The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 10/21/2014

Ryan Clements's Avatar Posted by Senior Specialist, SIEA Social Media

The Drop

Do you lie awake at night, dreaming of cutting down demons with a katana? Or perhaps you muse about which element you would prefer to bend to your will? Well friend, this week’s new PlayStation games have somehow catered to your rather atypical interests.

The Legend of Korra is coming to PS4 and PS3 this week, telling the story of the strong, stubborn avatar and her connection to the four elements. Developed by PlatinumGames, this third-person action game tasks players with unlocking Korra’s bending abilities and using devastating combos against her opponents.

And for those craving the katana, Shadow Warrior also launches this week on PS4. Use the katana (or a bevy of insane firearms) to mow down demons and yakuza alike in this reimagining of a cult classic.

For a full list of games coming to PlayStation this week, read on, and enjoy the Drop!


Escape Goat 2
F1 2014
Fluster Cluck
Just Dance 2015
The Legend of Korra
Need for Speed Rivals Complete Edition
Race the Sun
Samurai Warriors 4
Shadow Warrior
The Voice
The Walking Dead Season 2

New PlayStation Games This Week

Escape Goat 2
PS4 — Digital
The theme of Escape Goat 2 is transformation. As you manipulate hidden machinery, walls move around and blocks settle into new places. Things look different when you’re done with the room (especially if you employ your mighty horns to their best use). And you have a remarkable companion to help you on your journey…
F1 2014
PS3 — Digital, Retail
Feel the power of new turbocharged F1 cars in the most accessible F1 game yet, including a new driver evaluation system to adjust the game to your level, shorter career options, and new Very Easy mode. F1 2014 features all the cars, drivers and circuits from the 2014 F1 world championship.
Fluster Cluck
PS4 — Digital
Own the Koop! Use blasters, missiles, turrets, and mines to take down your friends’ UFOs. Drag them to the Chikkinizer while you ignore their whining. Shout taunts at full volume as the chikkins fly, for they cannot mute the Fluster Cluck Master.
Just Dance 2015
PS4, PS3 — Digital, Retail
With more than 50 million copies of Just Dance titles in homes around the world, players are as important as ever, and the new features in Just Dance 2015 bring people together in more ways than ever before.
The Legend of Korra
PS4, PS3 — Digital
An ancient evil force has emerged from the portals and threatens the balance of both worlds! Only the Avatar stands a chance in defeating this new threat! Wield the power of all four elements — water, earth, fire, and air, as only the Avatar can!
Need for Speed Rivals Complete Edition
PS4, PS3 — Retail
Players will get the chance to take the rivalry between cops and racers to Redview County with even more cars. Play as either a cop or racer, where each side of the law has its own set of high stakes challenges, rewards and consequences. Risk everything in the ultimate high stakes rivalry.
Race the Sun
PS4, PS3, PS Vita — Digital (Three Way Cross Buy)
You are a solar-powered craft. The sun is your death timer. Hurtle towards the sunset at breakneck speed in a futile race against time. Delay the inevitable by catching speed boosts which reverse the setting sun – if only for a moment. Race The Sun is inspired by arcade games of the past with a focus on high scores, short game sessions, and pure fun mingled with nerve-wracking tension.
Samurai Warriors 4
PS4, PS3, PS Vita — Digital (PS4 at Retail)
With the series celebrating its 10th anniversary, the main Story Mode has been overhauled, with two primary ways to play: Regional play, which focuses on the heroic actions of individual warriors throughout the land and A Land United, which focuses on the final years of the turbulent Warring States period.
Shadow Warrior
PS4 — Digital, Retail
Shadow Warrior is a reimagining of the cult classic FPS from developer Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital. Blending the viciously over-the-top gunplay of its predecessor with the elegant precision of the powerful katana, Shadow Warrior is an imaginative take on the classic arcade-style shooter.
The Voice
PS3 — Digital, Retail
The Voice brings all the excitement of the hit TV show to your living room. From the Blind Auditions, to the Battle Rounds, all the way to the Finale, experience the TV show with the ultimate goal of being named “The Voice.”
The Walking Dead: Season 2
PS4 — Digital, Retail
The Walking Dead: Season Two, a five-part game series that continues the story of Clementine, a young girl orphaned by the undead apocalypse. Left to fend for herself, she has been forced to learn how to survive in a world gone mad.

Would love to know what sales we’ll be having, like how it was back with Weekly PS Plus offerings :P

Will give Race the Sun a try ‘long as its not too pricey.

    This is subject to change, but Race the Sun should be $9.99 for US pricing. ^_^

Absolutely nothing for me. Not a big deal though since I’ve just discovered how much I enjoy playing PIX the Cat… tried it last night and expected to delete it within 5 minutes, but I played for an hour.

Derty555 said:

October 19th, 10:03 am

I have too many unfinished games as is, none of these really stand our for me so that’s good.

