PS4 Flash Sale On PSN Games In The US
For best results, play late at night with the lights off.
As Sony likes to do every month or so, it has just unveiled a new Flash Sale on the PlayStation Store. Between now and April 16, you can get a good number of games at heavily discounted rates. It's Friday the 13th weekend, so it's no surprise the theme is horror. Read on to see what standout games are on sale this weekend. Just make sure to lock in your purchases before the sale ends on April 16.
The game that resembles a horror movie most closely is Until Dawn, a cinematic adventure game about a group of teens staying at a cabin in the woods. It's on sale for $6 (down from $20). If you haven't played The Last of Us Remastered, you'll almost certainly enjoy its cinematic bonafides as you fight nightmare creatures in a post-apocalyptic world. It's on sale for $8 (regularly $20), and its Left Behind expansion is down to $4 (from $10).
The Evil Within 2 ($30 instead of $60) and Outlast 2 ($12, down from $30) both bring the spooks by dropping you in regions haunted by supernatural horrors. The BioShock Collection ($20, down from $60) and Soma ($8, regularly $30) are frightening games about big ideas, and both feature claustrophobic underwater settings. Alien: Isolation has a sealed-in setting of its own in the form of a space station. It's on sale for $9, instead of its usual $30. Another space horror game, Prey, is on sale for half off at $20.
A number of dark indie games are also on sale. Inside is $8 (was $20), while Limbo is $2 (down from $10). The spooky narrative-heavy Oxenfree is $5 (down from $20), while the ultra-challening Darkest Dungeon is $10 (down from $25). The rhythm-roguelike Crypt of the Necrodancer is $3 (was $15).
If mind-bending games that are only occasionally horrific are more your speed--and you don't mind reading a lot of text--check out the collection Zero Escape: The Nonary Games ($20, down from $50) and its sequel Zero Time Dilemma ($16, down from $40).
Perhaps you're in the mood to revisit some PS One classics (or see what all the older gamers are talking about). Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is on sale for $3, while the original Silent Hill and a few early Resident Evil games are down to around $2 each. Unfortunately those aren't playable on PS4, but you can play them on PS3, PS Vita, or PSP.
Visit the Flash Sale page on the PlayStation Store for the full list. All in all, this is a pretty killer sale for anyone looking to add some horror to their Friday the 13th weekend.
