The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 9/1/2015
The Drop

Some weeks come around and there’s so much good gaming compressed into such a small space of time, panic attacks are induced. This is one such week. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Mad Max, Grow Home, Super Time Force Ultra, and much more all launch on PlayStation this week. Bid farewell to your free time.

The long awaited return of tactical espionage action sneaks onto PS4 this week. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain brings a tremendous open world to all the stealthy proceedings, with gameplay heavily rooted in the precedent set by Peace Walker. Control Big Boss like never before, build up and outfit Mother Base, and unravel the mysterious story woven across more than a decade of games.

If you’re not entirely the stealthy type, why not get a little grease on your fingers with Mad Max, coming to PS4. Developed by Avalanche Studios (Just Cause series), this brutal open-world action game gives players control of grizzled survivor Max and his beat-up-but-ever-reliable Magnum Opus.

That’s just the start, folks! For the full list of new games coming to PlayStation, read on. And enjoy the Drop!
