Here’s the full rundown of next week’s PlayStation Store releases for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

There’s a solid lineup of 20 new games coming to the PlayStation Store in the next week, with a range of titles to suit all tastes.

Funcom’s open world survival game, Conan Exiles, is the big release. We liked what we played at a recent preview event, but even though the game has left early access, don’t expect a completely bug-free experience. Do expect a free swinging adventure with a beautiful world to explore, hostile wildlife to tackle, and plenty of crafting.


This week also sees the PlayStation 4 debut of Fullbright’s sci-fi mystery, Tacoma. The game won a lot of fans during its period of Xbox One console exclusivity, and although it’s unlikely to be as influential as Gone Home, it’s worth the trip.

Supergonk’s Trailblazers is this week’s most promising new game. With an inventive ‘paint the track’ gameplay mechanic, the game is fizzy mix of F-Zero, Fast Racing NEO, and Splatoon. It could be a breakout hit.

The delayed Death Road to Canada comes also comes to PS4, and AO International Tennis serves up thrills for fans of geographically-specific racket sports tournaments.

Here is the full PlayStation Store release lineup for the next week:

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.
