The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 8/4/2015

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

The Drop

What’s better than a highly maneuverable, awesomely destructive spaceship? Easy: a spaceship that can also turn into a battle mech. Anime fans, rejoice. Galak-Z: The Dimensional is launching this week, and it’s bringing sweet, sweet space battles to your PS4.

Galak-Z puts players into the cockpit of a versatile spacecraft with a host of powerful weapons. Fortunately, that craft can also transform on the fly into a devastating mech with a whole new repertoire of abilities. Dodge enemy fire, boost through asteroid fields, and complete brutal missions in this love letter to the mecha anime of yore.

But that’s not all! Also up for grabs this week is the poignant and melancholic Submerged on PS4. Explore a sunken city in search of supplies — and salvation. Or fend off attacking hordes in The Castle Game, inspired by the legends of the tower defense genre.

For a full list of games coming to PlayStation, read on. And enjoy the Drop!

    Don’t know if anyone has mentioned this in comments before mine, but now that PlayStation has become so irrefutably dominant and we have all these new people joining our family on a daily basis, I think it’s time Sony re-launches PlayStation Home as a PS4 game. Port that whole thing, import our avatars and saves and items.

    So much potential with so many new players!

Happy Sunday Mr. Clements! Looking forward to Galak-Z this week! Also been playing a little of Submerged and it’s pretty great so far. Pick this one up people!

    Ryan Clements said:

    August 2nd, 9:57 am

    Mercenary09 said:

    August 2nd, 9:58 am

    It’s coming later this year to PS4. That is all we know right now.

Aeterno Blade on PS4 now too? Glad I didn’t buy the Vita version. Awesome drop this week, plus new summer sales!

Any word on what the price of Submerged will be?

    Ryan Clements said:

    August 2nd, 10:07 am

    I’m seeing $19.99 for the U.S. Subject to change, of course. :)

    They did say it’d be 20% off for Plus…still seems a bit much.

thegoods_01 said:

August 2nd, 10:04 am

Submerged looks fantastic! Do you know what the price is?

spacedelete2 said:

August 2nd, 10:05 am

Ryan do you know when PS4 will get PS1 and PS2 classics support ? could you pass the suggestion onto the team the implements features to PS4 ? i want to replay some classics on PS4.

    Ryan Clements said:

    August 2nd, 10:12 am

    I don’t have any information there, but I appreciate the feedback!

Bellalara said:

August 2nd, 10:05 am

Galak-Z looks incredible! I need to pick that game up and Submerged.

    Ryan Clements said:

    August 2nd, 10:12 am

    There’s no greater joy than mech combat.

CrimsonDream24 said:

August 2nd, 10:20 am

Any word regarding the Monopoly Plus My Little Pony DLC? It was originally supposed to have come out months ago and now it’s listed on xbox live as coming out this tuesday, so will we see it on PSN the same day? It’s incredibly difficult to contact Ubisoft about this.

ProdijusX said:

August 2nd, 10:24 am

Want galakz so bad but im going to have to wait for a deal :(

DarkSide73 said:

August 2nd, 10:24 am

I’ve been waiting for this game since they announced it. Finally here. Sweet!

jtg2015 said:

August 2nd, 10:25 am

I assume tomorrow you’ll post details on the awesome summer sale and more?

hawjboi2009 said:

August 2nd, 10:38 am

hey Ryan, do you know how long is Submerged take to complete game ? will it have platinum trophy too ? i can’t wait to play it and Everyone’s gone to the rapture too until Until Dawn and Madden 16 release on same day. Go Hayden Panetterie in Until Dawn !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

gotta youtube some of these titles, Galak-Z does look legit.

Remmy8199 said:

August 2nd, 10:52 am

Eh. Nothing for me this week. I’m broke anyway from pre-ordering Fallout 4, so I guess that’s a good thing.

    jtg2015 said:

    August 2nd, 10:57 am

    But you’re forgetting that summer sale. Maybe nothing you might want but cheap games are always good. Last week was a good start.

