  1. When presented with the opportunity to work with an expansive franchise such as Doctor Who, deciding where to begin can easily become a daunting task. After weeks of research involving copious amounts of reading and episode-watching (in fairness, it’s a serious perk of my job!), we presented three possible routes to take for this VR experience. On one end of the spectrum, a classic Who-focused concept involving fan-favorite characters, and the other end looking into the new show direction and incarnation of the Doctor. We all agreed on the latter and to fit in somewhere after series 11 but with some classic monsters along the way. One of these was a definite must-have… The Weeping Angels – mysterious predators who move very quickly and silently towards their prey when unobserved, but become “quantum locked” and freeze when observed. Originally inspired by playground games such as Statues, Red Light Green Light, and Grandmother’s Footsteps, it’s perfect for the medium of VR, which uses a player’s head rotation and probably the only way you could actually get to experience their terror outside of the screen. We love the Angels episodes and they’re behind the reason we got to work on this project initially. In 2017, we invited the BBC into the studio to try an early concept demo of a VR experience we were working on. From there we started talking about Doctor Who and how well the show translated into this new medium. At its best, VR acts like a teleportation device allowing players to travel to distant worlds, faraway places and go on incredible adventures in space and time. It was obvious to us straight away in that meeting that Doctor Who would translate into a perfect VR title. By chance, The Doctor Who Experience, a live attraction in Cardiff that documented the show’s 55-year history and exhibited many of its props, sets, and characters was about to close. We got talking about photogrammetry and next thing you know we were down in Cardiff creating a digital record of the whole experience. It’s all on a hard drive in our office. With access to a wealth of incredible data, we couldn’t help ourselves and made a Weeping Angels demo in VR, and things just snowballed from there. One of the main challenges was how to balance the timings of looking away and how quickly the Angels advance in turn. In the show’s lore, they can move incredibly fast but in gameplay that can prove incredibly frustrating. There’s a balance between the distance they need to travel and the tension that ensues. We’re also playing with lighting just to add to the fear — if you’re suddenly dropped into darkness, they can change tactics and adjust their pathway. On the other hand, if all you do is stand on a spot and stare at a statue, then you’re looking at the world’s longest standoff. This means we have to keep the player on their toes, making you interact with items that require you to change direction. Then it’s about the setup of the scene, the environment and the accompanying sound effects from the show to make it feel authentic. The Angel models themselves are based on the original outfits from the show’s costume archives which were scanned through photogrammetry techniques to match as closely as possible. Doctor Who: The Edge of Time releases tomorrow on PS VR and we can’t wait for you to jump in the Tardis and take it for a spin. View the full article

  5. We are happy to announce that the award-winning narrative game, Where the Water Tastes Like Wine, is coming to PlayStation on December 2! Where the Water Tastes Like Wine is a game about wandering Depression-era America, collecting stories ranging from tales of terrifying ghost children to the legend of Pecos Bill. After gathering these tales, you’ll share them across the campfire with the characters you meet. The game has 16 different characters, and in a unique twist, each was written by a different writer. Here are a few: There’s Jimmy, the wandering preacher. Written by Austin Walker, Jimmy tells the player about his family, his faith, and the communities that he interacts with along the way. He also talks about his time in World War I, and because Austin is a wrestling fan, he talks about the wrestling circuit, and his father’s time performing on it. There’s Althea, the blues performer. She sells her soul to the Devil to be the best, but his deal doesn’t work out so well for her. But is it any worse than her alternatives? The talented Gita Jackson wrote her story, and it’s an amazing ride. The voice actor Kimberly Brooks (Mass Effect 3) brings Althea to life as she tells you her story. And Bertha, the dust bowl refugee. She’s played by Cissy Jones (Firewatch), and written by Emily Short. Bertha’s farm in Oklahoma fails when the droughts and winds hit, tearing up the ground and making life nearly impossible in the new wasteland. She goes to California in search of a better life for her and her family, but at every stage she’s denied fair pay, places to live, and almost everything she needs. And then there’s Quinn, the hobo kid. They were kicked out of home, like many older children when the Great Depression hit, and now they ride the rails with their trusty dogs – and a sharp knife. Voiced by the amazing Melissa Hutchison (The Walking Dead) and written by Claris Cyarron, they tell the player stories of travel and life as a hobo in the worst hard times the US has ever seen. There’s far more to these four stories, and there are twelve more characters to meet! And in addition, there’s the person who gives you your quest — the mysterious wolf. Voiced by Sting, the wolf-headed man wins a game of poker and consequently curses you to wander the land, spreading the stories you find far and wide. You’ll see him at other times, too — each time you succumb to hunger or exhaustion, or if one of your adventures leads you to death. And then one final time when you finish your task… I hope you find what you’re looking for! View the full article
