The first game is free-to-play navel combat title Cutthroats: Battle for Black Powder Cove, that will be followed by the post-apocalyptic shooter No Man’s Land. Finally, multiplayer RPG Mercia will release this summer.
Cutthroats: Battle for Black Powder Cove (out now): This team-based game puts treasure-troving, ship-sinking scoundrels in a series of breathtaking battles for riches beyond your wildest imagination. In this free-to-play platform exclusive, six teams of up to four players each take to the high seas, blasting each other’s boats to smithereens in an ongoing sequence of seafaring skirmishes to increase XP and unlock exclusive content.
No Man’s Land (out spring 2012): Hyper-violent, intensely gritty, and absolutely not for the faint-of-heart, No Man’s Land is a post-apocalyptic third-person shooter unlike any other game in the history of PlayStation Home. Race through urban wastelands where chaos and disorder are ever-present, dodging enemy fire and exacting revenge on roaming bands of death-addicted warriors in a world gone mad. Squads of up to four players each clash in two game modes – Team Deathmatch and Scavengers – in pulse-pounding multiplayer mayhem where only the savage survive.
Mercia (out summer 2012): Enter the fractured realms of Mercia, Home’s exclusive multiplayer RPG (Role-Playing Game). Take up your sword and embark on a journey through a fantastical world where adventure lies around every corner. With a high-fantasy narrative and gameplay elements that recount the most popular action RPGs of all time, Mercia offers players an enchanting online game experience across wondrous lands where heroes are born…and magic reigns supreme.
EGM’s TAKE: Sony has been pretty quiet on PlayStation Home updates for some time now. Now fans can rejoice at three new games coming to the platform. If you’ve been stood around in Home Square wondering what you were going to do with your time then wonder no more. All three of these look incredibly polished for Home title, especially the RPG Mercia. We sense a few more people popping into Home over the next few months to try these out.
