It's a big week for PlayStation fans, with the first AAA exclusive of the year set to whisk gamers away to a Victorian era of monsters and mystery as The Order: 1886 finally arrives on Sony's latest home console.
The first console title from the team at Ready at Dawn, the studio is perhaps best known for its efforts with the heavily praised God of War games for the PlayStation Portable. The studio decided to tackle a much bigger project in this new era of gaming, which is where The Order: 1886 comes in. Set in London, players take on the role of Galahad, a member of a shadowy organization of Knights who protect the good people of this world from the things that go bump in the night.
The Order has been a long time coming, making this week's release all the more important for Sony's new console. Will it be a breakout success or a ho-hum, uninspired shooter. There's been a lot of speculation in both directions, but nobody will know for sure until the game finally releases this Friday. And yes, you read that right. The Order: 1886 will be launching Friday, as opposed to the usual PlayStation launch day of Tuesday.
For those of you not in the mood for cover-based third-person shooters, there's still quite a few new games to pick from, all coming from a variety of genres. Square Enix's popular mobile card game, Deadman's Cross, for instance, arrives on Vita this week, alongside the highly anticipated PS4 fighter, Dead or Alive 5: Last Round.
The indie deack-building dungeon explorer, Hand of Fate, also launches this week, mixing a number of varied game mechanics into a clever concoction that has the player's adventure relying on equal parts preparation, skill and the luck of the draw.
The list of weekly updates keeps on rolling with another pair of indie for the PS4, including the two-player, high-tech version of hide and seek, Paparazzi, and the unique mini-game adventure set in a snowy village, Pillar.
QBert Rebooted hits the entire PlayStation family of consoles for fans of arcade classics this week, alongside the addictive gem-matching antics of Treasures of Montezuma: Arena for the PlayStation 3. Finally, both PS3 and PS4 gamers can dive into the quizzical goodness of Trivial Pursuit Live!, bringing the classic party game to home consoles with couch and online competitions.
