Sony Unveils Three New Games For PlayStation 4
Blacklight Retribution and two other titles will be getting released on the PS4.
Sony has officially announced today that more games are set to be released on their upcoming console platform, the PlayStation 4. The new games coming to the platform will join the likes of The Witness, Watch Dogs, and Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, all of which have been confirmed as launch, or near-launch titles for the platform.
Sony credits the PlayStation 4's attractiveness as a platform to the myriad of options it provides for developers to publish on the PlayStation Network, including a flexible self-publishing process, a low barrier of entry, an accessible SDK, and various funding opportunities such as the PLayStation Pub Fund.
"We've got an incredible team on the ground that talks to developers every day, and these new games we're announcing are a direct result of the team's proactive outreach and focus on working with top independent developers," said Adam Boyes, vice president, publisher and developer relations, SCEA. "Our process and approach in working with developers has evolved to incorporate a lot of flexibility into the process, including the way we pursue and discover new talent, help them with funding solutions and work together to deliver their best games onto PlayStation platforms."
The new games unveiled for the PlayStation 4 are all independently developed games including Zombie Studios' Blacklight: Retribution, and Primal Carnage: Genesis from Lukewarm Media. Also joining the fray is Divekick, a fighting game. Trailers of the titles can be seen below.
Blacklight: Retribution is currently available as a PC-only title, and will be making a jump to the PlayStation 4 thanks to the aid of the PlayStation Pub Fund, which provides back-end financial and marketing support to independent developers like Zombie Studios.
The games will be talked about at Sony's PlayStation 4 press event at the Game Developers Conference 2013 tonight.
