Firewall Zero Hour for PS VR Impresses at PlayStation Experience

Tue, 12/12/2017 - 17:00

Announced during PlayStation Experience 2017’s opening presentation, Firewall Zero Hour will deploy 4v4 tactical FPS action to the PS VR battlefield. My hands-on demo pointed to an extremely promising game — in fact, perhaps the most promising and exciting VR game I’ve played.

If you’ve ever loved a Rainbow Six or SWAT game, you’ll immediately understand the appeal of Firewall. The pacing is deliberate and methodical; the action quick and decisive. It’s a tense game of cat-and-mouse between two (human) teams. Player communication is paramount, and quick wits will get you further than a quick trigger finger.

I played a series of matches set in a shadowy mansion. I quietly crept from room to room with three teammates en tow. Our objective: a laptop hidden somewhere in the house. The other team lay in wait, ready to spring an ambush or ward off our attack.

We activated our flashlights, the beams casting realistic-looking shadows on the walls, and slowly navigated the darkened rooms. As we inched our way closer to the objective, we kept up a stream of tense chatter, speculating where the opposing team might be lurking and calling out safe zones.

Firewall Zero Hour image 2

While passing through a gloomy hallway, a burst of gunfire roared from the top of a nearby stairwell. The guy next to me dropped like a rock. I spun to my left, raising my PS VR Aim Controller at the shadow I spotted at the top of the stairs, and let loose with my shotgun. I clipped him, but he slipped back around the corner before I could finish him off.

I tossed a grenade up the staircase to buy some time, then turned to move quickly towards the objective. Being in PS VR expanded my sense of spatial awareness, and I found myself carefully checking corners and blind spots.

Ahead, our point man traded shots with two hostiles who were holed up in a dining room. Instinctively, I went for the flank, slipping around the corner and making for the back door I had noticed. I pushed through the doors, tossed a frag grenade, and hip-fired until both figures crumpled to the ground. We pushed on to the objective and the win.

We’ve all played games like this before. But in VR, the experience feels completely fresh and exciting. Pinned down by enemy fire? Peek out from behind the corner — or over a countertop — to trade shots. Fleeing some determined pursuers? Slipping into a sneaky hiding spot or ambush position feels far more intuitive.

The build I played was still early: just one map, three character classes, and three weapons (rifle, shotgun, silenced SMG). The good news is, developer First Contact Entertainment has confirmed that the final game will have more weapons and maps, as well as weapon attachments and character progression as they prepare for launch in 2018.

The game technically supports both DualShock 4 and the PS VR Aim Controller, but if you’ve got the choice I strongly suggest going with the Aim Controller for a more immersive feel.

The controls are well laid out: the front analog stick handles movement and sprinting; the rear stick handles quick-turns. Frag and flash grenades map to the front two triggers, while reloading, crouching, weapon swapping, and interacting with objects are assigned to the traditional face buttons on the stock of the Aim Controller.

As in Farpoint, you can raise the Aim Controller up to aim down the sight, or fire from the hip. I generally opted for the latter.

Firewall Zero Hour is shaping up nicely — I’m eager to get more hands-on time and learn more about the final game, so stay tuned to PlayStation.Blog for more updates.

Papers, Please Out Today For PS Vita

Tue, 12/12/2017 - 16:41
A Long Time

First item, top of the page. This version of Papers, Please was announced over three years ago. That’s a long time brewing for a relatively simple pixel-art game. There’s a few ingredients in the mix for this delay but the main fault lies with me.

I had a great bunch of people to help with this project — all the port programming was handled by James Gray and others, engine support from WayForward, testing by Ratloop Asia, and submission assistance from Coatsink.

My responsibility was gluing it all together and in the long tradition of “one simple job”, the best I could manage was the slow-setting kind of glue that takes forever to dry. Working as a single developer has its advantages but managing multiple projects is not one of them. Unfortunately it was Papers, Please on PS Vita that suffered the most and I apologize for that.

The Game

Ok, the game is available today so let’s turn this around and segue into what we’ve got here: Papers, Please on PS Vita. The most portable version yet, document inspection and stamping in the supple palms of your capable hands.

Content-wise, this version has all the features of the desktop and tablet versions. All 31 days of singleplayer story mode with branching narratives, 20 endings, “endless” mode with online leaderboards, and stamping so much stamping.

Papers, Please for PS Vita

The Squeeze

Even though it’s a low-resolution pixel-art game, Papers, Please was originally designed to be played on a big screen. When I wrote it back in 2013 I’d just come off a mobile-only project and wanted to rebel against the low-density large-touch-target design necessary for mobile. So the game packs a lot of small stuff into a big space. There’s three separate sections of the screen that need to be visible at all times: booth, desk, and checkpoint.

The big challenge in making it work well on PS Vita was fitting everything onto the smaller screen without sacrificing the core document shuffling mechanics. Luckily Vita has a great touchscreen and, critically, nearby physical controls. For this version we increased the desk size slightly, floated the booth over the border view only when needed, and added vertical scrolling to shift between the booth+checkpoint and the desk. The analog sticks and directional buttons can be used to quickly scroll up/down and after a small adjustment it feels completely natural to use your left thumb for scrolling and your right fingers for touching (or vice versa, no preference, left=right, all love.)

