Disgaea games are among the most hardcore and insane RPG’s available and the fifth instalment is following the same trend. The tactical roll-player revolves around the theme of revenge – “The evil demon emperor Void Dark devastates numerous Netherworlds after coming to power, with the help of an army of over one million soldiers known as The Lost. Following this, the Overlords of the Netherworlds under Void Dark’s rule attempt to rise up and take revenge”. Releasing this year, Disgaea 5 is a PS4 exclusive.
Primal Carnage: Genesis
The rumours of the cancellation of Primal Carnage: Genesis seem to have been false and, after a long period of radio silence, developers Circle 5 resurface to update us on its progress – and the project is “on hold”. Primal Carnage: Genesis is a class-based, online multiplayer shooter unlike any other on the PS4. Imagine Evolve meets Jurassic Park? Yes? That. A console exclusive for the PS4, it is releasing when ever the team get around to finishing it in 2015.
The first project from Brazilian team Swordtales, Toren is a 3D platformer with a liberal sprinkling of puzzles. I managed to get my hands on Toren during Gamescom 2014 (you can ready my full preview here) and was incredibly impressed. Toren is launching on the PS4 and PC in early 2015.
Housemarque are the creators of some of the greatest arcade games on PlayStation platforms – Super Stardust, Dead Nation and the incredible Resogun – and their next title Alienation looks like it will maintain this high standard. This multiplayer twin-stick shooter pits you and your team against an alien horde – but there is a catch. You can work with your team to get a great combined score OR you can turn on your comrades and steal the glory for yourself. Releasing as a PS4 exclusive, Alienation will be arriving in 2015.
Jonathon Blow, the mind behind the excellent Braid, introduced the world to The Witness alongside the PS4 at the initial press conference leading many to believe that the game is a life long PS4 exclusive. Since that time, Jonathon has stated that the game will make its way to other consoles in the future but its initial release will be on the PS4.
Rocketbirds is one of those hidden gems on the PS3 and PSVita but here’s hoping that more people get to experience the off-beat, hardboiled humour and gameplay of RocketBirds 2 when it lands on the PS4 as a console exclusive later this year.
BigFest is an incredibly promising prospect where you get to develop your own music festival using real world, unsigned bands. This free-to-play game is coming to the PS3, PSVita and PS4 as a Sony exclusive in 2015.
Tearaway is a fantastic game – probably the best game available for the PSVita – and now that same paper-craft adventure is coming to the PS4. Making use of the Dualshock 4’s many different control methods, the game promises an experience like no other. A PS4 exclusive, Tearaway Unfolded is releasing during 2015.
Aaru’s Awakening was originally a school project but after it started to win game awards, developers Luminox decided to release in for the PC. If you do a quick Google search for the game, I think you will agree that it looks bloody gorgeous and it features an interesting teleportation mechanic where the main character shoots out his soul.
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster
Blitzball, One of the best Final Fantasy storylines and that damn lightning. Final Fantasy X & X2 were given the HD spit shine for the PS3 and PSVita and now Square are going a step further by upgrading the graphics once again for the PS4.
