  5. For the first time since The Elder Scrolls Online’s launch, Tamriel’s adventurers will be able explore the snow-covered lands of Skyrim once again with the announcement of an all-new Chapter, The Elder Scrolls Online: Greymoor. This new Chapter, coming to PlayStation 4 on June 2, is a major part of the brand-new Dark Heart of Skyrim year-long story that begins with the Harrowstorm dungeon DLC in March and continues throughout the entire year. Greymoor takes you to the region of Western Skyrim. Not only will this new zone allow you to explore the cold wilderness that surrounds the city of Solitude, but it also provides an opportunity to explore the massive underground region of Blackreach. Whatever your experience was with this part of Tamriel during your adventures in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you’ll find the Western Skyrim of ESO, some 1000 years before the events of TESV, a familiar but different land from the one you’ve explored previously, filled with new quests, delves, world bosses, and more. In this new Chapter, you will take part in a massive year-long story and help the besieged Nords investigate the emergence of horrific supernatural events called harrowstorms. Monstrous vampires and other dark beasts have emerged from the depths below Solitude, and it is up to you to put a stop to these dark events and discover the ancient evil at their heart. This new Chapter also introduces a new system, Antiquities, that allows you to scry and uncover ancient relics from all over the continent. As a would-be archeologist, you shall unearth fantastic new items and collectibles in your quest to discover Tamriel’s hidden history. As part of the Dark Heart of Skyrim year-long adventure, the story you experience in the Greymoor Chapter (and the Harrowstorm DLC before it) will be a part of a major storyline that continues throughout the entirety of 2020. Of course, Greymoor’s storyline is a complete adventure in its own right, and how you choose to play each new release in 2020 is entirely up to you! An ancient evil has awoken beneath the frozen lands of Western Skyrim, and an epic new year-long adventure beckons to Tamriel’s champions. It’s time to face the darkness that now marches forth from Blackreach — Skyrim needs heroes! View the full article
  6. Every Dragon Ball fan has a favorite moment, one that made them cheer at the screen or sit up in anticipation. For some, this moment could be a dizzying combat scene, while for others it may be a dramatic line of dialog. I can certainly recall some exchanges in the Cell saga that gave me goosebumps the first time I heard ’em. We’ve watched — or read! — these moments for many years, and with Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, you’ll be able to play through the Z Warriors’ saga, from the Raditz attack all the way through Majin Buu. We were curious how the game’s development team crammed so many famous sagas into one game (let alone add even more lore, characters and moments), so we reached out to community specialist Sam Wilkinson and lead producer Ryosuke Hara for more info. PlayStation.Blog: Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot encompasses the entire DBZ saga, from the days of Raditz and Vegeta to the ultimate showdown with Majin Buu. That’s a lot of ground to cover! Was there ever a time when the team felt the early sagas would be enough to fill an entire game, or was the goal always to tell the full story? Sam Wilkinson/Ryosuke Hara: That’s a good question, this definitely crossed our minds at one point. However, the initial goal of this project was not only to tell the story of Dragon Ball Z, but to allow the players to experience the journey that Goku and the Z-Warriors shared, becoming stronger and building up their bonds. We felt that this had to be delivered in one package. PSB: We assume Kakarot doesn’t contain literally every moment and line from each saga, so how did the team determine where to trim and where to let moments breathe? SW/RH: Dragon Ball Z is loved all over the world, so of course everyone has their personal favorite scene. This made it difficult to set a specific guideline when deciding which moments to include. However, everyone working on Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot are lifelong fans of Dragon Ball, so we knew the only thing we could do was continue discussing the best way to please as many Dragon Ball fans as possible. PSB: What was the overall process of converting a “saga” into individual RPG-like segments? SW/RH: Aside from the main story, we also focused on how to make the gameplay between the main scenarios interesting. As I mentioned, we are all fans of Dragon Ball, so we asked Akira Toriyama questions that we have been dying to know. We adapted those answers into the game mechanics, such as Sub Stories and conversations with NPCs. PSB: Were there any particular moments from the show that were perhaps not considered “crucial” to the game experience but were too memorable to leave out? SW/RH: There were tons! For