PS Plus October 2014 Update: DriveClub, Spelunky, Dust For PS4, Batman: Arkham City, Rainbow Moon And More For PS3/Vita! [VIDEO]
Sony has just released the full list of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers for the month of October, which includes the usual two free titles per system. This month includes a bonus third game for PS4 owners, however, as DriveClub is finally coming!
If you'll remember, DriveClub was originally suposed to be a free title for PS Plus subscribers when the PS4 launched. Instead, we got Resogun and Contrast- not too bad games by any guage (Resogun in particular has been consistently entertinaing) but not the big AAA game players expected.
Now they'll get it along with two more titles! PS3 owners will actually also get four free games this month, as two of the titles offered this month cross-buy, and include console versions. Spelunky is cross-buy against all three!
Here's the full list-
Dust: An Elysian Tail-
"Immerse yourself in a gorgeous hand-painted world on a search for your true identity. As the mysterious warrior, Dust, your action-packed journey will take you from peaceful glades to snowy mountaintops and beyond. At your disposal is the mythical Blade of Ahrah, capable of turning its wielder it into an unstoppable force of nature, and the blade’s diminutive guardian, Fidget."
Spelunky is one of the greatest games of recent years. That ain't hyperbole- it's a randomly generated platformer that's infinitely replayable, the kind of game you'll have to learn how to play if you want to finish. Utterly addicting and available on all three systems via cross-buy!
DriveClub PlayStation Plus Edition-
"DRIVE TOGETHER, WIN TOGETHER. Fuel the thrill of high-octane racing by downloading DRIVECLUB PlayStation Plus Edition. Take a test drive of the world’s most social racer: Features unrestricted access both offline and online to the 11 tracks of India & 10 cars for your garage."
Batman: Arkham Asylum-
It's a bit strange to see this hitting now, since Batman: Arkam City was offered up as a free PS Plus title earlier in April. But we'll take it! As good as Arkham City was, it couldn't hope to compete against Arkham Asylum, which still stands strong as the best Batman game ver made
Dungeons and Dragons Mystara-
"Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara combines two timeless D&D arcade classics -Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystara- into one definitive package. Battle through a rich fantasy universe with a host of new features, including HD visuals, drop-in/drop-out 4 player online co-op, customizable House Rules, leaderboards, and a trove of extras."
Pix the Cat-
"PIX the CAT is an intense arcade game designed to boost your heart-rate! Rescue forsaken ducklings from the nested levels of the infamous GRID of INFINITY. Perfect your skills to SPEED and COMBO UP until you reach the explosive FEVER TIME!"
Don't let the name put you off. Rainbow Moon is a fairly hardcore tacticall RPG, one that should be considerd among the Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogres of the world. It's a wonderful and insanely lengthy game- expect to lose dozens of hours to this.
