Believe it or not, this title is free to play, at least when you still have enough “Attack Energy”. What happens when the Attack Energy is used up? Wait till it’s refilled automatically after a certain period of time or let money do the work- purchase some to continue playing right away. 

 

Take to the battlefield in a variety of game modes including Basic, Siege, Combat Training Exercise etc. Defeat opposing Mobile Suites as you capture outposts scattered around the map area or send the pilot onto the field strategically to repair your mobile suits. Go online and form two teams of 6 – Federation or Zeon forces- with other players. Aim for higher scores than the opposing team within the time limit in this fast-paced game!

 

Check out the excitement yourself in this trailer!

 

 

 

 

Nothing But Dangerous “Army of TWO™ The Devil’s Cartel”

 

Two weeks ago we have written about the demo version of “Army of TWO™ The Devil’s Cartel” and now we can’t be happier to announce that the full game version (IDR 602000@ PS Store) is hitting the stores TODAY!

 

 

 

 

As the third title to the series, this is the first game to run on the Frostbite 2 game engine. Different from the previous two titles, this time the game will focus around two new T.W. O (Tactical Worldwide Operations) operatives named Alpha and Bravo. The streets of Mexico that you are going to venture may be extremely deadly, but at least, you’ve got a partner.  Take on dangerous missions and fight the drug war!

BEYOND: Official Selection by Tribeca Film Festival

Posted by: Derek Osgood // Associate Product Marketing Manager, Sony Computer Entertainment America
Category: Games > PS3

Region: HK , SG , MY , TH , VN , PH

Two weeks ago, Oscar-nominee Willem Dafoe was added to the cast ofBEYOND: Two Souls, and we announced pre-order bonuses for North America. Today, we’re talking about howBEYOND is blurring the lines between film and gaming – “BEYOND” has been chosen as an Official Selection by Tribeca Film Festival, the first such selection of this kind for a video game.

 

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8243/8577237881_b086056c15_m.jpg http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8240/8577238027_b169955a72_m.jpg

 

On April 27th, we will be hosting a screening at the festival where we’ll show a new one-hour scene from the game, debuting a major trailer and a new behind-the-scenes look, alongside a Q&A panel with Ellen Page and director David Cage discussing the way “BEYOND” is pushing the boundaries of storytelling. The entire team here is hugely excited that Tribeca is recognizing the powerful story of “BEYOND”, its star-studded cast, and the stunning visual technology that have contributed to the game’s uniquely cinematic experience. We’ll also be live-streaming the event right here on PlayStation.Blog (US PS Blog).

Earlier this week, 100 journalists from around the world visited Quantic Dream’s studio in Paris for an exclusive “BEYOND” event. In the surrounds of the very motion capture room where Ellen’s and Willem’s performances were recorded, writer and director David Cage showcased several new scenes from the game, featuring both the Jodie and entity gameplay.

 

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8513/8578341244_d09c3f19c4_m.jpg http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8370/8577237903_f1f29d0f69_m.jpg

 

Press were shown the Aiden entity gameplay in a scene featuring a young Jodie taking part in a scientific experiment under the watchful eye of her mentor Nathan Dawkins (Willem Dafoe). And then they were treated to a full playthrough of what promises to be one of the most powerful scenes in gaming, which sees Jodie living on the streets, fighting for her life and those of the homeless people around her. David Cage also unveiled the brand new in-game user interface, which provides an even more immersive and seamless experience than the game’s predecessor “Heavy Rain”.


The new user interface allows for promptless contextual control in both general navigation and action sequence controls, while increasing the level of direct control the user has and opening the door for far more exploration than players experienced in “Heavy Rain”. To end the day, press were invited to be the first to play the game, and try out the new UI and gameplay for themselves.

All of the press write-ups should be going live, so keep an eye on the web for their reactions to “Beyond”’s new gameplay from this event.

Direct from Paris! Be Impressed of Hollywood Blockbuster Style “BEYOND: Two Souls”

PS3™ exclusive title “BEYOND: Two Souls” by Quantic Dreams has made a pioneering decision in the gaming industry by casting Ellen Page (one of my favorite actresses who has starred in “Juno” and “Inception”) as the heroine as well as the Green Goblin actor from “Spiderman” to play the scientist. Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong Limited was invited to visit Quantic Dreams headquarter in Paris on 19th March and had a tour of the huge shooting studio for Motion Capture, sneak peek of freshly released gameplay and interviews with producers David Cage and Guillaume de Fondaumière to unveil the mysteries of this Hollywood-style game.

