Playstation 4

We'll start with the Playstation 4 content. There is a single new retail release this week: Bethesda's online role-playing saga in Tamriel. Joining it are a couple of free-to-play titles, another Arcade Archives title, an explorative MMO and two new bundles. If those don't take your fancy, there is some DLC without trophies from the usual suspects. At least you can look forward to the latest adventure in the Forgotten Realms, newly announced this week, which can be pre-ordered ready for its eventual release.