  6. In Death Stranding, the herculean task of reconnecting humanity is far from the only burden placed upon your shoulders. Piled on top of this metaphorical weight is the real-world heft of countless packages that must reach their destination. Tucked inside these parcels are food, games, supplies, medicine, data — anything that splintered citizens might need to feel like they’re truly connected to a wider civilization. Like any pioneering journey, the first steps across this fractured America are uncertain. Hoofing precious cargo across rough terrain can be challenging, so we’ve gathered a handful of general tips and suggestions that’ll have you reconnecting people in no time. Delivery Tips Once you have the resources to make multiple deliveries per trip, hit ‘em hard. Delivering requested goods will often unlock enhanced tools, fun cosmetic options, interesting plot points with survivors, and an increased chiral connection for that area. The stronger the connection, the more chiral bandwidth that’s available for online structures like bridges, roads, watchtowers, and more. These structures can turn previously arduous treks into simple trips, and it’s all thanks to you and other Death Stranding players making those deliveries. Whether you’re delivering requested goods or lost cargo found in the wild, these will net you Likes that increase your reputation as a transporter. As this rating rises, your cargo capacity (among other things) will improve. Give a little, get a little! Anytime you’re on the move, you should have an open order. Always have something on your back, on the bike, or in the truck. If you’re especially generous, steal a MULE truck and start loading it with all their ill-gotten goods for huge Santa Claus-style deliveries up and down the highway. Speaking of the highway, auto pavers demand a lot of resources, but you’ll be rolling in Likes if you activate a section. As other players make use of the highly convenient path, you’ll receive notifications and Likes, yet another sign that you’re not rebuilding America alone. Find a spot that needs a ladder or rope anchor? You could replicate your own at a base, sure, but also check out online postboxes, MULE postboxes (and MULEs themselves) and share lockers. The whole world is playing alongside you, so odds are someone tossed a ladder your way. The same goes for transportation – borrow someone else’s reverse-trike, but down the line maybe toss one of your own in there to return the favor. Have too much stuff, but still want to grab more? Try locating a Postbox where you can securely stash items out in the wild, then return when you have a vehicle or more carrying capacity. Handling Your Cargo When accepting deliveries, be mindful of how many items are in the order. Some requests may contain one lightweight object, while others could include a dozen hefty containers best suited for a vehicle. Optimize your cargo load. Initially, this means being mindful of which items are stacked on your back versus attached to brackets on your shoulders and hips. Later on, use vehicles, pouches and other gear to efficiently balance your load. Even if you can bear the weight, consider the height of all those packages. Cargo can poke outside of cover, compromising your position to MULEs, and ladders extend a bit higher when hung on your tool rack instead of on your back. Making sharp turns can also be tricky if you’re overloaded. Recklessness can lead to tumbles and damaged cargo. L2 and R2 are lifesavers! Maintaining balance is key, but these steadying motions also let you regain stamina while in waist-deep water or during a steep climb. Battling BTs Early on, avoiding BTs is crucial. The world just doesn’t have a surefire way to deal with them in a combat situation. So, keep your eyes on your Odradek scanner. It points ‘em out and spins like crazy when they’re near. Hold your breath and walk slowly to sneak on by. Successfully sneak by without an encounter and your connection to BB can improve too. If you’re grabbed, you can break free or let them drag you into battle. Taking down one of the larger BTs will shower the area in chiral crystals and vanquish the whole BT zone for a short period. If you have the appropriate weapons, it’s a nice way to obtain crystals and clear out the area. Have a speed skeleton or a reverse trike? You can probably outrun the encounter altogether. But if your bike is gobbled up, make sure to come back after the tar subsides – your goods will still be there. Make sure you’re using the shower and restroom facilities when you stay in a private room. Believe it or not, your support team will, uh, make use of your time in there to create some handy items. Finally, make those deliveries! You never know who might come up with a new way to combat BTs or make your life easier in some other way. Minding Mules Watch for yellow poles. These sensors ping your package locations, revealing your location to cargo-obsessed MULEs. Avoid the poles at all costs, and get ready to break line of sight or hide in tall grass if you set one off. Make use of scattered watchtowers (or make your own) to keep a vigilant eye out for MULE encampments. These guys want your packages, and they can sour a promising delivery mission fast. Serpentine! Move unpredictably when outrunning MULEs, as their electrified spears can knock your packages loose. Same goes for vehicles, which can be temporarily decommissioned from MULE electrical attacks. Bola to freedom. If you’re swarmed by multiple MULEs, lean on the Bola gun to bind up immediate threats. Don’t dally, though, as more MULE baddies are usually on the way. If you’re about to raid a MULE camp for a mission (or just to take what you can), consider going in without any delivery cargo on hand. Bring weapons, but leave lots of space for that sweet, sweet cargo you’ll obtain by infiltrating their base. View the full article
  7. Don’t pause! Press play! Bringing new music and new collaborations to Beat Saber is always so much fun and we are proud to welcome another popular video game title on board. There is something, what brings Beat Saber and Rocket League together: both well-known video game hits defining its genres; set in the futuristic dark scene; the competitive character is what makes the game experience even better, and of course: our teams just love pulsing beats boosting the immersion to the next level. Rocket League has always been our favorite PC game, so the moment we connected with Psyonix and Monstercat teams and discussed potential collaboration, we knew it’s gonna be siiick! And with the support of Monstercat, what could go wrong? Our goal was to connect these three worlds, who have similar values, philosophy and feel the same about the music and its importance in the game industry. Together, we created a tracklist of songs, which are loved by the players around the world and will be a great fit for Beat Saber. Rocket League x Monstercat Music Pack contains six pumping tracks from Rocket League together with brand new Rocket League-inspired custom environment. Check out our tracklist: Tokyo Machine – ‘PLAY’ Stephen Walking – ‘Glide’ Slushii – ‘LUV U NEED U’ Tokyo Machine – ‘ROCK IT’ Dion Timmer – ‘Shiawase’ Slushii & Dion Timmer – ‘Test Me’ Our selection is a combination of the most popular tracks together mixed with fresh new releases. Our players can be excited, because their favorite artist Tokio Machine is making a return with two insane songs ‘PLAY’ and ‘ROCK IT.’ You won’t stop moving! Alongside today’s release in Beat Saber, Rocket League is adding two new customization items into the game. Starting today (10:00am PST), Rocket League players will be able to get free customization: Topper and Boost with iconic Beat Saber cubes and original slashing sounds. Just log into Rocket League to get the items and celebrate with us! The Rocket League x Monstercat Music Pack is available at PlayStation Store right now and it’s an absolute must-have for every true petrolhead. GO TRY IT! View the full article
