Following Russell Adler’s extraction by Frank Woods, things aren’t looking good for Perseus. CIA satellites are interfering with their broadcasts, inhibiting their plan to control over 100 million test subjects in Verdansk. But all is not lost, as Perseus launches its next major attack: de-orbiting and crashing down those satellites, paving the way again for Perseus’s path to sow discord across the world.

Season Four of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Warzone arrives on PlayStation on June 17. Here are the highlights:

Welcome to the world of Babylon’s Fall

Greetings, Sentinels! Clem here from the Babylon’s Fall community team. It’s been a while since we showed the game, so I hope you enjoyed the new trailer we just revealed at E3!

If you haven’t seen it yet – we’ve got you covered!

Welcome to the world of Babylon’s Fall

Launching on PS5 and PS4, Babylon’s Fall is an online co-op action RPG set in a high fantasy world that lets you fight powerful enemies and bosses while exploring the mysterious Tower of Babylon.  Create your character, defeat gigantic foes, collect loot, and craft equipment to customize your own build and play style!

The good news: you’ll be able to team up with friends and fight as a party of up to four Sentinels! The even better news: you will do so in absolute style.

That’s right, Babylon’s Fall follows in the steps of the previous PlatinumGames masterpiece NieR: Automata and will let you fight your way through the tower with elegant, frantic, and absolutely devastating non-stop action. Before we dive into some specifics, let’s take a moment to talk about the Gideon Coffin – a key item not only for the story but the gameplay too.

Four Sentinels with Gideon Coffins on their back.

Gideon Coffin

This mysterious device implanted in the back of your character will allow you to use the Gideon Gut, a series of spectral tendrils that burst out of the Gideon Coffin enabling a range of different abilities. Not gonna lie, the best of these powers is certainly the Gideon Arms. While you can normally wield two weapons – one per hand – the Gideon Arms let you equip two more! Yup, you read that correctly: you can wield four weapons at all times! Pretty mad, especially when you can mix and match weapons to your liking.

A sword and a hammer equipped as Gideon Arms.

When the game releases, five types of weapons will be available: swords, hammers, bows, staffs, and shields. These will allow for a great deal of loadout customization, for you to build your ideal Sentinel!

Do you like close combat and heavy weapons? Equip two hammers and two shields! Want to be a balanced fighter with two swords, a bow, and a shield? Go for it. You’re more the careful so

Hades launches August 13 on PS4 and PS5

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

It’s been a while, PlayStation Nation! Last you saw my name ‘round these parts, we were just about to launch our third game, Pyre. Fast forward a million years later (OK, more like four years later), and it’s my great pleasure to announce that our Game of the Year-winning rogue-like dungeon crawler, Hades, is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles on August 13! Here’s a quick look at it:

Hades launches August 13 on PS4 and PS5

Hades is the fourth game from our studio, and combines the best aspects of our past critically acclaimed titles, including the fast-paced action of Bastion, the rich atmosphere and depth of Transistor, and the character-driven storytelling of Pyre. Playing as the immortal Prince of the Greek Underworld, you’ll wield the powers and mythic weapons of Olympus to break free from the clutches of the god of the dead himself, while growing stronger and unraveling more of the story with each unique escape attempt.

We were absolutely blown away by the initial response to Hades, which was named 2020’s Game of the Year by more than 50 sources. We were incredibly honored to be in contention for the year’s biggest accolades alongside a number of outstanding PlayStation titles, and we’re thrilled to have Hades join them on PlayStation soon.

If you’re familiar with Hades, you might be wondering what’s different about the PlayStation versions. The PlayStation 5 version runs at 4K at a target 60 frames per second, whereas the PS4 version runs at 1080p at a target 60fps. On the PS5, the 4K visuals really bring out all the wonderful detail our art team put into the hand-painted characters and environments. 

We also take advantage of t

A closer look at PS5’s Game Help feature

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

At PS5’s launch, we introduced a brand new feature, Game Help, so players can quickly and  easily get help during their gameplay – without accidentally running into spoilers they might find elsewhere. The feature is supported in PS5 games like Astro’s Playroom, Maquette, Oddworld: Soulstorm, and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart which just launched today, just to name a few. 

Many of you may be curious about how the feature came to life, so we wanted to share some insights about this PlayStation Plus* member benefit that’s available for supported games. 

Also, check out this Game Help video demonstration from Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. 

A closer look at PS5’s Game Help feature

How Game Help got started

During PS5 development, our research found that the majority of players told us they seek out help for their games. Almost half get stuck in a game on a weekly basis, and more than half said they encounter spoilers when they seek out help for a game, or spend too much time searching for the tip they are looking for.

This feedback really resonated with us, so we went to work to create a feature for players that provides them with an easy way to get hints on the specific parts of the game they are playing, without spoilers or spending a lot of time searching for tips on the internet. We worked closely with game developers to create this feature, and also incorporated key feedback from our user testing research. It’s great to see this feature implemented in supported games, to quickly provide hints to players directly from the PS5 console, so they can spend more time playing.

What players are using Game Help for

We’re seeing a lot of players seeking hints on puzzles. We tend to see more engagement with Game Help for games that include a lot of puzzles throughout, like Astro’s Playroom and Maquette.

We also see players seeking help when they get lost in a game, so videos that guide players where to go are very popular. Also, if they take a break for a couple of days in between their game play sessions, they may check Game Help when resuming their game session to get re
