Sony unveils its Play 2016 lineup; pre-orders start today

Four games includes Abzu, Headlander, Brutal and Bound.


Sony has kicked out its Play 2016 sale today by announcing the opening of pre-orders for four digital releases exclusive to PS4. 

The games - Headlander, Abzu, Brutal and Bound - will be available late this month and early next month. While everyone will get these games on sale, ordering two or more of the games saves an extra 20%. On top of that, PlayStation Plus members can save an additional 20% with a pre-order, and the savings are stackable.

If you are unfamiliar with the games, here are the descriptions from the PlayStation Blog, along with the sale prices and release dates: 

Headlander (July 26, pre-order $15.99 - normally $19.99)

Adult Swim Games and acclaimed studio Double Fine team up to bring you Headlander, a ’70s-sci-fi-inspired platformer. Play as a disembodied human head that takes over bizarre robot bodies in a retro-futuristic “utopia” ruled by a deranged computer.

Abzu (August 2, pre-order $15.99 - normally $19.99)

ABZÛ is a beautiful, dreamy underwater adventure. Immerse yourself in a vibrant, hidden world that’s bursting with life but beware as you swim deeper – dangers lurk in the mysterious depths.

Brutal (August 9, pre-order $11.99 - normally $14.99)

Choose your hero – Ranger, Mage, Warrior, or Amazon – then descend into a dangerous world constructed entirely from ASCII characters. Weapon crafting, potion brewing, and local 2P multiplayer will help you survive the onslaught of enemies in these unique dungeons.

Bound (August 16, pre-order $15.99 - normally $19.99)

Developed exclusively for PlayStation 4 by Plastic, the team behind innovative titles like Linger In Shadows and Datura, Bound is a 3D platformer that combines a unique visual style with a powerful story and gameplay mechanics infused with modern dance.
