Winter is still in full swing with the cold weather and winter doldrums, but Sony already has spring on its mine with the return of its annual Spring Fever sale highlighting eight weeks of brand new games coming as the weather warms up.

Sony announced that the Spring Fever promotion will return once again for 2015 highlighting several upcoming new digital releases across PS4, PS3, and PS Vita, with this year’s sale to expand to eight weeks of discounts instead of the annual four discounts.

In this year’s batch of discounts, several highly-anticipated new releases will make their way to PSN alongside the release of several older titles that will debut on PS4 for the first time, such as the hotly-anticipated Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number alongside the PS4 debut of Bastion. During the week of launch, each new highlighted title will receive a 10% discount for members of PlayStation Plus, allowing you to nab up the new releases at a slightly lower price.

In addition to the highlighted new releases each week, Sony will also feature a selection of sales and discounts on other games and movies from specific series, such as Saint’s RowGod of WarGrand Theft Auto, so if you find yourself low on games to play during the beginning of spring, PSN might just be your answer.
