The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 1/12/2016
The Drop

It’s dark, lonely, and an empty house that was once familiar now feels foreign. As you wander the halls and explore each room, more of your family’s history is laid bare before you. Where is everyone, and what happened here?

The critically acclaimed, first-person story Gone Home is coming to PS4 this week. What a way to start the year!

Gone Home: Console Edition brings the beloved adventure in all its mysterious glory, with more than 90 minutes of developer commentary to sweeten the deal. If you never walked the dark halls of Gone Home, please accept a word of advice: don’t read anything else about it. The less you know before playing, the better!

But that’s only the beginning of our first new games lineup of 2016. Command a mission to Mars in the boardgame-inspired Tharsis, sneak through sand and wind in Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India, and lead your soldiers to victory in The Banner Saga.

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