Bringing Killzone Shadow Fall Heroine Echo to Life - PS4 Interview

50°
5w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton shared a PS4 interview today on bringing the Killzone Shadow Fall Heroine Echo to life below.

To quote: One of the most pleasant surprises of E3 week earlier this month was bumping into Jamie Gray Hyder in the halls. Killzone fans should find that name familiar - she played one of Shadow Fall's stand-out characters: half-Vektan/half-Helghast intelligence operative Echo.

With co-op expansion Intercept out this week on PS4, we took the opportunity to sit down for a quick chat with the actress (who you might also recognize from her time on True Blood, as werewolf Danielle) and Game Director Steven ter Heide.

How did you first get involved with Killzone Shadow Fall?

Jamie Gray Hyder: I auditioned like I would for film or TV. I did my scene knowing I needed to focus on physicality - they called me back and it turned out we were on the same page about what Echo was going to be, so we got to work.

Steven ter Heide: The filming was out in LA and the director we hooked up with said, "We've had this amazing performance. Unfortunately she's under the weather but she really wants the part and we think she's perfect."

The character is strong - she has to stand up to the protagonist, but at the same time needs...

7w ago - Sony VP of Platforms Marketing John Koller announced at E3 2014 today that several new free-to-play titles are coming to PlayStation!

Below are all the details, to quote: We firmly believe that the best game development ideas can come from anywhere and anyone, and as the brand that stands for gamers, we want to make it easy for gamers to step outside of their comfort zones and experience these new types of games.

Tonight at our E3 Press Conference, we announced more good news for gamers: with the help of our amazing Worldwide Studios team and third-party partners, PlayStation is introducing a robust catalogue of Free-to-Play (F2P) games with a goal of offering more ways for gamers to discover and connect with a larger variety of titles and experiences.

The PlayStation F2P initiative will give gamers the opportunity to try a variety of games that they may have not otherwise played, at no cost or financial commitment. We'll leave it up to you, the gamer, to decide how much you want to invest in the game.

The development community was central to PS4 platform development and ultimately has helped us create an expansive library of unique experiences. The F2P initiative is another testament to what makes PlayStation a leader in the industry. From Triple-A blockbusters like...
 

Reaper is Coming to PlayStation Vita as Free-to-Play Action RPG

50°
8w ago - Creative Director Luc Bernard announced today alongside a PlayStation Vita video trailer that Reaper is coming to PS Vita as a free-to-play action RPG!

To quote: Hello, I'm Luc Bernard. I'm the creative director, and art director, and - well - I look after many other roles on Reaper for PS Vita. Now this is my first time doing a post on Playstation.Blog, so it may sound a bit all over the place!

I don't know if anyone remembers, but years ago Reaper was announced back in 2010 for Playstation Portable. The title had to be put on hold for a while sadly, but now it's back. I'd say it's a great thing that I waited this long to resume development and show it to the world.

Reaper is a free-to-play title exclusive to PlayStation Vita. Personally the Vita is my favorite portable system for many reasons, which I don't think I need to go into since you Vita owners already know them.





Now let's talk about the gameplay. Reaper is an action RPG platformer, so you'll be leveling up, pulling off combos, destroying enemies, and all those kind of things.

But what makes it unique is the card system. Now don't worry, it's not like those mobile games that have cards where you can't do anything with them -...
