20w ago - Lead Creative Farl Lee at XPEC Entertainment Inc made available a video today spotlighting Do Not Fall Out PSN, which arrives to fans on PlayStation Network tomorrow.
Below are the details, to quote: Have you ever thought: "What if the floor disappeared after you stepped on it?" Perhaps you have seen this idea in a game before. What if whole levels were built around that? That's the starting point for our new game, Do Not Fall.
Starting a title from scratch, creating a gameplay mechanic, story, art direction and a brand new IP was definitely not an easy task. Actually, it was challenging, but exciting at the same time.
Originally, we wanted to create a game that allows four players to play together. A disappearing floor is a common gameplay design in action platform games, but what would it be like with four people playing together at the same time? We could already imagine the fun and laughter when picturing friends trying to push each other off the floor or set each other up while looking out for themselves.
Besides this core idea, we thought about adding different objectives in the game, which later on became different multiplayer modes. In soccer mode, for example, players compete to kick...
20w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill went hands-on today with Killzone: Shadow Fall on PlayStation 4 with some PS4 footage below in video format.
To quote: At a recent event in New York, I got my hands on Guerrilla Games' upcoming PS4 launch title, Killzone: Shadow Fall.
The game will feel instantly familiar to anyone who's followed the long-running series, but there are enough new features and additions that even the most battle-worn Helghan veterans will want a primer before heading into battle.
The tools at your disposal in Shadow Fall are many: In addition to the requisite bullet-driven armaments, the new OWL drone gives you an enormous tactical advantage. Swipe up on DualShock 4's touchpad to set the OWL into attack mode, point your crosshairs at a space in front of an enemy and press L1 to deploy the drone, which both attacks its target head-on and serves as a distraction while you flank around the other side. The OWL is also incredibly useful when trying to keep track of one of the game's teleporting enemies. Just follow the bullets.
The OWL has other uses, too. Swipe left on the touchpad to put the drone into stun mode, which will incapacitate foes and nearby electronics.
Swipe downward for a drop-anywhere shield, creating last-minute...
22w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Poria Torkan shared a video today spotlighting Killzone: Shadow Fall: OWL Drone details alongside PS4 pre-order bonuses below.
To quote: In Killzone: Shadow Fall, being a Shadow Marshal is all about dominating the flow of combat and fighting on your own terms. Your OWL combat drone gives you enormous freedom in choosing how each fight plays out.
The OWL has several modes of operation you can activate via DualShock 4's touch pad: a stun mode, which creates an area-of-effect shock blast that stuns enemies and disrupts electronics; an attack mode, in which the OWL attacks anyone within range or targets a specific enemy; a shield mode, which creates a one-way energy shield in front of you; and finally, a zipline mode, which allows you to quickly and safely reach lower areas.
To allow you to tailor your gameplay experience even further, we're happy to announce the Shadow Pack - a bundle of exclusive content you'll receive for pre-ordering Killzone: Shadow Fall at participating retailers! The Shadow Pack will gain you access to these extras:
Give your OWL a unique appearance with these exclusive skins. Who says combat drones need to be devoid of personality?
22w ago - Guerrilla Games Director Steven Ter Heide revealed the actors today for their upcoming PlayStation 4 / PS4 title Killzone: Shadow Fall below.
To quote: Although they've shared the same planet for thirty years, the Vektans and the Helghast are now on the brink of war. With both factions eager to protect their home and reclaim what they believe is theirs, trust has reached an all-time low. The wall built to separate both sides can no longer contain the enemy.
In Killzone: Shadow Fall, you'll serve as a Shadow Marshal under Vektan Security Agency director Sinclair, who has you perform the difficult missions that ensure the balance remains tipped in favor of the Vektans.
But Echo, an intelligence operative for the Helghast, has similar orders - and she will stop at nothing to accomplish them.
To bring these two key characters to life, we are very pleased to have secured the amazing talents of David Harewood, who plays Sinclair, and Jamie Gray Hyder, who has taken on the role of Echo. Watch the Killzone: Shadow Fall story teaser here (below) to see them in action.
David is a British actor best known for his role as that other intelligence agency director - David Estes, the deputy...
