Monster Hunter Wilds: new gameplay details from today’s State of Play

Game Ace Pro 0 0

Greetings, PlayStation fans! Today during State of Play, we revealed some exciting new information for Monster Hunter Wilds. It’s been some time since we first announced the game last December, so the team is thrilled to show off our newest trailer to everyone. It’s still a small taste of things to come, but we hope you can pick up on one of the game’s main themes: “the living world.” Beyond the new trailer itself, we’d also like to introduce some of the monsters, characters, and even share some info about the hunter’s new mount. 

Monster Hunter Wilds: new gameplay details from today’s State of Play

Breathtaking Immersion

Every locale, monster, and person acts with their own thoughts and motivations, combining dynamically to bring an immersive and constantly changing Monster Hunter ecosystem to life.

This image shows two characters astride their mounts on a grassy field, observing a monster herd nearby.

When you encounter a large monster while out exploring a locale, you’ll be able to begin that quest seamlessly, allowing for deeper immersion. Your hunter will also engage other characters in fully voiced conversations, deepening your connection with the many people you’ll meet along the way.

Changing Environments

This image shows a night time scene of a herd of monsters resting.

In Monster Hunter Wilds, locales are dense, deep, and three-dimensional. Let’s start with the Windward Plains shown in the trailer, which is a vast, untamed land ready to be explored. While exploring this new locale, hunters will discover harsh environments contrasted by abundant landscapes teeming with life, and even extreme weather conditions that transform the locale in unexpected ways.

Astro Bot arrives on PS5 September 6

Game Ace Pro 0 0

Hi everyone! On behalf of Team Asobi, I have the immense pleasure to unveil our new game Astro Bot coming to PlayStation 5.

A video speaks a thousand words so please check out our first trailer to see the game in action.

Astro Bot arrives on PS5 September 6

Since making an appearance at the launch of PlayStation 5, Astro has introduced many players to the magic of PlayStation. We received a ton of heart-warming comments about how much fun the game was, how it utilized the DualSense wireless controller in fun ways and how it paid tribute to 25 years of PlayStation history. From the bottom of our robotic hearts, thank you very much for all your support!

We listened to your comments and now, Astro is back in a super-sized space adventure, his biggest to date.

This image shows Astro riding his Dual Speeder above the clouds. A flock of pink flamingos fly around him. Poking through the clouds in the distance are mountainous outcrops with green grass and pink trees at their top.

In this brand-new game, you will explore 6 galaxies and over 80 levels in search of Astro’s scattered crew. Hold on tight to your Dual Speeder and dive down to each unique planet, from lush forests, sandy beaches, hot volcanoes to more surprising locations such as a gigantic hourglass or the canopy of a singing tree!

In this image, Astro stands on a lush grassy field. Towering behind him is a thick trunked tree, adorned with a  mouth-like cavity and two glowing blue eyes which observe the tiny bot in front of it.

To get help on his mission, Astro can use over 15 new abilities offering unique play styles. As you would expect from an Astro game, these take full advantage of the DualSense controller, its haptic feedback and adaptive triggers so you can feel every little step along the journey. Among the many new powers, you will find Barkster, the Bulldog Booster that lets you air-dash and smash through enemies, metal and glass, the Twin-Frog Gloves that offer long-range punching and the ability to swing and the Giant Sponge that lets you suck up water from the environment to grow huge and cause massive (and slightly moist) destruction. Combined with improved Astro controls, these new powers take the Astro platforming experience to new heights, whil

Marvel Rivals is coming to PS5: Venom and Adam Warlock revealed, Closed Beta test announced for July

Game Ace Pro 0 0

Hey there, True Believers! It’s Stephen Wu here, Producer of Marvel Rivals. Today, we’re thrilled to confirm Marvel Rivals is coming to PS5 as well as drop out brand-new trailer, which reveals another two characters joining the roster day one: Venom and Adam Warlock! We know the players have been eagerly awaiting this news since we first unveiled Marvel Rivals back in March! For the CBT this July, we’ll be rolling out tests for the PS5 platform, so get your controllers ready!

I have to admit, developing Marvel Rivals has been a thrilling ride. For the NetEase team, pulling this 6v6 Super Hero Team-Based PVP Shooter from the vast House of Ideas into reality was never easy. But through relentless refinement and a true alliance with the Marvel Games team, we assembled a game of which we feel truly proud.

