Hi everyone! The dog days of summer are coming up, but it’s also the perfect time to discover and play a great new game or four. Over the past six years, PlayStation Store’s PLAY campaign has brought you some incredible games, including Journey on PS4, Counter-Strike: GO, Rogue Legacy, and more. On behalf of the PlayStation Store and 1st and 3rd Party Games Teams, I’m thrilled to announce the lineup for PLAY 2016 — Headlander, ABZÛ, Brut@l, and Bound.
All four games are available for pre-order starting today, making their console-first digital debuts on PS4. To celebrate the launch of these titles, PlayStation Plus members will save 20% on pre-orders for PLAY 2016 games. As an added bonus, each game in the PLAY 2016 lineup comes with an exclusive PS4 theme when pre-ordered. But that’s not all, anyone (PS Plus member or not) who purchases two or more PLAY 2016 titles by August 23 will receive a coupon for 20% off their entire cart purchase at PlayStation Store.* For those of you bargain hunters out there, don’t worry — you can take advantage of both offers at the same time.
Let’s take a closer look at the games in PLAY 2016 lineup:
|Launch Date||Title||Plus Pre-order Price||Regular Price||Pre-order Theme|
Adult Swim Games and acclaimed studio Double Fine team up to bring you Headlander, a ’70s-sci-fi-inspired platformer. Play as a disembodied human head that takes over bizarre robot bodies in a retro-futuristic “utopia” ruled by a deranged computer.
ABZÛ is a beautiful, dreamy underwater adventure. Immerse yourself in a vibrant, hidden world that’s bursting with life but beware as you swim deeper – dangers lurk in the mysterious depths.
Choose your hero – Ranger, Mage, Warrior, or Amazon – then descend into a dangerous world constructed entirely from ASCII characters. Weapon crafting, potion brewing, and local 2P multiplayer will help you survive the onslaught of enemies in these unique dungeons.
Developed exclusively for PlayStation 4 by Plastic, the team behind innovative titles like Linger In Shadows and Datura, Bound is a 3D platformer that combines a unique visual style with a powerful story and gameplay mechanics infused with modern dance.
