16w ago - Sony Senior Business Development Manager Shahid Ahmad has unveiled an avalanche of Indie titles for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita at Gamescom 2013 today including N++, Volume and Hotline Miami 2 with details below.
To quote: Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Shahid Ahmad at PlayStation Europe. Strategic Content is the name of the game.
It's a fancy corporate-sounding term, but it's also a bit "black-ops" sounding, so that's cool. Our focus has been working with the indie dev community over the last year and a half, but it's not all we do. We also work with larger publishers. In this post, we'll be focusing on the indie story.
At gamescom, we've just underlined our commitment to bringing PlayStation fans the creative work of the some of the best indie talent in the world. Many of the games we've announced from our indie development partners will be making their console debut on PS4 and PS Vita. We've also got titles continuing to come to PS3.
Remember, at PlayStation, we allow the smallest indies to self-publish on the PS Store alongside the biggest publishers, we're democratic like that. We're also working hard to make things better for our partners, large or small, all the time.
Let's take a closer look at some of the titles we announced.
16w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani posted up a video today spotlighting Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag for both PS3 and PS4 platforms complete with Stealth details below.
To quote: Game Director Ashraf Ismail takes you on a stealthy tour through underwater caverns and the Spanish city of Havana in Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag.
In the following video, you'll get a tiny glimpse of the stealthy new skills we've included in Black Flag, which enable Edward Kenway to slip in and out of assassination contracts while causing minimal commotion.
Sneaking silently is nearly as important to Edward's successful execution of assassination contracts as his skill with his dual cutlasses (not to mention the extra money you can earn from a Stealth Bonus). Consequently, we've provided a variety of new mechanics to help Edward remain out-of-site and off-the-radar, like:
• Updated Eagle Vision - enables tagging of enemies and targets so you can see them through walls.
• Hiding door - a new hiding spot for quickly taking out guards while also hiding the body.
• Berserk Blowpipe Darts - diverts attention by causing an enemy to attack anything nearby, like fellow guards!
