  2. Hello, my name is Erik Odeldahl. I am the Creative Director at Fast Travel Games, a VR games developer founded in 2016 by former creators of franchises such as Battlefield & Mirror’s Edge. Today is a historical day for me and the team, and we could not more thrilled: Our debut title Apex Construct, an action/adventure we have built from the ground up for virtual reality, is finally available for PlayStation VR. The game is set in a strange future where merciless robots prowl the world as a result of mankind’s reckless experiments. Using two Move controllers, with movement options like free locomotion or teleportation, players will need to explore this world to uncover its secrets while defending themselves from synthetic creatures, utilizing an upgradable bow, arrow & shield setup. Progressing through the story, players will gradually reveal what actually happened to the world they once knew – and what their role is in the drawn out conflict between two powerful AIs. Early on, we set out on a mission out to create a VR world that was both beautiful and perilous – a world which you want to stay in and marvel at, but at the same time be cautious about and have a sense of imminent threat. In the beginning of the game, the player returns to earth after having spent an unknown period of time in the Void, a limbo between dimensions. Upon re-entry, the player soon realizes that the world is now a very different place. An event called The Shift ripped it apart and immediately reassembled it, but the fragments ended up all over the place, like scattered pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Almost all human and animal life is now gone. How did this happen, and why? This is up to the player to figure out. While 50% of Apex Construct will be combat-focused, using bow, shield and arrows — which can all be upgraded by using Radiance Points earned by killing enemies or finding secrets — the other 50% will be about exploration and puzzle solving. You’ll travel to places like pre-apocalyptic research stations, underground caves and parts of an old city, and those who take their time to explore and interact with the environment will be rewarded. Thankfully, the player won’t have to do this alone. Accompanying you through the game is the voice of Fathr, an artificial intelligence from the time before the Shift. Fathr recruits the player into its fight against Mothr, another AI with an opposing view of how the world should function. These AIs seem to have been in conflict for a very long time, maybe even since before The Shift. Why? Get exploring today and hopefully you’ll find out! View the full article
  3. One week from now Elite Dangerous will change. Elite Dangerous: Beyond — Chapter One is the first of four free updates launching in 2018 focused on community-requested core changes to the overall experience of the game, together with fresh content for Commanders to experience as you explore the Milky Way. Last year PS4 players launched into Elite Dangerous’ massively multiplayer full-scale simulation of the Milky Way. Starting with a small spacecraft and a handful of credits, we want you to make your own way in the galaxy however you choose. Trade, fight, mine, explore, hunt, or just survive — the choice is yours. From the very beginning an important part of Elite Dangerous has been the feedback we receive from our community. Your actions influence the galaxy and the ongoing story, but it also changes the way we develop the game. Your feedback has shaped our third season of content updates, and that’s why we wanted to give it to all Elite Dangerous players for free. Beyond — Chapter One will launch February 27 with an automatic update for all Elite Dangerous owners. You’ll find lots of small changes we hope will improve the ways you choose to play, but here are some of the big things we’re most excited about everyone experiencing in Beyond — Chapter One. 1.) A fairer Open Play environment, and a challenging career for criminals with the new Crime and Punishment system. The Crime and Punishment system that balances criminality and the consequences that come with it is designed to make the galaxy more challenging for advanced players, more accessible for newer players, and more difficult for any Commander who likes to hunt weaker prey. Elite Dangerous can be played Solo, with friends in a Private Group or in Open Play where the galaxy is massively multiplayer and friendly fire is always on — but we know the Open Play experience can be as daunting as it is exciting. We’ve heard your feedback and implemented a series of changes that will make life difficult for criminals who prey on new players. We’re introducing “hot ships” to increase the consequences for seasoned lawbreakers, and we’re deploying a new Advanced Tactical Response unit to hunt for repeat offenders. We’ve also rebalanced the bounty system and added levels of notoriety to create a fairer PvP environment in the open galaxy. We think Open Play is the most exciting way to play Elite Dangerous, but we want to make it a fairer place to play, too. 2.) A choice of mission rewards. In Chapter One we’ll also be making changes to the mission reward system to give players more freedom and more tools to accomplish their goals. The new system will allow players to choose between three different sets of reward packages all of roughly equivalent value at the end of every mission. It’s another way we’re making the Elite Dangerous galaxy a place where you can really play your own way. 3.) Find the best deals with improved Trade Data. We’re boosting trade with more accessible Trade Data. It’s a big change affecting the way information about the commodities markets is made available, and helping space truckers