PS Plus July 2014 Update: FREE 'Strider' and 'TowerFall Ascension' For PS4, 'Dead Space 3', 'Muramasa Rebirth ', More All Hitting Tuesday! [VIDEO]
Another month, another great selection of titles for PlayStation Plus subscribers! This month Sony is implementing all of the changes they previously announced for their Instant Game Collection- each PlayStation console (PS4, PS3, Vita) will get two free titles a month, and they will get them all at once on the first Tuesday. In other words, the already-great service is about to get that much better.
This means that this upcoming Tuesday, July 1 you'll be able to download all six games at once! No more waiting week to week to see what they will drop, now you'll be getting everything day one. The catch is that they'll only be available for that particular month so if you don't snap them up by the end of July they'll be gone.
Regardless of that, the selection of free titles is absolutely astounding, as usual. This month there's not a single clunker in the bunch. Check out what they have to offer and note that Doki-Doki Universe is cross-buy, so it will be playable on all three systems even if you don't have a VIta!
TowerFall Ascension -
"TowerFall Ascension is the definitive version of the hit archery combat game. Inspired by classics from the golden age of couch multiplayer, it’s a local party game centering around hilarious, intense versus matches. The core mechanics are simple and accessible, but hard to master and combat is fierce. Loot treasure chests for game-changing power-ups, master the art of catching arrows out of the air, or descend on your foes and stomp them into submission. TowerFall is best played competitively with friends, cross-legged on the floor within punching distance of each other."
"Strider returns in a brand new adventure, complete with incredible side-scrolling action, and lightning fast combat all in a massive interconnected world! Download the full game now and become the original assassin!"
Dead Space 3 -
"Dead Space 3 brings Isaac Clarke and merciless soldier John Carver on a journey across space to discover the source of the Necromorph outbreak. Crash-landed on the frozen planet of Tau Volantis, Isaac must comb the harsh environment for raw materials and scavenged parts. He will then put his engineering skills to the ultimate test to create and customize weapons and survival tools. Play together with a friend or alone as Isaac Clarke using the seamless new drop in, drop out co-op functionality. Each mode offers unique story elements and gameplay."
"Vessel is built on an optimized liquid simulation featuring flowing water, scalding lava and steam, reactant chemicals, glowing goo, the mysterious ‘protoplasm’, and more. Each liquid has unique properties and mixes with other liquids for dramatic effects."
