13w ago - Killzone Community Editor Victor Zuylen invites PS4 fans to beat Killzone Shadow Fall's Lead Designer at his own PlayStation 4 game!

To quote: The interactive event known as First To Greatness, which celebrates the many different gaming firsts to be had across the PS4 launch lineup, is drawing to a close.

Only a single challenge of the 64 remains open, and today we're going to reveal how you can complete it to become part of PlayStation 4 history.

The "Ending Ebolt" challenge requires you to take out Killzone Shadow Fall lead designer Eric Boltjes (a.k.a. Ebolt) in an online multiplayer match.

To prove that you've truly ended him, you must upload video evidence of your actions to your Facebook account using the DualShock 4 Share button, and submit the footage to FirstToGreatness.com by signing in with Facebook.

Finding and eliminating Ebolt has been no easy feat, but we can make it slightly easier by revealing when and where he'll be online: a little OWL has told us that Eric will be playing Classic Warzone on Friday, January 17th at 9:00 PM PT.

So be on the lookout - you might just go down in PlayStation history as the first player to beat Killzone Shadow Fall's lead designer at his own...
 

New, Free Killzone Shadow Fall PS4 Multiplayer Maps Revealed

50°
13w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Poria Torkan is here with the revealing of some new, free Killzone Shadow Fall PS4 multiplayer maps today!

To quote: Today we're giving you a look at the first pair of downloadable multiplayer maps for Killzone Shadow Fall, inspired by key locations from the single-player campaign. The maps will be released to the community free of charge, and will be fully compatible with Killzone Shadow Fall's Custom Warzone feature.

First up is The Cruiser, a close-to-mid-range combat map set in the confines of a decommissioned ISA cruiser. Consisting of tight, claustrophobic corridors and interconnected compartments, the key to dominating this map is identifying and controlling its choke points.

Next is The Hangar, a wide-open map situated in the hangar bay of one of Helghan's humongous mining spires. In addition to the main area, which offers long lines of sight suitable for sniping, the map contains alternative routes that will need to be secured for full control.

Apart from The Cruiser and The Hanger multiplayer maps, we're also working on the first DLC expansion pack for Killzone Shadow Fall. We'll have more information on what it entails and when it's available in the near future.

There's a whole season of exciting multiplayer content coming...
 

Video: King Oddball Ends The World Launches on PS Vita Today

14w ago - 10tons PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi shared a fresh video announcing that King Oddball Ends The World launches on PS Vita today.

To quote: Greetings from still miraculously snowless Finland, PlayStation Blog readers! This week 10tons is back with another game to PS Vita, and what a game it is.

I'm quite frankly not sure what to say about King Oddball. Or, King Oddball Ends the World, as the full name goes in all its glory. The game is a bit peculiar, you see. You're probably better off trying the free trial.

While it's technically true that King Oddball falls in the same physics-based puzzle category as Angry Birds, the fruitfulness of the comparison doesn't last long. Sure, you lob objects at things in both games, but that's largely as far as the similarities go.





First of all, King Oddball is a bit weird. What the heck the titular main character even is? What is he a king of? Why is his tongue so absurdly long and stretchy? Why is he in such a foul mood? Your guess is as good as mine. All I know is the eccentric art style and accordion-heavy soundtrack fit the game perfectly.

Gameplay-wise, and this is probably the part everyone is the most interested in, King Oddball is equally uncommon:...

17w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King shared an update today on Pinball Arcade for PS4 with details and a video below, as follows:

Hey there, PlayStation and pinball fans! We are now officially available on PS4! We're super excited that we were able to get it out in time for the holidays.

The positive response to The Pinball Arcade has been overwhelming. Reviewers have been raving about the new lighting and reworked physics which take full advantage of the PS4′s powerful hardware.

The next-gen experience is alive and well in the PS4 version of The Pinball Arcade.

Some people who own Season One basic on PS3 were not able to purchase the discounted Season One pro on PS4. To those waiting on that Season Pass discount in North America: expect a fix by Tuesday the 24th!





Thank you all so much for your support, and have fun with Pinball Arcade on PS4.
 

PS Plus: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Free for Members

50°
17w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer announced that Sonic & All-Stars Racing will be transformed free for PS Plus members as part of this weeks updates below.

To quote: This week, PlayStation Plus members can take to an ever-changing race track when Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed enters the Instant Game Collection.

The 'transformed' part references the fact that your go kart isn't always cemented to the pavement - if your route should all of a sudden require your little kart to, say, fly, it will. Yep, your vehicle is constantly morphing back and forth between kart, plane and boat, so you'll have to master each type if you want to win.

You can download Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and take advantage of all these PS Plus discounts after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 12/24.
