August 18, 2011 Written by Cameron Teague

Sony Online Entertainment has used gamescom to announce release dates for three of their upcoming PlayStation Network games. PAYDAY: The Heist, Sideway: New York and Rochard will all be releasing early this fall for download and offer a wide variety of gameplay from Robert DeNiro type robberies to adventures with graffiti. Check out the release dates below, along with details on each title.

Title: Rochard
Release Date: 9/27
Price: $9.99

Rochard has gamers playing as a space miner named John Rochard who uses wits and tools to fight off the space pirates. Missing miners and an ancient artifact cause John to use his tools and gravity to fight back.

Title: PAYDAY: The Heist
Release Date: 10/4
Price: $19.99

PAYDAY: The Heist is a game that many are calling “Left 4 Dead” with banks, and that description really fits. Grab a bunch of your friends and take down banks, hijack armored cars, and break into safe houses in this action packed game. If you feel inclined, you can take part in the PSN PLAY Program that is currently going on, where, when you buy 4 games, you get PAYDAY for free. DLC expansions for this game will also be released later this year.

Title: Sideway: New York
Release Date: 10/11
Price: $9.99

Sideway: New York is a 2D platformer that is set in a 3D world, where players control a graffiti artist named Nox. Use not only drainpipes and windows ledges to navigate through the backstreets, but also graffiti tags. Tag your way through the levels while listening to an underground hip-hop inspired soundtrack, all while trying to defeat your nemesis Spray.

Now gamers have three very solid and different looking games to look forward to in the coming months. Will you be picking up any of these titles when they release?
