After the success of the previous vita game packs; Sony have revealed a brand new pack coming this month in a Bundle in the form of the Action mega pack which will bundle 3 PS Vita games and 2 PSP games.
The Bundle which will become available in select markets this June was announced on the PlayStation Blog which stated that the bundle will contain a PlayStation Vita Slim Console, an 8GB memory card aswell as a Voucher for 5 games which are listed and detailed below.
- Injustice: Gods Among Us: Ultimate Edition
In a world where the lines between Hero & Villain are blurred, Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition brings about a brand new story in which The Joker is murdered by Superman which creates an alternate world in which Superman rules a dictatorship and in a last chance effort to stop the evil Superman from taking over humanity; The Batman of the alternate universe brings the good versions of Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman & Green Arrow through a dimensional rift to stop Superman and save the world. Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition brings the great gameplay styling of Mortal Kombat to the DC Universe and with extra skins and characters (Lobo, Scorpion, Batgirl, Etc…). Injustice: Gods Among Us: Ultimate Edition is one of the best fighters out there at this moment.
- Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate
Set three months after the events of Arkham Origins; A Mysterious explosion at Blackgate Prison allows Joker, Penguin and Black Mask to each gather enough henchmen in order to take over their own section of the prison. With no other options; Its up to Batman to swoop in and save the day with the help of the mysterious Catwoman. Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate is a 2.5D Action side scroller that includes more references to the Suicide Squad which started in Arkham Origins aswell as plenty of side scrolling action to wet your appetite. Arkham Origins Blackgate is a good game however it could have been better compared to the actual Arkham games.
- PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale
Something big is happening, A Mysterious set of notes start appearing to the many characters of the PlayStation Universe to test their skills in a battle royale to prove who is the best with the overall villain of the competition being closer to PlayStation then they may think. PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale is commonly referred to as the PlayStation equivelant of the highly popular Nintendo series; Super Smash Bros. in which characters from well known and loved PlayStation franchises duke it out in franchise themed arenas. Characters in the game include fan favorites such as Nathan Drake, Ratchet & Clank and Sackboy, Third Party Guests such as Big Daddy, Dante and Heihachi Mishima aswell as lesser known characters like Fat Princess, Toro Inoue and Colonel Mael Radec. This game is great but it could have been a lot better with the inclusion of some major characters *Ahem* Cloud Strife, Crash Bandicoot, Lara Croft & Snake.
- God of War: Chains of Olympus
As with the previous games in the God of War franchise, God of War: Chains of Olympus is set in an alternate version of ancient Greece, populated by the Olympian Gods, Titans, and other beings of Greek mythology. With the exception offlashbacks, the events are set between those of the games Ascension (2013) and God of War (2005). Several locations are explored, including the real world locations of the ancient cities of Attica and Marathon, the latter including fictional settings of the Temple of Helios and the Caves of Olympus, and several other fictional locations, including the Underworld, which features scenes at the River Styx, Tartarus, the Fields of Elysium, and the Temple of Persephone. The game continues the story of Spartan Warrior; Kratos as he continues to seek vengeance on the gods who betrayed him. The game keeps the traditional hack and slash gameplay well known in the series and is also made by Ready At Dawn; The studio working on next year’s PS4 Exclusive; The Order 1886.
- Killzone: Liberation
In Killzone: Liberation, two months after the events of Killzone, the Helghast have been dealt a hefty blow from the last game, but the war is far from over. The enemy still controls large parts of the planet Vekta, and though the ISA armies are fighting hard, they are losing ground. The rules of war have been cast aside with the sadistic Helghast General Armin Metrac, employed by the Helghast Emperor Scolar Visari to use brutal measures in order to seize the initiative after their past defeat and strengthen his position further. Its up to ISA Soldier Jan Templar to stop the Helghast threat. The game plays like a Third Person Shooter/Dungeon Crawler.
