Along with the PlayStation Plus games detailed by the Inquisitr earlier, the new PlayStation Games for the week of May 3 include Uruk, a decade old point and click adventure game and Nazis.
Among the new PlayStation games for the week that are from an age past is Syberia II. This third-person, point and click adventure game follows the traditions of the genre with puzzles to solve in order to progress through the game. While it was not under the LucasArts banner, it did adhere to the rules that LucasArts used: it is impossible to die or get stuck at any point in the game allowing the player to concentrate on the narrative and environments rather than worrying about dying from making a mistake as you could in some of the earliest point-and-click adventures such as King's Quest.Syberia II is obviously a sequel to Syberia and continues the tale of Kate Walker, an American Lawyer who throws off her life of stress in New York in order to join a somewhat crazy inventor in remote Russia because that is what one does when someone wants to get away from it all.
The story of a decade old PC adventure game coming to the Sony platforms may make some gamers scratch their heads, but the story is one of corporate merging and IP acquisition. The original publisher of Syberia and Syberia II is a company called Microids. In 2009 the company was purchased by Anuman Interactive, a French video game publisher. Anuman became an official publisher for Sony's PlayStation line of consoles and began the work of porting Syberia series to the PlayStation along with the announcement of Syberia III.
Going back even further to 1985, City Connection is receiving a release with the other new PlayStation games for the week. Originally an arcade cabinet game in Japan, which was later ported to the MSX and Nintendo Entertainment System. It makes its debut on the PlayStation 4 this week.
In keeping with the theme of looking backwards in time, or in this case back and to the side, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is releasing this week as well. This standalone prequel to the well received Wolfenstein: The New Order was developed by MachineGames, making it their second game after The New Order. The expansion is set across either chapters with two interconnected stories. The first centers around finding the way to Deathshead's base with the second returning to the more supernatural side of the series with Blazkowicz meeting a Nazi archaeologist who is investigating artifacts that may release a "dark and ancient power."
