This week’s lineup of new PlayStation releases include Outward: Definitive Edition, Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, and Truck Driver: Definitive Edition.
Of this week’s PlayStation store releases, most of the “big” games – Outward: Definitive Edition, Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, and Truck Driver: Definitive Edition – also variously feature in our list of Xbox and Nintendo Switch releases. (It’s not that we don’t want to talk about them, developers and publishers, but there’s only so many ways you can say it.)
The game that is “unique” to the PlayStation release list this week is My Name is Mayo 3, and it rounds out the trilogy of clicker games centred around a jar of mayonnaise. Luckily you don’t need to have played the first two games to enjoy this one – developer Green Lava says, “the game’s about Mayonnaise, do you reeeeally need context?” (Can you believe we write this stuff for a living?)
The indie game we’re actually most excited about this week is stylish space opera They Always Run, which can be best described as a cross between Delphine’s classic Flashback and Ridley Scott’s Bladerunner. Expect planet-hopping, bounty-hunting action, combined with slick platforming gunplay and a killer style.
There’s also a new entry in the Cotton series, Cotton Fantasy, and special mention goes to Eternal Threads, a first-person time-bending puzzle game which promises the following in its marketing:
– People dying in the past?
– Inability to change decisions?
– Not altering friends timelines?
– People dying in a fire
– Sudden blindness”
