Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky has been receiving quite a bit of hype ever since it was announced due to its unique gameplay and visuals. In the game you have the ability to explore the near-infinite bounds of space, with each planet being unique from the last.
Every game has to have a limit, right? Well, sort of. In an interview with IGN, Hello Studios’ co-founder Sean Murray said that it would take approximately 5 billion years to see everything in the game.
Yup, that’s a pretty long time.
No Man’s Sky is being developed for the PlayStation 4 and PC and is set to be released sometime next year.
Sony innocently enough released a demo for a horror game called P.T. at Gamescom, with many just assuming it was another horror game in a recent slew of horror games.
Well, they were wrong. Upon completion of the demo, it is revealed that P.T. is actually a new entry in the Silent Hill series called Silent Hills that is being developed by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro, with actor Norman Reedus being the protagonist.
There aren’t any other details about the game yet, but you better believe more will be coming very soon. This is huge news, as Hideo Kojima is one of the most acclaimed developers in video games today and i’m beyond excited to see what he brings to the series. Check out the teaser for Silent Hills below. [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mE0JDQJFbTw’%5D
The poor PlayStation Vita. It doesn’t have many games, and the one shining gem that it does have is now being redesigned for PlayStation 4. That’s right, Tearaway is coming to the PlayStation 4 and is waving bye-bye to the sad and neglected Vita.
The game utilizes the PlayStation 4’s touch pad for various gameplay mechanics and to traverse through the game’s incredibly imaginative and vivid world. It’s from the creators of LittleBIGPlanet known as Media Molecule, so any charm contained within is entirely expected.
Another promising indie game was revealed at Sony’s Gamescom event, with this one being from Michel Ancel. The game is called WiLD and is being developed by his new indie studio exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
The video shows off a sort of fantasy-survival setting set in ancient times when hunters & gatherers lived. According to the video’s description, it is an online survival adventure game devoted to the wilderness that is set 10,000 years ago when humanity and nature were one.
At Sony’s Gamescom event, a new indie game from developer Housemarque was revealed to be coming out for the PlayStation 4. The game is a top down shooter called Alienation that is similar to Dead Nation, but this game features aliens instead of zombies. There’s a heck of a lot of action going on in this thing, and it looks like there’s plenty of different ways you can go about surviving.
The PC slice ’em up game Shadow Warrior came out last year and provided mild amounts of entertainment for all parties involved, but now we know exactly when that same games (with some extras) will be coming to consoles. Developer Devolver Digital has revealed that Shadow Warrior will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 23rd.
As mentioned previously, the console versions of Shadow Warrior will have a few new bells and whistles; including the Arena mode, more campaign content and all-new weapons.
Although a price hasn’t officially been revealed, Devolver Digital has gone on record saying that they are aiming for a $39.99 price tag.
Warner Bros. Interactive has revealed that Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has moved up a week, making it yet another game that is sneaking out of the over-crowded month of October.
The game was originally set to release on October 7th, but now it is hitting North America on September 30th. The game will then be released on PC and Steam on October 2nd.
WB claims that the release was moved up due to fans excitement, but I think it’s pretty obvious that October 7th was simply too crowded of a release date. The date still hols NBA 2k15, DriveClub and Alien: Isolation, with Dragon Age: Inquisition recently being pushed back to November from its original October 7th release date.
