  1. Hey there PlayStation.Blog readers! My name is Michał “Luigi” Dobrowolski, and I’m a Senior Game Designer at CD Projekt Red. For more than a year now we’ve been working on our latest title, which I’m here to tell you more about here today. Gwent started out as a mini-game in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. During your adventure, characters you met along the road would sometimes invite or challenge you to play a friendly game of cards. But what was meant to be a fun addition to the story-driven open-world RPG unexpectedly became the main objective for many players. Following the release of Wild Hunt, we received hundreds of messages from fans asking us to create a standalone, multiplayer version of Gwent so they could play with friends. Some even made their own physical cards and boards. Seeing how passionate people are about Gwent, we decided to answer the call. Long story short, we started working on a fully-realized competitive card game called Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. It’s been a long road and lots of hard work, but we’re finally in Public Beta today, and with that the game is now available on PlayStation 4. Gwent: The Witcher Card Game | PlayStation.com The basic concept of Gwent is simple. After creating an army consisting of characters, spells and other elements from The Witcher series of games, players from around the world clash in fast-paced duels against each other. Every match is a three-round affair that starts with you and your opponent drawing 10 cards from your decks. Each of you then play one card per turn onto a board divided into three rows: melee, ranged, or siege. To take home the game, you need to win two out of three rounds and to do that, you need to gather more points than your opponent does in each one. It’s everything that made the original Gwent feel fun and fresh, cranked up to 11 with the addition of multiplayer, ranked mode, new cards and abilities, and a complete visual overhaul. There are five playable factions to choose from: the mighty Northern Realms, proud and fearless Skellige, brutal Monsters, shadowy Scoia’tael and the cunning Nilfgaardian Empire. Each one feels and plays differently, and can employ a number of varied strategies based on the abilities available to them. For example, one of the ways to play Monsters focuses on them consuming their own units and gaining their power as a result. With Nilfgaard, you could create a strategy that relies on revealing enemy cards and controlling the battlefield using that knowledge. If you want to know more, we’ve prepared a set of videos describing playstyles of the different factions available in Gwent. You can check them out on the official YouTube channel of the game. Because a match plays across three rounds, choosing to forfeit a round is a viable strategy to gain an advantage for the next one. There’s no mana or other resources limiting what cards you can play when, so if you want to start the match by playing your strongest one, you’re free to do so. The one resource you have to keep in mind are the cards themselves, as you’re only guaranteed a limited number of additional cards each round. Having the ability to play units across three rows instead of one opens up a number of tactical options, too — for example, using the ability of the Geralt: Aard card to push a row of enemy units into one that’s consumed by a weather effect will cause the opponent to lose a lot of points. All of this makes Gwent a different kind of card game, where winning is based more on skill, strategy and quick thinking rather than blind luck. “It was important for us to make the cards the true heroes of the game.” Something that was very important for us as a studio when working on Gwent was to make the cards the true heroes of the game. As a studio that loves to tell compelling stories and create beautiful visuals, each card was designed by our talented art team to be a miniature work of art and tell its own unique story. Every card has its own animated version, bringing each artwork to life. Whether it’s Geralt fighting a horde of nightmarish monsters, or King Foltest watching over his troops as they prepare for battle, these are actual animations, not just effects put on top of a 2D image. We’ve got a lot more planned for Gwent in the future, with one of the most exciting things we’re working on being single player campaigns. These won’t be simple challenges or opportunities to play cards, but brand new adventures set in the world of The Witcher, created by the same people who made The Witcher 3. Starring both new and returning characters from the The Witcher universe, each one will offer hours of story-driven content full of choice and consequence fans have come to love about our games. So, how about a round of Gwent? You can download the game right now from PlayStation Store for free. And if you’d like to give your PlayStation 4 some Gwent treatment, there’s a free theme and a set of profile avatars available, too! We hope you’ll enjoy playing The Witcher Card Game and please do let us know what you think in the comments here, or on Gwent’s official forums, Facebook, and Twitter. See you in the game!