find profitable routes without turning to guides. But the new Trade Data isn’t a “win button” for traders. You’ll have to explore the galaxy and add systems to your database before the info is accessible. The more systems you visit the greater the amount of trade data available when you’re looking to make some credits for that new ship, armor plate, or missile rack. 4.) Galnet Audio keeps you up to date. The Elite Dangerous galaxy is full of news and weird events. GalNet — the main source about important events taking place in the Milky Way — gets an upgrade in Beyond — Chapter One, making it easily accessible right from your ship’s HUD with GalNet Audio. The galaxy’s news moves fast, and GalNet Audio gives players a chance to listen to the latest updates and ongoing narrative while traversing the galaxy. The story updates daily based on player activity, and we want to give you a better chance to impact it. 5.) The introduction of the Chieftain. For Elite Dangerous Horizons owners, we’re introducing a new combat-focused ship: The Chieftain. This warship was created in response to the growing alien threat and is designed to bring heavy firepower to any alien encounter. Favoring weapons and maneuverability over armor means the Chieftain will be able to dish out a lot of damage but won’t be able to take much. It’s a fun ship to fly, but also a risky one! Beyond — Chapter One And the Beyond series doesn’t end here! Chapter One opens the new season, The following two updates will see the introduction of new content, while the last Chapter of the year will once again bring major operational changes to core systems of Elite Dangerous. We’re especially excited to introduce Squadrons — a new way for Commanders to manage their player groups and take part in community goals together. We’ve been listening to your feedback and we know Elite Dangerous wouldn’t be where it is today without you, so we’re thankful for your support and we hope you’ll join the players exploring, fighting, and trading across the Milky Way. Available for all Elite Dangerous and Elite Dangerous: Horizons owners, Elite Dangerous: Beyond Chapter One makes its way onto PlayStation 4 on February 27. View the full article

  5. Hey everyone, Thank you so much for your heartfelt support of Moss and the Polyarc team during these past months of development. From visiting our booths at places like PAX and Gamescom, to sending us feedback on social media after playing Moss on the PlayStation VR Demo Disc, your interest in our hero Quill and the world we’re building has been a great source of motivation during the homestretch. We’ve been looking forward to the day we’d finally be able to get the full game in your hands and I’m happy to announce that we now concretely know when that day will be. Next Tuesday, February 27, 2018, you’ll be able to enter the world of Moss through PlayStation VR and join Quill on her incredible journey. To celebrate this announcement, we’ve also released the Moss launch trailer which provides a glimpse of Quill’s story, more gameplay, and some of the fantastic places you’ll travel with her. We hope this latest preview of Moss conveys what we set out to do: make a game that everyone can enjoy—early VR adopters, casual gamers, and truly, anyone looking for an exciting new experience. As I talked about last June in my PlayStation.Blog post during E3 2017, our aim at Polyarc has been to make the most of the immersive, interactive potential of VR to build new worlds and tell new stories. It’s been a great challenge creating Moss, but working with this technology and discovering the possibilities has been a deeply rewarding experience. None of this would have been possible without the energy and effort of every person here at Polyarc. I’m so proud of what we’ve created, and proud to be a part of this team that worked so hard to bring Quill and Moss to life. And now, in just eight days, players around the world will finally be able to experience the game we’ve had the privilege to build. We created Moss for you, so please let us know what you think. We can’t wait to hear from you. Thank you. Tam Armstrong View the full article

  12. It’s time for Fe to leave the nest and spread its wings. Hello, PlayStation fans! I’m Alexandra, the Community Manager at Zoink Games, and today I’m here to talk with you about Fe. For the last couple of years, we’ve been living and breathing the forest you’ll soon get the chance to discover yourself. We’re so excited to hear your thoughts when Fe launches on PlayStation 4 tomorrow, February 16! In Fe, you take on the role of a young cub waking up in a forest glade. You are alone. You don’t know who you are, or what you’re doing here. But if you keep your eyes open, you’ll soon discover other inhabitants of the forest. Gain their trust, and they might share their secrets and lead you forward in your adventure. It seems so long ago since we first snuck a prototype of Fe into our old title Zombie Vikings as an easter egg. In the middle of playing a hack and slash brawler filled with bad puns and monsters, players were suddenly cast into a lush forest full of beauty – and danger. This was something unlike anything Zoink had ever done before, and I’m sure a lot of people were surprised by the sudden change of art style. But the Zoink core of storytelling is still there, only in a different way. In Fe, you’ll use your voice to form relationships with the inhabitants of the forest. To take on the Silent Ones, a new threat that recently arrived in the area, you need to work together with your new friends, jump, glide and fly to get through tricky areas and hostile environments. Fe is very much inspired by our own childhoods in Sweden. It’s hard to avoid the forest when most of the country is covered by it, and it served as a playground and a place for adventures. Thick pines, small trails coated in fir needles, slender birches and croaking toads all gave their own touch to a world that was both playful and a little bit scary at times. After some initial gentle pushes in the right direction, we’ll leave you to discover all the world’s nooks and crannies for yourself. You’ll soon realize some areas will be hard to reach before learning the oh-so-important skills of climbing and gliding. These are just two of the abilities you’ll be able to unlock and make use of throughout the game. Hopefully, your journey with Fe will be just as enjoyable for you as its been for us. Enjoy your time in the forest! View the full article
