Videos: Miegakure for PS4: Exploring a 4D World on PlayStation 4

50°
12w ago - President of MTB Design Works Inc Marc ten Bosch shared some new PS4 Miegakure videos today spotlighting the exploring of a 4D world on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Miegakure is a 4D game. It lets players explore a detailed 4D world and use their ability to move in 4D to perform miraculous feats. In this game, the fourth dimension is not time! It is an actual fourth dimension of space, that works just like the first three dimensions we are familiar with. If you count time, this game is 5D!

For a while games used to be 2D, taking place solely along two directions. For example, a game character could only move forwards and backwards, or jump up and down. Then came computers powerful enough to render 3D graphics, which allowed for full 3D movement: up / down, backwards / forwards and left / right.

(Of course, the graphics we see, while they are computed in 3D, are displayed on a 2D screen. They are projected down from 3D to 2D, in a way that mimics how our eyes perceive the third dimension.)




But it doesn't stop there. If in a 2D game every object's position is represented in the computer using two numbers, and if in a 3D game every object's position is represented using three numbers, what if each...
 

Sony Invites Fans to Enter the Impossible World of Relativity on PS4

250°
16w ago - Developer and Designer Willy Chyr invites fans to enter the impossible world of Relativity on PS4 today with details below.

To quote: Hello! My name is Willy Chyr - I'm an artist and indie game developer based in Chicago. I'm happy to announce that my game Relativity will be coming to PS4 in 2015, and you will get to try it at PlayStation Experience next month in Las Vegas!

Relativity is a game that re-imagines the laws of the universe. What if the normal rules of gravity no longer applied? The basic mechanic of the game is the ability to change gravity, allowing you to re-orient yourself to walk on walls and ceilings. In this world, up is down and down is up. It's all relative.

Let's take a look at what an early puzzle in the game is like. In the gif below, we need to get the purple block to stay on the purple square in order to unlock a door, but the block keeps sliding down. The solution: we lock the blue block in place while in the blue gravity, and then use it as a shelf to hold up the purple block.

What you just saw is the basic gameplay mechanic. But Relativity is more than just about stacking cubes - there is an entire world full of wonder and impossible...
 

TowerFall Dark World Expansion Coming Early 2015 to PlayStation 4

50°
16w ago - Indie Game Developer Matt Makes Games Inc Matt Thorson confirmed today that their TowerFall Dark World Expansion is coming in early 2015 to PlayStation 4.

To quote: It's hard to believe that it's been 8 months since TowerFall Ascension launched on PS4. I have to thank all of our wonderful fans on PlayStation - the community response has been fantastic.

Since launching TowerFall, we've had countless requests for new levels, characters, power-ups, and modes. A lot of your suggestions have been really valuable, and after I recovered from the game's launch back in March, I began forming new ideas of my own. Slowly but surely, our plans for an expansion took shape. I'm excited to announce that the Dark World Expansion will hit PS4 in early 2015.

We want to call this an expansion rather than DLC, because it expands the game in every direction rather than providing small incremental additions. Approaching it this way allows us to tie all the new stuff together in a very cohesive manner. For you this means more playable archers, levels, modes, power-ups, variants, trials, and more.

Joining the roster we have the red archer, the Vainglorious Ghoul. As her appearance suggests, she captains an infamous ghost ship known as The Amaranth. The Amaranth, it turns out, is also one of four...
 

Terraria Comes to PS4 Tuesday: Bigger World, New Items, Cross-Play

100°
16w ago - 505 Games Senior Brand Manager Richard Gittins announced that Terraria comes to PS4 this Tuesday, complete with a bigger world, new items and cross-play!

To quote: It's hugely exciting to be bringing the world of Terraria to PS4.

We didn't feel it was necessary to tinker with the core mechanics of the game, which have underpinned its success to date, but we've definitely been able to take this console version to the next level and implement some fantastic new features in the process - It looks amazing running in HD on PS4 too!

The first thing to talk about is the scale of the PS4 version, which is almost triple the size of the original PS3 game.

A truly huge amount of content and features have been added, with well over 1,000 new items including 10 new ores, 4 new wood types, 31 new brick types, 12 new wing types, 29 new tinker combinations, 50 new paintings, 8 new friendly NPCs, 15 new pets, over 100 new enemies, 4 new bosses ... the list goes on, and on!

We've also listened to feedback from the community and looked at how people play the original console games to figure out where slight improvements might be made.

We wanted to address the immense scale of Terraria's world, which can actually be a blessing and a curse! Now players will be able...
 

Video: 6 Moments from Far Cry 4's Open World on PlayStation 4

18w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared a PS4 video today showcasing 6 moments from Far Cry 4's open world on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Let loose in Kyrat, I was immediately overwhelmed by the volume of play built into this open world space.

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Far Cry 4 invites players back into a first-person exploration of quiet villages, dangerous tyranny, and majestic views. It's packed with emergent missions that can hook players into gunfights and high-speed chases. It has laughs and bitter choices.

Far Cry 4 tells the story of Ajay Ghale, a native of Kyrat who has returned to its war-torn valleys to spread his mother's ashes. Ajay is pulled into the civil unrest plaguing the area thanks to the sociopathic despot Pagan Min and his violent regime.

I asked Game Director Pat Methe to share five of his favorite moments from Far Cry 4. Watch the video below and follow along. As a bonus, I sat down and played Far Cry 4 myself and picked out six things that caught my eye during a three-hour binge session.




1.) Emergent Missions
