Check out the full release schedule for the week ahead

UPDATE: A version of this post incorrectly listed that Dimension Drive is releasing on 26th June. This game will launch later in Summer 2018.

This week, relive your childhood dreams with The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, Dontnod’s prequel to the upcoming Life is Strange 2, which is available to download for free on PlayStation Store now.

A separate standalone adventure set outside of Arcadia Bay, The Awesome Adventure of Captain Spirit invites you to step into the shoes of nine-year old Chris, an adventurous youngster with a big imagination, as he embarks on his most unusual expedition yet!

Elsewhere, Call of Duty WWII’s latest DLC has arrived, bringing three new multiplayer maps, a new Nazi Zombies chapter and more to the FPS blockbuster; Ubisoft’s Far Cry 3 makes its debut on PS4 in a remastered Classic Edition, and the latest adventure in the LEGO franchise brings Disney’s superhuman Parr family to PS4 in LEGO The Incredibles.

1. Call of Duty: WWII – The United Front: DLC Pack 3

Allies retaliate in United Front, Call of Duty: WWII’s third DLC Pack. Experience the dramatic drive toward Berlin across three new multiplayer maps: Stalingrad, Market Garden and Monte Cassino. Join new heroes in a unique Nazi Zombies experience and push across North Africa in a new objective-based War Mode mission, Operation Supercharge.

2. The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit

Become the superhero you’ve always wanted to be in The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, Dontnod’s free adventure set in the Life is Strange universe. Play as Chris, an ordinary nine-year old boy with a big imagination that takes him on all sorts of adventures.

  • Did you guys (Sony) block the localization of Omega Labyrinth in the west? I am very sad about that…

    • I agree

    • Really? If sexualises underage girls. I’m glad they refused it. You can import it but if you do you belong on a register. Well done Sony for not allowing the seedy side of Japanese culture here.

    • Are you really surprised by that?

      Even if they wanted to they couldn’t exactly release games with legally underage people (by European law) doing things and having things done to them..

    • That not true at all and you know it.

      There have been other echhi games with lolis in them and Sony, PEGI and ESRB allow on they platform.

      How old do you think of a girl is gun gal, senran series hyperdimension series rom and Rem etc etc. criminal girls 1 and two even though it was censored had very questionable things. If it simply fail QA then the game will be delayed then that fine, but it isn’t.

    • From what I understand it’s the ratings boards that refused to classify the game which means that it can’t lawfully be sold on PSN.

    • I understand the issue with playstation store, but they shouldn’t prevent a physical release in countries that have certified the game. It just doesn’t make sense to me when Sony allow Gal gun /gal gun 2 on the store/physical without any issue.

    • ESRB tweeted that it has nothing to do with them, they rated the game Mature (17+). The statement was that “Platform holders” denied it, which should be Sony. Which is amusing because the game is OUT in japan so if Sony wanted to be a platform that doesn’t support this kind of fan service game (which it does because monster monpiece and senran kagura exist, and censored criminal girls as well) then they forgot they already released this an another territory.

      Also if you look at artwork from Demon Gaze for example, that should be decent proof that the European rating board PEGI also probably isn’t involved because they rated that game 12. TWELVE. Look at some of the artwork.

      Case in point, these games have NO sex in it, sure it has lot of steamy and suggestive material but there is no straight up sex or genitalia or nipples. Unlike several AAA games that make Sony money but it’s ok because those make money. As well as it needs to be repeatedly pointed out to some, these characters are fictional. As in, they don’t exist. And these games are also humorous because of the themes they are set in. So much for progress and more diverse genres and subgenres in videogames.

      It’s complete nonsense and I am appalled.

    • I read it was rated though by some entities…

    • Looks like someone is trolling here…

    • Nice post Yaro, must’ve gone up after I typed mine. I was pretty sure I read that it got a rating from the ERSB and PEGI.

    • Sony US and Sony EU act seperately from Sony JP so just because they allow it doesn’t mean they all will. The same way horror games get censored in Japan. Anyway from what I understand is that they would have had to censor it like Criminal Girls to get it a release but they refused because they don’t want to censor games. This one is all on Sony though not the ratings boards. We will hopefully still see a Steam release later or maybe a play asia exclusive version in English. Both if we are lucky it’s not ideal but better then nothing.

  • Hm wondering how much those versions of Fighting Layer EX are gonna be.

