We’re excited to announce that PlayStation is partnering with ESL to introduce Tournaments, a new PS4 feature that will allow players to participate in Tournaments with games that gamers want to play.
We’re kicking off the first Major tournament with NBA 2K17, to celebrate the beginning of the NBA season. The Major Tournament runs from October 27 to November 26, with Major Cup rounds occurring every Saturday. Top 3 winners of the NBA 2K17 Major Tournament will receive a prize pack that includes items such as a DualShock 4 and PlayStation gear.
“A slam-bam, non-stop action game.”
That’s the phrase that we used when we originally presented our first Just Cause game concept and design for the team at Eidos back in 2003. Three years later, Just Cause was released and we are now celebrating a decade of chaos.
With every glimpse of the far-future world of Horizon Zero Dawn that we’re given, the version of Earth that Guerrilla Games is busily creating becomes ever more intriguing. It’s a world where human evolution has been thrown back into a pre-historic era, while simultaneously thrust into a distant future where humans are no longer the dominant species.
Instead, a society of machines has risen up, at once both terrifyingly alien and strikingly familiar, mixing robotic, mechanized power with recognizably natural, organic animal features.
During a recent visit to Guerrilla HQ, we were treated to a behind-the-scenes look at the machines that included a deep-dive into the very real evolution of the Shellwalker and an exclusive reveal of the Snapmaw — a huge, water based machine that bears more than a striking resembles to a giant crocodile.
Nearly two years ago I had the pleasure of announcing that Snow, our free-to-play, open world winter sports game, would be coming to PS4 as a console exclusive. When this announcement was made, we had just launched our PC Alpha and have since been working through a long list of new features and content that we wanted in the game for Snow’s launch on console. We’ve been working together with our incredibly supportive and insightful community to develop the game into the experience we believe best represents the sports and the majesty of the mountain — and we’re nearly there.
So without further ado, I’m proud and excited to announce that on October 25 our massive, open-world mountain will be open to skiers, snowboarders, and snowmobiles in the PS4 Snow Beta!
It was June 2009 and we were running out of money. We’d spent nearly two years making a game called Lux Tenebras. Our idea was to make a Super Mario version of a horror game; something that could be enjoyed in bite-sized chunks, was replayable, and mostly relied on easily repeatable gameplay mechanics.
The problem was, this game wasn’t working out. Despite a lot of time and effort, it never really clicked. A publishing deal had recently evaporated, leaving our funds basically drained. We had at most a month left in our budget, and while we had a lot of assets, we didn’t have a working game. It felt like the company was on the verge of going bankrupt, and I recall starting on my CV.
