Journey headlines September’s PlayStation Plus games
The award-winning Journey is yours with your PlayStation Plus subscription this September.
Do we really need to say much more than that? Journey is a masterpiece of gaming in design, aesthetics and playability, and that’s arguably not even giving it enough hype. If you’ve never played Journey before and you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, go sit in front of your PS3 or PS4 right now and stare at it until 6 September when you’ll be able to start playing it. Trust us, the wait will be worth it.
If Journey doesn’t do it for you... actually, we’re not sure how that’s feasible, but let’s say you’ve fallen into a bizarre alternate universe where black was white and it was possible... well, then the other key game making its appearance on PlayStation Plus this September is Lords of The Fallen, a brutal PS4 action RPG that should appeal to fans of titles like Dark Souls.
For PS3 owners only, Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands and Datura can be yours this month. The Forgotten Sands bridges the gap between the classic Sands of Time and the slightly less well received Warrior Within games, while Datura is a genuinely (and deliberately) bizarre storyline driven game that leaves you largely grasping to come up with what its plot actually means.
Sidescrolling platformer Badland is also part of this month’s selection, and it’s the one game that’s totally cross-platform, available for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. If you’re a Vita owner, your only other game this month is Amnesia: Memories, a visual novel type title.
All games on PlayStation Plus will arrive on 6 September 2016 for download for a limited time, so don’t delay if any of them appeal to you. Here’s the brief rundown, including the systems they’ll run on.
|Lords of the Fallen||PS4|
|Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands||PS3|
