Welcome back to On The Horizon, our weekly update on what games are coming out and what’s new on Gamer Horizon!
This week the PlayStation Vita is getting an exclusive! Soul Sacrifice is an action role playing game that takes advantage of the many unique features of the PlayStation Vita, including front and rear touch controls and motion sensing. In order to defeat the mythological enemies in Soul Sacrifice, players must sacrifice parts of their character and the world around them in order to gain strength. Though this process, the player’s character will not only gain new abilities, but will also change physically. That should prove to be an interesting form of character development. What would you sacrifice for power? Soul Sacrifice is rated M for Mature and will be released on Tuesday, April 30th.
Also coming out on Tuesday, April 30th is the Director’s Cut of the open world psychological horror game, Deadly Premonition. This special edition will be available exclusively for the PlayStation 3 and will include a variety of new features. In addition to the complete graphical overhaul, the game has new branching ending and new scenarios at the beginning and end of the game. There is also a new item, a camera, that allows players to take screenshots as they play through the game. Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut is rated M for Mature and will be available for $39.99. It supports the PlayStation Move and is 3D compatible.
And this week on Gamer Horizon, Ted is going to be providing his weekly PlayStation Plus update and will also have a review for Assassin’s Creed 3: The Tyranny of King Washington: The Redemption, the final chapter of that immensely titled DLC trilogy. Sean’s been keeping the zombies at bay and will be reviewing Dead Island: Riptide. Ari has become spontaneously addicted to Magic: The Gathering and has been playing a lot of last year’s Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013. With Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014 coming out this June, he’ll be writing up a preview and a wishlist for some new or improved features that the older games are missing. Look forward to all of that and the latest news this week on Gamer Horizon.
