  1. Yesterday
  2. Back in March, we announced Marvel’s Iron Man VR exclusively for PlayStation VR. It was fun (and cathartic!) to finally talk about the game as we know how special and important of a game this is for PlayStation, VR enthusiasts, and, of course, fans of Marvel. In celebration of San Diego Con Comic, we joined the Marvel Games panel to talk more about the game, the Impulse Armor designed by legendary Marvel artist Adi Granov, and how Camouflaj tackled one of the greatest development challenges it’s ever faced: nailing flying in VR. During the initial ideation process, the team at Camouflaj knew we had to execute on a number of essential components to bring the Iron Man fantasy to life in VR. Feeling like you’re wearing the suit, blasting your Repulsors, viewing the world through a full three-dimensional HUD, and being the complex (and inventive) Tony Stark character were all key, but none more important than nailing the sensation that you’re flying around as Iron Man in VR. In order to convince the team at Marvel Games that Camouflaj was the ideal developer to bring Iron Man to VR, we knew we had to demonstrate that flying as Iron Man in virtual reality is not only comfortable, but wildly fun and liberating. To compound the challenge, we had only a few precious weeks to sign our next project, so, like Tony Stark in the cave with his back against the wall, we brushed aside all mortal concerns and faced the challenge head-on. During those first few days of preparation, I hosted meetings with our team to determine what should be included in the ultimate Marvel’s Iron Man VR pitch. One day later, Troy Johnsen, an engineer on the team, came back with what felt like the perfect prototype. As many of you probably know, so much of game development — as with Iron Man himself — is about experimenting and not giving up, even in the face of seemingly impossible challenges. With 48 hours left until the pitch, we packed our gear into a rental car and drove from Seattle to Los Angeles. Our lead writer Brendan Murphy drove most of the way while Troy, Brendan’s dog Remy, and I continued to noodle on the pitch on my laptop. During the long road trip, whenever we expressed concerns about Marvel signing the game, we reminded each other of what was in the trunk of the car: a magic prototype that convinces almost anyone who plays it that, not only is Iron Man perfect for VR, but that Camouflaj was the team to realize the dream. Needless to say, the team at Marvel Games loved the pitch — especially the prototype — and we began the long drive back home to Seattle beaming with energy. What then transpired was years of hard work building the story, features, and technology while Troy continued to experiment, tweak, and polish in service of delivering true Super Hero aerial freedom. Without getting too much into the weeds, here are some ingredients in the secret sauce: Physics-based Flight The key reason it feels so good and natural to fly as Iron Man in our game is because we obey Newton’s laws of motion. We doubled down on how it would work in real life, which, it turns out, your brain really appreciates. Every frame we process includes calculations of up to a dozen forces, such as thrust, drag, and gravity — as well as our assistance systems — that output Iron Man’s accurate and believable trajectory through the sky. Momentum Conservation Whenever possible, we preserve the player’s forward momentum. These systems allow the player to carve turns at high speed and enable our dogfight mechanics. Bumpers Inspired by those balloon-like “bumpers” at bowling alleys, we built an invisible system that cushions and guides the player around hard edges of buildings and other geometry. The bumpers also soften the blow when the player rams into something at high speeds. Under the hood, we account for potential upcoming collisions and gently apply collision-avoidance forces. Contextual Suit Settings It turns out, the player doesn’t want to accelerate from zero to 300 kilometers per hour when they are trying to delicately fly around more confined spaces. Wherever more precise flight speed is needed, we apply different suit settings based on context. This allows the player to utilize their thrusters for both small-scale maneuvers as well as unlocking full-blown, face-melting thrust when they need it. Developing Marvel’s Iron Man VR is as incredibly challenging as it is fun. The world of Iron Man and Tony Stark is such a fertile world to be creative in, but it demands that we execute on a number of key features, none more important than free-roaming flight as Iron Man. Over the coming months we’ll be able to share a lot more about Marvel’s Iron Man VR — and trust me — there’s still much more to share. As fans of Iron Man and PlayStation VR, we believe we have a clear idea of what you all want out of Marvel’s Iron Man VR, and we’re working hard every day to deliver on that. Back to the Garage!