    Gonna tell my friend about Ikaruga. Never saw the appeal of it myself even when I had it on the Dreamcast (found it very bland and dull compared to other shoot em ups) but my friend’s been wanting to play it so now he can on PS4.

    • Light version – $39.99 (12 Launch Characters + 5 Gougi Decks)

      Standard version – $59.99 (12 Launch Characters + Hokuto + 15 Gougi Decks)

    • Thanks. Not sure what the UK prices will be but based on those Dollars I’m guessing too much for my wallet for this month. :P

    • To convert prices is easy if you use the industry standard conversion method.

      Just swap the dollar symbol for your local currency symbol. Who cares what currencies are actually worth!

  • Store is showing captain spirit but it won’t let me select it. PSN really can be useless at times

  • Well at least there is one good title  Ikaruga. is out for release this week Neo Geo take a back seat this week i see King of the fighters Orchie Saga who on earth will want to buy that when when you have the neo geo (arcade version already released the MVS version.

    My wallett could do with a break after wasting £50 on Blaze Blue Tag Battle could someone tell me when the rest of the game is being released & what exactly is the games corner in it with those Virtual Arcade machine is it a future games mode they are adding anyway three cheers for Ikaruga hopeful radiant Sliver-gun will follow if Ikaruga sells welll

    • The rest of the dlc characters are being revealed at EVO2018 (3rd to 5th August), hopefully the mystery of game corner will be revealed at the same time. I’m not a fan of games being released a bit at a time either, its not like we could pay for it in installments. Buyer beware applies sadly.

    • Thank-you hopeful despite the fact that it is not liable to get an arcade release but never say never it will be an arcade mode episode mode is not bad in fact its quite fun but offline mode like Streetfighter 5 needs some serious work done to it other than that the World Cup is having a serious impact on my gaming sessions but didn,t England do well yesterday

    • Its possible that there was no arcade mode at launch because it didn’t get an arcade release originally and like SFV we’ll get it later. The World Cup is putting a big dent in my PS4 time, not my Switch time (Playing Ikaruga handheld, getting distracted when there’s a goal. Dammit!)… Glory to the Kane.

  • I think you have mixed up July with June for the Lego Incredibles release, either that or the actual Store is wrong as it’s not available for another 18 days!

    • Its out 13th july i can see someone at sony getting fired for a incorrect release date

    • They should be fired ever since Andrew house left playstation. They put someone new in charge and PlayStation seen go wrong with dates and putting same game on store sometimes every week and putting new game dates wrong. Do fined it bit odd and ya need Andrew house back .

  • IKARUGA . wonder what the price’s gonna be. it’s currently 5 Eur on ‘that summer sale’

  • Hey guys why you need some much time to release the new chapter from dead by daylight???

  • LEGO INCREDIBLES IS OUT 13TH JULY NOT 26TH JUNE i just looked at my pre order and uk release date it says out 13th july !

    • Logged in to say the same thing. It’s due to the movie release date being later than the US release date was. I guess they understandably don’t want people playing the second movie in Lego form before they’ve even seen it.

  • And still no Tempest 4000 Any news please

  • Far Cry 3 for me on disc be getting in post . Anyway that’s all I check list and are all new games this week .

  • Off-topic I’m reading something awful, if this is true that SCEE and SCEA with conjunction with VSC. if banning omega z for PS4 and vita.

    Then i I shall be boycotting your games and products.

    Please do U-turn. ?

  • Just a fair warning to anyone planning on purchasing Far Cry 3 Classic. I got it as part of a FC5 season pass last month, and I would suggest to you not to get it until there is a patch to sort out the terribly sluggish controls, that make the game almost unplayable and as a result unenjoyable.

  • So what games are releasing on Vita this week that aren’t listed?

  • Presumably Rainbow Skies is being released tomorrow on Vita as well, or is it coming later?

  • Any ETA for a fix for the download queue with PS3 and Vita contnet? It’s been 2 months.

  • Looking forward to playing Rainbow Skies on my PS Vita :)

  • Where full game of captain spirit. Put on store know.

  • Heads up anybody looking to get Atomine, almost every trophy is bugged and not popping. I’ve emailed the devs about it but heard nothing back yet. How this passed cert is baffling. It’s a great game but I’d avoid it for the time being.

  • “The Unknown City” doesn’t show up in the store, for whatever reason.
