News | Sony announces part of the line-up of the new PlayStation Plus

Sony has announced part of the line-up of the renewed PlayStation Plus. Finally more clarity about which games subscribers can expect.

The renewed PlayStation Plus has three different subscription forms. Essential for 8.99 euros per month and which is more or less PlayStation Plus as it is now and gives access to online gaming and a few free games per month. With Extra for 13.99 euros per month you’ll also receive about four hundred PS4 and PS5 games, although new PlayStation exclusives will not appear immediately. Finally, Premium for 16.99 euros per month must also contain more than three hundred classic PlayStation games and offer the demos mentioned above. The updated service will be available in the Netherlands from June 22.

Sony revealed some of the games that will be on the updated service on PlayStation Blog today. Sony specifically mentions that it concerns a selection of the planned games for the service. Some PSOne and PSP games are getting a revamped interface with menus that allow players to save and rewind gameplay at any time.

News | New Assassin's Creed Valhalla patch fixes several bugs

Ubisoft released a new patch for Assassin's Creed Valhalla yesterday.

Patch 1.10 fixes several bugs in the game. There were a number of bugs that prevented quests from being completed, for example, because an NPC did not go where it should go.

Furthermore, the balance of the game has also been adjusted. The strength of enemies can now be up to 51 points below that of the player, and when one is stronger than bosses in the game, the power of bosses is adjusted to the level of the player. Finally, the patch already adds support for the upcoming Settlement expansion and an upcoming limited Christmas event called Yule Season. Details on these elements have yet to be announced. Ubisoft has summarized the content of the patch on its website.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set in the ninth century and features Norway and England as playable locations. Valhalla introduces new features, including the ability to build your own settlements and gain power and influence. Also, players can now use a different weapon in each hand. It is also possible to play as a female character, just like in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The game is out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. A free upgrade for Xbox Series X, Series S and PlayStation 5 is also available.

News | Watch Dogs Legion trailers show the story and additional content

Ubisoft has released two new trailers of the upcoming Watch Dogs Legion, which focus on the story and additional content.

Watch Dogs Legion is set in a future version of London, in which society is closely watched by the government. Players can be attacked by drones, but also deploy drones themselves, for example to spy or to fly around. Unique to the game is that players can in principle recruit all characters around the game world for their resistance group. These characters can then be controlled at any time.

Another trailer provides more information about both free and paid content coming to the game. For example, on December 3, a free online multiplayer is coming to the game. Players can roam freely through the game world with the four of them and do various cooperative missions. A PvP mode called Spiderbot Arena will also appear on that day, in which spider-like robots compete against each other in a deathmatch. New missions, new characters and a New Game Plus mode will also appear in 2021.

Paid content is also coming to Watch Dogs Legion through the Season Pass. For example, Bloodline, a new story about Aiden Pearce – the main character from the first Watch Dogs, appears. Additional DedSec missions and new characters will also be available.

Watch Dogs Legion will be released on October 29 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Epic Games Store, Uplay and Google Stadia. The game will also be available on Xbox Series X / S on November 10 and on PlayStation 5 on November 19. People who purchase the game on the current generation of consoles can upgrade it on the next-gen consoles at no cost.

News | PlayStation 5 fan will be quiet compared to PS4 fan

The fan of the PlayStation 5 is said to be very quiet compared to the fan in the PlayStation 4.

Japanese publications have gone hands-on with the PlayStation 5, and 4Gamer reports after the hands-on that the upcoming console’s fan makes very little noise. This is striking, as the fan in the PlayStation 4 is known for its clearly audible sound.

4Gamer reports that the console remains silent even when playing graphically demanding games like Godfall. The PlayStation 5 was tested by the release in a room that was at room temperature. During game play, the air coming out of the console was not noticeably warm. “We could barely hear the rotating fan noise.”

“I noticed that the sound the console made while it was on is very quiet,” they continue at 4Gamer. “I quickly forget because I focus on gameplay, but the console didn’t make a roaring noise when I got close to it. The PS4 fan is much more noticeable when the console has to work hard – the one in the PlayStation 5 is much less noticeable. “

The PlayStation 5 will be available on November 19th

Guide | Connecting a hard drive to your PlayStation 4: this is how it works

Whichever model you have, the PlayStation 4's internal storage memory isn't quite up to par for games that keep getting bigger. In this article we explain how to connect and use an external hard drive in combination with a PS4 (Pro).

It has been possible for a while to connect external hard drives to a PlayStation 4 , the regular model, the Slim model and the Pro version. These consoles come with 500GB or 1TB of storage space. That is a lot more than we encountered in consoles of the previous generation, it’s often not enough to store many games on it. You may be able to install dozens of smaller titles on it, but now we come across games of around 80GB more often than we would like. Not only does it take a long time for that content to be downloaded, it’s also the case that the content must be able to be installed. Add to that the fact that you usually spend more than 100 GB on all sorts of things before you set up the console, and you quickly come to the conclusion that you need an external drive to keep your collection complete. You can also install another, bigger internal HDD or SSD drive in the PS4 for more space, but we will not discuss that option here. We are looking purely at connecting external hard drives.

Before we can start, it is useful to know a number of things. You can use any hard disk with a USB 3.0 connection in combination with the PlayStation 4. It also doesn’t matter which USB connection you use. The hard drive must have at least 250 GB of storage space. Furthermore, the PS4 supports up to 8 TB of space. Keep in mind that the PlayStation 4 already takes up some space for preparing the disk, so you have already lost some space , this varies per disk. Also, the PS4 can only recognize one external drive at a time. You should also remember that the PS4 will format the drive before use.

That means that you cannot use that disc for other things or transfer files from PC to PS4 with it. You can only use it in combination with the PS4. In addition, the hard drive must be connected directly to the USB port of the PlayStation 4. You cannot connect it via a USB hub, because then it will not work. One last point: it doesn’t matter whether the hard drive has its own power cable or not. Mine, for example, gets its power from the console.

Selected hard drive? Good, then we can start. You connect the drive to one of the USB ports on the console. The regular PS4 has two on the front, while the Pro has one on the front and two on the back. When you mount the drive, you will immediately receive a message from your PlayStation 4 that the drive is not recognized. Don’t panic, that’s normal. Because we still have to format it. That is simpler than you think, because in principle it goes without saying. Below a short step-by-step plan:

  • On the home screen, go to Settings
  • Then go to Devices and press USB storage devices.
  • In the next screen, indicate that you want to format the attached drive.

And that’s it. It takes about a minute to get everything ready, but it works immediately after that. Now you can find the external drive under the Storage heading in Settings. The drive is also automatically set as the place where new games and apps are installed. You don’t have to look far for a reason to keep it that way: games on an external hard drive are loaded faster due to the better connection between both devices than the connection between the game console and the internal hard drive.

If you prefer to set the internal hard drive as the default storage location, select the internal drive with the Options button on your controller and then press the cross on your controller. The same applies if you want to set the external disk as the default location: press Options on the disk and press the cross again. By the way, do not disconnect the hard drive when the PlayStation 4 is on, as this may cause data loss.