AssaultMonkey150 said:

August 2nd, 10:56 am

Ryan, question about the Play 20 promotion. I already bought journey on ps3 so I own the ps4 verson. If I preorder everybody goes to the rapture will that count as 2 purchases netting me a 10% off coupon?

    TwinDad said:

    August 2nd, 7:26 pm

    No, your purchase was no made during the promotion period.

death_nation100 said:

August 2nd, 10:59 am

I can’t wait to buy it.

Skater_Ricky said:

August 2nd, 11:01 am

Hey Ryan is Galak-Z: The Dimensional not coming out on Vita the same day?

    Mercenary09 said:

    August 2nd, 12:32 pm

    The VIta version was cancelled.

    dkarlowicz10 said:

    August 2nd, 4:56 pm

    You know what the reason for the cancellation of the Vita version was? The developer said that Vita could not handle it. yet it can handle Bastion, Resident Evil 2, Gravity Rush, Ninja Gaiden and others.

Skater_Ricky said:

August 2nd, 11:06 am

I think August 4th is now officially showing us that if you want to continue Gaming you need to buy a PS4 if your still on your PS3.

    Orpheus_Aeons said:

    August 2nd, 1:40 pm

    Only if you’ve played EVERYTHING Last Gen had to offer…and don’t have any other platform to play with.

    And if you’re a real Gamer…that’s an unlikely scenario. -_-

    So NO, you don’t need the new “flashy graphics” to enjoy “Gaming”. SMH

    For a lot of people there’s still NO REAL REASON to switch to the Next/New Gen.

    Kevvik said:

    August 2nd, 5:17 pm

    His implication is that Sony is moving its support away from PS3 strictly to PS4. Further implication is that if you don’t have a PS4, Sony no longer worries about spending any time or effort on you.

    Orpheus_Aeons said:

    August 3rd, 10:40 am

    @Kevvik : First of all…that’s very old news. Thanks to E3 2015 everyone should know by now that from that point on the PS4 is THE ONLY Sony supported console. So if that was the case…then he’s wrong.

    Nevertheless…I think he was perfectly clear about it. So IMHO I think he meant it literally, as in “if you don’t have a PS4, you’re not gonna have anything to play with”. And that will be wrong too.

    So…my point still stands. =P


August 2nd, 11:14 am

I think this is the first post I’ve seen on here that had a ” hint ” of something for a Metal Head. \m/ FEAR FACTORY!!!

MrStabby94 said:

August 2nd, 11:31 am

Sweet list! I cannot wait for Toy Soldiers: War Chest next week!!

TeamGreen615 said:

August 2nd, 11:56 am

Still waiting for some news on Rainbow Skies.
Anyone? Anyone? Anyone?

    rabidninjamonky said:

    August 2nd, 5:38 pm

    They tweeted out a pic last week of Rainbow Skies running on vita and said it runs at 60 fps, but they didn’t give a release date. I feel it’s coming real soon though. Can’t wait!

    TeamGreen615 said:

    August 3rd, 5:39 pm

    Sweet! Rainbow Moon was awesome in so many ways. On the Vita it didn’t take up much memory space, reasonably priced, hours of content, and every time I felt invincible I soon got my backside handed to myself. Can’t wait!

    rabidninjamonky said:

    August 3rd, 7:18 pm

    Are you my doppelganger?! Haha. I platinumed Rainbow Moon on ps3 years ago, before I even owned a vita, but bought the vita version just to support East AsiaSoft. I’ve been waiting years for Rainbow Skies, it’s been excruciating! I know it’s going to be amazing though, because they actually put full effort into their vita games. If you haven’t tried Soldner X2, you should check it out. Its in native resolution, runs at 60 fps and looks amazing.

Galak-Z! Finally!

TheBigSpoon said:

August 2nd, 1:01 pm

Submerged looks like my kind of game. Will there be a PS+ discount on it this week?