Derty555 said:

October 19th, 10:04 am

Hey Ryan,
I want a new Tenchu or an HD collection with trophies of the previous games pass it on.

Todoh789 said:

October 19th, 10:11 am

Oh $10 sounds nice. I’ve heard lots about the game so maybe I’ll finally get it.
Who owns the Tenchu license? Would be nice to have the PSX Classics on US PSN, especially the JP versions since they had some content not in the English releases.

TD-TheTwins said:

Astroking112 said:

Sgt_0951 said:

Haven’t played the F1 games in a while. If I can scrap up $60 somewhere (trying to save to buy a truck also), I might give it a go.

JohngPR said:

October 19th, 10:21 am

Have Korra pre-ordered. Huge fan of the show, can’t wait to play it.

Two games from Platinum in a span of a week. Awesome!

MissFire94 said:

October 19th, 10:48 am

Are any of these new PS Vita games being added to the PSTV compatible lineup at release, or is that something you guys work on after a game comes out?

starry_nights said:

October 19th, 10:50 am

Is there a platinum for season 2 of The Walking Dead on PS4?

Skater_Ricky said:

October 19th, 10:51 am

You missed a game Ryan.

– Battlefield 4 Premium Edition for PS4 and PS3.

Could you bring some more Preorder game’s for PS4. I know allot of gamer’s want to take up that buy $100 worth of game’s get $15 back in PS Store Credit. Example: Project Car’s – Release Date March 17th 2015.

Hycotuss said:

October 19th, 10:53 am

Does the Walking Dead series have cross-save between the PS3 and PS4 versions? I have Season 1 beat on PS3 and only played Season 2 ep. 1 on PS3. If I get Season 2 on PS4 will my save carry over?

Natsuko-21 said:

October 19th, 10:57 am

is lego batman 3 for the ps4 going to be available digitally for pre order

JohngPR said:

October 19th, 11:16 am

Ryyyyaaaaan. Any idea if Korra on PS4 is 30fps or 60? Already have it pre-ordered but just curious. Given Platinum’s pedigree, I’m guessing 60fps.

Remmy8199 said:

October 19th, 11:18 am

Eh, not much for me this week. I might check out Race the Sun eventually, but I’m good for now.

Fnord said:

October 19th, 11:21 am

Race The Sun it is. Looks pretty sweet.

stalepie said:

October 19th, 11:22 am

dang, I wish F1 2014 was for PS4

dkarlowicz10 said:

October 19th, 11:50 am

The Legend of Korra is coming to PS3/4 but why not Vita. After all it is also coming to 3DS. Same with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the OOZE. Its coming to PS3 and 3DS, but not the Vita. These 3rd party games need to start coming to Vita as well. Why do they consistently show up on 3DS but not on Vita? Same thing with Pac Man an Ghostly Adventures and with Resident Evil Revelations, Castlevania and many others. My preferred handheld is Vita, but I want to see more popular brand name games on it.

IXIPh3nom27IXI said:

October 19th, 11:51 am

Still no DRIVECLUB PS Plus Edition!? Is it still coming out?

JohngPR said:

October 19th, 11:58 am

Pretty sure the 3DS game is different from the PS3/PS4 one.

Your point still stands though.

djsaiyan said:

October 19th, 12:03 pm

Why do third party games come to 3DS and not Vita?

There are 44 million reasons for one, and around 10 million for the other.

For some publishers/developers, that’s not worth it. Which is a bit silly considering how good the attach rate is for games on teh Vita, but, it is what it is.

djsaiyan said:

October 19th, 12:05 pm

Now that said, I think just Korra for me this week. Going to hold off on Shadow Warrior until I clear out some backlog.

CadeMan11 said:

October 19th, 12:17 pm

I really hope Korra comes to PS Now. I only have the PS TV, and since my 60gb launch PS3 has a billion problems and the warranty is expired, I don’t have a system to play it on.

SeanStrange said:

October 19th, 12:25 pm

Samurai Warriors 4 HYPE.

plaztiksyke said:

October 19th, 12:34 pm

will Legend of Korra and/or Just Dance 2015 be cross-buy?

it was already confirmed that TellTale will be screwing all the long-time fans again by not having cross-buy for … well, anything. I wouldn’t mind as much if TellTale actually fixed their core engine’s continued problems with audio stuttering, long pauses in scenes that totally interrupt the story/action, etc. I’m so disappointed that after an amazing debut on PlayStation 3 with Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse, nearly everything since then has been shovelware.

Asimb0mb said:

October 19th, 12:34 pm

I can’t wait for The Legend of Korra! I hope it lives up to the fans’ expectations!

DGizzle09 said:

October 19th, 1:10 pm

I wonder when is ps online have PS 2 games online? I miss playing racing games is days past. La street, pimp my ride, NSF most wanted, carbon. Bring them back to us please!!!!!!

HuckQ said:

October 19th, 1:29 pm

I suggest that from now on you should note which Vita games coming out are compatible with Playstation TV.
