Bend Studio has created a challenging and unpredictable open world that will keep you guessing. Plan ahead or suffer the consequences.

NetherRealm’s Mortal Kombat 11 also drops next week, with iconic characters like Sub-Zero and Scorpion facing off with newcomers including the time-shifting Geras and multi-limbed Kollector. Which fighter will you bring into battle first?

    Finally we get our hands on both Days Gone and Mortal Kombat 11. I’ll also be getting Jupiter & Mars and A Chair in the Room for my PSVR.

  • Days Gone, Mortal Kombat 11, and Jupiter & Mars for me. Gonna be a great week next week.

  • Sweet, what a week.

  • dkarlowicz10

    not a fan of the revised website. I find it harder to find stuff. The old style was so much better. And Days Gone looks fantastic by the way.

    • Yeah honestly lol I wanted to see if a dev replied to one of my comments and I had to Google the article to find it again even though it was posted the day before and the white is pretty rough too

    • I think they probably improved it for mobile users while making it less good for desktop users.

      Or I am still adjusting to the changes. Some of those changes I like (such as login persisting, being able to heart articles, etc). The layout itself is less intuitive and more difficult to find older stuff.

    • Many people have given this feedback. Not a single response. Very telling

    • @ Fuhr31 – Yes Sony typical.Make things worse than they were before and ignore the complaints.

  • Does anyone know if Zeroptian Invasion is a Ratalaika or Lovetimes You game?

  • Days Gone, MK XI, and Jupiter and Mars already preordered for this week. Gives my wallet to catch up on stuff I missed last week.

  • Looking forward to mk11. Hoping it will keep me busy for awhile.

    • SOULREAPER87M

      also looking forward to it and looking forward to the online since the beta was super fun

  • Days Gone and Jupiter & Mars interest me. Here’s hoping they turn out good.

  • SirRealDeal

    Jupiter & Mars & A Chair in A Room. PSVR is killing it, always.

    On another note…give us dark mode on this blog.

  • juliocsc_BR

    Days Gone finally!!!

  • Wesley_Collins

    y Will you all not let games at have the AO rated video games on PlayStation 5 and keep it on PlayStation it is a M17-rated_video_games to a AO18-rated_video_games people good of a game to have a AO-rated_video_games now fix it ok

  • In for Days Gone, but not going anywhere near MK11 until the Komplete Edition or whatever they decide to call it comes out in a year or so. Not a real big fan of paying twice the price for content I can get at regular retail price less than a year later.

    • xxnike629xx

      I’d rather support the original release, enjoy the game, and get the DLC as they come out.

    • Agreed. As long as gamers support this horrible practice of paying full price for incomplete games and ponying up for things that should have been included in the original release, this crap trend will continue. Wait and pay less for more later.

    • Exactly…more people should have that thinking.I’m not saying MK11 doesn’t deserve support…Netherrealm is talented and always make a top-notch product full of details but their anti-consumer practice with DLC screams.I’m glad I have a giant backlog that doesn’t allow me to buy games like MK11 on launch no matter how much I want.It’s definitely a wait for the Complete Edition.

    • Dr_Awesome81

      Personally I thought the $60 price tag for complete fighting games with no dlc was ridiculous 20 years ago, reading how excited people are to get ripped off is disheartening. Now that we’re on the era of $5 DLC fighters, pointless micro transactions and even ads being shoved into major $60 fighting games like SF5 and MK11 it’s the first genre of game I’ve entirely given up on. I can still play SSF2T, MK2 and the old KOF games when I need a fighting game fix and enjoy them, there’s never been enough content in fighting games to justify the price gouging.

    Days Gone and Mortal Kombat 11 for me of course (like many others).
    Speaking of which, how come NetherRealm Studios hasn’t done a PS4 version of Mortal Kombat 9? I’d like that. I’d also like to get a collection of the original games:
    – Mortal Kombat
    – Mortal Kombat II
    – Mortal Kombat III
    – Ultimate Mortal Kombat III
    – Mortal Kombat Trilogy
    …with hopefully online, trophies, fixed gameplay since it’s so unbalanced, remastered graphics, etc.

    • Man you’re the worst…always asking for recycled games on posts.People like you are the problem with this rotten gen…not only supports anti-consumer practices but asks for it…just read above that you enjoy being ripped off…lol no wonder with your wishes.

  • I would have been all over MK11 but this microtransactions that they have added are going to make me skip this and maybe get it next year in the cheap

    • I’ll be doing the same. MK 9 on PS3 was the last MK good game.

    • @ Aquarious6 – Lol saying MK X isn’t a good game is a bit too much don’t you think?…

  • Hey Sony, when are you going to STOP censoring my favorite Japanese games? It is getting so irritating, that I may have to move away from the CensorStation 4 to something like the Switch.

  • Can’t believe Days Gone and MK11 are already releasing…damn time flies.I’ll be doing a very rare thing…I won’t be playing a major Sony game on release date and hope I’ll regret it.Really want Days Gone to be as great as all Sony games but it doesn’t strike me as it.

  • Does anyone know which languages are supported by the US Store Version of “days gone”?

  • The game is just hours away from release and reviews are not looking great. Not bad either just ok. I hope the devs can fix it and make dull zombie games great again.

    • Digital Foundry has a good technical overview of the game that is really worth a look.