Fedast said:

August 2nd, 1:06 pm

I must say, I don’t like the Drop new format with bullet lists for the games without any description or images. I have to search every game to see what they are about. A small description of the game and its genre it belongs to would be much appreciated.

pablikenemy79 said:

August 2nd, 3:46 pm

So Galak Z is not Comming to vita anymore!?
i save the money for this and now is ps4 exclusive only?? What about Pc version? Cancelled to???

    Mercenary09 said:

    August 2nd, 4:50 pm

    It was announced awhile back that they cancelled the Vita version.

    dkarlowicz10 said:

    August 2nd, 4:57 pm

    You know what the reason for the cancellation of the Vita version was? The developer said that Vita could not handle it. yet it can handle Bastion, Resident Evil 2, Gravity Rush, Ninja Gaiden and others. I know that Vita can handle it. This was one of the few Vita games I was looking forward to.

    sealum01 said:

    August 3rd, 10:42 am


    I wouldn’t be so quick to call the dev disingenuous (or uninformed) with their claims. This game may have simple enough graphics, but the AI is purportedly spectacular, and this may be more than the CPU of the Vita can handle without large compromises.

    Orpheus_Aeons said:

    August 3rd, 10:47 am

    @dkarlowicz10 : That’s the PC excuse for it.

    The REAL reason behind it is because the Vita is DOA…and a lot of developers are backing out of it. And you can’t blame them…if Sony doesn’t support it, why should anyone else? =\

Is Yahtzee making its way to PS4? My wife would LOVE it if it was

Would it be possible to add upcoming weekly deals in these drops? Or do they come by surprise? I’d like to know. Thanks!

    Orpheus_Aeons said:

    August 3rd, 10:49 am

    Surprise. Always surprise.

    You need to wait till Tuesday’s post for them.

CrovorsAudio said:

August 2nd, 6:30 pm

Omega Quintet got, four weeks ago, a sale price of $25 and this week for PLUS members at $42, now… Could it be possible for it to be on sale in the upcoming weeks for like $25 again? I really want that game, but since the $25 sale, I don’t want to pay $60. Dx

nikki_boagreis said:

August 2nd, 7:18 pm

Hi Ryan – can you inform someone that Yugioh Legacy of the duelest isn’t in the new game section, it only shows up if you search “Yug” under the Yugioh episodes & movie. The update Friday was a small one so maybe by Tuesday it’ll be in the new game section. I know some ppl had a hard time finding it the past few days.

Splodem said:

August 2nd, 7:48 pm

Would love to see these ps1 classics hit the store:

Saga frontier 1 and 2
Vandal hearts 1 and 2
Megaman legends 1 and 2
Die hard trilogy
Jade cocoon

And hope to see these games on sale during this event:

ZHP unlosing ranger
Wild arms xf
Vanguard bandits
Parasite eve

    XxSTORM_FRONTxX said:

    August 3rd, 9:08 am

    I would love to see Ehrgeiz hit the store. now that’s a PS1 classic

Hakumen__ said:

August 2nd, 10:27 pm

My wallet is grateful: I won’t buy any new games this week.

Can only hope there will be PS Vita games to buy next week…

ShadowStar83x said:

August 2nd, 10:30 pm

Might get Submerged if the price is right.

Gammer21 said:

August 3rd, 6:02 am

What games will be available for pre order this week?

Superstone said:

August 3rd, 6:58 am

Wish Galak-Z was coming to Vita. No buy for me

    cusman said:

    August 3rd, 8:54 am

    Isn’t N++ on Vita?

    Betogalado said:

    August 3rd, 11:59 am

    Same here brother.
    no buy for galak-z. a shame they promissed something they couldn’t make.

Mandobardanjusik said:

August 3rd, 2:02 pm

I wonder if with the return of Deadpool to PSN if Marvel Vs Capcom origins and MVsC2 may return too? I didn’t have a chance to get them because I only picked up a PS3 this year sadly

effrobreezy said:

August 3rd, 5:35 pm
