PS Plus: 'Trine 2' & 'PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate' Free For PS4 This Week, 'NBA 2K14' For PS3, 'Rainbow Moon' Sale [VIDEO]
As revealed last week, Sony is changing up how their PS Plus Instant Game Collection works in the future, and it's all for the better. They have now guaranteed two free titles for the PS3, PS Vita, and PS4, each, six titles a month. It definitely encourages people to own multiple PlayStation systems and gives PS4 owners even more to look forward to- it used to be they only received one free game a month. They're going to kick June off with both of them- hope you have friends with PS4s, because both titles offer online multiplayer!
Here are the selections hitting on Tuesday June 3.
Trine 2: Complete Story (PS4):
"Trine 2: Complete Story is a beautiful, award-winning sidescrolling game of action, puzzles and platforming. Play as the three Heroes – Amadeus the Wizard, Pontius the Knight, and Zoya the Thief – and join their adventure through dangers untold in a fantastical fairytale world, including physics-based puzzles using fire, water, gravity and magic wicked goblins and their evil plan and a magical environment full of wonder."
PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate (PS4):
"PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is a twin-stick shooter with equal elements of action, exploration and puzzle solving. Saving scientists and uncovering the mysteries of an ill-fated research trip requires you to study and manipulate your environment. Blast and dig through rock and ice, unleashing floods of water, lava, gas, magnetic oil and even deadly stomach acid, all powered by an advanced fluid mechanics simulation."
NBA 2K14 (PS3):
"NBA 2K13 was a monstrous release for the world’s #1 NBA video game franchise, with more than 38 Sports Game of the Year and ‘Best Of’ mentions. NBA 2K14 will raise the bar yet again, providing the best basketball gaming experience for legions of sports fans and gamers around the world."
Along with these free titles they have announced a crazy sale for Rainbow Moon. Now, don't get turned off by the name of this one or get embarassed when your wife asks you what game you're playing, as may have happened to a certain author- it's actually a pretty amazing turn-based strategy rpg. Rainbow Moon will only be $4.89 on both PS3 and PS Vita for PS Plus subscribers. Note that while it supports cross-save it doesn't support cross-buy, so you'd have to buy both copies to carry your save across. The premium content in the game is also on sale for pennies, although you really don't need them to play the game. Check out the full list at the PlayStation blog here.
In July things get even more exciting for PS Plus subscribers as we get every single title at once on the first Tuesday of the month! Until then, stay tuned for next Tueday, when more free titles are announced.
