Happy Halloween, folks! To all those elbow-deep in a pumpkin right now, dribbling fake-blood across their faces or rehearsing the Monster Mash dance routine, we salute you!
If you’re looking to get your spook on with PlayStation this week, then why not check out PlayStation Store’s massive range of Halloween Discounts, get involved with FIFA 19’s FIFA Ultimate Scream or Fortnite’s Fortnitemares event.
Now, to the matter at hand! Let’s take a closer look at the games and why you shouldn’t miss out on this November’s excellent line-up.
More than a decade on from its debut, the team behind the cult-hit Yakuza series returned to the roots of their generation-spanning saga with a complete remake of the PlayStation 2 original.
Yakuza Kiwami re-envisions the classic open-world crime saga for PlayStation 4, recreating Kamurocho’s atmospheric nightlife and brooding criminal under-belly with current-gen visuals, brand-new art work and updated combat mechanics.
If you’ve never had the chance to play a Yakuza title, then there’s no better place to start. A unique mixture of fearsome crime drama, slice-of-life social sim and arcade-style action beat ’em up, Yakuza Kiwami is an experience quite unlike any other.
Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition
What’s better than beating the stuffing out of the bad guys? Doing it in style! This is pretty much the mantra that underpins this over-the-top, sci-fi shooter and it’s never looked or played better than in the expanded PS4 version.
You are Grayson Hunt, an exiled former bounty hunter on the quest for revenge. Stranded on the crumbling planet of Stygia with nothing but your trusty laser leash, you’ll need to tear you way through its hordes of mutated inhabitants and track down the commander who betrayed you.
The real twist is the additional points you’ll earn for taking down your opponents with the colourful creativity of an ’80s action movie hero. Lasso enemies with your futuristic whip, combo kill in quick succession or just kick them into a giant industrial turbine… whatever works for you, buddy.
Absolutely! Riding shotgun alongside the aforementioned you’ll also find two games each for PS3 and PS Vita (two of which you can also download for your PS4 as well). Put them together and the line-up looks like this:
- Yakuza Kiwami (PS4)
- Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition (PS4)
- Jackbox Party Pack 2 (PS3)
- Arkedo Series (PS3)
- Burly Men At Sea (PS Vita + PS4)
- Roundabout (PS Vita + PS4)
You can download all these from PlayStation Store starting 6th November. In the meantime, why not check out October’s line-up to make sure there was nothing you missed:
