Your first look at a fresh batch of titles specially designed for group play
This time last year we introduced PlayLink – a new range of PlayStation 4 multiplayer games with a twist. Utilising your smartphone or tablet with the free companion app as the controller, PlayLink titles are designed specifically to bring friends and family together through social play, no matter what type of gamer they are.
Following the launch of That’s You!, Hidden Agenda, Knowledge is Power and Frantics, we’re now ready to tell you about the next batch of titles coming down the pipe. In addition to the already-announced interactive thriller Erica, we’ve got seven new titles in the works, offering a range of great multiplayer experiences.

Just Deal With It
Just Deal With It! delivers a whole new twist on five classic card games. Play Poker, Blackjack, Crazy Eights, Rummy and Hearts locally or on-line. Team up with friends and family, launch attacks, sabotage the competition, and go all in for the win, in this joyous card game party!
It doesn’t matter whether you’re new to gaming or a seasoned veteran, there’s something for everyone here, from flinging your chimps through basketball hoops, to escaping your rivals in a maniac game of tag.
WordHunters is a globe-trotting word game. Face off against friends and family in a series of competitive minigames set in different cities around the world. With beautiful art, moreish gameplay and a deep metagame that’ll keep you hooked for weeks, this is just the thing for you wordsmiths out there.
UNO is coming to PlayLink! Play against up to three friends locally and enjoy the fun of the classic card game! Race against others to empty your hand before everyone else in Classic Play or customise your experience in House Rules to ensure you and your friends never play the same game twice!
Melbits World is a cute collaborative puzzle-platformer in which rhythm and coordination are the key to success. Collect and guide the digital creatures through a series of fiendish levels by teaming up with friends to control platforms, obstacles and traps; all that while dodging viruses, gathering seeds and spreading good vibes across the internet.
Ticket To Ride
Simple, elegant gameplay and some intense strategy come together in Ticket to Ride. You’ll need to collect cards showing various types of trains and then use them to claim railway routes across the map. The longer the routes, the more points you earn. Additional points come to those who fulfil Destination Tickets – goal cards that connect distant cities – and to the player who builds the longest continuous route.
Knowledge is Power: Decades
Knowledge is Power: Decades is the third PlayLink title from Wish Studios; the same studio behind That’s You! and the original Knowledge is Power. In this high-energy quiz gameshow set across the ’80s, ’90s, ’00s, and ’10s, put your pop culture trivia smarts to the test with tactical Power Plays and touchscreen challenges that recreate a TV game show for players of all ages. Can you battle your way to the apex of the Pyramid of Knowledge and claim victory in the grand finale?
