122w ago - Game Director Todd Papy has revealed a fresh video of God of War: Ascension PS3 Multiplayer Beta at Gamescom 2012 today!

To quote: God of War fans, it's Game Director Todd Papy again with the latest and greatest on God of War: Ascension.

If you saw the on-stage [Register or Login to view links] of our new epic single-player journey at E3, then you're well aware Kratos will be as bad-ass as ever when Ascension hits stores on March 12, 2013.

However, today I'm here to talk more about our ambitious multiplayer mode, a multiplayer experience we are confident will be worthy of the title, God of War.

Back on April 30th, I gave you an in-depth look at how our new multiplayer-mode works, combining the visceral combat and brutal finishing kills from single-player with an intense and fresh online 4v4 competitive mode.

I'm excited to announce today that we will be launching a global multiplayer beta in the near future, available exclusively first to PlayStation Plus subscribers (there may a few other secret inroads).

It's critical to our team that we receive as much community feedback to tune and prime our multiplayer mode for one of the best experiences possible, come launch this March.

Here's a brand-new multiplayer trailer...

122w ago - Sony PlayStation Network Director of Marketing Brandon Stander has announced today that PS Plus is coming to PS Vita alongside news that the Online Game Save Storage is being upgraded!

To quote: Since its inception, PlayStation Plus has delivered a strong value to PlayStation gamers. We've been keeping our ears to the ground and asking Plus members "What would you like to see added to PlayStation Plus?"

Today, I'm happy to share the news that was announced at Gamescom: PlayStation Plus is coming to PS Vita this year, and Online Game Saves are getting a giant upgrade in September.

We will also deliver PlayStation Plus, which is currently available for PS3 users, to PS Vita users this year. By purchasing a membership to PlayStation Plus, PS Vita users will be able to enjoy various services which will become available exclusively for members.

Additionally, we're upgrading Online Game Save Storage. Previously, Online Game Saves offered up to 150MB of game save data storage in the cloud for PlayStation 3. With this update, Plus members will get to store up to 1GB of game save data. This means you'll never have to worry about running out of space for your game save files!

We love hearing feedback from the community, so please share your thoughts with us in the comments...
 

IO Interactive Unveils Hitman: Absolution PS3 - Contracts Mode

50°
122w ago - IO Interactive Community Manager Nick Price has unveiled the Contracts Mode in upcoming PS3 video game title Hitman: Absolution today.

To quote: One of the best things about working with a vibrant and productive community, such as the one attached to the [Register or Login to view links] games, is that you can learn a lot by just watching people play.

Going back to the previous games in the Hitman series, we've always enjoyed watching videos of how the fans tackle the different levels; both in terms of strategy and approach to the emergent systems within the game but also in terms of how they change the rules by going against the core of the level.

A great example is when we see people trying to set up mission parameters all by themselves. The previous games didn't really support this - you were supposed to play a level in one of several different ways but targets always remained the same - but the fans pretty quickly started setting up conditions for completion themselves.

Kill everyone with a particular weapon. Don't get spotted by anyone. Only wear the chicken outfit. Kill that waiter in the bar at the Meat King's party.

Sometimes these conditions would be extremely hard to fulfill but equally satisfying when they did get completed. So for...
