New on EU PlayStation Store: The Order 1886, QBert and Hand of Fate

New on EU PlayStation Store: The Order 1886, QBert and Hand of Fate 400°
2w ago - Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PS Store Team is here with this weeks new content on the EU PlayStation Store including The Order 1886, QBert and Hand of Fate.

To quote: First up, The Order 1886 arrives this week. Galahad and his team of royal knights trek the streets of rainy London in search of inhuman nasties. Equip yourself with outlandish weaponry and tech in order to triumph in the war that has spanned centuries.

Making a comeback is Q*Bert. Some of you may be too young to have played the original (even I am, believe me), but Q*Bert Rebooted brings back pixel-perfect old-school Q*Bert in 2D, along with a re-imagined 3D version.

Both require quick thinking to conquer so be glad you aren't paying per credit like in the old days.




We've also got a storm of discounts on PS Store, from amazing PS Vita titles to PS4 blockbusters such as Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.

As we're celebrating PS Vita's birthday, we're delighted to give fans access to two themes to spice things up. There's a montage of characters featured on one theme, available for free, and there's also a special Toro and Friends theme featuring everyone's loveable cat, available for free for one week.

Video: Hand of Fate PS4 Out Today on PlayStation 4, What to Expect

Video: Hand of Fate PS4 Out Today on PlayStation 4, What to Expect 250°
2w ago - Defiant Development Associate Producer Kim Allom shared a PS4 video today announcing that Hand of Fate arrives today on PlayStation 4 with details below of what to expect!

To quote: Hi guys! Kim from Defiant Development, here. Today marks the launch of Hand of Fate on PS4, and I wanted to give ya'll insight into what you should expect while you play this roguelike deckbuilder we hold dear to our hearts.

Before I get to the juicy stuff, allow me to talk a bit about Defiant and how Hand of Fate came to fruition.

So we're an indie studio based in Brisbane, Australia (more commonly known as 'Straya) - home to bird-eating spiders and dingoes that eat babies. At least the beaches and forests are nice.

I digress! Over the last four years we've built a team of local veterans of the console industry (Pandemic, THQ, SEGA, and Krome), and fresh new talent.

A couple of successful mobile games later, we found ourselves in a strong position where the team can bring indie to console, thus the conception of Hand of Fate.

In fact, we'll be the first Australian studio to both self-publish and develop a title for PS4. This is a massive achievement for us, and 'Straya as a whole!



 

Sony Goes Hands on with Dark Souls II for PS4 on PlayStation 4

Sony Goes Hands on with Dark Souls II for PS4 on PlayStation 4 1100°
4w ago - Sony Social Media Senior Manager Sid Shuman went hands on with Dark Souls II for PS4 today on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin on PS4 adds the expected technical improvements, but also remixes core gameplay elements to give veterans a reason to dive back in.

The jump to PS4 has given developer FromSoftware an opportunity to paint a more pleasing picture. The native 1080p resolution, upgraded lighting effects, and cinematic filters give the game a richer, cleaner look compared to the PS3 version.

But the biggest improvement comes from the improved frame rate - 60 frames per second according to Bandai Namco representatives. The increased fluidity translates into more responsive movement and combat, a major advantage considering the game's famously unforgiving difficulty.

Then there are the gameplay adjustments. You won't be able to rely on your memory to cakewalk the PS4 game because some enemies and item locations have been changed. Enemies will follow you more tenaciously, even through fog gates - a terrifying, potentially ruinous side effect of PS4's expanded RAM pool.

Some weapons are also being tweaked. I noticed that the Fire Long Sword, a powerful early-game weapon that saved my butt countless times on...
 

Sony Goes Hands-on with DmC: Definitive Edition on PlayStation 4

Sony Goes Hands-on with DmC: Definitive Edition on PlayStation 4 1150°
5w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with DmC: Definitive Edition on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: When DmC: Devil May Cry launched in January of 2013, Ninja Theory introduced the world to a fresh interpretation of an iconic video game (anti)hero.

Half angel, half demon, the Dante of DmC not only fought legions of demon spawn, but the misinformation of an evil corporation. The demon king Mundus took a CEO's office, not a dark throne. It was a new game world, and Dante kicked its ass.

Now the smart-talking Dante fights on in DmC: Definitive Edition, launching March 10th on PS4. It's an enhanced version of the original PS3 game with a slew of new features and a layer of polish that makes Dante's demon-killing exploits and confident gunplay even more satisfying.

I had a chance to put the Definitive Edition through its paces, and managed to avoid embarrassing myself in the Bloody Palace along the way.

Starting with the basics: the Definitive Edition runs at 60 frames per second in crisp 1080p. This propels the fast-paced combat and kinetic environments to new heights, enhancing Dante's deft swordwork and the ever-shifting realm of Limbo.

To fully wring every advantage out of these new performance upgrades, the...
 

Sony Goes Hands-on with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PS4

Sony Goes Hands-on with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PS4 850°
5w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PS4 with details below.

To quote: The developers of the open-ended RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt describe their bold creation as a "morally indifferent" fantasy world, but it's difficult to illustrate the true breadth of that claim.

The world of The Witcher 3 is violent, desperate, dark, beautiful, and palpably old. It teems with quests and hidden dangers, alongside gritty heroes and the wrongdoers to match them.

Playing Wild Hunt on PS4 for the first time, its world came to life in unexpected ways, but delivered a consistently rewarding introduction to a rich tale.

Those new to the Witcher series need not slink away, overwhelmed - The Witcher 3 is designed with you in mind. It begins with a prologue that deftly establishes the important characters and the stakes of the conflict around them.

You play as a slayer of monsters - a Witcher - one in a long line of highly-trained, mutated beings that seek out and destroy threats against humanity. This background has gifted (or cursed) hero Geralt of Rivia with an unnaturally long life, and a set of skills suitable for his profession.

At the onset of The Witcher 3's story, Geralt and his old master Vesemir...
