Op de E3 kondigde Sony een nieuwe sociaal offensief aan met PlayLink. Een nieuw soort label waaronder games uitkomen die gemaakt zijn om met je vrienden en familie te spelen. Om de instapdrempel nog wat te verlagen, werken deze games ook in combinatie met een mobiele telefoon en inmiddels is de eerste PlayLink game verkrijgbaar.

Dat is natuurlijk That’s You!, die al even uit is, maar er staat meer op stapel. Via het Amerikaanse PlayStation Blog heeft Sony bekendgemaakt welke games we de komende tijd nog meer mogen verwachten. Vreemd genoeg werd er op het Europese blog geen melding van gemaakt, dus de releasedatum per titel kan mogelijk wat afwijken.

Hidden Agenda

Release: 24 oktober

Omschrijving: In this gritty crime thriller that won Game Critics Awards’ Best Family/Social game at E3, and Best Casual Game at Gamescom, Hidden Agenda invites players to join homicide detective Becky Marney and district attorney Felicity Graves as they investigate the case of a serial killer known as “The Trapper.”

Inspired by videos of gamers playing Until Dawn with their friends and family all shouting out choices, the talented team at Supermassive Games crafted Hidden Agenda with a focus on playing as a group. You and your friends will use your phones to vote on the tough decisions, determining the course of the investigation in this gripping narrative branching story. Remember, characters may live or die based on what your group decides.

Trust plays a big role in Hidden Agenda’s story not just between the characters, but also between members of your group. Someone may receive a “Hidden Agenda” card on their phone (see what they did there?) which awards points for steering the story in a particular direction.

Watch out if your friends are acting particularly sneaky or manipulative. Imagine it as a movie night but you all will be in control of how the story unfolds!

Knowledge is Power

Release: 24 oktober

Omschrijving: You like Trivia? We call this a “combative” trivia game, wrapped in a sparkling, shiny package.

From Wish Studios (the same developers of That’s You!), we invite you to test your brainpower inside the Pyramid with more than 5000 questions as well as targeting on your rivals with “Power Plays.” Using your phone or tablet, freeze your opponents’ touch screen so they have to smash through the ice to get to the answer or slime their screens with green gloop so they have to wipe it clean to see the answers. It’s not how smart you are; it’s how dirty you play!
