Madden NFL 22 and Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut headline this week’s list of new PlayStation Store releases for the PS4 and PS5.

The pick of this week’s new PS4 and PS5 games is Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut from Sucker Punch Productions. The retooled version of the game features new story content based on the Mongol invasion of Iki Island plus a host of PS5 improvements, including DualSense controller support, Japanese lip-sync, 4K resolution, and a targeted 60fps framerate.

Also arriving this week is the unofficial opener of the AAA season, Madden NFL 22. EA Sports says that player feedback has been instrumental in developing this year’s game, which features an updated UI, coaching skill trees, and reworked Franchise Hub.


Arietta of Spirits, Greak: Memories of Azur, and Mayhem Brawler are among the other PlayStation Store releases arriving this week. We’ll keep this page updated with any late additions to the lineup.
