  7. So, I’m a bit of a Destiny addict. As such, I decided a couple months ago that I was finally going to try to get one of the game’s most sought-after weapons: Luna’s Howl. This hand cannon has a spicy set of perks and an equally spicy questline you need to tackle to earn it. You’ll spend a lot of time in the game’s Competitive PvP playlist if you decide to chase this pinnacle weapon, and as you work toward it you’ll notice the titles of its steps have a certain familiarity to them: Shock and Denial Pain and Guilt Anger and Bargaining Depression and Loneliness The Upward Turn Reconstruction Acceptance The quest steps to obtain Luna’s Howl are a reflection of the stages of grief. At first, players might see these as a subtle nod to a player’s experience attempting to climb the competitive ranks to obtain the weapon — a process that can be a test of not only a player’s skill, but their patience. But looking at the flavor text associated with each step paints a different picture: Shock and Denial “We’ve all lost something. But right or wrong, there’s no changing the past. Hear the Crucible’s a good place for getting out some aggression.” —Banshee-44, to Josef Pain and Guilt “I used to see her watchin’ your matches on Shaxx’s feed. She’d bark every time you’d fire that thing. It was music to her ears.” —Amanda Holliday, to Josef Anger and Bargaining “Anger is not your enemy here. It is your partner. When the two of you work together, your foes will burn in glorious battle.” —Lord Shaxx, to Josef Depression and Loneliness “Sometimes Louis takes off for days at a time. He needs his space. But I think he wants me to get used to him not being there. Even you Guardians have to be OK with going on alone.” —Hawthorne, to Josef The Upward Turn “Glad to see you back on your feet, Hunter. The Crucible isn’t the same without you — and your Hand Cannon.” —Lord Shaxx, to Josef Reconstruction “Such ferocity and channeled rage. It’s magnificent! Her Light burning through you is nearly blinding.” —Lord Shaxx, to Josef Acceptance “We have all borne witness to your journey, Guardian. But I know you still have some things undone. Use this to finish what they started.” —Lord Shaxx, to Josef This one is mine. Once you finally complete the “Acceptance” step and claim your prize, reading the weapon’s accompanying lore entry puts Josef’s journey and its accompanying flavor text into heartbreaking perspective: Josef opened the door. Shaxx filled the hallway beyond. “You look like hell,” said the Crucible Handler. Josef scoffed. “Get out of here. I have Hive to hunt. No time for the Crucible today.” “Hive. You lost her on the Moon?” Josef said nothing. “You aren’t the only Guardian to leave loved ones behind on that rock.” Shaxx held out a long, lacquered box. “The Gunsmith asked me to deliver this personally.” “What’s Banshee thinking? I can’t afford this.” “I took care of it. Scavenged parts from my personal collection.” Josef considered it a moment. “It’s a good gun.” “She was a good dog. This isn’t a replacement. But it will help you finish your business with the Hive. Then I expect to see you back in the Crucible. We could use the inspiration.” :( This questline is a small example of the (dare I say it) underappreciated work that goes into the lore that serves as the backbone of Destiny’s universe. With Destiny 2: Shadowkeep bringing us back to the moon this September, my journey to unravel its secrets will be underscored by a more personal mission: delivering justice to the Hive on Josef’s behalf. Until that day comes, telling his story here will have to do. View the full article

  9. Monster Hunter: World is treading into new territory in multiple ways with the upcoming release of the massive Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion. There is so much cool stuff in Iceborne — and we don’t just mean the new wintry Hoarfrost Reach ecosystem. So we wanted to give you a hands-on taste of what you can expect, along with this handy guide to prepare you for the new challenges. But first, a recap (and I’ll try to make it the fastest recap ever, so read at 2X speed for the intended effect) for those who haven’t hunted in a while, or at all: You are a hunter. Hunter of monsters. Monsters leave tracks. Your Scoutflies (green fireflies) guide you to tracks. You collect tracks and find the monster. Then you battle the monster alone or with friends: attack, get hit, observe its behavior, counter-attack, get hit again, use items, use tools, use the environment, maybe faint, and finally win. Through this Beta, you get bragging rights and item packs that unlock in the full Iceborne game when it releases. In the full version of the Iceborne expansion, you also get materials to craft new weapons and armor… to take on even more ferocious monsters! Phew! With that out of the way, let’s get to those new features: 1. Fight the cold temperatures Before you can track down and battle any monster in the Hoarfrost Reach, you have to survive the new locale’s freezing temperatures. Staying out in the cold without something to warm you up will slowly eat away at your stamina, hindering your ability to sprint and even perform some attacks. Lucky for you, the Hunter’s Guild has stocked the blue supply boxes in the campsites with Hot Drinks; make sure to take those. And if you’re all out of Hot Drinks, be on the lookout for Hot Peppers (to make more Hot Drinks) or natural Hot Springs out in the environment. Sit in one of those Hot Springs long enough to warm up and get a boost to health recovery! Highly recommended. How can you tell if you need to warm up? Simple: look for blue icons next to your stamina bar… or look at your hunter’s cold shivering animation. 