Sony Details First 2 Hours of Child of Light PS4 on PlayStation 4

100°
26w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements detailed the first two hours of Child of Light PS4 on PlayStation 4 below today.

To quote: Before a crumbling statue in a dark wood, Aurora faces her first enemy in Child of Light. As it screeches in the little girls' direction, she hefts her oversized sword into the air with supreme confidence.

She's unfazed by its arachnid frame and menacing gait. This encounter depicts Child of Light in its purest form: unflinching, beautiful, and defiant of expectations. It's a PS3 and PS4 RPG that celebrates the RPG tradition while striking out on a new path, wholly its own.

When I first wrote about Child of Light last year, Aurora had already embarked on her adventure through the enchanting world of Lemuria.

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to play the opening two hours, uninterrupted. The result: an unassailable emotional connection to Aurora and her quest. The team at Ubisoft Montreal has crafted a heart-rending story, steeped in detail and welcoming to young gamers as well as old.

Aurora's arrival in Lemuria is immediately tragic. Daughter to an Austrian duke, the young girl falls ill and wakes in...

Sony Details the 19 Classes of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

100°
29w ago - Square Enix Community Project Manager Hergen Thaens detailed the 19 classes of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn for PS4 fans today.

To quote: Welcome to another update on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn - the biggest one so far. A lot of you have probably played the first beta phase from February 22nd to March 3rd - barely enough time to get your hands on one or two classes in a single city, right? Well then, let's introduce you to the others!

You're free to start in any of the three cities: Gridania, Ul'dah, or Limsa Lominsa. Most of you will want to get used to the game first, so you can play solo and get acquainted with everything.

Up until level 15, you've got tons of local quests and adventures that await you - and from level 15 onwards, the whole world opens up to you as you get access to the airship and the other cities.

If you want to play with your friends, you simply have to choose classes with the same starting cities, and you can group up right away.

Once you've acquired a class, you can change to it at any given time (outside of combat and dungeons) by simply equipping the weapon associated with it. It's that simple!

So, let's get started, shall we?

Gridania, One with the Forest

Gridania lies in the...
 

Spry Fox Details Road Not Taken for PS4 and PlayStation Vita

31w ago - Spry Fox Chief Creative Officer Daniel Cook detailed Road Not Taken for PS4 and PlayStation Vita for fans today.

To quote: This post is about Road Not Taken, Spry Fox's upcoming roguelike for PS4 & PS Vita. If this is your first time hearing about RNT, check out our trailers [Register or Login to view links]!

As we've mentioned in previous blog posts, Road Not Taken has procedurally-generated levels. That is, you get a completely new experience every time you venture into the forest.

When designing a game like [Register or Login to view links] or God of War, a designer must hand-select the placement of every corridor, every object, and every enemy in the game.

With Road Not Taken, we're not hand-selecting anything. We spend our time creating interesting objects and enemies, and then carefully defining the probabilities of when and where you will encounter them.

The process reminds me of Duchamp's painting 'Nude descending a Staircase, No. 2'. For thousands of years, humanity painted a single instant, captured in time. Duchamp, inspired by advances in motion pictures, decided to paint all the possible states of a woman walking down the stairs in a single painting.

To me, designing a roguelike is...
 

The Order on PS4: New PlayStation 4 Trailer, Story Details Revealed

100°
32w ago - Ready At Dawn Studios CEO and Creative Director Ru Weerasuriya shared a new PlayStation 4 trailer and revealed story details for The Order on PS4 today.

To quote: Over the past few months, we shared with you our vision of a Neo-Victorian London in The Order: 1886, an alternate version of human history filled with mystery and advances in technology that take center stage in an age-old war.

This conflict that started centuries ago pitted mankind against half-breeds in a battle for survival. This became the catalyst for the noblest warriors of their time to come together in an alliance, an Order that waged war and held the line for hundreds of years.

Through the centuries, their vigil has kept humanity safe and the war in a status quo while The Order's members remained hidden behind history and legend.

But everything changes with the advent of the Industrial Revolution. The tide of war shifts as the Knights finally bring the battle to the half-breeds with the help of new weaponry.

But with progress comes civil unrest and rebellion, by the very people they have sworn to protect. Oppressed by what they perceive to be a dictatorship, the Rebellion rises out of the streets of Whitechapel and quickly prove themselves a dangerous foe, taking up arms against the...
