Under Siege: Now Available on PSN

Filipe Pina's Avatar Posted by Producer, Under Siege

Our little big game is now on sale on the PlayStation Store! Under Siege is an action and strategy game in real time, where a small group of heroes fight against a huge invading army. We developed Under Siege to be played with the DualShock 3 controller and it also supports the PlayStation Move motion controller. We also boost lots of cool features like video recording, custom music, and video chat. The game even runs in full 1080p in Dolby Digital 5.1.

Under Siege is now available for $19.99 ($10.00 for PlayStation Plus users) and suppers six languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. It includes a full campaign, two-player multiplayer online and local play, and the same Editor used by us to create the game itself.

The Editor is one of the most important features we put in Under Siege. We started production on it before making the game so we that made sure our level designers created everything directly on a PS3 with a DualShock 3. This way, it was possible to keep on upgrading and improving the features and usability while the game was being made.

Currently the Editor has many tools that enable varied things such as:

  • Sculpting and painting the terrain
  • Adding water to create rivers and lakes
  • Changing lighting intensity, colour, position and other effects
  • Placing and rotating props like trees, houses, walls and more
  • Placing units and determine their AI, line of sight, colour and team
  • Creating cutscenes with your own lines of text and many different characters
  • Above all, creating your own logic with a simple trigger system that allows for the creation of new types of levels, modes and even totally different gameplay.

We also included a Manual that is accessible at all times. To make it easier for everyone to use we are making it available as a PDF. You can download it or print it in PDF form, either the pretty version or a printer-friendly version.

The team is also putting together some video tutorials that will help out in creating content.
Talk to us in our forums, and get more information at the official website. Check out the free comic book while you’re at it!

See you online!

Looks like a great game, thanks for the update! One question though, when will Outland be available? I’m guessing June 7th.

I already bought this game the first day it came out and i must say guys, it’s a very good game that requires actually alot of strategy.

can u give us a update for call of duty MAP PACK

Jeigh said:

My little brother was just looking at this not more than a couple hours ago and I was telling him, “Yeah, it looks pretty fun to me.” I seem to remember this being shown off at a convention at one point using the Move and I thought the same thing then too.

I’m not sure but I think you’ve got a sale here. (The $10 discount *on top* of the the Move support makes it ESPECIALLY likely, so whether it’s sooner or later, if he doesn’t, I will.)

Long story short, you guys rock. Thanks for doing something different. =)

@8, they already did. It’s coming on Tuesday.

P.S. FPS’s suck.

Kirkpad said:

June 4th, 1:20 pm

Oh, my mistake @8, its June 10th. Guess you have to wait longer for your overpriced DLC that costs more than this game.

Sigh, posting links to other blog posts shouldn’t be moderated.

@Kirkpad not all FPS suck, just Call of Duty. LOL!

I have been super interested in this game, had it in my cart 4x now. Can’t seem to find any reviews… wish a demo was out. I read it has a platinum trophy. Gonna check out your website, maybe that’ll push me over the edge.

Dolby Digital? this isn’t an xbox! are the audio assets 24-bit and/or losslessly compressed? will they output at LPCM over HDMI to avoid an encode/decode cycle?

are there any videos that include actual gameplay? I don’t see how the other commenters can say “it looks fun” when there’s only a CG trailer.

definitely gonna wait for a demo..

zartemie said:

June 4th, 1:27 pm

yes escalation on the 10th

Check Under Siege at Metacritic for review scores.
No demo planned guys.

BornToAvenge said:

June 4th, 1:36 pm

Looks awesome.. I might buy it =]

AddisonW said:

June 4th, 1:37 pm

Picked this up after seeing many threads of people raving about the game.

It is absolutely gorgeous. The gameplay is easy to get into but very deep and challenging later on.

Absolute steal for 10 dollars thanks to the awesome PS+ discount.

And, lol, at the lamers crying about map packs for their kiddie Call of Doody fps game with Wii level graphics.

KillerForFood said:

June 4th, 1:37 pm

To #8 – truekiler1234567

Escalation will be out on the PSN on the 10th of june.(this Friday)
Hopefully, you are as excited as i am for it!!

