Sony computer entertainment Europe have today revealed their plans for the PlayStation + service for the last time in 2013 and as expected (& Promised), This months update sees the first PS4 + titles. Unfortunately, they also confirmed that Gravity Rush & Uncharted: Golden Abyss will stay in the IGC for the foreseeable future. So lets get down to this months new titles:
The first game hitting the PS+ for PS4 is side scrolling shoot em up; Resogun which is a spiritual successor Super Stardust utilizing unique & distinctive art styles which shows off the power of the PS4. The game will also have multiplayer features which will utilize the PS4’s online features creating a rich and amazing social experience for the player. This game will also take full advantage of the Dualshock 4 enabling you to create your own ships aswell as customization.
The second game this month is the replacement for Driveclub in the form of stylish platformer; Contrast. Taking on the role of Dawn, the imaginary friend of a little girl, Didi, you have the power to shift from the 3D world into a 2D shadowscape. Didi’s family isn’t perfect – her mother is a cabaret singer focused on her career, and her father isn’t around anymore. As her imaginary best friend, you must use your shadow-shifting abilities to solve complex puzzles and help Didi investigate the secrets that lie behind her troubled family.
Also don’t forget everyone that PS+ on PS4 also gives you access to online features such as PSN & Online Multiplayer.
Buckle up – your first PS3 title is Codemasters adrenaline-fuelled racer GRID 2. Whether you’re competing online or solo, GRID 2 offers a fantastic blend of arcade and simulation racing. This is a game that wants you to experience the thrill of street racing combined with terrific handling, gorgeous environments, and a broad selection of event types.
Next up is Drinkbox Studios‘ acclaimed Cross Buy platformer Guacamelee! Inspired by traditional Mexican culture and folklore, the game builds upon a classic open-world Metroidvania structure by adding a strong melee combat component, a dimension switching mechanic, and co-operative same-screen multiplayer.
First up, join Sonic and friends in the highly addictive Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed. Compete across land, water and air in incredible transforming vehicles that change from cars to boats to planes mid-race. Master your driving skills as you drift, barrel roll and boost to overtake your rivals, or use your weapons tactically and unleash your All-Star move to gain the winning advantage.
Last but certainly not least, I’m very excited to announce that you’ll be able to download Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories from 27th November.
