PS Store This Week: Uncharted Lost Legacy, Madden NFL 18, Thimbleweed Park, more

It’s yet another big week for the PlayStation Store, and Naughty Dog is leading the way with a new Uncharted adventure and the return of Jak & Daxter.

Nathan Drake is taking a well-earned (and possibly permanent) vacation, but Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross will help PS4 fans get used to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Players will venture out in search of the Golden Tusk of Ganesh, but they’ll have to contend with a “ruthless warmonger” who also wants the prized artifact. The developer will also add Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy to the PlayStation Store this week as a PS2-On-PS4 re-release.

To football fans, a Super Bowl Ring might be the ultimate treasure, and PS4 owners will get the chance to reach the big game this week in Madden NFL 18. New features this year include a revamped visual presentation and the “Longshot” Story Mode (starring Oscar winner Mahershala Ali).

Elsewhere on the PlayStation Store, a trio of indie developers have added new titles to the digital storefront. PS4 owners will be able to investigate a murder in Ron Gilbert’s Thimbleweed Park, cast spells in Borealys Games’s Mages of Mystralia, and escape from a new set of prisons in Team17’s The Escapists 2.

Finally this week, Codemasters is back with another racing simulation, F1 2017, and Bandai Namco has remastered the entire Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm trilogy for the PS4. Also, Telltale is teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy once again in Episode 3: More Than A Feeling.

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