  13. This is Masaru Oyamada from Square Enix. I am the producer for the Secret of Mana remake. I have been working on the Mana series since 2006, when I had the opportunity to work alongside series creator, Ishii Koichi, on porting Final Fantasy Adventure (Seiken Densetsu – Final Fantasy Gaiden) to mobile phone platforms. As a fan, I first played Final Fantasy Adventure in 1991 and since then I have completed every game in this series and grew a passion for the franchise. I was one of many who felt great disappointment at there being no new Mana games after Mr. Ishii left the company. In 2014, when I was working on Rise of Mana, I had heard from many fans who wanted to play the previous titles in the series, but were unable to do so on current generation hardware. As such, I worked to remake Final Fantasy Adventure in 2016. Since then, there were many voices stating that they wanted to see a port of Secret of Mana globally, which now brings us to this remake. Having finally arrived at release day, I look back over the development and I feel that the hardest challenge we had to overcome was recreating the world map that is used when flying on Flammie. We had to alter the basic system, as well as tweak the visual design, in order to convert the way the flat terrain was depicted from the original into 3D, and making sure that everything still fit together properly. What I am most pleased with in the remake is the penultimate scene with the three heroes, just before they face the last boss. This was already a very emotional scene in the original game, but the remake enhances the drama even more with the new voices, 3D models and music, which is why I like it so much. We invite fans who played the original game to indulge in your nostalgia, as well as enjoy the new elements, such as the interlude episodes that will let you see the story in a new light. There are also some nice little Easter eggs hidden in towns across the world which we would love to see long-term Mana series veterans pick up on! This game was made with the incredible support of all the fans of the series. Everyone on the development team took care to leave in what made the original great, while also striving to make this a game that puts the Mana series on the map for many generations of gamers. As time continues to pass, we would love to see a new generation of players continue to remember Secret of Mana as one of their great gaming experiences. View the full article

  15. Right after The Evil Within 2 launched, inquisitive fans discovered something: a first-person mode that was limited to a specific part of the game’s story could be (with some finagling) extended to other areas of the game. The community began clamoring for this feature to be officially extended to the rest of the game, and the development team at Tango Gameworks has listened. The entirety of The Evil Within 2 can now be played in first-person via a free update. We spoke to Producer Shinsaku Ohara about the process and challenges of bringing a first-person mode to a third-person game. What made you decide to get this feature working for the whole game? We experimented a bit with first-person in the full game, but it was more of an afterthought and a little bit of playing around on our side, since we designed the game in third-person. Some savvy users figured out a way to activate this mode outside of its intended area, and the reaction to it was pretty positive, so we said, “What the heck. Let’s put it in as a bonus.” A lot of players like playing horror games in first-person, so for those who want to see some of the game’s situations through Sebastian’s eyes, it’s a really neat experience. What kind of development work goes into implementing an entirely new POV into a finished game? Did you run into any unique challenges? The Evil Within 2 wasn’t designed as a first-person game, so obviously it was pretty difficult. We like to think of it as a “high-level hack” so we don’t want people to compare this with Doom or anything like that. There were some scenes that just didn’t work, so it jumps back and forth a bit to third-person. But we made sure the game’s an enjoyable experience and hopefully people will enjoy playing in this mode. Do you have a favorite moment to experience in first-person? I think exploring Union in first-person makes the scale feel even bigger than it does when you’re in third-person. Also, being able to see our environments and enemies up close allows players to get an even better look at how much effort went into their designs. View the full article
  16. Romans, Vikings, Samurai, Aztecs, Spartans and more will answer the call to arms to battle it out in a series of hazard-filled arenas as World of Warriors makes its PS4 debut on March 21. Grab three friends (with active PS Plus memberships) and choose from amongst the greatest warriors in history, who have been summoned to a land beyond their own to take on challengers in a variety of multiplayer arenas.

