To quote: Starting today, you can pick up Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut on both PS3 and PS Vita. The game has Cross-Buy and Cross-Save functionality, and is available through PlayStation Store for $12.99 ($11.69 for PlayStation Plus members).
Here at Curve Studios, we've been working with talented indie developers to bring their games to you guys via PS3 and Vita. For Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut, we've been working very closely with the creator and developer of the original Lone Survivor, Jasper Byrne.
What is Lone Survivor? As the game itself will remind you, this is one to play in the dark with headphones on.
Jasper describes Lone Survivor as a "psychological survival adventure game." It has taken elements from classic adventure games and the best bits of the survival horror genre to create something you haven't seen before.
You can expect scares, scarcity of ammo and exploration of surreal and atmospheric environments to be a big part of the game, but there's also an element of psychological horror...
12w ago - Killzone Community Editor Victor Zuylen posted up a Killzone Shadow Fall PS4 Q&A today dubbed The Black Hand on PlayStation 4 below.
To quote: Following our recent Guerrilla Dossier on the Black Hand, we've asked Art Director Roy Postma and Assistant Art Director Dan Calvert to tell us more about the creation and design of the radical Helghast subfaction from Killzone Shadow Fall.
Why do the Black Hand look so different from any of the foes seen before in the Killzone universe?
Dan Calvert: We're dealing with the universe-changing consequences of the demise of planet Helghan, plus the jump in time between Killzone 3 and Killzone Shadow Fall. We'd already started to see the Helghast fragment in Killzone 3 after Scolar Visari's death, and the loss of their home and a vast part of their population only furthered this.
The Helghast maintain their identity and their ideals, but their goals are now splintered. The Black Hand are the most divergent Helghast subfaction we see in Shadow Fall; they're not a regular army, and...
12w ago - Curve Studios PR and Marketing Manager Rob Clarke has announced release date details for Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut on both PS3 and PS Vita below today.
To quote: Hey everyone, Rob here, representing the fine men and women of Curve studios in London. I'm very happy to announce that Lone Survivor will be out this coming Tuesday, the 24th of September.
Lone Survivor was originally released for the PC last year by indie developer Jasper Byrne. After eight months of work with Jasper on the PS3 and PS Vita versions, we're very happy to say that we've created the definitive version of this game.
Jasper describes the game as a "Psychological Survival Adventure." It has all the hallmarks of classic survival horror games - high on atmosphere and low on available sources of ammunition.
Players can choose to use stealth or firepower to deal with the monsters in Lone Survivor. Depending on player choices, the game can play out very differently, with many optional scenes and different endings.
For the PlayStation version, we started with simple upgrades, like adding touch support on Vita and improving the lighting system... and things spiralled from there!
We've added over twenty new items, new endings, and new game locations. All of them have been...
13w ago - Guerrilla Cambridge Senior Producer Mark Green posted up a fresh Killzone Mercenary PS Vita video today spotlighting the week one multiplayer stats below.
To quote: A week after Killzone Mercenary's launch, one of the great things to see is how so many different people play the game in so many different ways.
Looking at the stats I can see that the M82 and the silenced STA-52SE are the weapons of choice for a lot of people, each racking up 5M+ kills already, but digging deeper it's great to see that some of the other weapons are being wielded very effectively.
I'd expected my personal favourite - the STA-14 - to be topping the headshot charts, but it's actually being pipped at the post by the up close and personal touch of the silenced STA-18SE.
It seems there are a lot of you out there who really don't want to show up on the radar! No doubt those people have already bought the Infiltrator Armour as well.
If you want to check out some of the stats for yourself then take at looks at Blackjack's on the official Killzone Mercenary site.
If you're already playing, then I hope you like watching what's...

It's been a fantastic voyage for us, and we're immensely proud of what we've been able to create - the true Killzone FPS experience on a handheld.
A twin-stick shooter on a HD screen in the palm of your hands, with substantial replayability built in and, if I do say so myself, an addictive multiplayer game integral to the whole experience.
The multiplayer game has been through a few stages of Betas over the last couple of months, and we are immensely grateful to all everyone who took part - especially those who took the time to provide...
