All Articles: Splice: Tree of Life

Saints Row IV, Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, Resident Evil HD, more added to PS Store


A mix of re-releases, remakes, and reversions to a simpler time make up this week’s PlayStation Store update.

Capcom has released Resident Evil on nearly every platform imaginable over the years and the game’s eighth re-release gives the 2002 “REmake” a high definition upgrade and a new widescreen presentation. You can now relive all the thrills and chills of one of the first great survival horror titles on the PS3 or the PS4.

Also available this week is Saints Row IV: Re-Elected, a PS4 update to Saints Row IV. The Re-Elected package includes all of the previously released downloadable content and a graphical upgrade. Its joined by Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell (PS3, PS4), a standalone expansion that asks players to “Shoot The Devil in the Face” to save the President of the United States from Satan.

Speaking of Presidents, Atlus’ Citizens of Earth (PS4, Vita) stars the Vice President of the World as he attempts to stop an alien invasion in a colorful RPG that is clearly inspired by the Super NES classic Earthbound. Finally, DNA-based puzzler Splice is now available on the PS3 and PS4 as a Cross-Buy title.

More information on all of these titles (and a few others) can be found after the break. And, as always, the PlayStation Blog is home to a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts. (more…)