Let’s take a look at some of the locations… and their repertoires of deadly surprises. Coliseum Hack ‘n’ slash your enemies in the Coliseum! Impress the crowd with your combat skills, but watch out for the spinning fire totem or else you’ll get burned! Heroic Hills Picturesque and perfect Heroic Hills may seem, but don’t let your guard down! This is no picnic in the park, as those spinning whirlpool tornadoes can be fierce! The Sea of Night The sea can be a cruel mistress, and so can this arena! Watch out for the titan who swings his anchor. You might be in international waters, but you’re on his turf now! Midnight Forest Deep down in the dark woods, the Midnight Forest lays keep to an ancient tree who can aid warriors in their battles… but get on his wrong side and he’ll aid the enemy!

  18. Today, Knockout League – Grab Games and Vive Studios’ arcade-style boxing game built from the ground up for virtual reality – is launching for PlayStation VR. Now PSVR owners can step into the ring and face off against a cast of fierce competitors in a game that will test their reflexes while offering a brisk workout. Knockout League is the ultimate game for virtual reality and we are thrilled to bring this title to the PlayStation VR community. The single-player boxing game pits you against nine competitors, ranging from classic boxers to fantastic creatures. While your opponents may be wacky, the physicality of the game is real. Ducking, dodging and throwing punches, you’ll soon find yourself engaged in a way that only VR can achieve (and there is even a calorie tracker in Fitness Mode to prove it!). As you go toe-to-toe in the ring, you’ll be ranked against your friends and the community in your pursuit to dominate the leaderboards. With a tutorial training mode to teach you key strategies along with mini-games such as speed bag, you’ll be warmed up and ready to take on the fight. Knockout League pits you against nine competitors, ranging from classic boxers to fantastic creatures. While each character brings their own quirky style and attitude to the fight, these are our favorites to challenge in the ring: Sir Octopunch Sir Octopunch is one of our favorite characters. He was one of the original concepts and right away personified what we were going for with this game. Besides, what’s not to love about a talking, boxing, British octopus? When Sir Octopunch tries to overwhelm you with his vertical slam attack, pay attention to which gloves are wiggling. That’ll give a tip as to where the safe area is. Sir Octopunch represents what’s great about games and VR. He lets the player be immersed with an activity that they’re familiar with while giving them an experience that they can’t get in real life. Barrage Barrage is another one of our favorites because she’s such a strong and loveable character. Her special move the barrage is a very high damage move but takes a lot of her energy. You don’t want to be in the way of that one, but make sure to take advantage with a counterattack when she’s catching her breath. The benevolent bruiser, she’ll knock you down and encourage you during the fight. She’s exudes energy and she’s a great balance between power and speed. Showtime Showtime is the guy that you hate to love and love to hate. He’s got the smirk that makes you want to hit him in the face. You can try. The Showtime fight is tricky because his speed allows him to instantly dodge attacks. Don’t fall for his feints, look out for his counter and keep firing back at him. His fighting style fits his character and that creates some cool unique moments in the fight. Knockout League launches today at PlayStation Store for $29.99. View the full article
  19. By the time you’re reading this, PlayStation Plus members in the US should have a special treat awaiting them — a new seven-minute clip from the upcoming sci-fi film Annihilation, based on the Southern Reach trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer. Head to PlayStation Store on your PS4 to watch it! In honor of this auspicious event, I reached out to director Alex Garland, who last directed 2014’s seminal A.I. tale Ex Machina, to learn more about his journey from novelist to screenwriter to gaming storyteller to film director. PlayStation.Blog: You’ve worked in novels (The Beach), writing films (Sunshine, 28 Days Later), and videogames (Enslaved, DmC). Then you shifted to directing with Ex Machina and now Annihilation. Is there a consistent thread to your career? Alex Garland // Director, Annihilation: Not in any kind of artistic or themic way. It’s really just about what I feel really interested in. I like reading, I like watching movies, I love playing games… so the opportunity to work in those areas, I just feel lucky. So when someone like Ninja Theory gets in touch with me, I’m like “absolutely, I’m there.” So it’s not artistic, really, it’s just curiosity — and good luck, I guess. PSB: Onto Annihilation, not the easiest book to translate to film. What attracted you to it? AG: It was just the originality of it. It wasn’t like anything I had read. That immediately pushed a button in me. Every now and then, people offer up source material of one sort or another. And most of it is kind of … same-y. It belongs to other projects more than it belongs to itself. Annihilation the book just felt totally fresh and totally original. And that brought me into it. The sheer freshness of it. PSB: The setup of Annihilation – a psychologist, an anthropologist, a biologist, and a surveyor walk into a mysterious quarantined zone – almost sounds like the setup for an RPG. Was that part of the appeal? AG: It would be a really cool RPG. I’d love to see that actually, I’d love to play it. I know what