    Frontier Developments announced Elite Dangerous is coming to the PlayStation 4 in Q2 2017.

    "Elite Dangerous has been a wonderful project to be involved with, made by a great team here at Frontier," said David Braben, Founder and CEO of Frontier Developments. "Its roots go all the way back to my first commercial game, Elite, first released in 1984 with Ian Bell, while we were both at university. Two sequels followed. Over thirty years later, Elite Dangerous is a huge step forwards from those games, but the principles are the same — do what you like and live life in an immense galaxy — and today you can play with (Or against!) friends and our amazing community as you travel the galaxy alone, together in a “wing,” or even fly aboard the same ship.


    "It’s great to come to PlayStation. When Elite Dangerous arrives on PS4 next year, we’re bringing the full game with everything in our Horizons season of expansions included, so not only can you fly your ship, but you can carry an SRV (Surface Recon Vehicle) in your hold, and charge around the surfaces of planets and moons at up to 100mph, finding materials, attacking bases, or seeking out hidden secrets with your friends.

    "When you progress far enough into the game to buy one of the larger ships, you might choose to carry a ship-launched fighter to help defend yourself; you can employ crew or even allow other players to help you pilot your larger ship. Craft special weapons with the Engineers, collaborate with the community, and engage in massive-scale community goals. Elite Dangerous is a game you’ll play your way."

    Elite Dangerous is currently available for the Xbox One and Windows PC.

    Sony Interactive Entertainment and ConcernedApe announced the country-life RPG, Stardew Valley, is coming to the PlayStation 4 on December 13 in North America and December 14 in Europe, and to the Xbox One worldwide on December 14.

    "In Stardew Valley, you’ll inherit your grandfather’s old farm and move away from the city to start a new life on your own," ConcernedApe's Eric Barone told the PlayStation Blog. "Over time, you’ll gain new skills and learn to live off the land. You’ll make friends with the locals, learn their stories, and maybe even start a family with one of the 12 bachelors or bachelorettes. Stardew Valley gives you plenty of freedom to create the homestead of your dreams!

    "When I began working on Stardew Valley about five years ago, I had very little game development experience. As time went on, my skills improved and I ended up re-doing nearly everything in the game several times. It was important to me to not only create the game I had been dreaming about, but also to make a great first impression. As a one-man team, I felt personally responsible for every aspect of the game, so I spent a lot of time fussing over everything, as well as releasing numerous patches and content updates after the initial launch. I hope that my attention to detail shines through in the final product."
