PlayStation announces their PlayStation Plus free games lineup for September of 2016. Subscribers are in for a treat as these games are gems from two very opposite sides of a gaming spectrum.
Done by the people that made FlOw and Flower — two of the most therapeutic games ever made — comes a game that aims to deliver a far more sublime experience. Being alone in the desert with the sole objective of getting to a mountain top might seem too bland an objective, but like any wise man know: it’s all about the Journey, not the destination. The journey between point A and point B is flushed by gorgeous sceneries, a fantastic musical score, and a unique online experience. Enough for this game to stick around long after your done playing.
Lords of the Fallen
This is an action RPG with three customizable classes to choose from. Fight through difficult encounters whichever way you’d like. Tailor your hero to your playstyle and engage in an epic story of redemption and a war between humans and gods. The Souls series has come a long way, and many think that it had paved the way to a new genre, and Lords of the Fallen is one of the first few to embrace it.
Aside from these two PS4 titles, PlayStation still offers free games for PS3 and PSVita. Some of these titles are cross-platform too, meaning you can play the game across all supported PlayStation systems.
Here’s the full list:
- Lords of the Fallen, PS4
- Journey, PS4, PS3
- Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, PS3
- Datura, PS3
- Badland, PS Vita, PS4, PS3
- Amnesia: Memories, PS Vita
New games are offered every month and all acquired games in PS Plus remain yours so long as your subscribed. It’s important to note that Sony announced an upcoming price increase for it’s PlayStation Plus subscriptions. the price for the 12-month sub will go from $49.99 USD/$49.99 CAD to $59.99 USD/$69.99 CAD, while the 3-month sub will go from $17.99 USD/$17.99 CAD to $24.99 USD/$29.99 CAD. The 1-month subscription will stay at $9.99 USD, but will increase to $11.99 CAD.
Though the free games for September seem to be of better value than the usual offerings, it’s still early to say whether the new price tag on the subs will also improve the overall value of the service. Protip: If your planning to stay subscribed to Plus for the years to come, we suggest stocking up on PS+ cards while the price is right as these redeem codes stack with your current subscription.
