Sony has announced (via the PlayStation Blog, naturally) that they’re bringing 26 PS4 games to this year’s PAX East convention.
By giving attendees more than two dozen demo options, Sony will be able to showcase a wide variety of titles at their booth including AAA blockbusters (Gran Turismo Sport and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy), highly-anticipated indie offerings (Cosmic Star Heroine, Tooth & Tail, and What Remains of Edith Finch), and a few PlayStation VR curiosities (Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin and Farpoint).
Here’s a full look at the 26 PS4 games Sony will bring to PAX East 2017 (though a few of them are also in development for the Vita):
The 2017 PAX East convention will open its doors this Friday, March 10, at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
Thunder Lotus Games has announced that Sundered, their upcoming MetroidVania-style side-scroller, will be released for the PC and PS4 in July 2017. The developer also confirmed plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign on Monday, January 16, to help with development costs and to gather feedback from their fans.
Sundered will include a procedurally-generated world map and random monster placement to encourage replayability. And like Thunder Lotus’s last game, Jotun, it’ll feature hand-drawn art for both the characters and the environments.
In case you missed it, you can get a sneak peek at Sundered’s visuals by viewing its Announcement Trailer, which was first revealed by Thunder Lotus last September.
Thunder Lotus Games recently launched Jotun for the PC, PS4, Wii U, and Xbox One. The overhead action RPG features hand-drawn graphics and a storyline inspired by the Norse mythology. Yesterday, they announced their newest retro-inspired project, Sundered.
Infused with Lovecraftian themes, Sundered is a side-scrolling exploration shooter (or “MetroidVania,” if you prefer) where players will be asked to explore “ever-changing caverns teeming with eldritch horrors” and “harness the power of corrupted relics to defeat gigantic bosses.” Within its series of procedurally-generated levels, players will help Eshe navigate a ruined world as he fights for survival… and his sanity.
Sundered’s debut trailer has been embedded above, and it’ll be released for the PC and PS4 sometime in 2017. But in the more immediate future, attendees of this weekend’s TwitchCon will be able to try out a playable version of the game at Thunder Lotus’s booth.