2. Use the Slinger any time Have you ever missed the perfect opportunity to stop the monsters in its tracks with a timely Slinger shot because you were still sheathing your weapon? I have… (I totally didn’t faint, though… maybe). Anyways, back on topic: now you can actually use the Slinger any time, even with your weapon drawn. Some weapons will even let you integrate Slinger burst shots into your weapon’s combos! Speaking of weapons… 3. Try out new weapon moves The header pretty much covers it already, but let’s dive a little deeper. The Iceborne expansion builds on every aspect of Monster Hunter: World, and that includes updates to every weapon. I imagine the combat designers meeting up and taking a long, hard look at each of the 14 different weapon types and thinking “what would make this weapon even better?” I can’t verify that things actually went down like that, but you’ll get what I mean once you take each of them out for a spin. Some weapon types got new abilities while others got new branching combos; but all of them got some form of interaction with the Slinger and the all-new Clutch Claw mechanic, which can completely change the way you approach certain in-game situations. 4. Grapple onto monsters with the Clutch Claw Another way we’re expanding your toolkit for hunting monsters is with the addition of the Clutch Claw. This handy apparatus shoots out a grappling hook out of your Slinger and zips you right to the monster. And from there you can perform a variety of strategic (and rad) moves: Claw attacks while grappling on the monster’s head will have you force the monster to change directions, and steer them in a specific way. Flinch Shots will use up all your Slinger ammo (if you have any) and will send the monster reeling toward a wall, ledge, traps, etc. Weapon attacks while grappling on the monster will either soften up its hide for more damaging follow-up attacks, or draw out some powerful Slinger ammo from the monster that you can then use against it. Just be mindful of these two key factors when using your Clutch Claw: Stamina cost is very high for grappling onto monsters. Enraged monsters gain resistance to claw attacks and are more prone to sudden attacks, which will shake you off and damage you in the process. 5. Master it all in the new Training Room Alright, so we’ve covered new Slinger tech, new weapon features and the new Clutch Claw. Now all we need is a safe place to test it all out and practice before actual hunts… Enter the revamped Training Room! At first glance, this is gonna look a lot like the existing Training Room in Monster Hunter: World; but we’ve actually added a new feature that will make a world of difference: you can switch the standard barrels and tree trunk out for a full-sized wheeled monster dummy thing! This training dummy won’t attack you, but it will react to Clutch Claw attacks just like a monster would, so it’s a great way to practice and master the ins and outs of these new mechanics, as well as the new features or combos for your weapon of choice. 6. Save memories of your hunts with View Mode The New World introduced to us some of the most beautiful vistas and detailed environments of the Monster Hunter series. Now, due to popular demand, we’re adding a feature that lets you break away from standard camera angles and line up the perfect shot of yourself or the scenery with View Mode. One thing to note: View Mode is much like real life photography and does not pause the action… so if a monster shows up, it can very well decide that you’re its next meal and come straight for you. If you get hit by anything while View Mode is active, you’ll be bumped back to regular gameplay. 7. Enjoy a more fine-tuned difficulty scaling One of our goals with Monster Hunter is to provide a fun experience for as many people as possible, regardless of their experience level and group composition. So for this Beta we’re offering you a choice of three different quests. Plus, you’ll get to try out the dynamic difficulty setting that’s all new for the series. This adapts the difficulty whether you’re playing in one of three scenarios: solo, as a pair, or a group (3 to 4 players). Our quests this time are: “Great Devourer, Great Jagras” (Ancient Forest, Beginners) “The Big-horned Banbaro” (Hoarfrost Reach, Intermediate) “The Wild Tigrex” (Hoarfrost Reach, Advanced) 8. And more…? Yes! Okay, so I covered a lot of stuff here… but don’t worry, it’s not everything. Part of the joy of gaming is to discover new things on your own, by going off the beaten path and good old trial & error. So go out there and explore everything you can while the Beta is live!

