Posted by on May 24, 2017

With two weeks to go to until the June 6 launch of Wipeout Omega Collection, we’re stoked to finally reveal the full soundtrack, featuring a mix of Wipeout legends like The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers, plus unreleased tracks from breaking artists.

Electronic dance music has always been part of the DNA of Wipeout and the original games were key in introducing new artists to a worldwide audience. We’ve kept true to that philosophy on Omega – tapping into the wealth of exciting artists out there.

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game Public Beta Out Now on PS4

Posted by on May 24, 2017

Hey there PlayStation.Blog readers! My name is Michał “Luigi” Dobrowolski, and I’m a Senior Game Designer at CD Projekt Red. For more than a year now we’ve been working on our latest title, which I’m here to tell you more about here today.

Gwent started out as a mini-game in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. During your adventure, characters you met along the road would sometimes invite or challenge you to play a friendly game of cards. But what was meant to be a fun addition to the story-driven open-world RPG unexpectedly became the main objective for many players. Following the release of Wild Hunt, we received hundreds of messages from fans asking us to create a standalone, multiplayer version of Gwent so they could play with friends. Some even made their own physical cards and boards. Seeing how passionate people are about Gwent, we decided to answer the call.

5 Things to Try in Portal Knights, Out Today on PS4

Posted by on May 23, 2017

Hi – I’m Antonela, Community Manager here at 505 Games. Today, we’re celebrating the launch of our action RPG sandbox title, Portal Knights, on PlayStation 4.

Portal Knights began as an Early Access project. A title that would be built with our community, for our community. To see our creation now on console is just super exciting for the entire team! We basically started off with a blank canvas. With a vision in mind, we began bringing the idea of Portal Knights to life, applied a layer of paint, then opened our doors to our community to get their feedback and suggestions. Over the last 15 months, we’ve been listening to our players, made changes and added a bunch of awesome new features in response. Now we have a painting to be proud of!

LawBreakers, Boss Key Productions’ First Game, is Coming to PS4 This Year

Posted by on May 22, 2017

Alright, let’s be honest. 10 years ago, who the hell thought I’d be here? Well, here I am writing a guest column on the PlayStation Blog.

So yep – I’m back on console, and it’s pretty awesome TBH. PS4 is a new audience for my studio and me (although many people who work with me have shipped PlayStation exclusive titles before). Fun fact: my COO and colleague Arjan Brussee helped found Guerrilla Games. We also made the original Jazz Jackrabbit together, like a bazillion years ago. Small industry. Don’t be a jerk.