Press from all over the world visited the Quantic Dream headquarter for a trial session of the anticipated new title “BEYOND: Two Souls”.

Quantic Dream boosts more than 200 employees. David Cage showed the press around the office area with a huge fullview glass window. Game production does not mean working around the clock without seeing daylight.

 

 


In Search of Two Souls: Jodie & Aiden

“BEYOND: Two Souls” is due to be released in October this year. Those who have played “Heavy Rain”, a title also produced by Quantic Dreams, should have found its impressive cinematic storyline charming. This cinematic title has always been my favorite game. However, this time around Quantic Dreams has chosen not to produce a sequel to “Heavy Rain”, instead, they started this brand new title “BEYOND: Two Souls”, which does not tell of a murder like “Heavy Rain”. “BEYOND: Two Souls” takes players through the story of heroine Jodie Holmes (Ellen Page) from the age of eight to twenty-three. Since she was born, Jodie has been connected with Aiden, an invisible entity. She is gifted with supernatural powers but plagued with pain known to nobody. According to the producers, the game proceeds with flashbacks taking players to revisit Jodie at different ages including her childhood, adolescence and adulthood so they could identify the reason and result of each incident through rearranging the pieces.

Consequences from Small Decisions

During the hands-on session, players could freely control Jodie or Aiden, facing challenges along the way to continue the story. For example, there is a scene of Jodie being inside a fire scene when the elevator fails to work. Players can play as Aiden to leave the elevator, pushing away luggage stuck at the door of another floor so that the elevator can function again. The entity Aiden is invisible, flies and can pass through any object. Aiden can also move objects and even possess people. It’s up to players to consider how to make use of Aiden’s abilities depending on the situation to overcome challenges and continue through Jodie’s life.  Retaining “Heavy Rain”’s choice-centered gameplay, players will be constantly making decisions, and each small decision can lead to a different ending - just like in real life. Once a decision is made, there’s no way back.

PS3™ consoles were placed in the venue for the press to try playing a part of “BEYOND: Two Souls”.

Jodie Learns Fighting But Not QTE Controls

Different from “Heavy Rain”, “BEYOND: Two Souls” does not use QTE controls. Those who have played “Heavy Rain” before should remember that when close battle takes place they have to press buttons according to the directions displayed on-screen to unleash attacks. The same QTE controls is not used in “BEYOND: Two Souls”, instead, during the hands-on session we saw Jodie receiving close combat training. Players can make use of the analog sticks to unleash attacks of different levels, such as kicks or uppercuts. Actions also slow down during battles to facilitate easier controls. By not retaining QTE controls,  “BEYOND: Two Souls” lets players be more immersed in the gameplay and to experience together with Jodie a grappling and thrilling life journey spanning 15 years.

Hollywood Stars and Their Eyes Took Part in the Acting

Lastly, what must be mentioned about this title is that Hollywood stars Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe have taken part in the development of this title by actually “acting out” the game characters. Most scenes of the title were produced by Motion Capture- sensors placed onto the actors’ faces and bodies, to detect each action and expression for further production. More than 90 sensors were placed on each actor’s face, no wonder producers claim that even the actors’ eyes have taken part in “acting”. More than 12 months were spent filming for the game, involving more than 300 characters, which is something that makes this title a much anticipated one, not to mention the brand-new game engine!

 

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8529/8593311791_5b24d2ae42_z.jpg

David Cage, Creative Director of “BEYOND: Two Souls” presented the title to the press inside the Motion Capture studio. Sixty five cameras were placed inside the studio, where Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe acted out every scene of the game.

 

 

Coming Soon:

We will have interviews coming up of David Cage and Guillaume de Fondaumière, the title and studio directors! Stay tuned!

The entity Aiden is constantly protecting Jodie; but on the dark side, it also has a jealous and violent character.

Urban Trial Freestyle Amps Up PS3 and PS Vita

Posted by: Wojtek Bilinski // GM, Tate Interactive
Category: News > Product

Region: HK , SG , MY , TH

 

 

We are getting closer to releasingUrban Trial Freestyle – and since we’ve focused on the PS3 version, we thought it was time to shed more light on the PS Vita version.


