Sony has launched its PS Plus January games line-up, which is the first to include some PlayStation 4 games.
PS Plus subscribers can grab Borderlands 2 and Devil May Cry on the PS3, while PS Vita owners are invited to download BlazBlue Continuum Shift and Soul Sacrifice free of charge.
Playstation 4 owners will be able to pick up Don’t Starve to keep them busy while you wait for the tsunami of incoming games for the new console.
As always, you can redeem the games through the Sony Entertainment Network website – which is far more convenient than navigating the PS3 and PS Vita menus.
Playstation 4 – Don’t Starve
Making its console debut is the beautifully crafted Don’t Starve from Klei Entertainment (Shank, Mark of the Ninja). Set in a world of science and magic, Don’t Starve is a wilderness survival game where you play as Wilson an intrepid gentleman scientist who is trapped by a demon and transported into this dark and mysterious world.
You must learn to exploit the environment and the inhabitants you will encounter if you want to have any chance of getting back home!
Playstation 3 – Borderlands 2 and Devil May Cry
On PS3 this month is DmC, Capcom’s latest entry in their Devil May Cry series. You play as Dante, a young man caught between worlds. The action plays out in Limbo City, a place secretly controlled by all-powerful demons. It’s a cracking action title, and a real work out for the thumbs – just the thing for burning off that Christmas excess.
PS Plus users will be invited to download the brilliant Borderlands 2 as part of the January promotion. In this acclaimed sequel by Gearbox Studios, you jump into the story of four new Vault Hunters as they fight to free Pandora from the clutches of Handsome Jack, the brilliant, charismatic, and utterly despicable CEO of the Hyperion Corporation.
Protip: splurge for the Psycho and Mechromancer character packs now and wait for the Season Pass to go on sale again.
Playstation Vita – Soul Sacrifice and BlazBlue Continuum Shift
BlazBlue Continuum Shift is a beautifully rendered 2D fighter that is right at home on the Vita. The latest title in the franchise offers the most substantial BlazBlue experience to date including all previous DLC characters as standard, the Calamity Trigger & Continuum Shift stories as well as brand new game modes and new stories to play through.
PS Plus members can also enjoy the all new playable character, Relius Clover and his robotic puppet Ignis, 23 epic scenarios to play through with the duo.
Prepare yourself for a brutal combat experience with Sony Japan’s Soul Sacrifice, where every decision made has significant consequence. You take on the role of a slave who stumbles upon a forbidden book that allows its readers to relive epic battles between sorcerers and monsters of the past.
In order to use the magic during fierce battles, the player must be willing to make a sacrifice in exchange – ranging from personal belongings, a limb, or even a life. What price will you pay for power?
