The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 8/26/2014

The Drop

Thank you for your patience this weekend, and enjoy the belated Drop!

The smoke-slinging Delsin Rowe made a huge impact on Seattle during his quest for vengeance in inFAMOUS Second Son. But he wasn’t the only Conduit stirring up trouble for the DUP. Abigail “Fetch” Walker leveled her own deadly talents against those that wronged her, and her story continues in inFAMOUS First Light.

First Light hits PS4 this week as a standalone download from PlayStation Store. In it, players can explore Fetch’s tragic past and her weaponization at the hands of the Department of Unified Protection. This means even more neon abilities, new ways to traverse Seattle, and more insight into what makes Fetch so incredibly badass.

Of course, that’s just one game coming to PlayStation this week. Read on for a complete list of new releases, and enjoy the Drop!

Looking forward to finishing Walking Dead.


+ ResistanceGTA on August 25th, 2014 at 11:33 am said:

Walking Dead and First Light for me. Was just about to jump on Twitter to see if we were going to get a Drop or not. Thanks for saving me the trouble.


+ GoatsAreCool on August 25th, 2014 at 11:34 am said:

Very excited for First Light and the Platinum!

Side Note: I keep getting a page not found error on The Drop link. After trying a few times it works. Just passing the info along. Sorry if it adds to all the dumb stuff going on the last few days.



+ MakoSoul on August 25th, 2014 at 11:36 am said:

Psyched for First Light and Walking Dead! Now the hard part is just deciding which to play first.


+ Shudderdust on August 25th, 2014 at 11:38 am said:

Anyone know how much The Golf Club is going to be?


+ playstantion on August 25th, 2014 at 11:38 am said:

No minecraft? :(


+ HeadGReasE on August 25th, 2014 at 11:40 am said:

As A longtime PS Plus subscriber my only complaint is that DLC’s are rarely on sale. You guys give us tons of free games and game sales but the expansions or DLC for those games usually end up costing more than the actual game. I would really appreciate if you fix this issue and would love an end of summer blowout DLC sale, thank you.


+ AizawaYuuichi on August 25th, 2014 at 11:44 am said:

First Light and TWD S2 E5 for me. Thanks, and BEYOND!


+ skoubyG on August 25th, 2014 at 11:46 am said:

Is Metro Redux releasing at midnight for digital download? Or do we have to wait till the store updates tomorrow. I hope not. How about a pre-load??


+ snarls200 on August 25th, 2014 at 11:47 am said:

the golf club should be 34.99 based on the xbl price.


+ Remmy8199 on August 25th, 2014 at 11:47 am said:

The only PSOne game we’ve had in ages and it’s a card game? Come on Sony, you can do better than that. How about Breath of Fire 3? Suikoden 2? Tekken 3? The original Dead or Alive? Some other rpg or action/adventure game that hasn’t been released on the store yet? I’m not asking much, just SOMETHING decent.

Well, if it has Texas Hold’em I might check it out :/


+ PUERTOVEL7I on August 25th, 2014 at 11:48 am said:

A DLC sale would be nice every once in awhile you know. How about a flash Friday sale every Friday?


+ SLY12 on August 25th, 2014 at 11:49 am said:

@ Shudderdust: http://thegolfclubgame.com/2014/08/22/playstation-4-version-available-tuesday-n-america/

$34.99. I guess $44.99 for Canada.


+ MoonLance on August 25th, 2014 at 11:51 am said:

Surely I’m not the only one looking forward to Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 for PS Vita? Gooo Nep-nep~


+ Hestar69 on August 25th, 2014 at 11:53 am said:

Cannot wait for last light! also my copy of Metro Redux shipped and looking forward to TWD..My ps3/4 gonna get lots of play time this week..Now we just need a good sale this week :)

#MyClementine is back!


+ Ry-Dog on August 25th, 2014 at 11:56 am said:

Two PSone classics from A1 Games, when are we getting better PSone classics like Ms. Pac-Man Maze Madness, StarBlade Alpha, Disney’s Tarzan, Grand Theft Auto 1 & 2, Ninja: Shadow of Darkness, Mega Man 8, and Buster Bros. Collection.


+ Nerroth on August 25th, 2014 at 11:56 am said:

It’s hard to believe the Neptunia series is already up to nine current and pending entries across three platforms:

The original, Mk2, and Victory for PS3,

PP, Re; BIrth 1, Re;Birth 2, Geki Noire, and U for Vita,

Plus Victory II for PS4.

It’ll be interesting to see how well Re;Birth 1 does for Idea Factory International, and what it might mean for other Vita games in the series which have yet to be announced for Western localization (such as the Lastation-themed SRPG spinoff Chou Megami Shinkou Noire Gekishin Black Heart).


+ Matrixdude49 on August 25th, 2014 at 12:01 pm said:

Picking up First Light, Madden 15, and Walking Dead. Good Drop this week. BEYOND!

Thinking about First light


+ Mando44646 on August 25th, 2014 at 12:03 pm said:

inFAMOUS First Light – the first game to buy on my PS4 since Infamous! About time there was something to play.

In other news, WALKING DEAD EP 5!!!!!


