One of the most highly anticipated games of the year arrives this week as Watch_Dogs finally sneaks out of the shadows to cause some trouble with the help of modern technology. On the PlayStation front, Watch_Dogs will be joined by a quartet of new games for the PlayStation Vita, as well as the PlayStation 3's free-to-play aerial combat game, Ace Combat Infinity.
It's feels like it has taken Watch_Dogs forever to get here but, come tomorrow, gamers on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 will finally be able to take control of Aiden Pearce, who can then in turn take control of the city with the help of his spiffy cell phone.
“You'll tap into the city's omnipresent security cameras, download personal information, control systems such as traffic lights and the electrical grid to stop a chase, and more,” reads the descrpition on the PlayStation Blog. “Get it this week for 60 minutes of additional gameplay only on PS4 and PS3.”
While Watch_Dogs is the PS4's only new game this week, the PS3 will also be getting a heaping helping of dogfights and totally relevant Top Gun references as Ace Combat Infinity screams onto the scene.
Players will be able to jump into this jet fighting game free of charge, with additional craft and upgrades available for those willing to fork over a little dough. From single player campaign missions to online multiplayer, just step into the cockpit and get ready to fly.
But those of you gaming on the go certainly don't have to feel left out this week, as the PlayStation Vita is getting four new titles to beef up its collection.
Lemmings Touch brings all of the fun of sending your mindless minions out to do your bidding (and quite possibly meet their doom), while The Sly Cooper Collection offers up the three original Sly games with some shiny new graphics, giving players a chance to dive into the history of one of PlayStation's most notorious characters.
Also on offer are a pair of localized Japanese games that players have been waiting quite a while to get their hands on here in the states.
First up is Mind Zero, a dungeon-crawling RPG.
“Play as Kei, a high school student whose life turns upside down when he forms a contract with a 'MIND,' a weapon/being with deadly powers,” reads the game launch announcement. “With the government and other forces trailing him and his friends, Kei will need to discover the secret behind MIND.”
Also up for grabs on the Vita is Monster Monpiece, a digital-only RPG featuring an army of Monster Girls, ready to charge into battle and fight for your glory.
Look for all of that to arrive on PlayStation consoles Tuesday afternoon.
