Hades – 13th August
This critically acclaimed indie title blew everyone away last year on PC and Switch, and now it’s finally heading to PS5 and PS4. It’s a rogue-like dungeon crawler in which you play as Zagreus, son of Hades, as he attempts to escape the ever-shifting underworld. Developer Supergiant Games blends the randomly generated levels and fast-paced combat with a story that slowly unfolds between runs. We can’t wait to get our hands on this one and see what all the fuss is about.
This re-release of the smash hit PS4 title is adding a whole bunch of new things to Jin’s quest. The open world samurai action game will be bigger and better with Director’s Cut, the headline addition being Iki Island. This expansion adds a brand new territory to the map, bringing with it new threats, story, missions, and more. The PS5 version also includes other enhancements, like faster loading, DualSense implementation, and Japanese lip-synching for an even more immersive experience.
We’ve seen and heard quite a bit about Deathloop, but it’s finally almost here. You play as Colt, a man stuck in a time loop on Blackreef Island with a bunch of maniacs. Using the loop to your advantage, your goal is to assassinate eight targets in one rotation in order to break the cycle. With Dishonored-esque special abilities and an emphasis on slick combat, this is shaping up to be another corker from Arkane Studios.
