From a classic arcade favorite to several brand spankin’ new next-gen releases, the PlayStation has a little something for everyone this week.
A reimagined rendition of a cult ‘80s classic makes its return this week in Q*Bert Rebooted , which also includes the old-school pixelated version for all you purists out there. However, if that’s a bit before your time, you can sink your teeth into something a little more current with The Order: 1886 . Although its story mode is rumored to be disappointingly short, many expect its alternate reality London and monster hunting mechanics to entertain none the less.
For that and more, check out all that’s new on PlayStation this week via their official blog (or by simply reading below):
