7w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman detailed some of the game-changing additions to XCOM: Enemy Within below today.
To quote: XCOM: Enemy Unknown was one of 2012′s gaming triumphs; an obsessively playable sci-fi epic that injected new life into the turn-based tactics genre.
As the commander of the counter-extraterrestrial agency XCOM, you faced impossible choices on both a macro and micro level. Send aid to China and risk upsetting Africa? Send a trooper into harm's way to save a high-level comrade, or eat the loss and regroup from a stronger defensive position? XCOM is at its best when the stakes are highest.
With XCOM: Enemy Within, legendary developer Firaxis is expanding on the foundation of the original with tons of new maps, new equipment, new aliens, a mechanized soldier class, and new genemods that can transform your troopers into superhuman killing machines. We caught up with Lead Designer Ananda Gupta to get the inside scoop, and we sent him some of your questions.
BVAidan: Is this a new game or an add on? I'm new to the series and don't know much about XCOM.
Ananda Gupta: It's an expansion to last year's XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and on PS3 you'll be able to get all of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, all the DLC that was released for that game, and...
7w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Poria Torkan shared a new PlayStation 4 ttory trailer video showcasing Killzone Shadow Fall on PS4 below.
To quote: To what lengths would you go to defend your home?
That's the central question in this brand-new story trailer for Killzone Shadow Fall. On planet Vekta, where rival Helghast and Vektan factions are living side by side under an uneasy truce, the answer depends entirely on who you ask.
To Chancellor Visari, leader of the displaced Helghast people, the Vektans are aggressors that must be kept in check by whatever means necessary. To Vektan Security Agency Director Sinclair, the biggest threat to peace is the very presence of the Helghast people.
Sinclair and Visari aren't the only ones at odds over their plans for planet Vekta. Behind the scenes, forces within each faction have begun warring and conspiring to further their own agendas. Some, like the extremist splinter group Black Hand, want to force an all-out civil war.
Others, like Helghast intelligence operative Echo, are desperately trying to prevent it. As Shadow Marshal Lucas Kellan, you must deal with the escalating hostilities before they envelop the entire planet - but you'll quickly discover that trust is a scarce resource on Vekta.
7w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman is back with a Killzone Shadow Fall PS4 video today alongside answers to PlayStation 4 questions from fans below.
To quote: As Killzone Shadow Fall gears up for PS4's November 15th launch in North America, we caught up with Game Director Steven Ter Heide to get answers to your burning questions across single-player and multiplayer.
We reveal new details on co-op, dedicated servers, weapons, DualShock 4, and much more. Enjoy!
@ShawnMacLean: Is Killzone Shadow Fall a good entry point to the Killzone franchise?
Steven Ter Heide: Absolutely! In many ways, Killzone Shadow Fall is a fresh start for the franchise - the game takes place some thirty years after the original Killzone trilogy, so most of the characters and story arcs from those games have passed into history. And while die-hard fans will appreciate the nods to earlier Killzone titles, no knowledge of the Killzone universe is required to get into the story.
@nick_serio: How long is the campaign?
STH: Killzone Shadow Fall's campaign should last well over 10 hours for most gamers.
