To quote: The team at Bungie is hard at work on Destiny, a vast and dangerous adventure that pierces the depths of the galaxy, tasking players with the defense of humanity. Bungie just recently revealed the cover art for Destiny, showcasing the awe-inspiring Guardians in all their cloaked glory.

And yesterday, the beta was formally announced. It's been a busy week.

With so much talk of Destiny in the air, you might have a few questions about this sci-fi, multiplayer shooter. That's why we submitted your inquiries to Bungie's Community Manager DeeJ, so he could shine a light in the black of space.

Read on for tons of details from DeeJ himself, including how easy you can drop into public events with other players, and what sorts of ways you can customize your Guardian.

Tearaway: Building Your Own Papercraft World on PlayStation Vita

50°
31w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford shared details today on building your own papercraft world in Tearaway on PlayStation Vita.

To quote: Tearaway is a game set in a papery world, which means that if you wanted to, you could craft the entire game from paper in the real world - and that's exactly what we hope people will do!

To help you along your way, we've filled the game will collectible papercraft plans, which you can unlock as you journey through the world.

As you play, you'll come across creatures, plants or objects that appear to be drained of their colour. Taking a picture of them with your character's in-game camera restores their colour, and unlocks their plan.

Each plan has various different skins - blank ones, or colorful ones, so you can either make something that looks like it does in the game, or customise them to look completely different and unique to you.

The plans will be accessed on our community website, where you'll find everything you've unlocked so far, and from here you'll be able to print them out, make them, and fill your house with papercraft!

The journey doesn't end there though. Once you've made your papercraft model, you can upload a picture of your creation to the website to share it with the...

Photography in Tearaway on PS Vita: Let Your Creativity Loose

50°
33w ago - Sony PlayStation Community Manager shared details today on the photography in Tearaway on PS Vita inviting fans to let your creativity loose.

To quote: Tearaway is about going on an adventure. It's a very personal journey between two people: you, and your new messenger friend.

If you're going on an adventure, you're likely going to see lots of amazing things, and you'll probably want to tell people about them. That's why we gave Iota and Atoi their own cameras!

As soon as we put the camera into Tearaway, the whole studio started documenting and sharing their journeys through the vibrant, papery landscapes, and in addition to providing us with mementos, it was clear that it could be a great avenue for creativity, too. If you know anything about us, you'll know that's something we can't help but include in our games.

You'll be awarded the camera early in your adventure. It comes with a kit lens, with a nice depth of field, and you can get snapping straight away. To unlock new lenses and special filters, you'll need to collect confetti; little colourful bits of paper you'll see throughout the world. You can spend this confetti on numerous things, including camera items.

There are five additional lenses to collect, each brings something different...
 

Your First Look at PS4 Adventure Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

50°
34w ago - The Chinese Room Co-Directors Dan Pinchbeck and Jessica Curry gave fans their first look at the PS4 adventure Everybody's Gone to the Rapture during Sony's Gamescom event today.

To quote: Hi there, we're Dan and Jessica, Co-Directors of The Chinese Room. We're based in Brighton, on the south coast of the UK. We made a game called Dear Esther for PC last year that was a first-person story-driven exploration and mystery title.

It was all about immersion and emotion, rather than having lots of complex gameplay, and was slow and poetic, with a really strong emphasis on the quality of the production - music, art, writing, voice-over.

It was one of the breakout indie hits of 2012, gathering up a whole bag of international awards and shifting over three quarters of a million copies. We were left thinking "how do you follow that?"

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, our new game, is our attempt to answer that question, and I want to tell you a little about it.

Like Dear Esther, the new game is all about the story. It uses simple gameplay - basic exploration of a first-person world - so it's very friendly to people without a lot of game experience. But it's not casual in the classic sense - this is a deep and immersive game.

It's...
