Dead Space 3 Interview: Sci-fi Survival Horror Multiplayer Make-over

200°
75w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared a Dead Space 3 interview with fans today announcing that the Sci-fi Survival Horror Multiplayer game is getting a make-over.

Below are the details, to quote: Next February sees the release of the third main entry in EA's critically lauded sci-fi survival horror series, Dead Space.

While the first two games followed very similar templates, the latest installment really mixes things up by introducing full co-op play to the main campaign.

The optional drop-in, drop-out multiplayer lets a second player join in the story as new character Sergeant John Carver. While the game is fully playable as a solo experience, if you play with friend you'll have an expanded story and get to experience a number of extra sequences and set-pieces.

We sat down with the game's producer Steve Papoutsis to find out how - and why - developer Visceral Games has implemented this new system and what fans of the series can expect from reluctant hero Isaac Clarke's latest adventure.

Video: 007 Legends Celebrates, PS3-Exclusive Multiplayer Characters

78w ago - Eurocom Product Manager Rob Matthews has posted up a 007 Legends video today celebrating Bond history with PS3-exclusive multiplayer characters!

To quote: 007 Legends is a videogame celebration of the James Bond film franchise's 50th anniversary, featuring five classic Bond movie-inspired missions along with a downloadable mission based on the next Bond film, Skyfall.

Skyfall is an integral part of 007 Legends story, the action from the film bookends the other missions and we've built the overarching narrative of the game around a pivotal event that occurs early on in the film.

EON Productions, the production company who produce the James Bond films, have been fantastic partners to work with, granting us exclusive behind-the-scenes access to many of the film's stunts and action sequences, allowing us to recreate those breathtaking moments you'll see on the big screen within the game as fully interactive segments within the game.

During the Skyfall mission, we visit two striking locations that have been faithfully recreated from the film, as well as some fantastic acting talent including Daniel Craig as Bond that will appear on the big screen when the film is released on November 9th, 2012.

87w ago - Game Director Todd Papy has revealed a fresh video of God of War: Ascension PS3 Multiplayer Beta at Gamescom 2012 today!

To quote: God of War fans, it's Game Director Todd Papy again with the latest and greatest on God of War: Ascension.

If you saw the on-stage world premiere of our new epic single-player journey at E3, then you're well aware Kratos will be as bad-ass as ever when Ascension hits stores on March 12, 2013.

However, today I'm here to talk more about our ambitious multiplayer mode, a multiplayer experience we are confident will be worthy of the title, God of War.

Back on April 30th, I gave you an in-depth look at how our new multiplayer-mode works, combining the visceral combat and brutal finishing kills from single-player with an intense and fresh online 4v4 competitive mode.

I'm excited to announce today that we will be launching a global multiplayer beta in the near future, available exclusively first to PlayStation Plus subscribers (there may a few other secret inroads).

It's critical to our team that we receive as much community feedback to tune and prime our multiplayer mode for one of the best experiences possible, come launch this March.

Here's a brand-new multiplayer trailer...

To quote: Over the past couple of weeks we've taken you through the controls and cross-platform features, so this time we're going to dive into the multiplayer and single-player modes.

Real-world table football is the most fun when you play it with friends, and that's something we definitely took into account when developing Foosball 2012.

Up to four players can play locally at the same time, whether that's two for each team or other combinations like 1 vs. 1 or 2 vs. AI or 2 vs. 1 and so forth. It's also possible for some of the players to play with PlayStation Move and others with DualShock 3.

Online multiplayer is also present, of course. You can play alone, or join up with a friend locally and take on the world together. Every victory nets you experience points and boosts your global ranking, so be sure to check the leaderboards to see whether your friends are above or below you.
