The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 10/7/2014
Update: We know many of you were looking forward to playing the promised PS Plus Edition and we are truly sorry for the delay. Our first priority is to provide you with the best possible experience while playing DRIVECLUB. With the high volume of new players and additional server load the PS Plus Edition is anticipated to bring, we are currently not confident that we can guarantee the best online experience. Until we can ensure that everyone can enjoy the full social connected online experience, we will be postponing the release of the PS Plus Edition until further notice.
The Drop

Three extraordinarily different games headline this week’s new releases, filled to the brim with socially connected racing, survival horror, and world-class basketball (Can you guess which one’s which?) It’s a tremendous week of gaming at PlayStation, and it caters to all sorts of gamers.

First up: DRIVECLUB. Built by the racing aficionados at Evolution Studios, DRIVECLUB hits PS4 exclusively with jaw-dropping visuals and a near-insane attention to detail. Race on tracks around the world with a bevy of meticulously modeled cars, and join up with friends in clubs to race for fame.

Clamoring for something more? Survive the universe’s deadliest killer in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror that pays homage to the iconic low-fi, sci-fi series. Or hit the court in one of gaming’s most realistic basketball simulations with NBA 2K15.

For a full list of new games coming to PlayStation this week, read on. And enjoy the Drop!
