If there is a (sort of) free game version of Russian Roulette, PS Plus is it. Every month, we wait to see if the games we have neglected to buy wind up being free. Sometimes, we even get something brand new that blows us away, or we disgustedly pass on the month entirely. Put one in the chamber, give it a spin, and get ready to pull that trigger. It’s time to see what kind of month it is.
September is a little different than previous months. Destiny 2 is the first PS4 game coming, and you can download it right now. It will be the vanilla version of Destiny 2, and I am not sure what that really means anymore. The DLC is not included and will need to be purchased separately. Beyond that, all I can assume is that you will be able to enjoy the single player campaign, but that’s enough for me.
If you want some more God of War without all the restraint and hours of anger management therapy, God of War III Remastered is the second game coming to the PS4 next week. After completing his arc of total revenge, this is the game that shows you why Kratos had to move away from home.
The rest of the titles are playable on the PS3 or PS Vita, but they all have a cross-buy version on the PS4. Since the PS4 is nearing the end of its lifespan, that’s a nice touch that I would like to see in future PS Plus games. I would also like to see Sony give us some of the obscure Japanese titles on PS Vita that never seem to go on sale, but I don’t want to be too greedy. Here’s a gold star for you, PlayStation.
- Another World – 20th Anniversary Edition, PS3 (Cross Buy with PS4 & Vita)
- QUBE Director’s Cut, PS3 (Cross Buy with PS4)
- Sparkle 2, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS3 & PS4)
- Foul Play, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
If you have not already downloaded them, don’t forget to grab Here They Lie for the PSVR and Knowledge is Power. Here They Lie will scare you with first-person horror. Knowledge is Power is a trivia party game that will scare you by revealing how little you know in relation to how much student debt you acquired. Maybe they are both horror games in a way.
Is this a good month or did you find the one chamber that wasn’t empty? Let us know your thoughts on September’s PS Plus games in the comments.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
