WEEKLY SPECIAL: Infamous: Second Son, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed: Black Flag + More!


Welcome to our Weekly Special! Every week we feature a selection of titles for less so you can play without all the pay! Hope you are ready for a next-gen adventure!


INFAMOUS: SECOND SON

PlayStation®4 [Action Adventure]

Infamous: Second Son is the third installment of the Infamous Series, a sequel to Infamous and Infamous 2 and exclusive to the PlayStation 4. The series will feature a new setting, a new protagonist, and antagonist in the form of a seemingly totalitarian government controlled by the police. The game is set seven years after the world of Cole MacGrath, who is replaced by Delsin Rowe. 

A game built on next-generation technology and starring an all-new hero! Infamous: Second Son is set in Seattle, Washington which has been locked down by the Department of Unified Protection (DUP), a police and monitoring group devoted in keeping order and capturing Conduits (people with superhuman powers). Similar to the previous Infamous games, the gameplay will be sharing an open world element. The main character Delsin Rowe will have the ability to absorb power of the other Conduits, with new powers based on smoke and neon lights.

Destruction has also been greatly improved from the past games. More objects can be destroyed, and if they are, they will stay destroyed for the rest of the game, unlike in previous Infamous titles. Decision-making (karma) mechanics will also appear in this game, similar to the previous two Infamous games. The choices the player makes along the way change the future of everyone.

WATCH DOGS

Xbox ONE™ [Action Adventure]

Watch Dogs can easily be labeled as a GTA for the technological gangsters. Instead of stealing cars, you are stealing something much more valuable: information, and a lot of it. Find specific targets to eliminate, or scan the crowd for a victim to latch your bugs onto. Retrieve bank data, hack phones, their demographic information – all to either catch them yourself or save them if their life is important to your interests.

There is more to the game that just being a hack-sim, you also have to do the dirty work yourself! Combat has a large focus on stealth mechanics and parkour so you can get around fast and evade or close in on enemies in a Third Person Shooter-style. Follow the digital connections as you track people’s every move – but not just people, the whole city of Chicago. As the main setting for the game, you will experience beautifully created graphics that do justice to the real city.

PlayStation®4 [Action Adventure]

As a Pirate it is your right to rule both land and seas! In the Caribbean, Black Flag allows you to set sail in 1715, the Golden Age of Piracy, and plunder to your heart's content as the pirate captain Edward Kenway. 

Much like the previous installments in the franchise, the mixture of action and history grabs the player, drops a sword and pistol into their hand, and crowns you the Assassin in a strange new world. Sail the seven seas, and engage in massive naval battles for your life and gold. With 50 different locations to explore, each new one will fully immerse the player in a world both inspired and afraid by the piracy of the time. 

The title being based largely at sea means that your ship is just as important as you are, and Ubisoft have opened up the option to customize and upgrade your ship to be your very own war machine. As you explore you will come across hidden treasures, very rare animals to hunt, and even underwater wrecks.


Assassin's Creed IV: Black FlagPlayStation 4US US$ 24.9924h

From the critically acclaimed director, Hideo Kojima, MGS: The Legacy Collection offers the most complete Metal Gear experience ever! Featuring eight complete games, Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, MGS 1, MGS2: HD Edition, MGS3: HD Edition, MGS4: Trophy Edition, MGS: Peace Walker HD Edition, and MGS: VR Missions. The Legacy Collection offers Metal Gear and stealth action fans a chance to experience all the heroic game play, compelling design, and immersive storytelling of the MGS franchise in one complete package.

The "Metal Gear" series is the seminal work of Hideo Kojima, Japan's master game creator, and the progenitor of the stealth action game genre. The series has become a global phenomenon, with over 33 million copies sold worldwide. The player controls a secret agent from an elite special forces unit who is sent on solo sneaking missions through enemy installations, vast jungles, and sometimes even the thick of battle. Alone and surrounded by the enemy, even a special forces agent will find it tough to come out alive. But that is the secret behind the series' popularity-the cerebral challenge of figuring out how to avoid combat, and the thrill of sneaking through enemy territory undetected.

The MGS series is also known for its storyline, which blends seamlessly with the gameplay. The scenarios are based on extensive research and incorporate the drama of actual developments in society. These elements have made MGS what it is today: a mature work of entertainment that transcends national borders and the confines of video games, and one of the leading products of the Japanese content business.

PAC-MAN AND THE GHOSTLY ADVENTURES

PlayStation®3 [Platformer]

Enter a 3D world with Pac-man! The Pac, an upbeat gung-ho teenager and his enthusiasm can occasionally get the best of him. When he gets going which is often, he goes rolling around school and around town at a pretty good clip, and he’s been known to crash, bump, slam and bounce into things on a regular basis! 

The world is definitely different to that of the Pac-man of old, but our little yellow friend still has the same insatiable appetite for ghosts! Pac-man must defend Pac-world and protect the Power Berries from falling into the sinister hands of Betrayus and his evil army of baddies!

Power Berries transform Pac-man when eaten as a form of power-up - forms like Fire, Ice, a Chameleon, metal, and granite! The multiplayer is a fun throwback to the original Pac-man where players are ghosts competing to catch Pac on a 3D map!

PlayStation®3 [Strategy]

Kagero or Deception is a strategy-RPG with a uniquely passive combat system, the primary goal being to exact your revenge on the unsuspecting by setting deadly traps! The developer, Tecmo, hasn't released a new Kagero title since Trapt - a decade ago! So you can imagine the surprise all the fans felt when the logo for Kagero: Dark Side Princess was revealed at Sony's press conference! 

Even more exciting now is the confirmed release of an English version with the new title: Deception IV: Blood Ties! This cult favorite is sure to please those with a diabolical inclination towards complex schemes with huge payoffs, as many creative and iconic traps - from the Iron Maiden to Banana Peels - can be linked together for insane combinations. The title is heavily inspired by Tecmo's 1996 PlayStation game Devil's Deception, so expect to see some distinct similarities!

Tecmo will also be including a 'share to YouTube' function so you can easily show off your evil genius!

KILLZONE: SHADOW FALL

PlayStation®4 [FPS]

Set 30 years after the events in Killzone 3, it is your duty to maintain peace in a land on the brink of an all out war between Vektans and the Helghast! The single player gameplayhas taken a much stealth-oriented approach, with large areas and multiple ways to proceed through them.

Killzone: Shadow Fall multiplayer ships with 10 maps, but users can (and are encouraged) to create their own custom map presets called "Warzones" and share or promote them on the Killzone Community.

Abilities, classes, and weapons are unlocked from the start - which makes multiplayer much more fun. The class system has been simplified to just three: Assault, Scout and Support (inheriting some of the medics abilities). PvP is the main multiplayer feature but the expansion Killzone: Shadow Fall - Intercept (PSN) allows for 4 player co-operative multiplayer.