  10. B.J. Blazkowicz is the FPS genre’s premiere lone-wolf hero. Unlike the grizzled Nazi-killing star, his twin daughter protégés appreciate the value of teamwork. Wolfenstein: Youngblood improves upon the iconic series’ silky gunplay with dynamic co-op action and dual protagonists who exhibit an infectious rapport. A recent hands-on session focuses heavily on Jessie (“Jes) and Zofia’s (“Soph”) backstory and an intense assault on a Nazi zeppelin. Flashbacks reveal how B.J. and Anya groomed their daughters to survive in a harsh world. Soph wails on a punching bag and screams as Anya pushes her past her limits. Soph learns to dial in a shot while hunting boar as B.J. explains how to hone her killer instincts. As with the past two Wolfenstein games, character interactions are refreshingly authentic with a healthy dose of absurdity (after her first Nazi kill, Soph cheers, abruptly pukes, then cheers some more). “Confronting a heavily-armored Nazi flamethrower trooper is more manageable when your partner can flank him and burst his gas tank.” The sisters’ quips and colorful dialogue add welcome color to Wolfenstein: Youngblood’s reliable gunplay. Stealth tactics or all-out firefights are still your two options for tackling the airship infiltration mission, but the twins’ power suits layer on more gameplay options from the get-go. Double jump together around vertical locales, cloak up for synced takedowns, and spend ability points to gain skills like dual-wielding or knife-throwing. An RPG-like leveling system adds a rewarding drip-feed of overarching progression to the experience. These new features, along with the new two-player co-op, elevate Wolfenstein’s gameplay to new heights. Confronting a heavily-armored Nazi flamethrower trooper is more manageable when your partner can flank him and burst his gas tank. The sting of falling in battle is smoothed over by having your partner nearby for a quick revive. A treacherous boss battle against a power suit-equipped general is more dynamic thanks to his aggro being split between both players. Every aspect of Wolfenstein’s challenging, top-tier gunplay benefits from having a friend along for the ride. A few more highlights and random observations from my time with the game: Enemies now have health bars above their head – useful info for strategizing with a friend against heavily-armored foes. Leveling up mid-firefight restores your health, a classic RPG rite that’s handy in a pinch. Melee is more powerful than ever. Your hatchet or knife is invaluable for close-quarters executions. A “ping” system allows players to quickly tag ammo, armor, and other pickups in the area so their partner can find them. Each player gets their own pickups (e.g. that piece of body armor in the corner can be grabbed by both players – no squabbling!) The twins each have colorful emotes they can direct at one another for helpful buffs (e.g. Jes raising devil horns boosts Soph’s armor). If a downed partner isn’t revived before a timer runs out, one of the players’ shared lives will be spent. Prepare to team up with your most trusted co-op buddy and find B.J. Blazkowicz when Wolfenstein: Youngblood launches on PS4 July 26. View the full article
  11. I’m Ryan Vandendyck, game director for Citizens of Space and the creator of the Citizens franchise, and this is a window into a subtle, but crucially important, element of the design of the Citizens games — namely, the diversity among the titular Citizens. The seed of the Citizens franchise began a decade ago in 2009 with a simple idea — what if regular people, the ones typically NPCs in most games, were the heroes? This simple idea was provocative enough to make us eager to explore the possibilities and we set to work on what would become Citizens of Earth, the first game in the Citizens series. But we quickly encountered the question of what these regular people would look like? If indeed the cast was meant to represent the people of Earth in Citizens of Earth and the people across our galaxy in Citizens of Space, we realized the cast would have to be diverse enough to be believably representative. This realization, far from being a restriction on us (as in, “Oh we need to make x more people that look like so-and-so, and more people that look like such-and-such”), ignited a fire of creativity that let us stretch our imaginations about the possibilities about who could be a hero. And since the average ‘hero’ in a video game is often pretty recognizable as a heroic type (how cliché to have a heroic character look heroic!), we realized we had a great opportunity to do something very different with our Citizens. In Citizens of Earth, we not only had an equal number of male and female Citizens (which was a balance we wanted to achieve from the outset) but Citizens of all ages, body-shapes, and in a variety of life circumstances. Since the game’s theme and story revolved around regular people being the heroes, we wanted the regular people playing the game to see themselves in the heroes they were able to recruit and utilize. And of course, there was a basic practical and aesthetic consideration here too — with 40 recruitable Citizens in both Citizens of Earth and Citizens of Space, it’d be pretty boring if they all looked very similar! When transitioning from Citizens of Earth to Citizens of Space, we had a new challenge — we had to consider diversity for entirely new categories of beings, specifically robots and aliens. Now unlike Citizens of Earth, this was less to do with ensuring that everyone who plays the game can see themselves in the game’s heroes since we don’t expect many aliens or robots to play the game (but aren’t giving up hope of that happening!), but more about continuing the theme of diversity and bringing regular galactic folks into the spotlight as interstellar heroes. This broad diversity is a recurring theme within Citizens of Space, in that every Citizen you meet is unique in appearance and capabilities, both in battle and out. In battle, you