The PS4 Just Picked Up Two New Titles
We’re slowly seeing the beginnings of the PS4 hype train leaving Sony’s station. It’s not nearly in full swing yet, but having Sony announce another two titles that will be on the console certain does help it pick up steam. Well, they would if people actually knew or cared about the two titles announced, namely Blacklight: Retribution and brand new title called Primal Carnage: Genesis.
Both titles are self-published, which explains why they seem low-key, but here’s what I don’t get. Blacklight: Retribution released as a free-to-play shooter on PC last year, gathering some rather lukewarm and negative responses from critics and players alike. It doesn’t have a massive following on PC, so why should people get excited for its arrival on next-gen consoles? It’s not like Dust 514 hasn’t already brought a free-to-play shooter to the console market, so I don’t really see the logic in this one.

Primal Carnage: Genesis, however, holds a silver more promise. A new IP that promises to be a “story-driven” experience set in a world where dinosaurs have come back to life. So, like Jurassic Park I’m guessing. The game will take on an episodic form, much like Telltale’s titles such as The Walking Dead and hey, Jurassic Park, and will run on Unreal Engine 4. Director Ashton Andersen had this to say in a statement.
“It was a difficult decision for us, given the relative newness of episodic storytelling. Ultimately, the episodic method ended up being the clear victor due to the versatile nature of creating a story episode by episode.”
In addition to that, it was announced that indie hit Spelunky is headed to the PS3 and Playstation Vita, while Limbo and The Walking Dead managed to snag a Vita launch as well. No release dates were announced, but be sure to hear about them soon. That is, if you haven’t already sold your Vita in a fit of utter disappointment.
