All Articles: Renegade Ops
Prepare yourself PS3 owners, Sony has graced the PlayStation Store with another massive update that is sure to include something for everyone.
Leading the way this week is a downloadable version of God of War: Origins Collection. The HD remake of Kratos’s PSP adventures is also available in retail stores today.
Today’s PSN Play entry is Renegade Ops, a vehicular combat game from Sega where the vehicle combat doesn’t involve a tournament for psychopaths. I know, right? Instead, players get behind the wheel of “an elite mobile commando unit sent behind enemy lines to defeat Inferno, a madman intent on global domination!”
Also available this week is Eric Chahi’s god game, From Dust; budget racer Ferrari: The Race Experience; a downloadable version of Epic’s Bulletstorm; Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness, a Capcom fighter that never before made it to America; and PSone Classic Pong: The Next Level.
More information on all of this week’s new releases and game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation.Blog.
Although BloodRayne: Betrayal was supposed to come out in August simultaneously on the PSN and XBLA, it looks like PSN Play has thrown a wrench in the plans. Instead of coming out at the same time, it will be released on September 6 on the PSN, and not until October 5 on XBLA. Seeing as Microsoft has long had timed exclusivities in all manner of digital releases, it’s no surprise that Sony is starting to do the same.
Two other releases in the PSN Play, Street Fighter III Third Strike Online Edition and Renegade Ops, will still be released at the same time on both download services.
The Summer of Arcade has been a great way for Microsoft to launch new games on the Xbox Live Arcade over the last three years. So Sony has decided to hold a Summer promotion of their with the similarly themed PlayStation Network Play.
The promotion will begin on August 23 with the release of Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition. But PS3 owners will actually be able to “pre-order” any PSN Play pick five days before each game is released (and they’ll receive a free theme as a bonus). Hothead’s DeathSpank sequel The Baconing; Majesco’s BloodRayne: Betrayal sidescroller; and Sega’s top-down vehicle combat game Renegade Ops round out the PSN Play lineup.
Like the Summer of Arcade, gamers who purchase every PSN Play offering will receive a free game. In this case, it’s Sony’s Payday: The Heist (which is scheduled for a Fall release). And that’s not all! Each game will also include exclusive DLC and PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive 20% off any of their Play purchases.
Sony has promised that the PSN Play promotion will be a yearly event, so start counting down to PSN Play 2012 now! Or get your fill of information for the 2011 lineup after the break. (more…)
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. It’s a popular phrase that goes back almost 200 years and Sega has certainly adopted it in their crusade to create another great Sonic the Hedgehog game on a console. The publisher will try again this year as Sonic Generations (3DS, PS3, Xbox 360) leads their E3 lineup. Sega is so sure they’ve got it right this time that they’re even giving the public a sneak peek at the game at the Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 8 at 6 PM (Pacific Time).
The remainder of Sega’s lineup is pretty diverse and seems to have a little bit of something for everyone:
- The long-gestating squad-based shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines
- Platinum Games’ latest brawler, Anarchy Reigns
- The Terminator-esque Binary Domain
- Movie-to-game adaptation Captain America: Super Soldier
- The reborn puzzler Crush 3D
- The XBLA debut of Treasure’s Guardian Heroes
- The brilliant light gun shooter House of the Dead: Overkill, on the PS3 for the first time.
- Downloadable action title Renegade Ops
- The first M-rated Kinect game, Rise of Nightmares
- The rally racer Sega Rally Online Arcade, which is available now
- And Shinobi emerging from the shadows on the 3DS
Sega also has a few surprises in store for the E3 Expo as they’ve promised “more than 13 new games across all major platforms,” but they only listed 12 games. Considering the company’s close relationship with Nintendo, I’d bet good money that we’ll get a Wii 2 announcement or two.
