The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 8/5/2014
The Drop

Two long-awaited, rather mysterious titles are not only coming to PlayStation this week — they’ll be free for PlayStation Plus members from the get-go.

The adorably puzzling Road Not Taken puts players into the boots of a tiny ranger, seeking to rescue lost children after an unforgiving winter storm. Procedural level generation will keep you on your toes, and will mean a different story each time you play.

Metrico is an infographic-inspired side-scrolling platformer that uses PS Vita’s unique hardware to deliver an experience you won’t find anywhere else. Figure out how to manipulate the very world around you to overcome unassuming obstacles, and veg out to an ultra-chill soundtrack by Dutch composer Palmbomen.

Other highlights this week include The Swapper, part of the PlayStation Store PLAY 2014 promotion (PS Plus members can pre-order to save a few bucks), and a standalone version of legendary brawler Ultra Street Fighter IV. Read on for more details on this week’s new releases, and enjoy the Drop!
