Sony kicked off their PSN Play promotion for 2015 this week with the release of Journey on the PS4. The lyrical adventure from thatgamecompany has enchanted gamers all over the world with its wordless story and its even downloadable for free if you already own the PS3 edition.
Also available this week is a whole slew of wacky and weird games that are sure to find their niche:
- Tembo the Badass Elephant is a colorful side-scroller for the PS4 from Game Freak (the creators of Pokemon) and Sega. If that’s not enough for you, need I remind you that this is a BADASS elephant?
- F1 2015 is the latest Formula One simulation from Codemasters and the first for the PS4.
- Game of Thrones: A Nest of Vipers, available for the PS3 and PS4, is the fifth episode in Telltale’s episodic adaptation of the wildly popular HBO series.
- Hatoful Boyfriend is a “pigeon dating simulator” that’s available as a Cross-Buy title for the PS4 and Vita.
- Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is the latest game in the “bikini girls versus zombies” franchise and the first to be released in the US in more than five years.
More information on all of these new releases (and a few others) can be found after the break. And don’t forget, a complete rundown of this week’s discounts and new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
Two, count ’em, two games about fighting the undead in the waning days of World War II will be available on stores this week. And, interestingly enough, both are currently available to download through digital storefronts. The public has spoken, and they want discs!
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood brings B.J. Blazkowicz back to the frontlines on the PS4 and Xbox One. As a prequel to last year’s Wolfenstein: The New Order, Blazkowicz will get to do some 1940s-style Nazi hunting, but he’ll also tangle with an entire village of zombies. Ach du lieber!
But Blazkowicz won’t be fighting alone as Zombie Hitler himself is behind the undead shenanigans in Zombie Army Trilogy for the PS4 and Xbox One. A standalone spinoff of Sniper Elite III, Zombie Army Trilogy is a team-based game where the Allies have to stop this final solution for Nazi world domination. Ach du lieber, wieder!
A third round of zombie hunting is available to shoppers this week in Onechanbara Z2: Chaos for the PS4. Published by XSEED, Onechanbara Z2 features the further adventures of the “bikini zombie squad,” a group of Japanese sisters who kill zombies with swords while wearing bikinis… obviously.
Finally this week, Codemasters will release F1 2015, the latest Formula 1 racing sim, and first to be released for the PS4 and Xbox One. If you love open wheel racing, this is the game for you. But sorry, no zombies.
Codemasters has announced they’ve had to push back the release of F1 2015, which was originally scheduled to launch next month. The open-wheel racing sim will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on July 21. Codemasters didn’t elaborate on the cause of the delay, but perhaps the jump to PS4/Xbox One development has something to do with it. However, F1 2015 fans won’t walk away from this news empty-handed as Codemasters also released the first teaser trailer for the game. It’s been embedded above.
Finally, Codemasters announced that fans who pre-order F1 2015 from GameStop will receive a collectable metal case.
F1 2015 will be released for PC, PS4, Xbox One in June
Codemasters announced today they’re bringing their Formula One racing series to the PC, PS4, and Xbox One this June with the release of F1 2015. Distributed by Bandai Namco, the game will set a new bar for realism in Formula One games.
F1 2015 will include “a significant step forward” in the physics-based handling model, which has been designed with new players and veterans in mind. This new model will offer improvements to all parts of the car including “engine and transmission, aerodynamics, fuel tank, force feedback, suspension, and a brand new tire physics model.” A new “broadcast presentation” graphical style will also aid in the game’s attempt at realism and a voice recognition option on both the PS4 and Xbox One will get you talking to your race engineers. Finally, the game will make all of these features come to life through the use of a brand new version of Codemasters’ popular EGO game engine.
Players will get the chance to compete in two FIA Formula One World Championship seasons in F1 2015 including the current 2015 season and the 2014 season (which is being called “bonus game content” right now, so it may be available as DLC).
Codemasters has announced that F1 2014 will take the checkered flag on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on October 21. F1 2014 will be the final Formula 1 sim for the PS3 and Xbox 360 and Codemasters wants to ensure its their best version yet:
F1 2014 will incorporate this season’s seismic rule changes – the most significant in the sport’s 60 year history – including new aerodynamic regulations and turbocharged power units. All but two teams have changed their driver line-ups and new circuits have been added to the roster. Players will experience how 2014’s radically different new cars feel to drive as the season’s cars, circuits and teams are authentically represented.
Codemasters will also add a new difficulty-scaling system to F1 2014 to make it more accessible for new players and more difficult for experts:
A new driver evaluation system quickly identifies player ability and tunes game settings to an appropriate level, whilst re-graded difficulty settings enable players to compete at incrementally higher levels as they become more experienced. Experienced gamers, who enjoy a more serious simulation of the demands placed upon Formula One drivers, can customise their settings to provide a true challenge.
The developer also revealed that they’ll make the next-generation leap beginning next year with the currently untitled F1 2015, which will be available sometime next Spring for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Codemasters plans to release regular digital updates as the season progresses to keep the game updated, “enabling players to compete against the drivers and teams they watch week in and week out.”
