Far Cry 4 PS4: Keys to Kyrat and Share Play Differences Explained

500°
6w ago - Sony Developer and Publisher Relations Vice President Adam Boyes outlined the Keys to Kyrat and explained the Share Play differences for Far Cry 4 on PS4 today.

To quote: Since the announcement of PlayStation 4 in 2013, one of the key pillars of the system has been its unique social features.

Of course, social interaction was built into the very foundation of the system, with features including DualShock 4′s Share button to easily share gameplay images and videos on social networks, the ability to live broadcast to Twitch or Ustream, and more recently Share Play (check out our walkthrough here in case you're not up to speed).





We're always looking for ways to expand PS4's social features, which is why I'm so excited about our partnership with Ubisoft on Far Cry 4. As I discussed during our E3 2014 press conference, Far Cry 4 on PlayStation has an exclusive mode called Keys to Kyrat.

Anyone who buys Far Cry 4 on PS4 or PS3 will receive 10 keys to send to your PSN friends, letting them join you in Kyrat for a free two-hour trial period, even if they don't own a copy of the game. As an added bonus, your friends will get a currency boost for playing the trial if they end up purchasing the full...
 

Why Share Play is Blocked for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PS4

550°
7w ago - Following up on the recent CoD: AW DLC Unlocker, today Activision explained why Share Play (which has been available since PS4 Firmware 2.00) is currently blocked for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PS4.

To quote from GameZone: "Share Play is a new feature that was introduced as part of the recent PS4 firmware 2.00 update.

Our engineers didn't have access to it before it launched, so we haven't had a chance to evaluate it to see how it will impact the experience across all modes of play," Activision told us.

"Of course we wouldn't include a feature in our game without having the chance to test it. Once we've fully analyzed its performance, we'll determine how to support it going forward."

9w ago - PlayStation Public Relations guru Andrew Kelly invites fans to check out Share Play PS4 in action today on PlayStation 4 in a video below.

To quote: The PS4 system software update v2.00, codenamed Masamune, will be available to download on Tuesday, October 28th.

One of the features included in the update that I'm most excited about is Share Play, and we put together a quick video to show you how this innovative feature works. Check it out!





As we've said before, the best way to think about Share Play is like a "virtual couch." PlayStation 4 will create an online local co-op experience by allowing you to invite a friend to join your game for up to one hour at a time - even when they don't own a copy of it. Share Play has three main functions:

• Share Screen - Share your screen with a friend, allowing them to spectate. This is ideal for PS4 owners that want to watch their friends play a game and provide helpful tips. PlayStation Plus is not required to use this.

• Hand over my controller - Pass your controller to a friend, virtually, and watch them play. Your...

10w ago - Following up on the PS4 Firmware 2.00 Preview and Webkit Bug Fix rumor, Sony has now shared additional details on PS4 Firmware 2.0 Masamune spotlighting Share Play and Music Player below.

To quote: "Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia shared quite a lot of information on the features coming with firmware 2.0 "Masamune," but quite a few more caveats have been mentioned on the [Register or Login to view links] site.

The Share Play feature, which is built into the party chat app, will also follow the rules below:

  • You can be in a Party with 8 people, but Share Play can be done only with one of them at the same time. The rest of the Party won't be able to see the screen, but will still be able to chat with host and guest.
  • When the host is visualizing any other screen than the game being shared, the guest is shown a "stand by" screen.
  • The Share Play time is limited to one hour, and the remaining time is visualized in the Party screen, but you can start a new...

20w ago - Following this weeks previous rumors, Sony Product Planning and Software Innovation Director Scott McCarthy shared official details today on the upcoming PS4 System Update to v2.00 which adds Share Play, YouTube and more features to come!

To quote: Since we first unveiled PlayStation 4 and its deep social capabilities, including the SHARE button, we've seen an outpouring of excitement from gamers.

The PS Nation has rallied around a culture focused on sharing epic gaming moments through Live From PlayStation, interactive streaming, SHAREfactory, What's New and Photo Mode in exclusive PS4 games like Infamous Second Son and The Last of Us Remastered. Let's go a step further together.

Let's go from sitting back and watching friends play to actually jumping into games remotely and sharing great experiences together in real time.

Today at the PlayStation press conference at Gamescom, we will deliver on yet another promise from the PS4 announcement and introduce Share Play, coming to PlayStation 4 later this fall.

The best way to think about Share Play is like a "virtual couch". PlayStation 4 will create an online local co-op experience by allowing...