The Tech

Papers, Please was developed in a programming environment called Haxe/OpenFL. Haxe is the language and OpenFL the engine that enables Flash-like applications to run natively on desktops (PC/Mac/Linux) or mobile devices. When taking a game from desktop to console, it’s not uncommon to just rewrite everything with a more console-friendly engine. I had a few offers for that sort of thing early on but as a hopeless engineer it felt like a waste to ignore Haxe/OpenFL’s inherent multi-platform capabilities.

A few years ago there was no way to build Haxe/OpenFL projects for consoles but with a little time, money, the hard work of James Gray, Lars Doucet from Fortress of Doors, OpenFL’s Joshua Granick, Nilsen Filc, and the generous contribution of WayForward’s engine tech, we were able to create a console target for Haxe/OpenFL. One of our goals with all that extra work is to hopefully benefit other games in a similar situation.

The Destination, Finally

This version was a long time coming and I appreciate your patience. Thank you to all the fans of the game that have encouraged me over the years and I hope you enjoy playing it on PS Vita too.

Glory to Arstotzka.

Discover the Creators: Kodaka Kazutaka

Tue, 12/12/2017 - 16:18

Discover The Creators is a PlayStation Store curation program in which we’ve asked some of the biggest names in the biz to pick their favorite PS4 games in order to help your find your next game to play.

Hello, I’m Kodaka Kazutaka.

I am the game creator and the person in charge of the scenarios for the Danganronpa series.

Lately, I wake up and play games, and play games before I go to bed. My days begin with games and end with games.

On that note, here are my favorite picks for PS4 games.

Life is Strange

Life is Strange

The pure entertainment of walking around in an American school is fun in itself! I’ve seen plenty of American schools in movies and dramas, but those were purely backgrounds in a movie. By being able to walk around the school environment, it made me realize once more how different American schools are structured from Japan. Of course, the story and effects were wonderful. As these types of works that don’t exclusively involve intense action get more popular, I feel that the game genre as a whole has steadily gotten larger. On a tangent, Danganronpa is set inside a school too, but those sorts of schools do not exist in Japan so please don’t misunderstand.

Until Dawn

Until Dawn

Back in the day, there was a genre called “Sound Novels” in Japan. Unlike visual novels, such as Danganronpa for example, these were much simpler. The most renowned entry in this genre is a title called “Banshee’s Last Cry” —a suspense game where the main character starts off stuck in a blizzard on top of a snow-covered mountain. When playing Until Dawn, I felt that this was an evolution of the Sound Novel genre. I would love to make a game like this!

Nier Automata

Nier: Automata

I’ve been a big fan of the Nier series from its previous entries. In my opinion, it’s the most violent and bloody work available, and to think that a game like this has sold so much, it must be the end of this world. We live in such a nice time. The PS3 version, Nier Replicant, portrayed the relationship between siblings, and the Xbox 360 version, Nier Gestalt, described the relationship between father and daughter. The unraveling of these stories always fascinated me.

But since this is a Sony blog I shouldn’t dig much deeper into this topic.

A fun fact, I go out on drinks with the director Yoko Taro a lot, but we always end up losing our memory.

Gravity Rush 2

Gravity Rush 2

In Japan, the release date was very close to Danganronpa V3 and it’s actually a game that I was very conscious about. The directions of the two games are different, but I think that both Danganronpa and Gravity Rush have a very Japanese-like game system. It takes a while to get used to the game, but once you get the hang of it, it feels so good to play. It has a slightly high hurdle, but I believe that you need a little bit of a hurdle for entertainment, this gives a good impression. Another fun fact, I also go drinking with the director, Toyama, but we always end up losing our memories, too.

Everybody's Golf

Everybody’s Golf

This title has been a long running series in the PlayStation lineups, but this was actually the first time I played it. I personally don’t play a lot of games that are heartwarming, but this one I catch myself playing again and again. The detailed character creation is one thing, but whenever I find some free time, I find myself with this game in my hands. What’s intended to be a little break from work ends up being something I find more absorbing than work… it’s such a scary game!

Inside

Inside

Although it’s mentioned everywhere, the artwork for this game is awesome. I think the game does a superb job in conveying the game in 2D and surpasses 3D in its sense of conveying the environment.

Also in regards to storytelling, while playing the game, it stirred my imagination. For example, it made me want to make a visual novel that has absolutely no words. I’m not sure how to make this, but if I can come up with this, I’ll have less work to do, and that will be awesome.

Persona 5

Persona 5

Everyone has been talking about how good this game is, and I, with my warped personality obviously would want to say it’s boring but, unfortunately I can’t find a single thing that’s boring in it. I’m hoping that people will get bored with this game and want something that‘s more exciting so they play Danganronpa, but they don’t seem to be getting bored of the game, which puts me in a fix.

But! I think Danganronpa still wins in the number of people dying in the game.

This game gets me so jealous and worked up that even though I’m supposed to be writing a recommendation on this game I keep writing about Danganronpa.

Head over to PlayStation Store to browse Kodaka-san’s list as well as picks curated by Tim Schafer, Yoko Taro, the team behind Inside, and more.

Ark: Aberration Launches on PS4 Today

Tue, 12/12/2017 - 15:50

Ark: Aberration is launching on PS4 today, and the Studio Wildcard team can’t wait for you to experience the latest chapter of Ark’s gameplay and lore. We have been hard at work building an entirely new world for you to explore and survive in, with fresh challenges and twists on Ark’s core mechanics everywhere you look.

