New PlayStation Releases This Week: 13th – 19th October

By Sam Quirke,
It's the start of a new week so it's time for another new release round-up. This week sees the return of SoulCalibur, the chance for DC's Super-Villains to get bricked and lift off for Ubisoft's new toys-to-life project.

Razed

Release date: October 15th
RAZED is a game focused on speed, with the player charged with making it to the finish line in the quickest time possible, dancing and darting across dynamic levels littered with obstacles designed to take you down. Power boosting skills unlocked along the way can send you soaring - sometimes literally - with every second saved edging you closer to a triumphant run. In short, RAZED’s rather manic mantra is go fast, or die trying.
  • Non-stop escalation: Sprint through 60 dynamic levels spread across six unique worlds, each with a distinct visual style, unlockable abilities and pulse-pounding boss battles.
  • Chart your own course: Veer off the beaten path and carve your own way through levels to achieve seemingly impossible times and unlock the S ranks.
  • Online leaderboards and ghost data: Challenge the world via online leaderboards, and race against friends' ghosts in a game of asynchronous one-upmanship.
  • Fuss-free speedrunning: Nobody wants to wait around while striving for perfection. Falling short of your target time? Simply jab the restart button to return to the start of the level without any loading times.
  • Secret challenge levels: Employ all your different skills and abilities to find RAZED's toughest maps and tackle them head-on.
