Take a look at this week’s lineup of new PS Store releases for the PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PS VR.

This week’s PlayStation 4 highlight is Void Bastards from Blue Manchu. It’s a sci-fi roguelike FPS that takes combat cues from Bioshock, looks like a comic book, and is loaded with dark humour. The game has some rough edges, but it reliably delivers thrilling, seat-of-your-pants escapades.

Another new release that attempts to do the same is John Wick Hex. This timeline strategy game serves as a prequel to the movies and is intricate, stylish, and often very clever. However, it’s sometimes a little too fussy, and the results of your actions are never quite as impressive as you’d like.


Other new releases include the accurately-titled genre mash-up game, Supermash, 2D puzzle platformer Emma: Lost in Memories, and sci-fi shoot ‘em up, Task Force Kampas.

Here’s the full list of new PlayStation Store games for the PS4, PS VR, and PS Vita. We’ll add any last-minute additions to the list throughout the week.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
