That’s You will end it turns being free after a few months October 24th so make sure you pick it up before it’s over and you can’t. It’s supposed to be a great party game!!
Also, Rigs is free for PSVR still free until November 7th, so add that to your download library too even if you do not have a PSVR headset yet!
Final piece of housekeeping is that starting October 17th, PS+ members can join the beta for Hand of Gods: Smite Tactics with some extra bonues for being a PS+ member. I really enjoyed Smite when I reviewed it and played it… Looking forward to checking this one out.
Metal Gear is a franchise I have never gotten into, that being said I was always curious about The Phantom Pain. I’ve heard it’s very approachable for newcomers so hopefully, it goes better than Ground Zero did for me. EdEN reviewed The Amnesia Collection and found it to be great set of horror games to experience. EdEN also reviewed Hue which he found to be a charming puzzle platformer. Finally, Sky Force Anniversary is hitting as well and it looks like a cool retro Shoot em Up. Looking forward to giving that one a try.