Much of Aberration is a cave world, but from the very beginning of the design phase we strove to create something that could never be described as “just a cave”. Free-floating through space, this Ark has malfunctioned, and beneath the radiation-baked surface there are many new biomes full of plants and animals unlike anything you have seen yet.

 Aberration for PS4

The lush and vibrant Fertile Chamber is the beginning of your journey, where hostile sunlight filters through dense hanging plant-life into something tolerable and life-giving. Exploring the giant, ancient ruins of a technologically advanced civilization will lead you to the Biolum Chamber, home to glowing creatures, beautiful plants and stunning underground waterfalls. Along the way, you’ll want to tame a “Lantern Pet” or two, who can protect you from some of the stranger and more aggressive lifeforms using their organic “Charge” emitting properties (you’ll need it and have more ways to use it later).

Venturing deeper down into the Element Chamber, you’ll learn more about the Ark’s dark secrets and gain access to valuable resources – but watch out! Truly terrifying creatures inhabit the Element Chamber, such as chest-impregnating “Reaper” Queens and scores of swarming “Nameless”, whose grotesque humanoid appearance is nothing short of unnerving and a little too familiar.

 Aberration for PS4

 Aberration for PS4 Aberration for PS4

You’ll need to get crafty with tons of new items to help you traverse the terrain, including ziplines, glide suits, and climbing picks, along with new weapons and outfits to keep you safe from hazards such as earthquakes, radiation zones, poison plants, noxious gas and an erratic day cycle. Make it through, however, and you’ll discover a deep trench that is home to the Rock Drake – one of Ark’s most unique and powerful creatures to date! Possessing the ability to climb nearly anything, glide long distances, and cloak itself and its riders at will, Rock Drakes are one of the keys to survival.

Aberration is Ark’s second huge Expansion, and we’re taking the lore further than ever before. What are the Arks? Why are we here? Where is all of this advanced technology coming from? What does it mean to be human, and where does the story go from here? Explorer Notes scattered around the Ark from old and new characters provide some answers, and the environment and end game bring it all to life.

 Aberration for PS4

As always, the Studio Wildcard team is never content with creating “just more of the same” content. Expect something new, different, and exciting at every turn, like the first time you woke up on the beaches of The Island or the desert of Scorched Earth. Whether you prefer to play solo, co-op or online PvP and PvE, if you play Ark, this Expansion is for YOU.

See you on the Ark, Survivors!

Grand Theft Auto Online: The Doomsday Heist Out Now on PS4

Tue, 12/12/2017 - 15:27

When the stakes are this high, who else can you trust to save the day but the craziest criminals ever to grace the Los Santos underworld? The risks are colossal, the enemies all but unstoppable… but the rewards are mouth-watering and a massive adrenaline spike is absolutely guaranteed. Assemble your crew for the biggest Online adventure yet, across 3 sprawling acts – The Doomsday Heist is now available to play in GTA Online on PlayStation 4.

The Doomsday Scenario

Billionaire entrepreneur Avon Hertz and his pet neural network Cliffford have stumbled upon evidence that nefarious outside forces are working on a plan so diabolical it could end life as we know it. Somehow, Lester Crest is tasked with assembling a team deadly enough – and crazy enough – to do what it takes to bring them down. That’s where you come in. It’s going to take some luck, some firepower and some serious teamwork to take this threat head-on, assisted by Avon’s access to the latest in lethal blue-sky tactical hardware.

 The Doomsday Heist

The Weird Turn Pro

It’s time to assemble your Organization or Motorcycle Club and prepare for a new kind of war. First, one member of your crew needs to own one of the previously undisclosed IAA facility hidden under Southern San Andreas, giving you access to the new advanced planning room where you will map out the steps to launch and complete each mission. This time, operations will run a little differently: crews of 2-4 players will now be able to work together to complete every mission.

 The Doomsday Heist

Bigger, Deadlier and More Complex than Ever

Each of the three massive Heist acts that comprises the story of The Doomsday Heist involves negotiating multiple ruthless freemode prep missions, tactical setup operations, and experimental weapons and vehicles – each ending with an over-the-top finale that brings a payoff big enough to comfortably share with your fellow crew members. Some missions may involve competition for resources with other crews in Freemode, and MC Presidents can even enlist additional club members, boosting your squad to up to 8 players to help secure your objective in these missions.

 The Doomsday Heist

A New Set of Tools

If you’ve been drafted to prevent the end of the world, you better have access to the finest technology available. MKII upgrades are now available via the Mobile Operations Center or Avenger’s Weapon Workshop for the Pump Shotgun, Special Carbine, Marksman Rifle, Heavy Revolver, Bullpup Rifle and SNS Pistol.
The Doomsday Heist also brings access to the ultimate in offensive weaponry: from the futuristic fury of the Khanjali tank, to the long-awaited madness of the Mammoth Thruster personal jetpack, you’ll have everything you need to bring down a small army.

 The Doomsday Heist

Speaking of small armies, purchase of the Facility includes the optional ability to have your own Strike Team on call, or an Orbital Cannon capable of immolating any patch of ground that incurs your wrath. Slow to arm and reload but devastating when deployed tactically – at the moment a gang of rivals is clustered on the same area of the map, for instance – the Orbital Cannon is less a weapon of last resort and more the ultimate revenge, served ice cold.

