DR Studios Announces Battle Islands Launches Today on PS4

50°
9w ago - DR Studios Studio Head Rory Jackson announced that Battle Islands launches today on PS4 with details below.

To quote: Hi. My name is Rory Jackson. I'm the Studio Head at DR Studios in the UK, the developers of the free-to-play strategy combat game Battle Islands, which is launching on PS4 today!

Battle Islands is set in the South Pacific in 1942. A platoon of soldiers land on a tropical island and your task is to defeat enemy forces, build a garrison to defend your island, and go out guns blazing to attack other islands with the huge array of air, sea and land forces you have at your disposal - tanks, jeeps, gunboats, and fighter planes to name but a few!

We're absolutely delighted to bring our game to PS4 today - it's a major achievement for us, and the culmination of a huge amount of work and effort from everyone here. Battle Islands started life as a game on mobile devices, where it's been really popular. However, it's really important to stress it isn't simply a mobile game, as our PS4 launch clearly shows.

We've rebuilt it from ground up to make sure it's up to scratch for a next gen console like the PS4. We've built brand new, higher-resolution assets that we believe look stunning, and built a completely new user interface that really capitalizes on DualShock 4.
 

Video: Check Out Share Play PS4 in Action on PlayStation 4

9w ago - PlayStation Public Relations guru Andrew Kelly invites fans to check out Share Play PS4 in action today on PlayStation 4 in a video below.

To quote: The PS4 system software update v2.00, codenamed Masamune, will be available to download on Tuesday, October 28th.

One of the features included in the update that I'm most excited about is Share Play, and we put together a quick video to show you how this innovative feature works. Check it out!





As we've said before, the best way to think about Share Play is like a "virtual couch." PlayStation 4 will create an online local co-op experience by allowing you to invite a friend to join your game for up to one hour at a time - even when they don't own a copy of it. Share Play has three main functions:

• Share Screen - Share your screen with a friend, allowing them to spectate. This is ideal for PS4 owners that want to watch their friends play a game and provide helpful tips. PlayStation Plus is not required to use this.

• Hand over my controller - Pass your controller to a friend, virtually, and watch them play. Your...
 

Video Interview: Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions on PS4 and PS3

300°
9w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill shared a video interview today announcing Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is coming to PS4 and PS3 platforms.

To quote: The storied Geometry Wars series is set to make its long-awaited return (and its PlayStation debut) this fall as Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, being released under the reawakened Sierra brand.

It's not easy to live up to the Geometry Wars pedigree, but a recent hands-on run of one of the game's earlier stages was all the assurance I needed that the spirit of Geometry Wars is thriving, guided by the neon, wireframe hands of Lucid Games: a studio founded by former Bizarre Creations staffers.





"Geometry Wars" has never been more apt as a title, featuring three-dimensional geometric battlefields that bend and flex under the force of your shape-shattering armaments. The level I played was shaped like a peanut: two spheres connected by a flared, narrow bridge.

Fans of Geometry Wars 1 and 2 may find themselves instinctively looking for corners to lead errant enemies into to set up high-scoring opportunities, but the continuous nature of Dimensions' playfields means veterans will need to readjust their habits accordingly.

Video: Escape Goat 2 PS4 is Out Today on PlayStation 4

9w ago - MagicalTimeBean Developer Ian Stocker announced alongside a video trailer that Escape Goat 2 PS4 is officially out today on PlayStation 4.

To quote: #GoatnessAwaits - Hello, PlayStation.Blog readers! This is Ian, main creator of Escape Goat 2, with some important news: the goat has made its way to your PS4!

Escape Goat 2 debuted in March for PC, and has since enjoyed an overwhelmingly positive fan response. My proudest one is reaching the #2 spot on IndieGamerChick's leaderboard of over 500 games reviewed.

(Journey still ranks #1, and... Yeah, I'm okay with that). It's also the very first Double Fine Presents game. Can a dev ask for more than a nod from Tim Schafer? Every bit worth the golf club injury, from which I have fully recovered.

Simply put, the goal of the game is to reach the pinnacle of the Stronghold of Toragos - a structure laden with traps, hidden machinery, lightning machines, and ghostly animals. The theme is transformation: levels change dramatically as you solve them, some of them in a Rube Goldberg type of way.





Along the way, you'll need to rescue some of the sheep who have fallen under the tower's spell. There are over 100 puzzle rooms in all, but in an act of generosity...
 

Video: Sony Invites Gamers to a Little Bit of Friendly Competition

10w ago - Sony PlayStation Brand Marketing Senior Vice President Guy Longworth cordially invites PlayStation 4 gamers to a little bit of friendly PS4 competition today.

To quote: It is hard to believe that it has been nearly a year since [Register or Login to view links] arrived in stores.

Since then, we've seen the incredible passion of the PlayStation Nation, and plenty of new converts too, rise up in support of the connected social experience at the heart of the new console. To date, millions of screenshots and videos have been shared around the world, but perhaps the most important thing to be shared is the amazing experience that friends get when they play together.

There's something special about grabbing your PS4 controller, sitting down with a friend, and starting up a game. Whether side-by-side on the couch or online, there's nothing quite like getting ready for some real competitive or cooperative gaming.

Here at PlayStation we know that feeling very well, and always enjoy the chance to talk strategy with a friend the next day, or help them remember their defeat.





Our new video is dedicated to those...
