Hey everyone, Dylan Cuthbert here from Q-Games and I’m excited to reveal that PixelJunk Eden 2 is coming to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4!

This year marked the 15th anniversary of the PixelJunk series, which started way back in 2007 with our first release on PlayStation 3. We’re going all out for the anniversary celebrations, with our party-brawler PixelJunk Scrappers Deluxe coming to PlayStation on July 27, and now PixelJunk Eden 2 following suit later this year. Safe to say, it’s a very good time to be a PixelJunk fan!

Gardens of Eden

If you’re new to the PixelJunk Eden series, I want to share a quick introduction to the mesmerizing world we’ve created. Devised by the game’s director and celebrated multimedia composer Baiyon, the world of Eden is a true exploration of life, color and sound. Huge gardens hold secrets entwined within other-worldly plant life as the world around you changes based on your actions. The gardens expand, grow and transform visually as you delve deeper into their depths, searching for pollen and hidden treasures.

PixelJunk Eden 2 swings onto PlayStation 5

It’s been over 10 years since PixelJunk Eden first arrived on PlayStation, and we’ve been working hard to develop this brand new experience on PS5 as a sequel to the much-loved original. PixelJunk Eden 2 brings with it new Grimps, gardens, features and spices to enhance the gameplay and deliver the ultimate trip. Make sure to check out today’s brand new trailer to catch a glimpse of what to expect!

Customize your journey

Jump, spin and swing to explore each level and whilst doing so, you’ll see the landscape transform and oscillate as you play. New abilities are unlocked along the way by meeting an array of Grimps with different personalities and abilities, so you never know who you’re going to bump into. 

You can play as over 20 different Grimps and select from 40 spices to create hundreds of starting combinations, each providing a unique experience. Grimp Abilities range from unlimited jumping abilities to boosted pollen collecting, and when paired with the one-time-use spices make for a customisable adventure that puts you in control. This wide variety of stages, Grimps and blooms provide a hypnotic backdrop to the alluring electronic soundtrack.

New Fate/Samurai Remnant gameplay showcases a spectacular fight for The Holy Grail

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

My name is Ryota Matsushita, and I’m the director of Koei Tecmo’s upcoming action-RPG, Fate/Samurai Remnant.

The Fate series tells the story of the Holy Grail War, in which seven Masters summon Servants — historic Heroic Spirits from the East and West — to battle over the Holy Grail, a magical object that can grant any wish.

The original story became a huge hit in Japan as an adventure game, and has since been adapted into an animated TV series and movie series, with the stories of the characters whose fate is affected by the Holy Grail War depicted in each work gaining a strong following.

The latest title in the series, Fate/Samurai Remnant, is set in 17th century Japan, and involves players fighting in a new Holy Grail War –the Waxing Moon Ritual – as a Master, the samurai Miyamoto Iori.

New Fate/Samurai Remnant gameplay showcases a spectacular fight for The Holy Grail

A Holy Grail War full of secrets and unpredictability

Fate is a series that requires some creativity when introducing its appeal to friends, especially if you want to avoid spoilers, as the secrets that color the story are themselves a part of its charm.

First of all, each Servant is not known by their actual name. This is because each Servant is a renowned historical figure, and if their true identity were to be known by the enemy, their anecdotes would reveal their battle style and weaknesses. 

Their battles are also not fought fair and square in a Colosseum, with the right to participate unfairly taken away from the participants after a succession of unfair developments unfold, involving conspiracy and deceit!

In Fate/Samurai Remnant, the protagonist, Miyamoto Iori, is caught up in such an unfair battle against his own will. Iori is attacked in the middle of the night at his home by Rider, a participant in the ritual, and is nearly killed in the first battle. He then summons a Saber class Servant.

Scorn creeps on to PlayStation 5 later this year

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Greetings everyone! I’m Jovan, Technical Artist at Ebb Software. The whole team here found joy in bringing you nightmarish experiences that will fully immerse you into somber tapestries. And today we’re excited to reveal that our first game, Scorn, will come to Playstation 5 later this year.

Scorn creeps on to PlayStation 5 later this year

Many of you here may be new to Scorn, so for those less familiar with the game, you are about to experience a horrific adventure like no other. Trapped and stranded in a strange biomechanical world, you must make your way through a civilization in decay, now inhabited with twisted and grotesque creatures. While you will be able to wield various weapons in the game, Scorn is not a shooter, and each encounter can quickly turn deadly. Ammo and life are scarce, and your wits will often advise you to avoid direct confrontation.  Instead, to progress through this mesmerizing labyrinth, you will have to revive and activate abandoned contraptions, part machine, part flesh, all horror.

We like to compare it to the experience of a nightmare. Most often, nightmares are described as strong subjective experiences that can be intensely distressing and frightening, eliciting emotional responses in dreamers, and causing feelings of fear, anxiety, and terror. Scorn tries to offer these emotions to its players in a very subtle manner through a somber atmosphere and its gloomy corridors.

Immersive power of PS5

As we were developing the game for PlayStation 5, we finally had the opportunity to tap into the potential of the DualSense wireless controller to immerse you even further in this twisted world, extending the synesthetic experience of Scorn. It allows us to deepen the player’s immersion and to let the whole world “breathe” in a new way. Since there is no spoken dialogue in the game, we have put a strong emphasis on environmental storytelling, hence haptics are a great addition to this peculiar audio-visual experience. 

The main character in the game interacts with the world mostly by using his hands. Most of these interactions are also painful for the character. That’s where haptics comes into play. The imagery offered to the player’s eyes is painful by itself, but we wanted to increase this feeling by giving a sensation to the hands holding the controller. Players are also able to feel the directions of haptics (left or right hand), further adding to the experience.

From the smallest interaction, such as feeling the low ru