The Avenger

So you’re an aspiring criminal and you and your crew have been tasked with staving off an existential threat, but you need just the right vehicle. How about a vertical take-off, turreted, flying fortress/experimental weapons lab in the sky/death-spitting collateral damage producer that practically flies itself? The Avenger is all these things and more. Store it in your Facility, get it fitted out with a Vehicle Mod Shop, a Weapon Workshop, and a suite of ferocious weapon upgrades, and you’ll soon be wreaking a whole new level of havoc without ever having to land.

 The Doomsday Heist

Return of The Mastermind Challenge

The Doomsday Heist offers a new set of brutal challenges, all with some serious financial payback for any teams hardcore enough to complete them. All three finale missions have Elite Challenge objectives for those in search of a seriously high bar, and for the perfectionists, the Criminal Mastermind challenges are back across all three acts of the heist for teams of 2, 3 or 4 players along with a brand new suite of trophies.

 The Doomsday Heist

New Vehiceles, Weapon Customizations and More

And we’ve barely scratched the surface – discover dozens of new vehicles, new weapons, new clothing and personal customization options, as well as a surprise new radio station just in time for your fight to save the world. It’s all available to play now, free inside the world of GTA Online – with much more still to come.

The Getaway Turns 15: A Look Back With the Team Behind the PS2 Hit

Tue, 12/12/2017 - 14:53

“Morning, sunshine. Good to see ya again. We’re going to play a little game…”

When is a movie more than a movie? That was the question posed back in 2002 when an intense, memorable live-action promo helped pioneering open-world crime saga The Getaway jostle its way onto PlayStation 2. Sure, the popularity of the British gangster movie had been reinvigorated by Guy Ritchie’s Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels but that kind of widescreen Cockney swagger was very new to the world of video games.

Whereas Hollywood-grade production values are taken for granted in AAA video game development today, that gruff two minute promo was a revelation, promising an all-action, open-world London, recreated on your TV screen thanks to the power of PS2.

So, it only seems fitting that we celebrate The Getaway’s 15th anniversary with a few of the original developers from what was Team Soho (now Sony London Studio) to get beneath the gritty fingernails of a PlayStation classic…

London calling

“I’m not sure any of us actually knew what we were getting ourselves into,” remembers Gavin Moore, The Getaway’s Director of Animation (now Creative Director at Sony Japan Studio). It’s easy to see why – before it became a massive, photorealistic game map taking in 10 square miles of London, The Getaway started off as a spiritual successor to PS one hit Porsche Challenge.

Merging that game’s open-world driving concept with The Italian Job-inspired gameplay (nicknamed “Minis in a Field”), the core idea took shape.

“It was a mission-based game where you were a getaway driver for hire on different robberies around the world,” explains Gavin. “Brendan McNamara, head of the studio, saw the potential of a massive, narrative-driven open world on PlayStation 2 and suddenly a small heist/getaway driver game became a giant gangster action movie where the real star was the city it was set in, London.”

The Getaway

The Getaway

“Hang on lads, I’ve got a great idea…”

As the team expanded to over 60 people, so did the technology required to fulfil their ideas.

“We didn’t want to break the recreation of London into areas and impose loading times,” says Gavin. “We wanted the player to remain immersed in the game. But there was no hard drive on the PS2 and no way to load the whole city into memory.

“So the engine was completely rewritten to stream geometry and textures of areas that the player was close to, which was ground-breaking at the time. To load and stream the data that fast put a lot of pressure on the PS2 disc drive, so the data for the city was burnt onto the disc in sequential order to reduce the strain.”

The Getaway

Similarly, the game was also one of the few titles at the time to favor a minimalist on-screen user interface. There was no visible health bar, ammo counter or map, meaning you had to pay careful attention to subtle cues like the blinking indicators on the back of the car to guide you to your destination.

“I loved the opening and how you transitioned straight from intro to gameplay,” says Will Burdon, Technical Director (now at Sony London Studio). “This wasn’t a typical game with loads of cluttered graphics on the screen. It just felt very cinematic from start to finish – it was hard work, but ultimately very rewarding.”

When black suits meet blue uniforms

There were long nights involved to make the action adventure look and feel the part, but there were also plenty of memorable moments during its development. It was the first time any game studio had done full face, body and voice motion capture of seven actors at once and Gavin remembers some of the more comedic elements of being part of such a new set up.

The GetawayActor and model Anna Edwards, as female assassin for hire Yasmin

“All of the actors who played the gangsters in the game were big men,” he recounts. “But I used to have a good laugh – in secret, of course – watching them in the motion capture studio acting out intense, often violent scenes, with a lot of colorful language… dressed in these skin tight, black suits.”

And then there were the jokes that came with the live action commercial, which was given a VIP movie-style premiere at Leicester Square’s Odeon cinema.

“I was dressed as a police woman and riding around in one of the stunt cars in-between takes on London Bridge,” recalls animator Tara Saunders, now Head of Studio Operations at London Studio.

“We pulled alongside a van driver who was drinking from a soft drink bottle and shouted ‘you shouldn’t drink and drive’. The van driver looked at me in uniform and gushed ‘I’m really sorry ma’am, I won’t do it again’. Then we sped off with blue lights to do the chase sequence!”