can expect every Citizen to play a bit different, not only because of their battle abilities but also because of the new battle minigames that you can play to power up the abilities of the Citizens! And of course, since they’re regular people, every Citizen has a day job or, as we call it in the game, a Talent that you can use to expand your ability to interact with the world. If you like buying and utilizing items, level up the various store-based Citizens (like the Pizza Bot and Chef) to gain access to new and more powerful items. If you enjoy exploring the world, level up the Miner and Decorator to smash rocks and move aside blocks to access secret areas and reap the rewards of exploration. Or perhaps you appreciate more aesthetic touches — if so, level up the Composer to customize (permanently, if you so choose) the music that plays in various levels, the Meteorologist to play around with the game’s weather systems, or the Curator to take a look at behind-the-scenes concept art. And if you like advancing your mastery of game systems, consider leveling up your Assistant or the Ship to gain better control over battle frequency and fast travel respectively. Although the core of the Citizens franchise is a fun, comedic RPG adventure, I always like threading an underlying positive message into the games we make. And for the Citizens series that message is: just like how all of the ‘regular people’ in the game are unique and special heroes, so too is every ‘regular person’ in our world a unique and special hero and we’re thrilled to continue that message of diversity and intrinsic value of regular people in Citizens of Space. I can’t wait for you to meet and recruit the huge variety of Citizens when Citizens of Space launches tomorrow on PS4. Thanks, everyone! View the full article

  17. One of my standout E3 demos this year was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, a “reimagining” of the seminal 2007 shooter classic, also developed by Infinity Ward. Studio Narrative Director Taylor Kurosaki introduced a new sequence set early in the game. The mission: intercept a group suspected of participating in a devastating terrorist attack in London. Afterwards, I got a chance to speak with Taylor. “From day one, we knew the kind of game we wanted to make, the kind of story we wanted to tell. We looked at the words Modern Warfare. What does that mean today? What would that look like?” The sequence I saw was a nailbiter, a slow, stealthy infiltration set a multi-story townhouse in northern London. Equipped with night vision goggles, the squad crept through the cramped stairwells, quietly ambushing the occupants while they ate and talked. Then, all hell broke loose. “The demo you saw today doesn’t delve deeply into the characters,” Kurosaki said. “The main character wants to make a difference. He wants to do more, and feels like he can’t. As soon as he says those words, Captain Price says, ‘you’re with me.'” “If you [want to take the gloves off, and be effective],” Kurosaki continued, “…be careful what you wish for.” If Infinity Ward is aiming to create a grounded narrative that captures the ambiguity of war, they’re on the right path. The demo was by turns suspenseful and exhilarating. Kurosaki explained that Infinity Ward doesn’t plan to pull any punches. “It should make you think. This is a very sensitive subject. This is not a pro-war game… It’s a critique. And it exposes how deadly serious this stuff is. We’re not beholden to anybody, and nothing is off limits. We critique the superpowers, we critique how they fight in these regions of conflict.” Kurosaki explained that the inspiration for this reimagined Modern Warfare came from meticulous research with a host of consultants, from veterans of the SAS, CIA, and Navy Seals. “We do our research because we want to get this right,” Kurosaki said. “We realize how important it is to treat this subject with reverence and respect.” “Some of our consultants say, ‘we had imperfect intel. We were fighting in an area that was blurry, that wasn’t black or white. And yet we are expected to be perfect. That is the burden that we carry. And we know we have to be perfect.'” “It’s not lip service,” Kurosaki continued. “It’s straight from the horse’s mouth.” “But it’s not relentless, either. There are moments of levity and camaraderie… It has heart, it has characters that you care about, and root for. It puts you into the shoes of these fighters.” Call of Duty: Modern Warfare comes to PS4 on October 25. View the full article
  18. Dominating in Doom has always been about moving, shooting, and moving some more. The iconic FPS series reinvented itself in 2016 by forcing players into intimate tooth and nail battles. Doom Eternal ratchets up the intensity while layering on sinfully fun traversal options, resulting in a delightful dance of improvised chaos. Doom Eternal’s new traversal options and weapon mods are initially a bit overwhelming. A tidy tutorial in the E3 build introduces options to double jump, air dash, climb walls, scorch enemies with an integrated flamethrower, and tap into tons of new alt-fire weapon features. I’ve devoured every Doom title to date, but the wealth of new features gave me pause. But when the fireballs started flying, everything clicked. Like jumping out of a speeding car – Doom’s demonic ambushes forced me to hit the ground running. The core of Doom Eternal’s gameplay still involves running, gunning, and “glory killing” demons to replenish your health. In a similar vein, the new Flame Belch flamethrower helps you earn armor shards, which you’ll need to endure this sequel’s tough foes. Even basic Imps seem more nimble and aggressive than the previous game, so be on the alert. A new Blood Punch ability further ratchets up melee, empowering you to (occasionally) splatter entire groups with a single mighty blow. Remembering to tap into these new kills is half the challenge, but the results are so cathartic that it soon becomes second nature. Doom Eternal