Video: Bloodborne: Story Trailer Hints at Dark Secrets on PlayStation 4 850°
2w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Producer Masaaki Yamagiwa at Japan Studio shared a Bloodborne PS4 story trailer video today which hints at some of the game's dark secrets on PlayStation 4.

To quote: Today as part of IGN First we revealed our brand new story trailer for Bloodborne, the PS4-exclusive Action RPG from developers FromSoftware and SCE Japan Studio.

This trailer introduces some of the characters you'll meet along the way as you venture into the depths of the cursed city of Yharnam, and hints at some of the dark secrets waiting to be uncovered by brave hunters.




When we revealed the first 18 minutes of the game a few weeks ago, I introduced how the game starts with the player arriving in Yharnam and receiving a blood transfusion from a strange doctor, which ends up clouding his memory.

Is this all a dream? A nightmare? Where did all of the beasts come from? And what secrets does this Yharnam blood hold? Check out the trailer for just a small taste of the mysteries and horrors waiting for you in Bloodborne.

I'm extremely excited that Bloodborne is just about complete,...
 

Axiom Verge: The Secrets of Speedrun Mode on PS4 and PS Vita

Axiom Verge: The Secrets of Speedrun Mode on PS4 and PS Vita 700°
5w ago - Thomas Happ Games LLC Programmer / Artist / Designer / Composer Tom Happ shared the secrets of Speedrun Mode today in Axiom Verge on PS4 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: Hey everyone - this is Tom Happ, the sole developer of Axiom Verge. I did all of the art, music, design, animation, and programming as a labor of love.

After 5 years of working on Axiom Verge in isolation, I'm finally getting close to launch. I can't wait for everyone to get their hands on it. I'm pretty proud of what I've been able to make as a team of 1, but the ultimate judges will be you, the players.

One of the newest features I added was a Speedrun Mode. For years I've loved watching ridiculously skilled players 100%-ing great games like Super Metroid, Shovel Knight, Guacamelee, and more. The recent AGDQ festival also made me think deeply about creating features specifically for the speedrunning community.

To understand how Speedrun Mode works, it's important to understand a little about Axiom Verge. In Axiom Verge, you play as Trace, a scientist who wakes up after a lab accident in a strange, alien world. Similar to classic games like Super Metroid, Master Blaster, Bionic Commando, and Contra, the game involves a mix of exploration, new weapons and powerups, new enemies to battle and epic boss fights....
 

Rain Games: Teslagrad on PS3 & PS Vita: The Secrets of Magnetism

Rain Games: Teslagrad on PS3 & PS Vita: The Secrets of Magnetism 50°
51w ago - Today Eduardo Garabito of Rain Games announced that Teslagrad is hitting PS3 and PS Vita this year with some Secrets of Magnetism detailed below.

To quote: Hi! We've wanted to write this piece for a long time. It's been great to announce Teslagrad for PS3 and PS Vita coming this year, and it's also wonderful to have this opportunity to present our game in detail.

Let's suppose that the question here is simply "Hey, what's Teslagrad about?" We've had to answer that question many, many times, and we have our response down to a science:

Teslagrad is a puzzle platformer with action elements, where magnetism and other electromagnetic powers are the key to go throughout the game, and thereby discover the secrets kept in the long abandoned Tesla Tower.

That's quite the statement. How did you like it? It's like a mantra. We just can't recall how many times we've said and/or written that. And that's why we're looking forward to this post. Now we can go into more detail. So, Teslagrad is...

Magnetism: Magnets, we know how they work! Electromagnetic forces are the lifeblood of the game, either acting as a magnetic elevator or as part of teslamancer weaponry (just to pick a couple of the many examples). Magnetic interaction allows you to not only play around as much as you...
 

Video: Transistor on PS4 and the Secrets of the DualShock 4

Video: Transistor on PS4 and the Secrets of the DualShock 4 50°
74w ago - Supergiant Games Creative Director Greg Kasavin shared a video spotlighting Transistor on PS4 showcasing some secrets of the DualShock 4 controller on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: While being part of a small independent studio like Supergiant has its share of challenges, it's got a lot of advantages going for it, too.

For instance, one of the ironic differences I've experienced going from a very big game studio to a very small one is that things can often move a lot faster when there aren't too many people around to say "no."

This simple fact is core to our creative process at Supergiant. We like quickly coming up with, and trying, new ideas all through development. If you can loop through that kind of process quickly enough, it can start to produce great results, while the many inevitable failed experiments are easy to move on from, having taught you something.

Let me tell you about one unexpected example from recent months, involving a little trick we decided to try on a whim with the DualShock 4, when we first got our hands on it.

The story of our game, Transistor, revolves around this woman called Red, who winds up with an extraordinary weapon that, among its mysteries, is able to speak to her. When we tested early versions of the game on our...

Thief Developer Q&A: PS4 and DualShock 4 Secrets Revealed 100°
75w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements revealed some PS4 and DualShock 4 secrets is a Thief developer Q&A session below.

To quote: With the power of shadows at his beck and call, master thief Garrett returns to PS3 and PS4 in 2014 with a new bag of tricks.

The well-loved stealth series has always empowered gamers with a broad array of in-game choices, whether it was using lethal or nonlethal tactics to drop nosy guards, or leveraging magic and technology to overcome adversity. The upcoming Thief is no exception.

In order to learn more about Thief's stealth systems, storytelling, and PS4 benefits, we turned to Producer Stephane Roy. He shared some incredible insight into Thief's design process, and even sheds new light on how DualShock 4 will empower PS4 thieves.

So let's see what Garrett's gotten himself into this time...

PlayStation.Blog: While developing for both PS3 and PS4, do you have any predictions for what's possible on PS4 that isn't possible on PS3?

Stephane Roy: There are multiple components to this question; an AI component, an audio component, an art component. It's very important for us to immerse players in our universe.

We want to make sure players really feel like they're Garrett, that they're...
