    PS4
    Our little team at Sloclap is making final preparations and putting the finishing touches on Absolver ahead of its August 29 launch on PlayStation 4. If you've seen the game, you know the attention to detail and flow in the combat is central to Absolver's design, and we hope everyone enjoyed the new "drunken boxing" combat style we debuted at E3 this year. Alongside the other three primary combat styles, we hope that the PlayStation community will find their favorites and build unique combat decks for some memorable duals online later this summer. We can't thank you enough for all the love and support and can't wait to share more with you all in these next few months!

    LawBreakers
    [​IMG]
    Boss Key Productions
    PS4
    Yep, it's E3 2017, and downtown Los Angeles is as traffic-heavy as it's always been. Seriously, trying to do anything in this town is bonkers; I both love and hate LA. =) So, why are we here? Because we're bringing our upcoming team-based FPS, LawBreakers, to PS4 on August 8th (that's right, an actual release date), and we just had to let everyone see it here at E3. So yeah, we braved the craziness to be here at E3 to have LawBreakers playable on the show floor... ON PS4 for the first time EVER. Pretty awesome to give console players a taste of the high-skill, gravity-defying combat at our booth. We're showcasing the latest content, including recent additions: our triple-jumping Wraith Role and buzzer-beating Blitzball mode. Plus, we worked A LOT on making sure the controls translate to PS4 and play nice and smooth. Oh, and for those of you who didn't brave the E3 insanity, we'll have a Closed Beta later this month (so, go register!) - more details on that soon. As always, check out our cinematic trailer if you haven't already.

    Sundered

    Thunder Lotus Games
    PS4
    It's hard to believe that the first images of our upcoming hand-drawn platformer, Sundered, were revealed by Sony just last fall – and here we are, already barreling into the home stretch, with exclusive footage of the game's end boss freshly unveiled on the PlayStation Underground Livecast! For those just now discovering the project, Sundered is a horrifying fight for survival and sanity. You play Eshe, a wanderer in a ruined world, trapped in ever-changing caverns teeming with terrifying hordes of monsters. Choose to resist or embrace ancient eldritch powers and battle epic bosses before challenging Nyarlathotep, the game's fearsome end boss revealed in our latest trailer here. We're so excited to be launching Sundered on PlayStation in July. We set out to build on the strengths of our first game, Jotun, and I can confidently state that Sundered is the best work our team has ever done. I hope you'll join the Sundered horde this summer!

    The Swords of Ditto

    onebitbeyond
    PS4
    Greetings, PlayStation heroes! I'm Bidds, the director of onebitbeyond Ltd, and I'm super excited to announce that our first game, The Swords of Ditto, will debut on PlayStation 4 early next year. The Swords of Ditto is what we're calling a "compact adventure" for one or two players to take up the mantle of the legendary hero of the Island of Ditto and battle against the vile sorceress Mormo. Every adventure is unique, as a new hero journeys through a remixed overworld and dungeons using a fresh collection of weapons, items, and magical collectible stickers. Overcome Mormo and become the next adventure's hero of legend – or fail and let evil grip the land for a hundred years! It's up to you! We can't wait to share more over the coming months and hear what the PlayStation community thinks of The Swords of Ditto.

    Unto The End


    2 Ton Studios
    PS4
    Three years ago my wife Sara and I left our jobs, sold our home, put things in storage and decided to see if we could make a go of video games while living as digital nomads. We built seven different prototypes during the first two years – none of them felt right. So it's a bit of an understatement to say that we're excited to officially announce Unto The End. It's a game with skillful combat, featuring a non-hero protagonist and an action-crafted narrative. Underpinning it all is an effort to refine the 2D adventure-combat experience by stripping away anything that might distract the player. No HUD, no gold, no leveling, just player skill determining success. Our PS4 target is 2018. Expect to hear much more from us as we push towards our final release. Watch the trailer for a first look at Unto The End.

    Valfaris
    [​IMG]
    Digital Uppercut
    PS4
    All of us at Digital Uppercut are cosmically hyped to announce fierce 2D action-platformer Valfaris – a heavy-metal space saga and the next game from the team behind the raucously savage Slain: Back From Hell. Set on Valfaris – a once-opulent floating citadel that has become tainted with a powerful evil – the game will blend brutal combat, cursed environments, twisted enemies, awesome pixel art, and a seismic soundtrack from former Celtic Frost guitarist Curt Victor Bryant, so expect riffs with enough metal to tear the galaxy a new wormhole. Valfaris will be hitting PS4 in 2018, and we can't wait to share more details as development progresses. In the meantime, check out the Valfaris E3 announcement trailer.

