FIFA 17, XCOM 2, Contra, more added to PS Store

Soccer stars and a double dose of aliens lead the way for this week’s PlayStation Store update…

We start things off with FIFA 17 for the PS4 and PS3, the latest soccer simulation from EA Sports. This time around, the publisher has added a new story-focused career mode known as “The Journey,” where players take control a teenager trying to make it in the Premier League.

But if you’d prefer to battle an alien invasion, you’ve got two choices on the PlayStation Store this week. Firaxis and 2K will bring the tactical fighting of XCOM 2 to the PS4, while Konami will launch the original arcade version of Contra on Sony’s console.

Finally, players who’ve been following the King’s Quest saga will be able to check out Chapter 4: Snow Place Like Home on the PS4 and PS3 this week. In this episode, King Graham recounts the time he had to rescue Prince Alexander from Queen Icebella’s Frozen Castle.

More information about all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And, as always, a complete rundown of this week’s new add-ons and discounts is available at the PlayStation Blog.
