Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has announced that the revamped version of PlayStation Home is now live for PAL region PlayStation 3 owners. The redesign of the avatar-based social networking hub features all-new gaming districts, and promises easier access to online content.
The four new districts include:
Action: With a gritty, urban aesthetic, the Action district is the perfect destination for players looking for action, shooter and horror games. Check out free-to-play game Bootlegger 29 that brings real time first person shooter gameplay to an authentic Prohibition-era environment. Team up with other users to have your own adventures for free!
Sportswalk: Experience the collective atmosphere and feel of a major sporting event with sports-themed games, special features, sports quizzes and trivia. Share your latest sporting achievements with friends over a game of pool, darts, or even drop into the poker lounge and see if you've got the nerve to beat your opponents and leave with your chips stacked high.
Adventure: Immerse yourself in a beachfront jungle full of sights to see and adventure-themed games to discover throughout Adventure district. Themed around blockbuster title Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception, users can experience a Nathan Drake-style adventure, with their very own avatar.
Indie Park: The place to go to check out a huge range of bite-size games showcased by a variety of different indie developers. This zone offers a unique opportunity for up and coming developers to show off their talent and for users to experience their innovation first hand.
However, veteran Home users will still have access to the old content, so features such as bowling and chess have been preserved.
Sony has also released a new walkthrough of the revamped PlayStation Home. Check it out in the video below.
