THQ Nordic have some exciting games on the horizon
THQ Nordic’s 10th Anniversary Showcase unveiled a wide range of games, and to be fair, some of the games were pretty unexpected, which is undoubtedly a good thing. It was almost like a classic goodie bag you would get after a birthday party; there was something for everyone. Here is the complete list of PS5 and PS4 games announced from the showcase.
SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake
Developed by Purple Lamp Studios
Aye-aye, captain! Get ready for a brand-new spanking game from our favourite square sponge as he attempts to take on the cosmos to save his friends. After SpongeBob and Patrick are granted wishes from a mysterious fortune teller named Kassandra, they inadvertently open several portals to Wishworlds. As a result, many of their beloved friends get lost in these strange portals. Barnacles!
SpongeBob now needs to take a break from severing Krabby Pattys and rescue his friends from these weird gateways. SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake is coming to PS4 and PS5.
Outcast 2 – A New Beginning
Developed by Appeal Studios
Outcast 2 – A New Beginning is an official sequel to the original 1999 cult classic, Outcast. In the trailer, we see protagonist Cutter Slade revisiting the wonderful world of Adelpha twenty years after the original game.
The former navy SEAL is resurrected by the Yods and wakes to find the Talan people enslaved by an army of invading robots patrolling the planet for resources. Outcast 2 – A New Beginning has been developed by the original team behind the first game. Developers Appeal Studios have attempted to craft an open-world action-adventure featuring fast-paced 3rd person combat. Hopefully, they recreate the iconic non-linear sci-fi feel, with well-thought-out player-based actions that the original game thrived in. Outcast 2 – A New Beginning will be coming to PS5.
Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed
Developed by Black Forest Games
The extraterritorial visitor makes a return trip in a new complete remake. Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed is fully rebuilt from the ground up using the Unreal Engine 4. Crypto makes his reappearance in the groovy, swinging ’60s where he will not just have to navigate the menacing workings of the KGB as they blow up this mother ship, he will also have to combat psychedelic tie-dye shirts, yoga pants, long hair and beards. Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed will be released on the PS5.
MX vs ATV: Legends
Developed by Rainbow Studios
It’s a race for supremacy in MX vs ATV: Legends. It features new open environments and has a career mode that explores some of the highs and lows of becoming a world-famous professional rider. The choices made will lead to different paths with sponsorship opportunities and special invitational events. In addition, riders and vehicles can be extensively customised to suit your racing style. MX vs ATV Legends is coming soon to PS4 and PS5.
Developed by Piranha Bytes
Finally, we got to see a new story trailer explaining what pushed Jax the Beast of Xacor into isolation. Coming back from seclusion from the outside world, Jax will have to unite and free the people of Magalan once again to help fight against the suing danger of the Skyandies. ELEX II is the sequel to the post-apocalyptic role-playing game ELEX, and like the original, it will be an open-world experience. ELEX II will be heading to PS5 and PS4.
