Flying a ship through space must be a fun, right? How about when you add a seemingly endless storm of asteroids, aliens, world-ending robots, and also a resupply ship that can kill you? That’s right, Stardust is back, and it’s gotten a boost with Super Stardust Ultra on PS4.
The well-loved, high-score chasing shooter Super Stardust returns to PlayStation with enhanced visuals, 1080p resolution, and buttery 60 frames per second gameplay. Blast away at asteroids and enemies alike in nine different single-player modes, and challenge five new planets not available in the original version. Super Stardust Ultra is the definitive way to experience one of the best twin-stick shooters on PlayStation.
And if hunting monsters on a dangerous jungle world is more appetizing, look no further than the asymmetrical multiplayer shooter Evolve, which hits PS4 this week. Choose either a well-equipped hunter or a perfect killing machine and tackle objective-based rounds on a variety of alien landscapes.
For a full list of games coming this week, read on, and enjoy the Drop!