  3. Hi – I’m Antonela, Community Manager here at 505 Games. Today, we’re celebrating the launch of our action RPG sandbox title, Portal Knights, on PlayStation 4. Portal Knights began as an Early Access project. A title that would be built with our community, for our community. To see our creation now on console is just super exciting for the entire team! We basically started off with a blank canvas. With a vision in mind, we began bringing the idea of Portal Knights to life, applied a layer of paint, then opened our doors to our community to get their feedback and suggestions. Over the last 15 months, we’ve been listening to our players, made changes and added a bunch of awesome new features in response. Now we have a painting to be proud of! Portal Knights | PlayStation.com Community Feedback Last month, we released a free trial on the PlayStation Store. The response from the community has been overwhelmingly positive and we’ve loved seeing what you guys have been up to and built in-game. You’ve really impressed us! Please, keep up the great work. So… Before you continue your adventure or jump in for the first time, we wanted to give you a rundown on our top 5 things to do in Portal Knights. Everyone ready? Create a Hero Are you a Mage, a Ranger, or perhaps a Warrior? Pick a character class, name him / her, customise them using the dozens of options available and head off to Squire’s Knoll, the first island in Portal Knights. Level up as you take down enemies and bosses, assign attribute points to your hero, unlock powerful RPG talents, craft class-specific gear, weapons and much more. Explore the Worlds Portal Knights has a wide range of islands to explore, each with unique resources to find, quests to complete and enemies to defeat. Take on tasks assigned by the world’s NPCs and help restore the lands that The Fracture has taken over. Be prepared for changing landscapes in Portal Knights’ timed events and keep an eye out for seasonal events too. Build a Base Protect yourself from Hollow Knights and store your loot somewhere safe by creating a base. With over 300 blocks and items available, pick an island of your choice and be as creative as you can be with your construction! Oh… And be sure to show us your builds! Adventure With Friends Don’t want to adventure alone? That’s OK! Portal Knights can be enjoyed in local 2 player split-screen, or online in 4 person cooperative multiplayer. Join forces to gather resources together, build together and take down enemies together! What’s more, you can start the game in single player, then invite friends along, anytime you like. Take on the Portal Guardians Get ready to take on the Portal Guardians, each located in their own unique areas on their own islands! Oh and if you like an even greater challenge, put your skills to the test against our Hard Mode bosses. Thank You Once again, we’d like to say a massive THANK YOU for the incredible level of support shown by our community! You’ve all been amazing and going forward, we plan to keep on pushing. We love hearing suggestions and feedback from you guys, so please keep engaging with us! Stay up to date with Portal Knights by heading over to our website and/or following our official PSN account.

  4. Hello! This is Ben Gilbert, Lead Designer for Marvel Heroes Omega. I’m very excited to announce that the open beta for Marvel Heroes Omega on PlayStation 4 begins tomorrow on May 23! Soon, players around the world can become the Hero! Play as Spider-Man, the Avengers, the Defenders, the X-Men, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and so many more. We’ve heard so many stories from our closed beta players about how much fun they’ve been having playing Marvel Heroes Omega couch co-op with friends and family. It really hearkens back to those classic Marvel co-op games from days past and we hope you enjoy it, too. Can’t wait till May 23? It’s still not too late to grab a Founder’s Pack to play right now. There’s a variety of Packs to choose from at PlayStation Store along with a special War Machine Founder’s Pack exclusively for PlayStation Plus members.

