PS4 PlayStation 4 2015 Exclusives 1

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has been delayed, and there's a soggy bit in the centre of the office carpet where every Push Square staffer has had a little sob. As we reported yesterday, though, this is not the end of the world: Naughty Dog will surely use the additional time effectively, and it's ultimately going to result in a better game. Of course, with Nathan Drake's anticipated escapade still some way away, you may be wondering what else Sony has in store for the PlayStation 4. Well, we've compiled a list. A few things worthy of note: we're only including SCE published titles here, so the likes of Dragon Quest Heroes don't count. We also don't have a crystal ball, so this list is accurate as of its publication date – expect more titles to be announced (and some to be delayed) over the course of the year.

Seemingly the spiritual successor to Dead Nation, Alienation will do away with the deliberate action of Housemarque's isometric survival shooter and replace it with something a little more raucous. Packing plenty of customisation options, as well as co-operative and competitive multiplayer, we trust the team behind Resogun to make alien culling feel fresh.

PS4 PlayStation 4 2015 Exclusives 3


The big one – and it's not far away. Sony famously allowed Atlus to publish Demon's Souls overseas, after the platform holder doubted its commercial appeal. The series has since grown into a bit of a money-spinning monster, and director Hidetaka Miyazaki's now back for a second collaboration with Japan Studio. The odds on this macabre action RPG disappointing are low.

Drawn to Death

God of War creator David Jaffe's attempt at something wildly different, Drawn to Death is a free-to-play arena shooter with a sharp sense of style and a lot of attitude. Based upon the illustrations of a disgruntled teenager, the visuals are inspired by juvenile scrawls. However, you'll also get an insight into said youngster's life, due to map changing events that will occur during matches.

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

You could convincingly argue that all of the innovation in the gaming industry is taking place in the indie space, and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture certainly proves that point. Funded by Sony, but in production at teensy UK developer The Chinese Room, this intriguing adventure aims to depict life in a small Shropshire village after the apocalypse. Amazing.

Fat Princess Adventures

Fat Princess is a strange character, as she's become one of PlayStation's most prolific mascots – but has never really starred in a game good enough to deserve the status. Fat Princess Adventures will shun its predecessor's competitive gameplay, adopting a more straightforward co-operative RPG structure instead. Don't worry, though – there'll still be plenty of cake.

Hot Shots Golf

Curious by its conspicuous absence since being announced at the Tokyo Game Show over six months ago, we don't actually know a lot about Hot Shots Golf's inaugural PS4 entry – but we can take a pretty good stab. Expect crazy courses, kooky characters, and physics defying spin shots. Sony's also hinted at some kind of "open world" format, which sounds ambitious for this ordinarily modest series.

Kill Strain

Another free-to-play effort that's being produced by Sony San Diego, this is a 5v2v5 asymmetrical affair, which will take place on a foreign planet. With a deadly virus threatening to spread, you'll assume either the role of a mercenary tasked with protecting mankind or a mutated abomination out for revenge against your pursuers.

MLB 15 The Show

A top rated title year in and year out, MLB The Show doesn't always get the respect that it deserves. Sony San Diego knocks it out of the park (pun intended) with each and every instalment, though, and MLB 15 The Show is looking no different. Featuring improved visuals, licensed equipment, and a laundry list of gameplay tweaks, this will likely play the best game of ball yet.

Ratchet & Clank

Another exclusive that we know very little about, Ratchet & Clank will be a re-imagining of the series' first entry – built specifically for the PS4. Veteran developer Insomniac Games is promising jaw dropping visuals and ties into the forthcoming film, and as this represents the first collaboration between its Burbank and North Carolina offices, you should expect something special.

A title that evokes comparisons to ICO due to its lone boy on a beautiful island premise, RIME is a collaboration between Sony and Spanish developer Tequila Works. You'll need to explore the archipelago, solving puzzles in order to escape from the idyllic – but not always inviting – environment. Did we mention that it looks stunning?

PS4 PlayStation 4 2015 Exclusives 12

Shadow of the Beast

There have been many rumours regarding Shadow of the Beast since its announcement a couple of years ago, but Heavy Spectrum is still beavering away on this remake – despite what you may have read. Inspired by Psygnosis' Amiga games of old, this is sure to be one that will get Dads around the globe excited. The originals were known for their outstanding visuals and artwork by Roger Dean.

PS4 PlayStation 4 2015 Exclusives 13

Tearaway Unfolded

Not quite a sequel but not necessarily a port either, Tearaway Unfolded is a spruced up version of Media Molecule's critically acclaimed – but commercially unpopular – PlayStation Vita platformer. This will re-imagine many of the mechanics from the original, putting the DualShock 4 to good use, and creating all-new puzzles for you to butt your papery head against.

PS4 PlayStation 4 2015 Exclusives 14

The Tomorrow Children

And now it's time for something a little different: The Tomorrow Children is another outlandish entry in Sony's exclusives catalogue. Developed by Q-Games – the team best known for the PixelJunk titles – this online adventure will see you working alongside others in a post-apocalyptic Soviet stronghold, completing odd jobs in order to aid your settlement's defences against a robotic threat.

PS4 PlayStation 4 2015 Exclusives 15

Until Dawn

A game that was announced for the PlayStation Move eons ago, but has since been reworked for the PS4, Until Dawn is Guildford-based developer Supermassive Games' most ambitious project to date. Taking control of a batch of Hollywood z-listers, this teen horror-inspired release will see you attempting to outrun hostile clowns – all while trying to score with Hayden Panettiere.

That's the full roster of Sony published titles confirmed for 2015 so far, but there are many more exclusives in the pipeline from third-party publishers – and, presumably, plenty of projects that we don't even know about.
