Assassin's Creed IV's First PS3 Multiplayer Event: Under Control

Assassin's Creed IV's First PS3 Multiplayer Event: Under Control 50°
70w ago - Ubisoft Annecy Community Developer Valentin Pasquier-Desvignes announced that Assassin's Creed IV's first PS3 multiplayer event is dubbed Under Control.

To quote: Starting this Friday and through the entire weekend, join the Assassin's Creed multiplayer community in "Under Control", the first of a series of Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag multiplayer events where you will work together with your fellow Assassins and Templars to get everyone special in-game prizes!

For "Under Control", you will need to play Domination games and pile up territory captures with our most aristocratic characters: the Huntsman, the Puppeteer, the Dandy and the Duelist.

For the uninitiated, Domination games will have you and your team working together to capture territories and defend them from the opposing team to score. The team who fills the scoring gauge or obtains the highest score at the end of the countdown wins.

For this first multiplayer event, we'll be providing community objectives to get awesome in-game prizes. Starting Friday, you can check out the events section in-game to find out what the current community objectives are.

Outside of the community objectives, you'll find a number of things you can win even before reaching the community objective. For instance, you get...

Videos: Learn the Secrets of The Last of Us PS3 Multiplayer 200°
81w ago - IGN Senior Editor Colin Moriarty has shared several videos today unveiling some of the secrets from The Last of Us PS3 Multiplayer for fans below.

To quote: Greetings, PlayStation-ers! My name is Colin Moriarty, IGN's Senior Editor.

If you're a PlayStation fanatic - and since you're on the PlayStation.Blog, you probably are - you may recognize me as the man in charge of IGN's PS4, PS3, and PS Vita coverage. You may also know me as one-third of Podcast Beyond.

Today, I write my inaugural PlayStation.Blog post to tell you about something I'm very excited for. See, I'm pretty darn keen on The Last of Us... so much so, in fact, that I got sucked in for about 40 hours worth of multiplayer madness after the game launched. And that got me thinking: who's responsible for The Last of Us' most understated feature, its online suite?

Naturally, I found an answer. Naughty Dog's David Ballard was kind enough to come to IGN's San Francisco headquarters to record a series of videos with me, one for each map in the multiplayer suite.

As an integral part of the creation of...

Video: Arkham Origins PS3 Multiplayer Takes Crimefighting Online 50°
83w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill shared a video below today announcing Arkham Origins PS3 Multiplayer takes crimefighting online!

To quote: The Batman: Arkham series has proven that superhero games have the potential to be some of the best in the biz, but they've been strictly single-player outings so far. In Batman: Arkham Origins, WB Games and Splash Damage are building an online multiplayer experience to complement the main campaign. And guess what - it's really good.

Called Invisible Predator Online, this new mode takes the concept of the earlier games' Challenge Rooms and puts other players into the role of the Joker and Bane's thugs. Yes, this raises lots of questions. The general premise is as follows:

Eight players take to the streets of Gotham in the game's multiplayer mode: three Joker thugs, three Bane thugs, and two heroes in the form of Batman and Robin. The thugs compete to wipe out the other team and capture control points in what plays out like a third-person, cover-based shooter. Meanwhile, the two heroes prowl the playfield in an attempt to intimidate enemies and provoke the gang leaders into calling the whole operation off.

When playing as Batman or Robin, variety matters. Repeating the same takedowns over and over will result in lower...