you mean though. I didn’t see it in those terms, in all honesty, I read the book and in the back of my mind on one level I’m thinking “how on Earth do you make this into a film?” But mainly I was just caught up in the book itself. PSB: What was the most challenging thing to adapt from the book to the film? AG: To me, the defining thing about it was how it’s all so dreamlike. It hits you on a different level. And so responding to that atmosphere was kind of complicated. If it was an A-B-C storyline, we could just cut and paste. But you can’t cut and paste atmosphere. PSB: The book often describes things in the environment with surrealist or dreamlike language. How did you approach adapting that into a visual style? AG: Well, the same way I always do — gather a group of people who I work with. I pretty much work in a collective. People come and go, things change, but some of these people I’ve worked with for 10 years. So the first thing is, I just write a script. And then we sit around and talk about how to actually bring this to life. It’s the group all pitching in their ideas, what they respond to. That group includes the director of photography, the visual effects supervisor, the production designer — all people who are incredibly visual. PSB: I sometimes hear Annihilation described as having a new-Lovecraft-type or “weird fiction” influence. Do you agree or disagree? AG: I know of the term “weird fiction.” I’ve actually never read any Lovecraft so I can’t talk with any authority about it. The thing with Lovecraft, it’s interesting… he’s like Conrad, you know? Heart of Darkness. Where, even if you don’t know the source material, you’ve probably encountered it somewhere else. I think Lovecraft is like that. He obviously casts a very long shadow. So you encounter his influence whether you read his stuff or not. PSB: Where there other influences you drew upon? AG: Sort of… actually, a weird one. Apocalypse Now, actually. Because it’s a journey through a landscape that is getting progressively strange. There’s an element of that. But to some extent, what we tried to do is push those [other influences] out of our minds so we’re not repeating things from other movies, or books, or games, or whatever. We’re trying to come up with stuff from a more personal space. PSB: You’ve done a lot of work in gaming as well with Ninja Theory, working on Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and DmC: Devil May Cry. Are you still interested in tackling gaming-related projects? AG: Oh, definitely, definitely. I’d love to. I love playing games and I enjoyed the process of working on them. Essentially, I see my job as being a writer. So I’d need to be working on a game that required a writer, which not all games do. My favorite narrative games are probably Bioshock and The Last of Us. I’d love an opportunity to work on a game like that, that was trying to push and explore narrative within the game. PSB: Two of my favorites. Have you ever met Ken Levine? AG: I have, actually. I saw he was giving a lecture in London, and I went to it just to hear him speak. And I was lucky enough to meet him briefly. Fascinating guy. And a fascinating world he created. And there’s another guy — Mark Laidlaw. I’ve had a long correspondence with him over email. He was the Half-Life writer, and I love those games. Me and Mark have been chatting over email for, well, it must be 15 years by now. PSB: Small world. What do you enjoy about working with the gaming medium? AG: It just has this absolutely massive, massive potential. And I think that sometimes that potential gets realized — probably the best example is The Last of Us. Do you remember the indie game Braid from a few years ago? PSB: Yep! Jonathan Blow. AG: Right. That game actually has a really beautiful narrative construct, and a twist that turns the whole thing on its head at the end of the game. When I encounter games like that, it just makes me so aware of the incredible potential. I’m fascinated by it, I’m incredibly drawn to it. But just because I’m drawn to it doesn’t mean I’m any good at it. Just as a medium… it’s so young, it’s in such a state of infancy, or I guess adolescence at this point. But it’s clearly got such a long journey left. So it’s really attractive to me for that reason. PSB: You mentioned Bioshock and The Last of Us… What are some other games you feel that have managed to explore the full narrative potential of the medium? AG: The first game where I remember being completely whacked from a totally narrative sense was Ico. The game just before Shadow of the Colossus. Really good storytelling in Portal and Portal 2, and Dear Esther as well. PSB: Thanks for a great interview! View the full article
  20. Discover The Creators is a PlayStation Store curation program in which we’ve asked some of the biggest names in the biz to pick their favorite PS4 games in order to help your find your next game to play. One of the most amazing things about games on the PS4 is the variety of experiences available. From intense shooters that challenge the hardcore players to deep rich storytelling titles that give a completely different feeling of immersion, these are some of my favorite titles that have been released so far. Batman: Arkham VR I don’t think there is an experience anywhere (movies, TV, comics) that immerses you deeper into the Batman universe more than Batman: Arkham VR. After playing for a while you really do forget you are in a VR simulation and find yourself living in this amazing world that Rocksteady built. I’m not exaggerating when I say you literally become Batman. What Remains of Edith Finch Amazing story telling game experience. Such a refreshing, stylized and creepy (in a good