Three very different action games lead the way as part of this week’s PlayStation Store update.
Like its predecessor, Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs 2 is an urban adventure for the PS4 where “hacktivists” attempt to disrupt the corrupt ctOS system while also fighting against a larger conspiracy. This time, the action shifts to San Francisco, and players follow “brilliant young hacker” Marcus Holloway in his quest to stop the unnecessary surveillance.
Ubisoft will also launch another set of open world games for the PS4 this week, but their setting is worlds away from San Francisco’s technological utopia. In Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection, players will get the chance to explore Renaissance-era Italy as they replay Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations . Available for first time on the PS4, the trilogy features enhanced graphics and redone textures to create a more realistic open world.
Finally this week, Tripwire Interactive will unleash Killing Floor 2, their zombie-blasting first person shooter, on the PS4 on Friday. Picking up right where the first game left off, the sequel descends into continental Europe as players attempt to clear “zed-laden hot zones.”
A full rundown of this week’s additions to the PlayStation Store can be found after the break. And you can find information about all of this week’s new add-ons and discounts at the PlayStation Blog.
