We’re trudging through the midsummer gaming drought once again, and what’s worse is that last week’s heat wave has long gone. Worry not, however, as there are still a few gems to be plucked from this dry spell. Not only that, this week heralds a brand new selection of free games available to PlayStation Plus subscribers!
- Rocket League [PS4 | PC]
- PlayStation Plus Update [PS4 | PS3 | PSV]
- Skullgirls 2nd Encore [PS4]
- Nekoburo – Cats Block [PSV]
- Pneuma: Breath of Life [PS4]
- Toro [PS4]
- Never Alone [Wii U]
- Funk Of Titans [Wii U]
- F1 2015 [PS4 | XB1 | PC]
First off the blocks we have Rocket League, the long awaited sequel to PSN classic, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle Cars. Not only is it the featured game in this month’s PS Plus roster, it also happens to be one of the best digital games you’ll play all year. Where newcomers can expect a quick, rewarding slice of car-footie fun, veterans will marvel at the slew of changes and additions Psyonix has made.
This week’s Plus update also brings Styx: Master of Shadows to the party on PS4, as well as Geometry Wars 3 for PS Vita and the eerily beautiful Rain on PS3.
Less than a week after Hamilton’s win at the Silverstone Grand Prix, Codemasters looks set to deliver yet another British frontrunner as F1 2015 touches down this Friday. Apart from the slightly earlier release window, this latest edition to the series marks its debut on current gen platforms, using an all-new version of the EGO game engine.
