Extra savings for PS Plus members.

The never-ending string of PlayStation Store sales will take your wallet hostage yet again this weekend, with the Attack of the Blockbusters promotion on the North American plaza. As you may expect, this mostly consists of behemoth brands like Call of Duty and God of War – the latter going for as little as $34.79 if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber. No excuses now, folks.

A few other highlights that jumped out at us: Battlefield 1 ($7.99), Deus Ex: Mankind Divided ($5.99), inFAMOUS: Second Son ($6.99), and Killzone: Shadow Fall ($3.99). These are some bargain bin prices for some pretty big releases, and there are loads more live now on the PS Store. What are you buying, folks? Cough up in the comments section below.

Friend or foe.

Listen, we're still not quite sold on the idea of an always online, always multiplayer Fallout game, but we won't deny that there's potential in the concept. Whether Fallout 76 can deliver, however, is yet to be seen, but at least this latest Vault Tec infomercial presents a decent overview of what you can expect from the upcoming release.

The trailer squeezed a few chuckles out of us with its typically dark but daft humour, so it's well worth a watch.

Available soon.

The season pass for Far Cry 5 has been pretty crazy. Not only does it give you Far Cry 3: Classic Edition, but the first two DLC packs have both massively changed things up, going from the Vietnam war all the way to Mars. The third and final DLC, Dead Living Zombies, is yet another wildly different experience, and it's available very soon indeed, launching on the 28th August.

The add-on takes you through seven b-movie scenarios where it'll be your job to mow down shambling hordes of the undead, alone or in co-op. That's about as many details as we have, but combined with the above trailer, we think you get the picture.

Scary movie.

We rather liked Bloober Team's trippy horror game Layers of Fear, but we were less taken with its cyberpunk follow-up, Observer. At the very least, the developer comes up with some interesting settings and narratives for its creepy titles, and its next game looks to continue that trend.

Project Méliès is a working title for the studio's latest, and as you can see from the two teasers, it appears to adopt an old fashioned film vibe. Particularly in the below video, the presentation gives it the appearance of a black and white silent movie. We're unsure whether the whole game will look like this, but it's an eerie clip regardless.

With such a crowded release schedule over the next couple of months, something had to give. Spyro: Reignited Trilogy was down for launch on 21st September, but Activision and Toys for Bob have announced that the retro remake will be pushed back almost two months. The trilogy will now release on 13th November.

Below is the statement from Paul Yan, the head of Toys for Bob, on the reasoning behind the delay.

Build me up, buttercup.

Well, well, well. Hot on the heels of Train Sim World and Bus Simulator, there’s more work to be done: Construction Simulator 2 is building a path to the PlayStation 4 from 12th September. Clumsily titled Construction Simulator 2 US - Console Edition, this is a port of the smartphone game – but you won’t have to break the bank to buy it, as it’ll only cost €14.99 at launch.

The game, which will be playable at Gamescom 2018 next week, will "offer players the unique opportunity to get to work in the fictional US state of Westside Plains with more than 40 originally licensed construction vehicles and machines by world-famous manufacturers. These include Caterpillar, Liebherr, Palfinger, Bell, STILL, ATLAS, Mack Trucks, MEILLER Kipper, and Kenworth".

Biker brawler.

This is something we could definitely get behind. Road Redemption is billed as somewhat of a successor to Road Rash, that old school, violent racing game that saw bikers clobbering each other with various weapons. Going by the above announcement trailer, it looks like it absolutely nails this.

Sure, it's visually a little muddy, but it could be a rollicking good time. PS4 is slowly gaining arcade racers, and Road Redemption was received fairly well on PC, so here's hoping this brash biking game can deliver on its promise of an over the top experience.

Dictating the news.

In non-politically motivated news, El Presidente has decided to delay Tropico 6 into January 2019. The game was originally scheduled to release later this year, but our wondrous ruler would like to reassure you that this has nothing to do with Red Dead Redemption 2. Or Fallout 76. Or Marvel’s Spider-Man. Or any of the other humongous titles due out this holiday.

“The hard-working citizens at Limbic Studios are working tirelessly and making the most of the extra development time afforded by a 2019 release to deliver the most complete and balanced experience ever seen in a Tropico game,” the bearded brilliant one said. “By using the Unreal engine for the first time in the series’ history, the world of Tropico has never looked more stunning.”

No PS Vita version.

As has been rumoured for a little while now, Marvelous is bringing former PlayStation Vita brawler Uppers to the PlayStation 4 this year. Fully remastered in 1080p at 60 frames-per-second, the beat-‘em-up sees you assume the role of “up to 13 characters in perpetual combat against battle hungry bandits who freely stalk the island looking for trouble, accompanied by a harem of thrill seeking girls determined to see their beaus as the victor”. Okay, then.

Essentially, the more fist fights you win, the more your status will improve. Throughout the campaign, you’ll be issued challenges by adoring ladies, which when completed will unlock bonuses that you can use to upgrade and customise your character. There’s a gameplay trailer embedded above, spotlighting the ass kicking and panty sniffing you can expect from the full release. Will you be flexing your biceps at this outing? Punch and kick the comments section below.

