The Drop: Week of September 2nd 2013 New Releases

Rey Gutierrez's Avatar Posted by Senior Social Media Specialist

In Diablo III for PS3 this week; twenty years have passed since the Prime Evils were defeated and banished from the world of Sanctuary. Now, you must return to where it all began—the town of Tristram—and investigate rumors of a fallen star, for this is an omen that the End Times have begun. Play solo or form a party of up to four heroes—either with local players together on the same screen or network players online. Take a stand as one of humanity’s last defenders—barbarian, witch doctor, monk, demon hunter, or wizard—and level up with devastating new powers and abilities. Face innumerable demonic foes, uncover quests in new locations, and lay claim to masses of loot every time you play.

Enjoy this week’s The Drop!

Diablo III

The third chapter in developer Blizzard’s premiere dungeon-crawler franchise. Bringing the world of Diablo back to PlayStation gamers, this edition of Diablo III features special four-player co-op features.


Diablo III picks up the story twenty years after the events of Diablo II. Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal have been defeated, but the Worldstone, which once shielded the inhabitants of the world of Sanctuary from the forces of both Heaven and Hell, has been destroyed, and evil once again stirs in Tristram. Playing as a hero from one of five distinct character classes, players will acquire powerful items, spells, and abilities as they explore new and familiar areas of Sanctuary and battle hordes of demons to safeguard the world from the horrors that have arisen.

Rayman Legends

Players can also connect online with friends through a variety of challenges to test their skill and speed, and see where they rank on the worldwide leaderboards. Rayman Legends retains the fantasy appeal of its predecessor while adding a multitude of clever and entertaining gaming modes, new characters, new environments and a new soundtrack. The award-winning team of artists, designers and composers behind the UbiArt framework has also returned with an advanced engine to include multi-dimensional gameplay elements, an improved lighting system and updated game rendering that elevate Rayman Legends to the next level.

How have this many days passed by, with no one correcting the mention of Chaos Code and Atelier Meruru in the blog post? Poor Chaos Code sounds like a random DLC for brothers under that Mis-aligned header, and Meruru is probably one of the biggest stealth releases coming to Vita.

Guess it’s too late now (as long as they’re mentioned properly in the blogpost later today), but it’s amazing such errors persist for so long on such a blog.
