The idea of holding The Banner Saga in your hands and utilising both PS Vita’s PlayStation controls and its touch surfaces while being able to move about freely in the real world is something we’re really keen on developing and seeing in action in 2015.

The Banner Saga is a game you might have heard of, as it was kickstarted with much success in 2012. Finally in 2014 it was released for PC and received high praise for its art, story and turn-based combat. In 2015 it will get a release for PS4 and PS Vita! The game itself is a tactical RPG set in a fantasy world heavily influenced by vikings and Norse mythology. This hand-painted viking world is for some reason falling apart, and heroes gather together to battle this ancient thread called The Dredge. You set out on a journey through the world by forming a caravan. You will need to manage this caravan, keep people fed and happy, while taking on quests and training your troops, and so on.

Some gameplay can be found here.

Game: Lords of the Fallen
Developer: Deck 13, CI Interactive
Publisher: Square Enix
Release: Released 2014
Genre: Action RPG

 

 

 

 

Convicted for a multitude of sins, Harkyn refuses to live by rules he doesn’t respect. When the Rhogar return, Harkyn and his warden, Kaslo, set off to find their missing ruler Antanas. Now, Harkyn must draw upon the very sins that landed him in prison to defeat the deamon army and face the wrath of an angry god.

 

Lords of the Fallen is a Fantasy RPG for the PS4 that reminds a lot of Dark Souls. Some might even say that it is a Dark souls clone. This means the focus is on high difficulty and challenging bosses. You play as Harkyn, a convict who is set free to combat a bunch of gods intent on destroying human kind. He will have to travel to Rhogar, a demonic dimension, to fight against the Rhogar lords who are the gods commanders. If you die in battle, your ghost will remain at your corpse for a short while. You will have to reach your ghost in time in order to regain the XP you lost when you died. Classes available are Warrior, Cleric and Rogue. There is of course also tons of weapons, armor and items to find and equip. You can watch gameplay here.
