Developed by Zombie Studios, Blacklight: Retribution is a free-to-play title and the first game from Sony's Pub Fund for the PS4. The game launched last year for the PC.

A trailer for Primal Carnage: Genesis was shown, depicting a Tyrannosaurus rex escaping from a laboratory. The game runs on the Unreal Engine 4 and is described as a "story-driven" experience that will be released episodically.

"It was a difficult decision for us, given the relative newness of episodic storytelling," game director Ashton Andersen said in a statement. "Ultimately, the episodic method ended up being the clear victor due to the versatile nature of creating a story episode by episode."

Sony also announced today that Spelunky is headed to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. The game launched last summer for the Xbox 360 and PC to a positive critical reception.

Lastly, Sony also confirmed earlier reports that The Walking Dead and Limbo are headed to the PS Vita, though no release dates were divulged.
