The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 4/10/2018

Defend humanity from towering ogres in Extinction, coming to PS4 next week.

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

Rumbling out of the tattered pages of legend come the Ravenii – old enemies of humankind that once again threaten the world. Take up the ancient art of the sentinel and defend humanity in Extinction, coming to PS4 on April 10.

Extinction places players in the shoes of Avil, a warrior that uses mobility and strength in equal measure to stop the colossal ogres and their minions. Leap between buildings, swing from rooftops, and cut down the Ravenii threat in spectacular fashion.

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

Extinction and Owlboy look interesting.

Finally Project Nimbus.
This Game looks so amazing.

I wish the PS Store would update on midnight EST on Tues. I dislike waiting until 11am-12pm.

Also, I wish I know why ACA NeoGeo games for PS4 in the US are delayed compare to the XB1 and PS4 in Europe and Japan.

I highly recommend Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs. I played it on PC and I had a great time. Surprisingly high production values despite being indie.
The closest I can describe it as is a mix of Disgaea+Persona+King of Dragon Pass.

    That sounds incredible! You’ve piqued the interest of at least one other player. Thanks for the suggestion!

It’d be really convenient if the blog linked to the games on the PSN store or a game page with more details.

I have the collector’s edition of Rick and Morty pre ordered on Amazon and it says April 24th so I’m assuming retail is later than digital?

    SirRealDeal said:

    I do believe that is the case.

I was excited about Extinction until I googled some previews. The developer at the end of March confirmed that the single player campaign will take 12 hours . That’s pretty short, especially considering developers quote the longest play time. I am guessing that the average length is going to be shorter There is no PS4 Pro support (boo!) or HDR support (boo!). There will be lots of DLC to waste your money on.

Comparisons to the obviously better game(s) Attack of the Titans were countered by the developer. Their giants are much bigger and fully clothed. Wow, that sold me on it smh.

Unless this game turns out to be a gem, which I doubt, my money is on this title being heavily discounted shortly after release.

    Game length does not a great game make. Check out the original Metal Gear Solid, original Devil May Cry, Hellblade (for a recent example), original God of War. All short-ish games, but great games.

    Welmosca said:

    @Vergilkilla – Metal Gear 1 short?…hell no.

SirRealDeal said:

April 7th, 7:18 am

Operation Warcade & Rick & Morty Virtual Rick-ality are definite buys for me.

UGH!
Here we are again! 4 months into the year, and 95% of the releases have been by indies. And ALL of them SUCK!
Before indies came along gaming companies were making leaps and bounds in graphics, and gaming quality. Now, it’s all gone downhill since they’ve been allowed to take over the markets with all these 8, 16 and 32 bit pieces of crap.
Those things don’t even have decent story lines either!
But what’s worse, is that they’ve helped lower the quality of the mainstream production games too. Because they’re not putting any effort into giving us anything of quality, seeing how it’ll just get drowned in all the quantity of crap of everything else anyway.
Take FarCry 5, for example. They dropped the ball, and gave us such bad endings, because they got tired of trying somewhere midway. Just like all the other lazy devs anymore.

    I find some of the most FUN games to play are made by indie devs.

    WingerNu1 said:

    April 8th, 12:45 am

    you sound deranged. maybe try educating yourself as per why games have plateaued (spoiler alert; they haven’t) rather than making stupid assumptions and crafting even dumber strawmen arguments.

    Knave21 said:

    Some of the most innovative and exciting things happening in gaming are being done by indies because they can usually take creative risks that AAA games can’t. Granted, there are some stinkers here and there, but you sound really ignorant when you paint all indies with the same brush or judge them based on how they look. Owlboy has some of the most gorgeous pixel art ever and it’s getting high reviews across the board.

    When does your game come out?

    pinguino27 said:

    April 9th, 3:16 pm

    Don’t have decent story lines? Having cutting edge graphics doesn’t equate to an amazing game. Do yourself a favor and go play “Celeste” and you will completely change your mind.

veryhoudini11 said:

You’re an idiot if you think triple A companies are not putting effort or releasing games because the market is saturated with indies. Actually, based off your long, irrational comment, clearly you have no grasp on video game development. If we didn’t have indies, then we’d also have only a few dozen games released a year. Triple A games cost a lot of money, use hundreds of people and take years to finish. Use some common sense before you start trying to be an Internet vigilante fighting the “evil powers” of the indie development. These people are trying to make a living and fulfill their dreams.

I wish that the PS5 is backwards compatible with the PS4.
It should be easy enough to make them backwards compatible.
That would be an important feature moving forward, it is part of what made the PS2 a massive success.
Also make them run and look better with better frame rates, resolutions and maybe better graphical fidelity.

It is good that you’ll be using Navi GPU or greater.
You could announce 26Gb of Ram, but you need to go to 40Gb of GDDR5 Ram.
I don’t see a 2018 release, it takes a few years to develop games for a system so I would understand why you would release them early.

It would need an all new technology for Blu-ray disc reading speed.
It would need to read discs at an extremely high speed and read 500Gb discs.
My idea is that if the laser eye is significantly wider if not covering all the disc, the disc might not even need to move for the eye to read it all, making the PS5 more quiet and most importantly, it would not require a mandatory download on your HDD. The disc drive itself would be able to read it.

    RoughPutter said:

    I hear they’re putting 1 petabyte hard drives in them for storage because the games will run at native 16k resolution. Also why stop at a laser eye wide enough to read one disc? It should be wide enough to read at LEAST 4 discs at once. No more multiple disc games (I’m looking at you FF7).

No pro support for Extinction brilliant decision Iron Galaxy. Pass. As will everyone else.

    Welmosca said:

    April 11th, 11:01 am

    You’re delusional if you think people will pass on the game because there ain’t an irrelevant pro support ha.

cusman said:

Lots of new games, but my attention remains looking forward couple of weeks more for God of War.

Arel203 said:

All garbage. Where are the PS1/2 Classics?

T40Rs731N said:

Super Amazeballs… can I make my own levels and share them?

musibat said:

April 9th, 6:18 am

at last we get to play owlboy after 13 years.

with numerous delays including that last one where they launched it on Switch and ignored PS4 when PS4 had a release date already announced.

    musibat said:

    April 9th, 6:20 am

    Now that we have Owlboy we need Hollowknight.

Super Daryl Deluxe looks interesting if the price is decent.

Tatanka2007 said:

April 10th, 2:29 am

Day 1 reviews completely confirmed my impression of Extinction: it stinks. It’s another shoddy title given AAA price that it doesn’t deserve. I feel sorry for anyone who pre-ordered it.

    Welmosca said:

    April 11th, 11:06 am

    Not saying Extinction is GOTY but I feel sorry for you relying on reviews for buying your games.

SirRealDeal said:

April 10th, 6:58 am

Rick & Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is seriously $39.99?!?

Insanity.

Welmosca said:

April 11th, 11:04 am

Some games on the list look interesting like Deep Ones,game looks like a nice fit for Vita.Extinction looks good but the $60 price tag was a big shock…they should’ve taken the Hellblade path and release it at $30.Will keep ma hopes up for a demo.