  5. Alright, let’s be honest. 10 years ago, who the hell thought I’d be here? Well, here I am writing a guest column on the PlayStation Blog. So yep – I’m back on console, and it’s pretty awesome TBH. PS4 is a new audience for my studio and me (although many people who work with me have shipped PlayStation exclusive titles before). Fun fact: my COO and colleague Arjan Brussee helped found Guerrilla Games. We also made the original Jazz Jackrabbit together, like a bazillion years ago. Small industry. Don’t be a jerk. We worked out this little writing arrangement with Sony so I could do a proper introduction to all of you and share information about LawBreakers. I feel like it’s something I should do. Soooooo… Hi. I don’t want this to be some lame marketing garble. I’m going to be honest about where I’ve been, what we’ve been doing and where we all are going. So where have I been? KINDA SORT-OF LAWBREAKERS ELEVATOR PITCH: During my “retirement”, honestly, I was bored as hell. My waifu and I were ready to strangle each other. I was getting fat. Ultimately, I couldn’t ignore the creative need to make something new. During this time, I was inspired by a childhood dream about gravity being disrupted in a BIG way. I also took a Zero G flight once. That was pretty crazy. So, LawBreakers is the culmination of my dreams as a kid, my career in this industry and my lifelong passion for games. So there we have the inception (HORN SOUND) of LawBreakers. A new futuristic world where the Moon mysteriously exploded, an event known as The Shattering, that devastated Earth. Afterward society recovered, using new gravity anomalies to rebuild and advance. The setting is the perfect backdrop for a super fast, omni-directional team-based FPS where we challenge players to get the hell off the ground. The floor is lava, bruh. It’s the skill-based competitive shooter made by shooter fans for shooter players that my team and I have always wanted to play. It honors the old and embraces the new. Old being the feeling of soaring through the air at mach-speed and rocket-jumping and such. The new as offering a variety of characters each with different movement abilities, multiple weapons, combos and more. For example: Our “healer” in LawBreakers can be an offensive powerhouse. In the hands of a skilled player, this role can simultaneously heal two teammates at once, all while lobbing grenades from high above like some flying human artillery cannon. Stuff like that is what LawBreakers is all about. Also we’ve added a few new things too, like being able to blind-fire behind you with any ranged weapon. Yep. So, about where we’ve been: We’ve actually been working on LawBreakers since 2014 after founding my new development studio, Boss Key Productions, with Arjan, and let me tell you, creating a studio and a game from scratch is tough AF. Back then it was PC only and free-to-play. Yes, I can officially say we “course-corrected” (to use awful corporate speak) to pivot away from things like F2P. Why? Because we’ve been listening to community along the way and are trying to do what’s best for players, and in turn, best for the game. Funny how those two things work together, right? Our publisher Nexon has supported us along the way, working with us to do what’s right for gamers, and we respect that. Besides, they got tired of making kart-racing games. After a few twists and turns last year after our initial Alpha, the game really got in front of a lot of players. There was no NDA so people could post footage, and we found that there was a lot of interest from console players for this very fast, competitive multiplayer game. To be honest my Twitter feed was one part “Bring LawBreakers to console!” or “Fix Gears!” (hah) So, we made something spectacularly vertical. Something heavily skill-based and super competitive, with our twist on game modes that haven’t been done before. We were making the game we wanted to play, and it seemed to resonate. When deciding which platform to bring the game to these players, it was a hard choice. I’ll leave it at that. The choice, obviously, was PS4. Ok – here’s where we all are going. LawBreakers is coming out this year on PS4 as a digital-only title. Discs are like voicemail, so ten years ago. It’s important to know that something that’s important for the studio and me is to create a game with no season passes and no “pay-to-win” mechanics at a price that is what we feel is fair to players. It will be $29.99. We don’t want to fragment our playbase with silo’d season pass BS, nor do we want to pollute matchmaking with “pay-to-win” incentives. We want to create a game ecosystem that’s all about highly skilled players competing on even playing fields, and a landscape for average players to aspire to become better. More details on launch date soon. Right, PR? So, in conclusion, I’m excited to ship this bad boy and get it into your grubby hands later this year. Remember to look up! -B View the full article

