Open world horror. That's it for now.

Last thing I need on my doorstep are Sony assassins.

Dunno who Bend are but the idea of an open world horror sounds rather intriguing and, to my knowledge, hasn't been done before.

they make handheld versions of some of Sony's first party IPs. I believe this will be their first original console release

Sony Bend is also the team responsible for the Syphon Filter games (back when they were known as Eidetic studios).

It'll be their first original console game since the PS2 days though.

Bend developed Uncharted: Golden Abyss for the Vita. It was a launch title and it still remains as one of the best games for the system. BTW, it was not a port, but a whole new Uncharted adventure.

Little late, but good source of infos

http://www.bendstudio.com/games

Also, looking back at the end of 2013, here's a nuget that Shu Yoshida let out that would tend to confirm Shinobi's leak.

Quote:
The most interesting comment pertained to Syphon Filter developer Sony Bend, however, when the likeable executive pointed out that players should prepare to “panic”.
And you have to go back to October 2013 to see that indeed Bend has apparently been working on a next gen (PS4) title:

The eagle-eyed folks over at NeoGAF uncovered the Linked In profile of Rick Stalder, a senior user interface artist who’s working on an unannounced title for the impending system out of the team’s Oregon-based office.

I really hope it's not zombies. I hope it's more of an I Am Legend type of thing (the Matheson book, more than the movie) where you live in a world of vampires or something. Let the Last of Us and Walking Dead and H1Z1 and Dead Rising and etc. have the zombies for now.

IA. I wish more games did vampires. Infamous FoB was great for that but I want a game that fully embraces this concept. Its been a long while since the Legacy of Kain series. A game more grounded in reality with a premise around vampires sounds very interesting

Personally I'd love to see something that was a cross between the old White Wolf Vampire/Werewolf/Mage stuff or the True Blood stuff and the more recent Zombie apocalypse stuff.

Those monsters aren't as mindless/virus-like as zombies, but it would be neat to see a world with all the monsters come out, society collapses as a result, and then you're dealing with a post apocalyptic "humans aren't the top of the food chain" with a little more room for subtly and intelligence.

I Just need my Dying Light! Lol. I've been a fan of zombie movies since I was a kid. And in recent years The Walking Dead. And have never played a zombie game. So can't wait to actually, virtually at least, experience trying to survive a zombie plague.

But yeah, I'm curious as to what this game is about. Open world horror, it's got to be fun.

Red Dead Redemption's Undead Nightmare is one of the best single player zombie games made. There were rumors of a GTAV Undead Nightmare game being planned, but I'm pretty sure they're just rumors.

I read Dying Light will be faster paced than Dead Island is. Dead Island was a very tense game, though the freedom to explore was limited, and a good kick was often your best weapon most times.

That sounds good. Vincent Price's Last Man on Earth captured the idea of the book pretty well. They were walking vampires that hid during the day and came out to attack at night. He would board up his home while they kept him awake all night. During the day, he'd scavenge the empty city.

Sony Bend originally were responsible for the Syphon Filter Games way back on the PS1. They were great games for those times, especially the first and 3rd one. Gabe Logan was a great character they ditched in the Syphon Filter PS2 game, and after that, the series was forgotten except for the handheld editions and later ports.

I hope it's true open world and the interiors aren't so often reserved for "Missions only" as they did with Watch Dogs and many other open games.


I'd like an open world horror game with a day/night cycle that resembles the horror style of the classic Deadly Premonition, only with better graphics.

I saw the Last Man on Earth (I can't remember if it was Mystery Science Theatre 3000 or just on the Science-fiction channel when I was a kid) before I read I Am Legend. I remember thinking that the plot of the story was oddly familiar as I read it (though I preferred Matheson's story, since I'm a book nerd English Major and am one of those "the book was better" guys).

Not much of a fan of Deadly Premonition, but I like your idea of a fully open world game quite a bit.