    Sudden Strike 4
    [​IMG]
    KITE Studios
    PS4
    Greetings, PlayStation fans! I'm Christian Schlütter, producer at Kalypso Media. I am excited to tell you about Sudden Strike 4 and the authenticity that the foundations upon which our upcoming strategy heavyweight is built. Sudden Strike 4 marks the return of the legendary real-time tactics series, which brings you the biggest and most dramatic historically accurate battles from World War II and tasks you with becoming not just a soldier, but a general, with the outcome of some of the biggest conflicts in history at stake. As well as the tactical depth, here at Kalypso Media we're exceptionally proud of the authenticity and realism found in Sudden Strike 4. Map accuracy, the ability to choose your own general, tactically demanding combat, skill development, and unit maintenance provide a gameplay experience like no other. There's no base-building or unit creation. The only resource you have to manage is the lives of your loyal troops, and they'll be relying on your wits and combat nous to see them through to the end of the mission. Sudden Strike 4 is a new milestone in strategy gaming on PlayStation, and we can't wait for you to play it. See you on the field, soldier!
    -- Christian Schlütter // Producer, Kalypso Media


    Dead Alliance
    [​IMG]
    Psyop and IllFonic
    PS4
    Set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where military bases are humanity's last city-states, Dead Alliance pits warring teams of players against each other for survival in a world ravaged by the zombie plague. It features a variety of 4v4 multiplayer modes, including Team Deathmatch, Free for All, King of the Hill, Capture and Hold, and the MOBA-inspired Attrition mode, as well as single-player survival horde mode and solo-ops. Dead Alliance lets players customize and upgrade their loadouts with an arsenal of high-powered, military-grade weapons and advanced zombie-controlling tech called zMods. These zMods can be active or passive, and examples include the Enrager, a pheromone grenade that turns a single zombie into an ally of superior strength and resistance; the PAM grenade, which puts four zombies to work for you, but does not increase their damage resistance; and the Templar, which drives zombies away from you and de-frenzies any that have been pammed by the enemy. Use these and many more zMods available in the game to get the undead to join forces with you!

    Extinction

    Iron Galaxy
    PS4
    From time immemorial, the world has been at war. For generations, humans have fought one another for land and riches while our true enemies have lurked in the distance: throngs of ravenous monsters standing 150 feet tall that aim to destroy our kind. Only those trained in the ways of the ancient order stand a chance at defeating these monstrosities, known colloquially as "ogres." You are one of the world's last defenders, a warrior named Avil equipped with the skill, speed and strength to oppose the endless wave of Ravenii and prevent a fate worse than death: Extinction. In Extinction, you'll fight massive ogres and their minions across a sprawling countryside, defending cities and rescuing native villagers torn from their homes. Swiftly define your strategy as hordes attack from the ground and air. Use the dynamic skill-based combat system to tactically disarm and dismember enemies before going in for the kill!

Hit the gas and get ready to tackle unpredictable, dynamic weather conditions in a competition which is unique in its genre. From sun to heavy rain, every change will decisively influence the rider’s visibility and the highly-deformable ground, putting even the most expert player to the test. And it is the ground which provides the greatest challenge: mud, dust and dynamic deformations will be the master of all, while the sounds of engines running at full throttle, souped up with a brand new audio engine, merge with the ambient noise.

    ROM: Extraction
    [​IMG]
    First Contact Entertainment
    PlayStation VR (Aim Controller support)
    First Contact Entertainment is a virtual reality studio made up of game industry veterans from world-class franchises like Call of Duty, Overwatch, Halo, Metal Gear Solid, Adrift, and Overkill’s The Walking Dead VR. As a studio we’re focused on raising and setting the bar for immersive VR gaming: creating high-quality visuals, game mechanics, characters and narrative with a focus on fun and replayability. Our debut VR game ROM: Extraction released in 2016, and we’re excited to announce that ROM is now coming to PS VR! After exploring the enhanced mechanics made possible by the PS Aim Controller, we’re inspired to develop additional ROM content exclusively for PlayStation VR and PS VR aim controller. Players can expect multiple new weapons, new types of enemies, new levels and an entirely new game mode. ROM itself is a twist on the classic arcade shooter–and with the addition of this new exclusive PS VR content, we are taking it even further! Set in the year 2076, you’ll take on the role of an Extractor, on a mission to obtain alien resources to bring back to Earth. Unfortunately, your ship has been overrun by extraterrestrial AI, laser-focused on protecting these vital resources. By combining your futuristic weapons with your ability to slow down time, you’ll eliminate enemies like never before in this high-intensity arcade experience. ROM: Extraction is VR gaming with a twist, and we’re thrilled to develop that further with PlayStation VR and the PS VR Aim Controller, coming Fall 2017.

    The Persistence
    [​IMG]
    Firesprite Ltd.
    PlayStation VR
    With E3 approaching, we are excited to reveal some of the terrifying cast you will encounter on board The Persistence!


    During a scientific experiment, hundreds of the ship’s crew were accidentally teleported in to space. ‘IRIS’, the ships computer, tried to bring them all back but the DNA of The Persistence’s crew was merged and began to mutate.

    This is how The Berserker was born. He’s 9ft tall, over 4ft wide, and has serious anger issues! It’s much safer to run and hide when you see a Berserker but if you’re ready to take a big risk, you can use his rage to your advantage. If you can somehow cause him damage, then the red mist descends and he’ll smash anything and anybody, including other mutants! Of course, if he sees you then his snarling face is going to be the last thing you ever see!

    The only mutant onboard that he’s unable to kill is The Weeper, who will paralyse anyone that comes too close to her. She’s truly terrifying!
