Prepare to terrify yourself with today’s Xbox Games Store update, as Red Barrels has released Outlast II for the Xbox One. The sequel to the first-person horror adventure introduces a new set of characters for players to meet and a weird cult for them to explore. Will Blake Langermann and his wife, Lynn, make it out alive? Or will the disappearance of these investigative journalists become the story?

A nice variety of sequels are also be available to download today for the Xbox One including Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII, and Syberia 3.

If none of those games interest you, you might be interested to learn that Telltale Games will continue The Walking Dead: A New Frontier on the Xbox One today with Episode 4: Thicker Than Water.

What Remains of Edith Finch, Dragon Quest Heroes II, Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment, more added to PS Store

The PlayStation Store is bursting with new releases this week, so let’s not waste any time…

We start things off with What Remains of Edith Finch, a first-person narrative adventure for the PS4 from Giant Sparrow, the development team behind The Unfinished Swan. Giant Sparrow thinks of the game as a “collection of strange tales,” and players will need to explore a colossal mansion to learn the secrets of the Finch family.

If you’d rather whack things with a giant sword, PS4 owners will also get the chance to go medieval this week with the release of Square Enix/Koei Tecmo’s Dragon Quest Heroes II and Yacht Club’s Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment. More modern weaponry is available in Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, a new combat simulation for the PS4 that offers an open world and gives players the ability to tackle missions in any way they choose.

A terrifying trio of new games will also be available to download for the PS4 this week. Deathstate is a “single-stick shooter” with retro-styled Lovecraftian monsters; Little Nightmares is a moody side-scroller from Bandai Namco; and Outlast II is a followup to Red Barrels’s first-person frightener. And speaking of horrors, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Episode 4: Thicker Than Water is also available to download for the PS4.

Finally this week, the Syberia series returns for the first time in more than a decade with a PS4 release for Syberia 3.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 will be released in first half of 2016

sniperghostwarrior3-1CI Games announced today they’re bringing their popular Sniper: Ghost Warrior series to new-generation consoles in the first half of 2016. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3‘s development team will include Steve Hart (who previously worked on Sniper Elite V2 at Rebellion), as well as former Marine Paul B. Robinson, who has worked as a consultant on game development projects for more than 20 years, according to CI Games.

While it’s still early in the development cycle, here’s what prospective players can expect from Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3:

Set in a modern day conflict based in Eastern Europe, players will be thrust into the role of a sniper caught between three warring factions, played out in a realistic and immersive environment. Dig deep into the Ghost Warrior DNA as you choose between taking out your targets up close or from a distance, while at the same time focusing on your survival through evasion and stealth. Non-linear, sandbox-style gameplay on large open-ended maps give players the flexibility to play and replay the missions in a number of different ways. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 will offer intriguing challenges for tactically-minded gamers, while still remaining accessible to first-person shooter fans.

The first piece of concept art from the game has also been posted for your perusal.
