Marvel’s Spider-Man – New Story Trailer, Pre-Order Updates, and More

San Diego Comic-Con kicked off with a bang this Thursday! Everyone here at Insomniac Games was honored to be a part of the Marvel Games panel in the legendary Hall H, a hallowed location for major moments in pop culture history.

As part of the panel, we showed off our latest story trailer, which had a first look at our original take on Silver Sable, a longtime anti-hero popularized in the pages of the Amazing Spider-Man, in our game. And you could finally hear Norman Osborn himself speak!

As you saw in the trailer, as events in the city begin to escalate in Marvel’s Spider-Man, Mayor Norman Osborn is willing to take no risks during his re-election bid. He hires Silver Sable and her mercenary organization to restore order to the city – which includes stopping someone he believes is contributing to the mayhem: Spider-Man.

We also get to see a glimpse of Spider-Man, MJ, and Miles Morales together for the first time. One of the game’s themes is partnership, and this is a little glimpse showing that Spider-Man is even greater if he relies on help from his friends.

We were pleased to introduce some new members of our cast on the game as well. You already know Yuri Lowenthal is playing Spider-Man, but we also introduced Stephen Oyoung as Mister Negative / Martin Li, and Laura Bailey as Mary Jane Watson.

Many of you had guessed that the final mystery suit in our Spidey Suit Pack pre-order offering would be revealed at SDCC. We revealed the new Velocity Suit – an original suit for the game that was created by acclaimed comic book artist and film character designer Adi Granov. It joins the Spider-Punk suit and Iron Spider suit (inspired by Marvel Studios’ The Avengers: Infinity War) to round out the set. Here’s all three suits in action, and even if you do not pre-order, you can earn these suits in-game as well.

Adi Granov also created a PS4 theme – which is also available as part of the pre-order offering! We’re still putting the finishing touches on the theme, but because we can’t wait to show you, here’s a peek at the art that PS4 theme will use.

And if that wasn’t enough news – you may have also heard that we revealed the Marvel’s Spider-Man Limited Edition PS4 Pro in Amazing Red, which features the iconic spider icon emblazoned on Spider-Man’s Advanced Suit in the game. Want more details? Click here.

Limited Edition Marvel's Spider-Man PlayStation 4 Pro Bundle

That’s just the beginning at San Diego Comic-Con. We have our E3 show floor demo playable on the Comic-Con show floor in the Marvel booth, and many more exciting activities happening on stage at the Marvel booth this week. So check out Marvel Games’ twitter to stay up with all the latest happening from San Diego.

That’s all for now, we’re closing in quickly on the release date. We cannot wait to bring you Marvel’s Spider-Man, exclusively to the PlayStation 4 system, on September 7.

Game-Changing Enter the Gungeon Update Out Today

Hello Gungeoneers, the team at Dodge Roll is so excited to finally share the long-awaited Advanced Gungeons & Draguns update for Enter the Gungeon with the PlayStation community! First, we wanted to thank you all and the folks at PlayStation for supporting us and the game from the start and can’t be more thrilled to bring you something of a remaster of Enter the Gungeon.

So what is Advanced Gungeons & Draguns exactly? The primary focus of the update was to provide a ton of new content and challenge balancing for longtime fans while making the Gungeon a far more generous place for those new to the game. This takes a number of forms, the first is that drop rates are better pretty much across the board. You will see far fewer brown chests, more high tier chests, more money, better selection in shops, more NPCs and shrines.

Enter the Gungeon: Advanced Gungeons & Draguns

The next form the generosity takes is a total overhaul of our synergies – guns can now interact with other guns and items with items, with often over-the-top and frighteningly powerful results. This leads to new followers, new orbitals, new gun variants, or just totally new effects. There are around 500 of these new synergies in the game, which you’ll run into naturally as you play the game. Furthermore, there’s a new NPC you can find who might help you out in completing some of those combinations!

Enter the Gungeon: Advanced Gungeons & DragunsEnter the Gungeon: Advanced Gungeons & Draguns

There are a couple of other quality of life improvements, like the ability to save hearts for later (on a floor) and the ability to speed up the player’s movement speed when you are not in combat. Obviously, there are a number of new items and guns to find and unlock, as well as new enemies and hundreds of rooms and a bunch of other random things we added over the past year. Also, you can slide over tables now and are invulnerable when doing so which feels awesome.

Enter the Gungeon: Advanced Gungeons & Draguns

Finally, there are two new bosses, and one new mini-boss. The two new bosses are meant for high-level players, and unsurprisingly both are hidden. And Turbo Mode. You can unlock Turbo Mode which longtime Gungeoneers might never go back from.