Both versions of “Urban Trial Freestyle” feature the same proprietary physics engine (called Elephant Engine), so in terms of being a trial biking experience, PS Vita and PS3 are quite similar. Both platforms also feature the same game modes, outfits and motorbike customization. PS Vita is a really powerful machine — as a development team, we were able to include all the same features as those on the PS3™ version.


Still, there are some differences between the two versions, including events and background action, billboards and challenges.


  PS Vita has a smaller screen, and we decided that trying to match the big platform level of detail would be too much on a handheld platform. When you play “Urban Trial Freestyle” on your PS3™, its likely you’ll have a much bigger screen, chilling in a comfortable position in front of the TV, so you can really absorb more elements and events that are taking place in the background. With PS Vita, it’s all about short, portable sessions of play. Thinking from this perspective, we want you to be able to focus on what is happening in the foreground. Of course, both versions have a ton of crazy, intense action happening.

 

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8073/8388509038_2be0531cfe_c.jpg

 

The PS Vita version takes advantage of the platform’s features, like the built-in camera. For instance, gamers can take photos of themselves for their profile. When the top player’s profile is displayed on Billboards placed on tracks next to each of the Stunts (and also on a summary screen at the end of each track both in Stunt Mode and Time Attack), they can actually see their photo on these Billboards. That’s quite cool – imagine that thousands of your fellow players see your photograph on these Billboards! Seeing who is the best for each stunt fosters a more personal, perceptible sense of competition. I remember we had some great moments with this feature at our studio. When you see someone’s happy face on one of these Billboards, then you manage to beat their score and replace their photo with your own grinning mug, it just feels great. Another exciting feature here is that you can narrow the competition only to your friends list, so it can get fiercer and more competitive.


There are also some differences between the two platforms in Challenges mode. For example, in the “Defying Gravity” challenge on PS Vita, a player shifts the whole game system to shift the gravity, whereas on PS3™, it’s only the controller that you need to shift — the screen shifts accordingly on TV, so the feeling is a bit different.


  Both versions are awesome – we love playing “Urban Trial Freestyle” on PS3™ in the comfort of our homes, and also taking it wherever we go on PS Vita. Both feature addictive, fast paced gameplay action that we think you will love too!

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8108/8556045661_99e64c630b_z.jpg

Perfectly sized to fit a record, the trusty milkcrate has been holding music collections for a long time and with the Community Milkcrate we’re continuing that tradition. We've hand-picked eclectic and creative levels from the Community and arranged them into themed albums. Each is presented in a brand new interface and comes complete with liner notes with insights and interesting things to check out while playing them, kinda like a director's commentary for levels. We're so blown away by what you guys are making that we wanted a way to properly showcase it. Oh… and the Milkcrate albums become part of the game so any levels selected are baked right into “Sound Shapes” forever.

 

The Milkcrate launches with 6 albums and 35 total levels and is included free in today’s patch update.

 

Offline Play (free update)


You’ve been asking for it and it’s finally here. “Sounds Shapes” now has Offline Play. While connected to the “Sound Shapes” servers, select any community level, tap a button, and sync it. Now you can play your favorite levels whenever you want! (Offline Play is included free in today’s patch update as well).

Visual Effects Design in DUST 514

Posted by: CCP CmdrWang // DUST 514 Community Manager, CCP
Category: PlayStation Network > PlayStation Store

Region: HK , SG , MY , TH

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8231/8553312055_bfc3f5ff59_z.jpg

 

Hi, I’m Luo Bin, team leader of the visual effects (VFX) team for DUST 514®, and I would like to share our experiences in making VFX for this revolutionary shooter. Visual effects are an important part of CG imaging during post-production, and when properly implemented, can really bring a game to life.

 

However, VFX design and production differs from character or backdrop creation, because visual effects are more abstract. In most cases, VFX are not fixed forms and require multiple design iterations, and of course, DUST 514 and EVE Online® are closely linked which means that they share similar styles and design. Still, this doesn't mean the VFX in DUST 514 are the same as in EVE Online, because that would be boring.

 

In DUST 514, VFX styles are determined by factional or racial differences. Each of the four major factions in New Eden uses different technologies to create weapons, and that is reflected in their visual effects. From laser beams to lightning arcs and plasma weapons, each branch of arms technology requires a unique VFX design.

