Rise of the Resistance Full Ride Video

With Disney attempting to recover after the lackluster opening and subsequent performance of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, it is no surprise we are seeing full ride videos from the Rise of the Resistance media/blogger event in Walt Disney World today. Theme parks often ask bloggers to refrain from posting full ride footage for fear of spoiling surprises for upcoming guest attendees. Not in this case, which means Disney is really pushing this hard in an effort to drum up interest in the withering area of both WDW and Disneyland.

SPOILER WARNING – Full ride-through of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance – SPOILER WARNING!

 

The Climb Out for Oculus Quest

FRANKFURT, Germany – Dec. 3, 2019 – Today Crytek is bringing the thrill of extreme free solo rock climbing to Oculus Quest with The Climb. The adrenaline-packed climbing game allows players to experience the rush of dangerous solo climbs in stunning, hyper-realistic settings from the comfort of almost anywhere with the incredible freedom offered by the completely wireless Oculus Quest. The Climb is available now for $29.99 in the Oculus Store and supports cross-buy, meaning players who already own The Climb on Oculus Rift will receive a copy for Quest for free (and vice versa).

Experience the ultimate in extreme sports: go beyond the point of no return and scale deadly cliff faces unaided, with three locations, tutorials, a practice wall, and six intense bouldering routes to beat. In Tourist mode, players can explore the expansive settings with simplified game mechanics to discover new routes, show friends and family, or just enjoy the scenery. Meanwhile, The Climb’s asynchronous multiplayer mode allows climbers to compete against other players’ ascents and send challenges to their friends.

The Climb’s three settings give climbers a variety of landscapes to explore—Alps, Bay and Canyon—each painstakingly created based on real-world locations. For example, Canyon takes inspiration from the geography of the Grand Canyon, drawing upon wider natural and cultural cues from across the U.S. and combining iconic elements to create an immersive blend of sights, sounds and adrenaline-pumping challenges. By night, fireworks from a music festival accompany the breathtaking ascents, while daylight reveals endless vistas marked by winding rivers, mysterious mine shafts and jets performing dramatic formation flyovers. The heat will be on as players feel the scale of the environment, the vertigo of the height and the challenge of the competition to achieve the best times on the leaderboards.

“From the very first prototype for The Climb, we knew that climbing and VR were the perfect combination. Virtual reality allows you to try something most people could never experience in real life—and with just as intense an adrenaline rush as the real thing,” said Producer Fatih Özbayram. “The Climb is so much fun to play on Oculus Rift, and the Quest offers even more freedom to players. No strings—or cables—attached!”

To complete The Climb’s host of vertical challenges, players will have to master different grip types, balance speed against stamina, and discover routes and shortcuts. More than 100 achievements are up for grabs as players unlock custom watches, gloves and wristbands, while amazing visual payoffs reward the completion of every ascent, demonstrating the power of CRYENGINE and VR.

Arise: A Simple Story Launch Trailer

December 3, 2019 — Techland Publishing today announced that Arise: A Simple Story is now available as a digital download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Epic Games Store. A beautiful and deeply moving platform adventure game, Arise is Barcelona-based developer Piccolo Studio’s first game to ever be released.

Arise invites players to take the first step on a journey into the afterlife. The game is a heartfelt tale of an old man’s life, interwoven with love and loss, through the symbolic landscapes of his memories and a unique traversal mechanic that allows players to manipulate time in single player or light cooperative play. As each chapter represents a pivotal moment from the protagonist’s past, Arise’s touching love story will take the old man—and the players themselves—on an impassioned emotional rollercoaster of empowering highs and visceral lows.

Arise is artistically enchanting with beautiful landscapes and an emotional soundtrack composed by BAFTA Award winning composer David García.

“Arise is a deep narrative, carefully crafted to transcend both the literal and metaphorical. We travel together with an old man across artistically stunning landscapes, each of which represents a crucially poignant moment of his life, lush with love and loss,” said Alexis Corominas, one of the founders of Piccolo. “We hope players will find themselves walking alongside him on a path of self-reflection, and, with each step, relate to the heartfelt magic in his story. We can’t wait for the players to discover what—or whom—they and the old man will find throughout the journey.”

Piccolo was established by three friends who quit their corporate jobs to pursue their long-time dream of creating handcrafted video games. Piccolo, Italian for “small,” is a tight-knit, 15-person strong team.

Arise is now available as a digital download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Epic Games Store for $19.99 USD. This title has an ESRB rating of “E” for everyone.
