Video: The Unlikely Hero of Styx: Master of Shadows on PS4

50°
6w ago - Game Director Julien Desourteaux posted up a video today spotlighting the unlikely hero of Styx: Master of Shadows on PS4 below.

To quote: Styx: Master of Shadows is a stealth game set in a dark, mature, fantasy universe. Our goal was to return to the roots of the genre and revisit it through a unique character: Styx - a nimble, sneaky, sarcastic goblin.

We want to offer a real challenge to the player, with a game requiring strategy and reflection. Players really have to take care of many details to progress in a level. But to make things fair, players have powerful tools at their disposal that they'll have to use wisely.





Who is Styx?

Fragile and far removed from the brute hero that kicks butt, our goblin is a skillful assassin that excels at hiding.

Obsessed with the Amber, Styx would do absolutely anything to reach the source of this substance - the Heart of the Tree. Extremely cunning, he'll always find a solution to achieve this objective, by whatever means necessary.

What is Amber?

The Amber - a powerful and rare substance - gives Styx a wide array of magical powers, such as invisibility, enhanced senses, or even the ability to summon and control...

Video: Contrast on PS4 / PlayStation 4: Is There Truth In the Shadows?

50°
63w ago - Compulsion Games developer Guillaume Provost shared a video today spotlighting Contrast on PS4 / PlayStation 4 dubbed Is There Truth In the Shadows below.

To quote: I can attest that some of what you're about to read is actually true, but how can a developer who has spent so much time hiding in the shadows be trusted to write a traditional blog post?

Indeed. He can't. But I digress. You want to know more about Contrast, and I want to shed light on a few topics of my own. Did you know that Contrast, in its initial concept, was set in a cyberpunk virtual world?

We thought that related well with the Film Noir and Burlesque eras, too. Have you heard tell of the international slumber party work week before Compulsion found an office? When we started working on the game, the team was spread out across four continents!

Being an indie game developer is no easy ride, but all those tuna-salad days have helped fuel something amazing - as we all clung to that early magical love affair with an idea so fascinating that it just HAD to become something special.

You see, at Compulsion, we have the benefit of a small but capable team. I'd call them talented, but they let the smallest compliments go to their heads. Have I told you about the overt and subtle themes found...
 

Video: Splinter Cell Blacklist PS3 Trailer Emerges From the Shadows

50°
70w ago - Community Developer Zack Cooper shared a video trailer today unveiling Splinter Cell Blacklist emerges from the shadows on the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: I'm stoked to speak with you guys about our latest trailer for Blacklist, which we're calling "Stalk. Strike. Silence." If you're a Splinter Cell fan, you know that there's a rich history to the franchise.

The idea behind Blacklist is to embrace those roots by bringing back most of the core elements and merging them with the advanced gameplay and graphical evolution of the more recent Splinter Cell games.

We're also bringing back that sweet, dark, geopolitical drama that Tom Clancy fans are familiar with. In Splinter Cell Blacklist, the high-level storyline centers on a group of rogue nations coming together to create an ultimatum; they've had enough of the American occupancy on their land. This collective institutes a countdown, warning the United States to back off... or else.

That 'or else' involves specific threats to American interests. That's where Sam Fisher, now the leader of his newly formed Fourth Echelon unit, their mobile command center, the Paladin, and the classic Splinter Cell globetrotting come into play.

Looking at this trailer in particular, we wanted to re-establish Sam for both...
 

Hitman: HD Trilogy Steps Out of the Shadows and Onto PS3

50°
82w ago - IO Interactive Studio Communications Manager Nick Price has announced today that Hitman: HD Trilogy is stepping out of the shadows and onto PS3!

To quote: The release of Hitman: HD Trilogy today on PS3 and PlayStation Network brings Hitman: Blood Money onto the PlayStation format for the first time. With it come two additional classic Hitman games - Silent Assassin and Contracts.

More than anything else [Register or Login to view links] has created in the past decade and a half, Hitman has been the defining series for the studio. Five titles in the franchise have been released in the last 12 years, across most AAA platforms available within the same time period.

The combination of the assassin fantasy, game mechanics and freedom of choice makes the Hitman series the most original set of games we have made at IO. Nobody had ever really seen a game like Hitman before – not even the developers who were about to create it.

It was a game about a stone-cold killer, but with tongue-in-cheek humor to balance the very mature themes in the game. As Tore Blystad, Game Director on Hitman: Absolution, says: "When dealing with such a dark topic ... you need something in there to compensate, to make it less cynical.

In the start of Absolution development we tried...
