Did you say “Game Over”? Whether as a narrative spring or as an innovative gameplay mechanic, death still has a bright future ahead of it in video games. Here are five nuggets from the PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium catalog in which it is a source of memorable experiences!
Death Stranding : Director’s Cut
Hideo Kojima’s latest project, Death Stranding – available here in its Director’s Cut version – questions our relationship to death – but also to social networks – via a most singular plot and gameplay. In the chiral boots of a courier camped by actor Norman Reedus and aided by a baby in a jar, deliver rare commodities and materials to the last bastions of humanity and try to reconnect what remains of the United States, completely overwhelmed following a terrible cataclysm called Death Stranding. During your deliveries, you will meet intriguing characters as well as ghosts whose sole purpose is to send you to the afterlife.
Die again and again. This is how to sum up the daily life of Colt, the hero of DEATHLOOP! Trapped in a time loop on the island of Blackreef, the latter is forced to relive the same events after a certain time (or after his death). For what ? It’s up to you to find out by interrogating and assassinating the Visionaries who reign supreme over the archipelago., and this in a single loop. In other words, you will need to know their habits and the environments of the game at your fingertips to achieve this. And as if this task was not complicated enough, an assassin named Julianna (controllable by another player) can randomly intervene during your run to stop your progress.
Horror and survival game par excellence, Days Gone transports you to a post-apocalyptic universe, where voracious humans and animals, called mutants, sow chaos. So certainly, these mutants are not strictly speaking undead, their ability to move quickly in hordes will make you regret the slowness of traditional zombies! On the handlebars of your big motorcycle and using weapons made with the means at hand, annihilate this threat and find your missing wife, all in an open world as gigantic as it is hostile !
In the family of management games with an original concept, we ask for Graveyard Keeper from the Lazy Bear Games studio. What makes it so special? This puts you in control… of a medieval cemetery ! Your goal is to bury, dig up, and grow your little undertaker business, taking care to keep costs as low as possible. How ? For example, by selling meat… from the deceased. When death rhymes with profitability.
Death is not inevitable in Motion Twin’s demanding metroidvania, Dead Cells! In the skin of a decapitated hero constantly brought back to life, clear a castle full of tough enemies and bosses. An experience that will test your tenacity as you will have to repeatedly traverse the mansion and its procedurally generated environments to unlock the most powerful weapons and abilities.
