  6. Treasure Rangers is a single-player 3D puzzle-solving action platformer launching on PS4 next Monday, in which the player switches between different characters with unique powers. In addition to being a game developer, I am a father of three, my eldest being an eleven-year-old kid with autism. That’s why I always wanted to face the challenge of creating a fun game that includes a character with ASD (autism spectrum disorder). If you embrace the differences and value diversity, then you are ready to join the Treasure Rangers! Something strange is happening in the neighborhood — big holes are appearing everywhere. This is a mystery for the Treasure Rangers to solve! Surprisingly enough, when they go through the holes and into the caves, they obtain superpowers thanks to an ancient energy beneath! Now it’s time to introduce the heroes of the gang. Lucy Lucy’s biggest hobby is geology. When she enters the caves beneath the neighborhood, she channels the power of stones which she can use to turn any member of the crew into a stone statue. She can also push heavy stone blocks to open new paths or solve puzzles. Eric Eric’s powers are all about nature and plants. He can swim really well and is the only one in the gang that can dive, allowing him to find secret passages underwater. But his most powerful skill is dashing, thanks to a wave of leaves he can create. Roxy When Roxy enters the caves, she obtains the power of rock and roll! Now she can use her spirit guitar for a variety of actions such as playing a mid-air riff, allowing her to double-jump and reach higher platforms. Randy Randy enjoys listening to music and playing videogames, but the things he loves most are eating chicken nuggets with fries and going on adventures with his sister Lucy! He is also a non-verbal child with autism. Thanks to his great memory, when Randy walks near symbols or different patterns, he can remember them and use them later to solve puzzles or open doors. Also, if he uses a huge bouncing mushroom as a trampoline, he jumps higher than others, allowing him to reach places others can’t. On the other hand, he refuses to enter zones with loud noises so they must be cleared out first. Light blue butterflies make him lose focus and stand still watching them, so the other members of the crew will need to withdraw these stimuli to proceed. This single player game is all about teamwork and taking decisions on when to use a particular character in order to reach each level’s exit. Also, expect enemies to block your way and don’t be surprised if you encounter big bosses in your mission to save the neighborhood. Join the gang now and be prepared to save the day as Treasure Rangers launches exclusively on PS4 on December 16. View the full article
  7. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare comes out on top of the PS4 chart for November! Congrats to the team at Infinity Ward on their acclaimed campaign (which I thought was excellent) — I know plenty of folks around the office who are positively hooked on this year’s Multiplayer offering, too. Respawn’s foray into a galaxy far, far away, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, took the runner-up spot, followed by Kojima Productions’ massive, ambitious debut Death Stranding. One month left… who do you think will take top honors for December? Oh! And stay tuned in January, when we’ll round up the top downloads for the full year and share ’em here.

  8. I am so excited to announce that Ghost of Tsushima is coming Summer 2020! I joined Sucker Punch as the new communications manager back in March (nice to meet you all!) and I’ve spent my entire time at the studio so far dying for the opportunity to show off more of the game. Today it’s my pleasure to finally do exactly that. I know it’s been a long wait for everyone looking forward to playing, so I want to start by thanking you for your patience. This is a big game for our studio (like…really big) and we’re taking our time to get it right. Today, we debuted a brand-new trailer that delves deeper into the identity our hero is forced to adopt in order to save his home: The Ghost. While Jin starts our game as a samurai, he’ll learn skills and adopt tactics that are decidedly not samurai-like, and you can get a small taste in the footage we revealed today. In the months ahead, we’ll share more about Jin, the threats he faces, the allies that help him along his journey, and what he’ll have to give up to become this new kind of warrior. As I mentioned, Ghost of Tsushima is huge – the biggest game Sucker Punch has ever made by a wide margin. Our trailer includes some quick glimpses of the vibrant, diverse open world you’ll get to explore, but we’ve barely scratched the surface. I’m also happy to reveal our box art today, featuring Jin in his Ghost armor as a growing storm looms behind him. You can also get a