Everyone at Dodge Roll hopes you enjoy both halves of Advanced Gungeons & Draguns. Whether you’re a new player coming to check out the more generous Gungeon, or you’re a longtime veteran seeking more challenging content, the team appreciates your support, your enthusiasm, and may Kaliber bless your runs!

Mega Man X – Saga of the Maverick Hunters

The futuristic sci-fi setting of the Mega Man X series ushered in a set of new and exciting gameplay abilities for fans beginning in the early ’90s. Wall-jumping, dashing, and equipping armor upgrades are sublime, but the series also has a grittier narrative for the heroic battles of X, Zero, and Axl. Whereas the classic Mega Man series focused on fun, Saturday Morning cartoon story pastiche with Dr. Wily’s recurring tricks and antics, the Mega Man X series took on a more mature tone.

In preparation for Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 + 2 coming to PS4 on July 24, now is the perfect time to reflect on the series’ story of powerful, sentient androids and their struggle to find footing in human society.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection

The Road to 21XX

The first Mega Man X takes place roughly 100 years after the original Mega Man series. Set within the same world as the original series, the titular hero, X, is a different robot from the classic series’ iconic Blue Bomber. Long before the events of the first 16-bit title begin, Dr. Thomas Light finished his final robot creation before he passed away. A highly advanced fighting robot with intelligence, emotion, and free will, X was made to be an equivalent to humankind.

Light believed X would be critical for the eventual salvation of the planet, but realized that his fellow humans would likely not be ready to accept him due to the potential threat he could pose to society. As a result, Dr. Light sealed away X to run 30 years of diagnostics to ensure his final creation would be ready for the world that awaited him.

A century later, an archaeologist from Able City, Dr. Cain, uncovered the capsule storing X, and was in awe of Light’s technological marvel. X overshadowed even modern advances in robotic circuitry, and as a result, Dr. Cain used X’s schematics as the blueprint for a new, enhanced line of robots called Reploids. These new machines demonstrated unparalleled combat prowess and intelligence, though none matched X’s integrated empathy and evolutionary potential.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection

Dramatic leaps in technology always come with risks, and the Reploids were no exception. An unusual virus and corrupted programming infected a number of Reploids, turning them from defenders of humanity into deadly killing machines. Dr. Cain assembled a squadron of dependable Reploids to counter these irregular Reploids that came to be known as “Mavericks.”

X, with his hardwired combat prowess, was selected to join the Maverick Hunter team alongside a red, A-Class Maverick hunter with flowing, golden hair named Zero. Once thought to be a Maverick himself, Zero was repaired by Dr. Cain and became a dependable Maverick Hunter. Dr. Cain also created the imposing Sigma, who he selected to command the Maverick Hunters due to his unmatched combat prowess and decisive nature. Together, the squadron fought against bands of Mavericks to maintain justice and peace in the world.

To Dr. Cain’s dismay, his worst nightmare transpired when Commander Sigma went Maverick. The advanced Reploid put down his figurative shield to society, picked up his literal laser sword of destruction, and declared humans inferior and a hindrance to the evolution of Reploid-kind. He assembled a band of fellow Mavericks, from the frigid Chill Penguin to the hulking inferno Flame Mammoth, and attacked an isolated island near Able City.

This is where the adventure of the first Mega Man X title begins – with X heroically traversing a crumbling, futuristic highway on a mission to stop Sigma and his eight Maverick lieutenants. If you want to learn more about the events before the original Mega Man X, check out “The Day of Σ,” a thrilling animated prequel that’s included in both Mega Man X Legacy Collection and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection

The Maverick Hunters Saga Continues

Mega Man X is only the beginning, as X, Zero, Axl, and the rest of the crew pursue the corrupting influence of Sigma through multiple battles and incarnations. The Hunters must face new Reploid menaces gone Maverick, like the slippery Wheel Gator and dive-bombing Blast Hornet.

The evil X-Hunters assemble in Mega Man X2, focused on destroying X and claiming Zero for their own destructive deeds. Mega Man X4 introduces fully animated cutscenes and the Repliforce, a militaristic counter-Maverick force that operates independent from the Maverick Hunters. Mega Man X5 explores Zero’s nightmarish past, revealing his legendarily brilliant-yet-devious creator.

Mega Man X7 and X8 introduce new protagonist Axl, a rapid-firing Reploid seeking a new team after his previous comrades in Red Alert begin showing Maverick-like tendencies. This is the perfect time to return to these unforgettable tales, or experience them for the first time.

