The PlayStation Blog has revealed the free game offerings for PlayStation Plus subscribers this month. As usual, smaller profile and indie games abound, but this month does have a few larger offerings.
For PS4 owners, Sony is offering Dust: An Elysian Tail, a 2D sidecroller that follows the titular character as he tries to regain his memories. The game features a blend of RPG and platforming elements, and has received relatively positive reviews, so anyone who hasn’t caught the game on another console should pick it up.
Sony is also offering the PS4 port of the well known Spelunky. The game tasks you with venturing deeper and deeper into a cave’s procedurally generate levels. The game is difficult, but fair, so you always know exactly what you did wrong, and it has immense replay value. The PS Vita version game took me weeks to finally beat, and I still find myself going back to it time and again.
The final PS4 offering for the month is DRIVECLUB: PlayStation Plus Edition. This is more a demo than a free game, but it features ten cars and eleven tracks from the upcoming DRIVECLUB. If you enjoy the PS Plus demo, you can upgrade to the full version of the game at a discounted price.
Pix the Cat is a cross-buy PS4 and PS Vita arcade game where you are tasked with rescuing ducklings from the “infamous” Grid of Infinity. The game looks intense, so I’m looking forward to getting my hands on it.
The second PS Vita offering is also a cross-buy title. This time with the PS3. Rainbow Moon is a turn based RPG with emphasis on exploration and character development. The game claims to offer more than forty hours of playtime, so RPG fans should appreciate this one.
This month’s PlayStation 3 offerings are Dungeons and Dragons: Chronicles of Mystrara, a four player co-op game that features drop-in/drop-out online multiplayer, and Batman: Arkham Asylum, which should be a priority play for anyone who hasn’t had a chance to get to it yet.
As always, the games from last month will be rotating out of PlayStation Plus, so be sure to pick up September’s games: Velocity 2x, Sportsfriends, PlayStation Battle Royale, Hoard, TxK, and Joe Danger VITA before they’re gone.
Overall, I’d say that this month’s offerings are fairly strong and should provide at least one game for players of all tastes. Besides, if you already have PS+, there’s no reason not to grab all of them.
