Here is the full lineup of this week’s new PlayStation Store releases for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
With 26 games coming to the PlayStation Store in the next week, it’s safe to say the fall release season is now underway. This week’s lineup is particularly strong, so here are a few recommendations.
Plausible Concept’s Bad North is a thrilling real-time tactics game that balances bucolic visuals with a growing sense of panic, and dread. It’s game design at its purest.
Video game design at its most intricate can be found in another of this week’s releases, Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition. Ported to console with finesse, this engrossing RPG from Larian Studios is of the highest calibre, with a rich story, and exemplary production values.
Another game with a rich atmosphere to absorb is Yakuza Kiwami 2, a remake of second game in Sega’s Kazuma Kiryu saga.
Also released this week is Rebellion’s co-op adventure shooter, Strange Brigade, Failbetter’s Sunless Sea: Zubmariner Edition, and the earth swallowing indie favourite, Donut County.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
