Novus Prime: Free Multiplayer Space Combat Game Comes to PlayStation Home

74 7

Calling all PlayStation Home residents! Reports of an impending attack on Central Plaza have come through the PlayStation Home Community Management office. Our friends over at Hellfire Games are asking you, the resistance, to report to the new Novus Prime space station. From there you will board a state-of-the-art fighter ship and engage the enemy in a free-to-play action multiplayer space combat game.

Form teams of up to four players and embark on a score of dangerous missions where you will employ cutting-edge weaponry in intense battles against massive fleets of foes. Purchase new ships, weapons, and upgrades from the workshop, customizing your fighters’ styling and gear. Take your avatars out into zero-G, floating freely while shooting the parasitic crawlers that drill into the station’s hull. The best pilots can even earn an exclusive animated officer’s jacket! Do you have what it takes to fight back the invaders? Head into PlayStation Home Thursday, December 2nd to join the fight!

The PlayStation Home Mall also gets an update this week with new clothing items from Konami’s DefJam Rapstar and DanceDance Revolution, additional Dragon’s Lair clothing and furniture items (pictured above), and Lockwood’s ridiculous(ly fun) Fish Tank Bubble Helmets (pictured below).

Finally, the PlayStation Home Community Theater is airing a new installment of the Hip Hop Gamer videocast this Thursday, which focuses on the recently released Gran Turismo 5. Also playing this week in the Theater are the latest episodes from The Tester Season 2 and Replay with Doc: Cast Offs (the latter of which rewards viewers with a special virtual item). Be sure to log in to PlayStation Home this week to grab the free The Tester 2 virtual item and watch these awesome new videos.

See you in Home!

  • First!! And sweet!! lol

  • 3rd even betten

  • Are we getting the PlayStation Plus Club here? And when can we expect the PlayStation Plus Burn Zombie Burn hat from 10/6? Thx LS.

  • Novus Prime looks pretty SWEET! Is it a timed event?

  • OK so is the Free Tester items in the Replay with DOC the same items we got before in Theater 6 of The TESTER2 shows? Or is this Reward with DOC a different Reward? Let us know… I already got the New Tester2 Reward today from Theater 6 for Tester Episode 5 so just wondering if there the same reward or maybe something different?

    Let us know…

    Thanks.

    • Please excuse the typo. Replay with Doc does not reward viewers with a virtual item. The Tester 2, however, does. Each episode of the Tester 2 that screens in Home comes with a special reward.

  • I thought we would be seeing Singstar content this week. Any word on when we might see it in North America?

  • Hudson DOLPHY SPACE Problem? Everytime i tried to enter the Hudson Dolphy Space today every time it froze my screen and had to turn off the PS3 everytime… So i say the Hudson Dolphy Space is BROKEN now and needs to be fixed tonight when Maintenance is going…

    So is this Problem at HUDSON getting fixed in tonights Maintenace? Let us Know?

    Thanks.

  • And I have to keep asking but can you give us some information as to when the Uncharted space and EA Complex will return to the Navigator?

  • SAY WHAT!?!?!? That actually looks FUN!!!

  • it’s the End of the Year for 2010 Last Month to see these?

    Can we get some NEW Street Fighter IV and TEKKEN costumes in Home before this year ends? It’s been way over a year now since anything has been added for either Street Fighter or TEKKEN…

    Can we get an update if there are gonna be more or has all contracts with Namco and Capcom for Home come to an End?

    Let us know…

    Thanks.

  • Also any word on if or when were gonna get back our Missing Item’s like the Tekken 6 Arcade and the Criss Angel Coffin Couch?

    Thanks.

  • Looking forward to the update. :)

    This new game will take me back to the old days where Home members got together to accomplish real missions like in Xi. Great job with the update. Hope more great stuff comes guys.

  • Posting images of new items in the Harbor Studio is a great idea. There are so many times when I and my friends have waited on an item because we don’t know how big it is. The visual reference really helps!

  • The ‘Novus Prime’ space looks very fun, especially the space walking part! Can’t wait!

  • Novus Prime looks sick :-). I like that Mech Costume they show in the video. I’m definitely going to be playing this game. I like the new Dragon’s Lair items also. Those will look good next to Singe and the Arcade Machine. Also, I have to agree with 12, any word on out Tekken 6 Machines yet? Up till this day, that is still my favorite Home Arcade Cab. My Arcade feels incomplete without it. Other than that, great update. I’ll be looking forward to it.

  • Hello Locust

    any word on or when EA Sports Complex Space will be returning?

  • is the Santa Clause GLASSES gonna make a return this year? Last Year they forgot to put on the Santa Claus GLASSES… SO my Santa is not Completed without his GLASSES? PLEASE!