peek at some of the gear and upgrades Jin will acquire throughout his journey, which we’ll share many more details about next year. Beyond our new trailer and box art today, we also have some brand-new Ghost of Tsushima merchandise to reveal. At the PlayStation Gear store, you’ll find the first of many new pieces of merch that we’ll have as we get closer to launch. (Please note: unfortunately these new items will not be available for Christmas delivery.) It is so exciting that Ghost of Tsushima will be in your hands next year, and there is still plenty more to share! You can get the latest info by finding your way to Sucker Punch’s Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook accounts, or on Ghost of Tsushima’s official site. View the full article
  9. We founded Counterplay Games with the singular desire to create games focused on high levels of personal mastery, rewarding players for the time invested with our titles. We get to accomplish both with Godfall and the hugely exciting PlayStation 5 hardware. Our goal with Godfall is to reforge fantasy ARPG-style loot progression and third-person melee combat into a whole new genre: The Looter-Slasher. Namely, our game is uniquely one-part gear driven and one-part player-skill driven. Godfall retains the desire for offense-oriented, mastery-driven combat, rewarding you with head-turning, powerful loot that then inspires your next set of character builds. Godfall’s third-person melee combat is fluid, dynamic and interactive, embracing offense over defense. While many games these days create one-off cat-and-mouse challenges for players, we want to broaden combat encounters with enduring replayability. In Godfall you can expect satisfying one-against-many enemy encounters along with challenging head-to-head boss fights. Godfall’s designed from the ground up with co-op in mind. You can play the entire game in solo, duo or trio. Your enemies will respond dynamically, mutating their behavior and attack patterns based on your group size. Our goal for co-op is stronger together, and fun for all. You can expect to hear much more about Godfall next spring. We’re honored to bring Godfall to you on PlayStation 5 in holiday 2020.

  10. The holiday season is upon us, and, while we have nothing against cinnamon and cloves, the Control team has decided to spice it up with a different kind of flavor: the metallic taste of adrenaline. Expeditions, a challenging new game mode for Control, lands tonight on PS4. If you already own the game, all you need to do is turn on your console and download the latest update. Expeditions are a combat-focused, timed game mode that will test out your skill, character build, and loadout in a series of challenges in a far-out region that is a part of the Hiss-infested Black Rock Quarry Threshold. You may have noticed an old-timey jukebox placed in an isolated room close to Central Executive area in the game. If you thought that it might be another Object of Power, you guessed right. After completing the main mission My Brother’s Keeper and getting the Levitate ability, make sure to come back to Central Executive and find your first Jukebox Token. Pop it into the OOP, and you’re off to the races! And race you will, because, after the song starts playing and the Object of Power transports you into the Quarry Threshold, you will only have 25 minutes to complete the Expedition. Some of us at Remedy are claiming that it is impossible to finish on the highest difficulty — are you up for the challenge? Stream and show us! If you run out of time, you’re out. But don’t worry, you can get more Jukebox Tokens by completing Bureau Alerts, Board Countermeasures, or defeating named enemies. If you have some Source to spare, you can buy whole bundles of Jukebox Tokens in the Astral Constructs menu of every Control Point. There are three tiers of Expeditions, unlocked in a sequence. They are progressively more difficult, require more Jukebox Tokens, and yield better and better rewards. You’ll get a chance to earn unique Expedition mods for your Service Weapon and for Jesse, abundant crafting materials, and even a brand-new outfit. Completing each tier will also award you more Jukebox Tokens, so you can continue playing more Expeditions. Every time you go on an Expedition, you will get random gameplay parameters like “all weapons deal +100% damage” or “everyone has 75% less health.” The higher the tier — the more of these parameters come into play. They will encourage you to experiment with your loadout, and sometimes, completely change the way you approach combat. Parameters aren’t the only thing that keeps Expeditions fresh. Our Encounter Director system is in full swing in this game mode, spawning more or fewer enemies — and different kinds of them – depending on where you are and what you are doing. All of the types of Hiss you’ve encountered in Control are present here, so we encourage you to go in prepared: with all Service Weapon forms and abilities unlocked. Expeditions aren’t a game mode for the faint of heart, so if you manage to finish one, claim your bragging rights by posting a screenshot of your end stats with the #ControlRemedy hashtag. Got feedback? Strats? Favorite parameters? A particular Hiss monster you hate? Share in the comments below! View the full article
