Sony Computer Entertainment America has announced three new
The first, a free-to-play naval combat title called Cutthroats: Battle for Black Powder Cove, is out now in the US.
It will be followed this spring by post-apocalyptic shooter No Man's Land, which is described as "arguably PlayStation Home's most ambitious title yet", and fantasy-themed multiplayer RPG Mercia this summer.
Here are the official descriptions, followed by a couple of movies and the debut screens for No Man's Land and Mercia.
Cutthroats: Battle for Black Powder Cove (out now): This team-based game puts treasure-troving, ship-sinking scoundrels in a series of breathtaking battles for riches beyond your wildest imagination. In this free-to-play platform exclusive, six teams of up to four players each take to the high seas, blasting each other's boats to smithereens in an ongoing sequence of seafaring skirmishes to increase XP and unlock exclusive content.
No Man's Land (out spring 2012): Hyper-violent, intensely gritty, and absolutely not for the faint-of-heart, No Man's Land is a post-apocalyptic third-person shooter unlike any other game in the history of PlayStation Home. Race through urban wastelands where chaos and disorder are ever-present, dodging enemy fire and exacting revenge on roaming bands of death-addicted warriors in a world gone mad. Squads of up to four players each clash in two game modes - Team Deathmatch and Scavengers - in pulse-pounding multiplayer mayhem where only the savage survive.
Mercia (out summer 2012): Enter the fractured realms of Mercia, Home's exclusive multiplayer RPG (Role-Playing Game). Take up your sword and embark on a journey through a fantastical world where adventure lies around every corner. With a high-fantasy narrative and gameplay elements that recount the most popular action RPGs of all time, Mercia offers players an enchanting online game experience across wondrous lands where heroes are born...and magic reigns supreme.
