PS Plus September 2014 Update: FREE Velocity 2X, Sportsfriends For PS4, PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale, Joe Danger, And More! [VIDEO]
Sony has just released the full list of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers for the month of August, and while it's a bit of a letdown from previous months in terms of big popular titles, there's plenty of great freebies coming your way.
As is the standard, subscribers will get two free games per PlayStation system as part of the PS Plus Instant Game Collection. That means that if you own a PS4, PS3 and Vita, you will get six free games a month. Many of these are cross-buy, which means that you get portable versions for a bunch of them as well!
The selection is great as usual and while there's no Tomb Raider or Bioshock AAA title to push this month all of the smaller indie games are well worth your time. The PS4 titles in particular are great- Velocity 2X looks absolutely stunning, like the Metroidvania game we've all been waiting for, and I can promise you that Sportsfriends is an absolute ball with friends.
Here's the full list of what's on offer. The games will be available for download the first Tuesday of the month, September 2.
Velocity 2X (PS4, PS Vita) -
"Use the Quarp Drive teleport to outsmart the evil Vokh in race-tuned space combat, then dock your ship, jump out and continue the fight on foot! Velocity 2X is the visually dazzling action packed sequel to Velocity Ultra, featuring amazing puzzle-platforming action alongside award-winning shooter gameplay!"
Sportsfriends (PS4, PS3) -
"Sportsfriends is a compendium of award-winning local multiplayer games for living rooms, parties, and even backyards. Featuring: retro-styled fighting game BaraBariBall, QWOP-like pole vault dueling game Super Pole Riders, high-velocity sports game Hokra, and face-to-face physical party game Johann Sebastian Joust. All the games are playable with the DualShock 4 wireless controller, while Johann Sebastian Joust can be further enhanced by the PlayStation Move Motion Controller (sold separately)."
PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale (PS3, PS Vita) -
"From Kratos to Sly Cooper, Sweet Tooth to Parappa the Rapper, Sony characters from all over the gaming spectrum are brought together in a fighting adventure that’s both easy to play, and hard to master. Take the battle online for competitive multiplayer action, or go head to head with a group of friends on the couch and prove once and for all who’s really the best!"
"HOARD is an innovative fast-paced arcade action-strategy title from Big Sandwich Games that puts you in control of conquering a medieval kingdom. Your goal is to build a giant pile of gold to sleep on in your lair. YOU ARE THE DRAGON: Scare villages! Burn castles! Collect treasure! Roast pesky knights and thieves! Compete or co-operate with other dragons in epic multiplayer battles!"
Joe Danger -
"Take Joe on a ride from zero to hero in a game that lives up to its big brother with no compromises. Eye-popping super-smooth 60FPS graphics use only the very brightest colours on Vita's lovely screen, and we've revamped the JD control scheme so it plays just as nicely, too, including touch controls for the editor modes!"
"Glowing vectors, explosive particle effects and a pulse-pounding soundtrack are core elements of many modern arcade shooters – a style that Llamasoft defined with its seminal 90s tube shooter. TxK is the spiritual successor to that genre-defining work and brings you 100 levels of engrossing score-chasing gameplay, married to an outstanding soundtrack that will have your head nodding as you blast your way onto the scoreboards."
