Sony lists hundreds of PlayStation games releasing in 2015

first_imgEven as the PlayStation 4 left its competitors in the dust for most on 2014, many still felt its lineup of exclusive games wasn’t as strong as it could have been. Sure, it got a lot of indie love with games like Octodad and Transistor, but those showed up on PC as well. As far as big, PS4-only experiences last year, Infamous: Second Son was your best bet, and that came out in February. Sorry Driveclub. However, with sales in their favor, Sony wants to further its lead in 2015, and has announced the games it hopes will do just that.On the exclusive AAA front, gothic third-person shooter The Order: 1886 is out in just a week from now while Dark Soul’s spiritual successor Bloodborne will once again test players’ masochism next month. From there it’s a lot of updates of last-gen games including Borderlands and Devil May Cry along with multi-platform titles such as Mortal Kombat X, Batman: Arkham Knight, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, and the already released Dying Light.Once we reach the holidays, though, the prospects get a little more exciting. Although they don’t have solid confirmed release dates yet, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and a new Star Wars: Battlefront are all still scheduled for 2015.One of Sony’s smartest recent moves has been to continue courting the independent developers that prop up the industry between blockbuster releases. 2015 should be no different as games like Hyper Light Drifter, Shovel Knight, Nuclear Throne, and Apotheon land on PS4. And who can forget that PS4 is the only console players will get the ludicrously hyped, procedurally generated, sci-fi exploration adventure No Man’s Sky sometime this year.The PlayStation 4 isn’t Sony’s only video game hardware though, even if it definitely is the focus. 2015 won’t leave PS3 and PS Vita owners completely in the cold. Cross-generation games like MLB 15: The Show, Battlefield Hardline, and Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will come out on both home consoles while tons of smaller games like Broken Age, Broforce, Axion Verge, and Shantae: Half-Genie can be swapped between PS Vita and PS4.You can check out the full list on Yahoo!, but since it’s so early in the year plenty of this information can and will change. Expect more concrete info at E3 this summer. After all, what good is a game console, even one as slick as the PS4, without any games to get excited about?last_img read more
