Are you ready to play cops and robbers? I hope so, because EA’s Battlefield Hardline is now available to download through the PlayStation Store for the PS4 and PS3. Developed by Visceral Games, Hardline moves away from international conflicts and instead depicts the ongoing war between criminals and cops.
Also available this week is Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, an action RPG from Square Enix that is making its PS4 debut more than three years after it first appeared on the PSP. But in all that time it never made its way across the Pacific, so Final Fantasy fans definitely have something to celebrate. But those fans also have another reason to be happy about Type-0… it comes packaged with a playable demo of Final Fantasy XV.
Jamestown+, a PS4 shooter that takes place on a “17th-century steampunk Mars,” is this week’s Spring Fever selection. And over on the PS3, NIS America has added the roguelike RPG The Awakened Fate Ultimatum to the PS3 side of the PlayStation Store.
Finally, we have to talk about new entries from two episodic games. This week marks the end of Resident Evil Revelations 2‘s episodic release. Episode 4, Metamorphosis, is now available on the PS4 and PS3. But Telltale’s Tales From the Borderlands is still ramping up as Episode 2, Atlas Mugged, was also released for the PS4 and PS3.
More information about all of these games (as well as a few others) can be found after the break. And a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
This Winter has been absolutely brutal for people all across the United States, but Sony wants to remind us that Spring is almost here with their announcement of a double-size Spring Fever promotion. Beginning March 3 (take that, Punxsutawney Phil!), the promotion will run for eight weeks and include some of the most anticipated PlayStation Store releases across the PS3, PS4, and Vita.
Helldivers, a top-down shooter for the PS3, PS4, and Vita, will kick things off on Tuesday and the whole thing will wrap up on April 21 with Shovel Knight‘s PS3/PS4/Vita debut. In between, gamers will get a chance to test out six more great titles (and PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive a 10% discount on each game during its launch week):
- 3/3 – Helldivers (PS4/PS3/PS Vita Cross-Buy)
- 3/10 – Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number (PS4/PS3/PS Vita Cross-Buy)
- 3/17 – Jamestown Plus (PS4)
- 3/24 – Metal Slug 3 (PS4/PS3/PS Vita Cross-Buy)
- 3/31 – Axiom Verge (PS4)
- 4/7 – Bastion (PS4)
- 4/14 – Titan Souls (PS4/PS Vita Cross-Buy)
- 4/21 – Shovel Knight (PS4/PS3/PS Vita Cross-Buy)
Bastion and Axiom Verge will also launch for the PS Vita at some future date. As with the other Spring Fever releases, both will be Cross-Buy compatible.