  8. In the scattered world of Death Stranding, it stands to reason there aren’t many occasions to meet up and discuss art, games, and shared experiences. Thankfully, for us in the real world, the apocalyptic imagery that fuels the game is used to pull us together rather than push us apart. Fans are encouraged to visit Fractured Worlds: The Art of Death Stranding, a gallery in New York City loaded with behind-the-scenes production info, official artwork, and fan art inspired by the game. Get a peek inside the gallery with these photos, which I snapped from within its very walls: Full Gallery The space is open from 11:30AM-9:30PM, November 6-9, with a limited number of walk-up guests admitted each day. Reserve your space by visiting the RSVP site. Our shared mission to reconnect America begins this Friday. Are you up for the journey? View the full article
  9. Last Labyrinth is an escape-adventure title releasing worldwide on PlayStation VR next Wednesday, November 13. The team behind the title includes creators whose previous works include PlayStation titles such as ICO, The Last Guardian, Shadow of the Colossus, Puppeteer, and the Doko Demo Issyo series. Ahead of the game’s release, we sat down with Producer/Director Hiromichi Takahashi, Lead Character Animator Atsuko Fukuyama and Director/Game Designer Tetsuya Watanabe for an exclusive interview to discuss their new project. Director Hiromichi Takahashi, can you give us an overview of the game as well as its themes? Hiromichi Takahashi: Simply put, Last Labyrinth is a VR escape-adventure game. Players are tied to a wheelchair and have to work together with a mysterious girl named Katia, in order to solve puzzles and escape from the mansion they are trapped in. It’s our attempt at creating a new type of VR experience. There are also various portrayals of death in the game. When players solve puzzles incorrectly, both the player and Katia meet their ends in various gruesome ways. Communication and dis-communication, life and death are woven into the game’s themes. So one of the themes is “dis-communication,” which sounds like a pretty interesting concept to build a game around. What made you decide to do this? Hiromichi Takahashi: Communicating with “other beings” has been a constant theme throughout my career as a developer. Doko Demo Issyo featured Toro, better known as the Sony Cat, and the main theme was about conversing and communicating with animated characters. It never got released overseas, unfortunately. For Last Labyrinth, we thought about what forms of communication could utilize the uniqueness of PS VR, and we decided that “non-verbal communication” would be a suitable theme. Katia speaks in an unknown language, so players cannot communicate with her through words. We made this choice so players would experience non-verbal communication, regardless of the languages they speak. More specifically, players communicate with Katia through body language; when working together on puzzles, Katia will indicate that she’s seeking the players input through her movements and reactions, and players respond by literally nodding or shaking their heads to reply yes or no. It’s a design that only works in VR. In the game, players have a laser pointer attached to their heads, which shines in the direction they look at. Players can use it to point at items or areas of interest for Katia to interact with. The laser can be activated, and the game played, with either two PS Move controllers or a DualShock 4 controller. Which brings us to Atsuko Fukuyama, the Lead Character Animator. In the past, you’ve worked on characters such as Yorda from ICO and Agro from Shadow of the Colossus, both well-known examples of partner characters who use “non-verbal communication.” Now that Katia is taking up that role, so to speak, are there any aspects you’re focusing on when creating her animations? Atsuko Fukuyama: Takahashi told me to create Katia in the image of a young girl, somewhere between 10 to 12 years old. It’s the period of time when you’re transitioning from childhood to adulthood, so I wanted to reflect that in Katia’s body language. She looks like an adult when standing still, but when running or moving her actions are closer to that of a child’s. The player is also constantly staring at Katia because of the way the game is designed, which means we risk making her feel like just another NPC if we used the same movements repeatedly. We added a lot of variations so that players will feel like she’s an actual, living partner. For the animations to feel natural, I worked together with the engineers and game designers, which was the same in my previous works. There was a lot of back-and-forth between the team to get Katia to feel lifelike. Having an interesting concept is one thing, but building a game that works around it is a different story, a challenge handled by the director, Tetsuya Watanabe. What are the challenges of designing for a fairly unique game like Last Labyrinth, in PS VR nonetheless? Tetsuya Watanabe: How to guide player vision, meaning where they look, is the first thing that comes to mind. Compared to non-VR games, you don’t have the option of forcing the camera to view a specific direction. We have to encourage players to look where we want them to, through events and design. That’s really hard. On the flip-side, it heightens the level of player immersion significantly, because now they’re seeing and experiencing events of their own will. Compared to other VR titles that allow free-roaming movement, we have to rely on movement, design and lifelike animation to immerse the player in the world of Last Labyrinth, and I think we’ve managed to achieve that. It’s interesting that you’d choose to do a VR title, given that it’s still a comparatively new market. Any insights as to why you chose this medium? Hiromichi Takahashi: We wanted players to have a never-before, completely new experience through PS VR. There still aren’t enough VR titles that make full use of the medium, and we also need more unique VR games. We figured that we should start by making one ourselves, a unique experience that only VR can deliver, which is something I feel we’ve got with Last Labyrinth. Finally, what do you hope players to experience on November 13? Any surprises? Atsuko Fukuyama: It hasn’t been shown before yet, but in the game, there’s a small bell in their left hand that players can ring to get Katia to come close, so if they ever get tired of solving puzzles, I want players to relax with her. Tetsuya Watanabe: I’d like them to experience the type of unrealness that only a VR title can give. Life and Death is all around you in Last Labyrinth, and I hope they’ll look forward to enjoying it first-hand. Hiromichi Takahashi: I hope they’ll enjoy communicating with Katia, and spending time with her. We want players to experience all of the journeys with Katia, so please try for all the endings.

