Fall Guys coming to PS5, going free for all, getting new modes, and more

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

That’s right, Fall Guys is going free for all and cross-play starting June 21, with a new PS5 version that enhances the bean-stumbling action. 

But before we dig deeper into what’s new, let’s take a look back on where we started… Can you believe that we launched Fall Guys all the way back in August 2020? A lot has happened in those two years, including some amazing collaborations and huge game-changing updates. I think Squads Mode has been the single biggest improvement to the game so far—it just felt like such a completely fresh way to play with a party without having to constantly drop out because someone from the dev team got eliminated in Round 1 again (not going to name any names here). It’s just such a great feeling to share the joy of a win with all your friends watching along!

Hitting the one year anniversary of Fall Guys’ launch was a really special moment. To have anyone take interest in our silly obstacle course bean game in the first place was an incredible honour, but to have a dedicated, passionate community celebrate a year of achievements in Fall Guys  is something else entirely. Development’s never smooth sailing but I’m incredibly proud of how the team has sustained and improved the game since the launch.

No PlayStation Plus membership required for online play.

Well, what’s new?

How long have you got? We have so many new features, obstacles, Rounds and more being added to Fall Guys in this new Season.

My personal favourite new in-game addition is Blast Balls for sure! As a design team we were looking for new ways to make final Rounds that give players more agency to go after each other and make some clever strategic plays. Blast Balls achieve that while still staying true to the core of Fall Guys—they’re funny, grounded in physics and perfect for creating highlight worthy clips.

We also have some incredible new Rounds being added, one being Hex-a-Ring. It’s basically a version of Hex-a-Gone that is being played on a rotating tube, you have to keep moving through layers of tiles while not falling off the rotating floor and not falling down into the slime! I’d be lying if I s

Tips for surviving and slaying in Evil Dead: The Game, out tomorrow

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Evil Dead: The Game serves up some delightfully gruesome violence and over the top moments that make for a bloody fun time, but it’s not all scream and no substance: there are many layers to the game and strategies to keep in mind. Whether you’re playing as the heroic Ash Williams and his friends, or as the vile and powerful Kandarian Demon, we’ve assembled our top tips to make sure that you get a helping (severed) hand. 

Top tips for Survivors:

For Survivors to win, it takes cunning strategy, synergistic teamwork and always being on your toes. You’ve got to keep a cool head and your eyes on the Necronomicon prize, all while your teammates are being possessed, Deadites are projectile vomiting at you, trees are swinging at you, and much more. Here are some tips for success:

Play as a team: A crew of four Survivors sticking together are much stronger than any single player going off on their own. They can also distribute the loot that they find between each other. They’re also less prone to being scared, and that’ll help keep your fear levels low!

Don’t forget to use the ping system to mark objectives, items, and locations to your teammates!  Whether you’re on voice chat or playing without it, communication via the ping system is key for success.

Choose your battles well: If you are together, you can go all in against Deadites and bosses and stand a chance to take them down. But if you are alone and the team is separated, it may be better to run away and live to fight another day.

Stealth is your friend: The Kandarian Demon can see you when your fear levels are high, when you enter a car, and when you shoot.  Preventing the demon from finding you quickly will enable you to advance in the early game without major issues.

  • High fear levels allow the Demon to see the Survivors on the minimap. This means it can get close to you and start the carnage.
  • High fear levels also allow the Demon to possess Survivors, controlling them and turning them against each other.
  • Find sources of light, like lamps or bonfires, and light them up to reduce your fear. 

Kandarian Demon Tips

Playing as the Kandarian Demon can be a lot of fun. You are an incorporeal evil entity – able to spawn Deadites, frighten Survivors and possess them, set traps, and lots of other diabolical deeds. But to consistently win as the Demon, it will take time and talent to master. Here are some key tips to put you on the path to demonic domination:

Learn the map: Knowing the key points of the map makes it easier and faster for you to find the Survivors.

  • The Cleaver County map is huge. Focus on key points to search for Survivors. The center of the map, called Dead End, is a great place to start.

Divide the group: A single survivor dies easily. Scare them and bring them closer to your traps.

  • Evil Trees are a great way to slow down one of the Survivors and separate them from the group. Place traps or possess the Survivors, correctly timing the attacks to create distance between them.

Deathloop update includes new accessibility options, photo mode, and more

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Deathloop’s third major update is available today on PlayStation 5! Game Update 3 introduces a brand-new Photo Mode, added accessibility options, unique PlayStation 5 avatars and more, all for free. 

Read on for highlights on Photo Mode and the new accessibility options, with insights from members of the team at Arkane Lyon. 

Photo Mode 

Express yourself with a wide variety of filters, stickers, poses and other customization options in Deathloop’s brand-new Photo Mode. Available only in single-player, Photo Mode is accessible through the Pause menu in any map or by activating the Photo Mode shortcut. To enable the shortcut on PS5:  

  • Options > Controls > ‘Controller’ tab > Photo Mode Quick Access > Yes   
  • Once in-game, double tap the Create button (button to the left of the touchpad) on your DualSense controller to open Photo Mode

“This Photo Mode is such a great way to allow our players to get creative by using the unique art and levels of Deathloop,” says Producer Jeremy Leulier. “The only creative limitations are defined by our players’ imaginations. We’re very excited at Arkane to see how deep the players will dig into all of the different options and what they will come up with.” 

In addition to being able to select your filters and angles like a photography pro, you can swap between Colt and Julianna, change out your outfits and weapons (including the specific weapon variation and skin), and drop into over a dozen share-worthy poses. 

“One of our biggest challenges was to adapt Photo Mode for a first-person shooter where your character isn’t displayed apart from the hands and weapons,” explains Leulier. “We wanted to offer the best possible experience for this mode and took the time to playtest it thoroughly and even asked for insight from players who are experts in using different Photo Modes in games. We took so much pleasure testing Photo Mode that we added a lot of relevant options for the player to make it even more fun and funnier to use.” 

“Each time we release a game, Photo Mode has been one of the most requested features by the players,” adds Studio Director Dinga Bakaba. “Seeing how virtual photographers were able to make incredible shots in
