6 big new PlayStation Store releases you need to check out this week

Gran Turismo Sport, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, No Heroes Allowed and more…

This week, we celebrate the return of Polyphony Digital’s legendary racing franchise, with the release of Gran Turismo Sport. The new iteration of the iconic racing sim releases on PlayStation Store this Wednesday, so buckle up your seatbelts and get ready to race!

Elsewhere, South Park’s Stick of Truth sequel grants you hilarious superpowers, Elex puts you at the epicentre of an apocalyptic world where sci-fi and fantasy collide, Megaton Rainfall VR lets you become an interdimensional superbeing and Raw Data allows you to fight friends and foes with epic lazersabres.

Check out this week’s releases below:

1. Gran Turismo Sport

Take to the track with the grand return of the original racing simulator on PS4. Take to the track in the Sport, Campaign, or Arcade modes or try out Scapes, the innovative photo mode that allows you to create eye-catching moments with your favourite cars. And why not don your PS VR headset and experience Gran Turismo Sport’s tracks and cars in a whole new way?

2. South Park: The Fractured But Whole

Do we really need to introduce this one? You’re the New Kid in the small town of South Park, and socialising might prove tricky because you have a questionable superpower: time-bending farts. Join Cartman, Stan, Kyle, and Kenny and save South Park. Bonus: if you haven’t played The Stick of Truth, get a digital version of it with its sequel!

3. Elex

From the makers of Risen comes Elex, a science-fiction/fantasy RPG that takes place in the post-apocalyptic open world of Malagan. Fight to survive while you explore with the help of swords, guns, magic and a jet-pack!

  • Why you should play it: Chose your faction amongst the Berserkers, the Clerics, or the Outlaws and forge your own story with Elex’s interconnected quest system.
  • Releases: 17th October

4. Megaton Rainfall VR

Become a supersonic indestructible interdimensional superbeing on PS4 and PS VR in this first person superhero sim. Soar across the planet and defeat otherworldly enemies as they try to invade Earth. Be careful about collateral damage though, these are cities full of people!

5. Raw Data VR

Be part of the resistance in Raw Data! In 2271, Eden Corp owns the world and dominates the international economy, but its products seem too good to be true. What are its true motives? Fight your way to the truth in this sci-fi epic.

    • Why you should play it: Dive in the immersive world of Raw Data and fight your enemies with laser sabres!

    Any news on Blue Reflection for Australia?


    I got an official email response from Koei Tecmo just over a week ago, saying they have no plans to bring Blue Reflection to Aus (despite it getting an age rating here).

    Order a physical copy from the UK like I did. The DLC code cannot be redeemed on an AU account though.

    Alot of great VR games out this week


    ..why isn’t Raw Data or NHA even in the store as a ‘coming soon’ – same with Invisible Hours (which is meant to be released this week and looks AMAZING) – at least give them some exposure on the store before they’re released… :/

    Lets just be happy their coming out this week.

    The invisible hour was delayed by one week and was meant to be out this week.

    What happened and when will it be released?


    It’s out on the 17th October.


    True! What is going on with this VR game. Is it delayed again?

    Not much for me. I may be tempted by Rogue Trooper if it’s been done well and priced sensibly.


    Rogue trooper can be purchased for under £20 for a physical copy if you shop around. I believe it is £19.99 in the store. It was a good game in its original incarnation and worth playing if you didn’t experience it first time around.

    I’m torn between Professional Farmer and Real Farm…decisions, decisions…


    Professional Farmer, Real Farm, Farm Simulator, what is the deal with all these Farm simulators?

    It seems lots of people in the PC and PS4 communities aspire to be farmers :)

    My thoughts exactly. I guess the two more recent franchises are just trying to jump on the bandwagon seeing as Farming Simulator made well above it’s budget for development. Farming Simulator is just one in a big list of ‘mundane sims’ such as train, bus, milk delivery, dustbin lorry etc.

    Not only that! Grand Theft Tractor, Farming Gear Solid, Uncultivated: A Farmer’s End, Paddyfield 1, Assassin’s Crop and Call of Duty: Modern Animal Welfare are all scheduled out before the year’s end.

    Hells yeah, South Park: Fractured But Whole. Already have it pre-loaded on Steam

    £35 for invisible hours, when it’s 30 dollars in US store.. No wonder they didn’t put it up before release… Utterly disgusting and greedy.. They’ve lost my business…


    Cheers for the info . Off to the US store I go.

    £35 is more than I am willing to pay. £25 would have been the top end price for this game in my opinion. Shame, I was looking forward to it. Will wait for a price drop or sale.

    Megaton rainfall is just a megaton of crap fyi

    I’ll wait for a proper GT game rather than pick this one up… lack of single player modes kills it for me.

    Why is the Invisible Hours £35 but only $30. Surely if it’s $30 it should be about £25-£26 not more!?

    I was also expecting it to be around £25 and was all set to grab it, but £35 is just too steep for a 5-6 hour game\experience even if it does look great.

    What a poor offering. Being a PlayStation user has never felt so depressing.

    Brawlhalla’s worth a download since it’s free (to play) and it’s like Smash Bros but less sickenly cute/corporate and the variety of characters (and even of their variant costumes) is fun. Yeah, not bad at all.