  9. Justin here, reporting from the Destiny 2 Gameplay Premiere event in Los Angeles! I’m sure you were tuned in live when they revealed the first-ever gameplay footage for Bungie’s new sequel, but just in case you weren’t I’ll drop this right here. Photos from the Destiny 2 Gameplay Premiere So! Zac and I were lucky enough to play Destiny 2 after the presentation ended, going hands-on with a new Strike called “The Inverted Spire.” It takes place on a Vex-occupied planetoid called Nessus. Here’s a runthrough, with a few notes from Destiny 2 Project Lead Mark Noseworthy (thanks Mark!): A few personal highlights: Platforming! I happened to be the only one on my Fireteam who made it across the Strike’s early jumping puzzle on the first try *dusts off shoulder* New enemy types: We saw a “War Beast,” a dog-like animal that was tough to pin down, as well as Incendiors: Cabal soldiers with gas tanks strapped to their backs. And you know what to do when you see a gas tank in a videogame… More interactive — and dangerous — environments: About halfway through The Inverted Spire, we encountered a hollowed-out excavation site with a series of massive blades rotating around the area as they drilled into the planet. The goal here was to fight through the enemy ranks while avoiding these giant blades. This made for a… difficult section of gameplay. I don’t want to talk about it. Atheon’s cousin? Okay, okay, I don’t know if the boss of the Strike is actually related to Atheon in any way, but I mean, his name is Protheon. I’ll believe whatever I want to believe! Anyway, the boss fight was quite impressive — a multi-layered affair that saw us (and Protheon) changing tactics multiple times as we whittled down his three-segment health bar (oh yeah, enemy health bars are split into segments now). A selection of environmental art from Destiny 2 A few more general observations about Destiny 2, based on what we saw and played today: No more Primary / Secondary / Heavy weapons: Bungie is reworking weapon loadouts in Destiny 2 — Now you’ll equip a Kinetic weapon, an Energy weapon, and a Power weapon. I saw Sniper Rifles in the Power slot, Hand Cannons in the Energy slot… it’s all different! New weapon types: Submachine guns work similarly to the HMG familiar to D1 players, but less powerful and tailored for closer ranges. Grenade Launchers… well, they’re pretty self-explanatory. Class Abilities: A new, third rechargeable icon next to your melee and grenade. Warlocks can hold circle to create a small rift on the ground that either heals or empowers allies. Hunters get a dodge ability (a la Shadestep, but on a cooldown) that will refill your melee charge if used near enemies. Titans can create a small barrier in front of them to protect themselves and teammates. As this barrier takes damage, it displays a cool “shattering” effect so you can tell at a glance how close it is to breaking. Reworked Subclasses: One of the big stars today was the new Warlock subclass: Dawnbreaker. This is a solar subclass with a flaming sword super, kind of a cross between a Raze Lighter (because fire) and a Bolt Caster (because projectiles). Hunters and Titans will each also have a new subclass: Arcstrider and Sentinel, respectively. We also played a couple matches of the new Crucible mode, Countdown. This is an attack/defend mode where one team tries to set charges in specific locations while the other team plays defense. A few quick observations from two rounds of Countdown: Smaller teams: Countdown pitted teams of four against each other, leading to more intimate firefights and an increased need for team coordination. We don’t yet know what other modes will be available or what their player counts will be. Callout locations: No more trying to remember whether you died in “Hallway” or “Alley” — callouts are now baked into the game, displayed in the top-left corner of the screen. New HUD elements: You can now see which Guardians are down, which ones have Supers ready, and when somebody picks up Power ammo. Time-to-kill felt longer: This could be the weapons we were using, or it could be (and likely is) my relative lack of skill, but it felt like it took significantly longer to take down hostile Guardians in the Crucible. Bonus: If you’d like to hear Zac and me talk about our initial impressions of Destiny 2, there’s a place you can do that! That place is right here: Phew, so that’s Destiny 2! A small taste of it, anyway. There’s still a lot to learn, and I suspect we’ll have plenty of opportunities before the game launches later this year. If you have any questions, toss ’em in the comments and I’ll answer whichever ones I can! View the full article
  10. Hello everyone. It’s been a while since you’ve seen fresh footage from our new game Nex Machina. And with it, we bring good news. We’re glad to announce that Nex Machina will be arriving on PS4 June 20. This is the day that Housemarque will go down in infamy for creating one of the simplest, purest action arcade games of our generation. A game that will remind you of the arcade classics of the 80’s, but with modern technology to complement that pure twin-stick joy. Additionally we would also like to announce local co-op. This is something that we’ve been trying to keep secret for a long time, but many of our friends have already guessed it was coming. Local co-op will allow two players to play side by side, just like in the old school arcades, competing or helping each other out. So please enjoy the above new trailer, which includes footage from the Winter Tide level with some two-player action! Keep your eyes open for Nex Machina arriving June 20 on PS4.

