New PlayStation Store releases

Ace Combat 7 and Onimusha: Warlords are among next week’s PlayStation Store releases for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.

Bandai Namco’s Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown leads the lineup of PlayStation 4 games. The game’s refined aerial combat mechanics and hokey story are as engaging as ever, and the move to Unreal Engine 4 makes this the best looking entry in the series to date.

Smoke and Sacrifice, the open-world, narrative-driven RPG from Solar Sail Games, also comes to PlayStation 4. The game features a subtle but welcome reinvention of the survival genre, and is wrapped up in a beautiful art style.


Finally, another old favourite receives the remaster treatment. Capcom’s 2001 samurai action game, Onimusha: Warlords, gets HD visuals, improved controls, and an all new soundtrack.

Here’s the full 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.
