This month’s PlayStation Plus lineup also includes:

  • Spelunker HD, PS3
  • Mugen Souls Z, PS3
  • Exiles End, PS Vita
  • Grand Kingdom, PS Vita (Also available on PS4)

Also as stated last month, all PlayStation Plus members can get Starblood Arena as a bonus game through March 6. This arena combat game was built from the ground up to be played in VR with your PS VR headset*. Attack, evade, and move in any direction as you compete against pilots from across the galaxy. You’ll fight for glory, credits, and your life.

Gems of War fans, get your hands on the new PlayStation Plus Starter Pack starting February 13th through March 13th. The pack includes the Nobend Brothers troop. It also comes with 10 rare gem keys and 2,500 souls to level up all your new troops!

(Editors Opinion: I’m pretty satisfied with the selection however with the rumor of Dark Souls 2 coming to this months selection. I’m sure this has left many who put stock into the rumor disappointed. However for the game Rime this is a pretty solid selection. For the fellow trophy hunters this is a pretty doable platinum which shouldn’t take long to complete. Knack however is a title many wanted to arrive on PS Plus, and will provide a good challenge for those who want a good platformer that provides a good challenge.)

Overall what you do you guys think? Are you satisfied with this months selection? What would you like to see coming to the the PS Plus Free Games of the month. For news like this and more make sure to check back with us here at What’s Up PlayStation.

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

With PSX and The Game Awards fast approaching, we have a lot to look forward to as far a preview of games we will soon be able to get our hands on in 2018! With that being said. It seems that PlayStation is looking to have something for everyone this December with the PlayStation Plus Free games of the month. So without further ado here’s what we’re able to get our hands on this December in the trailer below:

The Line Up details are as followed:

  • Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition (PS4)
  • Kung Fu Panda Showdown of Legendary Legends (PS4)
  • Syberia Collection PS3
  • Xblaze Lost: Memories, PS3
  • Forma.8, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
  • Wanted Corp, PS Vita

Also as reported on the PS Blog Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is still available a free PSVR title!

As a reminder, we are giving PlayStation Plus members a bonus PlayStation VR game – Until Dawn: Rush of Blood. It’s available now through January 2 for PlayStation Plus members in U.S., Canada, and Latin America. This survival horror arcade shooter will be sure to give you a scare as you blast your way through hordes of enemies. Download it now (if you haven’t already) and buckle up for the most disturbing roller coaster ride you’ll ever take.

Monster Hunter: World is rapidly approaching its release, but you can get a taste of the hunt from December 9 to December 12 exclusively as a PlayStation Plus member. In this beta, you’ll be tasked with hunting a Great Jagras and an Anjanath in the Ancient Forest, as well as a Barroth in the Wildspire Waste. While these are your main quest targets, be on the lookout for other deadly monsters roaming each ecosystem.

Lastly, for a limited time, PlayStation Plus members can grab the Smite PlayStation Plus Pack for free! The bundle includes 31 Skins, 20 Gods and Voice Packs, plus the Khepri Announcer Pack. The bundle is available from December 12 to January 9.

(Editors Opinion: I’m pretty satisfised with Darksiders 2 it’s said to be a good game although I’ve purchased this title prior to it’s PS Plus offering it’s definitely been a game on my “To do” list in regards to game experiences. However with the likes of Kung Fu Panda I personally can’t see myself playing this title unless it has an easy platinum to receive to add to my platinum trophy hunting when i can’t figure out what I want to play. The PS3 on the other hand has a pretty solid line up as I’ve long wanted to play the Xblaze series but never got around to playing them on PS3 during my time of being primarily on the system. The PS Vita titles are somewhat interesting. I’m not too personally excited for the Forma.8 title but wanted corp which is a PS3 and PC title is somewhat of a good drop for passing the time by on the go for a top down shooter.)

But enough of my thoughts what do you think of this month’s PS Plus free game selection? Do you think last months offering a better or worse. Comment below and let us know. For news like this and more keep us bookmarked and check back with us here at What’s Up PlayStation.

Check out the Free PlayStation Plus Games and Deals arriving in November 2017

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

It’s about that time of the month, Where we are either excited or disappointed with the PS Plus games selection! In the month of November which is mostly known for titles such as Call of Duty and Black Friday Deals. We can usually expect one or the other to excite us either the PS Plus games or the Black Friday deals to follow. With that being said here’s a roll of the dice and a run down of Novembers upcoming freebie selection:

This month’s PlayStation Plus lineup includes:

  • Worms Battleground
  • Until Dawn Rush of Blood (Bonus PSVR title)
  • Bound
  • R-Type Dimensions, PS3
  • Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic, PS3
  • Dungeon Punks, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
  • Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse (Episodes 1 & 2), PS Vita

Lastly, we have hundreds of games on sale right now at PlayStation Store — and PS Plus members get double the discount. The three we are most excited for are Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix (20%; 40% off for PS Plus members), Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 (15%; 30% off for PS Plus members), and Horizon Zero Dawn (22%; 44% off for PS Plus members). Stock up on some new games for the holidays, but grab ’em before the sale ends on November 7 at 8AM Pacific

Here’s a little info about the upcoming games:

Bound: This platformer transports you into a beautiful, fantastical world that exists in the mind of a woman revisiting the memories of her childhood. Bound combines a unique visual style with a powerful story and gameplay mechanics infused with modern dance. As the game progresses, the introspective story unfolds through powerful metaphor and imagery.

Worms Battlegrounds: This title brings friends and family together in the noble pursuit of mayhem! Join multiplayer matches where each turn is full of questionable decisions, high-powered weaponry, and exploding sheep.

That’s just a minor rundown of the games for November 2017.

(Editors Opinion: Welp as far as my taste are concerned this isn’t really my ideal selection to take wind out of the competition of the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One X release. However I feel that with the games like Call of Duty WWII and Star Wars: Battlefront II being at the forefront for PlayStation 4, alongside Horizon Zero Dawn: Frozen Wilds DLC arriving this month. It softens the blow of disappointment. However in regards to my personal taste this doesn’t relate to my gaming tastes. However I free games are free and with my extensive backlog of games this is gives me more reason to continue to chug away at my forever extensive backlog. But that’s just my perspective.)

But enough of my thoughts what do you think of this month’s PS Plus free game selection? Do you think last months offering a better or worse. Comment below and let us know. For news like this and more keep us bookmarked and check back with us here at What’s Up PlayStation.