  10. PlayStation Bandicoots, it’s time to gas up and hit the track in the latest Grand Prix season* for Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled — the Neon Circus Grand Prix! This Grand Prix starts at 7AM PST (3PM UTC) this Friday, November 8**. As always, the Neon Carnival Grand Prix comes at no additional cost to anyone who’s purchased Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled and downloads the update. First and foremost, you’ll want to experience Koala Carnival, the new track that comes along with this Grand Prix. Before you get out there, we’ve got some track-mastering tips and all the details on the new content. Back to the Track It’s a circus or “carnival” of fun on the new track, Koala Carnival! A new character, Koala Kong – the headliner of this season’s Nitro Gauge reward set – is the master of ceremonies on this course that is as colorful as it is death-defying. Race around this track fit for a circus hand while dodging cannon bursts, avoiding fire blasts from the ground, and be the first to cross the finish line. Also, don’t forget to put on a spectacle… this is the circus after all. On Koala Carnival, you can get in the race with three new karts that are available in the Neon Circus Grand Prix: The Nitro Bumper Kart, the Pressurizer, and the Daredevil. If you’d like to channel some carnival, pick up the Nitro Bumper Kart in the Pit Stop. Or earn the Daredevil and Pressurizer – a Crash Tag Team Racing throwback – through the Nitro Gauge. Circus Tricks and Tips Want to be a master of the Koala Carnival? Try out these three tips to see if you can outrace the competition: Track Knowledge: With any track, knowing the curves, bends, and details makes it that much easier to navigate. Make your first few races on Koala Carnival a “Crash” course in the track, so you can work your way to being on top of the big top. Power-Ups: Collecting power-ups during the race can be the difference in getting an edge on the competition. Consider always grabbing a power-up — you never know it may just what you need. Practice: Like all things, mastery takes time. Practice the track and try out different karts, driving styles, and routes to find what works best for you. Rally Up and Get Rings A new game mode that puts your skills and endurance to the test – Ring Rally has arrived with the Neon Circus Grand Prix as a new game mode. The time continually counts down from the moment you take off, making this a race to survive the longest and earn a high score. Time is added onto the clock for each ring you collect, and rings give you a boost to help you get down the track even quicker. Earn points in this mode by collecting rings and by finishing a lap with the time remaining on the clock to set a new record. In each successive lap the rings – laid out on the track’s optimal route – get smaller, making it even harder to collect and keep on driving. Endure on the track as long as you can and once you clock in a time face the ultimate challenge: can you beat your own record? If you’re looking for some tips to master Ring Rally, we’ve got you covered: Boost Power: The more you boost, the faster you go. Collect the rings to get boosts and help maintain top speed. Get Those Rings: The goal if Ring Rally is to finish each lap and gain a high score. Rings add seconds on to your timer and give you more points making them twice as important. Navigate: Some shortcuts contain rings, others don’t. Choose your path wisely to master the best route on the track and take that knowledge into other game modes. Style Points: Sometimes you might need to change up your driving style to clock in the best time. Don’t be afraid to switch things up and experiment to find what works best. Keep On Going: Each lap, the rings get smaller and smaller, upping the challenge to collect them. Consider changing your strategy and speed as you progress to keep hitting those rings. Hit the Big Top Koala Carnival and the Ring Rally aren’t the only pieces of new content in the Neon Circus Grand Prix. There’s a new set of rewards in the Nitro Gauge, a host of Challenges to earn Nitro Points and a new set of customization items in the Pit Stop — most importantly, new fan-favorite racers make their way to the scene with Pasadena O’Possum, Ebenezer Von Clutch and Koala Kong, himself! Plus, you have a chance to earn this season’s Signature Decal and Champion Kart (if you don’t already own it) if you make it to the top 5% of the Neon Circus Grand Prix Champion or Nitro Leaderboards. Experience the joy and the fun of the Neon Circus Grand Prix in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. Good Luck, Bandicoots! *Internet required for Grand Prix, Wumpa Coins, Nitro Points, online multiplayer (gaming subscription service sold separately), access to the Pit Stop and other features. **Grand Prix content and timing subject to change.

