We’ve got a double-header for ya today — first up, we’ll reveal the Players’ Choice winner for March 2018. Scroll a bit further down and you’ll see our top picks. PlayStation’s editorial team weighed in on our top games of 2018 so far (January 1 to March 31, specifically).

Fortnite Q&A: PlayStation.Blog Interviews Epic Games

Epic Games has been on top of the world since its smash-hit Battle Royale mode launched in Fortnite, heading up Twitch viewership charts and crossing over into mainstream conversation with numerous celebrities name-checking it and streaming it alongside the game’s most popular personalities.

I’ve had a great time being carried to racking up Victory Royales with my PSN pals and I think it’s safe to say I’ve boarded the Fortnite hype train. Naturally, I wanted to learn more about how Epic crafted what may currently be the most talked-about game in the world.

PlayStation Store: March’s Top Downloads

Three huge new releases, three top spots on the PS4 chart. Ubisoft’s latest open-world chaos simulator Far Cry 5 reigned supreme in PS4 download numbers last month, followed by San Diego Studio’s newest entry in the fabled MLB The Show series. Finally, Hazelight’s bold new co-op prison break adventure A Way Out rounded out the top three.

Shout out to my new best friend Quill, whose itty-bitty adventure Moss sits atop the PlayStation VR chart for March. Persona 4 Golden is numero uno for PS Vita, and — surprise! — Fortnite Battle Royale was the most popular free-to-play title for the month.

Players’ Choice: Vote for March 2018’s Best New Game

March was a good month for video games, huh? Ambitious co-op adventure A Way Out won many hearts and minds, freewheeling shooter Far Cry 5 somehow topped the madness of prior installments, baseball sim MLB The Show 18 continued to define the genre, and the long-awaited JRPG sequel Ni no Kuni II dazzled. All in all, March’s lineup had something for just about every type of gamer — we even got an excellent new rhythm / music game in DJMax Respect!

But only one of these titles can claim the Players’ Choice crown. We’ve compiled quite the list of nominees, but the final decision lies with you.

PlayStation Store: February’s Top Downloads

The numbers are in for February 2018! Capcom’s excellent (and record-breaking) Monster Hunter: World leads the charge in February’s PS4 chart, followed by NBA Live 18: The One Edition and Bluepoint’s gargantuan rework of Shadow of the Colossus.

Superhot and Job Simulator sit pretty at the top of the PlayStation VR list, Fortnite and Brawlhalla dominate the free-to-play rankings, and the new Secret of Mana remake debuts at #1 for PS Vita.

Moss: A Squeak Peek at Polyarc’s Adorable PS VR Adventure

Since its first reveal at E3 2017, I’ve been completely enamored with Moss. Polyarc’s debut PS VR adventure casts you as Quill, an adorable (and exquisitely animated) miniature heroine in a lush, foreboding fantasy world.

I had the chance to play through a new area of Moss recently, and I’d like to share it with you in our newest episode of PlayStation Underground. Watch the video above, then head over to PlayStation Store to preorder Polyarc’s debut title ahead of its upcoming launch.

Play This Next: What Remains of Edith Finch

Hi, everyone! We’re kicking off a new program in collaboration with PlayStation Store, where once in a while we’ll shine our editorial spotlight on a game we feel deserves more attention. We’re calling it Play This Next.

So, here we are with the first edition of PTN! I’m thrilled not only that I get to kick things off, but that I get to do so with one of the most moving experiences I had last year. If you enjoy narrative-driven gaming experiences, I implore you to play What Remains of Edith Finch!