bestows devastating additions to its beloved arsenal. The Plasma Cannon packs a punch and boasts a retro Doom aesthetic — its new alt fire also enables you to microwave foes into puddles of goo. The Super Shotgun is a close-range destroyer, but the real beauty is the Meathook that grapples you towards distant foes to facilitate point-blank carnage. A new rail gun-esque Ballista boasts a secondary fire that launches an exploding bolt to devastate flying enemies like Cacodemons. This is the most bad-ass weapon lineup in Doom history, and we haven’t even seen it all. Exotic weaponry is only fun if you’re alive to use it. Luckily, Doom Eternal’s new traversal options up the survival odds. In my demo, the double jump allowed me to mantle to better vantage points. The double dash ability helps dodge lunging foes, and quickly closing the gap for glory kills. These jumps and dashes are crucial for platforming through Hell’s obstacles, along with new wall-climbing sections. So far, Doom Eternal’s environmental traversal challenges are even more engaging and puzzly than the previous game. Mick Gordon’s aggressively energetic score never seems to stop, even when you die and the game has to reload your last checkpoint. Instead, it dynamically and seamlessly swaps to a more subdued version of whichever track is playing. This, along with plenty of other touches and techniques built into this scorching sequel, keeps the adrenaline pumping even when you’re loading up that second (or third, or eighth) attempt at an encounter. My blistering time with Doom Eternal was so fast-paced that my memory is a blur of blood, bullets, and fire. Below are some other insights I gathered while stretching to use all the new gameplay features: Use the Flame Belch to ignite crowds of enemies before finishing them off, scoring a wealth of armor pickups. The new shoulder-mounted grenade also rewards armor shards, and is a perfect on-the-fly splash damage option if you can’t swap to the Rocket Launcher. Never stop moving. Always assume a speedy demon is right behind you. In big arena battles, carve a looping “line” with lots of verticality to keep one step ahead of enemies. Use and abuse the double jump and dash to dart across the battlefield and avoid random enemy fire. Don’t give up if you’re low on health or ammo. That next kill may provide the pickups you need to survive the fight. Return to Hell and up your demon-slaying game when Doom Eternal hits PS4 November 22. View the full article
  19. Here at Perfect World Entertainment, we’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with the developers at Panic Button to release Torchlight II on PlayStation 4 for the very first time on September 3! This fall, Runic Games’ classic dungeon crawler will debut at PlayStation Store for just $19.99. It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost an entire decade since Runic Games unveiled the original Torchlight game on PC. This beloved little dungeon crawler first burst onto the scene right when hack’n’slash ARPGs were at the height of popularity. Torchlight captured the hearts of gamers across the world with its charming art style, earth shattering combat, lavish loot drops and unique pet system (Who could forget that ferocious little ferret?). These signature elements were incorporated into the game’s sequel in 2012, which finally introduced a way for Torchlight fans to party up with their friends in combat. Now for the first time ever, PS4 players can experience the magic of Torchlight in a new version of Torchlight II that has been developed exclusively for consoles. Panic Button has redesigned its console user interface to help players navigate through the sprawling continent of Vilderan with ease. In addition, the team has developed a new targeting system and an intuitive control scheme for PS4 controllers that makes combat feel even more powerful. In the true spirit of Torchlight II, players can team up with their friends on PSN to wipe out hordes of monsters, complete challenges and earn new PS4 Trophies. We’re excited for PlayStation.Blog readers to be the very first to learn that we will be releasing a brand new pet, exclusively for PS4! When Torchlight II launches on September 3, PS4 players will automatically unlock the Faerie, an enchanting new pet that is brand-new to the Torchlight universe. Whether you are a longtime Torchlight fan who can’t wait to relive the glory or you’ve decided to jump into the action for the very first time, there’s no better time to play Torchlight II than when it’s released on PS4. We look forward to seeing you all this fall! View the full article
  20. Alright friends, let’s get one thing straight: the combat in Final Fantasy VII Remake feels fantastic. There’s been a lot of chatter online since FF7R’s initial reveal from die-hard fans who are skeptical of the remake’s transition to a more action-oriented battle system. It’s good to be skeptical — it’s a big shift for one of the most revered games of all time — but I am both thrilled and relieved to report that while combat looks fast-paced and action-heavy, in practice there’s far more of that traditional turn-based DNA embedded here than you might think. In the hours following my hands-on time with the game, I found myself describing it to friends as a modernized approach to the original’s turn-based combat. Remember how much time was spent waiting for ATB gauges to fill in the original? Remake basically just gives you fun stuff to do while you’re waiting. Sure, your ATB gauges will fill up slowly on their own, but hammering enemies with standard attacks will accelerate the process. During gameplay this means more exciting combat that still feels faithful (perhaps even reverential) to the spirit of the original game. Allow me to elaborate. There’s a “standard attack” you can execute by hammering the Square button, and you can block with R1 or dodge with Circle. Sure, this all looks flashy and feels fun, but leaning on these skills isn’t going to get you