Update: All three PlayStation Plus games for February are now live to download. You can find the direct links below in our updated story.
“Control, I like to have a lot,” sang Janet Jackson in 1985, conveniently predicting reviews of Remedy Entertainment’s smash hit game 24 years before it was released. Sadly she didn’t about a Concrete Genie, but there is the song Concrete Angel by Gareth Emery featuring Christina Novelli and it’s a right banger. I can’t find any songs about Destruction AllStars so my intro falls apart at this point, sorry.
That’s what you’re getting in this month’s PlayStation Plus update, though, and the PS5 exclusive Destruction AllStars in particular went live at midnight in your respective regions – it is now available in all regions. Alongside this spiritual successor to Destruction Derby, you also have Control: Ultimate Edition which now enhances Remedy’s excellent game for PS5. and the lovely Concrete Genie.
Here’s links for all three:
Destruction AllStars is a 27.058GB install in the UK, though you can start playing the tutorials after 17.479GB.
Here’s some blurb from Sony about each game which will be part of this month’s PS+ games:
Destruction AllStars (PS5)
Entertain the crowds by bringing controlled chaos to the vehicular combat arena of this metal-crunching multiplayer game*. Pick one of 16 superstar competitors, then leap into four game modes, using timing, tactics and skills to cause carnage behind the wheel or create havoc with your parkour skills. Perfect your character’s abilities – including a hero vehicle unique to them – to give you the edge in free-for-all battles or team challenges and become Global Destruction Federation Champion. The game also supports PS5’s Game Help feature, giving you hints and tips to become the ultimate destructive machine without the need to leave the game.
Control: Ultimate Edition (PS5 and PS4)
Master supernatural abilities and wield a shape-shifting sidearm in this third-person action-adventure from Remedy Entertainment (Max Payne, Alan Wake). Take on the role of Jesse Faden, Director of the Federal Bureau of Control, whose New York headquarters are breached by an ominous enemy. Despite outward appearances, the skyscraper’s interior is vast and ever-shifting. You’ll need to explore – and weaponize – this unpredictable environment to clean house and repel the invaders.
Concrete Genie (PS4)
Pick up a magic paintbrush and return the polluted town of Denska to its former bright and bustling seaside self in this touching and multi-award winning action-adventure. Cleanse streets and alleyways, then use your Living Paint to create mischievous Genies whose magical powers will aid you in overcoming puzzles and seeing off bullies who pursue you.
