Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Today, we are thrilled to announce that Backbone One – PlayStation Edition, an officially licensed smartphone controller, is now available for both iOS and Android users internationally.

The reception we received when we recently announced Backbone One – PlayStation Edition for iOS has been incredibly exciting. We’ve seen many gamers take advantage of the PS Remote Play app feature, enabling gamers to play PS4 and PS5 games streamed from the console with the Backbone One – PlayStation Edition while they are out and about or anywhere in the home.* It has quickly become one of the most popular gaming features on the BackBone platform.

We’ve heard repeatedly from Android users asking for the same best-in-class gaming experience, so we’re excited to now offer Backbone One PlayStation Edition for Android  as well.

We’ve closely collaborated with the PlayStation team on the look and feel of Backbone One – PlayStation Edition for Android. The colors, materials and finishes are all inspired by the design of the DualSense wireless controller, including the transparent face buttons. It matches the look of the PS5 console, and if you already own the Pulse 3D wireless headset, you can connect it directly to your Backbone One via its 3.5mm headphone jack.

The latest update to the PS Remote Play app on Google Play allows for easy setup and play with Backbone One – PlayStation Edition. If you have access to broadband internet and a PS5 or PS4 console, plug an iPhone or Android device into the Backbone One and instantly start playing your PS5 and PS4 games with the power of the PS Remote Play app — whether that’s out and about or even elsewhere in the home*. See the PlayStation Remote Play website for more information.

When using the PlayStation App, players can double-tap the Options button on Backbone One – PlayStation Edition to easily access the app. Additionally, the latest PlayStation App update will also support controller-based navigation in landscape orientation to optimize the user experience.

Available games may differ by region.

Backbone One also works wonderfully with Google Play and App Store games as well as other game streaming services that support controllers, and may be used with games like Call of Duty: Mobile, Fortnite, Diablo Immortal, and more.

Players can download the Backbone App for a customized PlayStation experience. Inside the app, you’ll see various PlayStation integrations such as custom glyphs representing the iconic PlayStation shapes, and the ability to browse hundreds of game titles. The Backbone app on Android brings all your games into one place, including app store games and supported game streaming services. Players will also find a dedicated row inside the Backbone App with new releases and updates from PlayStation.

Charge into battle in Battlefield 2042 – Season 5: New Dawn, deploying June 7 

Welcome to Czechia

This landlocked European country is the setting for the Season 5 Reclaimed map. In 2048, war descends on an abandoned industrial facility slowly being retaken by nature. Let’s take a quick look at the areas of particular interest to anyone deployed here:

● Looking for some serious vehicle combat? Head immediately to the Crash Site. Just look for the derailed train in this once-secret train route. The Landing Zone is hidden away in the forest providing a circular area ideal for close-quarters combat, with new sightlines opening up when trees are destroyed.

● The towering indoor space of the Abandoned Turbine sets up incredible crossfire opportunities due to its verticality and cover. While the Military Warehouse’s floors are more likely to attract snipers and a range of gunplay experiences because of the narrow layout.

● Hidden inside the nearby mountains lies The Bunker, forgotten and made up of a central room where short-range, close-quarters combat will always be pretty intense. The Silos, on the other hand, are an expansive outdoor area perfect for vehicle combat – including truly epic tank battles. Easy to spot due to its four towers rising up from the ground, The Silos also provides plenty of elevated areas for infantry to more safely take a shot at vehicles dominating the ground.

Your Season 5 arsenal

You’re going to need the right weapons to handle everything this new season can throw at you, luckily, we’ve got just what you need:

● XCE Bar – This high-precision bolt action rifle has expanded attachment capability to accompany its stopping power, letting you quickly swap through attachment options to engage foes at various distances.

● GEW-46

Alone in the Dark Spotlight – Hollywood talent and new gameplay

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Returning to the origin of survival horror with Alone in the Dark meant creating a faithful love letter for long-term fans, but also an accessible entry point for new players. Crafting a reimagining that modern gamers will love while staying true to the original experience takes time, and we’re happy to reveal that the wait is almost over – Alone in the Dark will release on PlayStation 5 on October 25.

The team at Pieces Interactive are die-hard Alone in the Dark fans, and knew exactly where to turn when it came to reimagining the game that gave birth to a genre. Creatively led by Mikael Hedberg, writer of horror classics Amnesia: The Dark Descent and SOMA, with creature designs from legendary Guillermo Del Toro collaborator Guy Davis, their vision for Alone in the Dark was a dream (or is that nightmare?) come true for us.

Alone in the Dark Spotlight – Hollywood talent and new gameplay

As with any good survival horror game, we of course have mind-bending puzzles and clues you’ll need to explore to find, with a twist. If you want to really flex your investigative muscles, choose our difficulty that offers less assistance, or you can select an option which provides more tips, hints, and overall guidance.

Today, we fully unveiled this new, nightmarish vision to the world in our Alone in the Dark Spotlight stream. Across 11 nerve-jangling minutes, we revealed our starring talent of David Harbour as Detective Edward Carnby and Jodie Comer as Emily Hartwood, gave you a look at all-new gameplay and cutscenes, and dove into how the haunting Doom Jazz soundscape of Derceto Manor was brought to life. We also launched our playable Prologue, where you can get a short glimpse of the horrors that await you in the full game, today.

A new generation of classic horror

The power of modern hardware has unlocked new possibilities, especially when it comes to our lead character performances. Being able to capture more emotion in faces meant we could bring our dual protagonists Detective Edward Carnby (David Harbour) and Emily Hartwood (Jodie Comer) to life like never before. Whoever you choose to play as, you’ll experience the entire adventure through a performance from one of Hollywood’s most talented actors in their first ever videogame role.

While Edward and Emily may go through the same overall events in Alone in the Dark, both characters will interpret their journey differently through their reactions to their environments – and a few unique story mome
