The first two titles will be exclusively available to PlayStation 4 users, and Oddworld: Soulstorm will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive.

A PlayStation 4 exclusive, Days Gone (Review) puts players in the shoes (and on the heavily modified bike) of outlaw-turned-drifter Deacon St. John who embarks on a visceral quest to find his wife Sarah under the hood. shape of a crowd of zombies. – Similar creatures (known as Freakers) wreak havoc in a post-apocalyptic world. Although the story received a lot of criticism, Days Gone wowed critics and gamers with its tense gameplay and gorgeous graphics. The game’s climax comes whenever Deacon takes on the Hordes, which include a swarm of Freakers – numbered between 50 and 500. Tackling the Hordes isn’t an easy task either. You have to constantly craft special weapons and ammo, go through obstacles, find the best way to use your limited resources – all at the same time as hundreds of Freakers scramble menacingly at you, just like the zombies in the Brad Pitt’s world of stars. War Z. Not for the faint hearted, that.
