The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 12/1/2015
The Drop

There’s always time to cause some digital chaos. The master of grappling hooks and improvised explosives returns to PlayStation this week with a new open-world playground — and plenty of firepower to liberate it. That’s right, Just Cause 3 is out this week on PS4.

Just Cause 3 features a sprawling open-world filled with destructible elements. Rico is once again tasked with toppling a dictator from a lush Mediterranean island paradise. Players have an unprecedented degree of freedom to traverse the island by land, sea, and air, and use a variety of weapons to create emergent action set pieces. If you’ve never played a Just Cause game before, now’s your chance.

Plus, owners of Uncharted The Nathan Drake Collection have exclusive access to the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Beta starting on December 4th. If you want a small taste of the explosive competitive action that Naughty Dog has in the works, don’t miss it.

Due to the holiday we’re working with a lightweight Drop this weekend, so please pardon our brevity. Enjoy, and hope to see you at PlayStation Experience next weekend!

  • Have a great week, everyone!

  • If you are too busy to publish a proper Drop, you should ask someone else to cover for you. You didn’t find out, last minute, that you would be busy. You had plenty of time to plan ahead.

    • Someone had a bad Thanksgivng…It is the holidays and a light week for games, chill out.

    • Kinda rude.. What’s wrong with this drop anyways? It’s just a list of upcoming content, just like any other week.

    • wow, entitled much?? im shure he does more than just this list every week, and with psx coming next week must be pretty bussy for playstation employees

    • #1) Not replying to personal, snarky remarks.

      #2) Not rude at all. These inconsistencies are becoming fairly consistent.

      #3) He does do more and I’m sure he is busy with other things, which is why I suggested that he have someone cover for him when he doesn’t have the time to do something. That’s standard protocol most anywhere.

    • I still don’t get what the inconsistencies are. What’s wrong with the drop?

    • It’s just attention seeking behavior.

      Uncharted 4 mp Beta!!!

    • @Motherboop: Ah, yes. Any complaint against anyone with any affiliation to Our Greatest Sony is pathologically driven.

      Ooh…Sony. <3 *slurp* *slurp* [/s]

      Meanwhile, it's hard to imagine the usual Drop can't be done entirely in one very short sitting on a smartphone or tablet. As such, it's hard to imagine that any random Sony intern with even minimal internet skills couldn't fill in when Our Dear Ryan can't quite meet his extremely small weekly obligation.

      So yeah, kinda feeling PanTheMan16's point here.

      Some pretty great games this week. Let's see if JC3 lives up to the hype.

    • Better this Drop than no Drop at all. Sure it has been more detailed before but PSX is coming up so this could explain the compressed news post.

    • He said slurp slurp

    • Wow, who kicked your kennel?

    • I agree. There are thousands of us who would love that job, happily take that job, and never write a lazy half assed drop like that. We would be thankful for the opportunity to represent Sony.

    • what wasn’t proper about it? get outside or get laid..

    • Either you do it to the fullest of competency or you don’t do it at all. Half-assing then finding excuse will always result in some sort of criticisms. You can argue if the info was given free or not but the poster in the end still gets paid by Sony for a job Sony only gets money from having customer and the only incentive Sony has to pay for the poster is to keep their customer happy. In that aspect, the original replier has every right to voice his criticism. Wether or not the poster had put any effort in this week’s the drop is quite apparent. Ultimately the point of these lists to advertise products coming this week and if a half-assed work is done then only half-assed result will achieve. No info on any of the game coming out except for just cause 3 and unless someone was already looking and interested in the other they would have gotten nothing out of this post hence there is no point for this *the drop* to exist since sonys blog already has tons of info on jc3 I can sympathize the replier’s frustration toward this week’s drop post.

    • I still think Ryan posts better ‘Drop’ updates better than Rey ever did….

    • Wow does it really matter?

    • I completely agree with the original poster and swallow1106 on this one. This post is nothing but pretty pictures to make it look as though there is any real element to it. The holiday is long over so that excuse is irrelevant.

    • With how rude you are, you would do a terrible job at his job. He’s a social media expert, not a professional troll.

    • Not sure why people are upset with this guy’s comment. It’s called feedback kids. He didn’t use bad language or call anyone names, he’s just asking for a more consistent drop. I would rather read a comment like this than one from some people praising every game announcement when we know they are not going to buy it. Just look at their trophies and you will see what I mean.

  • Just Cause 3 looks great, and I’m intrigued by Chivalry: Medieval Warfare.

    Thanks for posting during the holidays, Ryan! :)

  • YAKUZA 5 OR RIOT.