The narrative of the Mega Man X series features many twists, turns, unique characters, and unforgettable moments. These dramatic story beats are woven together with satisfying gameplay, wherein players battle a gang of eight Maverick bosses in any order, steal their weapons, and use them against other enemies.

If one-on-one Maverick battles don’t quench your thirst for combat, Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 + 2 features the exclusive X Challenge mode, which pits X against two Mavericks at once in a series of intense battles. Think you can take on Wheel Gator’s underwater antics while Bubble Crab dishes out damage? Try it out for yourself!

Dash into Mega Man X – X4 in Mega Man X Legacy Collection, and jump into Mega Man X5 – X8 in Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2, coming to PS4 on July 24 as a digital or physical bundle. Fight like it’s the year 21XX!

Breaking Down Death and Other Features in Death’s Gambit, Out August 14

Hello, all! Alex from White Rabbit here, and we’re really excited to reveal the final feature list for Death’s Gambit and do a deep dive into the features that make our 2D action platformer Gambit shine! August 14 is so soon!

Death's Gambit

Expansive Campaign

Death’s Gambit is a challenging game. There are many things we do to alleviate the inevitable frustrations that come with the territory — from music, to the landscapes, and even how we treat death. Death is a marker of progression in Death’s Gambit. Certain story beats only unlock upon dying. Bosses will remember if you’ve lost to them before. Does that mean you have to die to get the full story experience? Not exactly. There is an overarching narrative that plays out as you guide Sorun through Siradon. We’ve made sure the most important story beats happen naturally while playing. And for all you lore hunters out there, there is plenty of hidden subtext within the narrative of the world design and its items that should clue you into some nefarious undercurrents to the main storyline and more!
 

Mortal Perma-death

Death is a recurring theme and mechanic of Death’s Gambit. Go figure. For the most hardcore players, it’s possible to cancel Death’s contract, a mutual agreement that for all intents and purposes keeps you immortal. Cancelling the contract will turn you mortal, and activate iron-man mode, or perma-death. Try it out at your own peril!

Non-Linear World

Upon exiting the tutorial, the world opens up and allows for multiple routes. Right from the get go there are five bosses that are accessible. Each area has a distinctive feel and aesthetic to it that explores the themes of death and immortality. Should you come across something that seems impossible, fret not! There’s likely another path you have yet to explore.
 

Heroic Boss Rematch

In the same way you resurrect and challenge bosses over and over again, the bosses can do the same to you. Defeating them once will not stop them. Return to the boss room and face off against a heroic version of the boss that introduces new abilities and loot, at an exponentially harder difficulty!

New Game +

Now if that wasn’t enough to encourage all the masochistic souls-like fans, there’s also a New Game+! New Game+ introduces some varying enemy placements, and of course a bump in overall difficulty by scaling health and damage. If you want a real challenge, I encourage you to defeat all heroic bosses in New Game+ as a mortal. Good luck!
 

7 Classes

There are a total of 7 playable classes in our game. They determine starting stats, equipment, as well as certain unique gameplay mechanics. For reference, soul energy is a meter you build up to spend on abilities. Attacking enemies naturally awards soul energy, but most of the classes have an additional method.

  • Soldier: Blocking enemy attacks awards soul energy.
  • Assassin: Dodging enemy attacks awards soul energy.
  • Wizard: Healing awards soul energy.
  • Sentinel: Equip weapons and shields at half the required stats. Parrying awards soul energy.
  • Noble: Gain access to a unique merchant. Using items awards soul energy.
  • Blood Knight: Regain a portion of lost health when dealing damage.
  • Acolyte of Death: Restore broken save points. Killing enemies awards soul energy.

 

Talent Tree

While there are 7 different classes, the talent tree remains universal. Each class has one additional talent on top of the base starting talent that determines how they gain soul energy. Talent points are earned from defeating bosses, but only in the first play through. New Game+ does not award additional talent points. So choose wisely according to your favored playstyle.

No Weapon Restrictions

While classes start with a specific weapon, they are by no means limited to using that for the whole game. You are free to swap out your weapons however you see fit, as long as you have the required stats. There are two weapon slots in the inventory, for you to equip weapons, while a shield is always available.

Weapon Skills

Weapon skills or abilities are tied to the specific weapon and not classes. Therefore your build depends entirely on what weapon you use. Each weapon has a set of 3 skills that perform various functions from utility, pure damage, to applying status effects. Weapon skills are what add dynamism to the combat of Death’s Gambit. Experiment with different weapon combinations and skills to find one that suits your playstyle, or switch them up according to the challenges you face!

But Wait!