  5. Hello, my name is Carles, and I am the Lead Programmer at Altered Matter — the studio behind the game Etherborn. Today is a big moment for us, as we are finally releasing Etherborn to the world. Nearly four years of work has boiled down to this very moment. It’s exciting and nerve-wracking all at the same time. In this post, I want to give you a bit of advice and some tips for our game. I hope that they will come in handy. But first, watch our launch trailer, which should give you some context about what Etherborn is about. Etherborn is an exploration puzzle platformer set in a world where gravity behaves in a different way than ours. So my first bit of advice for you is to relax, unwind, and let yourself loose in this world. There is no timer chasing you to finish the level before it runs out, or enemies making your life difficult and trying to kill you. It’s only you and the level that’s in front of you. As you will notice, any area with a curve changes the direction of gravity’s pull. Explore those surfaces, as a simple gravity shift can make places that were once inaccessible become wide open. The world is a Rubik’s cube — play around with it and see where it will take you. The next tip I have for you is so simple that it hurts. To access some parts of the levels, you will need to find orbs scattered around the environment and place them on specific switches. Once you do that, bridges, paths, and new structures will emerge, letting you move forward and discover what’s ahead. There might be times when you could feel a bit stuck trying to find that “one more orb” to progress. But remember — you can pick up orbs from switches you’ve already used and don’t need access to anymore. Sometimes, it’s the obvious things that we miss out on the most. My last piece of advice is to not worry about being wrong and enjoy experimentation. What we wanted people to experience are those beautiful “Eureka!” moments when they play — that “OMG, I can’t believe it was this simple/now I got it!” feeling. If you are feeling stuck, don’t be afraid to veer off the path you already took, and try to bite the problem from a different angle so to speak. Etherborn is all about exploring the environments to understand how gravity will affect you and the path that you need to take. That eureka moment that you are looking for could be just a step, jump, or gravity change away! I hope that you enjoyed this little write-up and that Etherborn has piqued your interest. Etherborn is now available at PlayStation Store, and we are absolutely over the moon just thinking about it. We hope that you might feel a little bit of that too. And if you want to ask me any questions about our game, don’t hesitate to do so in the comments below! View the full article
  6. It’s time to sharpen those spears and jump into the nearest wagon, Wargroove is heading to PlayStation 4 next week on Tuesday, July 23! If you haven’t heard about Wargroove before, here’s a quick summary. It’s a strategy game for up to four players with both local and online multiplayer. You can select one of 12+ Commanders, recruit units, storm enemy barracks and wage turn-based war on your faction foes. It’s even playable in ten languages – English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Simplified and Traditional Chinese. Choose your Commander and get into the Groove Commanders are at the heart of the game, each with their own special ultimate move called a ‘Groove’, which only activates once it has charged to 100%. Grooves can completely shake up the battlefield in an entirely different way once used, take Felheim’s High Vampire Sigrid for example, whose ‘Vampiric Touch’ Groove drains all health from an enemy unit and heals her — very handy when you’re in a pinch! Each Commander has their own distinct personality and motivations, which you’ll learn more about in the game’s single player story campaign, which follows the Cherrystone Kingdom’s fresh-faced and inexperienced Queen Mercia on her quest against unworldly forces. Create your own adventure For the creative types amongst you, in Wargroove you can even design and share online your very own maps, cut-scenes and campaigns. We’ve actually given players the same editor tools we used to create the maps and cut-scenes in the game itself, with advanced customisation tools at your fingertips. The possibilities really are endless, you could create your own story-driven missions each with sub-quests, plot twists and ambushes, or change the rules of the game and design your own Wargroove game of chess without any external mods or tools. If you’re looking for inspiration head to the ‘Share’ tab in the game menu and browse and download custom maps and campaigns crafted by fellow community-members. Twice a month we also update the featured maps section, highlighting our favourite player designed maps, so you’ll always have new content to explore! Ready for a challenge? If you’re looking