Take a closer look at the tribes of Horizon Forbidden West, including the Utaru and Tenakth

Image
The next chapter of Aloy’s story begins on February 18, and as she crosses into the frontier of the Forbidden West, she will encounter tribes both strange and familiar. From the border settlements of the Carja and Oseram, to the blighted fields of the Utaru in Plainsong, to the battle-worn Clan Lands of the Tenakth, new alliances and deadly enemies await. Join us as we take a closer look at the denizens of the frontier, their lands, and their customs – but do not expect to learn all their secrets. As Aloy will discover, the only way to unravel the mysteries of the Forbidden West is to explore it for yourself. Play Video from PlayStation.Blog https://ift.tt/3G28Y8O via IFTTT

PlayStation Editors’ Choice 2021 recap

Image
Just like that, 2021 came and went. A veritable smorgasbord of great games is left in its wake. We fought through vicious timeloops, battled werewolves, leapt across colorful platforming worlds, and so much more.  Throughout the year, PlayStation teammates selected their favorite titles to join the top-tier Editors’ Choice halls. To mark the end of a great year for game releases, we’re reflecting on several titles that were entered into the Editors’ Choice pantheon. Let’s dive in. Hitman 3  January 20, 2021  Agent 47 marks his return in IO Interactive’s excellent stealth assassination sequel. The adaptive operator lurks across a variety of colorful locales, from thrumming underground clubs to posh vineyards (complete with irresistibly lethal grape-pressing machinery). The Dartmoor stage is a standout – a murder mystery set within a sprawling mansion where Agent 47 can assume the role of detective. Whether your preference is free-style chaos or following subtle mission guidance, H

How The Little Mermaid chapter was created for NieR Replicant

Image
Nier’s universe is a weird and wonderful one. Born of what was initially thought a joke ending to 2003’s PlayStation 2 title Drakengard, Nier’s intricate story can be pieced together from delightful lore segments extending across guidebooks, novellas, concerts, and even stage plays. The Mermaid chapter, one of the brand-new additions to be found in the upgraded version of NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 is one such tidbit of lore, originally released as light novella to be found in the original game’s official guide. In this brand-new addition to the game, we follow the story of a young girl stranded on a shipwreck, a wonderfully-written melancholy segment that culminates in a breathtaking, action-packed boss battle. Always intrigued by Yoko Taro’s story-telling prowess, we had the opportunity to ask the creator a few questions about this chapter and his approach to lore in the NieR series…  The Mermaid chapter is very reminiscent of The Little Mermaid novella in Grimoire Nier.
