August looks like another busy month so we take a look at what’s hitting the PlayStation Store next week.
Developed exclusively for PS4 by Plastic, the team behind innovative titles like Linger In Shadows and Datura, Bound is an entrancing 3D platformer where you guide an elegant character using the beauty of balletic movement. Bound transports you into a beautiful, fantastical world that exists in the mind of a woman revisiting the memories of her childhood. Bound to be good? We think so. Check it out below.
The game is PlayStation VR compatible and launches with a PS Plus discount. You can pre-order Bound now for £12.79/$15.99.
Racing fans can rejoice this month as we have three totally different racing experiences heading our way. Absolute Drift: Zen Edition and the highly realistic driving experience Assetto Corsa both look eye catching. If you’re an F1 fan then F1 2016 looks to offer a huge race. The game boasts the most in-depth Career mode ever seen in the franchise which allows players to create their own legend over the course of ten seasons. With multiplayer support for up to 22 drivers, F1 2016 allows players to form a full grid of human players across the 21 circuits featured in the 2016 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, including the tight Baku street circuit, the latest addition to the calendar. In single player, gamers are able to create their own legend in the expansive Career Mode which stretches for up to ten seasons and includes drama both on and off the track.
F1 2016 will be available from 19th August on PS4.
The classic card game Uno comes to PS4. In addition to the traditional matching game, Uno includes online functionality that allows players to drop in and out of games, as well as communicate via voice and video chat. Weekly and global online leaderboards will also be available for those of you looking to see how you stack up against other Uno players. And if you’re completely unfamiliar with Uno, (like me) don’t worry. This version of the game has tutorials, in-game tips, and an overview of the rules to get you up to speed quickly. Perfect!

You’ll be able to drift against ghosts of the top players, and watch replays of your event runs to learn how to perfect your skills for next time.
