Acclaimed shoot ‘em up TxK and PlayStation Allstars Battle Royale also incoming

Hi everyone. To help boost your gaming collection we have a feast of goodies lined up for next month on PlayStation Plus. Read on for full details of what’s coming your way on 3rd September.

New on PlayStation 4

First up this month on PS4, we welcome the highly addictive arcade shoot ’em up sequel Velocity 2X.

Infiltrate space stations, moon bases and alien planets to disrupt the crushing tyranny imposed by the evil Vokh Empire. Engage the Quarp Drive teleport to outsmart the enemy in race-tuned space combat, then dock your ship, jump out and run around on foot to infiltrate enemy bases. Once you’ve disabled internal defences, jump back into the Quarp Jet and continue your mission!

Next up, is the critically acclaimed Sportsfriends – a tightly-knit compendium of local multiplayer games for living rooms, parties and even your backyard.

Whether you’re into retro-style fighting games or fancy some pole vault duelling there is definitely something to keep everyone entertained in this incredible social experience. Best of all, you can pick this up on both PS3 and PS4, so grab your friends and challenge them to some hilarious sporting action!

New on PlayStation 3

First up on PS3 this month comes explosive brawler PlayStation Allstars Battle Royale. This supercharged showdown is a celebration of the stars and games that made PlayStation a household name. Not only can you play as your favourite hero, villain or mascot – you also get to duke it out in some famous PlayStation settings.

Take on up to three of your friends offline and via PlayStation Network across a variety of competitive and co-operative modes as you fight on constantly evolving battle arenas. As an added bonus you can also pick up the PS Vita version to keep battling on the move.

Next up burn villages, kidnap the princess and incinerate thieves in your quest to gather the most gold whilst obtaining over 100 badges in four game modes across 35 levels. Hoard is an addictive blend of arcade action and strategy that allows you to play with or against friends in four player co-op mode and competitive multiplayer.

New on PS Vita

First up on PS Vita this month is Llamasoft’s highly addictive psychedelic tube shooter TxK. The spiritual successor to retro classic Tempest, TxK brings you 100 levels of score-chasing gameplay married to an outstanding soundtrack that will have your head nodding as you blast your way onto the leaderboards.

In our final offering this month take Joe Danger on a ride from zero to hero in a game that lives up to its PS3 big brother with no compromises. Eye-popping super-smooth 60FPS graphics use only the very brightest colours on the PS Vita’s lovely screen, and there’s a revamped control scheme so it plays just as nicely, too – including touch controls for the editor modes!
