With the PlayStation 4 scheduled for release next week, November 15th, I find it a little surprising that the launch lineup continues to be revised. This is likely the final list though and it sees the removal of two titles, the addition of six and the detailing of 11 entertainment apps.
The two titles that are being removed from the launch lineup are Pinball Arcade and Tiny Brains. Pinball Arcade is, as the title says, a pinball game that features a multitude of licensed tables. The game has previously been released for the PlayStation 3. Tiny Brains is a multiplayer puzzle title developed by Spearhead Games.
While it’s upsetting to lose two launch titles, the six new titles more than make up for it. We now get DC Universe Online, Need for Speed Rivals, Blacklight Retribution, Trine 2: The Complete Story, Warframe and Super Motherload. That’s a solid selection of both big name titles and smaller indie fare.
The updated PlayStation 4 launch list now looks like the following:
- Killzone: Shadow Fall
- Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
- Call of Duty: Ghosts
- Battlefield 4
- Skylanders Swap Force
- NBA 2K14
- Angry Birds Star Wars
- FIFA 14
- Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition
- Lego Marvel Super Heroes
- Madden NFL 25
- Just Dance 2014
- DC Universe Online
- Need for Speed Rivals
- Blacklight Retribution
- Trine 2: The Complete Story
- Super Motherload
