Out of nowhere, Sony has revealed five new PS4 games in concurrent announcements, some of which will be familiar and some of which, you’ve never heard of. Here’s each and every game, and their new game trailers.
Remember when Call of Duty took you into space, well Boundry is a FPS set in the same light; kind of. It’s a first-person shooter set in deep space – not on a planet, not within view of the Earth, but literally in the middle of nowhere. So, put yourself in this role: You’re in the cold void of space with nothing more than the satellite you’re stranded on and guns. As best we can tell from the trailer, you’ll be able to choose from multiple players – Astroperators, as they are called – each of which have their own unique abilities. The idea is derived from the simple question “If man engaged in conflict in outer space, what would it look like?” Boundry has no official release date, but is expected to launch on PS4 and PC sometime in 2020.
If you thought Boundry was a little odd, then boy do we have a surprise for you. In Going Under you’ll explore offices of abandoned tech startups and use anything you find inside them as weapons. The style of gaming and unique art style should make it fun to play, though, so it has that going for it. The storyline is focused on a character named Jackie, who quickly goes from being an unpaid marketing intern to a monster fighter in a basement. Going under will launch in September 2020 on the PS4.
John Wick Hex
Remember when the John Wicj strategy game surprised us last year? Well, now it’s making a surprise journey over to the PS4. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s basically a combination of John Wick – yes, the Keanu Reeves character – and XCOM. If you haven’t played it on PC yet, check out the trailer above and set aside some extra cash because you’re going to want it on your PS4.
While you’re going to have to wait a while to play the games we’ve talked about above, Biped is actualy coming to the PS4 next week on Wednesday, April 8. It’s a co-op action platformer with wacky physics and colorful art. The developer, Next Studios, claims that the game will be easy to learn but difficult to master, so despite the child-like art, it could be an addicting game for all ages. The idea behind the game is to work with your partner to solve puzzles and overcome challenges, but you can also play by yourself, which should make it more entertaining.
Windbound reminds me a little of Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening and one of those weird games you see on Facebook that says it has 5 million players but nobody ever plays it. It’s a survival\ crafting game in which you take the role of Kara who washes up on shore after her boat sinks during a brutal storm. According to the developer, 5 Lives Studios, it’s survival focused and first and transitions more into exploration as the storyline goes on. Windbound comes to the PS4 on August 28, 2020.
