Immortal Legacy: The Jade Cipher is now available on PS VR, and represents a heart-stopping mix of horror and first-person action exclusive to PlayStation VR where gamers can uncover how Chinese folklore shaped this action-horror tale by unearthing the disturbing truth behind an ancient Chinese legend!
Vivagames CEO Yao shared some additional details of their latest PlayStation title's origin on PS Blog, which can be found below alongside the Immortal Legacy: The Jade Cipher PSVR launch trailer video to quote:
The story of Immortal Legacy: The Jade Cipher is inspired by this story as well as other Chinese legends. In our story, Ksi is an emperor who, having conquered space, yearns to conquer time as well. He seeks immortality, and is willing to stop at nothing to attain it — even sacrificing his own people.
That search for immortality is just one reason that brings you to Yingzhou Island, located deep in the Dragon's Triangle.
In an exclusive meeting with Wired, Lead System Architect Mark Cerny (Twitter) revealed Sony's next-gen PS5 videogame console will feature GPU ray tracing, a specialized solid-state drive (SSD), 8K output, PS VR and PS4 backwards compatibility support as PlayStation 5 will include a disc-based system to ensure a gentle transition with multi-platform game releases... however, he also confirmed it definitely won't be released in 2019 stating it isn't an upgraded PlayStation 4 but instead will be a true next-generation machine!
To quote from IGN's summary of what's known on Sony's upcoming technology thus far:
Cerny explained that the console's CPU is a variant of the AMD Ryzen third generation, and that its GPU is a custom version of Radeon's Navi line. That GPU is capable of ray tracing, a high-performance graphical technique with some incredible results. As you'd expect, the console will also support 8K displays.
Cerny also showed off the power of the console's new solid state drive (SSD) with a practical demo. According to Wired, fast-traveling between locations in Insomniac's Spider-Man on a PS4 Pro took 15 seconds. Using a next-gen PlayStation devkit, the same action took 0.8 seconds.
This November 15th Star Wars fans can experience an all-new single-player story from Respawn Entertainment and EA in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on PlayStation 4!
One of the last surviving members of the Jedi Order after the purge of Order 66, Cal Kestis, is now a Padawan on the run who must do whatever it takes to survive as Imperial Inquisitors hunt him down as he seeks to restore the Jedi Order.
Below are some further details from EA Star Wars Community Engagement Specialist Jay Ingram (Charlemagne) alongside the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order PS4 trailer video reveal, to quote:
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is an upcoming third-person action-adventure game made by Respawn Entertainment and EA. On the heels of its reveal at Star Wars Celebration Chicago, we're giving the world its first look at the next major Star Wars title!
This single-player story puts players in the boots of Cal Kestis, a surviving Padawan in a post-Order 66 galaxy where the Jedi are considered traitors.
He states, to quote: "Here is some reversed code from the southbridge... this is where the data is read from the flash and sent over PCIe. This is the perfect place to modify the southbridge to change data for a correlation power analysis attack against the APU bootrom loading the second bootloader."