for a challenge outside of completing every campaign mission with S-Rank, you can also try out Wargroove’s Arcade & Puzzle modes. Arcade is a series of battles where you’ll take on 5 different opponents in quick succession, whereas Puzzles challenge you to use all your strategic knowledge to outwit and complete a challenge in just one turn! Wargroove also has plenty of secrets and unlockables, including some hidden game features… It’s safe to say that Wargroove has grown quite a bit since it was first announced in 2017, now becoming a rather massive fully-featured package that we hope you’ll love discovering for yourself on PS4. The whole team here at Chucklefish truly appreciates all the support you’ve given throughout the game’s development, and patience you’ve had while Wargroove made its way to PS4. When July 23 rolls around, we hope you’ll love playing it as much as we enjoyed making it! P.S. Did we mention you can play as a dog? Because yes, yes you can. View the full article

  10. Been waiting many moons for a new Paladins Champion? Your wait is over. The newest Support Champion, the moon goddess Io, launches today with the Sun & Moon Update, and I’m thrilled to tell you more about her: For eons, Io watched over the Realm. But then disaster struck: The Darkness smothered the goddess’s light, and shattered the moon that hangs above our battlefields. Pieces of the moon fell to the Shattered Desert, where Io’s faithful watched over them. They kept vigil for the shattered goddess, praying that one day she would return. That day finally came as the Magistrate marched on the moon shards, determined to harness their power in the ongoing war against the Paladins. At the urging of her celestial friend Jenos, Io revealed her true form to fight for her people and stand against the Magistrate. If you’re an active player, you’ve seen glimpses of Io and her fox, Luna, before. We’ve been teasing Io since the release of the Shattered Desert map, which featured spirit wolves running around the environment. More recently, sharp-eyed players may have noticed a statue of Io in the middle of our new Siege map, Bazaar. Io is a graceful Champion who wields a magical bow and the power of the moon itself. Her mystical Light Bow fires crescent arrows, summoned to our Realm seconds before firing. She heals her allies with the power of Moonlight, channeling a limited resource of lunar energy into the injured. And beware when Io calls upon the power of the moon itself, altering the force of gravity and carrying enemies to their doom. But the focus of Io’s gameplay is her pet spirit fox, Luna. As you play Io, you’ll summon Luna, tell her where to move, and command her to attack. Luna will fight alongside you, rushing towards the foes you target and stunning them. Depending on how you play with Paladins’ Talent system, Luna can also heal your allies or provide Io a second life. Io’s not the only new content in our new update — there’s a sun to balance out the moon! Make a splash and earn over 100 great rewards with the Shore Patrol Battle Pass. You’ll earn Battle Pass experience with every game you play, leveling up this fun-in-the-sun Battle Pass and unlocking rewards. Dive in with the Shore Patrol Kinessa Skin — instantly unlocked with purchase of the Battle Pass — and keep playing to get skins for Kinessa, Koga, and Fernando. We hope that you all love the new content in the Sun & Moon update. We’ll see you in the Realm, Champions! View the full article

  13. Today marks the incredible milestone of fifty years since three brave astronauts dared to leap, boarding Apollo 11 and leaving our atmosphere with the incredible ambition of being the first to walk on the Moon. Words cannot describe the courage that it must have taken and their mission took us all on an incredible journey, one which has shaped the world’s imagination, perhaps especially the games industry — to take players on breathtaking adventures. Growing up with a grandfather who inspired us to look up to the stars, we were always spacemen. He designed incredible telescopes and would wake us up in the middle of the night to go stargazing. We had the bug from an early age… but video games have taken that imagination to a new level. The sci-fi genre within games goes back almost as far as videogames themselves. Star Wars: Dark Forces on the original PlayStation was an early favorite of ours but our more direct inspiration for Deliver Us The Moon have to be the games that truly allow you to be an astronaut — to explore new worlds and set foot on moons, planets and space stations. The Mass Effect series really set the bar in terms of sci-fi narrative, driving the player excitedly towards their epic conclusion. Dead Space was a big influence, too — the space suits themselves and the use of HUD within the game, along with what can only be described as a masterclass in the loneliness of space. There have been many sci-fi games that have