War rides again. An apocalyptic action game makes its return on PS4 in Darksiders: Warmastered Edition. Prepare for a battle that will rend the Earth.

Warmastered Edition features enhanced textures, rendering, shadows, and post-processing effects, with a targeted 60 frames per second of moment-to-moment play.

  • Next Fridays drop will be announcing Final Fantasy XV! Woot!!!

    • +1
      My thoughts exactly!

    • My #1 most anticipated game of 2016!! Can’t wait, even though there were other great games along the way, it’s still the one game I’ve been waiting! The wait is no more! Gon be an amazing holiday finish!

    • I can see the announcement now… Delayed indefinitely

    • I basically mak℮ about $9,000-$12,000 a month online. It’s ℮nough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 10-13 hours a week from home. Go this website and click to “Tech” tab to start your work…

    • Unless The Drop gets Blackfridayed. It looks like it.

  • Keep the Friday Drops coming Clements ^.^

  • Samurai Shodown VI? Now that’s a surprise, hope we’ll get a PS4/Vita port of Samurai Shodown V Special in the future.

  • Abysmal. Definitely not the best week for releases Ive seen. VR games taking up space for real games. And a couple remakes of games I already played years ago. Im not expecting to be wowed every week. But the last few have been just awful. Ever since VR was released, hmm… Coincidence? Everyone is going to focus on that and forget about making actual games

    • Hahahaha you’re a funny guy.

    • I’m not sure you have a grasp on how the video game industry works. VR games aren’t taking the space for real games. They could not be there and the list would the same. The focus will be on the system with 40+million units, not the one with >2 million.

    • So let’s see, so far this month we have gotten Dishonored 2, Watchdogs 2, and the new Call of Duty if you’re into that sort of thing. PSVR follow up month and the new PS4 as well, yep those PlayStation guys, doing nothing like usual, twiddling their thumbs right? I mean amirite bro?!

      Oh and one other small little game, it really slips my mind, maybe you can help me…something about 15 Fantasys of Final, or Fantasy 15 Finale, something like that at the end of the month, just an “abysmal” project some small independent group of rookie programmers that call themselves “Circle Enocks” or something similar (again, such a minuscule company I can’t recall their company name either, forgive me)is making. I’m sure no one cares or anticipates that one though.

      November is such an “abysmal” month so far man, you obviously know your video game scene. Millenial whiners like you are hysterical.

    • Black Friday week, smart guy. Sept-Oct had plenty of big games, but no company is gonna release a big game 4 the week every f’n game ever goes on sale

  • Is there a chance we can get a ps4 pro supported tag for games that support it in future Drops

  • Hopefully they drop skate 3 next week.

  • Samurai Showdown VI?! I’m buying it but man where is the Garou we were promised? I need my Kushnood Butt fix!

    • Not sure if I’m going to buy this, already paid $20 for the anthology recently but I’m hoping they release samurai showdown V special later on.

  • Is there going to be black Friday’s sales next week in the ps store?

    • It will probably be the monthly Flash Sale, seeing as it’s the third weekend of the month. Black Friday Flash Sale.

    • Considering that Thanksgiving Day in the US falls on the fourth Thursday of the month, I’m gonna guess that next weekend is the fourth weekend, not the third. Though I wouldn’t be surprised if they did indeed roll the monthly flash sale into the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend.

  • Nice! I’m loving the drop on Fridays, and I’m so glad to see more darksiders! Hopefully this can do well enough to warrant a third entry in the series.

  • Can’t wait for Samurai Shodown VI

  • Every time there is a patch for PS4 pro, my 4k Vizio tv screen goes black. I then have to load it in safe mode and play with the settings until it is back to normal. Can you guys fix this for Vizio televisions?

    • It’s not just Vizio, it’s LG tvs as well. And until Sony/LG/Vizio fix whatever is causing the issues with HDMI High-Speed cables and 4K TVs, you’re going to have that issue every time you update your system. How to avoid the issue for now? Go into your PS4 Settings > System > Enable HDCP, and uncheck the box. You won’t be able to use video apps or watch Blu-Rays, but you’ll be able to play games, and you won’t have to mess with the settings every time they release an update. Then, like I’m having to do, just watch for an indication online that they finally fixed this issue before re-enabling HDCP.
      Either that, or go through the Safe Mode route each time they push a firmware update. Good luck.

    • You have to manually select 2160p – YUV420 in safe mode. I did that on my vizio d series and I haven’t had a problem since then.

  • Only thing that interests me is Amnesia which will likely be overpriced so I get another week of working on backlog.

  • So PSVR is showing itself to be the spiritual successor to the Wii in its embrace of shovelware. Guess someone had to fill that gap.

  • Wow, I look bitter. Gotta stop posting today. Sorry folks.

  • Meeeh nothing worthwhile. Thats ok i got enough games to play. And Final Fantasy XV can f off square and there lies can riot in hell.No day 1 patch my butt.

    and that Stranded game looks super rad
    VITA is awesome

  • I’ll keep saving my moneys for Fractured But Whole and The Last Guardian. :D

  • One of these days we’ll see Cosmic Star Heroine on this list. One of these days… :)

  • So I bought a Vita last week and I’m back in the Playstation ecosystem (I had one two years ago but sold it), and I’m unfamiliar with the frequency of flash sales,
    Does anyone know how often they’re held?, Does anyone know if there’s going to be a flash sale this month or a black friday sale?

