Sony Announces New ‘Launch Party’ Pre-Order Event

Sony has announced that a new PlayStation event will be taking place called Launch Party, to celebrate the company’s “favourite digital games releasing this spring.” Six new games will be released over the coming month, spanning through to April 26. The event will launch on March 15 with Salt and Sanctuary (via. GameSpot).

Launch Party will essentially replace Sony’s existing Spring Fever campaign – an event that highlights new releases across multiple weeks. The company states that weekly deals will still be held on both games and movies on the PlayStation Store, but “really wanted to let the new games have the spotlight with their own event.” Sony has stated that the Launch Party line up was selected collaboratively between the company and third-party studios.

“One of the best perks about being on the PlayStation Store team is that we get to work very closely with both first and third party studio teams on previewing upcoming releases. Launch Party is a celebration of our favourite digital games releasing this spring – selected in collaboration with our colleagues on both the 1st and 3rd party teams.”

Pre-ordering any of the six titles featured in Launch Party will grant players 10 percent off, with the added bonus of pre-loading and playing the games right when they release. Sony listed the titles featured in the event on the PlayStation Blog, which you can find below.

  • March 15 – Salt and Sanctuary (PS4)
  • March 22 – Day of the Tentacle Remastered (PS4/PS Vita)
  • April 4 – Enter the Gungeon (PS4)
  • April 12 – Stories: The Path of Destinies (PS4)
  • April 19 – Invisible Inc. (PS4)
  • April 26 – Alienation (PS4)

Charlie is a platforming romantic from England, that still speaks in a fashion that died with the Elizabethan era. Having been gaming since the days of Crash Bandicoot, he champions the Playstation, and is only a little bit embarassed that Super Mario Land keeps spelling his defeat.
