Aliens: Fireteam Elite and Psychonauts 2 headline the list of new PlayStation Store releases for the PS4 and PS5.
Shooting Xenomorphs should never fail to be fun, but unfortunately – as players of Aliens: Colonial Marines can attest – that’s not always the case. Our fingers are crossed that Aliens: Fireteam Elite, the new multiplayer shooter from Cold Iron Studio, will be the action game the IP deserves.
Jauntier exploits can be found in the week’s other big release, the long-awaited Psychonauts 2. Double Fine’s sequel follows the events of VR release Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin and sees Raz and friends investigate strange events at Psychonaut Headquarters.
Other new PlayStation Store releases include Murder Mystery Machine, King’s Bounty II, and Inked: A Tale of Love. We’ll update this page throughout the week with any late additions to the lineup.

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. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! 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.