example, we tried to shed light on the funny moments that Akira Toriyama is well known for, such as Gohan’s school life during the Buu Arc. There are definitely moments that you wouldn’t see in other Dragon Ball games. PSB: Once you had the moments locked in, were any lines used from the show or was all-new VO recorded? SW/RH: All of the lines were newly recorded by the voice actors for this game. Recently, there haven’t been Dragon Ball games which focused on retelling the anime sagas. So we could tell that the voice actors were feeling a lot of nostalgia, and enjoyed returning to these iconic scenes. PSB: When you’re not screaming into battle against notable villains, Kakarot offers lore-building side-quests with all kinds of NPCs. What kinds of stories did you want to tell with these side missions, and how do they help further flesh out the DBZ world? SW/RH: The Dragon Ball world is full of appealing characters. And although most of those characters have some sort of relationship with Goku, there are many characters that you don’t see interact in the manga or anime. For example, Piccolo and the Ox-King. Sub quests in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will also feature the relationships and talks between these types of characters, as well as introduce new locations in the Dragon Ball world provided by the author himself. PSB: A brand-new character, Bonyu, is introduced via these side-quests. How was this addition to the DBZ roster proposed and then integrated into the game? SW/RH: To be honest, adding this new character in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, was completely unexpected. At an early stage of development, we put together a list of questions we wanted to ask Akira Toriyama. When he answered one of our questions regarding the Ginyu Force, he revealed that this new character, Bonyu, used to be a member of the Ginyu Force. And not only did he provide us with this new lore, he also drew her character design. We then created a sub-quest which revolves around her setting, and her 3D Character Model, based on the illustration provided by the author. PSB: Was there any hesitation regarding adding a new character to these past events? How does Bonyu add to the world of Dragon Ball Z? SW/RH: We had absolutely no hesitation, and that’s simply thanks to the fact that it was the author himself who introduced this new character to us. PSB: Finally, how did Cyberconnect2 like working with the DBZ franchise? They’ve created notable anime fighting games as well as beloved RPGs, and this seems like a great mix of their strengths. SW/RH: Most definitely. We believe that CyberConnect2 has been able to fully utilize their strengths in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. They’ve really succeeded in fusing this game’s presentation style with the Dragon Ball Z art style. I hope everyone pays very close attention to the various facial expressions from the characters in the game during epic battles. Ryosuke Hara and the team at CyberConnect2 were honored to bring the story of Dragon Ball Z to PS4. They have been working passionately to ensure that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot honors and expands on the worldwide-beloved work of Akira Toriyama. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot releases this Friday, January 17.

  7. Originally released in 1999, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis expanded the doomed Raccoon City introduced in RE2. The chaotic city captured fans’ imagination, letting them fulfill thrilling zombie outbreak survival fantasies. New storefronts, colorful survivors, and explosive hazards brought the streets to life (despite all the death). The titular Nemesis stalked Jill throughout the city as well, keeping tourists on their toes with every step. The upcoming RE3 remake capitalizes on the exciting expansion of Raccoon City delivered in the 1999 original, boosted by Capcom’s modern enhancements. A new trailer and batch of screens sheds further light on the iconic Nemesis’s reimagined look and the chaotic Raccoon City. The fresh look also offers a few tantalizing tastes of where the remake detours from the original release, with new faces, shops, and more. Nemesis is the star of the new trailer, showcasing his trademark determination and arsenal. His classic rocket launcher returns, but he also boasts a flamethrower this time. Jill should keep her distance from Nemesis at all costs. If his 1999 iteration is any indication – he’s faster than he looks. In the 1999 original, Nemesis could prematurely end Jill’s escape by grabbing her head, lifting her aloft, and unleashing one of his infectious tentacles through his palm. Does that lethal technique return in the RE3 remake? Nemesis gives his hand a rest and lifts Jill into the air with the business end of his rocket launcher. This is objectively a bad situation for Jill Valentine. Speaking of the bio-weapon’s tentacles, this screen shows Nemesis’s whiplike appendages in action. The trailer and screens offer a closer look