through battles very quickly. The meat of the combat in Remake is Tactical Mode, which you can enter at any time by pressing X. When you go Tactical, time slows nearly to a stop and you gain access to a menu with options for Abilities, Spells, and Items. You have plenty of time to plan a course of action here — think of this more like a cinematic version of the turn-based combat from the original game. Equipping Materia to a character’s gear still grants access to various spells, and elemental weaknesses seem to play a significant part Remake’s combat. When battling the iconic Scorpion Sentinel boss, I was watching Barret’s ATB bars like a hawk since I knew he could cast Thunder — an attack the Scorpion definitely did not enjoy getting hit by. I found myself swapping between Cloud and Barret a bunch, getting up close with Cloud’s standard attacks to fill up ATB bars and slinging hard-hitting physical Abilities, then swapping to Barret to hit the boss with Thunder and keeping the party healed up with the Cure spell (and every so often tossing out a potion or ether, which also consumes one ATB gauge). Side note: Barret’s arm-mounted machine gun opens up interesting ranged combat options in this battle and in the moment-to-moment scraps against weaker foes. Another gauge I kept an eye on during this boss fight was the Stagger gauge, displayed just below the boss’s health bar. Dealing enough damage to max it out staggered the boss, stopping its assault temporarily and increasing damage from all other attacks for a short time. Sometimes one of your characters can get pinned down or otherwise restrained by an enemy, forcing you to swap to another team member to try and dish out enough damage to free your friend. This serves as a good reminder that you should swap between characters frequently, since they each have their own ATB gauges and powerful abilities to go with ‘em. And, of course, the Limit Break returns. Taking damage fills up your Limit gauge, and once that’s full your Tactical menu gains a new option: that beautiful, animated, rainbow-tinted “LIMIT BREAK” option. Let ‘em have it! A few other tidbits I noticed while playing Final Fantasy VII Remake (man, it still feels crazy to type that): The music. My goodness, the music. I heard a few tracks during my short time with Remake, each a fully orchestrated arrangement of the original’s timeless tunes. Listen to the music in the excellent intro to Square Enix’s E3 presentation, then imagine that treatment applied to some of the game’s other songs. Yeah. Speaking of the music, it swaps seamlessly and dynamically between different versions of the song as you enter and exit combat. Such a cool touch! Major QoL upgrade: You can slide down ladders by holding R2 or clicking the left analog stick. Those same controls also let you sprint as long as you’re not in combat. You can assign commands to other characters during combat by selecting them with L2 or R2 and navigating their Tactical menus. After I killed an enemy with a multi-hit ability, Cloud automatically redirected the remaining hits of his attack to another nearby foe, ensuring the attack wasn’t wasted. The Scorpion Sentinel boss fight had some really rad phase transitions — basically mini-cutscenes that played out completely seamlessly during the encounter. Even though I’ve destroyed this thing plenty of times in the past two decades, I was glued to the screen as I took it on this time. That’s it for now! But stay tuned — I’m sure we’ll have plenty more to talk about as we draw nearer to Final Fantasy VII Remake’s March 3, 2020 release date. View the full article
  21. Our latest look at Cyberpunk 2077 continues to impress. CD Projekt Red’s next big game shaping up to be one smart, gripping action-RPG. Deus Ex fans in particular should be paying close attention. We got our first look at the gritty world of Pacifica, the southernmost district of Night City, and a hotbed of gang warfare dominated by the Voodoo Boys. CDPR played a new infiltration scenario using two distinctly different character builds, swapping back and forth to demonstrate how different abilities can radically change the experience. At times, they almost played like two entirely different games. A hacker-focused character used stealth to evade enemies, disabled cameras, and could access “backdoor” stations to gain control over local security systems. He was armed with a nanowire, which doubles as a weapon and a remote hacking apparatus; toss it at an enemy’s head to access his or her systems, or use its keen slicing edge to pop off limbs in melee combat. Meanwhile, a brute force-focused character pried open fortified doors or overpowered enemies, carrying them as a human shield. Clash with a sentry turret? Block its oncoming fire with a hapless enemy’s body, then rip off its machinegun at close range for some extra firepower. This variety is possible thanks to fluid customization that enables players to mix and match abilities to suit their play style. A CDPR spokesperson said the studio’s goal is to create “maximum freedom” in customization. One example: it’s possible to complete the entire game without killing a single human. The game’s expansive perk tree includes a slew of combat-focused skills (blades, melee, sniper rifles, shotguns, handguns) as well as other physical characteristics (athletics, assassination, cold blooded). We don’t yet know exactly how these will all interact, but it should provide a formidable foundation no matter your preferred play style. The game’s attention to detail continues to impress, and help increase immersion in the game’s sprawling world. Spoken languages are translated in real-time via your character’s built-in HUD. While exploring the Voodoo Boys’ turf, their subtitled Haitian Creole shifted seamlessly into written English, adding convincing futuristic flair. Cyberpunk 2077’s freedom of cybernetic character customization and fluid tactical approaches makes it one of the most enticing games coming to PS4 next year.

