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.

4w ago - Today Ryan Avery at Deep Silver announced Sacred 3 is coming to PS3 on August 26th, 2014 alongside a new PlayStation 3 trailer below.

To quote: Sacred 2 transported PS3 gamers to the fantasy realm of Ancaria for dozens, or sometimes hundreds, of hours when it was released back in 2009.

A few years have passed in our world, but for the lands of Ancaria it has been ages! History has turned to legend, old landmarks turned to ruin, and a new evil in the form of the Ashen Empire has shattered the peace that once was. It is a new era, and a time for new heroes to rise up and fight together.

Today, we're happy to finally show you a glimpse of the next chapter in the world of Ancaria: Sacred 3.





Sacred 3, the newest installment in the saga, is an action-packed Hack 'n' Slash game focused on co-op gameplay. You and a friend can choose any hero and use unique skills and co-op combat arts to defeat hordes of enemies and take on epic boss encounters.

The game supports seamless drop-in/drop-out multiplayer for two players to fight in co-op offline, and up to four players online over PlayStation Network. But be careful, your partner also is your biggest rival for the ultimate goal; to become the greatest...
 

D-Pad Studio Announces That Savant Ascent is Coming to PS4

4w ago - Today D-Pad Studio's Jo-Remi Madsen announced that Savant Ascent PS4 is coming to PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Hey everyone! My name is Jo from D-Pad Studio, and it's our pleasure to announce that Savant Ascent, a game about robot infested towers, magic missiles, and claiming ultimate power, is coming to Playstation.

Music and style are what the game is all about! Savant in real life is an electronic musician, and in the game you play as Savant as he appears on Savant's 5th album cover, designed by our art director, Simon S. Andersen.

Our team has been close friends with Savant for a long time, and last summer we decided that:

• We should create a game together.
• We'd use Savant's music and Simon's characters as inspiration.

We ended up with a beat-pumping, dodge-and-shoot action game, stylized to fit with Savant's tracks. Tracks could be unlocked, giving you an introduction to Savant's music, and also acting as powerful upgrades. This makes you feel like nothing can stop you once you get the hang of things.

We didn't think it was enough to only be able to shoot magic missiles and defeat robots, so we added some varying stages,...

4w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator David Alonzo announced that Demon Gaze is coming to PS Vita on April 22nd, 2014.

To quote: Greetings, doods! I don't know about you, but after a long week at the office, I feel like a vacation's in order. I'm thinking someplace exotic that will wake me up from the daily grind, and I know just the place!

I'd like to introduce you to the warm and hospitable dungeon-crawling RPG world of Demon Gaze, which will be available for PS Vita on April 22nd. Mystery, dungeons, monsters, and demons... this place has it all for you adventurin' weekend-warrior types. So come along with me and let's take a grand tour of the world of Demon Gaze.

Demon Gaze takes place in the land of Misrid, which has terrain for every adventurer. There are ancient cities (That are on fire!) for history buffs, woodsy mazes for those who pack homemade granola in their hemp-woven satchels, and even haunted burial grounds for travelers looking for a little morbid fun.

You'll get to experience all these lands in the classic, first-person dungeon-crawling style - slashing your way through mazes and getting up close and personal with the local wildlife by engaging in bloody, turn-based battle.

Navigation's a breeze when you can plot your course through these dangerous...
