SOMA Update, New Trailer: Crafting Survival Horror on PS4

50°
6w 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....
 

Video: Killzone Shadow Fall on PS4: New PlayStation 4 Story Trailer

26w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Poria Torkan shared a new PlayStation 4 ttory trailer video showcasing Killzone Shadow Fall on PS4 below.

To quote: To what lengths would you go to defend your home?

That's the central question in this brand-new story trailer for Killzone Shadow Fall. On planet Vekta, where rival Helghast and Vektan factions are living side by side under an uneasy truce, the answer depends entirely on who you ask.

To Chancellor Visari, leader of the displaced Helghast people, the Vektans are aggressors that must be kept in check by whatever means necessary. To Vektan Security Agency Director Sinclair, the biggest threat to peace is the very presence of the Helghast people.

Sinclair and Visari aren't the only ones at odds over their plans for planet Vekta. Behind the scenes, forces within each faction have begun warring and conspiring to further their own agendas. Some, like the extremist splinter group Black Hand, want to force an all-out civil war.

Others, like Helghast intelligence operative Echo, are desperately trying to prevent it. As Shadow Marshal Lucas Kellan, you must deal with the escalating hostilities before they envelop the entire planet - but you'll quickly discover that trust is a scarce resource on Vekta.

33w ago - Today R*Q at RockStar debuted the official Grand Theft Auto V PlayStation 3 TV trailer with details below!

To quote: Los Santos: a sprawling, sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets, and fading celebrities. Once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV.

Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success. Franklin, a street hustler looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance for a cheap high and the next big score.

Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.





Despire recently being leaked on PSN, Grand Theft Auto V officially launches September 17th, 2013.

50°
45w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford has posted up a new video trailer today for Tearaway on PlayStation Vita from E3 2013 below.

To quote: As is customary at this time of year, a squadron of highly trained Molecules has been sent forth from the safety of Mm Towers in the UK, to the familiar walls of the LA Convention Center where E3 is held each year.

Yes, the Molecules are in town for E3, and we've brought Tearaway with us so we can show it to as many people as we possibly can.

With a bit of luck, and some big smiles, those people will go on to share their experiences with the rest of the world, so you should see some previews across the internet over the next few days. We were also lucky to be included in this year's press conference, so look out for Rex playing Tearaway - he's been practicing all week, bless.

If you can't wait that long and need a Tearaway pick-me-up right this very second, then stay put, ready your eyes and ears, and prepare for your mouth to fall agape. We've got exactly what you need - a brand new trailer for Tearaway! See below.

Video: Reveal PlayStation 4 / PS4 E3 2013 Trailer, Confirmed Fake

250°
49w ago - Earlier today a purported PlayStation 4 / PS4 E3 2013 trailer went viral on YouTube, and has since been confirmed as a fake by Sony.

Below are the details via Kotaku (linked above) alongside the PlayStation 4 / PS4 trailer for those who missed it:

That Cool 'PS4 Teaser' Is A Fake, Sony Says - Whoever made this clip wants you to believe it’s the first look at the PlayStation 4 hardware. But, Sony tells me it's a fake. Too bad.

Nevertheless, I wouldn't blame someone just wandering over onto the Internet for guessing it wasn't. Let's consider the footage, shall we? Sure, E3 is right around the corner and the super-slick 44-second video seems like it might be the work of a professional creative shop.

The facial reaction shots are intercut with looks at an already-announced PS4 game - Infamous: Second Son, in case it's not clear - and hardware but the images and video in those segments are readily available all over the Web. And the supposed hardware could be one of the many fan-made renders that are jostling for attention on the Internet.

Granted, this could be the work of MOFILM, the firm that Sony recently hired to handle crowd-sourced advertising. As good as it looks, it almost certainly be the work of a dedicated fan looking to capitalize on the excitement leading...
