This week’s lineup of PlayStation Store releases includes the latest open-world action game from Ubisoft, two remastered classics, and an interstellar adventure.
A busy week on PS4 and PS5 is headlined, we suppose, by Far Cry 6. Ubisoft’s latest is accompanied by the usual baggage, but if you don’t think about it, a good time is also certainly guaranteed. (But, maybe you should think about it.)
We’re more excited by the return of two classics. Alan Wake Remastered gives Remedy’s popular 2010 adventures a new lick of paint and is bundled with two excellent content expansions. Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania features over 300 levels from the franchise’s earliest – and best – instalments and 12 multiplayer games. It also adds a host of new playable characters with more to come as DLC.
Other PS4 and PS5 release highlights include cinematic action-adventure Jett: the Far Shore, mascot fighter Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, and the sublime Art of Rally.
Here’s the complete lineup of new PlayStation Store releases. We’ll update this page throughout the week with any late additions.

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.