A London landmark played across the world

The Getaway went on to become one of PlayStation 2’s biggest and most popular games, its slick cinematic style influencing the third-person action adventure genre in the following years, although very few titles attempted to ape its London-based flavour.

The Getaway

In fact, it was the same team that ended up carrying the torch for the gaming-based Cockney capers that came after, creating the commercially successful PS2 sequel, The Getaway: Black Monday in 2004, and its PSP spin-off Gangs of London in 2006.

15 years on from its launch, The Getaway and its team still casts ripples throughout the games industry, with key members of its staff delivering acclaimed games such as Puppeteer (Gavin Moore) and L.A. Noire (Brendan McNamara), while Designer Dominic Robilliard is now Creative Director on highly anticipated PS4 exclusive Concrete Genie, recently unveiled during Paris Games Week.

Not only that, but both Will and Tara are working on the action-packed PlayStation VR exclusive, Blood & Truth, which looks to recapture the same London crime thriller feel of its PS2 forbearer.

It’s been emotional

Given its legacy, it’s easy to see why The Getaway still has a faithful following, especially amongst those that spent years of their lives working on it.

The Getaway

“The Getaway was my first project and also still one of the largest and most successful franchises I’ve worked on so it will always hold a special place in my heart,” says Tara.

“For me personally, still being part of the studio after 15 years and seeing us return to some of our London crime scene roots with Blood & Truth is very exciting! It’s incredible watching the action narrative genre be re-invented for virtual reality.”

The Getaway

“It was my first big project,” recollects Will. “It seems strange today with how far games have come along in 15 years, but for its time The Getaway was very cutting edge.

“As the development process for Blood & Truth shapes up, everything that comes with the experience of making a game of this scale – the anticipation, the energy – reminds me of my Getaway days. Its spirit definitely lives on in PSVR.”

“I’m very proud of the Getaway and what we achieved at the time,” says Gavin. “Even though the process of creating the game was long and hard, I look back on those times with great fondness.

The Getaway

“In London Studio, if your game sells a million copies you get a plaque with a platinum disc. I brought mine to Japan and it’s hanging in my house in Tokyo. It’s a good reminder of my roots and that however impossible the task looks, you can make it happen. Happy 15th anniversary to everyone who worked on The Getaway!”

6 things you didn’t know about The Getaway
  1. The team took over 500,000 reference images to capture London streets and locations used in the game. The large scale led to one of the team’s artists being banned from local planning offices, as he spent too much time looking at reference material.
  2. The grooves on the back of The Getaway disc are a digital map of London.
  3. Some of the art team were chased by club bouncers whilst on a reference photoshoot around Soho.
  4. There’s a secret first-person drive mode in the game involving Free Roam mode, a pink shop front, Charing Cross Road and a very tight time limit – can you figure it out?
  5. The character Eyebrows was played by Paul ‘Fish’ Burfoot, who has a successful hair product company based in London’s Soho neighbourhood. Other actors in the game went on to star in both Hollywood and Bollywood movies.
  6. The Getaway was the 100,000,000th disc to go through Sony’s DADC (Digital Audio Disc Corporation) supply chain – a big milestone for the company.

The Importance of Animation in Tennis World Tour

Sun, 12/10/2017 - 20:26

Breakpoint was created a little over a year ago, with the goal of creating a studio specializing in developing sports simulations, particularly tennis simulations… hence the name!

This dedicated structure was built around talents who had worked on the Top Spin licence, starting with its director and founder. By the way, our director was the associate of the director of PAM, who created the licence.

In addition to the company’s director, we have notably worked with Pierre André, who presided over Top Spin 3 and 4 as Lead Game Designer, as well as Jan Zamecnik, who was the Lead Animator on Top Spin 4. The rest of the team is made up of industry veterans, who all share a similar passion for the sport.

Several factors pushed us to work on a new tennis game. There hasn’t been a game like this for a long time, and so there’s a big expectation from the fans. Additionally, current generation consoles are more powerful, which allows us to offer the players many new things, especially in terms of gameplay. And finally, the chance to work with a publisher like Bigben who wants to get involved in the creation of various sports games is a great opportunity.

One of the key aspects of the game which we paid particular attention to is the creation of animations for the tennis players. A tennis match is a very specific choreography of movement: player movements, inertia from running, the different strokes with which you can hit the ball… Reproducing animations that are as close as possible to reality was a huge undertaking, which required numerous steps on the way.

Once we defined the strokes, the movements, and the effects that we wanted to add to the game, we moved on to an important analysis phase where we deconstructed all the movements we needed to reproduce using videos of professionals: what are the different movements to hit the ball in every direction, how high do you need to raise your shot, how much power do you need to put in every shot… It is tantamount to thousands of movement combinations to recreate. Each operation must be listed and referenced for one of the key steps of our work: the motion capture phase.

Tennis World Tour PSX

We did these motion capture sessions with professional players on real courts so that they could reproduce as faithfully as possible all the movements and sensations of tennis. Each movement is played and saved, in order to be integrated in the game. We’ve also given a lot of thought to how to deconstruct the animations so that they can be chained one after the other.