  11. Some big new games launched in October, and three of those big new games topped the PS4 charts at PlayStation Store. Congratulations to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (well-deserved, I’d say), Ghost Recon Breakpoint, and The Outer Worlds! No big surprises elsewhere, as Beat Saber and Fortnite continue to dominate the PS VR and free-to-play lists. Finally, Destiny 2: Shadowkeep claimed the number 2 spot on the DLC / Expansions side.

  12. Valfaris is an action-platformer drenched in gore and heavy metal launching on PS4 today. The hero is Therion – a long-haired space warrior on a mission to kill everything that either a) moves, or b) gets in his way. And it’s a tough game. But is it tougher than you? Only you can answer that. Either way – BRING IT ON! (but do yourself a favor and take heed of these tips first, yeah?) 1. Use Resurrection Idols to either power up or play safe Resurrection Idols are a resource you’ll find around Valfaris that can be used in a variety of different ways. Primarily, they function as save tokens – reach a checkpoint and you must spend a Resurrection Idol to activate it. However, there’s a risk/reward system in play and you can – if you wish – choose not to activate a checkpoint and save yourself the cost of a Resurrection Idol. Here’s Therion standing between a Resurrection Idol (on the left) and a checkpoint: The reward for doing this is a more powerful Therion – the more Resurrection Idols he’s carrying, the greater his Health and Energy levels are. The risk is having to respawn at the last checkpoint you activated, which may not be the nearest one and consequently requires more retracing of steps. Resurrection Idols can also be exchanged at the end of each level for another of the game’s resources – Blood Metal. These are used to upgrade Therion’s weapons, so the more Blood Metal you have, the faster you can upgrade for more powerful tools of destruction. Here’s Therion exchanging Resurrection Idols for Blood Metal at the end of a level. Note how the Health and Energy bars in the top-left corner shrink as the Idols are used: How you choose to use Resurrection Idols is entirely up to you – power up or play safe? 2. Seek out those secret areas Bit of an obvious one this, but worth a mention all the same – there are secret areas to discover around Valfaris and they are well worth hunting for. They always reward intrepid players with either a weapon, Blood Metal, Resurrection Idol, or other kind of pick-up. And there’s also a Silver Trophy to be nabbed for finding all 22 secret areas in a single playthrough. To get you off to a good start, here are some giant arrows showing where you can find the four secret areas in Valfaris’ first level: Landing Pad secret area #01 – smash the crates to reveal a hidden room, where you’ll find a Blood Metal: Landing Pad secret area #02 – drop through that gap, but beware as there’s a large enemy lurking down there: Landing Pad secret area #03 – kill the bad doggy to open the door behind it: Landing Pad secret area #04 – use the hanging cables to gain access to the gap in the ceiling: 3. Blood Metal makes your weapons EVEN MORE METAL With names such as ‘Bringer of Mayhem’ and ‘Hellwraith’, it’s no surprise the weapons in Valfaris are serious bits of ass-kicking kit. There are 19 different weapons spread across three different classes – Primary, Melee, and Destroyer – and all of them can be upgraded for even more extreme means of extermination. Weapons start at Rank 1 and can be powered-up to Rank 3 using Blood Metal – a valuable resource that can be found hidden around Valfaris, collected from some downed enemies, or obtained in exchange for Resurrection Idols at the end of a level. It’s possible to upgrade weapons to Rank 4, although to do so requires a much rarer material called ‘Blood of Valfaris’ and these should really be reserved for fully upgrading your most favourite kill-toys. As tempting as it is to spend any Blood Metal you find as quickly as possible on upgrading your weapons, it’s worth waiting until you’ve found and tried a few other weapons besides your starters. You can’t retrieve Blood Metal once it’s been spent, so you want to make sure you’re using the material on your preferred weapons. I tend to hoard all my Blood Metal until obtaining the Envoy of Destruction, a Destroyer class rocket launcher, towards the end of the second level and then spend all of them at once upgrading it as much as possible. 4. Exploit the full power of the shield In addition to your selected Primary, Melee, and Destroyer weapons, you also have a shield that can be used both defensively and offensively. As you’d expect, keeping the shield activated protects Therion from incoming projectiles and melee attacks, at least until its energy is fully depleted (it loses energy each time it takes a hit). In addition to its basic function as a shield, if you activate it just before a projectile makes contact, the incoming missile or missiles become held in the shield’s stasis field. The trapped projectile/s can then be deflected back towards the enemy by deactivating the shield. This ‘shield counter-blast’ move is most definitely worth mastering (see it in action in the gif above). And when things get up close and personal, the shield can be used not just to avoid taking damage from an incoming melee attack, but to also temporarily stun the would-be assailant, giving you an opportunity to deliver a deadly riposte. 