 

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8384/8553312243_d8169d645e_z.jpg

 

Gallente Light Assault rifle

 

As an example, let’s take the Gallente Light Assault rifle which is very popular with players. From the design side, the ammunition type it uses is a high energy plasma round. To show this in-game, we’ve taken images of magnetic storms from the Sun as a reference and expressed its innately superheated and unstable state in the muzzle flash of the weapon. The effect of this ammunition upon impact should reflect its high energy potential and cause instantaneous conflagrations. This weapon also has a high rate of fire and to express this in its tracer effects, we wanted to retain its high energy/plasma aspects and combine it with a high emission rate to resemble flames.

 

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8086/8553312545_df61abe6e9_z.jpg

 

Caldari Forge Gun

 

Now, let’s look at the Caldari Forge Gun. It is also a high energy weapon but it differs from the Gallente Light Assault rifle in that instead of using plasma, it utilizes a high-voltage magnetic propulsion system to deliver its munitions. Because of this design, the entire operation of this weapon system is more complicated, since it requires a charge phase, launch stage, cool down time and finally, a recharge period. Along each of these steps a visual effect is required for the weapon. During the charge phase you will see powerful currents course through the weapon’s chamber and bore. As the munitions exit the barrel they emit a dazzling halo followed by residual high voltage arcs from the projectiles. As the barrel cools the lingering heat from the launch is then pooled and ejected as steam.

 

Yet, this lengthy process takes place every few seconds. To express this visually, we focused on the electrical arcs that occur when the weapon is fired and designed various types of arcs that can be seen during each stage of the firing. During the initial charge phase the arcs are seen coiled around the barrel of the gun and they appear more warped, and when the round impacts the arcs become more emissive giving it an explosive feel. This is a common theme amongst many Caldari weapons.  

 

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8247/8553312367_7f05cb22b0_z.jpg

 

Minmatar HMG

 

Minmatar weapons resemble modern weapons more closely and are of the gun powder projectile variety. However, this does not mean that they lack the punch of other weapon classes. These weapons have the highest rate of fire and are designed to deliver a hailstorm of bullets to the enemy. The Minmatar Heavy Machine Gun is a veritable hand held Gatling gun and to stress this aspect we’ve amplified its muzzle flash in size and added a shimmering blaze. The end result is that when fired, players will see writhing tracers bolting toward their targets belching smoke trails in their wake.  

 

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8527/8553311811_fb285149e7_z.jpg

 

Amarr Laser Rifle

 

When it comes to the Amarr racial weapons things take on a more grandiose tone and this is also reflected in the design of their weapons. From the etched heraldry to the shape of their guns, Amarr weaponry combines religious symbolism with deadly purpose. We took that in to account when designing the visual effects for Amarr weapons with the goal of ensuring that players get a sense of splendor unique to the Amarr.

 

A good example of this is the Laser Rifle. The weapon itself looks like a sophisticated instrument, precise and measured. When activated, it operates in a similar manner, with very little recoil and a high level of accuracy. Since the weapon deals damage with focused light, we’ve made its muzzle flash in the form of light particles that fan out. Its tracer effects take the form of a continuous light beam accentuated with flickering gleam to emphasize its power.       

 

To make things even more interesting, a lot of these weapon technologies are fictional and have no real-world references for artists, so we have to rely on our personal creativity to come up with cool concepts of what they should look like. This has been a challenging and enjoyable experience for us.

 

On the art side, we spent a good deal of time to ensuring DUST 514 maintains a polished look while delivering a smooth user experience. To accomplish this, we spend a lot of time communicating and coordinating with engineers, game designers, and artists to determine the most efficient means of achieving this goal. 

 

I have used many development tools and in comparison, Unreal is an outstanding software. This is in part due to a fully featured material editor that lets us easily create a multitude of assets. Simply change a few value settings and you can get a vastly different visual effect. This key feature and allows our VFX team to vigorously explore new ideas with a short turnaround time. We've spent a lot of effort in pursuing that perfect balance of beauty and efficiency with DUST 514 visual effects, and we hope you will enjoy seeing them as much as we've enjoyed in creating them.

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge coming soon to PlayStation 3

Posted by: Chin Soon Sun // Community Manager, Tecmo Koei Europe

Region: HK , SG , MY , TH

Today, we are happy to announce that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, the latest chapter in the famous action series, is coming to PlayStation®3, packed with new features, brutally tough challenges, additional playable characters and bonus content!

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge features additional playable characters, a new gameplay mode, a redesigned battle system with enhanced enemy AI, a robust Ninja Skills upgrade system, expanded online features including bonus content, and a host of other features.


