These are your new PlayStation Store releases this week

Shenmue III, Sid Meier's Civilization VI, Golem and more all debut

With this week’s new PlayStation Store’s releases, transform a primitive tribe into the world’s most powerful nation, continue a long-awaited journey of revenge, or seek out fortune and glory in a treacherous fantasy setting.

And even if none of those adventures – be it Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, Shenmue III or Golem – appeal, there are plenty more games to choose from.

Take a look at the highlights, as well as the full list of the week’s releases, below*.

Shenmue III | Available: Tuesday 19th November

Why it should be on your radar:

A journey 18 years in the making, Yu Suzuki’s sequel promises to retain much of the flavour that made its predecessors so groundbreaking on their debut. The continuation of Ryo Hazuki’s journey to avenge his father will give fans exactly what they’ve been clamouring for these past two decades.

Golem |Available: Monday 18th November

Why it should be on your radar:

Highwire Games’ ambitious fantasy adventure finally launches on PS VR. It sees you pilot a golem warrior as you explore a vast city, one that hides treasure and danger in equal measure.

The threat of losing all your collectables upon death heightens the tension of exploration and adds an additional edge to first-person melee combat, which favours strategic strikes and careful blocking over mindless button-mashing.

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI | Available: Friday 22nd November

Why it should be on your radar:

Firaxis Games, the studio behind the excellent XCOM games, trades alien invasions for world-building as it brings its turn-based strategy expertise to the acclaimed Civilization series. The PS4 release packs in all the updates and additional societies that have been added to the PC version post-launch.

Arcade Archives In The Hunt for me. Good game with quality pixel art. :)

darrenjones1973 18 November, 2019 @ 18:08

Yeah good game that. Nice surprise.

Narcos isn’t multiplayer unfortunately 😔 that would have been super cool against mates.

Um, Ryza came out almost 3 weeks ago… EU blog pls…


The free dlc deal end, so they re release the game again.

My God! No Fight´N Rage this week again?

shemnue 3 for me but haven’t updated dlcs on store so what happened.

Lost Ember looks interesting. 🤔I can’t normally play first person games, but I’m so desperate for some sniper stealth that I might have to risk Ghost Warrior Contracts.


In The Hunt for me yet another great week for the Arcade Archives just to let all you Archives fans know Hyper Sports has been confirmed as an up-coming title Long live the Arcade Archives but still no Vigilante

What about Bomb Jack? It was released on the Japanese and North American Playstation Store back in 2015 or someting, but still isn’t here in Europe.

darrenjones1973 18 November, 2019 @ 21:59

Thanks for the heads up. I actually slightly prefer Hyper Sports to Track and Field so can’t wait to play that again.


If you really must have Bombjack get it off the JPN PSN or on Switch. Word of warning – the arcade game’s music has been removed for copyright and replaced with the console version’s.

So Cuisine Royale is actually in the store now, but only the beta. Full release december 3rd as a free to play.

Why did the main picture change from a collage of four games to just Shenmue? Did one of the other three games fall through the PS EU crack in space and time?

Carnivius_Prime 19 November, 2019 @ 11:17

ah good it got fixed. :)


Taking bets on In The Hunt never seeing the light of day as with Yie Ar King Fu which was released last week.


No NO no lets hope not anyway as Yie Ar King Fu i am not bothered about that one so much but not in the hunt in fact i want In The Hunt over Vigilante


Me too. The ones I’ve been looking forward to the most are In The Hunt and Detana Twin Bee.

Great to see Hyper Sports due soon, as well.

I’ll get Golem if I can get used to the controls. A demo would help significantly!

Anyone know why we still have that crap double discount sale on? Its been on since the 1st 😣 i thought the ps store updated every Wednesday 😭

Carnivius_Prime 21 November, 2019 @ 09:34

Is 21st but not seeing Arcade Archives In The Hunt on the store. :O


What time does it normally update? I’m dying to get In The Hunt.

Carnivius_Prime 21 November, 2019 @ 12:56

They’re usually there first thing in morning. Often findable using the searchbox before they probably appear on the store main page. But it’s not. So yeah…


Should have been up load as of Midnight GMT 21st November 2019 being as passionate as i am About the Archives series i stayed up to the witching hour only to be bitterly disappoint to the fact that they have not uploaded the content in its place a load of Indie Rubbish going to do the same tonight if not i am heading to the Jap Store where it has been released.

Just to let all you Archives fans know Hyper Sports is up next but don,t trust these In The Hunts just go straight to the Jap Store otherwise you be waiting for ever

Check out this link for info on Hyper Sports but like i say go straight to the Jap if you have a Jap Account

It looked good long this week, but come Thursday, and three announced games failed to show. Titeuf, In the Hunt, and Trax. Maybe tomorrow, maybe never. Who knows.


I’ll just buy it on Switch later. Nice one Sony!

Carnivius_Prime 22 November, 2019 @ 07:03

Arcade Archives Yie Ar Kung Fu just appeared on the store? That’s not the one i was waiting for this week but ok. :P

Does anyone know where I can get any info on Trax? Can’t find it in EU or US store, and no results on google

Carnivius_Prime 25 November, 2019 @ 11:15

IN THE HUNT is on the store now! Almost a week later but it’s there so yay.