  22. We at Beenox have been waiting for this for a long time. Today we’re thrilled to announce the plans for post-launch content for Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled! Aside from all of the tracks, characters, modes, and customization you already know about from the main game, expect even more content in the form of the CTR Nitro-Fueled Grand Prix: themed seasonal content and challenges available to anyone who has purchased the game, for no additional cost. This includes an additional track released at the start of each season, and available to play both online and locally from that season onward! The first of these seasons — the Nitro Tour Grand Prix — begins on July 3; less than two weeks after the game launches on June 21. This is our way to give Crash fans everywhere even more ways to race! Grand Prix Content is not only new, but it’s also introduced by Chick and Stew We know you’ve got questions, and luckily, we’ve got some answers. But first, let’s give a warm welcome to Chick Gizzard Lips and co-host Stew — ace rooster commentators for CTR TV, your CTR news channel! Yes, the chicken reporters from Crash Tag Team Racing are back and settling into their new roles as hosts for each new season of content! Simply tune in to CTR TV through the game and listen to Chick and Stew introduce each Grand Prix, explaining all the different challenges and rewards you can win by simply participating! We’ve Got Grand Plans for the Grand Prix What is a Grand Prix in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, exactly? Think of it as a themed season, constructed around a newly-themed track with a number of different challenges to undertake. Finish a challenge, and you’re awarded Nitro Points (think of Nitro Points like Experience Points). Complete more challenges to continue to fill that Nitro up. When you’ve filled Nitro up to certain levels in your Nitro Gauge, rewards are earned. Examples include new characters, karts, skins, and kart customization items. You’re easily able to see your Nitro Gauge in the game, which shows your progress, the items you’ve earned along the way, as well as the ones you’re still driving toward! Just keep playing the game to complete these challenges and fill the Nitro Gauge before the end of that Grand Prix to earn every challenge reward. Challenges include top speed, power slide, reverse, and other competitive challenges, and they vary from easy to quite hard, increasingly testing your skill as the season goes on. If you reckon you’re the best Bandicoot in the racing business, it’s time to prove it: with global leaderboards for every Grand Prix Season, you can compete to be the best in the world and win special in-game reward items! Redeem Those Wumpa Coins: Head to the Pit Stop As well as completing Grand Prix challenges to earn Nitro Points, filling up the Nitro Gauge, and unlocking a specific set of rewards every season, you can also earn Wumpa Coins by participating in Grand Prix challenges too. As you learned a couple of weeks ago, as you gather these Wumpa Coins, you can redeem them in CTR Nitro-Fueled’s Pit Stop for even more items. Speaking of the Pit Stop, we’re also excited to announce that during each Grand Prix a new set of items will be introduced to it, like even more characters, kart sets, wheels, paint jobs, decals, stickers, and skins. With this, players have the ability to redeem their Wumpa Coins to play as racers that go beyond the original CTR and to find many unique ways to customize their characters and karts. Season 1: Time to Get Warped — Welcome to the Nitro Tour! Now that we’ve laid the foundation for what the Grand Prix is, let’s dive into the first Grand Prix, set to launch on July 3! It’s called the Nitro Tour Grand Prix and features a track called “Twilight Tour”, which reimagines the Ancient Egypt and Arabian Town levels from Crash Bandicoot: Warped — so look for some familiar sights and sounds as you’re racing! Season 1: Say Hello to Tawna Bandicoot and the Nitro Squad! This one has been difficult to keep as a secret for so long! We’re excited to announce that as well as an enthralling new track to perfect in the first Grand Prix, players are also able to earn Tawna the Bandicoot as a playable character. Players are able to unlock Tawna by earning Nitro Points during the first Grand Prix, and are also able to earn an amazing new Motorsport Tawna skin which lets the world know that she means business! In addition to Tawna, players will be re-introduced to Ami, Isabella, Megumi, and Liz. Together, they are now known as the Nitro Squad (formerly known as the Trophy Girls in the original CTR), and are now characters that you can race with! They can be unlocked using Wumpa Coins in the Pit Stop during the first Grand Prix. These global bandicoots hail from all over the world, and are ready to compete! There will also be new Motorsport skins for them as well, to really show off their speed and style. Season 1: More than just new Characters In addition to the new characters, you will see a bunch of other items that will be a part of the first Grand Prix, including international-themed items for players to show their national pride, new kart parts, and even the return of Le Chaux, the fan favorite kart from CTTR! In short, make sure that starting on