  11. While we pursued the mythical Velkhana and sought to undo the ecosystem unbalances caused by the Old Everwyrm, something much more dangerous was brewing in the background… the exotic Xeno’jiiva has fully matured into the cataclysmic Safi’jiiva. Awaken the Dragon within Little is known about this mysterious red dragon, but we do have some amazing insight on the Siege style quest and the potential rewards that are set to shake up the way you hunt in Iceborne. Your special assignment is to group up in Seliana’s Gathering Hub and take on the Safi’jiiva Siege. Work together as a team to complete as many Siege objectives as possible. There are some unique gameplay mechanics in this quest and you’ll need to get acquainted with them to maximize the rewards. We highly recommend taking on the Recon Assignment to learn the ropes and practice a bit before the real hunt. Successfully completing this mission will result in Siege rewards that have phenomenal potential: the “awakened” Safi’jiiva weapons! Each weapon comes with a preset distribution of stats (Attack, Elemental, Affinity, etc.), but take it to the Smithy, along with some Dracolites, and you can upgrade it to awaken its true potential! What we have here is one of the most customizable weapon systems in the history of Monster Hunter. Every time you upgrade a Safi’jiiva weapon—and it can be upgraded a lot—you are presented with the option to assign it an “awakened ability.” And these abilities can be mixed, matched and stacked to generate truly powerful creations. You can even unlock Set Bonus skills from other monsters’ armor sets, opening up even more diverse armor build customization. For example, upgrade a Safi’jiiva Great Sword to include Barioth’s Set Bonus, Punishing Draw, then pair it with one single Barioth armor piece (instead of the standard requirement of two) to activate that set bonus. This leaves four additional armor pieces open for you to equip and unlock… say Velkhana’s armor Set Bonus, Frostcraft! And if that wasn’t enough, you can even use the standard augment system to further amplify your power. On the other side of this powerful equation is the Safi’jiiva armor set. This sleek defensive gear offers a simple silhouette design at first glance… but draw your weapon, and it unfurls into a majestic and imposing visage. The set bonus, Dragonvein Awakening brings a devastating, but highly dangerous way to hunt. When you unsheathe your weapon, all your main stats (Attack, Elemental and Affinity) will be raised, but your health gets drained with each attack you perform. Don’t worry too much, though; after landing some hits on your enemy, the second part of Dragonvein Awakening will activate, giving you a surge of health recovery. Warning! You won’t get your health back if you whiff attacks, so be extra careful when donning this armor set. Speaking of gambling your health for power… the 2nd Event Quest crossover with Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds is now live for Iceborne players. By completing the quest “The Survivor,” you’ll be able to craft the new Aloy Shield-Weaver+ full armor set, the Frostclaw Palico gear and upgrade your Stormslinger Prototype into the Adept Stormslinger. If you recall our previous blog covering the first crossover quest, Roy Postma, Art Director of Horizon Zero Dawn, said this: For the feel, we wanted the Improved Stormslinger to behave temperamentally when using its charge-up mechanic. The ability to overcharge the weapon causes the capacitators to glow and spark, eventually resulting in blowback that can cause massive damage to its wielder. So… we actually implemented that gameplay mechanic in Iceborne! With the Adept Stormslinger, you can apply a mod called Power Source Mod that replicates the health recoil function in Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds. However, if you use the Shield-Weaver+ armor alongside this Light Bowgun, you’ll take on reduced damage; a highly recommended pairing. If you’re on the hunt for some really powerful gear in Iceborne, now’s the time to jump in. The Safi’jiiva Siege and the Horizon Zero Dawn crossover quests will be live until January 4, 2020. Happy hunting! View the full article