There’s plenty more, from storing your healing feathers to augment your damage, to chests that only open if you haven’t healed since the last save point. Challenges are strewn around the world, with a ton of tools to customize your playstyle. We hope you’ve enjoyed this deep dive into some of the mechanics of Death’s Gambit. We look forward to seeing how you all fare on August 14!

A brilliant take on the crowded roguelite dungeon-crawler genre, switching often enough between adventuring and shop/town management to prevent you from getting bored of either. Beautiful art, animation & music seal the deal.
Laser League
Andy Yen // PlayStation Store

Laser League is a thrilling futuristic sport in which you must eliminate your opponents with deadly laser grids. Each match is tense and kinetic and every win feels like a triumph. It’s an absolute blast and the perfect party game.

Futuristic Sci-Fi Shooter Gene Rain Launches on PS4 Tomorrow

“The difference between a demon and a hero is just inside your head.”

— Dr. Bill Feynman

Gene Rain is a futuristic third-person shooter launching on PS4 tomorrow. It takes place at the end of the 21st century, a time when science and technology are developing incredibly rapidly. The collision between man and technology brings the world into endless conflict, and society is fragmented by inequality as the majority of people can’t adapt to the fierce competition that ensues.

Gene Rain

There are two opposing forces in Gene Rain. First, meet senior statesman of the quantum technology circle: Dr. Bill Feynman. Dr. Feynman aspired to change the genetic structure of human beings to make everyone’s IQ equal. He created genetic spraying agents, and used his power to build modified wind towers to spread the agent around the world.

Gene mutation brings a completely new evolution, but unfortunately, not everyone can adapt to the change in genetic structure and many die in the process.

The Death Squad hopes to stop the Gene Rain by destroying the wind towers around the world. There are both humans and robots in the Death Squad, all with the singular objective to restore world order.

Gene Rain

You are part of the Death Squad, and control four characters. As you advance through the game, you can upgrade and transform your weapons, and use the improved weapons in new levels.

Apart from the main guns that can be freely upgraded, we also built a 3D audio system for weapons. The sound effects are self-adapting to different bullet velocities, giving bullets distinctive sounds as they fly past your ear.

Enemy behavior in the game is driven by an AI tree which allows them to respond in a variety of ways according to their judgment. Sometimes they will attack openly; sometimes they will sneak up and ambush you. With a variety of weapon classes, the whole game is tense and exciting!

Gene Rain

Development of the game started in 2014, when we were still video game outsourcing contractors. A group of us were very eager to make our own game, so we established a game research and development studio in 2015. We wanted to create a next-generation console game, and after a series of discussions, the Gene Rain project emerged.

During the development process, we stayed up countless nights to finish the project. Each scene in the game took an average of three months to debug and polish. Sometimes it was hard to find the balance between artistic reality and actual reality. Finally we created a refreshing TPS game with a modern style and a compelling sci-fi setting. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it!

But enough from us. You are now ready to begin your apocalyptic journey.

Gene Rain

Featured Story: God of War / Horizon Zero Dawn Mash-Up

PlayStation studio developers are usually hard at work bringing us the very best in video game entertainment, so it’s not often that we get to see beloved characters from separate game franchises brought together in a harmonious way leading to must-own merchandise. However, that’s exactly what we saw at E3 2018. Guerilla Games, developer of Horizon Zero Dawn, produced an all new PlayStation fan-favorite mash-up featuring Kratos, Atreus and Aloy. In this endearing scene, Aloy takes time out to help Atreus sharpen his aim.

God of War Horizon Zero Dawn art

The image was first surfaced online and subsequently into the hearts of PlayStation fans worldwide. The fanfare was undeniable. Not long after the artwork’s release, Santa Monica Studio contacted the PlayStation Gear team and asked to see if the piece could be used in developing E3 2018 products. Naturally, we jumped at the opportunity!

We asked Guerilla Games to give us the scoop on how this engaging piece came to be. Here’s what they had to say…

For the God of War launch, we wanted to do something special. Something that highlighted the PlayStation family. What better way to display this, by sharing some amazing art created by one of our artists where the God of War world would meet the universe of Horizon Zero Dawn?

Santa Monica Studio was not aware of what we had planned for them, as we wanted it to be a surprise for not only the PlayStation fans, but also the studio themselves.

We loved seeing all the positive responses from the PlayStation fans for this and who knows, maybe more of these creative outbursts will happen in the future.

If you missed your chance at E3 2018 to own the t-shirt or decal sticker featuring this historic character mash-up, be sure to swing by the PlayStation Gear store booth at 2018 Comic-Con International: San Diego for another chance to purchase these super cool items!
