Sony recently announced its new PlayStation Indies initiative which aims to put the spotlight on the best indie games that are being published on the PlayStation platform. Headed by Shuhei Yoshida, PlayStation Indies goal “is to make PlayStation the best place to develop, find, and play great indie games.”
As part of the PlayStation Indies initiative, nine new indie games coming to the PS4 and the PS5 were revealed recently. Here’s a quick rundown of the upcoming PlayStation indie titles:
Worms Rumble is the latest installment in the long-running Worms franchise, and it’s a real-time arena-based, 32 player multiplayer title that will release on both PS4 and PS5 in late 2020.
Haven is a stylish and chill co-op adventure game that follows the journey of two lovers who have “escaped to a lost planet in a desperate attempt to stay together.” Haven releases soon on the PS4.
Releasing on the PS4, Carto is a cute puzzle adventure title that lets players explore mysterious lands while playing with a “unique, world-shifting puzzle mechanic.”
