PlayStation Plus February 2015
The PlayStation Plus update is mere days away, and players are eagerly awaiting the next six games to join their backlogs! So let’s take a look at what’s on offer for subscribers in February!
The first offering for PlayStation 4 this month comes from Supergiant Games, creators of Bastion. Transistor is a crictically acclaimed action role-playing game set in a city called Cloudbank. You play as a Red, a woman who’s voice along with the conciousness of the man who saved her, is absorbed by a great sword known as the Transistor. With high rankings and reviews across the board, Transistor is definitely a game to check out this month.
Apotheon is a new release making its debut straight onto PlayStation Plus. It’s a 2D platformer inspired by the art of Ancient Grecian pottery (and any fan of Disney’s Hercules will be familiar with the style). After usurping her husband Zeus, Hera takes control of Mount Olympus and orders a mass murder of all mortals. Humanity’s only hope is the champion you play as, who battles his way through the gods to save the mortal race and claim their powers as his own.
Still catering to PlayStation 3, Sony have given subscribers a title from a much loved franchise this month with Yakuza 4. Set in a seedy district of Tokyo, you can play as 4 different characters to take in all the sordid missions and activities the city has to offer, from karaoke to ‘hostess parlours’. The original protagonist from the previous games is joined by a loan shark, a police detective and an escaped convict to give you a whole host of viewpoints of the city.
The other PlayStation 3 offering this month is Thief. Which follows the story of Garrett, a stealthy master-thief, who lives in a destitute city. He steals trinkets and the occassional bit of important loot on his way to take down the wealthy who have left the poor of The City to die in a mysterious plague called Gloom.
Rogue Legacy is an indie platform game from Cellar Door Games. The player must explore a dungeon, with the aim of defeating four bosses of the different elements. Each time the player dies they have to choose a descendant with their own new and unique abilities to carry on the quest. Rogue Legacy will be available to subscribers across all three PlayStation platforms.
Kick & Fennick
Kick & Fennick is the second game this month to be making it’s debut on PlayStation Plus. The game is about a boy named Kick, who is rescued by a robot named Fennick. The two, (along with Kick’s big gun!) must travel to the Core Tower to find Fennick a replacement battery.
