What’s Happening on PlayStation Network This Week?
Best to check what’s going on at the PlayStation Network every now and then.
If you’re a PlayStation 4 or a PS VITA user, it’s best to check out the PlayStation Network from time to time to see if there’s anything new. This is especially true if you’re a PS Plus user, in case some big game is available for free for a limited time only, like God of War III Remastered last month.
If you’re not sure what’s happening on the PlayStation Network this week, don’t worry. We got you covered.
PlayStation Network Update
We’re 2 days away from the release of a new entry in the NieR saga, NieR:Automata. It will be released on 23rd February 2017 but keep in mind, this is the Japanese version. The English version is expected to come out on March 7th 2017. The European version will be out slighly later, on March 10th 2017.
The story of “NieR:Automata” is set in a distant future. Extra-terrestrial invaders attack the Earth with ruthless weapons known as “machine lifeforms” and mankind takes refuge on the Moon. To reclaim the planet, android soldiers are created to combat against the deadly machines. Players will play as “2B”, one of the androids in the newly formed squad “YoRHa”, engage in the bitter battle against the machines, and unveil the long-forgotten truth of this world.
The Japanese version of NieR:Automata will be available at the PlayStation Store in the PlayStation Network for RM249.
Super Robot Wars V Pre-Order Bonus
The 25th anniversary of the infamous Super Robot Wars game series will finally see it have a new entry in the main Super Robot Wars games; Super Robot Wars V. It will still retain its crossover tactical RPG element, featuring mechs from notable anime series such as Mobile Suit Gundam, Fullmetal Panic, Evangelion, Mazinger, and a whole lot more.
Apparently, Super Robot Wars V will have a new storyline as well as a new set of original characters so if you’ve not played the other Super Robot Wars games, you’ll have no trouble understanding the game’s story. And just like Super Robot Wars OGs: The Moon Dwellers, this will have English localizations.
Pre-order bonus for “Super Robot Wars V” include: Present Scenario “Special Starter Pack”, SRW V Custom Theme， Playable machine “ Huckebein”, “ Grungust” ＆ Present scenario “V Crystal”.
Super Robot Wars V will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and PS VITA on 23rd February, and it will be priced at RM249 and RM219 for its respective platform. And yes, you can get it on the PlayStation Store on the PlayStation Network.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Open Beta
If you’re a big fan of the Tom Clancy series, then this might be your kind of news. Ghost Recon Wildlands is having an open beta for all gamers since yesterday and it will be going on until 27th February 2017.

Pokdepinion: And I thought the PlayStation team was a little on the quiet side recently. Especially with Nintendo Switch news blowing up, I thought this would be a great time to get your attention on other things as well.
