The end of the year is upon us, and that can mean only one thing — well, actually it means lots of things. The thing that it means in the context of this post, though, is that PlayStation.Blog’s annual Game of the Year awards are upon us!
It’s been a truly momentous year for PlayStation. 2016 has offered one of the most diverse 12 months in PlayStation history, whether you’re exploring exotic locales, screaming at friends in an overstressed kitchen, becoming an iconic dark knight, or punching the air after scoring Play of the Game.
With so much choice, it’s impossible to pick an easy Top 10 from this year. Instead, we asked those who’ve transported us to worlds beyond our imagination for their personal favorites. These are the best PlayStation game moments of 2016, as chosen by developers the world over.
No matter which festive holiday, if any, you and yours choose to celebrate, we want to thank you for your support throughout the year. It’s thanks to you, our readers, that we’re able to continue publishing stories on this humble blog.
As we reflect on 2016 and look forward to a new year, please enjoy this collection of holiday cards from our friends and colleagues across the industry. For those who will be celebrating over the next couple weeks, please do so responsibly, and we’ll see you in January!
Four new multiplayer maps in Sabotage feature unique layouts, various lanes for frenetic engagements and a ton of very cool art. Here’s a rundown of what you’ll be
playing slaying on once the pack drops.
Lethal VR is a virtual reality shooting experience where you step into the shoes of an FBI recruit.
One of the most unique aspects of Lethal VR is that, unlike more traditional games, it rewards real world physical skills above learning complex button layouts on a controller. For example, if you have quick hands and fast reflexes, you’ll have a fast quickdraw in Lethal VR; if you are accurate on the shooting range in real life, you’ll be an accurate shooter here; the more flexibility and stamina you have the better you will perform in certain challenges. The more you play the game, the more you will train and develop these real life physical skills.
Picture this: a razor-sharp sword in each hand. A mysterious dojo in the background, and truckloads of fruit flying into the air, all for the sole purpose of becoming a mess-making ninja. It sounds simple. Too simple. But it works, and it’s fun, and that’s really all that matters.
The game is called Fruit Ninja VR, and I’m excited to announce that it’s coming to PlayStation VR today — just in time for Christmas.
Exciting news for all you RIGS pilots out there: tomorrow, December 20, we’ll be kicking off the Winter Season Update!
