PlayStation owners can look forward to a fantastic week of new digital releases, as the PlayStation Blog has rounded up what games are coming out on the PlayStation Network. Big names such as Assassin’s Creed are on the list, but the definite highlight is Fullbright’s Gone Home: Console Edition.
The critically acclaimed first-person adventure game, which was originally released on PC in 2013, is finally making its console debut. Releasing on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Gone Home looks to wow a brand new audience with its storytelling, and atmosphere. It’s been a long road for the standout indie game to get to consoles, as an original effort by Midnight City to bring the game to Wii U was canceled after the publisher closed down in 2015. Like a phoenix, the project came back from the dead and is finally seeing release.
Another highly acclaimed PC game making its way to consoles is The Banner Saga. Stoic Studios’ role-playing game is based off Viking legends, and originally released in January of 2014.
Other games coming out this week include the second installment in Climax Studios’ Assassin’s Creed Chronicles series. This time around the setting is changed to India, and players will get to control assassin Arbaaz Mir. The 2.5D action features all of the stealth and platforming that made the series Ubisoft’s cash cow.
Bit.Trip developer Choice Provisions is switching genres and releasing the space strategy game Tharsis. Players must try to keep a spaceship from crashing while it’s headed to Mars. Whether players win or lose is ultimately down to dice rolls which leads to excitement and heartbreak.
Finally, Spanish studio Animatoon is bringing their mobile game Dogchild to consoles. PS2 classics are also seeing some love, as Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits will see release on PlayStation 4. The Cattle Call developed game is the first PlayStation 2 installment of the long running RPG series that debuted in 1995.