DarkGulen said:

June 4th, 1:40 pm

@AddisonW LOL! You said “doody”.

KillerForFood said:

June 4th, 1:42 pm

people who hate on call of duty black ops are the people that have it, but get whooped by me online. :P

fijski8 said:

June 4th, 1:49 pm

Thanks for the reply Mr.Pina. Checked out the reviews.

AddisonW said:

June 4th, 1:52 pm

LOL!

Did you just try brag about your ‘mad skillz’ in a kiddie fps game with massive auto aim so all the lamerz like you can actually hit stuff?

zekececil14 said:

June 4th, 1:53 pm

On another note, the U.S. will hit 1 000 000 000 kills in Dead Nation today. We were the first to hit 100 000 000 and now 1 000 000 000. The second highest is held by Germany at 212 000 000.

Sadly we are second in the virus cycle to Japan who only has 13 000 000 kills. I wish I knew how the virus cycle is calculated.

Get out there and kills some zombies. Your nation needs you. You can do this by buying Dead Nation; which is free with the welcome back package.

That looks awesome! Strategy isn’t really my favorite genre, but I might just give this a try.

KillerForFood said:

June 4th, 1:57 pm

To AddisonW
You just proved my point.
you probably quit playing black ops cause you hate me owning you, and switched to a game more suited to your audience such as littlebigplanet.

babyeatermax said:

June 4th, 1:58 pm

Awesome work guys! Time to dust off my move controllers.

a7x_RoCk3r said:

June 4th, 1:58 pm

So…anything you buy in PS plus, won’t be available once it’s PS plus expires..Thanks sony. I know you don’t have to give compensation, but giving out games no one will ever play, besides the fact that they are free is kind of rude..one free thing from the PS store would have been nice..

a7x_RoCk3r said:

June 4th, 1:59 pm

@KillerForFood LOL CoD is for children, and Lag Ops is the worst of the series.

Detective-E said:

June 4th, 2:06 pm

@28

If you purchase something (such as this) with a discount, it’s your to keep forever.

If the items is labeled as “free” then it is NOT yours to keep.

a7x_RoCk3r said:

June 4th, 2:07 pm

Worst..and easiest.

OBAMA_BIN_LATIN said:

June 4th, 2:08 pm

This look goof

a7x_RoCk3r said:

June 4th, 2:08 pm

Thanks Det-E.. I’ll keep that in mind.. ;)

Dragun619 said:

Waited for this game for a long time. Instant buy for $10. Thanks Seed studios.

garbage

seph1r0th00 said:

June 4th, 2:15 pm

Been waiting for this game for a while. I hope the PSN being down doesn’t have a negative effect on this game’s sales. It’s the first thing I downloaded when the PSN came back on. Keep rocking, Seed Studios!

KillerForFood said:

June 4th, 2:17 pm

to a7x_RoCk3r
Call of duty is for people who like to have fun.
Your style of game must be the opposite.
Pointless and redundant.

NinjaNabs said:

June 4th, 2:18 pm

@DarkGulen shut up.

NinjaNabs said:

June 4th, 2:19 pm

anybody knows if there is a demo for red dead redemption?

OnTheBus666 said:

June 4th, 2:28 pm

When will Outland be up?

Link01 said:

June 4th, 2:34 pm

you guys know that there’s a sizing issue with the video excerpt on the front page right?

zekececil14 said:

June 4th, 2:34 pm

@40
the demo is.

Blkant said:

June 4th, 2:42 pm

Already bought the game and I’m just two chapters away from platinuming the game. :) I look forward to what you guys work on next. :)

Easily the best RTS on the PS3 so far.

xzile said:

June 4th, 2:53 pm

@ 13 fijski8 I wrestled with buying this because it peaked my interest. I found a nice video review on youtube. The guy plays it and reviews it. I liked what I saw and pulled the trigger on the purchase. Waiting on the game to finish downloading now. I will try to squeeze time in for this somehow. lol I guess it is better to have too many games to play, than have none at all.

xzile said:

June 4th, 2:56 pm

@ 28. that is not true. If you buy it with PS plus it is yours to keep. If they give you a game free then it expires with your plus subscription.

zech678 said:
