We’re extremely excited for today’s launch of our brand new PlayLink games — Hidden Agenda, Knowledge is Power, and SingStar Celebration! The PlayLink titles allow players to sync their compatible mobile devices to their PS4 console and with a quick download of the game’s free companion app, they’ll be able to use their mobile device as a controller, or in SingStar’s case — a mic!
Completely accessible to those who are new to gaming, and challenging enough for some serious game nights, the PlayLink titles are a fantastic way to introduce family and friends into the world of PlayStation.
We like to think of PlayLink as PlayStation… with phones!
I’m Will Doyle, game director for Supermassive Games’ Hidden Agenda.
I’m delighted to give you a sneak peek of our new crime thriller, which launches tomorrow on PS4. Hidden Agenda blends the best of games and movies, allowing up to six players to play through a cinematic, interactive story.
We’ve taken inspiration from various neo-noir thrillers to craft a tale of betrayal and revenge, set in a rainy, rundown city. You play Detective Becky Marney and District Attorney Felicity Graves as they hunt down the “Trapper” — a serial killer who rigs his victims with explosives to murder the responding officers.
That’s what I tell anyone who asks me what PlayLink is. Alternatively, it’s a variety of PS4 games designed to be played with your friends using your mobile device as the controller. Download the respective apps, and voila! Everyone has a controller and we can all have fun on PS4.
Whether you’re a fan of gritty crime thrillers or rapid-fire quiz games, there’s a game here for everyone. We love our friends, we love our phones, and we certainly love PS4… PlayLink games bring all that goodness together.
But don’t take my word for it, try it out yourself. We believe in PlayLink so much we are letting all our PlayStation Plus members try That’s You! for free.
With so many game updates and announcements at E3, it’s easy to be overwhelmed. So we at PlayStation.Blog like to do our part to simplifying some of the best trailers and game videos to come out of the show.
At PlayStation we’ve got a proud history of bringing new players to video games, and we’re constantly looking at new ways to keep that trend going. So, it’s with great pleasure that I introduce you to PlayLink for PS4 – an exciting new way to play games with family and friends.
PlayLink combines your smartphone or tablet device, TV and PS4 console, with a collection of brand new games that take advantage of the smartphone or tablet device’s touchscreen and camera capabilities.
