Wraith (Intellect, Order) is a graduate of the special operations program Echelon, and was apprenticed to the only other graduate, Kallari.

  • Back it up! (E/Circle) – Mark an enemy Hero to warp them back to where they were moments ago.

Paragon New Heroes Incoming

What’s Up PlayStation Nation!

At long last paragon players have been dying for some new ranged heroes, and starting next month, April 4th to be exact our prayers will be answered. Today Epic Games teased two new heroes in a blog post. “Morigesh” and “Revenant” are the upcoming heroes, Morigesh was shown at the past GDC, while all we got for Revenant is concept art.

Morigesh is a powerful spirit completely focused on destroying The Fey. The Bathuu, an ancient drowned forest of Zechin where Morigesh’s spirit resides has been in a conflict with the neighboring forest of Amyyrn, home of The Fey. The Amyyrn spirits sent The Fey into the world in order to stop the destruction of nature and Morigesh watched carefully, waiting for her time to act.

When The Fey traveled to Agora, Morigesh knew it was her time to strike.

She found a woman who had wandered too close to the edge of the drowned forest and stole her body. With this new vessel, Morigesh went out into the world, sought out a portal to Agora and went through in pursuit of the Fey.

Her backstory certainly has us excited, her gameplay even more so…you don’t want to be that doll in her hand — trust us.

We’re going to save the back story for the other new Hero coming next month, Revenant. Instead let’s focus on the fact that Revenant will be our first ranged Marauder in quite some time, nearly a year to be exact. At this very moment, we’re tightening up gameplay and working through the last stretch of art, animation and FX. Revenant is not the type of Hero you want to meet in a dark alley, he’ll take you to another realm. So when the time comes, you’ll definitely want to be ready!

PS4 System Software Update 4.50 Features Detailed

What’s Up PlayStation Nation!

Today Sony revealed new details on firmware update 4.50 (codename Sasuke), and if you signed up for the beta program a couple months back be sure to check your email as beta invites will be sent out today. Sony said their will be more features announced at a later date but today they revealed some highly requested features like external HDD support,  and custom wallpapers. Get the full details below:

External HDD Support

It’s easy to upgrade the HDD that came with your PS4, but if you’re still looking for more storage space on the console, we’ve got you covered. With this update, you have the option to store content to an external HDD. Just plug a USB 3.0 HDD into your PS4, and voilà, you now have more space on the console.

This is compatible with HDDs up to 8TB in size. You can download and install applications directly to your extra storage, and the saved contents are easily manageable through the settings menu.

Also, all the applications saved in the external HDD will appear in the Content Launcher of the Home Screen so it’s easy to keep track of what apps you launched recently.

Custom Wallpapers

This update adds the ability to set your favorite in-game screenshot as the background image for PS4’s home screen. Drop-shadows on text, and the option to dim the Function Area, will help keep the system icons and texts on the home screen clearly visible even if the background image you selected is super bright.

You can also edit screenshots using Photo Mode in Sharefactory to make your one-and-only custom wallpaper.

Quick Menu Refresh

As you may know, in the last system update we overhauled the PS4 Quick Menu feature (the menu that appears after a long press of the PS button on DualShock 4).

This update brings additional improvements to make it even more accessible. Now the Quick Menu will cover even less of your gameplay screen, and you’ll be able to access handy Party features via Online Friends, like creating new parties, inviting friends, and joining parties, without transitioning to the separate Party app. The goal is to keep you in the game — and not stuck in menus.

Simplified Notification List

Before this update, the Notifications app had a variety of tabs on the left-hand side, like Game Alerts, Downloads, Uploads, and more. We’ve condensed all of the tabs to a single simplified list, making it easier to see all of your notifications all at-a-glance.

You can also quickly access the Notification settings from the Options Menu to turn off or customize which pop-up notifications appear on your screen, so you’re only being notified about your top priorities.

Post on PlayStation Network Activity Feeds

We’re adding the ability to post directly into the Activity Feed, which appears in a variety of places across the console, including What’s New. Under What’s New, you’ll see a new option to post things like text, screenshots, and gifs directly into your Activity Feed. You can also tag games or other users to make sure they don’t miss your post. It’s a great way to show off your greatest triumphs.

Tying into to this new feature, Live from PlayStation will show screenshots that users uploaded to PSN as a Public Activity, so you can show off your best gameplay moments not only to your friends, but to users around the globe.

3D Blu-rays on PlayStation VR

If you’re a fan of 3D movies, and you own PlayStation VR, we’ve got good news — this update adds the ability to view 3D movies in stereoscopic 3D directly on the PS VR headset. Grab some popcorn and enjoy!

There are more features included in 4.50, so make sure to keep an eye out for additional info, including launch timing, in the weeks to come.
