Sony Details How the World Cup Influenced FIFA 15 on PS4

50°
5w ago - Sony Content Producer Tom Wallis detailed how the World Cup influenced FIFA 15 on PS4 today for PlayStation 4 fans below.

To quote: "We picked the winner of the Brazil World Cup with our simulation."

It's a lofty claim to make, but one that Nick Channon, Senior Producer on [Register or Login to view links], doesn't make lightly.

"We do a simulation every year and we actually, before the tournament, picked Germany. I'm not sure too many people agreed with us. A lot of people were looking at Argentina or Brazil as the favorites."

When talking to Nick backstage at Gamescom this year, talk inevitably kept returning to this summer's footballing extravaganza over in Brazil and perhaps unsurprisingly, it becomes clear that the tournament had an impact on how the final game is turning out.

One area in particular - goalkeepers - came in for special attention as the tournament wound to its conclusion.

"It felt for a lot of the World Cup that the standout position was the goalkeeper," explains Nick.

"Tim Howard from the USA had the record for the most saves in a game. That was something we didn't see coming - just how the World Cup became a story of the...
 

Video: Open-world Winter Sports Game SNOW is Coming to PS4

7w ago - Poppermost Productions CEO and Game Director Alexander Bergendahl shared a video today announcing that open-world Winter Sports game SNOW is coming to PS4.

Below are the details, to quote: My name is Alexander Bergendahl and I am the CEO and Game Director of Poppermost Productions, an indie studio from Stockholm, Sweden.

Poppermost was formed in 2012 and we have quickly grown from a team of three into a team of 10, thanks largely to the success of our first title, SNOW, on PC. Today, we couldn't be more excited to announce that SNOW will be released as a console exclusive on PS4.

With diverse employee experience in modding, AAA and indie development, Poppermost was formed to create something different.

With SNOW, our goal is to build the world's first free-to-play, open world, winter sports experience - a game that never restricts the player, but instead empowers them to play however they want.





Most of the Poppermost team grew up skiing and snowboarding during winter holidays, so we wanted to create a game that really captured the rush of speeding down the mountain, the tranquility of being in nature, and the creativity of executing tricks in the park and backcountry.

28w ago - Head of Heart Machine Alex Preston shared a video on creating the world of Hyper Light Drifter on PS4 and PS Vita below.

To quote: In [Register or Login to view links] you'll travel a ruined land with a twisted past, delving deep to collect lost technologies and unveil secrets long buried.

I'd like to share a few of the key components under development that make Hyper Light what it is: 1) combat that's lightning quick, brutal and never unfair; 2) a strong narrative and character interactions expressed through visual design; 3) a rich and varied world to explore with an intense atmosphere.

Combat

At [Register or Login to view links] we're all fans of fast, heavy­-hitting combat that requires skill and rewards a bit of finesse. To hell with bullet­sponges, witless drones and unfair scenarios.

We spend a great deal of time tuning our systems, ­adding meaningful feedback in the controls, visuals, and audio design ­so they feel responsive and satisfying each time you lop an enemy in half, blow something up, or wipe out entire packs of ravenous creatures.

Each enemy reacts to strikes with visible knockback, flashes, and brutal sound effects. No weak or shoddy weapons (I'm looking...
