The Drop: New PlayStation Games for May 12, 2020

Take a trip through gaming's yesteryear with Pixel Ripped 1995, Ion Fury, and Huntdown.

Take a trip through the annals of gaming history with three retro-inspired highlights dropping on PS4 and PS VR next week. Huntdown is a neon-drenched action shooter set in a crime-ridden city that needs cleaning up, PS VR’s Pixel Ripped 1995 follows up the excellent Pixel Ripped 1989, bringing the original’s clever concept into the 16-bit era, and Ion Fury is an expertly-crafted love letter to the industry’s earliest first-person shooters.

For a full list of new games coming to PlayStation next week, read on. And enjoy The Drop!

Ion FuryPS4 — Digital (Out May 14)

Ion Fury laughs at the idea of mandatory checkpoints and straight paths through shooting galleries. But, just because this is a true old-school first-person shooter doesn’t mean we’ve ignored all the good new stuff the last two decades have brought. 3DRealms, Voidpoint and 1C Entertainment have taken the best of both worlds and cooked it all into a bloody stew.

  • Pixel Ripped 1995 is the big one I’m looking forward to this upcoming week. Also have my eye on Huntdown, Ion Fury, and Pong Quest.

  • SilentStorm2020

    How much will Huntdown be?

  • Getting Ion Fury for sure.
    I’ll look into Huntdown more, I might get it too.

  • Ya’ll forgot Super Mega Baseball 3 btw. It comes out next week.

    • Whew. Thought I was losing my mind for a second. Guess it comes out Wednesday and not Tuesday though…

  • NICE!!!!! Hunt down, pixel ripped 1995 and Ion Fury!!!!!

  • Please add Video links to The Drop

    • I second this idea.

    • What would you want a video link to? It takes a few seconds to go to YouTube and search the title and you can pick the video you want. The reviews, previews and gameplay videos that you can choose from are probably better than whatever an official trailer might have.

    • @darkrequiem7

      Games are an auditory/visual experience and the current Drop with no pictures and no video links is much less usable and informative.

      Each week I’d like to quickly check out each game to see what they actually look and potentially play like. A simple way to find fun smaller games, hidden indi gems. In it’s current form this list provides almost no information which is useful to consumers, no way of actually knowing what the games are without having to look each one up individually.

      A list with video links would be a service to the users and developers, as I am much more inclined to buy a game if a trailer catches my interest. Otherwise most, like me, will just scroll past some cover art and move on. IE lost sales. In fact for some devs The Drop might be the only place we see their game.

      And no, providing links to the store page 2 weeks later isn’t the same, when the article has long since been buried.

      Plain and simple, day one video links would make The Drop better for users and developers trying to sell their games.

      I just don’t understand, if it was your only job to help promote games and the brand and make something that’s better for the fans, why wouldn’t you do it?

    • @darkrequiem7 Don’t bother I have said the same thing. Kids will spend hours on the web watching youtube and tv but can’t do two second search. Imagine if they had to wait for a gaming magazine…the horror.

    • @ Jisatsu_Kiddo

      What gives you the impression I’m a ‘kid’, because I would like The Drop to be a better and more functional feature?

      I very much remember the days of the magazine, when the news and screens shots were a month old when you got them. My favorite by the way was Die Hard Gamefan (before Gamestop got their hands on em) because they used nice paper and ink.

      But that was 20-25 years ago, and even by those standards The Drop would have been bad, one of the lame articles Advertised on the cover as showing all the newest games only to list em without even a single solitary in game pic.

      I’m not a kid and insulting me doesn’t make me wrong. The Drop would be better with video links, and we shouldn’t be expected to go back to magazine days for ‘patience sake’. It’s 2020. Maybe you want your news carved in stone. I do not.

    • And point proven.

    • @Jisatsu_Kiddo

      Hard to argue such fine logic. You must be right a lot.

    • still proving it.

    • @ Jisatsu Kiddo

      So nice to have made a friend on the internets :-)

  • If anyone reading this hasn’t played Ion Fury on PC yet, it is absolutely incredible. It is basically a 2019 Duke Nukem 3D. It even uses the original build engine from the 90’s. I’ve played through it like 10 times already. Super great game.

  • Why doesn’t Playstation give out games people actually play instead of this bs

  • Can you guys bring back “Blasto” for free. I know it was a PS1 game back in the day. It was one of my favorite game to play.

  • As a fan of multiplayer action games, Huntdown and Tacticool Champs for me


    • It was delayed on PS4. It now comes out at the end of May.

    • While it is delayed, the news earlier this week states it currently does not have a release date. You may have seen that since it was posted the day after you asked the question. Aspyr said “We are so excited to share Star Wars Episode l: Racer with you soon! Unfortunately, due to the ongoing work from home requirements across the industry, the game will be further delayed on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. We’ll be back with an update as soon as possible.”

  • I can run most of these on my cellphone.. give us game that are actually for a PS4..

  • Well, I can’t find Huntdown listed in the PS Store. What gives, Sony?

  • How much is Ion Fury going to be? Ever since I sold my gaming PC a few months ago I’ve been wanting to play this again.

  • Huntdown is brilliant I’m loving it

  • It’s the 15th, and no Pong Quest!!! Where is it???

  • I’ve paid for ps plus since it was available and for $60 and get two free games that I would never play is sad on Sony’s add personnel or bad manage ment in game overviews.
