The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 8/25/2015
The Drop

What if you were given the power to influence the lives of eight characters ensnared by a horrible fate? Such is the crux of Until Dawn on PS4, a branching horror story by Supermassive Games. It celebrates classic teenage horror tropes, but places their survival — or their demise — under your control.

Until Dawn follows a group of friends who are drawn back to a remote cabin a year after terrible tragedy claimed the lives of two girls. With an exquisite attention to detail and facial capture performances, Until Dawn tells its branching story with striking realism, placing key choices in your hands. How will your ending unfold?

But that’s only the beginning of this massive lineup for the week. Mega Man Legacy Collection drops on PS4, alongside the stealth wunderkind Dishonored: Definitive Edition. Did I mention you can also take control of bread this week? Yes, I Am Bread is also coming to PS4. Totally toast!

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

  • Enjoy the Drop, people!

  • What a lineup. For anyone wondering I’ve been playing Calvino Noir and Steins;Gate and both of them are worth picking up. Also Can’t wait to play Until Dawn this week. Ryan you guys forgot Back to Bed from LOOT Interactive in this post my friend.

    • Thanks so much, Mercenary! I don’t know how I missed that. Added in! Thanks for the help.

    • Kind of irritating that Ascendant got delayed until September 8th, it looked interesting as it is a rogue-like 2-D side scrolling beat em up with a similar art style to Guacamelee. I’d prefer it be polished rather than rushed, i know Clements was looking forward to it.

  • hi Ryan, haha i am getting two games this week are Madden NFL 16 and Until Dawn. i am waiting for both games start to download from PSN Store likely around 12pm Noon. Can’t wait to play both tomorrow night at midnight

  • Unless Curve is doing a rare split launch, NOVA-111 should be on both Vita and PS3 in addition to PS4.

    Back to Bed is also supposed to be out this week.

  • I didn’t know another visual novel (Amnesia) was coming out here!
    Oh, well…
    Buy Steains Gate, everyone! It’s incredible and we need to show support so they can bring more fantastic games and not get stuck with the “american games”. Japan has much to offer.

    • Agreed. I had never played a visual novel before and I started Steins;Gate on Vita few days ago. It’s really good so far.

    • Preach!

    • Mercenary, if you’re liking Steins;Gate, you should check out Virtue’s Last Reward. I thought it was excellent.

      @The Drop: I’ll be getting Until Dawn and Pirate Warriors 3. And so begins a Fall season absolutely packed with huge games.

  • I really wish Sony would have let us players choose if we wanted EA Access, as i would have been playing Madden 16 already on my PS4 instead of the other system. But I can’t wait to try out Until dawn, looks really good!!!

  • Wow Dying Light has a demo coming! Hope it comes to EU same time. Always wanted to try the game out before buying as I couldn’t trust them after Dead Island. It’s just a pity we don’t see very many demos these days.

  • Where is magic duels origins? I thought we were getting it in august?

  • Mega Man for me!!!!!

  • VVVVVV! Capsule Force! Steins;Gate! Great week.

    Ryan, you should give Steins;Gate a try. :D

  • Isn’t Disney 3.0 out this week as well?

  • Got Until Dawn and Steins;Gate coming this week. Really want Amnesia Memories as well, but will probably wait due to the scary amount of games this (and next!) week.

  • Also, I freaking love VVVVVV. I’m glad that the PS community will get a crack at this game.

    • I remember this was announced for Playstation platforms years ago and I just figured it was scrapped. Nice to see it finally turn up.

  • One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 for me! Will have to snag Steins;Gate and Mega Man at some point too…

  • Two words.

    Steins

    Gate

  • hey Ryan, i has problem with download Madden 16 and Until Dawn right now. it keep getting error occur

    • trust me. look on the store for something free (that u haven’t dl already). start to dl it nd after try madden nd until dawn again. it should work, its basically an issue where ur consols unsure if its safe to dl. happened to my friend with eso, nd me with batman. found that online nd it worked for us.

  • Steins;Gate on Vita for me! Can’t wait!

  • Didn’t Steins;Gate get delayed a week later or was it only the physical copy? Anyways, great week. I might double dip for Steins;Gate.

    El Psy Congroo.

