The Drop: New PlayStation Releases for October 15th, 2013
The Drop

The makers of The Walking Dead episodic game series return with their latest efforts in player-driven narrative. Prepare yourself for The Wolf Among Us, a five-episode series that debuts this Tuesday.

Set in the Fables comic universe, The Wolf Among Us tasks you with making critical choices as Bigby Wolf — former monster and now Sheriff of Fabletown, a world where the creatures of myth and lore live very real lives in our world. Your decisions in The Wolf Among Us will shape the story as you work to unravel a brutal murder of a fellow Fable. How will you guide the course of this violent, hard-boiled thriller?

For those of you interested in a new JRPG adventure, Valhalla Knights 3 is also ready to launch, offering a massive quest set in a fantasy prison, where tyrannical minds and warrior criminals vie for control and — in many cases — survival.

And here’s a little bonus: God of War: Ascension is making its way to PlayStation Store as a complete digital download. Bring Kratos back onto the battlefield. It’s a good fit for him.

For a complete list of the games and demos joining the PlayStation family this week, check below. And enjoy the Drop!

  • Drop it like it’s hoooooot…

  • oh~ those drops they look lovely thx! :3

  • Glad to see god of war digital. Might pick it up now, also happy to see demos for a few of those titles. Its amazing the impact a demo has on selling a game. Pics/video only go so far. Demos make sales for me plenty of times.

    valhallaValhalla knights, have to check that out. Always up for a good jrpg to suck away my time.

    iI have to rant though…music unlimited, iI would really like some attention to detail. The screensaver on ps3 kills me, 5 minutes to turn on and EVERYTHING interrupts it. Please add a much shorter timer. 10-30seconds or something, under a minute would be nice. I hatethe having to have my notifications off to use it effectively

  • nice, vahalla knights 3! For those who are unaware Vahalla knights 1 is free on PSN right now

  • thanks powerhouse i look forward to the drop now great job love the pictures

  • Improved drop format AND reply to comments!!!

    now we are in business

    Is there a season pass for the wolf among us?

    • Thank you for the kind words. We are indeed in business.

      I’m unsure on your question about the season pass… I’ll have to look into that.


  • Hey Ryan Clements ! Could you tell us about why PS1 classics not being added for PS Vita for months?

  • Ryan, you forgot to mention about Zen Pinball 2 >> Star Wars Pinball: Darth Vader Table

    Posted by Bobby Loertscher in 10/9/13


    “Zen Studios pays tribute to the Dark Lord of the Sith in a special Darth Vader tribute pinball table, releasing next week on PlayStation Store for PS3 and PS Vita (cross buy) in the new Star Wars Pinball: Balance of the Force pack. You can download the tables in Zen Pinball 2, or in the standalone Star Wars game for $9.99.”

    Good droop!

    • Thanks so much for the feedback!

      The purpose of the Drop is primarily to discuss the new games, demos, and betas that are coming. Not necessarily DLC, which is why there was no mention of those tables.

      Hope that makes sense!


  • Can u confirm what the Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate DLC is for this week if any. I can’t wait for the Halloween DLC.

  • They generally don’t include DLC in The Drop. But I agree that major DLC expansions perhaps ought to be mentioned.

    Any word on if a season pass for Wolf Among Us will be made available this week? Would love to pre-pay for the whole season while the “spend 50, get 10” deal is active this month!

  • Could you add Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops to the Vita store please?

  • ditto. glad to see so much activity. but…i dont feel like my post was read and replied to entirely. i commented on music unlimited about something i see wrong with it. still love it. still using it, not trying to be a jerk. but, a thanks for commenting on it…makes me feel it was just glazed over. i expected a more, ‘we’ll look into what we can do but i cant make any promises’ kind of reply.

    not upset here, just seemed odd.

    also, @thecontroller92 post 4, ReAlLy?? going to go check that out right now. build some hype for tuesday when i might be buying 3. wish it had a demo, but might be getting it regardless.

  • Valhalla knights is already out through gamestop. Sony dropped the realese date. I think the people need to know about that

  • Thanks for the explanation Ryan !

    So, maybe in the future consider to just mention a simple list of games is going to recieve new expansions in the droop of the week…

    Like this (fake example): “Stay alert in new expansions for the games: – LBP, Soul Sacrifice, God Of War , ……….. Zen Pinball 2,… xxx, xxx”

    I think is a valid suggestion, because, perhaps the list of new games in the especific week, is not interesting for some people, but the expansions of the games perhaps is!

  • If Wolf Among Us is half as awesome as Walking Dead, I’m in!

  • Are we ever going to get the Metal Gear Revengeance DLC skins??, specially Grayfox

  • Why no Marvel Super Heroes demo for Vita?!?!?!?!

  • Wolf Among Us looks awesome. But committing to keeping my PS3 for another six months or so is a tough sell. Here’s hoping for a PS4 port.

  • Interesting stuff this week. And the Drop format is great. =)

  • God of War Ascension. Well if God of War 3 isn’t a digital download by now it should be.

  • Angry Birds is finally coming to the PlayStation Vita… Any bets that the price will be the extravagant Activision price of $39.99?

