The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 1/20/2015

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

The Drop

Grab your best purple suit, folks, because the 3rd Street Saints are back in business and ready to embark upon a dangerous mission through fire, brimstone, and a legion of tormented souls. Yes, this is really happening. Saints Row IV: Re-Elected and Saints Row: Gat out of Hell are on the way to PlayStation.

For those of you that missed the original Saints Row IV, Re-Elected brings the super-powered open-world to PS4 with all the DLC packed right in. The Boss has been elected as President of the United States, but a brutal alien invasion has trapped him (or her) inside a computer simulation. Free Boss from the simulation, save planet Earth, and be stylish as all get-out.

And following these sweeping events, Saints Row: Gat out of Hell is a standalone expansion that finds the Boss unwillingly engaged to the Devil’s daughter. Time for Gat and Kinzie to plow through the depths of the nightmarish underworld and get him out.

And that’s just the start of this week’s new games. Head below for the full list, and enjoy the Drop!

Citizens of Earth
PS4, PS Vita — Digital
You’ve just been elected as Vice President of the World… So what now? Recruit your friends, your family, and everyone else around town to join your party and fight your battles! In this modern-day retro-RPG, you have returned home from the campaign trails for a little taxpayer-funded vacation… to find things have gone mad! Only YOU have the charisma it takes to delegate all the dirty work and save the world!
Ironclad Tactics
PS4 — Digital
Ironclad Tactics is a fast-paced, card-based tactics game set in an alternate history Civil War — with steam-powered military robots! Experience unique gameplay, with rapid, simultaneous turns that blend the precision of tactics and card games with the spontaneity of fast-paced strategy games. Follow the campaign story through a fully-illustrated, character-driven interactive graphic novel.
Motorcycle Club
PS4, PS3 — Digital, Retail
Ride 22 motorcycles with the official BMW, Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Suzuki and Yamaha licences. From 125 to 2000cc, find all of the biggest makes, faithfully reproduced with 3 unique ways to play: Superbike, Roadster and Custom.

Resident Evil
PS4, PS3 — Digital
The game that defined the survival-horror genre is back! Check out the remastered HD version of Resident Evil. In 1998 a special forces team is sent to investigate some bizarre murders on the outskirts of Raccoon City. Upon arriving they are attacked by a pack of blood-thirsty dogs and are forced to take cover in a nearby mansion. But the scent of death hangs heavy in the air…
Saints Row IV: Re-Elected
PS4 — Digital, Retail
After saving the world from a terrorist attack, the Boss of the 3rd Street Saints is elected to become President of the United States. Things go reasonably well until an alien warlord named Zinyak attacks the White House and abducts his entire cabinet. Now stuck inside a reality bending simulation, the President and the Saints fight to save themselves, Earth, and the entire galaxy…
Saints Row: Gat out of Hell
PS4, PS3 — Digital (PS3 Version at Retail)
It all started with an innocent little birthday party. Because nothing terrible ever happened at a birthday party. And yet, here we are, gazing into the gaping, flaming maw of an inter-planar portal to Hell. The Boss of the 3rd Street Saints has been taken by Satan, and it’s up to Johnny Gat and Kinzie to get him back. That means otherworldly powers, sin-inspired weaponry, legendary allies, and also a musical number. Buckle up.
Splice
PS4, PS3 — Digital (Cross Buy)
In Splice, you are tasked with rearranging cellular strands. Sound complicated? It can be, but as you progress, you gain a greater understanding of how the structure works. The team spent a lot of time making sure the controls feel as intuitive as possible. Simply roll around your controller to let the universe move, or lay back and let the world take you over.

Got my SRIV preordered. Can’t wait to play through again. It’s such a hilarious game, and a lot of fun. It’s gonna be tough to force myself to wait to play the expansion after the main campaign. I may not have the willpower to do it.

MRizkBV said:

January 18th, 10:19 am

Is there any chances we can pre-order Gat out of hell expansion without the remastered game? I already got the base game on PS3 and finished it. Please provide me with the expansion link if possible as I don’t want to miss the pre-order bonus :/

Sonicfan11589 said:

January 18th, 10:20 am

Resident Evil (Remake) in my opinion is the best old school RE game, even the zombies alone are scary to face.

Sonicfan11589 said:

January 18th, 10:21 am

I also can’t wait for RE Revelations 2 because Claire returns for the first time in a entirely new RE game.

