The 2015 release calendar finally gets rolling this week, with the PlayStation Network offering up a sizable amount of content spread across multiple genres. Expect to revisit the over-the-top antics of Saints Row IV with a massive new DLC update, some microscopic puzzle action, a remade horror classic and even a new RPG that pays homage to the beloved Earthbound.
It’s a big week for Saints Row fans as the PlayStation Blog lists a pair of new releases for the series including Saints Row IV: Re-Elected and the highly anticipated DLC boasting a battle between good(ish) and evil, Gat out of Hell. The Re-Elected edition of Saints Row IV is the now mandatory PS4 update of the game including loads of current DLC, while Gat out of Hell boasts the titular loose cannon in possession of some new angelic powers and weapons as he battles to save his best friend from the clutches of Satan.
For those of you gaming on the PlayStation 3 and in need of a classics fix, look no further than Best of Arcade Games. Slightly new spins on classic formulas, you can expect to enjoy Brick Breaker, Tetraminos, Bubble Buster and Air Hockey, all in one package. Also filed under the classics category will be Citizens of Earth. While this is actually a brand new game for all three Sony Platforms, fans of the RPG hit Earthbound will feel right at home in this lighthearted and humorous romp.
If, however, you would prefer to battle across the country in an intriguing new card-based strategy game, then the PS4 launch of Ironclad Tactics might be just what you’re looking for.
Do you enjoy motorcycles? How about clubs? Then you’re in luck, as Motorcycle Club launches this week for the PS3 and PS4. A total of 22 bikes are up for grabs, sporting events spread across superbike, roadster and custom classes. Ride your way through 40 challenges and 20 circuits with nothing between you and the pavement but two wheels and a lot of speed.
Science also mixes with puzzling action this week for both the PS3 and PS4 as Splice makes its way to the PlayStation Network.
Finally, the updated version of one of the most legendary survival horror games of all-time hits PSN this week, Resident Evil. Launching for both Sony home consoles, this HD-ified and expanded version of the original game will let you experience Resident Evil in a whole new way.
And that’ll just about do it for the week. Look for all of that, along with the usual dose of demos, themes, DLC and the like to hit the PlayStation Network Tuesday afternoon.