5. Don’t let your Destroyer class weapon go hungry – FEED IT ENERGY! All the weapons are a whole heap of fun to use, but it’s the super-powered Destroyer class guns that are the deadliest. However, unlike the Primary class weapons, these heavy-duty bad boys drain Energy and won’t work if there’s not enough juice to power them. In order to keep Energy replenished and your Destroyer class weapon in business, you need to use your Melee class weapon – any enemies you slay with it release blue orbs of Energy which are absorbed by Therion. Get in the habit of constantly switching between using your Melee and Destroyer weapons – that way you’ll prevent your Energy from becoming fully depleted. And it’s not just enemies that release Energy when whacked – lights, crates, turrets, neon pink sacs of alien goo… if it can be destroyed with a sword, then it’ll leak Energy. So, if your Destroyer’s hungry and in need of an Energy boost, whip out your blade and get busy! 6. Keep your ‘Clear Game’ save – Full Metal Mode is coming! When you beat Valfaris – yes, you can do it! – be sure to keep the ‘Clear Game’ save file. Why? Well, there’s a New Game+ mode called ‘Full Metal Mode’ currently in development that we’ll be releasing as a free update in the not-too-distant future and it will be automatically unlocked if you’ve already completed the game. In Full Metal Mode, all weapons, upgrades, and upgrade items are carried over, so you’ll be nicely equipped and powered-up right from the get-go. There will also be an additional Destroyer class weapon to eviscerate foes with. However, enemies and bosses will be tougher and more aggressive, and Therion will take more damage, so get ready for a challenge that’s even more metal i.e. prepare to die a lot all over again! Valfaris is available to download now from PlayStation Store. Have fun and keep it metal! View the full article

  18. When we first set out to build Citadel: Forged With Fire over four years ago, we had two clear goals in mind: Create the ultimate fantasy sandbox game Make the world online with players from around the world Today, I think we have accomplished those goals and I couldn’t be more excited to show you what this game is all about. The list of things you can do as a newly minted Wizard in Citadel: Forged With Fire is absolutely enormous, but there are a couple features I wanted to talk about today: Castle Building and Dragons. In Citadel, players are given a massive world full of resources to explore and conquer. One of the first things you’ll want to do is find a safe plot of land to build a shelter. Harvest more resources and you can transform that basic shelter into a magical home. Want to go one step further? Keep going and you can build yourself a proper castle. We have given players have a wide array of tools at their disposal, all rooted in magic. You can build anything you like in our grid-based construction system that is as easy to use as it is flexible. We have seen some really crazy designs over the years, and can’t wait to see what designs you come up with. Be sure to fortify your castle with defenses, traps and hidden passageways, and don’t forget to claim ownership by placing down your throne! Aside from building castles, the next thing I wanted to show you about Citadel is our dragons. We’ve got a lot of fantastical creatures to interact with, but my personal favorite thing to do is fly around on the back of a dragon. Taming a dragon isn’t easy but if you can pull it off, it is one of the coolest parts of the game. First, I’d recommend using a spell imbued with a Frozen Essence – hit a dragon with one of those spells to slow it down. Next, use your Pacify spell to tame the dragon. Once you have taken control your dragon, make sure to give it a name and equip it with a saddle. The only thing left to do is jump on board, fly high into the sky and pilot your dragon across the land, raining fire down on your enemies below. There’s nothing more intimidating than flying up to someone else’s castle on the back of your trusty dragon, ready to open fire. Better yet, team up with friends online and fly your dragons together, side by side. This is just a taste of what you can do in Citadel and I can’t wait to see what kind of castles you build (and destroy!). See you in the game. View the full article

  20. Shenmue III releases on PS4 on November 19 — that’s less than three weeks! — continuing the story of one of gaming’s most influential series. We had a chance to speak with Yu Suzuki, the legendary designer whose name is attached to dozens of titles including Virtua Fighter, Out Run, Daytona USA, and After Burner — and who more recently (relatively speaking) directed the original Shenmue, its 2001 sequel, and now Shenmue III. Read on to learn about Suzuki san’s plans for the Shenmue series, the projects he’s most proud of, and what he really thinks of forklifts. PlayStation.Blog: Can you tell us about how you got your start in games, and how that led to the development of the original Shenmue? Yu Suzuki: At first, I was aiming for a job as a system engineer of large computer system at the time and had some interviews, but I also took one interview for a video game company—that company happened to be SEGA. As the interviewer was intriguing, I decided to choose SEGA. My earlier works focused almost exclusively on arcade games where gameplay time is rather short, and the impetus came when I found myself wanting to do a home console RPG where I could take the proper time to get messages across. PSB: Is Shenmue III planned as the final game in the series, or have you explored the idea of continuing Ryo’s story in the future? YS: The series will not end with Shenmue 3. Rushing to tie up the plot here would have made for a flat game. And I hope to continue the series as long as people are interested. PSB: Revisiting PlayStation’s 2015 E3 press conference announcement, it’s still emotional watching videos of fans’ reactions to the announcement of Shenmue III. Looking back four years later, what kind of effect did that outpouring of fan support have on you, or on the development of the game? YS: I made the game with that image of joyful fans always in mind, and it made Shenmue III grew in scale and quality. I feel confident that we made an even better Shenmue game. PSB: You’ve been directly involved in some of the most influential games of all time over the past 35 years, including Outrun, Virtua Fighter, Daytona USA, and, of course, Shenmue — among many, many others. Looking back, what are some of the projects you’ve worked on that you’re most proud of? YS: That would be the Virtua Fighter and Shenmue series. And I really hope that now with Shenmue III, it will again find a place in the hearts of everyone who plays it. PSB: Are there any secrets you hid in any of your past games that remain undiscovered? YS: Yes, there