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.
