Sony’s new smartphone gaming initiative PlayLink for the PlayStation 4 has gotten off to a great start with party title That’s You, and the platform holder’s hoping to add to the fledgling line’s catalogue later this year with Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games’ crime thriller Hidden Agenda and much more.
The platform holder’s confirmed on the PlayStation Blog that the award-winning detective drama will drop on 24th October, and will encourage you to play in groups as you steer the direction of the story with friends. It’ll be joined on the same date by two other titles: trivia title Knowledge is Power and karaoke revival SingStar Celebration.
Finally, minigame compilation Frantics will launch on 13th March. All of these titles can be played with a smartphone or tablet, as opposed to the DualShock 4. It’s all part of the platform holder’s attempts to open the PS4 up to a new audience, as it targets 100 million units for its current console.
Played That's You a few weeks back with mates while waiting for the Mayweather/McGregor farce, I mean fight, to start. Despite the annoying 'presenter' and his seemingly bottomless pit of terrible jokes I was actually pretty impressed. That you can create your own questions through the app is a huge plus as well. So definitely up for more of these types of titles.
I'm really looking forward to this. My family loves the party games but Not so much "That's You" because most questions are a little obvious.
This looks pretty cool. I wish there was more detective/cop games out there.
Will it be playable solo with a controller?
I am very excited about this one and The Inpatient. I just finished Until Dawn and loved it. I like that Supermassive is trying new game styles with PlayLink and PSVR (Rush of Blood was great too). I do hope we get a proper full-length story sequel to Until Dawn with new characters in the future.
While the family liked That's You!, requiring each Playlink game to have its own app will be cumbersome, if not prohibitive depending on your memory size.
@SnazzyMonkey87 Nope, this game requires smartphones and playing with others.
Which is sad, I was really interested until I saw you can't play offline by yourself.
