Sony has announced that its PlayStation 3-exclusive social-networking hub PlayStation Home is about to get three new games – and they’re all free!
The games, which will launch from the spring months and into summer, will be accessible from the PlayStation Home hub. So, without further ado, let’s get down to the games themselves, shall we?!
Cutthroats: Battle for Black Powder Cove (Release Date: March 28): Offering the biggest multiplayer experience in PS Home thus far, Cutthroats: Battle for Black Powder Cove allows up to 24 gamers to battle aboard pirate ships as both ship captains and gunners, attempting to take down their opponents’ ships. Utilizing a freemium game model, Cutthroats: Battle for Black Powder Cove is completely free-to-play, though users wishing to expand their ship’s offenses can purchase coins to use for upgrades.
No Man’s Land (Release Date: Spring 2012): Arguably PS Home’s most ambitious title yet, No Man’s Land offers gamers the most advanced shooter experience the platform has ever seen. The game’s unique cover-based mechanics were designed to take full advantage of the platform’s technology. Players utilize a grid interface to sprint from cover to cover, popping up to take out opponents at every turn. The game offers a traditional “Team Deathmatch” mode, as well as a cooperative mode where salvage must be delivered back to the team’s depots, while fighting to stay alive in the process.
Mercia (Release Date: Summer 2012): Developed by Lockwood Publishing, PS Home’s first multiplayer role-playing title transports players into a fantasyl world of treacherous dungeons, magic spells, and a plethora of weapons and enemies. Mercia invites players to traverse a number of enemy-filled dungeons, and for the first time in PS Home’s history, the game continually streams new content, leading to zero load times while playing. Mercia also utilizes a number of RPG mainstays such as crafting, upgrading, and resource management, giving gamers the deepest RPG experience available on the platform.
Well, there you have it. Are any of you hanging around PlayStation Home? If not, maybe these games will entice you to give the service a go.
