Earlier this year we spoke with PlayStation Home Director Jack Buser to find out what we could expect with the relaunch of PlayStation Home. That relaunch is set for tomorrow, and now we have details on the games you'll find in Home.

In the new genre-based districts you can expect to see new exclusive games:

  • Bootleggers '29 is a new free first-person shooter that pits cops against criminals in a Prohibition-era game of Capture the Cask. 
  • RC Rally lets you build your own car and race it on stunt tracks.
  • Cogs is a Steampunk puzzle game in 3D
  • PlayStation Home Sports Trivia (Samit!) has over 10,000 questions to...tackle.

There's also new non-game features coming, like the PlayStation Home Theater, which will air episodes of Pulse and Qore as well as trailers and interviews from the PlayStation Blog. The PlayStaton Home Mall has also been redesigned.

"This is a major milestone for PlayStation Network, and we are thrilled to bring a new core experience to PlayStation Home where games are front and center," said Buser. "Home’s community is made up of some of the hardest-core gamers on PS3, and we’ve listened to all of the feedback since Home launched in 2008, finally transforming Home itself into a game.  This redesign marks a new beginning for PlayStation Home, and players can expect much more to come."

  • Bootleggers ’29: Set in the seedy underbelly of the Roaring Twenties, this PlayStation Home exclusive first-person shooter found in the Action District pits cops vs. criminals in a Prohibition-era game of Capture the Cask. Boasting real-time multiplayer action, a variety of vintage weapons and unlockable rewards, and the unique ability to play as your PlayStation Home avatar, Bootleggers ’29 is a 100% free-to-play game that introduces a classic narrative to the modern shooter genre. 

 

  • PlayStation Home Hold ‘Em: A series of backroom poker tables hosted in the brand new Sportswalk district, PlayStation Home Hold ‘Em squares players off in a no-holds-barred, winner-take-all battle of the bluffs. Only the best of the best will progress to the high stakes tables and collect all the prizes in this free version of the wildly-popular Texas Hold ‘Em card game.

 

  • PlayStation Home Sports Trivia: Test your sports expertise against the PlayStation Home community and unlock a series of themed rewards in this massive sports trivia game, found in the Sportswalk. Packed with over 10,000 trivia questions, this game will challenge the memories of even the most die-hard sports fans.

 

  • RC Rally: Build and customize your own remote controlled car and race against friends over multiple courses, performing stunts and tricks and unlocking numerous upgrades along the way.  This fast-paced PlayStation Home original game can be found in the new Pier Park.

 

  • Cogs: A 3D version of Lazy 8 Studios award-winning Steampunk puzzle game, Cogs can be found front-and-center in PlayStation Home’s new Hub. Build a variety of machines from sliding tiles and unlock exclusive PlayStation Home rewards in this highly-addictive puzzler.

 

  • PlayStation Home Theater: The PlayStation Home Theater sports an ultra-modern architectural design and hosts a wide range of videos programmed specifically for PlayStation gamers, including episodes of Pulse and Qore, trailers and interviews from the PlayStation Blog, and exclusive user-generated videos in the popular Community Theater.

 

  • PlayStation Home Mall: The PlayStation Home Mall is loaded with thousands of pieces of content from some of the most popular game and entertainment IPs in the world. Shop for PlayStation Home games, extravagant personal spaces, costumes, clothing items and other avatar enhancements, and tons more in the redesigned Mall.
