13h ago - Sony's Tom Wallis revealed details today on how real-life conflict inspired Far Cry 4 for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 platforms.

Set in the fictional Himalayan country of Kyrat, this nation torn apart by war draws heavily from real-world locations to make the game feel authentic.

We caught up with Mark Thompson, narrative director, and Alex Hutchinson, creative director, to find out how visiting Nepal to meet people who actually fought in the civil war helped to inspire the development of Far Cry 4.

"One of the first things we did was to write down a list of different animals to include in the game," Mark told us when we met up with the team at Ubisoft recently in Montreal.

"We also made a list of environment features we wanted. From that we looked at locations where the two would make sense, and we came to the Himalayas. We needed to find somewhere that had a history of conflict - somewhere that could be politically unstable - the kind of place that you would go to that was on the edge of the map. Places that are referred to as 'failed states.'"

We cornered creative director, Raul Rubio Munarriz, and cracked out the thumb screws to bring you every hidden detail you almost certainly will have missed.





1. Stranded (0.21)

"In the beginning you are stranded on this island and have no purpose. You are on the island, you have left your home and you don't know why."

2. Helpful critters (0.23)

"But suddenly you'll see something that shouldn't be there. The animals around you are going to help to varying degrees, here you can see the seagulls flying in one direction - they'll try to act as a guide and circle points of interest to help you out."

Sony on Facing the Challenge in Lords of the Fallen on PlayStation 4

2d ago - Sony Online Content Producer Rhys Sutheran outlined some of the challenges PS4 fans will face in Lords of the Fallen on PlayStation 4 today.

To quote: "Do you like challenging games?"

So begins my first step into the demonic realm of the Fallen God - chief antagonist in Thomasz Gop and CI Games' forthcoming fantasy RPG, Lords of the Fallen on PS4.

In answer to that - still bearing the scars of endless Dark Souls re-starts - yes, I do like a challenge. Thomasz's jovial reply isn't exactly encouraging. "That's good! But you're still gonna die... a lot."

He's certainly not wrong. As executive producer in the small creative team at Poland's CI Games, Thomasz's friendly demeanor hides the dark heart of the man responsible for the most brutal, punishing, yet immensely satisfying fantasy RPG to make its way to PlayStation 4 so far.

I sat down with Thomasz at Gamescom 2014 to get hands-on with Lords of the Fallen's "second dimension," an alternate realm that the game's protagonist - and prolific sinner - Harkin will journey back and forth from throughout his blood-soaked quest.

"It's an important point in the game," Thomasz says as I face the first of the sword-wielding brutes blocking my path. "Learning more about both realms guides the player towards...

5d ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here with this weeks new PlayStation and PSN game releases below, as follows:

Dark fantasy quests and Cold War operations join together in a massive week of gaming, with tons of new games joining the PlayStation family this Tuesday.

Malthael, the Angel of Death, has invaded the world of Sanctuary in Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition on PS4 and PS3. Wade into battle with the new Crusader class, and tackle Act V in one of the most iconic action RPGs in gaming history.

Uncover legendary loot, unlock powerful spells, equip awe-inspiring weaponry, and horde mountains of gold in Blizzard's latest chapter in the Diablo series. And for those that already began a quest on the original Diablo III on PS3, carry over hero progress into Reaper of Souls without missing a step.

But that's just the beginning. Keep the world's super powers at bay in Counterspy - a stylized action game set in the Cold War - on PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. Infiltrate enemy positions, use wit and cunning, and keep the governments of the world from tearing each other to pieces.

For a complete list of games coming to PlayStation this week, read on. And enjoy the Drop!
