EU Playstation Store Update: May 27th & 29th, 2015

By Rebecca Smith,
Before I begin, I apologise for the heavily delayed roundup this week. Due to a family bereavement, Wednesday's roundup was written late -- so late that we decided to delay it another day and add the extra content from Friday. Rest assured, next week will see a Wednesday roundup as normal, followed by a Friday roundup if necessary.

Now, on to the content roundup itself. The Playstation 4 highlights are Ultra Street Fighter IV, Magicka 2 and The Escapists, although all three platforms get BADLAND too. Vita players get a number of new titles this week; the higlights are the promised Octodad and the latest in the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise. If you're looking for extra content rather than new titles, there is trophy-bearing DLC from five PS4 titles, four PS3 titles and one Vita title.

The Escapists
Size: 119 MB
Price: £14.99/€17.99/AU$26.95
The Escapists is an award winning prison break simulation that provides players the opportunity of experiencing a light-hearted insight into everyday prison life. Whilst the aim of the game is simply to escape, the detail is in the execution. (Don’t say the word execution too loud in a prison). You may not be in an open prison, but you are in an open world where in between attending rollcalls, mealtimes and doing your chores you should grab every chance to plan your escape. Do you do favours for other inmates earning money and boosting their opinion of you along the way? Or workout and become stronger? Read to increase your skills or spend your time crafting items into homemade weapons and tools. What about working diligently in your prison job, to gain promotions to new jobs with better benefits? Keep a low profile or go out all guns blazing, as long as you escape in the end, that’s all that matters


Magicka 2
Size: 2.1 GB
Price: £11.99/€14.99/AU$22.95
The world’s most irreverent co-op action adventure returns! In the next chapter of Magicka, players ascend from the ruins of Aldrheim to experience a Midgård almost wiped free of Wizards after the Wizard Wars, with the few that do remain having either gone mad or extremely hostile toward all others.

To rid the world of evil, again, up to four Wizards, and their guide Vlad, will traverse Midgård armed with the next iteration of the famous Magicka dynamic spellcasting system, as players reprise their roles as the most overpowered, unpredictably funny Wizards ever known to fantasy!


Magicka 2 Special Edition
Size: 2.1 GB
Price: £15.99/€19.99/AU$29.95
Magicka 2: Special Edition comes equipped with the Cultist and Warlord set of robes, weapons and staffs as well as the Vlad PS4™ theme.
Octodad Dadliest Catch European PS4/Vita Bundle
Size: 2.5 GB
Price: £11.49/€13.99/AU$20.95 (Cross-Buy PS4/Vita)
Octodad: Dadliest Catch is a game about destruction, deception, and fatherhood. The player controls Octodad, a dapper octopus masquerading as a human, as he goes about his life. Octodad's existence is a constant struggle, as he must master mundane tasks with his unwieldy boneless tentacles while simultaneously keeping his cephalopodan nature a secret from his human family.

In this sequel to the splash hit Octodad, our cephaloprotagonist has gotten himself in a bind between his wife’s mounting mistrust, and a disastrous trip to the local aquarium! Are you dad enough to control the titular octopus father as he strives to hide his nautical nature from his family while keeping his tangled tentacles intact?
Roundabout
Size: 3.9 GB
Price: £11.99/€14.99/AU$22.95
Drive a constantly spinning limousine around town! Roundabout is a '70s B-Movie game where you pick up passengers, find secret collectibles, take on dangerous missions, and fall in love in a far out open world puzzle adventure - all while driving a revolving limo!

In Roundabout, you need to pick up passengers and drive them to their destinations. The catch: your limousine is constantly spinning in circles! To move around in Roundabout, you need to time your limousine's movement with the constant rotation in order to curve around obstacles, buildings, and more.

Set in 1977, Roundabout tells the rise to fame story of Georgio Manos, arguably the world's most famous revolving chauffeur. While driving players around the town of Roundabout, players will learn about the dizzying highs, terrifying lows, and secret loves of a revolving limousine driver. You'll experience the seventies in the only authentic way possible: with full motion video set in the interior of a limousine.
