September’s PlayStation Plus games will make you infamous
Take back Seattle with the aid of PS Plus.
After blowing the bejesus out of everything in sight with August's PlayStation Plus headliner Just Cause 3, it's time to don the mantle of a superhero with September's frontrunner inFAMOUS: Second Son.
Set in a near-future Seattle overrun by the oppressive D.U.P, the third entry in the inFAMOUS series follows the wise-cracking Delsin Rowe as he discovers his superpowers and unleashes them upon his city's oppressors. With the ability to turn into smoke, shoot neon fireballs and sunder the ground like a sledgehammer, inFAMOUS: Second Son is a brilliant title worth taking for a spin.
Also on the cards for September is the painterly RPG Child of Light. With its dialogue taking the form of poetry and its story exploring the troubled relationship between father and daughter, the charming PS4 game offers a refreshing counterpoint to the explosive action of inFAMOUS.
PSVR owners are in for a treat next month, too, with RIGS: Mechanised Combat League going free as part of the PS+ line-up. The multiplayer mech game is one of the standout titles for PlayStation VR, and making it free should help to fill out its online lobbies.
The full roster for September is listed below. As usual, PS Plus subscribers will have until the end of September to add the month's games to their library in order to keep playing them past the month's end.
- inFAMOUS: Second Son (PS4)
- Child of Light (PS4)
- RIGS: Mechanised Combat League (PSVR)
- That's You (PS4)
- Truck Racer (PS3)
- Handball 2016 (PS3)
- We Are Doomed (PS4/Vita)
- Hatoful Boyfriend (PS4/Vita)
These games will be available to download from 1 September. Until then, you can still download August's PS Plus line-up, which features Just Cause 3 and Assassin's Creed: Freedom Cry.
