I have penned my PS4 release date for November 3rd, (Click here to find out why!) and there will be a huge host of launch date titles ready for your purchase! With so many great games available from launch, it may be hard to decide which ones your pocket money will stretch to.
Here they are:
Assasins Creed IV: Black Flag, from Ubisoft
Battlefield 4, from DICE
Call Of Duty: Ghosts by Infinity Ward.
DC Universe Online, Sony Entertainment
DriveClub, from Evolution Studios
FIFA 14, EA Sports
Just Dance 2014, also from Ubisoft
Killzone: Shadow Fall, from Guerilla Games
Knack, from Sony Japan
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, by TT Games
Madden NFL 25, another from EA Sports
NBA 2K14, from Visual Concepts
NBA Live 14, also from EA Sports
Skylanders: Swap Force, from Vicarious Visions
Warframe, by Digital Extremes
And Finally, Watchdogs, probably the most talked about PS4 launch title, of course by Ubisoft!
My personal ‘Wishlist’ on launch day consists of Call of Duty, Battlefield, Watchdogs and Knack. Call of Duty is a must buy for me, having played every single COD game since it began to rival Medal Of Honour on the PC- and win! Battlefield 4 is extremely intriguing, 64 Player online battles with the maps more destructible than ever, new guns, vehicles and god know’s what is to come. Knack is a unique looking adventure game, I like these sort of fun easy to play games and Knack does look pretty cool! Could Knack be the new Crash Bandicoot or Spyro? Playing shooters all day gives me a headache, too much concentration involved and sometimes it’s nice to be able to chill and play a fun relaxing game. I’m more curious about Watchdogs than anything, as previously mention, I hate stealth games, but we shall see…
I’m not a big fan of sports games, I’m no good at them and with a lot of flack from high profile sports stars such as Michael Owen, blaming computer games for the cause of fat kids, I have to say that games such as FIFA should be practiced outside in the park, not in a dark room on a 42″ screen. Of course their is a market for these games, and I have been known to play FIFA, I just let my friends buy it and bring it round 😉
With a great selection of games to play as soon as you buy your PS4, there are also even more confirmed for the ‘launch window’. The launch window will run up until the end of Q1, so March, but here they are:
Blacklight Retribution by Zombie Studios
Daylight, also by Zombie Studios
inFamous Second Son, the well known franchise from Sucker Punch
Need For Speed: Rivals from Ghost and Criterion
Oddworld: New ‘n’ tasty by Just Add Water
The Crew from Ivory Towers and Reflections
The Order: 1886 from Ready at Dawn Studios (Sony)
Planetside 2 by Sony
The Witness by Thekla Inc
Transistor from Supergiant games
Wolfenstein: The New Order by Machine Games
and finally War Thunder from Gaijin
I expect there to be many more, these are only the confirmed titles, but of course we expect to see titles such as Grand Theft Auto V, a number of Final Fantasy games, such as Lightning Returns, Realm Reborn and 15. I would have thought Diablo III would be ready by then too, and possibly even Elder Scrolls: Online, but there’s no guarantee and could easily trickle into April and Q2. A number of the titles above are also Free To Play as mentioned in a previous post (HERE). The titles I would be interested in, of these, would have to be Wolfenstein, Order and Infamous, but not before any of my ‘unconfirmed’ mentions. The F2P games are free, so it would be rude not to play them.
2014 is going to be a reclusive, wallet stretching year. I want them all and of course would love the time to be able to play them all, but it will have to come down to priority. I have to say, with such a heavy talk about The Order:1886 at E3, I would have expected it to be available at launch, but I guess a game like that has to be perfect.
