SOMA Update, New Trailer: Crafting Survival Horror on PS4

50°
7w ago - Frictional Games Creative Director Thomas Grip is here with a SOMA update including a new trailer spotlighting the crafting of survival horror on PS4 below.

To quote: Time for a little update on how SOMA is doing. (A brief summary for those who don't already know: SOMA is a sci-fi horror game from the creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descent that will tackle unsettling questions about consciousness. It will be released on PS4 in 2015.)

Before I get started, I should say a few words about the new teaser trailer, "Theta". This video showcases a few in-game scenes along with fresh voice work. Our hope is to give you a taste of the feel and atmosphere that SOMA will have. It also contains a few clues on what the game's story will be about.

SOMA's current status

We are currently about a week away from the alpha of the game. This is a build in which a bit more than half of the full game is playable. It's currently clocking in at around 5 hours, meaning the final game will end up at 8 hours or so.





A game like SOMA is a bit different to have in alpha than most other games. Normally, a game relies on a core mechanic that creates the basic engagement....

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.

24w ago - Tribute Games Writer Yannick Belzil posted up a video today announcing Mercenary Kings is coming this Winter to PS4.

To quote: It's great for us at Tribute Games to be back at the ol' Playstation.Blog. Ah, has it been that long since our hotly commented post (16 scorching comments!) back in the summer of 2013?

We're simply thrilled to be part of Sony's indie line-up for PS4. Having been a part of the E3 presentation is still a big deal to us.

If you don't know us at Tribute Games, we're an indie developer way up in Montreal, Canada. We create classic-looking games with modern twists - in this case here, Mercenary Kings, which looks like a nice, old-fashioned, run-and-gun platformer from the bygone '80s and '90s... but it's actually ENHANCED with a deep weapon and item crafting system!

You can try to make your way and destroy C.L.A.W. (Cyber Loyalists Active Weapon) clan with your regular pistol, but as you progress through Mandragora Island and pick up materials, almost every character back at your HQ offers huge crafting possibilities. There are more than 300 gun parts to mix and match.





You could enhance your weapon's magazine capacity, or forge an elemental blade that can freeze your...
