Dust 514: Uprising May 6th, Skill System Upgrade Detailed By CCP

50°
72w ago - CCP Games Praetorian Creative Director Atli Mar Sveinsson announced today that Dust 514: Uprising arrives on May 6th, and has detailed the skill system upgrade below as follows:

With the help of our players, we at CCP have learned a great deal throughout last year of DUST 514's beta period, especially with regard to the system at the core of your character's advancement and progression: the skill system.

Most importantly, we've gained an understanding of how you are using the items to advance through the game. This is all thanks to the terrific amount of player feedback we've received during the beta period.

As we started work on re-aligning the progression tree for the new Uprising build of DUST 514, set for release on May 6th, we realized that trying to map the new skills, bonuses and requirements to your existing items was not only complicated on the technical side, but also likely unfair to you.

You may have committed to a certain play style, and with an overhauled layout and collection of skills, you may find yourself regretting some of your prior choices. We have thus decided that it is far better to re-spec not only the skills but items as well.

In short, you will get your skill points (SP) back and the ISK and AUR (in-game currencies) value of any...
 

Urban Trial Freestyle PS3: Customization and Challenges Detailed

50°
81w ago - Tate Interactive GM Wojtek Bilinski has outlined Urban Trial Freestyle PS3 and PS Vita customization and challenge details today.

To quote: One of the really cool features in Urban Trial Freestyle for PS Vita and PS3 is the ability to customize your motorbike - but it's more than just picking out shiny new parts.

Bike customization is a key factor that directly affects your performance in both the Stunt and Time Attack Modes. Bike Customization allows you to adjust your bike to best meet the conditions on each of the available tracks.

Urban Trial Freestyle provides you with three main bike components to customize your vehicle - engine, chassis and wheels - customizing these parts influences three main parameters: speed, acceleration and handling.

As you advance and unlock more parts, you will ultimately have four engines, four pairs of wheels and four chassis to choose from, giving you altogether a possible of 64 combinations.

If you maximize the speed parameter, you will compromise balance (along with more rigid chassis), so you will perform better in Stunts like Highest or Longest Jump but worse in Flip Meter. When you want to beat a particular Stunt record, the choice is pretty simple and you would focus on one or two factors.

For Highest...
 

Video: Step Up to the Plate: MLB '13 The Show Hitting Enhancements

50°
83w ago - Sony Community Manager Ramone Russell at San Diego Studios has shared a video today spotlighting the hitting enhancements in MLB '13 The Show for PS3 today.

To quote: Hitting is such an important aspect in baseball, and it's an area we continually strive to make as realistic as possible. Last year we introduced our True Ball Physics engine to the franchise for ultra-realistic ball physics.

This year we've done even more work to really make this area of the game as dynamic as possible with true to life outcomes. Take a look at what we've done to make hitting in MLB '13 The Show more accessible to everyone.

We really want to make hitting more streamlined for players. Beginner mode allows people who have never played The Show - or have struggled with it - to learn the fundamentals of hitting. It's meant to teach you the basics of Plate Discipline, Pitch Recognition and Timing.





This mode uses adaptive A.I. that only advances as you do. If you take longer to get the hang of hitting in The Show, you won't be forced to advance. The A.I. will only advance once you've passed a certain threshold at each level.

In regards to the Push/Pull hitting Trajectories Engine, [Register or Login to view links]...
 

Video: DmC: Devil May Cry Demo, PlayStation 3 DLC is Detailed

500°
93w ago - Ninja Theory Communications Manager Dominic Matthews has detailed DmC: Devil May Cry demo PlayStation 3 DLC complete with a video trailer below!

To quote: Hello, Dominic Matthews here from Ninja Theory bringing you an update on DmC: Devil May Cry.

First off, I want to tell you about some DmC add-on content that we just announced. Called Vergil's Downfall, it features six brand new missions, in new environments where you play as Dante's twin brother Vergil.

Vergil has his own unique combat system (if you know Vergil from the previous games you'll recognize some of his signature moves) and the story, which is intertwined with the events of the main game, takes place in Vergil's very own personal hell. Lovely!

You'll also get to take on new enemies and upgrade Vergil's combat as you play. Once you've completed all the new missions you'll have four new difficulty modes to unlock including Son of Sparda and Vergil Must Die, both of which feature unique enemy waves and enemy behaviours that are different from those in the three default difficulty settings.





The reason that we're telling you about this add-on content before the main game is even out is not because it's finished (because it's not,...
 

Videos: Need for Speed Most Wanted Detailed for PS3 and PS Vita

350°
98w ago - Criterion Games Community Manager Jeremy Chubb has shared details today alongside some video footage on Need for Speed Most Wanted for the PS3 and PS Vita consoles.

To quote: We've been working hard on Need for Speed Most Wanted, our second Need for Speed game after 2011's Hot Pursuit.

I'm pleased to tell you that we've just put the finishing touches on the game, and we're winding up the online servers to take a beating from you guys come launch day - October 30th.

It's a pretty exciting time for PlayStation fans, and we're really excited to be able to talk not just about the PS3 game, but also our first for PS Vita. If you don't know anything about Most Wanted, here's the deal.

[Register or Login to view links] was our favorite Need for Speed game. We loved the epic cop chases, hot cars, and most of all that unbeatable sensation of fast, reckless driving while on the run from the law.

So after finishing Hot Pursuit, we set out to create a game that brought you all these great elements, but fresh for 2012 and with a little [Register or Login to view links] DNA running through it. That means it had to be about online, friends and competition, with a Most Wanted twist.
