The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 3/17/2015

The Drop

The renowned first-person shooter series comes tearing back to PlayStation this week with Battlefield Hardline, which launches on PS4 and PS3.

Inspired by modern-day TV crime dramas, Hardline puts players in the role of Nick Mendoza, a Miami police detective that’s hell-bent on taking a former partner down. Hardline also features a robust multiplayer suite, with new competitive modes, giant interactive maps, 28 gadgets, 27 licensed vehicles, and more.

That’s just the start of this week’s lineup. Final Fantasy Type-0 HD launches this week on PS4, ushering in a dark, violent story of 14 characters pushing back against an invading empire. And of course let’s not forget our Spring Fever lineup continues this week; Jamestown+ is taking flight on PS4 with new characters, new maps, and that deliciously insane bullet hell flavor.

For a full list of games coming to PlayStation this week, read on. And enjoy the Drop!
