This week’s lineup of new PlayStation releases includes Euyuden Chronicle, Evil Dead, and the peerless puzzler, Unpacking.
Top of the tree on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 this week is Unpacking, one of the best video games of 2021. It’s an unassuming indie puzzle game, but don’t let that fool you – this is a delightfully zen slice of tidying up brilliance (who doesn’t love when everything is in its place?) with a beautiful story running throughout.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is the sort-of prequel to Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, and with Hundred Heroes delayed, Rising gives players an introduction to the new IP. It’s no Suikoden, as fans hoped, but it’s still an RPG from Yoshitaka Murayama. We’re counting that as a win.
Evil Dead: The Game looks to capitalise on the success of streamer-friendly horrors like Dead by Daylight, with added Bruce Campbell. Hopefully, it’s better than other Hollywood horror tie-ins like Friday the 13th The Game and Predator: Hunting Grounds.
Salt & Sacrifice is also much-anticipated among Souls fans, which probably tells you all you need to know about that one. Aery – A New Frontier promises to be a much more relaxing option.
We’ll update this list through the week if anything changes.
