Mass Effect: Andromeda, Zero Escape: The Nonary Games, Freedom Planet, more added to PlayStation Store

After Mass Effect 3‘s ending divided fans, BioWare wiped the slate clean for the fourth entry in the franchise, Mass Effect: Andromeda. Now available to download for the PS4 through the PlayStation Store, players will explore the uncharted Andromeda galaxy in a search for humanity’s new home.

Also available to download this week is Zero Escape: The Nonary Games, a two-game collection featuring Nine Hours Nine Persons Nine Doors and Virtue’s Last Reward. Launching on the PS4 and Vita for the first time, The Nonary Games follows two groups forced to compete for their lives in a deadly game. One group is trapped on a sinking boat, and the other is locked in a facility, but can they all escape?

Another well-liked game making its PS4 debut today is Freedom Planet, a retro-themed side-scroller that was inspired by Sonic the Hedgehog’s heyday on the Genesis.

And finally this week, Sony is kicking off their “Play Collective” promotion with the release of Everything, a PS4 game that the developers are pitching as “an interactive experience where everything you see is a thing you can be.”

You can learn more about all of these games (and nearly a dozen other new releases) after the break.

It’s 8:08 AM on August 8, 1988, and the evil Dr. H8 has brought the world to the brink of total annihilation! His demands are simple: pay $88 octillion within 88 minutes, or Dr. H8’s 88 thermo-nuclear warheads will wipe out the Earth! But who will save us in our time of need? The bravest? The boldest? No… the 88 Heroes! (Available March 24)

Everything
Everything is an interactive experience where everything you see is a thing you can be, from animals to planets to galaxies and beyond.
