The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 4/5/2016
The Drop

As ships push further into the debris-littered field of stars, bulbs of energy and spinning missiles light up space as a new battle erupts. Two teams clash for control with a dying star as their backdrop. Dead Star launches this week on PS4, and it’s free for PlayStation Plus members!

Dead Star fuses the action-oriented play of twin-stick shooters with the rich strategy of team-based competition. Taking cues from action RPGs and MOBAs, Dead Star pits two teams against each other in a battle of resources, weaponry, and wit. Select a suitable ship and punch through asteroid fields, battling the opposition, upgrading defenses, and securing a strategic victory among the stars.

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