  • Hi can u provide any info on an upcoming Halloween sale?
    Will it have any psp or vita games for sale?
    Furthermore any psx or ps2 classics coming soon to psn?

  • will the PSN cards on the PS3 work on the PS4 that way I can get them to download games

  • While I like the new format, you guys need to do a better job of putting the image of the game next to the proper description. All you got to do is take the time to adjust the image length to match the description length of the corresponding game.

  • You’re just nitpicking now. Roll your mouse over the image to see what game it’s from.

  • @23

    You’ll notice those cards are Playstation Network cards, and not console specific. They can be used on anything on the Sony Entertainment Network digital store (including movies!). There is absolutely zero reason they won’t work on the PS4 as well.

  • Meanwhile in europe they already know they are getting metal gear rising and remember me on ps plus. And other 2 neat games for vita and ps4.

  • @26 im pretty sure they will but still better to know for sure so I don’t waste my money

  • Any chance we will get the Wolf Among Us on Vita, as I rarely have time to play my ps3. Also, I would like to know status of Bioshock, Final Fantasy X, Snapshot, Final Fantasy Agito, God Eater 2, Lord of Apocalypse, Freedom Wars, Gravity Rush 2, Monster Hunter G, Phantasy Star Nova, Toukiden coming to US Vita market and which dates.

    Also I would like Vita Tv stateside release as it would be awesome to stream to my bedroom ps4 games.

    Also to get high US sales and to better utilize the 3rd party Vita team bring these games to Vita: Final Fantasy Agito, Resident Evil Revelations, GTA 5, Dark Souls 2, Assassin Creed Liberation 2, Uncharted 2, Syphon Filter Vita, Metal Gear Portable OPS HD Vita version, Ratchet Into the Nexus, Gran Turismo Vita,REAL COD Ghosts Vita, Saints Row 4, Skyrim, Fallout 3, Resident Evil 6. I guarantee you started bringing these games out to Vita you will get sales. Also nintendo’s video direct (hint, hint) is great at talking about 3ds developments and upcoming games that Vita currently struggles with (for instance I have no idea whats coming out for vita after I buy Tearaway).

    I think Xseed could probably port some of those Japan only games as well.

  • Cant wait for Xseed Games Valhalla Knights 3, hopefully they will quickly release the new Ragnarok Oddyssey Ace.

  • yay, valhalla knights.

  • Why no Wolf Among Us for Vita? I loved the Walking Dead on it…

  • TWAU and GOW:A going digital @_@. It’s awesome! I hope there is a Season Pass for Wolfie, and why the hell is 5$ expensive than X360 Version ?

    Now make that BEYOND 2S Digital Announcement! Please and thank you ^_^

  • How much will Angry Birds Trilogy PS Vita cost?

  • Does anybody who works at the PS blog know basic HTML code? Why don’t the pictures align with the game titles? It’s kind of embarrasing for a big company like Sony to have had this problem for the last few weeks.

  • Might have eventually got Angry Birds Trilogy on Vita if it were retail, the digital sales will undoubtably be total crap like the PS3 version. So it’ll remain a huge ripoff for all time.

  • @29: Sony had Pulse, but ditched it like morons to likely save money.

  • hey what about Star Wars Balance of the Force for Zen Pinball?

  • I’m on the fence with Vahalla Knights 3. Looks fun but also odd a bit.
    I’ll get it physical if I buy it. Maybe a sale. Still looking forward to Injustice and Y’s for the Vita.

  • With the Persona 5 announcement around the corner, a Shin Megami Tensei sale would be highly appreciated. Want to get my hands on Persona 1-3.

  • Who Wants to be a Millionaire on Vita please. Nice to see Angry Birds on Vita. How about PS2 classics on the Vita?

  • Ok I need to know how much exactly The Wolf Among Us is going to be. Is there going to be a season pass that includes everything for like 15 or 20 bucks? Or do you have to buy the first episode then buy the season pass. Thanks in advance!

  • To: Ryan Clements it’s strange seeing your name on the PlayStation blog but I’m happy for you. Keep up the good work man.

  • God of War 3 Digital Please?

  • Hope you guys bring out some more sales soon.

    Valhalla Knights 3 has been something I have been keeping an eye out for, but will be waiting as usual for a price change.

    *As for $10 credits on the PSN purchases, how do we get them sent via email?*

    Also,is there any reason the sonyentertainment website is not be supported on Vita?

  • For personal opinion.

    I do not really care for the new format. The pictures are not very revealing, and the game excerpts do not give much of a clue.

    Especially for a media marketing website.

    Sorry,………. not to hurt feeling.

    *Persona 4 has been keeping me at it, reletlessly pressing buttons for hous to spam the same music and mobs. But, at least it has been interesting, although I probably should have waited for a better sale.*

  • The setting “Hard” should inrease skill level, not, simply make me fight more mobs to level up.

    Anyway, see you next time.

  • thanks for this epic drop and nice pictures, Please continue this way ^^

  • This may not be the right place for this comment. But id really love to see FTL brought to the Vita. Hotline Miami and Spelunky were great starts, and looking forward to Rogue Legacy. But FTL with some touch controls on the vita would be a match made in heaven.

  • Beyond! I mean DROP! Nice to see a familiar name back again.
