Anyone who pays his PlayStation plus fees does get a little curious around this time of the month. This is the time when the next list of free games available to them are announced. So time to get your money’s worth, for the month of September as games like Velocity 2x, PlayStation All Stars get ready to hit the Free PlayStation rack.
First up the current gen console. There is Velocity 2x, the sequel to the supremely popular Velocity launched on the PS3 and Vita. Velocity 2X will become a plus title on its launch, just like Resogun was shipped free with the PS4 earlier. The original Velocity game was touted for its teleportation mechanics, and the sequel will expand on that and also add more gameplay elements. The game promises to run 60 FPS and 1080 p, and was one of the top 10 exclusives to be released on the PS4 in 2014, so I am guessing this would be a great ride.
The 2nd game that will be available for free download on the PS4 will be Sports Friend. Sports Friends is a suite of 4 sport themed games, which are best played with local co-op players.
On the PS3 side of things, things look a lot more polished. There is PlayStation All Stars, the distant cousin of Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Brawl. If you wanna find out who will win in a fight out between Big Daddy (Bio Shock) and Cole (inFamous) then this is the game you want. And no matter what people say on how blatantly its copied, its a great game nevertheless.
Horde is the other game that will be available for download on the PS3 in September. Horde allows you play the dragon, instead of a dragon slayer, and puts your destruction spreading, loot hoarding and fear spreading skills to test.
When Joe Danger launches for the Vita in September, it will also be as a free addition to the PS Plus lineup. Joining it will be TxK, a deceptively challenging classic shooter that’s been given the new gen makeover treatment.
All the games will be available for download from the first Tuesday of September, and will be available until the next batch of free games arrive. Remember the same Plus membership carries across all 3 devices so, you potentially have 6 free games, if you have all 3 devices.
Tell us what you think of this month’s line up and what games would you like to see in the coming months.
