Gearbox Software wants to take players on a trip to a galaxy far, far away this week… but it’s not the one you’re thinking of. Their “Hero Shooter,” Battleborn, is now available to download for the PS4 through the PlayStation Store. Players will be able to choose from more than 25 unique “Badasses” as they battle a madman for control of the last star in both single-player and cooperative multiplayer modes.
Also new to the PlayStation Store this week is Neverending Nightmares, a psychological horror game, with an Edward Gorey-inspired art style, that’s available as a Cross-Buy purchase on both the PS4 and PS Vita.
Finally this week, PS4 players will get the chance to reach back into the past to play some of the greatest games of yesteryear on their new-generation console. These classics include Shadow Complex Remastered, a modern-day “MetroidVania” from Chair Entertainment; and The King of Fighters 2000, the latest PS2-On-PS4 re-release.
More information on all of these games can be found after the break. And, as always, a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts (including a big “Star Wars Day/May the 4th Be With You” sale) is available at the PlayStation Blog.