July 3, you are beating challenges in the Nitro Tour Grand Prix to fill up your Nitro Gauge, keep earning those Wumpa Coins by playing any mode in the game, and make sure you are heading to the Pit Stop to see what’s new! Looking to the Future That’s a deep dive into the first Grand Prix season, but as teased today, this is only the beginning! We have some incredible Grand Prix seasons coming up, including one that revolves around everyone’s favorite purple dragon… (if that doesn’t excite you, I don’t know what will). Our goal with the Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Grand Prix is to make sure that the race lives on, and we’re thrilled to finally be able to talk to you about it. Make sure you start practicing when the game comes out on June 21, because the real challenge begins on July 3! View the full article

  26. Hey everyone! The moment I laid eyes on the new limited edition PS4 slim created to celebrate this year’s Days of Play promotion, I started asking around to see how I could get my hands on one. The good news is I found one and they let me take photos of it with my trusty Sony a9 + 90mm f/2.8 macro lens. The bad news is I had to give it back. Either way, I got some lovely photos of the console, which I’d love to share with you here. A few things I noticed while photographing it: The bottom half of the unit is the standard black finish you may already be familiar with, but the top half gets a striking “Steel Black” treatment — not quite a full “matte” finish but not exactly glossy either. It’s smooth to the touch, but doesn’t pick up fingerprints the way a full gloss finish would. The sacred symbols emblazoned on the top / front of the console have a gorgeous brushed metal finish, and when they catch the light juuuuust right… (you probably know the meme I want to embed here). The controller looks similar to the Steel Black DualShock 4 you may or may not already own, but the four face buttons on this one have been given a striking monochrome treatment. Classy! I really want one. But that’s enough from me. You’re here for pictures!

  27. Days Gone has been out for just over a month now, and everyone at Bend Studio is thrilled by the fan response. We’ve been watching the community share beautiful and artistic shots from photo mode, and been incredibly entertained by all the emergent sandbox moments in the video streams. Coming in June there will be new game modes to share even more unique experiences, now with a ShareFactory Days Gone theme. Survival Difficulty Mode Survival difficulty mode kicks things off today. This builds on top of the current hard mode, with many tuning changes that create a much more challenging experience surviving the Central Oregon wilderness. Not only are the enemies harder, but you can’t bypass them using Fast Travel. This mode also features an immersive HUD that increases tension by removing enemy awareness indicators and outlines. The HUD is turned off, but players can temporarily display it by activating Survival Vision. In addition to bragging rights, players will earn new bike skins and trophies that can only be acquired by playing and beating Survival difficulty. Weekly Challenges Later in June, we will begin releasing Challenges. Each week a new combat, bike, or horde challenge drops with unique rules and scoring modifiers. Doing well at challenges awards wearable patches that come with perks. Patches provide small gameplay improvements like increased health, faster stamina recharging, decreased focus cost, greater melee weapon durability, better gun accuracy from the bike, and more. Patch benefits stack and even carry back into the main game. Players also earn rank and credits to buy character skins, bike skins, and wearable rings that provide more potent gameplay perks to help players perform better at all challenges. Players can only equip two rings at a time, so they have to make tactical decisions for each challenge. Rolling reloads a portion of your ammo, vaulting regenerates some stamina, headshots increase gun accuracy, and more. Rings do not carry over to the main game. Replaying a challenge with new perks opens up increased scoring possibilities and opportunities to earn new rewards to build a better score to compete against your friends and the world via leaderboards. As you may have caught above, character skins are available in the Challenges. Players will finally be able to change Deacon’s outfit by choosing between three looks: apocalypse Deacon, flashback Deacon, and — for the ultimate in fan service — shirtless Deacon. This is in addition to ten other characters including Boozer, Rikki, Addy, Iron Mike, and more! Our first gameplay challenge, “Surrounded,” drops in late June. Players must survive an infinite horde onslaught in the town of Sherman’s Camp. They’ll be scored on how long they survive against not only the Freakers, but a clock that is constantly ticking down — killing Freakers adds more time so players can’t run and hide — they have to stay engaged in the fight to get the best score. They can also earn point multipliers by executing specific sub-challenges like environmental kills, headshots, and collecting ears while on the run. Twelve challenges over 12 weeks makes this the summer of Days Gone and the summer of fun. View the full article