way) presentation. I loved the way the story was broken up into the different “rooms” and how the different family member’s stories linked together. This game was the winner of the “Best Narrative” award at The Game Awards for a reason. Inside This game is quite simply one of the best arguments that exist for video games being an artform. Describing this game requires so many words: Beautiful, dark, disturbing, eerie, and dreamlike only begin to scratch the surface. On top of the amazing emotional visual presentation are fantastic game mechanics and audio score making this game an absolute masterpiece. Resident Evil 7 For someone who hasn’t played as much of the previous Resident Evil games, you can only imagine the emotional reactions this game got out of me. I was not prepared for this. Add in PS VR support and you have one of the most heart-poundingly intense (perhaps too?) experiences in entertainment. Anyone doubting VR needs to play this. Overwatch Yes, I know…..this game has been on almost everyone’s favorite lists for more than a year and a half now, but that’s my point. Not only has this title taken the gaming world by storm, but it has managed to hold on and dominate. That kind of staying power deserves recognition. Anyone who hasn’t tried this game needs to see what all the hype is about. Doom Fantastic return to its classic (frenetic, fast, crazy) form. I just love the pacing of this shooter. The team who made this game are obviously fans of the original and have delivered a game that captures its intensity with amazing updated graphics showcasing the PS4. Head over to PlayStation Store to browse Ed’s list as well as picks curated by Tim Schafer, Yoko Taro, Cliff Bleszinski, and more. View the full article
  21. Ready, set, sprint with fast-paced 8-player racing across 21 colorful courses, launching worldwide for PSVR and Pro Today, Survios is proud to launch our newest game for PlayStation VR: Sprint Vector, an intense multiplayer adrenaline platformer that sends you rocketing through 21 colorful spacepunk courses in the craziest parkour racing game ever. While we’re stoked for you all to strap on your vector blades and enter the crazy world of robot media tycoon Mr. Entertainment, we wanted to take a few moments to share the story of Sprint Vector and how Survios set out to conquer one of VR’s biggest obstacles: locomotion. At Survios, our VR projects all start with a simple question: what do we want to feel? And back in 2016, Sprint Vector started as an equally straightforward answer: speed. We believe that VR needs to be active in order to be fully immersive — so we set off to devise an active mechanic that would convey the sensation of extreme motion in VR while also subverting the nausea reflex. The result was Fluid Locomotion, the smooth, natural mechanics system that comprises 99% of Sprint Vector’s gameplay. Based on the swinging movement of your arms while running, Fluid Locomotion translates the length and consistency of your swings into rapid forward momentum in-game. All the while, your arm movements are enough to trick your brain into processing it as locomotion, allowing for a completely comfortable experience. Success! Now we just had to build a game around the Fluid Locomotion mechanics. The concept of an over-the-top racing game took shape, but we wanted it to be more than just that. So we devised a whole new genre: adrenaline platforming, taking the frenetic navigation of a traditional platformer and ramping the speed up to ludicrous. And when you achieve ludicrous speed, you have to make sure your in-game universe reflects it. It’s hard not to have a blast racing across an Egyptian landscape that suddenly drops into alien ruins, or dodging corrosive sludge while hopping across tangled industrial pipes, or soaring over the frigid landscape of a Viking village turned ski resort. All the while, seven other players are vying to sabotage you with power-ups ranging from killer rockets to instant speeds boosts. Sprint Vector is also fun because you can play it your way. Speedrunners and overachievers will gravitate toward the Global Leaderboards on competitive mode, where eight-player races across 12 unique courses fuel the need for speed. There’s also private matchmaking and casual modes for a little friendly competition, and you can even fine-tune your skills and test yourself on 9 solo challenge courses, each with three different game modes. However you want to sprint, there’s a vector for that! With all this being said, we are beyond excited to welcome the PlayStation VR community to Sprint Vector! To show our appreciation, there are exclusive Sprint Vector PlayStation avatars and a theme for you to download, and an upcoming content patch will add free Championship Intergalactica Winter Games skins to your characters so you can add some international flavor to your favorite racer. We also invite all PlayStation gamers to join us in our official Discord server to interact with other players, set up matches, talk sprinting strategies, and enter to win exclusive prizes in weekly Sprint Vector challenges. The intro music is firing up and Mr. Entertainment is preparing for his grand entrance, so we advise you to wrap up that warm-up routine: the Sprint Vector spotlight awaits! We’ll see you on the starting line. View the full article
