UPDATE: The February PlayStation Plus games have been revealed and they are Firewall Zero Hour, The Sims 4, and Bioshock: The Collection!
Yep, you read that right, three games, one exclusively for PlayStation VR owners. This will be the third time the Bioshock games have been on PlayStation Plus, as Bioshock 2 and Infinite were on the service in the days of PlayStation 3.
Here’s more from Sony:
BioShock: The Collection
From the undersea city of Rapture to the airborne metropolis of Columbia, BioShock: The Collection takes players on monumental journeys through awe-inspiring, deceptively dangerous places that are simply unforgettable. BioShock: The Collection features all three games in this award-winning series – BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite – remastered in 1080p, including all single-player add-on content.
The Sims 4
The Sims is celebrating its 20th birthday this February, and you’re invited to join the party! Now’s your chance to play with life in The Sims 4, where you can unleash your imagination and create Sims in a unique world that’s an expression of you.
Firewall Zero Hour (PlayStation VR required)
Become a hired contractor and expertly seize – or protect – sensitive information from opposing teams in Firewall Zero Hour, a 4v4 tactical shooter developed exclusively for PS VR. Dive straight into these intense multiplayer battles when Firewall Zero Hour’s new season – Operation: Black Dawn – also begins 4th February, featuring a new map (Oil Rig) available for all players, and other free content!
Original story follows.
The days have flown by and it’s almost time for Nathan Drake and, er, a goat, to leave the PlayStation Plus service so they can be replaced by someone new. Sony should be revealing the February PlayStation Plus games at 4.30pm this afternoon but PlayStation Spain have already posted a tease.
In a comment on their YouTube channel they posted “Mañana a las 17:30 anunciamos los juegos de PS PLUS del mes de febrero. ¿Cuáles crees que serán? Una pista, uno de ellos es una saga muy conocida,” which translates to “Tomorrow at 17:30 we announce the PS PLUS games of the month of February. What do you think they will be? A clue, one of them is a well-known saga.”
The post ends with a picture of Crash Bandicoot jumping in the air which has got some punters thinking that one of the games would be the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. That seems rather too obvious to me and I would not call the Crash games a ‘saga’. It’s also worth remembering that Sony usually offer a game that is of generally high quality but one that has not sold millions recently and Crash sold by the bucketload. That’s also the reason why God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn are unlikely to ever turn up on PlayStation Plus, everyone already owns them.
So what games could be classed as a saga? The Witcher 3 would be a good choice but lots of people own that already so it fails my test, we’ve already had Metal Gear, and Batman, but what about Mass Effect: Andromeda? Shadow Of The Tomb Raider would be another good call, or perhaps the final season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead, Sony do like giving away Telltale games on PlayStation Plus.
What are your guesses for this month’s games? Let us know in the comments and come back at 4.30pm GMT for the big reveal!