pushed not only the hardware they were built for, but our minds to the limit in an incredible way, exploring the supernatural and forces unknown. For Deliver Us The Moon, we wanted to make a game that let you fly, but also kept your feet on the ground. Mankind’s brave ventures into Space and reach for other worlds have given us a much greater understanding of our own. The Earth is changing, and in Deliver Us The Moon we tried to imagine what our planet might look like in another half-century – how mankind might come to depend on the stars, and on you. So, what can you expect in terms of gameplay? Will I get to launch a rocket? … Check. Will I get to moon walk? … Check Ooooh… How about a lunar rover? … CHECK. You get to be an astronaut. We wanted to pack the game full of experiences. From anti-gravity puzzles to an open lunar landscape to explore (complete with lunar monorail), there’s plenty to keep you feeling light while you take on your mission. Deliver Us The Moon will launch on PS4 in the near future but while you wait, we would like to encourage everyone to enjoy the commemorations over the next few days; from the anniversary of the launch today, through to the moon landing on Saturday, July 20, and their landing back on Earth on July 24. We would like to thank Michael, Neil, and Buzz for daring to leap and taking our imaginations on an incredible journey. View the full article
  14. Greetings, PlayStation! It’s been a while since we updated you all on the wonderful things happening with Boundless. A lot has happened in the game’s universe since we launched, and there’s a whole lot more to come. As we line up the biggest update to our sandbox MMO since launch, I thought I’d let you all know what we’ve been working on, and what you can expect to see arrive in game with this latest release. Today, we’ve released the Harvest Era update for Boundless. This brings a wealth of systems which provide several new ways to play. First up, we have a brand new Farming system, whereby players can cultivate crops to provide a steady food supply to their settlements. Farming isn’t restricted to food either — inorganic materials such as Fuel can be created with their own system, allowing players to support their Guild with a plentiful supply of vital goods. Players can use Goo Farming techniques to produce Goo Pigment, used in Color Sprays to embellish your Builds. In the near future, players will also be able to turn their Skills to botany, producing beautiful decorative flora to decorate their World. Of course, Farming isn’t as simple as placing a seed in the ground and waiting. There are many variables to take into account when it comes to increasing the quality and yield of any material. The most skillful farmers will need to consider placement, local vegetation, and irrigation before sowing the seeds for success. Ah yes, irrigation. This has led us to introduce yet another cool feature — placeable liquids. Water will be needed to make sure crops or flowers thrive, whereas some of the more unorthodox goods will need lava to grow. These are both now placeable in the World as any other block — though they will behave differently. Nobody gets to opt out of Fluid Dynamics here. The only exception to this will be player’s Beaconed bases. Players won’t be able to flood anyone else with water, lava or other liquids. We’re serious about keeping Boundless a friendly place. Of course, there’s more. We’re releasing a whole set of Color Sprays into the game, allowing players to decorate certain blocks within their Beacon in weird and wonderful ways. Colors are produced via the intricate, skillful Goo Farming system, and we can’t wait to see what the budding artists in Boundless can come up with. We’ve also undertaken a significant overhaul of the universe’s lighting system. While this won’t make a huge difference to the moment-to-moment gameplay, it gives the entire game a more atmospheric feel, particularly on certain Worlds and at certain times. Those little emergent moments when exploring a new World will now have even more impact. All this is just what’s coming with this specific release. In the months since we’ve launched, we’ve been bringing out a release roughly every couple of weeks — we’ve dropped programmable LED blocks, a full Guild system, new Messaging, dangerous temporary ExoWorlds, and so much more. Players are now able to join the Boundless Universe, join a Guild, head out on huge, organised group hunts, then head off to new frontiers to find out what’s waiting to be claimed. It’s so satisfying to see how far Boundless has come since launch, and we can’t wait to see you all join us for the Harvest Era. If you have any questions at all, or would like to know more about Boundless, then please don’t be shy! We love talking with players old and new, and are happy to answer any queries you have. A Sandbox MMO is nothing without its community, and we’re proud to say we have one of the very best in the World. We’re still working on what’s coming next — we have a particularly dangerous new critter lying in wait, and are working on all sorts of exciting features to expand on all areas of the game. See you in the game folks! View the full article

