There’s something for everyone in this week’s PlayStation Store update.

The biggest new release is definitely Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate for the PS4. Ubisoft’s historial hack and slash series moves to Victorian London in the latest installment and brings with it all the hooliganism you’d expect from such a setting. I wonder if you can make your Assassin shout “Pip Pip!” as they marauder their way through a gang of Templars.

Ubisoft is a busy bee this week, as the publisher will also release Just Dance 2016 for the PS4 and PS3. The latest addition to the publisher’s dance machine includes 42 songs from Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, and many others.

On the complete opposite spectrum from teen pop hits is Bandai Namco’s Tales of Zestiria, the latest game in the popular Tales series of action RPGs. Zestiria is the first game in the series to be released for the PS4, but it’ll also be available for the PS3.

Elsewhere, a pair of licensed games were added to the PlayStation Store this week, both of which revolve around puzzles. Marvel Puzzle Quest is a match-3 puzzler for the PS4 and PS3, while Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations is an adventure game with a lot of puzzle-solving elements.

Finally this week, two episodic adventures will come to an as Dontnod’s Life Is Strange: Polarized and Telltale’s Tales From the Borderlands: The Vault of the Traveler have both been released for the PS4 and PS3.

More information on all of these games are available after the break. And a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts can be found at the PlayStation Blog.
