“We’re still working out all the details regarding if and how Ultimate Evil Edition will be supported post-launch,” said Blizzard Entertainment’s community manager, “(For example,) will we patch the game after it ships? If yes, should we only patch to fix bugs and address critical game issues, or should we patch in new content as well? At what frequency should we patch?”

PlayStation 4 Games releasing in August
The Swapper was initially scheduled for a June 25 release, but unfortunately it has been delayed to 5th of August 2014. The developer, Curve Studio cited the reason for this delay as, they need more time to polish their development on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of The Swapper.
“The Swapper is our first indie title to really push the limits of the PlayStation 3 and Vita. We’ve been able to really throw the power of the PS4 at the game, but we also want to ensure that when the game comes out, it looks great and runs well at 30 fps on hardware that, in the case of the PlayStation 3, is over seven years old.” said Curve Digital’s Managing Director Jason Perkins.
This puzzle-platformer game is created using a unique claymation art style in which a player is stranded on a damaged space station and has to find ways to get back to where he belongs.

The whole game is divided in two worlds, Lamp Lighting and Sponge Land. The players will have different experiences based on the world in which they are playing Hohokum.
