Age of Wonders 4 Arrives on PS5

Age of Wonders 4 PS5

We’re kicking off this week with something wonderful, as Age of Wonders 4 opens a magic portal to PS5. In this realm of your own creation, you’ll build an empire to face rival wizard kings who are set on conquering your land. The solution? Conquer theirs first.

Take Control as Ruler

Guide a faction to greatness through strategic decision-making, or let the AI auto-manage the trickier bits. Select a ruler and their faction from pre-built choices like Gloom Hooknail and the Corrupted Goblins, or Cruel Blightlord of the Fiendish Rodents. Alternatively, create your own from a host of choices like felines, toadkin, or molekin, shaping a fantasy world capped only by your imagination.

Deep Lore and Engaging Gameplay

Age of Wonders 4 offers attention to detail and deep lore in every decision. Hunt for tomes of magic across the land, expand your empire to the edges of civilization, and face even more complex challenges in an endgame that makes playing again and again a key part of your experience. Rule your realm wisely as Age of Wonders 4 comes to PS5 on the 2nd of May.

Demon Skin: A Dark and Brutal Adventure

Demon Skin

Next up is Demon Skin, a hack and slash adventure set in a world overrun with darkness, coming to PlayStation.

Become a Member of the Order of Wanderers

As a member of the Order of Wanderers, it’s up to you to use your divine power to fight back evil. After an unfortunate mishap with an ancient crystal leaves you looking like a demon, you must regain your true, rather hunky appearance.

Master the Combat System

With loads of enemies to smash using various weapons, Demon Skin challenges you to master its combat for savage finishers and gnarly boss battles. Time your blows for maximum damage, uncover secrets in a fully realized atmospheric setting, and fight to defend the world from evil in this brutal adventure. Shed your humanity and take on demon skin when it comes to PS5 and PS4 on the 5th of May.

Hogwarts Legacy: A Magical Adventure Awaits

Hogwarts Legacy PS4

We’ve also got the PS4 release of Hogwarts Legacy this week, spreading the magic of the Wizarding World to a whole new generation. In Hogwarts Legacy, you can jump into an open world centered on the iconic Wizarding School, exploring the grounds and the surrounding village of Hogsmeade as you embark on a journey that could change the fate of everything.

Unleash Your Wizarding Potential

In this magical adventure, you’ll be brewing potions, capturing magical creatures, mastering your broom flying, and learning spells of every sort, from defense against the dark arts to the dark arts themselves. The possibilities for magical mischief are endless in an era previously unexplored by the books, so it’s up to you to decide what legacy you will leave as you explore this rich, extraordinary world. Write your own story in Hogwarts Legacy when it comes to PS4 on the 4th of May.

Grindstone: A Challenging Puzzle Adventure


Keep your nose safe as Grindstone comes smashing onto PlayStation this week. This unique game combines an adorable art style with splattery combat puzzles. Your task is to slash your way through creeps by chaining together monster-chopping combos, collecting treasure, and of course, the titular Grindstones as you go.

Addictive Gameplay and Upgrades

Once you start nailing those screen-cleaning chains, you’ll find it impossible to put down. Everything in Grindstone is Moorish, from the drip feed of upgrades to the excellent soundtrack. Expect to lose yourself to this mountain climb for some time when Grindstone is unleashed on PS4 and PS5 on the 3rd of May.
