These Are The Games We Know Are Coming To The PlayStation 4 (So Far)

PS4

It finally happened. Sony has revealed the PS4, and whether or not you’re happy about it, it’s what everyone is talking about. We still don’t know what the console itself looks like — personally, I’m hoping for something small, matte, and black. No more fingerprint magnets, please. We’ve only heard of a small number of the games we can expect to see on the console, but if the list so far is any indication, it’s looking way more exciting than the Wii U’s offering so far. After the break I’ve compiled a list of games and some details and trailers to help you decide if the PlayStation 4 has what you’re looking for.

Knack

The most family friendly game to be announced for the PS4 was also the first: Knack. It stars an adorable robot that can transform into bigger and exponentially more badass robot forms by using high-powered magnets to attract nearby scraps of metal to form limbs, armor, and weapons. Actually, I have no idea how he (it?) does it. Something about an ancient relic that probably granted him/it special and undoubtedly very mysterious powers that will probably take an epic adventure to fully understand.

Diablo III

Blizzard has teased their interest in bringing the previously PC exclusive Diablo series to consoles for some time. Now, those plans are coming to fruition with Diablo III, which will come to both the PS3 and the PS4. A lot of people are complaining about this because… well, because people will find a reason to complain about anything really, but Blizzard has said the game feels natural on consoles, so the move isn’t all that surprising.

Infamous: Second Son

The next installment in the electrified anti-hero series by developer Sucker Punch will be coming exclusively to the PS4. This should surprise no one as the first two were PS3 exclusives. Feast your eyes on its debut trailer below:

Bungie’s Project Destiny

As we’ve covered, Halo developer Bungie’s next game is going to be an ambitious one. It’s also a multi-platform game, but the PS4 will receive exclusive content.

Killzone: Shadow Fall

Like Sony’s other big FPS brand Resistance, the Killzone series has had a difficult time finding the same success Microsoft has had with Halo, but that isn’t stopping them from bringing us another gorgeous installment that will almost definitely wow us all, at least in the visuals department.

Watch Dogs

Arguably the most impressive showing at E3 last year was Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs, a futuristic, open-world game that many pegged as a next-gen release as soon as it was announced. This has been confirmed to be a launch title for the PS4.

Untitled Final Fantasy Game

Square Enix has sort of announced a new Final Fantasy, or more specifically, that one will be coming to the PS4 next year. That’s really all we know about it so far. That and it will probably look great.

Drive Club

Like racing games? If you answered yes, then Evolution Studios has a game you may be interested in. “It’s all about team-based racing. It’s existed at the concept as a studio for 10 years. At it’s heart, it’s always been a simple concept about driving the best cars in the world in the best locations in the world. said Matt Southern, game director at Evolution Studios. “We’re making the game we’ve always wanted to make.”

The Witness

The next game by Braid developer Jonathan Blow will be a timed exclusive for the PS4. The Witness is a 3D puzzle adventure game, but other than that, it’s still a mystery.

Deep Down

Capcom unveiled a new IP with a working title of Deep Down — let’s hope they change that real quick — that uses a brand new engine designed for next-gen consoles. The game asks us to “Conquer Your Fear or Die a Coward,” and the last man who said that to my face was suffocated with a grilled chicken wrap, because he said it to me at a McDonalds, so Capcom better deliver or I have a drive-thru to visit. Check out the announcement video below, and feel free to skip past the boring bits, the good stuff happens at 4:20 (BOOM!).

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

According to CD Projekt Red head Adam Badowski, The Witcher 3 will see a simultaneous release across all high-end platforms in 2014, so it isn’t exclusive to Sony’s console.

Obviously, that’s only a very small taste of what we’ll see during the year following the PS4′s launch. Sony also released a list of developers and publishers that we can expect to see something from, including Mojang (Minecraft), Techland (Dead Island), Zombie Studios (Daylight), and Grasshopper Manufacture (Shadows of the Damned, Lollipop Chainsaw), just to name a few.

    I didn’t see Mojang was included in the list. That makes me even more excited, even through my excitement level is through the roof for the PS4.

  • weresmurf

    Appealing hardware : Check
    Excellent lineup of games: Check
    Good online service: Check
    Doesn’t require itself to be online all the time: Check
    I’m sold.

    Shit initial price of 600 bucks though apparently? Still too expensive. You’d think they would have learnt from the PS3 and the Vitas release prices. Not getting it day 1, but will be further down the track.

    Unfortunately it’s still launching too expensive but that’s ok, I can wait til it drops a lot.

    • Se_7_eN

      Launch prices have not been set yet… But expect 2 different release models, both obviously including hard drives, a controller and the eye.

      Initial prices will (SPECULATING) aim between $450 for the “low tier model, and $550 for the higher end model.

      • Adam Dodd

        Agreed. I would’ve gone with a $400 basic SKU and a $500 “premium” SKU (again, speculation) with a beefier paid subscription, similar to PlayStation Plus, that would help Sony recoup some of the development costs of the console. Hopefully, Sony won’t make the same $600 mistake twice.

  • Nothing333

    The developer line up is tasty. Please don’t fuck this like the Vita Sony.

  • Seal_Clubber

    I can’t wait … I just hope a new Alan Wake is released soon on it …

    “They better deliver or I’ll have another drive-thru to visit.” Literally busted out laughing when I read this (consequently, while in a constitutional law class while the instructor is discussing civil liberties) lol