  16. Supermassive Games just gets horror. When Until Dawn screamed onto PS4 back in 2015, it brought with it a savvy understanding of horror tropes matched with hyper-realistic graphics and real consequences that made the fear come alive. The threat of death looming over each character and the drive to solve its lingering mysteries kept me coming back to the game, often alongside friends who would watch and help me find new paths (and untimely ends) for the cast through multiple playthroughs. When I played a short demo for Man of Medan back at E3, I could tell that the first game in Supermassive’s Dark Pictures horror anthology was off to a solid start. The characters felt human, and the consequences of my interactions felt meaningful. Stepping onto the historic U.S.S. Hornet in Alameda earlier this week for a longer preview of the game, Supermassive gave a broader peek at its narrative structure…and a first look at its game-changing multiplayer modes. Shared Story mode is a two-player online mode that puts each player in control of different characters, at times presenting them with totally separate sequences. Man of Medan follows a group of 20-somethings who embark on a wreck-diving adventure hoping to discover some treasure, but instead stumbling upon something much darker. The game indicates when control is shifting to a new character, and it similarly relays who your partner is controlling in the upper right hand corner. “Your friend is deciding” flashes ominously during time-critical moments left in their hands. Characters can appear in scenes together, physically exploring a shared environment or even having a conversation, or they can be split up. In one sequence I played as the reckless Julia, diving below our ship to explore an undiscovered WWII plane wreck. While I grappled with choices underwater (do I take my scuba gear off to possibly reach a clue? Do I pull a bullet out of the hull as a souvenir or respectfully leave things untouched?), my partner controlled the reluctant captain of the ship Fliss, engaging in a totally unrelated interaction. Each of us had conversations and made choices that would affect the relationships for all the characters in the story, and we did this without being able to consult one another. This is the collaborative crux of Shared Story mode. While my partner and I both had an idea of who each of these characters are, and what choices we’d like them to make, the mode creates scenarios where our individual choices created unexpected waves for one another. Sometimes it ended well; our separate conversation choices led to one character getting seasick, which in turn led to him being hidden when the boat was eventually overtaken by intruders. Other times, our best intentions served only to get in each other’s way. While exploring the ship, I rummaged through someone’s luggage, leaving out a bottle of cologne. When the intruders boarded later in the demo, I thought I had made a savvy choice — having the bottle exposed made it easier to grab and smash against one of the bad guys’ heads. But when I consulted my partner after the dust had settled, she told me since her character was above deck during that scene, smashing the bottle actually interrupted her character’s attempt at escaping, leaving us wondering what could have been. An earlier moment, which served as a tutorial, featured WWII soldiers aboard a battleship. In its final moments, my partner and I believed our characters were separated and succumbing to differing grisly fates. When we met up after the playthrough, the questions flowed quickly — where did you go? What did you see? How did you die? It turned out our characters were actually in the same room, but experiencing different supernatural visions that resulted in us killing each other. This excitable exchanging of notes made a playthrough of Movie Night mode even more dramatic. The couch co-op mode lets five people each choose a character, then pass the controller when each corresponding character is in control. Having all just come out of a first runthrough, everyone in my party had opinions about which choices we should make, all willing to miss a quick time event or make a more aggressive remark just to see how the narrative would shift. And shift it did — seedier details were revealed, different clues were unlocked, and we even got a character’s ear cut off (sorry Conrad!). While Until Dawn organically worked as a more communal experience, Supermassive has woven that idea more elegantly into Man of Medan. Its naturally collaborative modes serve to heighten the game’s suspense and add interesting new layers to an already delightful horror romp. My choices felt impactful, and it was fascinating to see how offhand comments could make ripples…or treacherous waves. I’ll be grabbing a friend to see where the story goes next when Man of Medan launches August 30 on PS4. View the full article

