The readers have spoken! Congratulations to Bend Studio, and a tip of the hat to NetherRealm for snagging the runner-up spot with Mortal Kombat 11.
Update: And that’s it for April’s poll! Congratulations to Bend Studio, whose Days Gone raked in enough votes to win last month’s Players’ Choice title. NetherRealm’s time-hopping Mortal Kombat 11 put up a fight, landing comfortably in the runner-up spot.
Now that we’re well into May 2019, what do you think will take the crown in our next poll?
Welcome back! Whether you’ve been exploring the scenic Farewell Wilderness in Days Gone or fighting time itself in Mortal Kombat 11, you’ve probably still got your hands full with some of April’s new releases. PS VR owners got some new treats too, with Outerloop’s Falcon Age and Zoink’s Ghost Giant.
But that’s not everything! Peruse the list below and cast your vote for the best new game of April 2019. Polls close Sunday night at 11:59pm Pacific!
What is the voting criteria? That’s up to you! If you were only able to recommend one new release to a friend that month, which would it be? In keeping with our long tradition in the Game of the Year Awards, remastered or re-released games won’t qualify. Ambitious, larger-scale rebuilds and remakes like Shadow of the Colossus and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will.
How are nominees decided? The PlayStation.Blog and PlayStation Store editorial teams will gather a list of that month’s most noteworthy releases and use it to seed the poll. Write-in votes will be accepted.
