A pleasingly eclectic lineup of new PlayStation 4 releases includes Raji: An Ancient Epic, Torchlight III, and The JackBox Party Pack 7.

Our pick of the week is Raji: An Ancient Epic from Nodding Heads Games. The game was a Nintendo Switch console exclusive for a short time and is released for PS4 and Xbox One on Thursday. It’s a pleasure to play, and if you appreciate games with intricate environments and accessible combat – think Ico, Bastion, Tomb Raider, and Prince of Persia: Sands of Time – you’ll find lots to enjoy. The game’s story, which is hewn from Hindu and Balinese culture, is also a refreshing change from the norm.

We’re also excited to play The JackBox Party Pack 7. The latest edition of the hit party game includes five titles: Quiplash 3, The Devils and the Details, Champ’d Up, Talking Points, and Blather Round. As always, players can use smart phones as controllers, making it the perfect pastime for friends and families. You can find out more about the JackBox series – and how lockdown boosted its sales – in our report from GDC Summer.


Other new releases include Space Crew (the highly-anticipated follow up to Bomber Crew), NHL 21, and Cloudpunk. Acclaimed action RPG Torchlight III also makes the transfer to console following its PC release earlier this year.

Here’s the full lineup of PS4 titles confirmed so far. Check back throughout the week for updates on any late additions.