Super Powers Rather Than Abilities

We want every fan of Marvel Rivals to dive into a Super Hero world unlike ever before. You’re not just higher-dimensional beings controlling game characters, nor are you elite players pressing buttons at high APM — you ARE the heroes. We wanted to take these Super Heroes and push them like never before! Use Magneto to cast Metal Bulwark to protect your teammates from projectile damage. Choose Hela and call upon forces of Nastrond to annihilate your enemies. Choose Venom to tap into the power of the symbiote and devour your enemies or pick Adam Warlock and unleash the potential of quantum magic, establishing a soul bond with your teammates to charge ahead or resurrect your entire team. Better yet, leverage the power of flight by choosing Iron Man, Storm, and other flying heroes to suppress enemies using aerial combat techniques.

Heroes are split into three distinct roles based on their unique power inclinations: Vanguard, Duelist, and Strategist. You’re free to pick your preferred role and hero, teaming up with allies to create a versatile and dynamic lineup for battle.

Team-Up Abilities: A New Twist on Iconic Marvel Elements

In Marvel Rivals, the bonds and friendships that once lived only in the lore are brought to life on the battlefield through Team-Up Abilities, further enriching and changing your combat strategy. Magneto can receive a touch of Scarlet Witch’s chaos magic and use his giant steel sword to slash at enemies with a chaos energy wave. Hulk can enhance Iron Man’s Nano Armor, enabling it to emit incredibly powerful gamma energy infused in his Unibeam. Of course, the classic scene where Rocket Raccoon

Ballad of Antara is a world-bending action-RPG coming to PS5 in 2025

Game Ace Pro 0 0

Hi, I’m Yang Yang, head of Tipsworks Studio from Infoldgames. I’m honored to introduce our new game, Ballad of Antara, to the amazing PlayStation community. This grand, new action-RPG title is a new IP, created with the highest fidelity, and will be free to play. Please take a look at our reveal trailer below.

Ballad of Antara is a world-bending action-RPG coming to PS5 in 2025

For this new IP, we set out to create a vast world, both in geological scale and cultural variation. In the normal version of this world, common folk reside. In another version of the world, peculiar sightings and encounters await. We call this unimaginable part of the world “Para”. Fundamental essences of the living world are taken away and trapped inside the Para from the invasion of an ancient power, and that’s where our story begins.

This image show a large flower-like plant sitting on an island in the middle of a pond. The plant’s petals are withered and hardened. Rocky outcrops surround the pool. This image shows the Para version of the same location. The plant’s petals here are flourishing and boast a rich purple colour. The surrounding terrain is slightly different as well, the rocky outcrops joined by rocks floating in the air.

You’ll experience an adventure of two intertwined fates through exotic landscapes. For each new destination you travel to, you will explore a handcrafted gameplay space with intricate, exploration-oriented level design. Each destination has its own unique Para as their own unique essence is taken away, with drastically different biome, stories, heroes, and adversaries.

This image shows multiple figures in a snowy forest. All dress similarly - long, ragged robes, white hair that obscures their faces, and chains bound to their arms which seem to float upwards. This image shows a swor</div>

Honda Civic SiR・II (EG) ’93
(Can be purchased from Used Cars)

The top-grade 5th generation Civic balances speed with comfort.

The Civic, now equipped with a VTEC engine and much faster, passed the baton to the 5th generation model in September of 1991. The body was available in a 3-door hatchback, the newly christened “Ferio” 4-door saloon, and the 5-door shuttle. The car’s tagline called it the “Sports Civic”. Engine variety increased due to the further development of the VTEC system. The base models were equipped with the carbureted 1.3 L and 1.5 L, on top of these were the easy to drive 1.5 L SOHC VTEC and the more fuel efficient 1.5 L VTEC-E. 

The top of the line was crowned with SiR model, which featured the high performance 1.6 L DOHC VTEC. All cars used Honda’s new standard double wishbone suspension. The SiR model, which served as the face of the “Sports Civic” boasted 9.9 BHP more power than the previous generation, achieving 167.7 BHP. Also for the suspension, the spring rate, amount of suspension stroke, etc. were revised, and were set to be more sports oriented. As with previous models, the SiR aimed for lower weight through simplified equipment, while the SiR・II featured a full suite of comfort amenities such as automatic air conditioning, power windows, and a genuine leather wrapped steering wheel.

Honda NSX GT500 ’00
