The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 10/10/2017

Death has no dominion over you. Middle-earth: Shadow of War launches October 10 on PS4.

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

The Gravewalker returns to continue the war with Sauron and his dark forces. Rally behind the Bright Lord’s banners and press the attack in Middle-earth: Shadow of War, which launches October 10 on PS4.

Set after the events of its predecessor, Middle-earth: Shadow of War once again follows the skilled warrior Talion and the fearsome wraith Celebrimbor. Stalk the fortresses of Mordor, hone Talion’s skills, and build an army of loyal soldiers to wage war within a refined Nemesis system. Nearly every aspect of the original game has been expanded in Shadow of War for a deeper, more spectacular quest of vengence.

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

Evil Within 2 and Raiden IV retail for me.

Looks like I might need to check out Semispheres and Squareboy Vs Bullies on Vita.

Is Always Sometimes Monsters going to find its way over to the Vita? Seems like it would be a great fit!

Definitely going to grab that as well as The Invisible Hours!

    JimmyLSanchez said:

    October 7th, 9:21 am

    Hey sorry you cant afford PSVR, no wonder you bash it. People who bash it cant afford PSVR, people who love it obviously can afford one, like me! PSVR is great, Vita was really good in its heyday and yes we do need another handheld, but give it time.

    PixelProV1 said:

    October 7th, 12:13 pm

    The guy Jimmy is not only very assumptive but coming off like a human Billboard for Sony, Volunteer pitch man lol.
    Coming from an HTV Vive owner the PSVR is lackluster and more like a “toy” version for those who really cant afford the real deal.
    See Jimmy i can play that dumb game too ! Can also prove what i own very easily…

    God-Of-Lyf said:

    October 8th, 1:40 pm

    Who said VR was replacing the Vita in the first place? And I too own the PSVR, and the Vive as well as the Rift and see no point in you trying to toot your horn. Why bash on someone who may or may not be able to afford the latest technology. Enjoy what you own and don’t worry about the other guy. But back on topic, Vita and VR are and always will be two different beasts…!

I don’t understand all the love for the PS Vita. Sony gave it its day in the sun, but it never gave PSTV the same treatment.

Seriously, I’ll never understand why they limited sales and customers by making them choose between the Vita and PSTV on the same account. (I love my PSTV, and I would have treated a Vita with equal respect.) That’s almost as bad as Sony’s stupid proprietary memory cards. They never even gave the U.S. market the 64 GB card. (I got mine on Amazon, but that’s beside the point).

Anyway, just had to add my 2 cents on the Vita and PSTV. For whatever reason Sony really showed no love for U.S. customers in that area.

    JimmyLSanchez said:

    October 7th, 9:22 am

    I had to do the same, but instead of Amazon, GS for the 64GB card to use on the PSTV. It def got screwed all around, not just N. America but worldwide.

    makoto788 said:

    October 10th, 7:26 am

    I have my Vita and PS TV on my same account… the only limitation I know of is you can only have 2 Vita systems total (2 handhelds, 2 TVs, or 1 handheld and 1 tv) per account. But, both my systems work fine. Maybe not simultaneously though, if that’s what you meant? I never tried that.

    I didn’t know they even had 64GB Vita cards. Bummer. I would have bought one way back if I’d known… my only complaint is having to shuffle games, especially with bigger ones like the Cold Steel games or Danganronpa series. Oh well, not going to spend the money now on it.

I feel sorry for the developers who put their games only on the vita especially when sony themselves say doesnt see much potential in portable platforms. -shrugs- guess the developers dont like money. anyways.
Looking forward to alot this week i am glad i do my homework on indies not all indies are “trash”

Middle Earth: Shadow of War
The Evil Within 2
WWE 2k18 (early access on Friday the 13th)
Plus
– Alteric
– Echo
– Revolve
All look intresting from the indie line up.

Thats six games alone this week. Who needs old crappy Ps2 games. If you wanna play Ps2 games play them on your PlayStation 2 not PlayStation 4.

    pablikenemy79 said:

    October 7th, 9:08 am

    No love for Ps2, No love for Ps Vita !?? Are you a PlayStation fan or just another regular troll ???

    PixelProV1 said:

    October 7th, 12:20 pm

    Ever think these devs are in work in the sector of Mobile/handheld gaming, that its their specialty, they will make games for these platforms and port it to any and all of them? When you say “guess they dont like money” maybe you are a bit clueless as to how things work in the real world? Who talks like that about other professionals ? “maybe they dont like money” like wut lol
    You also act like these PS2 ports will somehow take resources away from your call of duty games or AAA titles lol, again some need to realize how the world actually works, understand that these ports only increase value of these systems because more choices and selection is always welcomed and again its not like it actually effects you or anyone else negatively. The state of affairs would be the exact same with or without them…

    Interesting perspective however that is not always the case when it comes to the vita. Recently dualshockers posted an article discussing how sales plummeted for trails of cold steel III. These lackluster sales figures are likely contributed to the fact that, for the first time, a Trails of Cold Steel game was not release on the Vita. Therefore one could conclude that for this title, and perhaps many others, Vita consumers account for a larger install base when it comes to indie and mainstream software. Viva la Vita :)

WARNING to those thinking of getting Shadow of War. If people say that Shadow of War’s Micro-transaction doesn’t effect the game, well you might be wrong. Beside the Micro-Transaction in any game always effects a game, but in Shadow of War in order to unlock the games True Ending, you ether have to spend Hours on tedious and not fun grinding or spend your money to get pass the grinding.

    TJ_Solo said:

    October 8th, 4:40 pm

    It doesn’t effect me if I don’t buy the DLC for any game. I can look at what a product offers, the price, and decide if it’s worth a buy. All Shadow of War is asking is to reach a certain point in order to get the true ending. Some DLC can help speed that up but in no way stops anyone from achieving the true end if they don’t buy the DLC. Great, I have to play the game a bit more. Problem? I bought the game to play it. Grinding in a video game to obtain specific goals is expected. Perhaps you should find an easier hobby that doesn’t run on money.

Tjoeb123 said:

October 8th, 3:12 pm

There’s only one game I care about this week (aside from some Senran Kagura PBS DLC), and that’s Nepu-Nepu.

    AskaLangly said:

    October 11th, 4:33 am

    Blue Reflection: Platinum.
    SKPBS: 72%.
    CN4GO: 50%.

    Yeah, it’s that time again where there’s a nice big harem inside the PS4.

Between the awesome VR sale this week, and The Invisible Hours which looks amazing, it’s time to dust off my VR for the first time in months.