You can always depend on the Dragonborn.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim tends to clean up whatever appliance it’s released on, as cheekily acknowledged by the Amazon Echo edition. So popular is the sprawling RPG that director Todd Howard has hinted that if people want Bethesda to stop re-releasing it, they should bloody well stop buying it.

It’s perhaps not a surprise to see the excellent PlayStation VR version top the PlayStation 4’s most played virtual reality games list, then. It’s important to note that this isn’t necessarily a list of best-sellers, but it’s ordered by cumulative playtime. Given the nature of the Dragonborn’s escapade, it makes sense for it to top this list.

"Exact contents still to be determined".

Pre-orders for Metro: Exodus just went live over on the PlayStation Store, with a Gold edition advertising a complete version that bundles together the game, a dynamic theme, the official soundtrack, and the title's season pass for £74.99.

What is a little suspect, however, is the description of the product itself. It reads: "The Gold Edition includes the Metro Exodus Expansion Pass, granting access to all new adventures in the post-apocalyptic Russian wilderness. Exact contents still to be determined, but expect hours of gripping single-player, story-driven action of the highest quality!"

Divine blessings.

Koei Tecmo's released a new trailer for Warriors Orochi 4, this time showcasing a nice chunk of English gameplay. The video features several fresh characters, including Greek Gods Zeus, Athena, and Ares. Perseus is also along for the ride, and even Odin puts in an appearance.

The gameplay's going to look very familiar to anyone who's dabbled in the Orochi series before, but after the disastrous Dynasty Warriors 9, we're more than ready for a return to the classic Warriors style.

Ring of fire.

We said yesterday that Battlefield V's Gamescom trailer would be bombastic, and here it is, featuring all the explosions you could possibly squeeze into two minutes. It looks visually stunning and chaotic on a grand scale -- something of a series trademark.

Perhaps the most notable thing about this trailer, however, is the last 20 seconds or so that appears to tease the game's Battle Royale mode - aptly named Royale - as we see tanks and a wall of fire encroaching on a shrinking space. Hopefully this means we'll get to see more of the mode fairly soon.

Cheaper than you might think.

The Quiet Man was one of those announcements that got a little lost under the ruckus of E3 announcements a few months ago, but the PlayStation Blog is here to serve our needs with a new trailer, with you can watch above, and more details in general.

Most importantly, the game has already been priced, coming in at $14.99. Kensei Fujinaga, producer at Square Enix, said that it's something the company has never done before. "It’s a three-hour immersive cinematic live-action / third-person brawler gameplay experience with seamless transitions from the live action to gameplay," he explained.

Any mechanics out there?

The more we hear about Days Gone, the more Sony Bend seems to be leaning into the concept of survival. In this new video, directors John Garvin and Jeff Ross talk about realism, and how it helps set the title apart. For example, you’re going to need to fuel and repair your bike if you want to get about; fail to do so, and you may just find yourself lost in the wilderness with no means of escape.

With so many other open world games on the market, we reckon this is a smart selling point to lean into, because it is something that sets the post-apocalyptic PlayStation 4 exclusive apart from the likes of Far Cry 5.

Wrapped up by Xmas.

Man, Telltale really is changing. The Walking Dead: The Final Season’s engine is vastly improved, and now it’s outlined the full release schedule for the entire series. The exciting news is that all four of its episodes will deploy this year, meaning that you’re not going to have to wait long at all between instalments. The bad news is that, well, Clem’s time is running out.

Here’s the full schedule, following the release of Episode 1 this week:

An in-depth look.

The tech heads over at Digital Foundry have been picking the latest Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer apart, and based on the above analysis, they seem pretty impressed. As we know, the recent gameplay trailer was captured in-game, and it's all PS4 Pro footage.

Obviously it's impossible to tell right now whether the finished release will live up to what's shown in the trailer, but Digital Foundry covers all of the usual technical details that we've come to expect.

"Devastation is coming".

Oh yeah, Battlefield V is on the way this October. It's difficult to keep track of all these big, end-of-year releases, as 2018's last few months are absolutely stacked. Anyway, DICE's World War 2 shooter looks set to appear at Gamescom 2018, as its trailer is being teased ahead of time.

That's right, a brand new trailer for the game is set to release tomorrow, entitled 'Devastation of Rotterdam'. Details are slim, but we imagine it'll be a bombastic couple of minutes.

Sparta vs. Athens.

Yet more details on Assassin's Creed Odyssey have hit the web thanks to Game Informer's ongoing coverage, with a particular highlight being the game's dynamic war between Sparta and Athens. "The world is a moving chessboard, with 28 city-states," creative director Jonathan Dumont told the publication.

New info on the way.

Since Hitman 2's announcement earlier in the year, no new information has been made available. IO Interactive appears to be saving it up for Gamescom 2018, where the developer has suggested it'll be shedding some light on the highly anticipated sequel.

Exactly what will be shown off during the event is hard to say, but hopefully we'll see some brand new gameplay footage, perhaps unveiling a new location. Whatever IO decides to bring to Gamescom, we're excited to see more. The latest Hitman title was an excellent entry in the series, and this looks like it'll deliver similarly open ended assassination missions.
