Strider… strode to the top of the PS4 charts on PlayStation Store this month, with Thief, Lego Marvel Super Heroes, and Tomb Raider Definitive Edition nipping at its heels. Minecraft is sittin’ pretty at number one on PS3, but Castle Crashers made a valiant push to try and dethrone it, beating out even the mighty Grand Theft Auto V for the runner-up spot. The Last of Us fans snapped up Left Behind, the new single-player story chapter, vaulting it to the top spot for PS3 add-ons.
WB has just announced that Batman: Arkham Knight, the conclusion to Rocksteady‘s genre-defining Arkham series, is coming to PS4 this year. In it, players will become the Batman in what promises to be the most detailed, fully realized rendition of Gotham yet — and they’ll get to drive the Batmobile, too.
We’ve got two crazy sales happening right now (Back to 2013 and PS Vita Anniversary), the masterminds at Metanet stopped by to write a surprisingly detailed update about their upcoming PS4 ninja platformer N++, we got a tantalizing peek at The Order: 1886, The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 2 is coming to PS3 this Tuesday, and more. Not a bad week, I’d say!
Wolfenstein: The New Order pits players against seemingly insurmountable odds in a skewed 1960′s where the Nazis conquered the world. An FPS that’s old-school in all the best ways, it eschews modern niceties — no recharging shields here — in favor of merciless, finely honed shooting.
We finally got some new info on The Order: 1886, which is highly relevant to my interests, we got release dates forWolfenstein: The New Order (pre-order for access to the beta for the next Doom game… yeah, that Doom) and TowerFall Ascension, Strider is out now on PS3 and PS4, Daylight will let spectators scare the bejeezus out of livestreamers, and PlayStation Plus got its very own TV spot.
Battlefield 4 held onto the top spot on PS4, but Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition made a very impressive debut. Launch titles Need for Speed Rivals and Assassin’s Creed IV are still holding strong in the top 5, too.
Minecraft has taken over all of the PS3s, apparently, though Crysis 3, Tales of Xillia and Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon did very well too. Puppeteer rounded out the top 5 on PS3 last month.