Each movement is progressively integrated and tested in order to see if it corresponds well with the game mechanics. It was a long, drawn-out part of the development, because the more animations we integrated, the more the possibilities multiplied. A new motion capture phase is planned, in order to complete all of the different moves already available. Some of them are very rare, such as the between the legs shot but we know that with this kind of movement, players will be able to really deep dive into the tennis experience we want to offer.

It’s a progressive project, which takes a lot of back and forth. We’re already very happy with the results, but we still have some adjustments to make, for example with the physics controlling clothing and hair. We have room to improve the animations and we correct everything by hand to ensure the final quality of the game in the end. Our goal is to obtain a result that will give players an experience close to what they see during professional matches.

We want Tennis World Tour to meet all the players’ expectations and fill the void that’s been left in tennis games for the last six years. We’re passionate about it, and it’s a real opportunity for us to work on such a fun and demanding game. We hope that tennis fans and players in general will be as excited to play the game as we are to work on it day after day.

Golem: The Power of Your Dreams

Sun, 12/10/2017 - 00:45

There are two ways to approach game development, especially for VR. You can do a survey of what exists and iterate on a proven concept; ramping up the dramatic stakes or rendering better-looking graphics or intensifying the combat. Or you can imagine what should exist – we all have hopes and expectations for what VR will be one day – and see how close you can get. Well, we didn’t name the studio Highwire because we wanted to take the safer path…

Golem at PSX 2017

So, what do we want from virtual reality? One of the most powerful VR experiences is the human connection we feel to virtual characters. When a well-realized character looks you in the eye for the first time, it is as breath-taking as any traditional action scene. In Golem we focused on telling a very personal story about an injured child learning to explore the world through her magical gifts, with help from her fearless older sister and their over-protective father. With talented actors and MocapNow’s cutting-edge performance capture techniques, we have tried to bring this family and their struggles to life with subtlety and nuance that would not work outside of VR.

Golem at PSX 2017

Locomotion is a complex problem for VR games, but what we all want is to smoothly and freely explore virtual worlds. So rather than reverting to an analog stick or artificially teleporting through space, we’ve developed an entirely unique way of moving through the world. We call it “Incline Control” and it allows you to move as you would naturally, by slightly leaning your body as if you were about to take a step and start walking. The result is an intuitive control scheme, one that gets out of the way and lets you immerse yourself in the world. Once you master it, you can move effortlessly through the abandoned ruins of the Endless City, exploring the large open environment full of mysteries, hidden shortcuts and dangerous enemy golems.

Golem at PSX 2017

The final component of Golem’s gameplay was obvious to anyone that has ever spent any time in VR. As soon as the system is tracking your hand, you want to try and punch someone. And as soon as the game gives you something to swing, you want to swing it at someone. Ideally, the game gives you an 8-foot broadsword with a razor-sharp edge. One-to-one melee combat has always been core to Golem’s gameplay, and it is really only possible in VR. Unlike a traditional game, where each swing is controlled by an animation and blocking is as simple as holding a button, in Golem every attack and parry is under the player’s direct control. If they don’t manage to get their sword above their head in time, they won’t block that overhead smash. And if they miss a cut at an exposed limb, it won’t do any damage. It takes practice, but landing a successful counter-attack is incredibly satisfying.

Golem has been a challenging and rewarding project for us, and we’re happy to announce that it will be available March 13th exclusively on PSVR. We hope you enjoy playing it as much as we have enjoyed making it! And in the meantime, check out the musical prequel to Golem from award-winning composer Marty O’Donnell at “Echoes of the First Dreamer”.

Killing Floor: Incursion Heading to PS VR

Sun, 12/10/2017 - 00:30

Last November PlayStation 4 fans got their first taste of Tripwire’s seminal co-op action sci-fi horror shooter franchise with Killing Floor 2. It’s been wonderful for the team at Tripwire to see how well the game has been received by the millions of PlayStation gamers that have picked up the game since launch. Three years ago, we announced that game at PSX, and we’re excited to be back again this year to announce our next game for PlayStation 4 – Killing Floor: Incursion for PlayStation VR!

The first thing to know about Killing Floor: Incursion is that it was created from the ground up for virtual reality. We believe the best VR games are made specifically with the VR platform in mind, so we set out to create something that was unique and truly played to VR’s strengths. Scale and heights can be incredibly powerful tools to elicit emotion from a player in VR and Incursion uses both to great effect. The player may find themselves standing in front of something gigantic, or standing on a high ledge. These dramatic moments can only be experienced in VR and are exciting and memorable.

Next players should know that Incursion is a very tactile game – the player uses both hands to physically manipulate items in the world, to swing axes and knives, and to duel wield weapons like the star of your own action movie. The gunplay was designed from the ground up to be the most immersive and rewarding shooting experience players have ever experienced in VR. Features such as a procedural recoil animation system allowed us to model all the power and nuance of firearms while keep the action fluid without breaking the sense of presence a player only gets in VR.

Killing Floor: Incursion includes a full story based campaign with four to six hours of gameplay. The campaign takes the player through diverse environments fighting through a cast of mutated creatures that range from shambling zombie-like monsters to massive biomechanical abominations. Keeping the player company on this journey is NODE, a helpful robot companion that not only shares transmissions from the outside world, but also can be ordered by the player to hunt out ammo, health and more.