    Also more UnCompleted items in the LucasArts Store under Star Wars… We still don’t have for Male The Clone Trooper GLOVES as a Seperate item so we can complete our Troopers… Also same with the Juno outfit for Star Wars She needs the Seperate Hair and Gloves as well so we can Complete her Outfit as well… They have these as Seperate item’s in EU Home so there is no good reason why USA Home doesn’t have these also?

    Please get those added too. Thanks.

  • Great looking update LS and staff. i like the little mini games you guys are comming out with. i have 1 Question though, will the rapstar and DDR items be clothing or other items or both O_O ty. again great job guys each and everyweek your are pounding out this Great content :D

    • DDR items are as follows:

      -Two animated shirts (one short sleeve, one long sleeve)
      -Animated bell bottom pants
      -Animated hat

      These items are for both men and women and are also available as a bundle.

      The RapStar items are a fitted cap, also available for both men and women.

  • can you give us a breakdown of the “point system” for the
    Konami Penthouse Space?

  • r yall still working on the trophy room from yrs back or no and why when i put on ps share for netflix streaming on ps home it isnt been posted and its been over a week

  • Are we ever going to get the Burn Zombie Burn hat that Plus members are suppose to have? Europe has the hat, why don’t we?

  • Is there any chance of ever being able to put more than 50 things in our personl places?

  • Curious, is this free to play like Sodium? Or is it actually free to play?

    • It is free to play. You will have the option to augment your experience with premium, for-sale items, but the core of the game will remain free to all.

  • This is the coolest thing to come to Home since Salt Shooter.
    Now all I need is for Sony to come up with programing that will use the Playstation Camera to help model my avater to look like me.

  • Is the SCEA HOME getting the “PlayStation Plus Private Members Club”? The new space from SCEE?

    -FNation

  • It’s free to play however you can purchase upgrades.

  • I very much like the idea of a multiplayer space combat game but I’m hoping that it will be free of lag and fun to play. Please don’t disappoint me.

  • $_$

  • Awesome! I know what I’ll be doing this weekend.

  • Any chance it is coming just as a stand along game? Home just isn’t my thing but I love space shooters.

    • This game is exclusive to Home. And if you love space shooters, maybe Home is your thing ;) When is the last time you logged in?

  • Those really look like Daft Punk helmets in Novus Prime….

  • You guys just keep getting better & better! I love the idea of home at war and us having to go into space battles! THIS IS SWEET. You guys really did a great job this week!!!!!!

  • Do we get any free cloths when we join the fight?

  • Thanks, Sony! Nothing compares to Playstation Home. :)

  • It’s updates like these that keep me coming back to home. Those, and the little gems and games inside. Keep up the fantastic work on Home!

  • Netflix enabled party TV, please. If all present friends have Netflix, I don’t see any conflict. Tried Blogshare, but didn’t even get posted.

  • Very cool. Thanks for keeping Home up!

  • Hmm, salt shooter seems better still. Shame we can’t get something big like that again, or bigger.

  • is out yet or what?

  • So no Christmas related content in the Central Plaza or mall for this update? I hope this year is alot better than last year as in like can we get a whole bunch of snow instead of the blotches we got last year?

  • Home has been out for how long now, 2 years, and people still don`t know it updates every Thursday? Wow…

    I`m only interested in animal costumes, like a cool wolf and dragon costume. Came so close last week, when Lockwood had shirts with a wolf and cheetah print on.

  • cool multi player game

  • Will we finally get the “Talk Show” set for the LOOT Modular Stage house?

  • Very nice game! Novus Prime!!! this will be replacing Saucer Pop, right? Good to see a new amazingly fun game!

  • @37 – HerbertFortoon

    That would be a really cool feature.

  • Hello Locust and creative team, im sorry to say this but to me all these “new” content is just more of the same,i feel like you guys have run out of ideas and just decided to throw a shooting game at us, mainly to the guys, and some fish tank helmet, i mean, we are trying to be more social and more interactive, that needs to be work on,have our avatars do more gestures and be more animated, maybe hold hands, at least.I understand PS3 is Kid friendly but KIDS are not buying your products and are not investing money on your tech, we adults are. Something else that bothers me is the T shirt reward at the theater,i cant stand getting a T shirt with the face of someone,i dont know, can you make it to be a pair of gloves or something other than a T-shirt.

  • I have been saying this for months, get rid of places people dont go to and make CENTRAL PLAZA bigger, we need a city like plaza,there are more people joining PS HOME, specially at the end of the year and we need something BIGGER, more city like and not like playground (please), that place is too small, after 4 times i went there, my friends and i were like ahhh, its boring here, its too smal, the chat log needs to get back to what it was before, with people`s own colors and not all gray?white, its too confusing,and i hope we North America HOME get snow and all the nice stuff UK HOME gets for CHRISTMAS,we seem to get leftovers or recycled stuff of great events happening elsewhere.

  • omg… this looks AMAZING! first the hudson space and now this?! great!!! :))
