Starting tomorrow, June 1, you can hunt monsters in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Game of the Year Edition (also known as the Complete Edition), celebrate Sonic’s birthday with a trio of fantastic titles starring the blue hedgehog, battle friends locally or online in Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown and attempt to Slay the Spire.
Let’s take a closer look at each game.

This story-driven open world role-playing game is set in a visually stunning fantasy universe, full of meaningful choices and impactful consequences.

The Game of the Year Edition includes The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, all 16 DLCs, and two Expansion Packs: Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available on PlayStation Now until September 6, 2022.
Team Sonic Racing
The speeding ‘hog switches sneakers for wheels in this thrilling, competitive style arcade racer. Face-off with friends in intense multiplayer racing, race together across stunning worlds and work together as a team by sharing power-ups and speed boosts. Pick one of the Sonic franchise’s iconic faces, who have been split across three distinct character types, then unlock game changing vehicle customization options to suit your racing style.
Experience the ultimate celebration of past and future in this all-new 2D Sonic adventure running at a crisp 60FPS with stunning HD retro-style graphics.
