Control, Man Of Medan, and Knights and Bikes are among next week’s lineup of new PlayStation Store releases for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.
It’s official, the summer slump is over. More than 20 games are coming to PlayStation 4 in the next week, including Remedy Entertainment’s Control. The studio’s latest action-adventure game follows the story of Jesse Faden as she investigates the mysterious Federal Bureau of Control, and faces a hostile force known as The Hiss. Supernatural and super-powered high-jinks ensue.
Control has its spooky moments, but spookier still is Man of Medan. The first release in Supermassive’s Dark Pictures anthology of horror games features a group of handsome young tourists trapped within a ghost ship on the South Pacific Ocean. Pip Torrens, Shawn Ashmore, and Ayisha Issa are among the cast.
We’re also excited to play Foam Sword’s tale of childhood adventure, Knights and Bikes. This beautiful, hand-painted game takes inspiration from The Goonies, but looks back at the 1980s through a distinctly British lens.
Other new PlayStation 4 releases include the director’s cut of The Bard’s Tale IV, The Lord Of The Rings: Adventure Card Game, and robot party game, Hookbots. Here’s the full lineup of upcoming releases.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