 

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8333/8449559983_72aee9b2bf_z.jpg

 

 

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge was designed from the ground up to satisfy core action fans with a redesigned battle system, improved enemy AI, the removal of interactive QTE scenes, and the return of dismemberment. Even with severed arms or legs, enemies will fight on and players will find they have to change attacks on the fly to win brutally tough battles - the challenge level leaves little room for error.

The Ninja Skills systems lets players use Karma earned in combat to freely purchase weapon and Ninpo upgrades, feats, and costumes. Adding to the variety of gameplay, Kasumi, Ayane, and Momiji all join Hayabusa as playable characters. Ayane will get her own story mode while all three female characters can be played in the new Chapter Challenge mode and Ninja Trials co-op play with multiple costume options.

 

 

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8324/8449559901_7508cf815c_z.jpg

 

 

Chapter Challenge mode is available with 10 new chapters including all-new Ayane stages. In this mode, players will compete for the highest score possible in each chapter of the story. Six brutal weapons are available throughout the game, including the new Jinran-Maru & Blade of the Archfiend dual swords, Lunar Staff, and Kusari-gama. Additionally, Inferno, Wind Blades, and Piercing Void have been added as deadly new Ninpo.

In the new Tests of Valor challenge, players who find Crystal Skulls hidden in each level will be transported to face off in skill-testing battles with familiar bosses from the NINJA GAIDEN series.

 

 

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8050/8449559855_126c9fd8a7_z.jpg

 

 

The online features in Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge have been greatly expanded, with all the previously paid DLC from Ninja Gaiden 3 available as a bonus. The Ninja Skills upgrade system works online to let players use Karma to purchase 64 customizable features for the Unknown Ninja used in multiplayer Clan Battles.

Supporting up to eight players, five brand new Clan Battle stages have been added. Players can use all of Hayabusa’s weapons and Ninpo in Clan Battles, giving them access to their favorite methods of attack. The number of missions in Ninja Trials has been tripled to a total of 100, and all four playable characters - Hayabusa, Ayane, Momiji, and Kasumi - can be used in this co-op mode.

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge is scheduled to launch at retail on 2nd April 2013. Stay tuned as we have more information coming soon!

God of War: Ascension: Trial of the Gods Revealed

Posted by: Andrew Chrysafidis // Level Designer, Sony Santa Monica
Category: Games > PS3

Region: HK , SG , MY , TH , VN , PH

With less than a week to go until God of War: Ascension launches, it’s time to drop the curtain on our fourth Multiplayer mode, Trial of the Gods, and our next God allegiance reveal -- the Lord of the Sea, Poseidon.

 

 

 

 

In Trial of the Gods, the first two-player God of War co-op time trial mode, you and a friend will tag-team with your Champions to face five increasingly hard waves of mythological beasts, whilst surviving against the hourglass of Olympus.

Over 15 types of enemies await you, including Satyrs, Cerberuses, Cyclopes, Gorgons, Juggernauts, and more deadly creatures. You will start with a set amount of time on the clock, and win time back with every beast you slay. Decimate a wave and you will be granted a Bonus Time Tiered Award (gold, silver, or bronze) based on how fast you cleared the wave. If you die or run out of time, you'll have to start over again. If you reach the end of the fifth round, an epic boss awaits.

At launch, Trial of the Gods will be available in the following maps: Desert of Lost Souls, Forum of Hercules, and Rotunda of Olympus, with more arenas planned for later!

With Trial of the Gods, we wanted to help bridge the single player and multiplayer experience, giving players a chance to work on their skill-set and gain valuable experience points with a friend, before jumping into the competitive arena. Playing Trial of the Gods is also a great way to grind some extra experience between competitive games, test newly acquired weapons and abilities, or even try a new allegiance. Any experience gained in Trial of the Gods will go towards upgrading your Champions across the entire multiplayer experience.

What happens if you don’t have a friend to play co-op with, or you don’t want to team up with a stranger? No worries -- you can play Trial of the Gods solo too!

 

 

 

 

 

 

God of the Sea and brother to Zeus, Poseidon’s realm is almost as great as the sky itself, and his power is second only to Zeus because of it. Poseidon grants his loyal sentinels unique support capabilities: a large pool of health, the ability to fortify allies, and command over water and ice.  Unleash freezing attacks to obliterate an enemy’s defense and agility or boost your own team’s elemental defense and health.  The wise warrior knows how to control a large area of space and can keep multiple enemies at a distance. For more on aligning with Lord Poseidon, check out his strategic profile in our God section at GodofWar.com.