Alastor424 said:

January 18th, 10:21 am

Psyched to play Resident Evil again! It’s a masterpiece!

Now I just hope they remaster Resident Evil Zero and make it co-op..

maxcoronel2014 said:

Apex_Soldier25 said:

Sonicfan11589 said:

Seiven said:

January 18th, 10:30 am

will you guys be at PAX South? looking at the schedule the only real Sony presence is SOE. I was looking forward to seeing some form of representation from PSBlog and Kinda Funny (former beyond team) but haven’t heard anything and the event is next week.

TheBigSpoon said:

January 18th, 10:48 am

Any idea when La-Mulana EX will drop?

darkswabber said:

January 18th, 10:51 am

a question for the one who knows it…
normally if you own a stand-alone dlc and the base game you get a bonus in either one of them or both (like with infamous first light you can play as delsin in the arena).
My question is, what bonus do you get when you own both saints row re-elected/4 and gat out of hell?

djsaiyan said:

January 18th, 11:06 am

I have a physical copy of SR4: Re-Elected + Gat Out of Hell preordered, Resident Evil HD, and I’m totally going to pick up Citizens of Earth, had my eye on that since the Kickstarter.

Netsuke1 said:

Rezznak said:

Does Citizens of Earth work with the PS TV?

yowzagabowza said:

January 18th, 12:23 pm

PRICES. PRICES. PRICES. basically a useless post otherwise. Even the descriptions of the games dont give a clear idea what the game is like.

ElectricSlurpee said:

January 18th, 12:33 pm

SeanStrange said:

January 18th, 12:40 pm

Skyyplum said:

January 18th, 12:49 pm

Looking forward to picking up Saints Row IV: Re-Elected Tuesday and might pick up Citizens of Earth if I like what I see online.

cesiba said:

January 18th, 12:58 pm

@32

Right?! All Ryan has to do is a little research and put relevant info like PRICING. It can’t be that hard. And you notice when someone asks a question on a game and he never knows anything. Even the simplest of questions. Some social media specialist… But then again, he came from ign. So maybe he is a big troll like all the “editors” over there.

komentra said:

January 18th, 1:00 pm

I recall when Citizens of Earth was asking for funding. I recall being really interested so it’s nice to see its actually out now. Im going to have to wait for prices & peoples impressions before ordering however. I really hope it’s good since I’m a huge earthbound fan.

Other then that I got Resident Evil pre-ordered and am pretty excited about that (Sony please bring the RE Japanese PS4 theme to NA, PLEASSSEEE)

MakoSoul said:

January 18th, 1:19 pm

The first episode of Life is Strange comes out on the 30th. Is there going to be a pre-order for the episode and season pass?

CypherRaven said:

January 18th, 1:25 pm

Any word on Broforce?

thegodofgreen said:

January 18th, 1:26 pm

January 18th, 2:01 pm

Sometimes it’s nice to have a week with nothing personally interesting to buy, lets me save up for the ones I do want.

I must say as well, that PS credit card has been great with giving me PSN gift cards. I don’t think I’ve actually spent ‘real’ money on a game since before November, just using my points :) Pretty sweet

SureBigBuster said:

January 18th, 2:05 pm

Resident Evil!!! I still can’t believe they remastered my favorite survival horror game of all time and on top of that they priced at $20. Hats off Konami!!!

viceforce said:

January 18th, 2:08 pm

Nothing for me this week but waiting on Dying Light next week

SilentSnipe18 said:

January 18th, 2:28 pm

Skater_Ricky said:

January 18th, 2:39 pm

Guess the moderators don’t like me :( I shared a awesome Google Calendar anyone can subscribe to to keep up to date with PlayStation games such as PS4, PS3 and PS Vita game’s. If anyone is interested PM on PSN. Or Tweet me. Same username.

ChillTown_Y2J said:

January 18th, 2:52 pm

Ryan Clements,

Can you please check with your people at Sony and find out when they are sending out the 10% off codes to use on PSN due to the outage.

Thanks!

AizawaYuuichi said:

January 18th, 2:59 pm

Still waiting on Helldivers…

I’m guessing it won’t make its Summer 2014 release date, huh?

GummyCore said:

January 18th, 3:19 pm

When are we going to get our 10% discount code? I am still holding off buying anything from the store – don’t want to order some new games just to receive the 10% a day later.

But then, knowing this Ryan Clements, I am not expecting any answer BEYOND the first 10 comments, nor any answer with actually useful information.