A large part of the fun of Incursion is being able to bring a friend to fight alongside you in co-op. As we were developing Incursion one of the surprising things we discovered was just how connected you feel to the other person you are playing with in VR. So much more than in a standard shooter, in VR you truly feel like you are standing next to the other player. You can hear their voice, but also you see every nuance of their movement. Players can literally point at things with their hands, and toss each other weapons (or detached monster parts…). This is great because the story-based campaign and the new Holdout game mode can both be played solo or in co-op.

Holdout is an endless game mode where the goal is to survive as long as you can against an ongoing onslaught of enemies. As the match progresses more powerful weapons appear, but more powerful mutated creatures appear as well. Leaderboards show the world if you have survived the longest. As a special bonus for PlayStation VR players, the game will include an all new Holdout mode level to battle the zed hordes in!

Tripwire can’t wait to unleash Killing Floor: Incursion for PlayStation VR. So get those virtual axes sharpened, because Incursion is coming for you in 2018.

Introducing Call of Duty: WWII MLG GameBattles Tournaments, Now Live on PS4

Sat, 12/09/2017 - 16:00

Competitive players, we’ve got a major update for you. For the first time, Call of Duty: WWII players in the Americas and select Asian territories will be able to register for and manage MLG GameBattles tournaments directly from their PS4 start menu beginning today.

Because Call of Duty: WWII’s new update is tightly integrated with MLG GameBattles at the PS4 system level, managing your Call of Duty: WWII qualifying matches and tournaments is easy and seamless.

Starting December 10, we will be opening registration for the first wave of Call of Duty: WWII competitive events. Starting events will be a mix of classic 2v2 to 6v6 Call of Duty competitive game types including, Hardpoint, Search and Destroy and Call of Duty World League events.

To bring this awesome new feature to our fans, we worked hand in hand with teams at Activision, Sledgehammer Games, High Moon, and MLG to craft a world-class tournament system for Call of Duty. The new platform and title-level integration for MLG GameBattles and Call of Duty: WWII makes jumping into competitive gameplay simple and fast whether you are new to esports or a seasoned veteran. Let’s look at some of the features that we have built for you.

System-Level Teams

Through the PS4 Events and Tournaments platform, you can now create and manage teams of up to 100 members including your friends, family, and favorite players on PlayStation Network. Once you setup your team, registering and participating in any of the featured Call of Duty: WWII events is as quick as a few button presses. Included in your team setup is team-specific chat, unique banners and logos, and complete tracking of your gameplay history and events you and your team have participated in.

Direct Integration into Call of Duty: WWII

Once you have chosen an event, registered, and checked-in, getting into gameplay is completely automated. Call of Duty: WWII and the Tournaments platform will automatically match your team with your opponent, setup the match types (including map rotation, rule set, etc.), and place you directly into the game lobby after you click “Join Match” from the PlayStation Tournaments section or directly within Call of Duty: WWII’s menu screen.

But what about when the match is over you ask? Again, the integration work done between our development teams ensures that your results are automatically reported, verified, and finalized without ever having to enter the results. This makes moving to your next match (Hopefully you won!) smooth, quick, and accurate, with no manual input or verification needed.

Along with this comes integration directly into the Call of Duty: WWII menus from the teams at Sledgehammer Games and High Moon. Here you can find tournaments, see the events you have upcoming, and join any of your matches that are about to start.

 Tournaments on PS4

 Tournaments on PS4 Tournaments on PS4

As you can see, the teams at Activision and PlayStation are committed to offering the best place to compete in Call of Duty tournaments. Whether you want to climb the ranks to a CWL pro, or just enjoy casual competition with fellow Call of Duty: WWII fans, we have built a system that makes it as easy as possible.

So, grab your friends, create your teams, and we’ll see you online!

Sat, 12/09/2017 - 13:00

Though we have repeatedly confirmed that Shadow of the Colossus on PS4 is a full, ground up remake of the all-time classic, it is a fact that is harder to communicate via text or stills. To make it more clear, we have created a comparison video, which you can watch above, that shows the amount of work that has gone into this project to fully leverage the horsepower of modern gaming consoles.

Shadow of the Colossus on PS4

Lastly, we are also proud to reveal a Special Edition release, which will include the following bonus items: Steelbook Collector’s Case with outer sleeve, Artist Postcards, Printed Manual, In-game Digital Extras (Ancient Bow, Cloak of Fate, “Spotted Steed” Agro skin), Two Custom PS4 Themes, Colossi Avatar Set for PS4, Physical World Map, and Colossi Stickers.

 Special Edition

Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is Coming to PS VR in 2018

Sat, 12/09/2017 - 05:51

Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is a great way to question your self worth, and we’re excited to give PlayStation VR owners the chance to do just that in 2018 when Virtual Rick-ality comes to PS VR.

Rick and Morty - Virtual Rick-ality
 
Virtual Rick-ality is a fully-voiced VR game featuring Rick, Morty, and oodles of iconic stuff from the TV show. In the game, you play as a Morty clone on a journey that’ll take you across multiple dimensions and to places like Purgatory and even the Smiths’ bathroom. Along the way, you’ll solve puzzles and experience a great Rick and Morty story.
 
