10w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani shared a video today announcing that the Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry Standalone Version is officially out on February 18, 2014.

To quote: Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry, originally released as a DLC add-on to Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, is launching later this month as a standalone game for PS3 and PS4. Now's the perfect time to set sail as a master assassin!

In Freedom Cry, you assume the role of Adewale, a former slave rescued by pirates and trained in the ways of the assassin.

Red Barrels Announces Outlast is Out Today: Survival Horror on PS4

10w ago - Red Barrels Co-Founder Philippe Morin announced that Outlast PS4 is officially out today bringing survival horror to PlayStation 4.

To quote: Hello gamers! I'm Philippe Morin, one of the co-founders of Red Barrels.

Our first game, Outlast, is coming to PS4 today, and I'm excited to share that those of you who are PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download it completely for free.

Outlast itself is a survival-horror game created by a team of 11 people with one common goal: to scare the *bleep* out of you.

Here's the story so far... In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, the facility was recently re-opened by the "research and charity" branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation.

Taking advantage of the Asylum's history and remote location, they've been operating in strict secrecy. That is, they were until the reporter arrived.

Acting on a tip from an anonymous source, independent journalist Miles Upshur has broken into the facility, and what he is about to discover inside will walk a terrifying line between science and religion, nature and something entirely other. Trapped with nightmares old and new, his only...
 

PlayStation Plus: Outlast and Metro: Last Light Free for Members

10w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer is here with the new PlayStation Plus content updates, which include Outlast and Metro: Last Light free for PS Plus members.

To quote: We're kicking off February with a little something for everyone, regardless of what PlayStation console(s) you own. PS4 owners can give themselves a good scare by nabbing Outlast, a survival horror game where you'll play as a freelance journalist investigating a psychiatric hospital. Not really a job I'd take, but hey, times are tough.

There's no fighting back in Outlast, you can climb or hide, and that's it, so proceed with caution. If you're a PS3 owner, you'll be able to explore post-apocalyptic Russia in Metro: Last Light.

A first-person shooter with the option to be stealthy, your decisions throughout the game will impact the story's outcome. Finally, our PS Vita Play sale also continues this week with Dustforce, which you can grab for $7.99.

You can download Outlast and Metro: Last Light after PlayStation Store updates tomorrow.

11w ago - Crystal Dynamics Community Manager Meagan Marie announced alongside a video trailer that the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is out today on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is often declared a passion project at Crystal Dynamics, and in my opinion it shows. Lara's next-gen debut united three studios - leads from Crystal, longtime partner Nixxes, and Sleeping Dogs' United Front Games - to usher Tomb Raider into a new generation of gaming.

Definitive Edition pairs the vision and artistry of the original release with technological improvements that allowed for a truly definitive experience, and one that only hints at what the future holds for Lara.

We're really eager to get Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition into your hands, or the hands of your friends if they've yet to venture to Yamatai. Below you'll find a few words from the team thanking you for your support, and for spreading the word about Lara's first journey on next-gen.





"Thanks in advance everyone! Enjoy the improved Lara!"
Mike Abahazy, Senior Technical Artist