are. (But they remain secrets.) PSB: Having been such a prominent figure in the gaming industry since its inception, are there any trends or technology you’ve seen develop that you’re particularly curious about or interested in? YS: Brainwave sensors, holography, AI, automobiles and foldable screen devices would be a few. PSB: What is the emotion you hope players feel immediately after finishing Shenmue III? Do you think most players will have a similar reaction to it? YS: It would be nice if players felt like coming back from a journey. If you hurry through the game, there is a good chance it will just stress you out. Rather, by taking your time, the experience will be one of trying all the different things the game has to offer. PSB: The original Shenmue was seen as an advancement both in terms of technology and storytelling. Did you approach that game’s development from the technological or narrative side first? What about with Shenmue III? YS: Many of the times you want to do something new, it necessitates new technology and taking on new challenges. With Shenmue III, there were again new challenges we took on. PSB: What’s something you think Shenmue has contributed to the overall DNA of the gaming industry, be it a specific mechanic, a way of telling a story, including arcade-faithful ports of retro classics, or something else entirely? YS: After Shenmue I & II, the word “open world” came about. In that one world, there were lots of different game elements you could have fun with. Many people have said that kind of style had a big impact on games to come, and for that I feel highly honored. PSB: How has the combat system of Shenmue III evolved since you first began the project? YS: To make the combat system of Shenmue III fit as an RPG game, we needed to make the battle engine from scratch. The system is designed so that even if you are someone who is not necessarily good at fighting games, by raising your level you can be confident that you can move the story along. People who are used to the VF2 engine, for example, may not feel enough, but this is how I feel it should be evolving in Shenmue. PSB: Has your perspective on forklifts changed at all in the past 20 years? YS: Why does the forklift get singled out for so much love and attention? That fact is still beyond me. (laughs) PSB: Can you tell us about the development of the soundtrack for Shenmue III? Did you follow a similar process to that which you did for previous games in the series? YS: This time around it may seem like there are not so many new songs, but we did add a lot of new ones. I hope everyone looks forward to them. PSB: What’s an example of a small detail in Shenmue III that you think will enhance players’ experience with the game? YS: I would ask everyone to take your time to play and not hurry through. When you come upon something you like, just stop and hang out for as long as you like, trying all things the game has to offer. For example, if you’re someone who doesn’t like gambling, try it in Shenmue and you may just have fun. View the full article

  22. Greetings, PlayStation Slayers! Today I’m here to tell you about our latest free seasonal content update for Dauntless, which goes live today on PS4. If you’ve taken a look around Ramsgate in the past week, you’ve likely noticed that the Dark Harvest has transformed the city into a shadow-laden bastion for the Unseen. This ominous cult tends to arrive at this time of year to spread their message to any Slayer keen enough to decipher their scrawls spread across Ramsgate and beyond. To combat the Unseen, today we’re launching the Haunted Shadows Hunt Pass, which welcomes a new faction: the Night Hunters. Haunted Shadows offers Slayers the ability to earn a full set of Night Hunter cosmetic armour on either the Basic or Elite track, plus a prestigious set of Ultra Armour at Elite Track Level 50. The Dauntless store is also filled to the brim with spooky seasonal cosmetics, emotes, and more, so be sure to take a look if you fancy yourself a bone xylophonist. As we outlined in the previous post, the new Bounty system rewards slayers with Hunt Pass experience, and today you’ll be able to draft a new slate of bounties to work your way to level 50. Whether or not you’ve been following our Unseen community ARG, today you can celebrate the event as we’re offering both the Unseen emote and laughing pumpkin flare for free until November 5. Grab ‘em while you can! We’re always listening closely to community feedback, and we’re happy to share that Haunted Shadows brings with it numerous performance and quality-of-life improvements. Starting today, we’re introducing an AFK timer to all hunts, so Slayers who go idle for more than three minutes will be automatically returned to Ramsgate. As always, Behemoth health and difficulty will automatically scale for the remaining party. We’ve also done a full design pass on our compass system, ensuring that Slayers can easily find their way around Ramsgate, identify quest prompts, and track flares while on a hunt. There are dozens more nuanced changes that arrive with Haunted Shadows, so if you’re interested in digging in, go check out our official community Reddit. Lastly, I want to remind all PlayStation Plus subscribers about our exclusive Royal Steel weapon skin set. You can grab it now at PlayStation Store and look especially regal as you slay. Have any feedback on Haunted Shadows, or Dauntless in general? Hit us up in the comments! View the full article
