Video: New Velocity 2X PS4 / PS Vita Trailer Update: So Far, So Good

50°
10w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden is here with a new Velocity 2X PS4 / PS Vita trailer update which he states is coming along so far, so good!

To quote: Hi folks. Today I'm here to reveal a brand new video showing alpha footage of Velocity 2X; to talk through some of the things we've been working towards; and to outline what we're going to be adding next!

First, the video:





It's starting to look the part, but there's still a lot to do. The major thing left to do is improve the animation on the player character Lt. Kai Tana. We're working on that right now.

The art style

One of the major influences for Velocity 2X was the art style of Flashback on the Amiga. For those of you too young to have played Flashback (poor you, play the original!), it was a stunning visual achievement, using rotoscoped animation and a simple yet stylish art style to create a highly atmospheric experience. 12-year-old me fell in love with it.

Artistically speaking, we wanted Velocity 2X to be the spiritual successor to Flashback (and indeed Another World), and also to create a level of atmosphere and production value that is rarely seen in 2D games.

To quote: Hi Everyone. Amongst all the excitement for the launch of PS4 and, of course, Killzone Shadowfall, here at Guerrilla Cambridge we've still been busily working away on Killzone Mercenary. We're now very pleased to announce that there will be a number of updates coming over the next few months.

First up is Update 3. In terms of functionality there will only be minimal changes, but this is the patch that reduces the size of the other patches! After installing this patch it will free up around 800MB of space for those who have already installed Updates 1 & 2. Update 3 should be ready in the next few weeks.

Update 4 is due in January and is being designed to improve Matching and to help reduce join-game connectivity problems, as well as adding an auto team-rebalancing feature.

Following that is the big one: Update 5. Two new multiplayer maps for FREE, and the release of offline Botzone for Mercenary and Guerrilla Warfare modes.

Also in the first few months of 2014 will be Update 6, in which we're working towards continued refinements and adding support for playing Killzone Mercenary on Vita TV (only applicable...