    • umm!! the whole point of a flash sale is that they come up randomly. If they were up on a regular pattern everybody would just wait for those

    • I thought it was pretty strictly every three weekends there’s a Flash sale? Maybe not. Also, pretty sure I remember there being a Black Friday sale every year.

    • There’s a Flash Sale every third Friday of the month that lasts through that weekend. And Orange_Sooty, the point of a Flash sale is that the sale doesn’t last longer than a few days instead of the normal week long sale. As in “here and gone in a FLASH”

    • Thanks for replying everyone!, I guess I’ll keep my hopes up for both a flash sale and a black friday sale :)
      I already bought a few games on the 10th anniversary sale, but hey, it never hurts to see a few vita must-play or psone classics games on sale ;)

  • I’m excited for Amnesia. As a side note, any predictions for December’s plus lineup? It’s getting to be that time again!

  • The only decent game on that list is Darksiders and its a “remaster”, PS4 need to start bringing some good games for real instead of those generic indies while all the triple A titles getting delayed over & over again.

  • Looks like I gotta buy this. Now do the same with KOF Maximum Impact/KOF Maximum Impact 2 ( KOF 2006). and you’ll have yourself a deal. I wont have to use the Singapore PSN account on my PS3 anymore.

    Seriously the games already coded for use on PS3. Now get them to do it for PS4 and I can record myself playing this title again.

  • Damn that VirZoom bike is $400 lol. I think a vr workout program could be super fun (although sweating inside the helmet is an issue).

  • Is Samurai Shodown VI a PS2 Classics or a ACA NeoGeo? Thanks.

    • Nope, its apparently going it be a port of the PS2 version (Similar to how KOF 2000 and Metal Slug Anthology was).

      What I find weird, is that the only way to play SS6 in English was the SamSho Anthology (which had everything unlocked from the start).

      This port by itself however, seems to be similar to the stand alone JP PS2 version where you have to unlock everything, which will take some time, however. (Though it would have been nice if it was the Anthology version, but oh well.)

    • Probably a Geo-Neo port, if it was a ps2 Classic it would said It in the title….. Or it might as well have been the anthology since that was released on ps2.

    • @Neostraycat huh I didn’t know VI was a stand alone game for ps2 in JP.

  • I keep clicking on these every week hoping that I’ll see the Final Fantasy IX HD version that Steam and mobile got. Like a gysahl pickle, I’m always left wanting…

  • oo.O Slain on Ps Vita! Was waitin for that!

  • Excited for Slain on Vita, been long since I spotted a good Vita action game

    • Hey I have looked and there is only Slain Back from Hell for PS4 which is great, but you mentioned it is for Vita!
      Is it coming out for Vita too?

  • Another week goes by and still no Ape Escape 3.

    • Yeah, I would prefer actual backwards compatibility with PS2 games (along with PS1 games) on PS4 where you can just put the disc in and the game will install and become playable, but I know it’s never gonna happen. So I might as well just dig into the PS2 games on PS4 gig. However, until Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3 becomes available on PS4, I’m still keeping my PS2. Other games on the other hand, I can just re-acquire them on PS3, GameCube, PC, and/or Wii.

    • lol die hard fan right here

    • @Gameman15 yea I don’t like rebuying the same games I already have on my ps2/PS3 either but what makes it worth while to me atleast is that you can earn trophies. A feature I wanted for the ps2 classics on PS3.

  • Will Samurai Shodown VI support online play or is it just a ported title?

  • Slain: Back from Hell is only for Vita? A PS4 version would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    • Slain is on PS4 already (at least in the EU market so assumably the US market too) – Vita had been delayed up until this point.

      Speaking of which… Any news on cross buy ?

  • Please give us Shadow Man 2 and Time Splitters.

  • Looking forward to the Amnesia Collection!

  • Sony, while you guys are promoting remasters and re-releases, please consider a PS4 remaster collection of Infamous, Infamous 2, and Infamous Festival of Blood.
    Also, I am still waiting to see Plants vs Zombies 2: Its About Time come over to PlayStation.

  • Love PlayStations releases every week

  • i wish we could get a remaster of samurai showdown 2. i think that was one of the best out of the series

    • I used to have the arcade and man I rocked that every single day in the morning and after school. Will always be my #1 favorite.

  • Nothing for me this week, but I do have a hefty backlog to go through, so I’m not complaining.

  • War, war never changes, except when it has been warmastered

  • Been waiting for We Sing since it was announced. Going to be a genre-buster for singing games.

  • When do these games become available? I can’t find Darksiders on PSN at all while I see on other sites people already are downloading it / playing it. Was there an issue with the US release? or something??

  • Their is a game that was on PS1 that needs remaking or brought up to PS4 its Legend of Dragoons

  • It was mentioned that Amnesia would have a discount for PS+ members for a couple weeks but I’m not seeing it…

  • What a shame to see Darksiders 1 being recycled.

    But anyway…I’ll be getting that Samurai Shodown when I see it on sale…could buy at high price to support SNK but…sorry Sony,you ask too much of games that shouldn’t be more than $5 from the start.
