The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 10/14
The Drop

This week, Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami’s latest effort in horror comes to PS4 and PS3, courtesy of The Evil Within. As Detective Sebastian Castellanos, fight for survival amidst a deranged world filled with vile creatures and deadly ghouls. Navigate a city gone wrong, where every scavenged bullet and patch of shadow can save Sebastian’s life. Upgrade his abilities, endure horrific visions, and unravel the evil forces plaguing Crimson City.

But if you scare a little too easily, don’t worry: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel launches this week on PS3. Witness the origin story of Handsome Jack with four new Vault Hunters and a seemingly endless stream of sweet, sweet loot. Use the low gravity of Pandora’s moon to gain the high ground, and obliterate your enemies with new laser weapons and ice bullets. And Claptrap. Always Claptrap.

Oh, bonus news: Minecraft is coming to PS Vita. For a full list of new games hitting PlayStation this week, read on. And enjoy the Drop!