  23. Lithium: Inmate 39 Relapsed Edition launches next Tuesday, November 5, taking you back to the twisted mind of our favorite psychiatric patient. Get ready for new game mechanics, new bosses, new creatures, new music and a whole new terrifying atmosphere that will keep you up at night. This enhanced version gives players a better, darker look at its creepy creatures and adds new trophies and items. We’ve also added brand-new cutscenes created with the intent of immersing you in Lithium’s shadows, frightening you, then leaving you alone to walk the path on your own. Our team of artists and developers got behind the script and set out to tell the story of the Inmate 39 the way we originally intended. We paid close attention to details throughout the game to make sure everything feels even more disturbing this time. The aesthetics of the walls, floors, and terrains have been redesigned, with blood splashes, gore pieces, animation and violence better fitting the style of the game. The game’s bosses — other patients whose backgrounds you can learn via their medical records — have also been remodeled from scratch and their environments have been enriched with pieces of their past. Lithium: Inmate 39 Relapsed Edition Photo Gallery We truly are excited to bring this new version to you. We have given it our best effort to ensure this will be a gaming experience you’ll love. So, are you ready to relapse and get lost in a schizophrenic dream? View the full article
  24. Hello everyone I’m Fumihiko Yasuda, the producer for Nioh 2. I’d like to share some incredibly exciting news with you all! First and foremost, I’m happy to finally announce our launch date of March 13, 2020. I know many of you have been waiting and we thank you for your patience while we worked to set an official date. One of the primary reasons for not rushing to set a launch date was to ensure that we can achieve a “genuine evolution” from Nioh, which to us meant that we needed to bring in fresh new elements while retaining the things that we felt were right from the first game. Although there weren’t enough significant changes in the Alpha, we now feel that we have come much closer to reaching our goals. Open Beta Details With that being said, we would also like to give you guys a sneak peek at the game by releasing an open beta demo for you to try out. This open beta will be available from November 1-10 and is downloadable from PlayStation Store. All players will be able to experience new elements such as our extensive character customization feature, our newest weapon- the Switchglaive, and so much more. As you begin the beta, you will enter into a place called the Interim. Unlike the dojo tutorial from the previous game, the Interim is a safe zone where you will be able to choose your weapons, test out the basic moves and transition to a real stage when you are ready. This place was designed and based on the Tibetan Buddhist concept of intermediate, transitional state between life and death. I’m actually very fond of the environment we created which is modeled after the Sanzu river surrounded in tranquility (similar to the river Styx from Greek mythology). As you move on from the Interim, you will start your journey in a stage called Sunomata. This stage is based on the Sunomata castle which by some accounts was constructed in just one night by Hideyoshi. The experience will be an interpretation of historical actualities combined with a healthy injection of Yokai adventure! In addition, this new stage will treat you to an impressive environment covered in autumn maple leaves. In a similar fashion to the cherry blossoms stage (The Village of Cursed Blossoms), we had the great fortune of highlighting another stunning time of year within Japan’s four distinct seasons. I hope that you will enjoy this stage and the open beta in November. If you are skilled and fortunate enough to conquer the beta, you will earn The Mark of the Demon Slayer – a reward entitling you to unlock the Kamaitachi Helmet from the in-game Shrine to use in the full game when it arrives next year. Although the trial time is limited, we sincerely hope that you can play the beta and provide your invaluable feedback to us by responding to the survey. Pre-orders Start Today Also at this time you will be able to pre-order Nioh 2 from PlayStation Store, which will award you with valuable bonus items to use with the final game. For those of you who are new to Nioh, and want to discover the world around it, the original game will be available for free to PlayStation Plus members on November 5. As for the seasoned veterans, kindly guide the newcomers with your battle hardened skills. As the development enters into its final phase, we will be busy with debug, rebalance, debug, rebalance… All kidding aside, I’m anxious for you guys to play the Beta and we very much look forward to your feedback so that we can properly finalize Nioh 2. Thank you for your support! View the full article
  25. Prepare for the fight of your life next month as you lock swords with otherworldly evil in brutal action-RPG Nioh, and struggle for survival in tense psychological horror Outlast 2 – both joining the PS Plus monthly games lineup on November 5. Let’s take a closer look: Nioh Nioh is a visceral, action-driven adventure where you must hone your skills, upgrade your weapons and demonstrate perseverance and mastery in besting some of ancient Japan’s fiercest demons. Travel to the blood-soaked Sengoku period and take on the role of an embattled outsider as you fight to liberate a guardian spirit from the clutches of a power-hungry sorcerer. Wielding swords, spears, shuriken, bows, rifles, powerful elemental magic and more, shape yourself into an unstoppable samurai warrior. Develop new skills, find ever more powerful armor and perfect your playstyle as you explore overrun towns, brooding caves and abandoned harbors. Outlast 2 Immerse yourself in a desperate fight for survival in an isolated rural community as you attempt to rescue your kidnapped wife from the clutches of a deranged cult. Having narrowly escaped death in a helicopter crash, set out into the rundown village of Temple Gate and do your best to avoid its crazed inhabitants as you fight to locate your partner. Haunted by your troubled past, look for answers as you uncover the ever more disturbing secrets lurking beneath the town and the twisted ambitions of its charismatic leader. Both Nioh and Outlast 2 are available to download from PlayStation Store between November 5 and December 3. In the meantime, you still have a few days left to pick up October’s PlayStation Plus titles, which includes The Last of Us Remastered and MLB: The Show 19. Both games are available to download until November 4. For more information on PS Plus benefits, please visit our webpage. View the full article
