Masquerada: Songs and Shadows Coming to PS4 in 2016



Playstation Experience is just around the corner, so more and more announcements are dripping through. The latest to arrive is Masquerada: Songs and Shadows, an isometric 2.5D RPG from Witching Hour Studios.

Taking inspiration from the tabletop classic Dungeons and Dragons, Masquerada uses the different arts to create its combat environment including that of dance and song, as well as a focus on sports.

With a desire from Witching Hour Studios on a better story and combat, some staple RPG facets such as a traditional experience system and any kind of inventory have been removed to achieve a more enjoyable experience.

The idea of death is ever-present in the game, as the developers explain,

The team rallied around this core idea and gave it a spine with gameplay inspired by childhood favorites like Baldur’s Gate, Neverwinter Nights, and Dragon Age. Tactical Pause was the first thing we talked about. It gave our combat depth, and also the added bonus of allowing people to pace how they’d like to experience Masquerada.

Masquerada: Songs and Shadows is slated for release sometime in 2016 and will be available on Playstation 4.


Playstation Experience is held from December 5th-6th 2015 and any Single Player news coming from the exhibition will be available at OnlySP, along with any other news and features you will need. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter (@Official_OnlySP) to be the first to know.



Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware



FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
