Sony showed some love to a handful of indie developers and announced seven new games headed to both PS4 and PS5. While most of these games already existed and were simply not announced for the PlayStation platforms, it is still great to see new games coming our way.
Keep in mind that a lot of these games still have no release date but Sony wanted to show them to you anyway. If you missed the announcements, catch up on all seven indie games Sony revealed for PS4 and PS5 down below.
Oxenfree 2: Lost Signals
The sequel to the 2016 Oxenfree. Set to feature a brand new cast of characters as players control Riley Poverly and investigate strange electromagnetic signals in her home. The game is in development at Night School for PS4 and PS5. It is set to launch sometime later this year.
A Short Hike
A Short Hike is created by Adam Robinson-Yu and is an open-world exploration game where a small bird goes on an adventure. This bird decides to climb a giant mountain and comes into contact with a range of puzzles and obstacles that players need to overcome. The game is headed to PS4 and PS5 in the weeks ahead.
Axiom Verge 2
The sequel to Tom Happ’s retro shooter. The game is set to feature two explorable worlds as players move between both layers throughout their adventure. Axiom Verge 2 is set to move away from the original game’s linear gameplay to a more non-linear approach. The game is headed to PS4 and PS5 sometime in the future.
Phobia Game Studios is releasing Carrion on PS4 and PS5 later this year. Players take on the role of an amorphous creature as they are set loose on the world. It is a gruesome, and rather confusing-looking game but features a unique art style and freaky creatures.
Sol Cresta is Platinum Games’ sequel to the classic vertical scrolling game called Moon Cresta and Terra Cresta. Chief game designer Hideki Kamiya explained the game’s new direction in a blog post including detailing the new formations players can experience in Sol Cresta. The game is headed to both PS4 and PS5 in the coming months.
Wytchwood is described as a “bewitching crafting adventure” where players take on the role of a witch. She has been caught up in an agreement that she can’t remember making. Now she explores the mysterious lands inspired by classic fables to hunt down ingredients to make spells. The game is headed to PS4 and PS5 sometime in the future.
Of course, everyone has heard about Hades by now. The extremely popular roguelike game is headed to PS5 and PS4 on 13 August. Supergiant Games has already released the game on Switch and PC so it is great to see this game headed to the PlayStation platforms.