  • Thank you for a great black friday sale. I picked up a couple of items. Can’t wait for Just Cause 3; I do wish that it also came with Just Cause 2 (playable on PS4) just like that other console. Also Kung Fu Panda is pretty much on every system (including that other handheld); but no Vita??? Otherwise, keep up the great work.

  • Sooooo hyped for dariusburst, do you guys know how much it’ll cost?

  • I can’t wait for DariusBurst, too. Double-dip even, but Vita version rolling out FIRST? Now that’s even awesome!

  • Hopefully I will platinum fallout before just cause comes out. I hope everyone one had a great Thanksgiving. Bring on Christmas!

  • Hopefully I will platinum fallout before just cause comes out. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Bring on Christmas!

  • i thought civilization revolution 2+ is next week? december 3rd isn’t it?

    • It’s the only game I was planning to buy this week.

      Then again it’s a Vita game so maybe they just ignored/forgot about it like Sony does with Vita games.

  • eh my year was complete when I got Fallout so no more for me just waiting on to 2016

  • Is Dariusburst crossbuy?

  • Off topic: ae we getting some cyber monday deals?

  • It’s the end of November and Yakuza 5 still isn’t here ::cries::

  • Can’t wait for JC3. So much fun causing mayhem in JC2 and JC3 looks to be no different.

  • What about the new GTA San Andreas format disc on PS3 is a remaster ?

  • Granted, The Drop isn’t as detailed this week, but I solely check it for the info itself and not for YouTube links that are NOT that damned difficult to look for, on my own. Do some of you know, with 100% certainty, that this is ALL Ryan does, within any given week…? -A mere list’s post, on a weekly basis, and NOT anything else…? If so, big deal. If not, big deal. It’s his job for him to worry about, and not yours. Feeling dissatisfied? -Have a Snickers. I’ll even help you enjoy it, with an acoustic guitar.

    “Happy peanuts soar~
    over chocolate-covered mountaintops~
    -and waterfalls of ca~ra~mel~
    Prancing nougat, in the meadow~
    sings a song of satisfaction,
    to~ the world~

    (Whispers): The world.

    That’s right.

    • Doesn’t matter this is part of his job and deserves good treatment. How many people are being introduced to a new title because of the drop. A radio hosts can’t screw up an artist introduction because of a holiday. Why should this be any different. My cousin saw Rainbow 6 Siege for the first time today look at the crappy intro Sony gave it.

  • Just to be sure to play the uncharted 4 beta Friday we need to pop in the disc than download the file to play? I don’t see any option now to predownload the beta.

  • Can’t wait for the Uncharted 4 beta, the whining and complaining about those supernatural powers will be hilarious.

  • PS Plus games this Tuesday, right?

  • Glad to know Legend of Kage is coming out!

  • I normally don’rt complain about a persons work but Ryan you gotta give each and every drop the proper attention it deserves. Using the holiday as cover is bad. If it were truly an issue you either prep the drop well in advance with pics and proper videos or a novelty you post the drop in advance and use the holiday as cover for the early post. As a last resort you rely on someone else but using the holiday as reason for a not so good drop posts (which includes 2 AAA titles) is bad. Not many of us could blame poor service or performance on a holiday and not get torn a new one.

  • Just Rainbow Six for me.

  • I’m just excited for Earth Defense Force 4.1 being released on Dec 8th!!!! EDF!!!

  • PLEASE SONY! PS+ on 30$ in cyber monday!

  • Where’s Civilization Revolution 2+? Is it still coming out on the 3rd? And what about the price?

  • Will there be cyber monday deals?

  • Where’s Civilization Revolution 2? This game is one of the main releases I’ve been looking forward to since it was announced around Halloween. The Vita desperately needs some love.

  • Definitely looking forward to Chivalry Medieval Warfare any idea what the price will or prices? Cause I heard your including the standard and complete editions

  • I know its fallen off everyone else’s radar but can we get an update on Skullgirls 2nd Encore Vita. Was so looking forward to taking this title on the go, was promised it would be here, and then…..NOTHING!

  • [WARNING!] Dariusburst: Chronicle Saviours is fast approaching! (see what I did there)

    • Yes I see its out on the Ps4 store @ $39.99!!!! Not on the ps vita store. Great job. Great price. What a cluster ••••!!!!!

  • Not seeing Chivalry on PSN? Anyone know where it’s at?

  • When does the other Star Wars games that came with the PS4 come out? Still waiting for Bounty Hunter and Jedi Starfighter.

  • Pantheman is the biggest troll in the world

  • Nothing good for me. Hopefully we get a sale for vita games soon.
