This is new!
Adding a touch of variety to the shooting is a slow-motion mechanic called Black Sight, which ties into the Black Water, a substance the knights drink to heighten their senses and restore health. (Mallory drinks some from a vial after he's shot in the neck.) During Black Sight you can flick the thumb stick to quickly target enemies faster than they can react. You can't use it all of the time - you build up a meter as you kill enemies - and perhaps you wouldn't want to use it all of the time even if you could, because Ready at Dawn teases that the Black Water makes the knights less human somehow.

Love the atmosphere and music, presentation is really stunning. Is that laggy video from Friday available in good quality today?

Also, glad its single player personally. They can concentrate on nailing the game/story/characters in this game, and perhaps add co-op to a sequel. They are a small team and this is a new IP afterall.

The Logo / Title should be waaaay smaller and more at the bottom. Kinda ruins the nice artwork IMO.

In the GameTrailers video, Ru says words to the effect of "we haven't delved too much into who the half-breeds are yet, but hopefully in the near future we'll be able to give more info about them."

E3 baby.

I like how the delay post has like 4-5 pages already, can tell what matters more to people.
Game looks cool.

Easily the most interesting aspect of the demo - incredible visuals aside - is the sole gun we used. Instead of firing conventional bullets it shoots a rapid-fire stream of thermite - an explosive mix of metallic ingredients. But the thermite is harmless by itself, simply dousing enemies in a cough-inducing powder and doing very little damage - until you shoot the gun's secondary projectile, a flair.

The flair ignites the thermite, triggering an impressive eruption of hot sparks that fizz and pop, burning your enemies to a toast, all the while even further demonstrating the PS4's GPU particle physics as the stream of yellow sparks shower down, bouncing convincingly off of the scenery below.

But it's not all for show. The gun and its clever physics allow for some intriguing shooting strategies because it doesn't force players to use its two ammo types in any particular order. For example you can douse a specific target with thermite before lighting him up with a flair. Alternatively, if you face multiple targets hidden behind cover, you can shoot a flair at a wall behind them, where it will stick, and follow up with thermite that will bounce off the wall and rain down on your hidden and unsuspecting victims.

Rumors often come true.

It's the same stuff from the delay rumour thread which was the same stuff from the stream thread. It's painfully obvious what's going on there...

In any case, this stuff looks great. Can't wait to see more at E3.

Everyone should watch the GT footage. Lots of new stuff in there.

Need a gif of the Black Sight.

That clip of the slowmotion effect in the GameTrailers video looks amazing.

Someone should do a gif of it. Please. Anyone?

Once inside, we're given our first glimpse of some explorative gameplay mechanics. In the impressively-detailed room a subtle on-screen icon indicates that we're able to pick up and inspect a piece of paper on a table, using the left analogue stick to rotate the player's hand left and right to get a good look at the artifact.

On this occasion the document, which appeared to show a map of some sort, was of no relevance to the demo, but its presence in the demo suggests that players may be required to investigate environments to uncover clues or secrets that could contribute to the their progress through the story.

So what's with all this talk of downgrades, the game still looks friggen amazing. Seems it'll knock inFamous of its pedestal

It may just be me, but I am really excited by the idea Jack the Ripper is all but onfirmed to be a character in this game, as well as other characters of the time period. Half Breeds are going to be awesome, but the lore of this game just got a lot more interesting.

Man they have been harping on about the lore,history and setting, its nice they are staring to talk more about gameplay.

It turns out that me and others were on the right lines about the dark water.

I expect this to play a lot like an uncharted/last of us game with some heavy rain QTE moments, anyone expecting anymore will be disappointed.Its not reinventing the wheel in anyway but will be a quality title with stunning visuals.

That Gametrailers interview is pretty great, the more I see and hear about this the better it looks.

Good job Sony let them take as long as they need, this one has loads of potential!

That gametrailers video was pretty informative

Also, Jack the Ripper is a werewolf

Taking bets.
