In November, we saw Sony’s release their Next-Gen console known as the PlayStation 4. The PlayStation 4, with its superior specs, has sold millions of units since its release. With tons of new game coming out later this year, August seems to be a month that we won’t be seeing many new games come out. Instead we’ll be seeing remastered versions of the Last-Gen games like Minecraft, Metro: Redux and more.
Here are some of the new as well as old remastered games which will be coming out in the month of August for the PlayStation 4:
Metro Redux is a Post-Apocalyptic First Person Shooter, and is a two-part remake of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light. It is being developed by 4A Games and published by Deep Sliver. Metro Redux remakes both games with a improved Engine. While Metro: Last Light will have a improved version, Metro 2033 will be completely remade in the Last Light engine with the same features as Metro: Last Light. Metro Redux is being made for the next-generation consoles as well as PC – so this is a remake of the older Metro games with improved graphics.
One of the most popular and addicting games in the world, Minecraft is played by millions of players around the world. Minecraft is an open world game that has no specific goals for the player to accomplish, allowing players a large amount of freedom in choosing how to play the game. The core gameplay revolves around breaking and placing blocks. The game world is essentially composed of rough 3D objects—mainly cubes—that are arranged in a fixed grid pattern and represent different materials, such as dirt, stone, various ores, water, and tree trunks. While players can move freely across the world, objects and items can only be placed at fixed locations relative to the grid. Players can gather these material blocks and place them elsewhere, thus allowing for various constructions.
