4w ago - Today at GDC 2014 Sony's Shane Bettenhausen of Developer Relations announced that new PS4 Tools and Middleware are coming to PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Happy GDC! Today we're announcing that we will continue to strengthen our support for the global independent developer community by introducing more tools and middleware solutions for PS4.

SCE has entered into strategic partnerships to bring new native solutions from popular middleware vendors GameMaker: Studio and MonoGame to PS4, further expanding an already robust set of development tools.

We're also announcing that fully integrated solutions for Unity are now available for PS3 and PS Vita, with the highly anticipated early access version for PS4 coming in April 2014.

Unity, GameMaker: Studio and MonoGame represent the most popular game development tools leveraged by universities and independent developers alike, and are used for both prototyping and full-scale game development.

Jointly developed by SCE and YoYo Games, a GameMaker: Studio-native solution for PS4 is now available free for all SCE-licensed developers, making it even easier for developers to bring their 2D games to the more than 6 million global PS4 owners.

Warframe on PS4: Update 12 Adds New Warframe, Weapons, Mode

50°
7w ago - Digital Extremes Associate Producer Pat Kudirka announced today that the latest Warframe Update 12 on PS4 adds new Warframe weapons and modes on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: It's been a long time coming, but Update 12 is here! The Warframe team is extremely (dare I say Digital Extremely...*crickets*) excited to not only bring Update 12 to our existing PS4 players, but also to our newly added Warframe fans in Japan.

They just got a taste on their Day 1 launch. This is another big update that includes a new Warframe, new weapons, a new game mode, and my personal favorite; a badass new HUD!

Zephyr: The Air-Based Warframe

For Update 12, we really wanted to introduce a Warframe like no other, and we believe we accomplished that with Zephyr, the air-based Warframe. Lighter than all other Warframes, Zephyr uses this to her advantage to increase her mobility, but also to complement her vicious attacks.

New HUD

Now I know sometimes it's hard to adapt to change, but bear with me here. Our new, stylized, in-game HUD is something every Tenno will enjoy. This HUD is less obtrusive, contains more information for the player and their squad, and we offer a handful of new customizable options to tinker with.