Isaac Clarke and Zeus Join the Battle Royale

Posted by: Seth Killian // Lead Game Designer, Sony Santa Monica Studio
Category: PlayStation Network > PlayStation Store

Region: HK , SG , MY , TH

Happy to be back to tell you about some new surprises from PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. More costumes? More minions? Well, okay, yes. But also more new characters!   

Our newest challengers are Isaac Clarke from Electronic Arts
Dead Space, and Zeus from... well, from some of the foundational myths of Western society, but also from a little PlayStation game you might know called God of War by SCEA Santa Monica Studio.

 

 

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8387/8513458335_14ffa41d08_n.jpg http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8515/8513458211_39a79336c7_n.jpg

 

How did these two emerge as All-Stars from the vast PlayStation multiverse? Synchronicity. We were talking with some friends over at EA who were hard at work on Dead Space 3, and with a lot of Dead Space fans on our team and all the cool tools at Isaac's disposal, some quick concepts emerged and we knew he'd be a great addition. We've also wanted to add another "heavy," hard-hitting character into All-Stars (Big Daddy was getting lonely), and with all the work on God of War: Ascension around Sony Santa Monica, Zeus emerged as a perfect fit. 

As you might remember, Zeus is kind of an arrogant jerk, but one thing you can say for him is that he does not mess around. As King of the Gods, he's a big guy, used to getting his way, and he hits HARD. Of course he's got some cool combos, but his primary offense is centered around fewer, but more powerful strikes that generate a ton of AP and send enemies flying. He can power up virtually all of his attacks into a "charged" version with all kinds of new effects, giving him one of the biggest move lists in the game. Super-armored rushing punches, a clone move, teleports, and lightning bolts--lots and lots of lightning bolts. Your best bet against Zeus is to stay on his good side (aka behind him), or far away.  

His level 1 is a giant Lightning Clap that lacks range but has a great area of effect. Level 2 lets Zeus take to the skies and fly anywhere before exploding in a deadly lightning storm. His level 3 "Wrath of Zeus" takes you to Olympus to fight a godlike 100-foot tall Zeus, and in true boss-fight form, he can wipe out half the screen with a single strike.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Through a combination of playtesting and staying true to his original series, Isaac emerged over the course of development as a strong mid-range fighter using the unique weapons and Kinesis/Stasis abilities you'll recognize from the Dead Space series (think somewhere between Drake and Jak, with a lot of twists). He has some very interesting long-range options (the Bouncing Bola acts like sniper rifle that bounces off of walls, getting more powerful with each bounce) and he's got some great moves up close, but just as in Dead Space, he's at his best keeping foes safely out of his face. He can advance or retreat while firing his trusty Plasma Cutter, toss proximity mines, use Stasis attacks to freeze opponents, or spin slowly moving Ripper blades at enemies with a blast of Kinesis torque. 

His level 1 super fires a supercharged stasis burst and then overloads his Plasma Cutter, which can be aimed anywhere, even at very long range. His level 2 super overloads his Kinesis module creating a bubble that launches nearby enemies away at "terminal" velocity, and Isaac's level 3 takes you into space where he blows the airlock, sucking everyone into space for a quick game of something like "Asteroids" where Isaac flies around blasting opponents and space debris into dust.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, what better to welcome new characters than with a new stage? The new "Graveyard" level mashes up MediEvil's Graveyard opening with... The Unfinished Swan. While we start in recognizable MediEvil territory (complete with pop-up zombies and a wisecracking gargoyle), the "Swan" elements are shown off with a mid-match whiteout and ink splatters that slowly reveal the emerging structures. There are lots of little Swan touches throughout the stage, from the hidden labyrinth, to a balloon, the King, and of course the Unfinished Swan itself makes a cameo.

So how do All-Stars fans get their hands on the new stuff? The new DLC pack hits the PlayStation®Store on March 21th. As before with the recently released "Fearless" stage, the new "Graveyard" stage will be free in online ranked matches. As for Zeus and Isaac, I'm very happy to announce they will come to North America FREE as a redeemable downloadable voucher code packed in with the new God of War: Ascension, which launches on March 12th. You can use your code to redeem them any time after they are live. For anybody who doesn't pick up God of War: Ascension (but of course that's only crazy people--it's got what I think is the most epic final battle in the series’ history), the characters will also be for sale in the PS Store.

