While PS4 gamers have already been treated to a wealth of great exclusive titles, Sony’s console is set to up the ante in the coming months with some massive games hitting the platform. Here’s five we can’t wait to play:
Ratchet & Clank
Release Date: 2016
Hilariously described as “the game based on the movie based on the game”, the upcoming Ratchet & Clank game is not a remake, but rather a re-imagining of the original game’s story, which will also be showcased in the upcoming animated feature film of the same name.
Developer Insomniac is behind the scenes once again, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. The iconic furry lombax and his robot pal’s intergalactic adventure will see a massive graphical overhaul, new locations, new story twists and, of course, some insane new weapons.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
Release Date: March 2016
The Uncharted series needs little to no introduction at this point. After three best-selling games and numerous Game of the Year awards, the franchise is set to get its fourth long-awaited instalment. There’s not too many details at this point, but our favourite treasure hunter looks to be embarking on his most ambitious and dangerous adventure yet, full of steep cliffs to climb, epic shootouts to partake in and a lot of massive explosions to survive. The gameplay demos have already given us a glimpse of the incredible level of detail and action we’ve come to expect from the series.
Release Date: 26 August 2015
If you like horror movies, then you’ll definitely want to check out Until Dawn, a game that puts you in the shoes of eight potential murder victims. Like many scary flicks, the game follows a group of teenagers who decide to spend the night in a cabin in the woods, a locale that just happens to be in the path of a serial killer.
You get to play as each of the could-be victims, making decisions about where they hide and how they react when the killer comes looking for blood. Your choices determine who lives and who dies, so if you’re always rolling your eyes at the silly choices characters make during slasher flicks, give Until Dawn a try to put yourself in the firing-line for once.
No Man’s Sky
Release Date: 2015
What we haven’t had in a while is an intriguing-looking space exploration title. In No Man’s Sky, you can explore near-infinite worlds on your journey to the center of the universe, mapping out planets as you go. The game is massively multiplayer in a sense, and any world you discover will proudly display your tag. No Man’s Sky is making us curious, as there’s still a lot to be discovered.
Release Date: 2015
Tearaway was a critical hit when it came out in 2013, but because it was released on the underselling PS Vita handheld, not many people got to play it and appreciate its brilliance. But there is console version version coming which will give the series a second-chance at reaching a mainstream audience. Tearaway Unfolded takes the 3D platforming premise of the original, where the whole world is made entirely of paper, and nestles on the PS4. The game allows you to fold or interact with the paper objects and levels in various ways to get where you need to go. It’s a cute and clever game that should feel right at home on the PS4.
