Leading the charge this week is Steel Rain multiplayer add-on content for Killzone 3. The content will sell for $5, but PlayStation Plus subscribers can download it for free until May 10.
As for the maps within the content, Steel Rain is composed of two new environments based on Killzone 3's single-player campaign. Junkyard is a guerrilla warfare map that has players duking it out in a drenched garbage processing factory. The other map, Stahl Arms, is a warzone map set in one of the biggest weapon plants on Helghan.
The other new batch of shooter content out now is the Gun Sonata ($7) add-on for People Can Fly's Bulletstorm. The content includes three new maps for the game's Anarchy multiplayer mode: the murky Sewers of Stygia, the ruins of Hotel Elysium, and the more expansive Villa. Additionally, the new DLC adds two new environments for the game's score-attack Echo mode: Crash Site and Guns of Stygia.
Further, gamers will earn additional ways to kill with skill with the Gun Sonata content. Two new leash enhancements are bundled with the DLC: the Flamingo and the Pulp.
Switching to full games, Sony added three new titles to its PlayStation 3 download space today, the first of which is Dungeon Hunter: Alliance ($13). An action role-playing game set inside the fictional world of Gothicus, the game lets up to four players fight together against bands of creatures.
Also out now for the PS3 is Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes ($15). A puzzle game with role-playing elements, the title's main story lets gamers play as any of five young heroes, each with unique campaigns. Gamers will work through the turn-based game by battling foes, and can fight either online or off.
The last game out for the PS3 this week is Assassin's Creed ($20), the first in Ubisoft's praised stealth action franchise.
Switching to the PSP storefront, Sony added just one new game to the spot today, Patapon 3. The game follows the rhythmic pursuits of a belligerent tribal warband intent on slaying beasts as mythical as themselves, using a variety of primitive weapons. Gameplay is heavily influenced by the rhythm genre, in that actions in the game--such as advancing, retreating, blocking, and attacking--are accomplished by hitting an appropriate combination of buttons in time with the in-game soundtrack.
Also now available on the PSN are the Red Dead Redemption preorder bonuses. Deadly Assassin Outfit, Golden Guns Weapon Pack, and War Horse are now available for 80 Microsoft points, or $1 apiece.
A full list of the week's deals and new PlayStation Store content, including themes, wallpapers, demos, discounts, and add-on content, is available on the PlayStation Blog.
