PlayStation Store, Assassin's Creed: Rise of Ragnarok and WWE 2K22

PlayStation Store, Assassin's Creed

After the February binge, the pace of PlayStation Store updates suffers an inevitable slowdown, while reserving some potential surprises. In fact, two rather anticipated products arrive on the digital platform: on the one hand Assassin's Creed Valhalla: The Dawn of Ragnarok, on the other WWE 2K22.

As usual, however, these are not the only releases of the week: titles such as The Cruel King and the Great Hero, the excellent jRPG developed by Nippon Ichi Software, and the fascinating Submerged: Hidden Paths, a sequel to the adventure published in 2015, which however did not hit the mark, also find their place in the latest update. .

Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarok

Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarok, Odin admires the panorama of Svartalfheim First content of Year 2 of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Dawn of Ragnarok (PS5 and PS4</a>, € 39.99) is the largest and most ambitious expansion to date for the Ubisoft series. It is an adventure based once again on the visions of Eivor, who relives Odin's dramatic mission to Svartalfheim, the kingdom originally inhabited by the dark elves and now the refuge of the last surviving dwarves of the invasion of the Muspelheim troops. >
Having arrived in this world to save his son Baldr, kidnapped by the fire giant Surtr and his evil family, the Havi discovers that his strength is not enough to carry out the task but is aided by the dwarves , who see in him the hope of freeing the kingdom from siege and give him Hugr's Predator, a bracelet that allows him to acquire particular skills.

Thanks to it Odin can transform into a crow or take the form of Muspel and Jotun to use powers related to fire and ice in his battles, which will lead him to face the children and the wife of Surtr first to confront his titanic nemesis again in a desperate attempt to avoid Baldr's death.

In the review of Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarok we talked about how the story, setting and characters of the expansion are worth the ticket price, but that at the same time some obvious problems in balancing the difficulty and a substantially shorter duration than promised end up clipping the wings of an experience with undoubted potential.

WWE 2K22

WWE 2K22, Rey Mysterio against Eddie Guerrero in Showcase mode After more than two years of development, the 2K Games brand returns with WWE 2K22 (PS5, € 74.99; PS4, € 69.99): a edition re designed in the mechanics and in the technical sector after the disastrous launch of the last episode, thanks to a revolutionized control system and evident improvements on the gameplay front, which is more immediate and fun.

Important steps forward, which, however, do not embrace the entire production: as we wrote in the WWE 2K22 review, problems with collisions and artificial intelligence still persist, but above all the more substantial modes appear anchored to a slow and dated structure. Critical issues only partially mitigated by the very large roster and graphics never so faithful to the real counterpart.

The other games

The Cruel King and the Great Hero, Yuu explores the scenario The Cruel King and the Great Hero (PS4, € 29.99) tells the story of Yuu, the adopted daughter of a dragon, struggling with the mysteries and pitfalls of a fascinating fantasy world governed by traditional RPG mechanics, turn-based combat and a style very pleasant, although generic in some situations: we talked about it in the review of The Cruel King and the Great Hero.

Submerged: Hidden Depths (PS5 and PS4, € 29.99) is instead the sequel to Submerged, the adventure published in 2015 which had not thrilled the critics but which evidently managed to carve out enough feedback for a second attempt, which will once again see us exploring cities submerged by water aboard a boat. The review of Submerged: Hidden Depths.

Promotion of the Week

Back 4 Blood, our character prepares to explore a forest full of zombies The protagonist of the Promotion of the Week is Back 4 Blood (review), the zombie-based cooperative shooter developed by Turtle Rock Studios that stands as the spiritual sequel to the classic Left 4 Dead, and with good reason. The formula is in fact the one that millions of players have come to love, but declined in a more modern guise and with some added value.

Until March 17th it will be possible to buy the standard edition of the 34-player game, € 99 instead of 69.99, thus saving 50%: great news for those waiting for a discount to be able to recover this title. We will also be able to opt for the Annual Pass at € 23.99 instead of € 39.99, thus obtaining all the downloadable content planned for the first year.