  22. Hello! Today, we’re publishing two cool new episodes of PlayStation Underground, shining a spotlight on Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. The massive new expansion launches later this year, but I jumped at an opportunity to play it earlier and capture footage of two hunts… of varying levels of success. First, we set off to take down the majestic Banbaro: a moose-like creature whose horns plow through snow like butter and turn trees into surprisingly effective tools of hunter-wreckin’ destruction. I equipped my trusty hammer and set forth in our first episode: For our second hunt, I took on the fearsome Tigrex, a returning MonHun fan-favorite. This beast’s quick, unpredictable nature made for a more challenging target, especially when paired with my less refined Switch Axe skills. I may be a hammer main, but I just had to (attempt to) show off that sick new Switch Axe combo! Thanks for watching! Monster Hunter World: Iceborne launches September 6 on PS4. Feel free to pass the time by telling me all the ways I screwed up during that Tigrex hunt in the comments. View the full article

  26. Hi there, I’m Pete Samuels, Series Director and Executive Producer of The Dark Pictures Anthology. We’re thrilled to announce multiplayer for Man of Medan and the entire Dark Pictures Anthology, and I’m hugely excited to talk to you about it today. As we’ve announced last year, The Dark Pictures Anthology is a series of standalone cinematic horror games, each featuring a brand-new story, setting and characters. Man of Medan is the first in the series, releasing on August 30. We hope you’re as excited as us that you’ll be able to play every game in the series in multiplayer. First up, some details. We’ve announced two multiplayer modes for The Dark Pictures Anthology — Shared Story mode and Movie Night mode. In Shared Story you’ll play online with a friend, making choices that affect both of you. We really hope you enjoy the intensity of experiencing the story with a friend… and that you are still friends after! In Movie night mode, five people (you and up to four of your friends) can play couch co-op. Each player can enter their name and choose which character (or characters) to play, then simply pass the pad whenever that character is the focus of the game. You can explore, react, and make decisions to keep your character alive and stay in the game. When prompted, simply pass the controller onto the next player so that they can continue with their character. Periodically, the game will present a summary of how each player has played. We were so impressed by the innovative and collaborative ways people played Until Dawn together that we created this feature to help facilitate that way of playing. Creating a narrative game with multiplayer has thrown up some interesting design challenges — the most significant of which was in the two-player Shared Story, and how to have both players enjoy a great story when they each see different things and neither sees everything. It also created some great new design and narrative opportunities which we hope will surprise you. When you and your friend ‘split up,’ you can’t be sure that you’ll ever see their character again! It is horror, after all. We think that it really brings something fresh to the genre to play with a friend online, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Each mode is different but both have been influenced by our experience with Until Dawn. When Until Dawn released we were surprised and delighted by how many people were streaming the game. We’ve had around 1 billion views on YouTube alone. We’d also get plenty of people telling us how much they enjoyed playing the game together with friends on the couch. These both fed into the initial design of The Dark Pictures Anthology and we decided that along with story, characters, and cinematic production values, multiplayer should be core to the series. In short, we have built The Dark Pictures Anthology from the ground up with multiplayer in mind. Your first chance to try this out will be in Man of Medan, the first in the series. This game sees four American tourists and their inexperienced captain going on the diving holiday of a lifetime in the South pacific. All sounds idyllic right? Wrong, things soon take a turn for the worse and it will be up to you what happens next. With Man of Medan having more branching than any of our previous games, you’ll need to replay the game many times to find out every possible scenario. Whether you play Solo, online Shared Story, or couch-based Movie Night, we hope you’ll have a great horror experience. We can’t wait to see and hear how you get on. My advice? Don’t. Play. Alone!
