Seven more days have passed, which means a whole bunch of new stuff and developments have been happening in the gaming world. By this time next week, PS Plus subscribers in Asia will have become the first to experience the new tiered system. This means that a lot of previously unknown information about the service has come to light this week.
We also learned a lot more about the inspired fighter from Warner Bros. Smash, MultiVersus, an update on when to expect next-gen Witcher 3, and finally some concrete information on when Fall Guys will be coming to new platforms. All that and more below as we cover the biggest news of the week in the gaming world.
Classic games revealed for PS Plus
If all goes as planned, the new PS Plus will roll out in Asia by May 23, so next Monday. Everything you don’t yet know about the service will find its way online then, but this week PlayStation revealed quite a bit of new information ahead of its launch. The biggest news was the reveal of a large portion of the games that will be available to Extra and Premium subscribers. PS4 and PS5 games for the first, and that plus a multitude of PS1 and PSP classics on Premium. The post detailing the games that will be available at launch also revealed that classic games will include save and rewind features, and some will have trophies. Some classics will also be available to purchase separately, even if you don’t have PS Plus.
MultiVersus previews are here
Attempt to replicate, and perhaps even improve upon, the Smash Bros. formula. is right now. Especially since Nintendo finished adding Smash Ultimate to the roster. Next up will be MultiVersus, and now we know a bit more about the Warner Bros. fighter. than before. For starters, we had a chance to preview the game and it’s actually pretty good. Really good, actually. A new trailer for the game also debuted this week, properly introducing the world to some of the easily recognizable faces. Arya Stark, Taz, and The Iron Giant all make the cut, but no, Breaking Bad’s Gus Fring doesn’t. This screenshot you saw has been edited.
Next-Gen Witcher 3 will be here before the end of the year
CD Projekt Red may have launched Cyberpunk 2077 much more recently, but people still aren’t above the masterpiece that was The Witcher 3. Probably because since its launch seven years ago, games have been adapted into a hugely popular Netflix show. If you love the show and are thinking of getting into gaming, this holiday season might be the perfect time to do it. CDPR confirmed this week that the previously announced Witcher 3 upgrade for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S will be here in time for the holidays. The perfect gift for anyone you intended to toss a coin.
Silent Hill in the UK
Last week ended with leaked footage of a new Silent Hill game set in the UK and finding its way online. Konami was quick to cleanse the web of their presence, and if that wasn’t enough to make you believe they might be real, the evidence pointing to exactly that has continued to pile in throughout this week. An actor hinted the footage was real, and now there are rumors that a remake, as well as a UK sequel, is in the works. Needless to say, despite nothing concrete yet, it’s probably safe for Silent Hill fans to start getting a little excited.
Fall Guys for free and for everyone
Over a year has passed since Mediatonic proudly declared that Fall Guys would make its way to Nintendo Switch and Xbox. This expansion was quickly delayed indefinitely, but now the biggest moment since Fall Guys launched and became the most popular PS Plus game of all time is almost upon us. Fall Guys is coming to Xbox and Switch next month, and best of all, it’ll be free. It will also be free for those of you planning to play on PlayStation and PC, of course. Chances are most of you who already have it didn’t pay for it anyway, because you were one of those record numbers that made it so popular on PS Plus.
Greedfall 2 announced
While we’ve got nothing more than leaks and whispers about a new Silent Hill, the news that a Greedfall sequel is coming is much more specific. Greedfall 2 was officially announced this week, as were quite a few details about the new RPG. Your role in the game will be reversed from the first, it will be set three years after the events of Greedfall and it will include a lot more tactical elements. The only bad news is the wait Greedfall fans now have in their hands. The sequel won’t be here until at least 2024, and while that seems like a long time – because it is – it makes sense. Greedfall 2 will be a big and ambitious game and it’s only just been announced, so expect a two-year wait.
