Return of the Obra Dinn, Children of Morta and Outer Wilds headline this week’s lineup of new PlayStation Store releases for the PS4 and PS Vita.
Lucas Pope’s masterful tale of murder and insurance adjustment tops a packed week of new PlayStation 4 releases. Return of the Obra Dinn comes to console a year to the day after it debuted on PC. It was one of the best games of 2018, and if you haven’t played it before it’s likely to be one of the best you’ll play in 2019.
If you have any brainpower left after solving the mystery of the Obra Dinn, Outer Wilds will certainly test the old grey cells. Mobius Digital’s game is a rewarding tale of ancient alien artefacts, supernovas, and time-loops. It will surely be in the conversation for game of the year.
Another highly anticipated release is Children of Morta, the ambitious story-driven action RPG from Dead Mage.
Suda51’s hit-and-miss action game Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes also comes to PlayStation. In truth, we are more excited by the sixth instalment of the thoroughly entertaining and consistent Jackbox Party Pack series.
