playstation-header

Sony’s PlayStation Experience has become a very important date on the annual gaming calendar, and for the last two years, it’s helped thousands of fans preview the year ahead for PlayStation platforms. 2016 doesn’t look to be an exception, as Sony has announced (via the PlayStation Blog) that more than 100 games will be playable on the show floor this year.

Like in years past, demo stations will be available for the biggest hitters in Sony’s first-party lineup (including The Last Guardian, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and Gran Turismo Sport), as well as smaller indies that have built up buzz at previous events like PAX or E3 or Gamescom (such as Flinthook, Graceful Explosion Machine, and Cosmic Star Heroine).

This year, Sony will kick things off with the PlayStation Showcase at 10:00 AM (Pacific Time) on Saturday, December 3. It’ll be followed by a series of secret panels, so we can expect plenty of new announcements to be made in Anaheim this year.

The full list of playable games that will be available at the 2016 PlayStation Experience can be found after the break. (more…)

Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, Amnesia Collection, Batman: Telltale Series – Episode 4, more added to PS Store

Holidays can be scary, but yesterday’s PlayStation Store update will turn the terror up a few notches with the launch of the Amensia Collection for the PS4. The Collection includes all three horror games in the franchise, starting with the original game, Amnesia: The Dark Descent. PS4 players will also get the chance to scream their heads off with the expansion, Amnesia: Justine; and the sequel, Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs.

Speaking of scary… the apocalyptic Darksiders is also available to download for this week. THQ Nordic will re-release the action RPG for the PS4 as Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, and players will get to experience the game with an enhanced 1080p presentation for the first time.

Elsewhere on the PlayStation Store, PlayStation VR owners will be able to step onto a real basketball court this week with NBA 2K VR Experience. The basketball-themed minigame collection includes an appearance by Paul George, and a trio of shooting challenges in virtual reality.

Finally this week, Telltale will continue Batman: The Telltale Series this week with the release of Episode 4: Guardian of Gotham on the PS4 and PS3. Bruce Wayne has gotten himself into some Arkham-related troubles, but maybe The Joker can lend him a helping hand… and a smile.

More information about all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And a full rundown of this week’s new add-ons is available at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

Koei Tecmo will bring Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers to the PS4, Vita in January 2017

Believe it or not, but the next game in the Dynasty Warriors franchise is just two months away. Koei Tecmo has announced that Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers, a tactics-style spinoff from the main series, will be available as a digital download for the PS4 and Vita on January 31, 2017.

Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers will feature a huge number of characters from the franchise’s long history, as well as two new additions to the story: Lixia, “a girl with magical powers that was sealed in an icy shrine for centuries,” and Lei Bin, “Zhao Yun’s childhood friend and avid lore master.”

Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers unfolds during the chaotic end days of the Han dynasty, when ancient China was overwhelmed by uprisings and internal strife within its imperial court. The story follows renowned warrior Zhao Yun and his close friend Lei Bin, who unwittingly liberate a young girl, Lixia, from a mystical prison. The two friends and the mysterious Lixia then find themselves entangled in a pivotal struggle for the salvation of the world, wherein they must navigate the maelstrom that is Three Kingdoms era China, meet countless great warriors and take part in historic battles. In their efforts to unravel the mystery behind Lixia’s imprisonment, Zhao Yun and Lei Bin uncover a hidden, terrible fate, forcing them to make difficult decisions in a battle that will echo throughout history.

To go along with the release date announcement, Koei Tecmo also unveiled a trailer for Dynasty Warriors: Godseekers, and it’s embedded above.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End leads the way at 2016 Game Awards with eight nominations

gameawards-statueWe’re rapidly approaching the end of the year, and that means the 2016 Game Awards are right around the corner. The Game Awards will once again be produced and hosted by Geoff Keighley, who will honor this year’s best games and look to the future with a number of huge World Premieres, including the first gameplay footage from BioWare’s Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Before we blast off to a far away galaxy, let’s stop and recognize Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, which received eight nominations this year from the Game Awards Advisory Board. In addition to “Game of the Year,” Nathan Drake’s final adventure is also up for “Best Game Direction,” “Best Art Direction,” “Best Narrative,” and “Best Action/Adventure Game,” along with a “Best Performance” nomination for all three of the game’s main performers.

Uncharted 4 will compete with some of 2016’s biggest titles for “Game of the Year” at the 2016 Game Awards including Doom, Inside, Overwatch, and Titanfall 2.

“The Game Awards is all about celebrating the state of video game art,” said Keighley. “In just a few short weeks we will recognize the most outstanding games of 2016 in unexpected ways, and preview the most anticipated games of 2017 and beyond with the longest, most in-depth world premieres we’ve ever attempted… including surprises and new game announcements.”

The Game Awards will be held on December 1 at 9:00 PM (Eastern Time), and fans can watch the show through their favorite video streaming service or at TheGameAwards.com. The full list of nominees can be found after the break. (more…)
