Sony has announced PLAY 2016, described by the publisher as a “celebration of our favourite digital PS4 games releasing this summer – selected in collaboration with our colleagues on both the 1st and 3rd party teams”.

All four games in PLAY 2016 are making their console-first digital debuts on PS4 and PS Plus members are being offered a 20 per cent pre-order discount. Each game in the PLAY 2016 line-up also comes with an exclusive PS4 theme when pre-ordered.

Furthermore, anyone who purchases two or more PLAY 2016 titles by August 23 will receive a coupon for 20 per cent off their entire cart purchase at PlayStation Store.

PLAY 2016 line-up:

July 26 – Headlander: Adult Swim Games and acclaimed studio Double Fine team up to bring you Headlander, a ’70s-sci-fi-inspired platformer. Play as a disembodied human head that takes over bizarre robot bodies in a retro-futuristic “utopia” ruled by a deranged computer.

August 2 – ABZU: ABZÛ is a beautiful, dreamy underwater adventure. Immerse yourself in a vibrant, hidden world that’s bursting with life but beware as you swim deeper – dangers lurk in the mysterious depths.

August 9 – BRUT@L: Choose your hero – Ranger, Mage, Warrior, or Amazon – then descend into a dangerous world constructed entirely from ASCII characters. Weapon crafting, potion brewing, and local 2P multiplayer will help you survive the onslaught of enemies in these unique dungeons.

August 16 – Bound: Developed exclusively for PlayStation 4 by Plastic, the team behind innovative titles like Linger In Shadows and Datura, Bound is a 3D platformer that combines a unique visual style with a powerful story and gameplay mechanics infused with modern dance.

Thus far the PLAY 2016 promo has not been announced for Europe, with the terms and conditions stating it is open to “residents of the United States of America, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay”.

Update: It appears that European gamers will get the 20 per cent pre-order discount, but not the PLAY 2016 20 per cent coupon.
