LIMBO And Vanquish Rumoured To Be Coming To PlayStation Plus

Black and white and lots of bullets.

The solemn, moody LIMBO and the balls-out brilliant Vanquish are both rumoured to be heading to PlayStation Plus in Europe, as the next two titles to be included in the Instant Game Collection.

LIMBO is a side-on platform puzzler with absolutely bags of atmosphere, which saw an extended exclusive period on the Xbox 360 before finally appearing on the PlayStation 3. Vanquish is Platinum Games’ wonderful third person shooter which is absolutely worth playing.

The games were apparently outed in the latest issue of Empire magazine, although we can’t currently confirm the details 100%.

The games are expected to be announced soon, and there should be another title for the service in December. The Instant Game Collection forms part of the Plus subscription, where games are offered for no additional cost as long as you continue to subscribe.

Good choices?

    Really not a fan of Limbo. Went in expecting greatness, but was bored before long. Didn’t enjoy it at all. However, lots of people love it, so seems like a good thing to give away.

    Never played Vanquish. Didn’t like the demo too much, so i never got the full game. Willing to give it a try for free though, especially as lots of people love it

    I tried the Vnaquish demo and didn’t really warm to it – i’ll still grab it on plus though as i’m sure i’ll get a rainy day out of it somewhere along the way.

    Limbo.. meh, Vanquish yay… I really do hope its true because I’ve never bothered to buy it, wish I did because I really enjoyed the free Plus challenge demo back then.

    Vita plus is nice, but not to the same level as PS3. Uncharted and Gravity Rush are there long term with the other 2 games changing monthly. Probably going to be cheaper end games.

    Vanquish is great and would love to play again. Limbo less so and have no desire to replay. Both great titles for Plus though and vanquish certainly deserves wider recognition.

    Vanquish is a great title. Got it free when i was workng at SEGA and now free again from Plus. Limbo i never played but wil give it a shot now. One gamei would like to see on plus that need wider recognition is Valkyria Chronicles but i know it prob wont ever come out.
