Destruction AllStars headlines this week’s lineup of new PlayStation Store releases for the PS5 and PS4.

We’re not totally convinced that Destruction AllStars will be the next PlayStation Plus game to become a mainstream hit, but we suspect many players are keen to try a new PS5 exclusive, so we won’t rule it out.

Pitched as a “global sports entertainment event where stars & cars collide,” Destruction AllStars is an arena-based vehicular combat game with a hero character twist. It’s free via PlayStation Plus until April 5, 2021.

Also coming to PS5 is the somewhat controversial next-gen upgrade of Remedy Entertainment’s Control. We’ll post our impressions later this week, but expect improvements in performance, framerate, resolution, and loading times as a minimum.

The Nioh Collection also looks impressive. The PS5 bundle includes Nioh and Nioh 2, plus DLC for both games. Team Ninja says the collection has super-fast load times and supports 120 FPS at 4K resolution.

Of this week’s other new releases, we’re pleased to see sci-fi survival game Haven touch down on PlayStation. Tabletop RPG adaptation Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood also looks promising.

Here is the current list of confirmed new PS4 and PS5 releases. We’ll update this page throughout the week with any late additions.