    • I’m curious about this too. I keep seeing that in North America it’s an Amazon exclusive and their release date is Aug. 31. I have so much stuff downloaded on my Vita right now I don’t have any more space for Steins;Gate. >_<

    • The physical copy for Steins;Gate is delayed until August 31st since I got an e-mail regarding my pre-order of my copy last week.

    • Also the only retail that sells the physical copy is Amazon (Standard Edition – $39.99) and Rice Digital (US El Psy Kongroo Edition – $79.99). I currently waiting for my copy of Steins;Gate from Rice Digital.

  • Wow, crazy amount of stuff in this Drop. Thanks Sony :)

  • Can’t wait to hear if Until Dawn is a winner. I want to go ahead and preorder but don’t want to find out that it’s broken or something. Review Embargoes + Exclusive Preorder DLC = lame

  • Ryan, good job on the new format. I like it much more than a boring bullet list. Now each game has much more significance.

  • HELL YEAH

    STEINS;GATE!!!

  • Very excited for Until Dawn!

  • Does the Mega Man Collection just use the NES versions or can we switch between those and the Wiley Wars and the later remastered versions?

    • I don’t think we can use The graphics from The Wily Wars. It would be awesome though, especially on 4,5, and 6 which didn’t get that sort of facelift.

  • Mega man collection is coming to 3DS but not Vita. It would have been perfect for Vita.

    • Capcom doesn’t like Vita. They’ve wanted it dead on day-1. In a lot of ways, it makes sense that SCEA is their partner in a lot of things.

    • hate to say it but games don’t sell good on the vita unless they are indie or jrpg. sony nd others have tried (yeah a few where bad ports) but all that vote with ur wallet I refuse to pay bs stopped them from trying.

    • You make it sound like a Mega Man NES ROM dump is some expensive project. It’s not.

    • The more time passes, the more I realized I made the bad choice when buying myself a new portable console. This would’ve been a day one purchase for me on Vita, and not many games are day one purchases in my book.
      I guess it’s time to buy a 3DS then…

      But then, also, shame on Capcom. It’s not like packaging a coule of NES Roms into an emulator with a nice graphical interface is expensive. Heck, it’s a project a single coder could probably put togheter over the course of a weekend. Old game compilations like these are litteraly machines to print money, even on platform with a small userbase because these cost almost NOTHING to develop.

      When even THESE titles aren’t released on the Vita, it’s more than clear it’s considered dead by most companies. Sad.

  • Ok… I bought 4 games yesterday from the flash sale. Pre-ordered Until Dawn and Madden 16 whole back. I’m going be busy until Uncharted: TNDC comes out. I’m one happy dude right now. Can’t wait for Until Dawn and Madden 16!!

  • Preordered Until Dawn and Dishonoured.

    Picking up I Am Bread and Mega Man Legacy Collection.

    Gonna be one of those weeks, I think.

    • Blog Sony Team, please ban this PSN ID. This individual continuously posts this every week and the individual does not get it. This person has been told in the past to discontinue this massive hashtag wish list because Sony isn’t the developer of most of these games and the Blog Team can’t just make this happen for this person. This person needs to go to the developers and ask for this and not keep spamming the forum which is against the terms and conditions of this forum. Please get rid of this user and if you can, ban their IP address so the spamming can stop. Nothing against Ry-Dog personally but you just don’t get it.

    • I’d also like to request moderation tools. Like, a report/flag function?

      @MAABAB Yeah, I even messaged him personally about this, and haven’t received a reply for like 2 weeks. I doubt he even reads the replies his posts get.

    • @Tjoeb123 I ended up also e-mailing the moderation team for this user’s hashtag wish list as well. Hopefully this is what is needed to get this person out of this forum since he doesn’t care much about warnings from other users or members from the Blog Staff.

    • Dude’s begging to get banned. Same song and dance on every Drop with his personal wish lists/spamming. Get your act together man ;)

    • Ryan, it is time to ban this guy. You have warned him numerous times to stop, but he continues because he knows (in his mind) that you aren’t going to do anything about it. So far, he has been right. If you don’t follow through, people aren’t going to respect you and take your warnings seriously. It’s not as if this person contributes many great posts and occasionally slips up. This is the ONLY thing he does.