  22. As you may have seen this weekend, Kratos and Atreus made a special – and unexpected — guest appearance in Oakland, CA. The immersive illusion employed cutting-edge technology called “projection mapping” to bring Kratos, Atreus, and the Norse world of God of War to life in front of thousands of fans. You can check out a recording of the performance above. This projection-mapping magic uses ultra-bright video projectors together with powerful media server engines to paint vivid imagery complete with sense of motion and depth directly onto large surfaces. It could be a building, a wall around Asgard, a World Serpent…or in this case, the basketball court during half time. Because when you think of Norse myth, you think — basketball. Of course! Santa Monica Studio drove the creative process over several months in collaboration with a fantastic company called Platige Image to ensure it aligned with our studio’s vision for the game. After storyboarding the epic action sequence, we mo-capped the official in-game stunt performers for both Kratos and Atreus to ensure both characters moved and behaved in an authentic fashion. This action vignette shows Kratos and Atreus facing off against Draugr, Helwalkers and one particularly unhappy Ogre. While this sequence does not appear in the game, its inspiration comes directly from Kratos and Atreus’ adventure. This is just one more step closer to God of War’s April 20th release date, so stay tuned for more exciting info and content in the weeks leading up to the launch. A big thank you to everyone who collaborated to bring this vision to life. View the full article
  23. Since its first reveal at E3 2017, I’ve been completely enamored with Moss. Polyarc’s debut PS VR adventure casts you as Quill, an adorable (and exquisitely animated) miniature heroine in a lush, foreboding fantasy world. I had the chance to play through a new area of Moss recently, and I’d like to share it with you in our newest episode of PlayStation Underground. Watch the video above, then head over to PlayStation Store to preorder Polyarc’s debut title ahead of its upcoming launch. Moss is the first title Polyarc is releasing as a studio, but the team’s individual members have a wealth of industry experience — around 12 years per member, on average — across a broad variety of disciplines. Despite their diverse backgrounds, a common thread running through the Polyarc roster is their focus on characters. The studio makes it look almost effortless, but a lot of work has gone into making Quill a character players instinctively care about. Things like the sense of scale in each area, the believable way Quill reacts to situations, and how players can interact with her all play a part. At certain points in the game, Quill will communicate directly with the player using ASL! Since she can only squeak, I figured I'd play around with ways she can communicate with the player. Also a great perk for our deaf players. — Richard Lico (@Foofinu) August 3, 2017 So which came first, the gameplay concept, or its impossibly adorable protagonist Quill? “We didn’t want to make the player move around a lot, so we wanted to build a game where everything is happening in a reachable space,” said studio director Tam Armstrong. “For the concept we had, that meant that the character needed to fit within arm’s length. A small character resulted from that, then it was a question of ‘how do we theme that?’ That’s where Quill came from.” “That physical interaction created this character who also gives you a strong emotional reaction,” adds art director Chris Alderson. Moss iOS Sticker Pack Quill is on the way to add a little cheer to your chats! iOS users can head to the App Store starting right now to download a new iMessage sticker pack. The positive public reception to Quill herself after her E3 debut has made Polyarc take a second look at where they’ve been focusing their development efforts: “We had theories about VR game design from a mechanical perspective,” Tam explains, “but once we started making the game and this small character we surprised ourselves with how strongly we felt about her. “Having that reinforced by the response from our audience just affirmed it, and development shifted to focus on her and the things she does. We have things in the game now that we weren’t planning to do, but that we felt needed to happen after watching people interact with her at E3.” One example of this is being able to wave at Quill (by physically waving your controller in the air) and having her wave back. A tiny touch that some might not even think to try, but one that adds a real sense of believability — that feeling of immersion creators have been trying to perfect since VR first hit the scene. Moss Mobile & Desktop Wallpapers Head to Polyarc’s online store to download a set of beautiful new wallpapers for your desktop or mobile device. One of the first things players tend to point out after playing Moss is how excellently animated Quill is. Watching her struggle to clamber over obstacles, or timidly unsheathe her sword in the face of looming danger, or even just look toward you with a confident nod is enough to make me want to protect this adorable little hero with every resource available to me. The work of Polyarc’s lead animator, Rich Lico, has a lot to do with the bond players feel with Moss’s petite protagonist: “I wanted to have her communicate with the player in more authentic ways, like how your friend might communicate with you,” Lico explains. “That led to things like using sign language, and having her represent how the player might be feeling — if the player is upset at something, she might kick that thing the player is upset about. You project who you are onto the character, but she also defines herself separately, and it helps build that realism.” The response to Polyarc’s work so far, and in some cases Lico’s work specifically, has been overwhelmingly positive. The team wisely strives to channel that energy back into the game. “When I come into work I’m not thinking about what people’s reactions are going to be, so