One of our favorite things to talk about is the sheer amount of stuff you can do in Virtual Rick-ality. To name a few:
 

  • You can listen to Rick’s instructions (or, don’t!).
  • Walk through portals into space. Or other dimensions.
  • Flip knobs. Press buttons. Wear hats. Throw and break stuff. Drink detergent.
  • Combine objects in the Combinator to make new objects.
  • Control your own Youseeks. Make him explode.
  • Experience death.
  • Raise a pet. Feed a monster. Eat fruits and vegetables.
  • Learn how to fix an intergalactic car.

 
And you can do all of that without leaving the comfort of your PS VR in your living room. Or den? Or basement? We don’t know your life. But Virtual Rick-ality is the most immersive way to get into the world of Rick and Morty.

Rick and Morty - Virtual Rick-ality
 
If you’d like to get your hands on the PS VR version before 2018, your first chance will be at PlayStation Experience! We’ll be there with a few stations offering demos. Come check it out! Wubba Lubba dub dub!

MediEvil Returning to PS4 in 2018

Sat, 12/09/2017 - 05:44

That’s another PlayStation Experience in the books! And we’ve been holding onto some especially exciting news. Hot on the heels of this year’s smash hit Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, we’re making another PlayStation fan dream come true: a proper, PS4-grade resurrection of the original MediEvil just in time for the game’s 20th anniversary.

If you’re not familiar with the MediEvil series, it’s a colorful action-adventure game originally released in 1998 for the original PlayStation system. As the resurrected Sir Daniel Fortesque, players defend Gallowmere from the evil forces of Zarok, a sorcerer with the power to control the dead.

The game is noteworthy for its unique horror-comedy tone and its early contributions to the world of 3D gaming. It’s still a fan favorite, and I’m proud we can resurrect Sir Daniel once again.

Have a happy and healthy holidays — see you in 2018!

Jupiter & Mars Announced for PS4 and PlayStation VR

Sat, 12/09/2017 - 05:18

It’s been a while since I’ve been on PS Blog. The last time I was here with an original game it was for Lumines Electronic Symphony on PS Vita, a project I loved working on. What I’m really excited about now and the reason I’m here today is to lift the lid off my labor of love project, called Jupiter & Mars, a game that my former mentor from Q Entertainment, Tetsuya Mizuguchi, once told me “this is the game you were born to make.” Jupiter & Mars is a game set in a near-future Earth that displays one possible outcome originating from the excesses and abuses we inflict on the planet today.

Jupiter and Mars

You see, after moving back from Japan, where I was lucky enough to work at both Q Entertainment and Q-Games (unrelated to each other), I had just had my second child, a son. With two children in my family, I began to have serious concerns about the world they’d be growing up in. Plastics are found in nearly 90% of all the drinking water we consume, which leads to all sorts of health issues. We’re polluting our oceans at a prodigious rate that is unsustainable, and it’s possible that future wars will be ignited by a power-grab for the Earth’s remaining resources. I don’t know about you, but this isn’t the world I want for my children. So I pondered leaving the games industry and moving into conservation-related efforts. But while movies like The Cove and Racing Extinction made me burst into happy/sad tears, the work of legends like David Attenborough inspired me to stay. I thought “What can I possibly do to change things for the better?” The solution, to me and my partner Sam Kennedy (who I used to work with back in the day at places like 1UP and EGM), was not to throw everything I had learned in the past 20 years away, but to take that knowledge and find like-minded collaborators to create games inspired by and, in their own way, designed by nature. We figured if we can entertain people in that special way that video games can, and perhaps inspire them to educate themselves on a topic, then this would be worthwhile.

Jupiter and Mars

Although it can be played on all PS4 consoles, Jupiter & Mars was designed for PlayStation VR. You don’t have to go to an alien planet to feel like you’ve visited one. All you need to do is go underwater, which is an entirely different world, with unique demands and creatures and ways of interacting. We sought to bring this element out in the game, to the point that Sam and I got certified in scuba diving while in Sydney, Australia, so we’d be able to bring that authenticity into the game.

While Jupiter & Mars setting is inspired by real-world calamities, its gameplay draws inspiration from many of our past favorites, particularly Ico and The Last Guardian for the bond between their main characters. In the game, you control a dolphin named Jupiter along with your AI-companion Mars on an underwater adventure while you help restore life in the oceans. For those of you familiar with any of the games I’ve worked on in the past, you’ll find plenty of familiar elements represented here, too.

Jupiter and Mars

Our fledgling studio, Tigertron, and the games we make, creates great opportunities to build relationships with and collaborate with some of the greatest talent in the world. We’ll have more announcements in the coming months leading up to the release of Jupiter & Mars, but we’re already working with composers like Jonathan Atkinson, who was a part of the legendary George Martin (The Beatles) production team. We went with Jonathan to London to record our theme song, and the voice that brings it to life is the incredibly talented Nami Miyahara, whose vocals you may recognize from Genki Rockets’ ‘Heavenly Star’ among others. As with everything I work on, music plays an integral, memorable role in the game, and while Jupiter & Mars is not a “music game,” it is musical.

Last but not least, we are working with two great Australian teams to help bring Jupiter & Mars to life: Tantalus and Wicked Witch. It’s been great to work with a bunch of like-minded game creators to help us realize our vision of making games that branch out in new directions. We’re 100% committed to creating awesome games inspired by nature, so we may give back to nature, and will do so by donating a portion of our proceeds to organizations dedicated to preserving the planet for future generations to come. Just like my kids.

Jupiter & Mars will release in Q2, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR.
