Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 1, Abzu, Ape Escape 2, more added to PS Store

Sony’s “PlayStation Store Play” promotion continues this week with the release of Abzu, a game from Journey Art Director Matt Nava that encourages players to explore “a vibrant hidden world bursting with color and life” as they dive deeper into the ocean.

Elsewhere on the PlayStation Store, Telltale will launch the first episode of Batman: The Telltale Series this week for the PS4. The opening chapter of this Gotham City story is titled “Realm of Shadows,” and it’ll examine the lives of both Batman and Bruce Wayne in his quest to protect the innocent and punish the guilty.

Finally this week, Sony will expand their line of PS2-On-PS4 offerings with Ape Escape 2, a forgotten classic from the PS2’s early days.

More information on all of these games (and a few more new releases) can be found after the break. And a complete list of this week’s new add-ons and discounts is available at the PlayStation Blog.
