The real appeal of gaming is that it offers unmatchable escapism, allowing you to perform feats that you may not otherwise get to experience in the real world. These may range from lifting the FA Cup in FIFA 14 to helming a pirate’s ship in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – or, in the case of upcoming PlayStation 3 and Vita torture-‘em-up Deception IV: Blood Ties, dismantling unsuspecting grunts in the most ghastly ways imaginable.
As already reported, the goal of the game – which is due out on 25th March in North America and 28th March in Europe – is to lay out a series of deadly traps and lure your pursuers into them. And if you purchase the title on Sony’s ageing home console, you’ll be able to upload clips of your ostentatious murder machines directly to YouTube. It’s probably not footage that you’ll want to share with your grandparents, but it’s refreshing that someone’s taking advantage of the PS3’s irritatingly underused video capture feature.
Don’t worry if you’re planning to skewer some polygonal punks on the platform holder’s portable system, though, as the handheld release will boast a custom touch-based interface and more. Furthermore, you’ll be able to share user-created missions irrespective of device. Are you finding yourself unnervingly attracted to this title’s disturbing premise, or do you think that it sounds a bit too gruesome for your tastes? Tear us to pieces in the comments section below.