  13. This year, we’re celebrating Naughty Dog’s 35th anniversary, and as we look back at the games we’ve made, the Jak and Daxter series holds a special place in our history. From the original Jak and Daxter to Jak X: Combat Racing, each game allowed us to try new ideas and evolve and grow as developers. Over the last year, we’ve been thrilled to team up with Limited Run Games to preserve the original classics as physical releases for the PlayStation 4. The response from Jak fans has been incredible with Collector’s Editions selling out within hours and the Standard Editions within the first week. However, we wanted to use this opportunity to not only celebrate the Jak franchise, but to support causes we believe in. Today, I’m excited to announce that we will donate all money received by Naughty Dog from Limited Run Games’ sales of Jak and Daxter, Jak 2, Jak 3, and Jak X: Combat Racing to several incredible charitable organizations. K9 for Warriors Child’s Play Surfrider Foundation LGBT Center of Los Angeles Able Gamers DAGERS We’re proud to lend our support to these groups advocating and advancing important work for accessibility, environmental conservation, veterans, the LGBTQ+ community, hunger, and children’s hospitals. This wouldn’t be possible without you — our amazing fans — or our partners at Sony Interactive Entertainment and Limited Run Games, who have championed and supported this vision from the beginning. Thank you! View the full article
  14. In the almost decade since we introduced Mini Motor Racing to the world, the frantic nitro-fuelled action has found its way into millions of homes and across countless platforms. Now, for the first time ever, these tiny racers will make the jump onto PlayStation 4 with the launch of Mini Motor Racing X next week. If you’re new to the series, Mini Motor Racing (or MMR as we call it, unless we’re trying to pad the word count) is a top-down arcade-style racer made from the gaming DNA of classics such as Super Off Road, RC Pro-AM, and Micro Machines. You race your car in a helter-skelter boost-fest across dozens of different maps, earning cash prizes which you can use to upgrade your cars or unlock new ones. It’s simple, fast, and fun, like the arcade games our developers and many of you grew up with. MMR X brings a whole lot of new content to the franchise, so we figured the best way to cover it quickly is in the time-honored tradition of the listicle. So here, without further ado, are the top five new additions in Mini Motor Racing X! Type X Combat Mode Finally! The most frequent questions we’ve gotten over the years are always along the lines of “Where are the weapons? Why can’t I have weapons? When are you going to add weapons?” Well, here’s your answer. Type X mode lets you play through the entire game with the addition of some wildly destructive weapons. Heat-seeking rockets, unpredictable wrenches, shields, mines, even tornados! And believe me, the feeling of wiping out a friend with a well-timed spanner bounce is satisfying beyond words. But fear not, the beloved original weapon-free racing remains in tact with its own “classic” career and modes. Virtual Reality At this point it’s trite to say VR adds a whole new dimension to a game, but danged if it ain’t true! Looming over the track like a god adds a wonderful sense of perspective, and really drives home the ‘mini’ in Mini Motor Racing. And if looming ain’t your jam, VR lets you jump right onto the car with a hectic first person perspective. Get up close and personal with the world and your competitors, enjoy the thrill of destroying them with a well-timed rocket firsthand. And because we know not everyone is blessed to live in the VR future, we’ve added flatscreen play as well. We even added some new POV perspectives for the flat version, too. Bumper Ball So this may alienate millions of European readers, but I’ve always found soccer (okay, football) to be kinda boring. Turns out the solution is to add cars, and nitro, and ditch all the rules. Bumper Ball is madcap fun and ideal for parties and for ruining friendships and can be played on or offline (but online is where it’s at). Co-op What’s more important than friendship? Victory, naturally. Maybe glory. And success. But still, friendship is in the top 10 at least, which is why we’ve expanded the co-op features of MMR dramatically. You can now play through the entire career mode with a buddy on local couch co-op or online. High five between races, pause to use the bathroom, the options are limitless. We’ve also expanded the quick-mode and party game co-op, so you can battle online with friends or randos. As the old saying goes, a friend in need is a friend indeed. A friend in need of a rocket in the back, that is. PlayStation Power! Coming to PS4 allowed us to go back and rebuild a lot of the game elements. For starters, we’ve collected all the maps from the different versions of the game into one place, for the ultimate MMR experience. Then we rebuilt them with new textures, meshes, graphical effects, and weather systems. The game has never looked