The Banner Saga 2 and Furi lead this week’s PlayStation Store releases.
Stoic Studio’s role-playing sequel is the pick of the bunch from this week’s digital releases on PlayStation platforms.
Elsewhere, Carmageddon: Max Damage sees the return of a franchise no one was missing. And based on preview build of the game we’ve seen, it’s unlikely to be making a big comeback either.
Boss fight extravaganza Furi looks like a lot of fun though, and is free for all PlayStation Plus subscribers.
Over on PS Vita, fans of ZX Spectrum classics such as Head over Heels and Knightlore might enjoy Lumo, a game that looks to channel the best of those UK computer classics with a modern design sensibility.
And sorry PlayStation 3 owners. No games for you.
Here’s the full line-up.
PlayStation Store releases for 5th July 2016.
- The Banner Saga 2
- Carmageddon: Max Damage (Released 8th)
- Energy Hook
- Hawken (Released 8th)
- Lost Sea
- Metal Slug Anthology (PS2)
- Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII
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. But it's hard to do that in the current financial climate. If you'd like to help us fund these aims, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
