5 big new PlayStation Store releases you need to check out this week

Be it the golfing green, the streets of Japan or the gorgeous landscapes of Oregon, PlayStation Store’s new releases will take you on a tour of the world this week. Below are five of this week’s biggest releases, and as usual, the full release schedule follows thereafter.

1. Life is Strange: Before the Storm

Return to Arcadia Bay through the eyes of Chloe, a 16 year-old punk-rock rebel who forms an unlikely friendship with Rachel Amber, the most popular girl at Blackwell Academy. This prequel to Dontnod’s fan favourite adventure will take you back to the peculiar characters and gorgeous Oregon scenery of Life is Strange in a story set before the events of the first game. As with the original, Before the Storm releases episodically, with the first part, Awake, out this Thursday, 31st August.

  • Why you should play it: Your choices have consequences. But unlike the original, you don’t have time-rewinding powers to undo your mistakes, leading to a tenser trip to Oregon this time round.

  • Available: 31st August

2. Everybody’s Golf

Celebrate the 20th anniversary of one of PlayStation’s best-loved sports franchises as Everybody’s Golf debuts on PS4. This new iteration of the famously fun and accessible golfing experience features the same three-click shot mechanic that fans have come to know and love. But alongside the realistic golf physics, online modes and character customisation is the option to go fishing, buggy racing or even treasure hunting! How you enjoy the green is up to you.

3. Absolver

Absolver is a stylish online combat game offering a wealth of tactical fighting styles to master. Pick your weapon, decide on your strategy, and plan your attacks thanks to the intricate Combat Deck. Design your own unique attack flow and spar with others to learn new combat skills, moves, and acquire weapons and armour. Will you be worthy of joining the elite corps of Absolvers?

4. Yakuza Kiwami

11 years after the release of the very first Yakuza on PlayStation 2, you can now experience the incomparable action and drama of the franchise’s debut with this PS4 remake that sees the game rebuilt from scratch. The remake is packed with new features and content with deeper stories, new side quests, updated combat, a re-recording of the original Japanese dialogue and much, much more.

5. Sparc

Developed by CCP, the studio behind Eve Online and Eve: Valkyrie, Sparc is a very new kind of competitive game. In Sparc, players compete in fast-paced, full-body contact sport entirely in VR. Customise your avatar with a host of stylish options and you’re ready to hone your skills in single-player challenges and trials or compete online in one-on-one multiplayer matches against friends or via matchmaking.
