2018 has been a banner year for Worldwide Studios, with great games like God of War, Astro Bot Rescue Mission, and MLB: The Show, as well as other PS4-exclusive games — each of which demonstrate what makes PlayStation the best place to play.
But the Worldwide Studios team is hard at work. We wanted to give you a status check on the next wave of innovative experiences from our studios in Bend, OR; Tokyo; San Mateo, CA; London; and more. Each title is as varied as its hometown!
What a week! This past Monday saw PlayStation’s Media Showcase divulge a mountain of new game reveals, updates, and other announcements.
Because there was so much to take in, I wanted to offer a “cheat sheet” of the very biggest trailers from the show. If you want an even more comprehensive list of all announcements, see our roundup post here.
What was your favorite trailer?
Hi there, my name is Dominic Robilliard and I am the Creative Director of a small team at PlayStation called Pixelopus. It’s been a while since my last post — that’s because we’ve been away working hard on our second game: Concrete Genie. It’s an action adventure game about a boy called Ash who discovers he can bring his paintings to life.
As you might expect, given that our hero is an artist, a lot of the gameplay in Concrete Genie is about having fun with paint. Using DualShock 4’s motion sensor, you can effortlessly create stunning landscapes that come to life and even make your own cast of unique creatures to hang out and play with. Our goal is for anyone to be able to paint in this game. The paint strokes you make on the walls will turn into beautiful, living artwork.