  13. Greetings, Wangsters! The teams at Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital are excited to announce that Shadow Warrior 2 will hit PS4 on May 19 and will launch with The Shadow Warrior Collection that includes a free download of Shadow Warrior for PS4! The Shadow Warrior series began with what is lovingly referred to as Shadow Warrior Classic in 1997, continued with our 2014 reboot Shadow Warrior, and now the release of Shadow Warrior 2 on the franchise’s 20th anniversary. It’s a pretty exciting moment for us and really awesome that we get to release the game on PS4 during this important milestone in the series. Our team has built upon this legacy of classic first-person shooter gameplay in Shadow Warrior 2 by blending fast-paced gunplay with the series’ trademark melee combat. Players will have access to dozens of weapons, from handguns and assault rifles to katanas and chainsaws, allowing them to thin the enemy horde from a distance before jumping into the fray and cutting down what remains. This interplay between ranged firing and melee combat drives Shadow Warrior 2 and forces an interesting risk-versus-reward decision for players when deciding on how to handle each combat situation. Getting this “ninja feel” was extremely important to our team during development of Shadow Warrior 2 on PS4 and we spent a lot of time testing how switching from ranged gunplay to close quarters melee combat felt on DualShock 4. It was crucial that players be able to both aim and fire their ranged weapons at a distance and then seamlessly (and quickly) switch to melee weapons to perform brutal slashes and devastating combos at close range. The team took great care in putting together a weapons selection configuration that took advantage of the DualShock 4’s features to keep the player in control and have all weapons at their disposal easily. The dual thumbsticks, touch pad, and directional pad can all be used in different ways to equip, charge, and execute attacks so that players really get that ninja feel while traversing the levels. We’re proud of our results and think the PlayStation community will appreciate this attention to detail that is so crucial when playing a white knuckle FPS like Shadow Warrior 2. The other important feature that our team (and our fans) wanted to nail was online cooperative play. Shadow Warrior 2 has a pretty slick non-linear campaign that allows players to accomplish some key missions in a specific order while veering off into side missions to collect new weapons and items while leveling up their persistent character. While it’s no doubt fun to go at it solo, Shadow Warrior 2 really shines when you have three friends tackling missions together and working as a team to take down some of the larger boss enemies together. Shadow Warrior 2 is Flying Wild Hog’s biggest game to date and we’re thrilled that it’s arriving on PS4 next week. Our hope is that fans of the first game will appreciate how Shadow Warrior 2 takes everything to the next level and that new players will enjoy the free download of Shadow Warrior alongside their purchase of Shadow Warrior 2. Thanks for all your support along the way and big thanks to our friends at PlayStation for helping make this release possible. View the full article
  14. Hi PlayStation players here on Earth (and elsewhere). I’m Jakob Munthe, product manager at Paradox Interactive, and today I finally get to reveal Surviving Mars to you — a survival city-builder set on our closest galactic neighbor. It’s created by Haemimont Games and Paradox. We’ve been working on this project for a while now, and I’m eager to give you a first look at what we’ve done so far. First and foremost, we wanted our game to answer a key question: what will be required for humanity to establish a colony on Mars, and make it livable and sustainable? How can we set up the standards of civilization that we’re accustomed to, when we’re millions of miles from home with no way to get outside help? We want Surviving Mars to tell a plausible story about the process, told through the lens of science, along with (of course) challenges and objectives that players will want to overcome for their own unique colonies. Making a game that tackles those tasks requires us to present the situation in a visually compelling but scientifically feasible manner. In creating the game’s setting, we borrow as much from the works of NASA and SpaceX as we do from writers like Asimov and Clarke. Our game is a serious take on sci-fi — but one with an optimistic tone that updates the aesthetics of the original space race to the technology and societal outlook of today. As for the gameplay, it’s still a little early in development to share all of the nuts-and-bolts of game mechanics with everyone. What we will say is that Surviving Mars is a hardcore survival city-builder, where players will be tasked with creating a livable colony in the harsh, hostile environs of Mars, floating far removed from any help. Players’ colonies will have to produce water, air, and food on a planet that doesn’t have much of any to spare, while creating habitats with enough activities for colonists to do that they don’t go mad from boredom or isolation. Yet, where there are challenges and threats, there are also solutions and hope. The members of your Mars colony are humanity’s best: scientists that will create new knowledge and techniques for your new lives, and intrepid explorers that will find and solve greater mysteries than any on Earth. In the end, all of us working on this project are genuinely excited with what is becoming something quite special. We know you will be excited as well and we’ll have a lot more to share as we move closer to launch. See you on Mars! View the full article