    • The hashtags are a little annoying, but not worthy of a ban. He should be banned for requesting terrible games though! I want some real classics to play on my vita, like… ps1 Star Ocean:The Second Story, Valkyrie Profile, Legend of Legaia, Driver, Gran Turismo 2, Dragon Quest 7, Breath of Fire 3, Einhander and Tenchu 2 PS2 Dark Cloud 1 and 2, SSX Tricky, Burnout 3 Takedown, Gran Turismo 4 and Rogue Galaxy. I’d also love PS2 classics on vita. You already removed youtube, throw us faithful vita owners a bone, Sony.

    • @rabidninjamonky Spamming the blog is ABSOLUTELY worthy of a ban. The user has done this for months and has been told to stop by various users and the Sony US Blog Staff. The terms and conditions of this forum state that users are not allowed to spam these forums. Honestly I feel that asking about this every week is somewhat juvenile and is not meant for this forum. If Ry-Dog really wants these title then he needs to spam or get in contact with the publishers not spam this forum because the Sony Blog Staff can’t make this happen. This is somewhat similar to someone else on this forum who continuously kept spamming each week for a Disgaea 2 sale. I’m not attacking your opinion if it seems that way but forum rules are forum rules. If you refuse to abide those rules, then don’t visit or post on that forum.

    • #hastags are annoying

  • Don’t forget the Vita version on Nova-111…

  • Damn, what a strong week! Grabbing Until Dawn and One Piece in retail, and Mega Man Legacy on digital!

    Enjoy the week as much as i do, folks!

  • I hope Until Dawn is as exciting as heavy rain was! I’ll wait a couple weeks to get it, though.

  • Looks good. Can’t wait to play it.

  • No ps2 classics still wow

  • What a great line up of new games, played Until Dawn at last PSX and loved that game, the more I hear and the more I want to sit and enjoy that game in the dark with a bag of popcorn. Also excited for Dishonored Definitive Edition, I missed playing that before and have heard good things about this game, so will need to check on this also. Thanks for the great new Ryan and Kinda!

  • Wait can we preload Until Dawn?!!

  • Where are the psone and ps2 classics? What happened to Towerfall & Skullgirls for the Vita?

  • I don’t get why the ‘internet’ says ‘The PS4 Haz no Gamez’ :D because it ‘DOES’ :P (& has had since day 1 of the PS4 coming out) & it has a LOT more than that other console(that the ‘internet’ seems to ignore at it’s lack of games still) Oh well.

    • HA ha ha ha…Yeah, every single time i read or hear “the PS4 has no Gaemz” i get a big chuckle. Totally subjective if it doesn’t have the games that “YOU” like/want or personally prefer.

      Factually incorrect when you compare the PS4s variety of what’s currently available (not even counting the upcoming games) compared to whats available on the other two competing consoles :)

  • Pre ordered Until Dawn a while ago. Seeing that it has pre loaded already is making me excited! I Am Bread looks like a great pick up as well. Thanks for a great Drop.

  • So Steins;Gate is digital only and if we want a physical copy, Amazon and Rice Digital is the only retail that sells it, but is being delayed until August 31st.

  • So is that true!?
    NOVA 111 For Ps Vita Is CANCELLED!?

    Now What hapen with people like me Who wait and save the money to take this Game??
    I need a Bit of info about that…

    Oddworld New N Tasti
    And A LOT of other games that Promise to the ps vita Owner..

    Please SONY Have a bit of respect for people Who give you money and support you for more than 20 years…

    • Most of those games are still in development. I don’t recall any Arcade Classics thing being announced for Vita, though.

  • Mega Man Legacy for me! Might get steins gate VN one day but man that story is so intense it’s hard just to watch the anime for me again.

  • FINALLY steins;gate is coming out. I was only waiting ages

  • Until Dawn and Dishonored on Retail for me.

  • Wow, that list just kept going and going…

    At least 4 games here that I want.

    Great week!

  • Mega Man. Can’t wait for the Remix/Challenge levels. This’ll keep me occupied until Phantom Pain comes and, dare I say it? BEYOND!

  • Why Mega Man Legacy is not coming to the Vita but it will be on the 3DS? It doesn’t make sense. Sony, can you throw some money at Capcom for the Vita version?

Please enter your date of birth.
