PS4 - 4ThePlayers / Viking Attack - (2014) :45 (The Netherlands)

"Welcome To The Future Of Play" is an integrated campaign introducing the next generation PlayStation 4 launching this week, hoping to entice the christmas market to buy it and unite the biggest community of players around the world. Basically it's a product demo that takes place within a Viking raid of a village, two players who never seem to survive the attack use the Playstation app to check youtube, ask for cheats and eventually simply invite their mate Nick to help them. "But Nick doesn't have the game?" "It's OK, Nick doesn't need the game!" he shouts before rushing to attack Leeroy Jenkins-style.

Usama Al-Qassab – Vice President Marketing at PlayStation, SCEE, commented:
“With the 'For the Players' campaign we challenged 180 Amsterdam to create an electrifying campaign which would empower, unite and galvanize Players all over the world. Our aim is to build on the 'For the Players' promise, consolidating PlayStation 4's position as undisputed leaders in the next generation console market, as well as proving that PlayStation truly is the best place to play."

Shot in Lithuania, director Ruben Fleischer did his Hollywood best, using a cast of 200 extras, stunt men, choreographers, war re-enactors and drone cameras. Creative was from 180 Amsterdam , and production was Caviar.