when I see them I’m just blown away,” Lico says. “Especially with the sign language community, when we put out that tweet and it got such an emotional reaction, it really touched me and motivated me to want to come in and do better. “I’m just super thankful that I’m able to do this for a living,” he adds, “and that people appreciate what we do.” It’s clear from playing Moss and speaking with its creators that this is going to be a special kind of adventure, and the team at Polyarc is equal parts anxious and excited to finally send Quill out into the world. But Stephen Hodde, audio lead on Moss, feels that the project is already a success. “I never felt like I was taking a big risk, honestly,” Hodde admits, to the surprise of everyone else in the room. “The risk is going to a place that doesn’t have heart. We’ve already succeeded, in a way, because we’re making something that is heartfelt.” View the full article
  24. Can you juggle? I can’t. Tried multiple times, but it never took. Something about introducing that third ball into the equation just made my brain lock. And I’m convinced that inability is cause for the bead of sweat breaking out across my brow so early into my Moss hands-on session. Let me explain. With L2 I’m holding a triggered Ticker under my sway. This mechanical insectoid is a denizen of the mine I find myself in, just one of an endless spawning, skittering army that explode upon sensing an intruder. That intruder isn’t me, but my mouse companion Quill. She’s wandered into this puzzle room, full of fatal drops, hidden levers and multiple pathways, at my behest. It’s just one of many in this underground labyrinth that we’re exploring. Her would-be attacker is grossly swollen, ready to pop. But won’t, unless I release my grip. It’s one of my powers as a Reader: a towering, benevolent in-world spirit awoken by Quill at the adventure’s start. I’m watching over her travels from on high, but can at any point lean in close to get a closer look at her surroundings… or just go nose to nose with my mousey friend. Anyway, that brain teaser. Reach out and hold Quill for a few seconds to heal her. Cool detail? The rapid thrum of her heartbeats that’ll radiate out through your Dualshock 4. By angling the Dualshock 4 I can direct the Ticker towards ones of the room’s switches that, once activated – by loosening my grip and letting the Ticker’s nature take its course – will operate pulleys and ultimately a certain moving platform. (I’ve utilised the same trick to first expose the lever by blowing up a stone wall that hid it.) Simultaneously with the left stick, I guide Quill the other way, towards that platform. I help her slash through some Tickers, dodge others then climb up and over ledges. At the same time I’m double-checking via my peripheral vision if triggering this lever, standing on that platform will get Quill across the abyss. I’ll admit: I’m struggling. Yet a few minutes later as a surviving Quill reaches the room exit, I feel a small glow of satisfaction, a heightened anticipation for what puzzle comes next. I also feel surprise. Surprise that this slick-looking PS VR puzzle platformer has such a strong undercurrent of complexity. You’ll have a birds-eye view of each area, but you can lean in to get a closer look, and a glowing outline of Quill will appear if she disappears behind walls. It’s not the only surprise; the play session opens on a beach, takes Quill and I through those mines and spills us outside a distant fort. Throughout the colors are muted, and oppressive stillness permeates every location. There’s a disquieting darkness to this adventure to rescue Quill’s loved one; less fairytale Disney, more dark fantasy Jim Henson. And Moss is better for it. You can see it wherever you look. As human-sized god bonded to this mouse you’re continually viewing this world from two perspectives. Quill’s own reshapes the usually insignificant; tree tops become looming dark clouds, a ditch becomes a hill to transverse. Ours sees the stories of the ruins around her. The game’s name is a nod to the world rather than the individual journey. Quill’s just one story on a planet filled with them. Early on Quill takes refuge under an oddly angled overhang. She can’t see the bigger picture: we can. The overhang is the wing of a gigantic, armoured figure half-buried in sand; a relic of a civilisation broken by the world an age ago.The game’s camera angle gives such visual hints a fresh perspective. And that’s true of Moss as a whole thanks to its use of PS VR and its gameplay duality: a fresh perspective on the genre. I’m looking forward to see what’s next for our journey together, and to juggling multiple puzzles at once. Continue the journey with our interview with the game’s creator Polyarc right here, get some cool wallpapers for the game here, and finally check out PlayStation Access’ own impressions of the game here.

  27. Your top downloads for January are here! Surprising nobody, Monster Hunter: World was the most-downloaded PS4 game of January. The first PS4 entry in Capcom’s long-running series launched to critical acclaim, and players worldwide (myself included) are hooked on its expertly tuned gameplay loop. We’re adding a new chart to the post starting this month: Top Free-to-Play Games. Including these titles in the overall charts would skew things a bit since, ya know… they’re free, but with fan favorites like Fortnite and Warframe regularly pulling in big numbers it feels wrong not to have them represented here. As always, the rankings here are determined based on number of downloads, not by revenue generated, and if you’re curious to try and of them out you can nab ’em over at PlayStation Store. Until next time!
