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

The Drop

Prepare to drop into high-stakes combat and protect democracy at all costs — Helldivers is coming to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita this week in a flurry of friendly-fire chaos!

Helldivers enlists you in an elite squad of soldiers that travel the star system, obliterating any enemy of Super Earth that dares rear its insectoid head. With full four-player cooperative, and the looming presence of friendly fire at every turn, Helldivers is packed with challenge and three different alien races itching to destroy you. Procedurally-generated levels keep even the most versatile soldiers coming back for more, and a non-linear mission structure opens up even more carnage-laden options. Bonus: Helldivers supports cross play and cross chat across all three platforms.

If squashing space bugs and cyborgs isn’t your cup of tea, fear not: Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines is also headed to PS Vita this week. In it, you’ll guide a clan across many generations in an effort to purge your family of an ancient curse. With watercolor visuals and spectacular battles, this RPG brings a new twist to Japanese mythology.

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