at the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service (U.B.C.S.). Here we see Tyrell. Will Jill find some shaky ground on which to cooperate with these soldiers representing the insidious Umbrella Corporation? An enemy visually similar to the series’ iconic Hunter enemy prepares to attack U.B.C.S. soldier, Carlos Oliveira. These reptilian monsters traditionally pack a devastating flying leap attack. The enigmatic Dario makes his return in the remake. In the 1999 original, he’s one of the first survivors Jill encounters. Will he have a similar role in the remake? In the mood for seafood and/or donuts? Resident Evil 3 offers glimmers of the destinations Raccoon City once provided its inhabitants. Check out the full gallery here for a look at new character Murphy, Nemesis in action, and more shots of Raccoon City. Resident Evil 3 hits PS4 on April 3, packed with the asymmetrical multiplayer experience Project Resistance. View the full article
  8. Hi everybody, my name is Jonathan Hawkins and I’m the Founder of White Elk and the Creative Director of Eclipse: Edge of Light. Originally showcased as a PS VR demo at PlayStation Experience 2015, the team at White Elk grew to fully bring the game to life as a magical 3+ hour adventure through a strange and foreboding world. Eclipse is a first-person exploration game set on a sentient planet with a dark past. Crash-landing, you awake to find yourself in a dreamscape environment, littered with the remnants of a failed civilization. It’s a world filled with discovery and wonder but shrouded in tragedy and mystery. More Images from Eclipse: Edge of Light The game features many game mechanics that create fun sci-fi exploration — jetpacking through massive canyons, discovering holographic memories, scanning ancient cryptic ruins and throwing a magical artifact to solve puzzles. First released on Daydream in 2017, it went on to receive many nominations and win three mobile VR game of the year awards. We are now very excited to finally bring the game back to PlayStation as both a PS4 and PS VR title with updated graphics. Before founding White Elk, I worked at Sony Santa Monica starting off as an intern and leaving as Lead Level Designer. Over those many years, I helped to create God of War I, II & III with an awesome team that I loved working with. It was always my dream to bring the team back together, so we could continue to create new games for players. With the original Eclipse demo, I started to fulfill that dream. Pitching my good friend and former colleague Cecil Kim on this strange idea for the game, he fell in love. Cecil was the Visual Development Director on God of War, and I loved working with him as he is a visual genius. I knew he could help me realize the vision of the world, with its massive scale and beautiful environments. He art directed the demo and went on to create the full game with his talented team at Section Studios. On God of War 1, I helped to implement the game audio and music. There I learned that half of a game’s experience is audio. So, I reached out to another friend and colleague Mario Lavin who was the Lead Sound Designer on God of War: Ascension. With his help, we brought the world to life, with detailed sound design and technical 3D sound implementation that creates a huge impact on any game, but especially for VR. His audio design helped to establish the mood in the demo and through the rest of the game. Even early on there was a tone that I felt we captured in the PSX demo. A strange eerie feeling, a sense of impending doom but beauty. This feeling was originally inspired by a beautiful track “How We Left Forlandia” by the late composer, Johann Johansson. I collaborated with composer Andrew Prahlow on the music as we were both huge fans of the Johansson’s music and especially of the Fordlandia album. When the game was released in 2017, we both got a chance to see Johannson play a concert on the day the game was originally released. Funny how things work out. Andrew also composed the music for our second game Covert and went on to write the award-winning soundtrack for Outer Wilds, which was released last year on PS4. The final piece of the team-building puzzle was technology. So, I reached out to another God of War alumni, Matt Arrington. He helped to code the original God of War engine from scratch and he brought his amazing talents to single-handedly program Eclipse, by adding new features and expanding the game design pillars. We worked for months to get the feel of the Artifact throw and its many mechanics perfect. Without his help, I would probably still be coding the game today. The path of creating Eclipse was long, challenging, and filled with many setbacks. However, we persevered together. It couldn’t have been made without our fantastic team, partners, and others who worked so hard to bring it to life. We are ecstatic that after all this time, Eclipse has returned to PlayStation and more players will have the chance to experience the magic of this world that we all helped to create.
