Hey, this list looks nothing like the rumours that were circulating the internet yesterday. I wonder why? Either way, this one’s hopefully got a little bit of something for everyone. There’s platforming, shooting, rogueliking and more.
Road Not Taken stars on PS4, entering into the IGC at its launch, as a roguelike puzzler which sees you trying to solve environmental puzzles, make friends with NPC and try to avoid death, just as in all roguelike games. It’s joined by Fez, Phil Fish’s charming puzzler which finally made the way to PlayStation earlier this year. Both ought to be cross-buy, but while Fez reaches all platforms,
Road Not Taken is for PS4 and PS Vita only.
UPDATE: Unfortunately, I reported that Road Not Taken would likely be cross-buy in error. The intent for the team at Spry Fox was that this would be the case at launch, but difficulties with the Vita version means that it has had to be pushed back to an autumn release at the earliest. Whether or not it will still be a cross-buy title at that time isn’t know.
EA show there’s no hard feelings about the whole thing where Sony called EA Access a bit rubbish by sticking Crysis 3 onto your PS3, letting you pick up from where you might have left off when Crysis 2 was featured on PS+ at the end of 2012. Alongside it comes Proteus – cross-buy for PS3 and PS Vita – something that pushes the boundaries of what it is to be a game, as you wander around a mysterious island.
Finally, on the PS Vita we see Lego Harry Potter 5-7 Years bring wizardly brick smashing to your handheld, just a month after we had Lego Batman 2, alongside the infographic-styled platformer Metrico, the second game to head straight into the IGC this month. You should check out Peter’s preview to get an idea of what it’s all about.
So, to sum up all the games that are arriving and departing:
