The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 2/3/2015
The Drop

Zeus and the gods of Mount Olympus have turned their backs on humanity. Now, a chosen warrior rises up to climb the sacred summit and strip the very gods of their power. Apotheon leads the valiant charge for new games this week as it launches on PS4.

Inspired by Greek mythology, Apotheon features an eye-catching style and technical 2D combat, peppered with ferocious challenges as you scale Mount Olympus and face its many defenders along the way. As an added bonus, PlayStation Plus subscribers can pick up Apotheon for free. So let nothing hold you back from claiming your rightful glory in the fires of battle.

But that’s just the tip of the spear in this week’s lineup. Criminal Girls: Invite Only flips JRPG norms upside down in a quirky new adventure, and Kick & Fennick brings colorful platforming to Vita.

For the full list of games, read on. And enjoy the Drop!

  • I’m tired of all these weak a$$ free side-scroll platforming games. Give us something to make us feel better about our $400 purchase of a ps4 instead of trying hard to keep PS3 customers by giving them all the good stuff.

  • You gotta Bo better playstation smh I’m leaning more and more towards XB1 with every new list of ps plus free games I see.

  • Please port Apotheon to Vita! It would be cool to play it on the go

  • Apotheon is the first game of the year to come out that I’m interested in lol

  • When is the pre order for dragon ball xenoverse going to hit psn

  • @50 Then sell it then, if you are looking for AAA third party support, you”re just wasting your time and we won’t miss your begotten return to this system because you are just expecting wayy too much from Sony when most of their games on Vita cost money to make on, troll… :/

  • really wish we could gte a sale on the GoT season pass, since I’ve already bought episode 1 on its own (buying the season pass now wouldn’t be much of a deal).
    I know it was on sale once or twice between episode 1 and now on xbox.

  • why are things still coming out for ps3?

  • @51 have you tried buying any games for your fancy PS4? If you can afford the system, you can afford AAA games, right?
    If anyone is expecting an endless stream of free AAA games for their PS4, they’re delusional. It’s barely a year old, there’s still not a lot of games out. It’s called being an early adopter. You pay extra and get less for the shiny new fancy stuff.
    I’ll continue waiting until there’s actually enough good games out to make it worth the purchase.

  • wow this game look amazing and good thing it is free for feb 2015 because i am going to buy it.

    and out of what i herd about the game it seams to be awsome.!

  • got to play Apotheon a few days early for buying early, got my steam key on Friday or Saturday. such a great game, I can’t believe it’s going to be FREE with PS PLUS. it’s an amazing game.

  • Really hyped about Apotheon. Greek mythology and Guacamelee mixed together?! Count me in :)

  • Ok, it’s 3rd Feb 2015. Where’s GoT ep. 2?

  • Seriously, when is this update supposed to go live? I would like to know if I’m actually going to be able to play the Hardline beta today.

  • So the store has been update???? Because i’m checking the mobile store and i still don’t see anything about the battlefield hardline beta :( I wanted to download it while i was at school from my phone BEFORE i got home so i could play >__< Sony why do you hate me?

  • Yet again playstation you let Microsoft beat you. They have had the Hardline Beta since 8am this morning. Why do you insist on waiting to 7pm ?!?!? No logic.

  • Why isn’t Game Of Thrones Episode 2 on ps store?

  • Is it possible to now have a separate category for games that can be played on PS TV? Most of the time I have to make Vita purchases and assume its on PSTV only to be disappointed when its not :(

  • I am very upset to see Risk was not one of the free games as promised. I was really looking forward to playing it and now will have to wait….
