Weekend Announcements Pt 2: Sunless Sea, World of Horror and More

By Rebecca Smith,
Now that part 1 has introduced the first of today's 20 new titles, part 2 brings along the remaining ten games. Unlike the first list, these are all confirmed for PlayStation 4, with some also coming to PlayStation VR. Check out the list below.

Naked Sun

Door Z's PlayStation VR shooter takes place in the 23rd century, where AI has wrestled control of Earth away from humans by eliminating them. Despite the constant threat of robot attacks and high radiation levels, a handful of human survivors are fighting back in an area of city ruins known as the Deadlands. Players assume the role of "the first successful human-machine hybrid" known as Blackbird, and he must locate a cargo train destined for Mexico City. Once onboard, he needs to disable the mainframe that controls the city's defense system, finally giving the humans a fighting chance of success. The title is due to come to PlayStation 4 later this month.

Badland Games is bringing Estudio Abrego's RPG to PlayStation 4 at the end of this year. The game tells a tale of a wartorn continent, Feros, where the north and south are constantly in conflict. Four years ago, Salaber used a powerful weapon in the conflict and now two agents of Shinn, Galina Angstroud and Berani Valenti, are trying to find and destroy it. The title uses Motion Battle Chess, a system that blends real time combat with tactical grids, as well as a "classic board game node-based exploration system".


Override: Mech City Brawl

Developer The Balance Inc. has teamed up with publisher Modus Games to bring their "3D mech-based party brawler" to PlayStation 4. Players take control of their own mech and take on other enormous robots in fully destructible arenas inspired by real life cities and countries, such as San Francisco, Egypt, Mexico, and Japan. Each of the 12 mechs has their own speciality moves and playstyles, and they're all customisable with accessories and skins that can be unlocked as players progress. Alongside the campaign comes a variety of multiplayer modes for up to four players, and a 2-4 player co-op mode where each person takes control of one part of the same mech. The title is due to arrive on December 4th.


Pizza Titan Ultra

The creators of STARWHAL are back with yet another crazy title. This third-person "action platformer" is inspired by 90s Saturday morning cartoons and the colour scheme that went with it. Players control a giant mech as it delivers pizza. Of course, the customers don't just want their pizza delivered — they want the mech to complete missions for them like destroying noisy helicopters, or helping "man-sized dogs record hip hop albums". Ultimately, players will take on enemies and smash their way through the city as they attempt to find out how a former pizzeria mascot, Cheezborg, turned into a deranged robot overlord. The title will be appearing on PlayStation 4 next week on August 21st.


Pode

Bluder and Glo are not a conventional video game duo. One is a rock, the other a fallen star. As they make their way through Mount Fjellheim, they must solve puzzles to bring life to an ancient world lying dormant after the demise of human civilisation. Henchman & Goon's "puzzle exploration game" is designed to be played in single-player or two-player co-op, and will be making its way to PlayStation 4 "soon".


Remnant: From the Ashes

Darksiders 3 developer Gunfire Games has joined forces with publisher Perfect World Entertainment for another title they have in development. The "survival-action shooter" paints a bleak future. Earth has been taken over by aliens and the only way humanity will survive is to head to alternate dimensions. Together with up to three other players (or on your own if you wish), you'll need to defeat the enemies and bosses that occupy the "dynamically-generated" levels while trying to find what it is for which the aliens are searching. The title is due to arrive on PlayStation 4 next year.


STAY

Quinn is a therapist who wakes up in a locked room. The only notable object in the room is a computer that's connected to a chat room. You, the player, are the only other person in this chat room and his only hope. Your choices decide whether Quinn will escape, as will how long it takes to respond to his requests. The game is played in real-time, including time spent away from the game. If you leave Quinn alone for too long, there will likely be consequences. With seven endings to discover, "dozens" of potential deaths, and hidden secrets, Appnormals Team's upcoming graphic adventure is designed to be played several times. You'll get a chance to do this when publisher PQube brings it to PlayStation 4 later this summer.


Sunless Sea: Zubmariner Edition

After success on Steam and iPad, developer Failbetter is bringing their "literary RPG" to consoles for the first time later this year, exclusively on PlayStation 4. Players pilot a steamship sailing through the Victorian Gothic setting of Fallen London, full of threats and mysteries to discover. While death is guaranteed, the aim is for your legacy to live on in any way possible. As Narrative Director Chris Gardiner explains: "If the pirates, sentient icebergs and swarms of bats don't get you, madness and cannibalism certainly will. Smuggle sunlight, barter your soul, become a spy. Seek immortality or provoke a revolution of tigers. Perhaps you'll even achieve your life's ambition, if you don't lose your mind and eat your crew first". The PS4 version will also include the "Zubmariner" DLC, which doubles the size of the map.


The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince

Misunderstandings often cause conflict. It's not often they bring people together, but that's what's happened in the case of Nippon Ichi's upcoming title. A wolf is disguised as a princess, and she guides the titular blind prince through the forest in search of a witch who may be able to restore his sight. Along the way, they'll have to combine the wolf's strength and the prince's wit to defeat enemies and avoid traps while they search for "a fairytale ending" and collect memories along the way. The title will be coming west courtesy of NIS America and will arrive on PlayStation 4 next year.


WORLD OF HORROR

Panstasz and Ysbryd Games have joined forces to bring this "cosmic horror retro RPG" to PlayStation 4 next year. Inspired by the works of Junji Ito and H.P. Lovecraft, the game's world is descending into madness and foul creatures are terrorising the dwindling human population. At the same time, the Old Gods are reawakening and are trying to return to the world. It's up to you to stop the apocalypse with five different characters who each have their own story to tell and perspective on what's happening. Defeat enemies through turn-based combat, and use spells to solve puzzles, but the latter will come at the cost of your sanity. The event cards in your deck will affect the outcome of your journey, so choose wisely.


Now that we've introduced all of these titles, will you be buying any of them?