+ KazeEternal on August 25th, 2014 at 12:03 pm said:

YAY more Fetch!


+ ISLAND-THUNDER on August 25th, 2014 at 12:06 pm said:

I’m picking up Hyperdimension Neptunia, looks so good!

Yayaya. this week is best for me : play Infamous first light and Madden 15.. can’t wait to play Madden 15 tonight at 11pm

Obligatory “I’d like more PS2/PS1 classics added” comment.


+ Konojime on August 25th, 2014 at 12:10 pm said:

Any word on when next week’s PS+ games will be announced?


+ Gamer_USA- on August 25th, 2014 at 12:12 pm said:

I’m waiting for reviews of Day D Tower Rush to see how it was handled.

And what’s all this about BEYOND that I keep reading. Is it code for something? Should I be stockpiling supplies for some uprising?


+ tusunami on August 25th, 2014 at 12:13 pm said:

Well I be getting first light tomorrow for sure can’t wait to play this almost forgot this is coming out Tuesday. The drop for this week is good indeed.


+ TheGreatTave on August 25th, 2014 at 12:13 pm said:

Seeing this PS1 game made me want to comment this: I think PS Now is going to be awesome and I can’t wait to see the price of the subscription when it’s finished. But I also don’t always have access to great internet speeds :( so Sony, if you’re listening, please add emulation of PS1 and PS2 games in the future, like the PS3 has. I’m not asking for PS3 games to be emulated since I’m sure that would be exceptionally hard, but I think PS1&2 games can be done. Thanks!


+ Tjoeb123 on August 25th, 2014 at 12:17 pm said:

My my, this list is bigger than what was read on Blogcast 131…

@17 (Nerroth)
Yeah, really. Hell, I’m buying the Limited Edition as soon as it goes live on Amazon. That said, I’d still wanna play Noire’s game (as she is my favorite……and everyone else’s, for that matter) over Re;birth 2 if given the chance.

Also, there’s only 7 titles in the series – Neptunia, mk2, Victory, PP, Noire’s game, U, and VII. (I skipped Re;birth 1 and 2 because they’re remakes.) Not only is the PS4 game a sequel to Victory, the 7th title in the series, but I think it’s also a direct reference to that one Final Fantasy game…

Still dreaming for that fighting game to happen, though! (by Arc System Works, that is)


+ CraddaPoosta on August 25th, 2014 at 12:18 pm said:

Can anyone from Sony please address the fact that PS+ subscribers are ineligible to take advantage of the Flash Sales, or ANY sale, for that matter?

The problem is, many of the games that have been recently discounted have previously been offered as part of a paid PS+ subscription. Because many of us already received those games ‘free’, we are not eligible to purchase them outright at the discounted rate.

The simplest solution, it seems, would be to just delete the item from our Download List, making it possible for us to purchase it at the discounted rate. When I got in touch with Customer Support via chat, they advised me to create a new profile, which defeats the entire purpose of having one profile, one account, one set of trophies.

Is there anyone who can speak to this issue?

Clements was formerly the PlayStation editor at IGN, and he always came on to their podcast, Podcast Beyond.

inFamous First Light & Metro Redux for me! Can’t wait to play :3


+ Bad_Brains on August 25th, 2014 at 12:31 pm said:

First Light for me. Looking forward to it!


+ Nerroth on August 25th, 2014 at 12:33 pm said:


I would prefer to list the original and Re;Birth1 separately, given that the latter is essentially a new game in and of itself. It runs on a different engine, tells a heavily re-worked storyline, and include a new set of characters (minus a few absentees from the original).

I would agree that the differences between Mk2 and Re;Birth 2 are much less pronounced, though there do still seem to be a number of tweaks and changes here and there.


+ Catcher_BR on August 25th, 2014 at 12:38 pm said:

No metro Redux preload then ? sad.


+ snarls200 on August 25th, 2014 at 12:49 pm said:

@26 wednsday or thursday for the plus games


+ CalamityXI on August 25th, 2014 at 12:51 pm said:

They seriously need to get a Madden demo out for PS4. I would love to see all these improvements they keep talking about, but I’m not about to drop $60 without seeing them firsthand.


+ gexillion on August 25th, 2014 at 1:03 pm said:

At what time does first light unlock so we who pre-ordered it can play? Does it unlock at midnight?


+ KazeEternal on August 25th, 2014 at 1:07 pm said:

Velocity 2X needs to hurry up and get here.


+ sciteach on August 25th, 2014 at 1:23 pm said:

Walking Dead Zen Pinball releases on Tuesday, too!


+ Lackshmana on August 25th, 2014 at 1:26 pm said:

I want to be able to play PS1 and PS2 games on my PS4.

Local emulation with support for discs and digital.

Make it happen Sony.

More dark souls 2 right? Please!


+ Alenth26 on August 25th, 2014 at 1:47 pm said:

@14 you aren’t the only one, too bad only 1000 limited editions are going out today at midnight, I hope to get one if i’m lucky.

Crossing my fingers for the Madoka Magica DLC for Tales of Xillia 2!

Any idea when FIFA 15 will be available for Preorder ?

Why no midnight release for First Light?


+ MakoSoul on August 25th, 2014 at 1:54 pm said:
