PlayStation 4 is on the horizon! Many of you will have seen what we got up to at Gamescom and PAX – in fact it was a pleasure to see so many of you there showing your support for Second Son. We were so excited to be able to show you a tease of a brand new power and to reveal a new character in the game.
Launching early next year, the team over at Sucker Punch Productions have lots planned for Second Son over the next few months, so look out for more posts and videos from them.
Speaking of more, we decided to pack in some extra inFAMOUS excitement this month with the announcement of our pre-order offering – check out the new news!
At last! Wonderbook: Book of Spells went on sale around the world last month. It’s great to see lots of people have been studying hard to master spells and put their skills to the test.
To celebrate the release, and complete the series, our fourth and final ‘Making of’ video is here. Focusing on a large and significant part of the creative process – setting the game to music – our team at London Studio set about explaining the project they started working on over a year ago.
Alastair, Joe and Jim wrote the score from scratch, and then set about weaving the music and sound into the gameplay in one of the studio’s most complex audio projects to date. The live orchestral recording at Air Studios was the highlight of the development process for many, and we are pleased to be able to bring you a piece of the action here.
So, sit back and enjoy the making of the soundtrack to the Book of Spells…
The team at SCE London Studios worked hard to conjure up a truly amazing experience using the latest in augmented reality technology. Starting today, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in the world of Harry Potter and begin learning the art of spell-casting while using your PlayStation Move motion controller as your magic wand.
The book features new and original writing from J.K. Rowling, and will allow you to learn about the histories of some of the well-known spells from the Harry Potter series, as well as other interesting insights. (more…)
We are nearly a month from launch now – you can mostly tell that from the mix of excitement and exhaustion in our offices… but above all we cannot wait to bring this product to households from mid-November.
Of course, the book itself is from the world of Harry Potter – and is the result of our first creative collaboration with J.K. Rowling. Book of Spells is a spellbook that teaches a student wizard over 20 spells, including Lumos and Wingardium Leviosa. However, with this book you get much more than just that. (more…)
