PlayStation Plus September 2014
The PlayStation Plus September 2014 update is imminent, and the Instant Game Collection grows larger and larger… So what do you get your mitts on in September, Consumers?
Our first new game is for PS4, in the shape of highly addictive arcade shoot ‘em up sequel Velocity 2X.
In this sequel to the very highly-regarded ‘Velocity’, you will infiltrate space stations, moon bases and alien planets to disrupt the crushing tyranny imposed by the evil Vokh Empire. You can engage the Quarp Drive teleport to outsmart the enemy in race-tuned space combat, then dock your ship, jump out and run around on foot to infiltrate enemy bases before jumping back into the Quarp Jet to continue your mission through space!
If this is all just a little bit too futuristic for you – how about some friendly sporting competition, right in your living room? With Sportsfriends – a tightly-knit compendium of local multiplayer games – that’s exactly what you get!
Whether you’re into retro-style fighting games or fancy some pole vault duelling there is definitely something to keep everyone entertained in this incredible social experience. Best of all, you can pick this up on both PS3 and PS4, so grab your friends and challenge them to some hilarious sporting action!
On PlayStation 3 in September, we have Sony’s superstar-laden fighting extravaganza PlayStation Allstars Battle Royale! Featuring the characters that made PlayStation a household name in an explosive showdown, featuring local multiplayer so that you can destroy your friends. As an added bonus, you’ll also get the PS Vita version for battling on the move!
We’re not done yet, Consumers! Also on PS3 we have village-burning, princess-capturing, arcade strategy hybrid Hoard. Together with three other friends in co-op mode and competitive multiplayer, you can begin your quest to gather the most gold whilst obtaining over 100 badges in four game modes across 35 levels!
Last but not least is the PlayStation Vita. New in September, is Llamasoft’s highly addictive psychedelic tube shooter TxK. The spiritual successor to retro classic Tempest, TxK brings you 100 levels of score-chasing gameplay married to an outstanding soundtrack that will have your head nodding as you blast your way onto the leaderboards.
As if that wasn’t enough, Vita owners get to experience one of my favourite bitesize games of all time – with Joe Danger! Equally rewarding as it is frustrating, Joe Danger sees you on a ride from zero to hero in a game that lives up to its PS3 big brother with no compromises and added touch controls for the level editor, and is complete with a multiplayer mode that’s so much fun you wouldn’t believe it… Utterly addictive and as much fun as you could ever hope to have – and best of all, it’s free for all subscribers!
