Live From PlayStation app. This piece of DLC is entirely built around that central concept.

Fill your sets with images or photos stored on your smart device, or draw your sets from scratch. You can also add various special effects to the screen like interactive smoke and lasers using your DualShock 4 controller. You will need to download the PlayStation App for your smart device, which you can get for free on either the App Store or Google Play.





Since our first reveal at E3 In June, we made a few additions to make an even better experience:

Video: Sony Announces Tearaway Unfolded is Coming to PS4

5w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford announced today that Tearaway Unfolded is coming to PS4 complete with a PlayStation 4 video trailer below.

To quote: We've got a very special message for you all: we are bringing the magical papery world of [Register or Login to view links] to PlayStation 4!

Now, if you know anything about Tearaway, your first thoughts on hearing that might be: "but that's just plain impossible, yo!" and you'd be right! A straight port would be impossible, but we were super keen for Tearaway to make the jump to PS4 and we're not the kind of folks to let something like the impossible get in our way!

So we started jamming and experimenting, and the result is Tearaway Unfolded - an expanded retelling of the original game, adapted for PS4, and rebuilt from the ground up to use all the unique features of the Dualshock 4, and with a bigger prettier world running at 1080p and targeting 60fps to boot.





The original Tearaway was a little papery world held entirely in your hands, and we used all the features of the PS Vita to deliver an experience that was as life-like and also fourth-wall-breaking as possible....
