Techland Publishing released what they call a couch co-op shooter over the weekend dubbed God's Trigger for PlayStation 4 complete with a PS4 launch trailer video from Developer One More Level below.
On this Easter Sunday get set to grab a friend, become an angel and demon duo and save the day with more from Techland Community Manager Jakub Szrejter below, to quote:
There are a lot of amazing multiplayer experiences out there that let you have a great time with friends while exploring new universes, taking on nasty aliens together, or going up against each other in the search for victory.
These days it mostly requires being in different places on different consoles, though — personally I like the kind of game you can play with someone while sitting next to them on the couch, where you can grab a beer and take on the world side-by-side (and shout at your friend in person as they let you die in a hail of bullets again).

It's Konami's 50th anniversary this year, and today their Digital Entertainment Senior Public Relations Specialist Tommy Williams announced they're bringing some retro games to PS4 including Arcade Classics Anniversary Collection (out now on PS Store), Contra Anniversary Collection and Castlevania Anniversary Collection arriving this May 16th on PlayStation Store.
To quote from their official announcement: In addition to the already announced Castlevania, Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, Castlevania II Belmont's Revenge and Super Castlevania IV, the four titles completing the collection are:
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.