I'll have some more details coming on the new challengers in the coming weeks -- until then, see you online!

Play No Man’s Land Starting Today on PlayStation Home

 

No Man’s Land is a new free-to-play PlayStation®Home game that transports you to a post-apocalyptic America that has known only war for decades. Through this devastated wasteland, you must scavenge to survive while confronting tribes of heavily armed enemies focused on their own survival. Employing a cutting-edge cover point system and immersive gameplay, No Man’s Land is a first-of-its-kind on a console: a free-to-play multiplayer shooter.

 

We are proud to bring you this breakthrough Home experience. Comprised of industry veterans who have worked across a wide range of platforms and genres, VEEMEE saw a unique opportunity with PlayStation®Home to evolve gaming by blending the immersive gameplay endemic to AAA games with the social and “freemium” aspects of casual games. This is something that is only possible on PlayStation, with its free online network and vibrant community. No Man’s Land is a game that brings something new – and a bit different – to the Home platform.

No Man’s Land is a multiplayer third-person tactical shooter, featuring a cover-based movement system and 4v4 team battles. Following the completion of a tutorial session, the player is given an introductory loadout that allows access to the Drydock and the game. Armor and weapon upgrades can be purchased from the Commerce Points in a variety of combinations, which we plan to evolve in time.

Willem Dafoe to star alongside Ellen Page in BEYOND: Two Souls

Last year at E3 we announced the much anticipated title from Quantic Dream, the makers of Heavy Rain. BEYOND: Two Souls is a psychological action thriller starring Oscar nominee Ellen Page (Inception, Juno) in the lead role of Jodie Holmes.


BEYOND tells the story of Jodie, a young woman who’s known since birth that she is different from everyone else. She possesses supernatural powers through her psychic link to an invisible entity she calls Aiden, and this gift has changed her life forever. In ”BEYOND you’ll play through 15 years of Jodie’s story, experiencing the most striking moments of her life, in what promises to be one of the most thrilling and emotional journeys on PlayStation®3.

Today we’re very pleased to announce that Ellen will be joined by another Oscar nominee in Willem Dafoe (Platoon, Spider-Man) who will star as Nathan Dawkins, a government scientist who works with Jodie to analyse her powers.

 

 

 

 

At a later stage we’ll have lots more to reveal on the interplay between Nathan and Jodie in the game (no spoilers today!), but suffice to say they form a compelling bond and together deliver some of the most unique and powerful scenes yet seen in gaming.

We’ve got a gameplay trailer for you today showcasing an early scene from the game in which Nathan first meets a young Jodie (played by a child actress, not Ellen), and including some sneak peeks at other scenes from the game:

And we’ve got an interview with Willem talking about his role in the game:

 

 


Willem’s exciting inclusion in the cast is just the tip of the iceberg for our announcements today though, as we are also pleased to announce that BEYOND will be coming to PS3™ October 2013. So we’ll have plenty of news and videos to share with you in the coming weeks and months.

Vengeance is born in the fires of betrayal in this prequel to the best-selling “God of War” franchise. Six months have passed since Kratos stood over the bodies of his wife and child, his hands stained with their blood - tricked by Ares into murdering the only people he ever loved. Swearing to avenge them, Kratos broke the blood oath that bound him to Ares, but oaths to Olympus are not so easily broken…

 

Sentenced to an eternity chained within a prison for the living damned, Kratos battles insanity at the hands of the Furies. He will be tested as he seeks freedom, redemption for his sins, and the clarity to avenge his family.

 

One of the key game features is to support “Multiplayer” for the first time. Take the epic “God of War” combat online with 8-player objective-based combat.

PS4 Recap: PlayStation’s Top Game Creators Speak

One week ago, PlayStation 4 was announced in New York City in a presentation watched by more than 15 million people. We met the new DualShock 4 controller, soaked up some impressive hardware specs and services, and saw a barrage of upcoming PS4 games — from inFAMOUS: Second Son to Bungie’s new title Destiny.

 

During the presentation, Lead System Architect Mark Cerny remarked that PS4 was made “by game creators, for game creators.” To test that theory, we met with two of PlayStation’s top game creators, SCE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida and SCE Worldwide Studios Senior Vice President Scott Rohde, to see which of PS4’s new features has them most inspired.