better, and a good thing too, as VR lets you see the detail like never before. And we didn’t forget about PS4 Pro support either. In flat screen players will experience ultra-crisp full 4K support running at a buttery 60 frames per second. And in VR? A glorious 120 frames per second to ensure maximum comfort and immersion. We also were able to add some cool new control schemes. Along with the standard control stick method we’ve got full PlayStation Move support so players can use a virtual wheel or for the true enthusiasts, an authentic RC controller. You know the ones, with the trigger grip and the steering wheel in the middle shaped inexplicably like a tire? A unique way to play to be sure, but as real as it gets when it comes to tiny race cars. Phew, what a list. And that’s just the overview. There’s plenty more to dig into, so whether you’re a first time player or a devoted fan, this is the perfect time to get in on the action. Mini Motor Racing X is the pinnacle of arcade racer fun, and it’s just the beginning… View the full article
  15. Like one of its own monstrous Behemoths: Dauntless just keeps growing. With every update, narrative, game design, and art come together to create interesting experiences for our players. So, what’s next? “For Escalation, we’re sending players into the depths of the Maelstrom, a storm of epic proportions. There, aetheric pressures cause physics to pretty much break, allowing Behemoths to grow terrifyingly powerful,” says Dauntless writer, Cory Herndon. The pressure of the Maelstrom’s heart causes normal archonite to compress into much denser lodestones that have their own powerful, and very unstable, aetheric fields. “Now that the residents of Ramsgate have learned what’s going on,” continues Herndon, “they aren’t taking any chances.” These Behemoths must be vanquished, thus destroying these unstable islands. Players will have to storm the storm, in a sense, taking on one Behemoth after another, sometimes in pairs. Thankfully, they’ll have help in the form of amps. After a Behemoth is slain in Escalation, their store of aether is released and absorbed by nearby lodestones. These massive crystals offer each slayer a boon for the rest of their run. These are amps, passive buffs that aid the player. “We wanted to distill lots of different roguelike elements and see what would work well in our game,” states Travis Day, Lead Designer. “After you finish a run, you get a bunch of experience that you can use to strengthen these amps. It’s meant to give the Slayer a progression system where they’re constantly unlocking new things and improving the amps they find in Escalation runs.” Failure isn’t the end in Escalation. It’s a stepping stone. These amps will also help players with the final encounter: the brand-new Malkarion. It’s important to choose the right amps before tackling this new enemy. Choose wisely, Slayers! “We also wanted these hunts to be randomized so that they’re a varied experience with nice, big, meaty rewards for the players,” says Day. Escalation themes will change over time, offering different rewards, enemies, and amps. It wasn’t all clear skies for the developers, though. Due to the rise of Behemoth activity, players will be challenging more than one enemy at a time, and with dual Behemoth battles being added to the game, the developers at Phoenix Labs had their work cut out for them. “Our Behemoths weren’t inherently built to be fought two at a time, so they did lots of things that felt unfair,” continues Day. “We spent a lot of time figuring out how to remedy these problems. An example of this was projectiles shooting through a Behemoth. Especially if you’re hitting it in the face, it didn’t feel good. We had to ask ourselves, should all projectiles impact the Behemoths? And if they do, do they damage them? The answer was yes to both.” Meanwhile, a few desks down from Day, the art team had begun breathing life into the Maelstrom. “We wanted players to feel compelled to take the fight deeper into the Maelstrom than ever before,” explains Jen Morgan, a Principal Environment Artist at Phoenix Labs. “The mood we were going for was wild, chaotic, and unpredictable with an escalating sense of danger. The closer a player gets to the eye of the storm, the more intense it would get. Its landscape is shattering apart, revealing the aether-charged lodestones that are the source of the island’s unpredictable qualities.” These narrative, design, and artistic pillars will stand over time, but the theme of each Escalation will change. “We want each version of the Escalation experience to go with a high-level theme. At the start, it will be shock aether but expect a different element in the future, and maybe even new enemies,” says Morgan. As Escalation continues, it will evolve and grow, just like everything else in the world of Dauntless. View the full article
