In today’s Playstation Blog post, the full suite of Playstation Plus titles has been revealed for December, and it’s shaping up to be a pretty good month for fans of freebies.
The owners of PS Plus on Playstation 4 are receiving the first episode of the King’s Quest reboot and Gauntlet: Slayer Edition, originally released in July and September of this year, respectively. These games launched to relatively positive reviews, especially King’s Quest, but while these games are from larger studios than some of the other offerings Sony has given over the past few months, it may not be enough to sate those looking to receive free AAA experiences on their “next-gen” systems.
PS3 owners are getting a special treat this month in the form of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, the wacky sci-fi themed spin-off of the highly popular Far Cry 3, a title that has become one of the more popular standalone expansions released in the past few years. Coupled with this is the snowboarding game SSX, an extremely well-received sports title that is sure to please fans of the genre. I believe the PS3 offerings to be the strongest this month, as both games are spectacular and well worth checking out, especially the neon-fueled carnage that is Blood Dragon.
Owners of Sony’s sadly neglected portable console are thankfully receiving a little holiday goodie as well with Freedom Wars, the Monster Hunter-style game all about smashing up big stompy robots as you try to whittle down your one million year (!) prison sentence. In the vein of Soul Sacrifice and Gods Eater Burst, it’s a cooperative title that is definitely worth the price of admission, although in the case of this month that price is simply the cost of the Plus subscription. Also free this month on the Vita is quirky indie title Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, a cute little platformer with an intriguing art style and a surprisingly grim story considering the…chickens.
All in all, there’s a little something for everybody in the upcoming month of giving, and there are truly some great games included in the roster of freebies.
