6w ago - Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team is here with this weeks European PSN Game Store updates, which include Dark Souls II, The Walking Dead and more below!

Joining Dark Souls II is the latest episode in The Walking Dead - Season 2. Clementine has a lot on her plate as the past returns to haunt her. It wouldn't be wise to speak much else lest I spoil the episode, so download it and enjoy.

Also out today is Vessel, a 2D puzzle game with unique liquid simulation to play around with. Solve puzzles in a number of ways as you create and interact with Fluros, a liquid machine of sorts our main character Arkwright invented.

This week's update is also joined by vocaloid queen Hatsune Miku on PS Vita, The LEGO Movie The Videogame demo on PS4 and a Call of Duty promotion also running today. Finally, this week's Deal of the Week is Assassin's Creed IV Black Flagon PS3. See below for full details!
