February’s games have been announced with a long-awaited launch title and a game that was originally going to be a PS4 exclusive. Check out what’s available this month!
Knack Regular Price: $26.99; Free for PS Plus members
Mankind must turn to Knack, an unlikely hero, to protect them from a dangerous new threat. The unassuming Knack stands at a mere three feet tall, but thanks to the power of mysterious ancient relics, he can transform into a powerful brute or even a gigantic wrecking machine. Knack is mankind’s only hope for turning the tide against the invading goblin army, but trying to harness the true power of the relics could threaten to put the whole world at risk.
RiME Regular Price: $39.99; Free for PS Plus members
A land of discovery stretches out before you. Explore the beautiful yet rugged world of RiME, a single-player puzzle adventure. In RiME, you play as a young boy who has awakened on a mysterious island after a torrential storm. You see wild animals, long-forgotten ruins and a massive tower that beckons you to come closer. Armed with your wits and a will to overcome—and the guidance of a helpful fox—you must explore the enigmatic island, reach the tower’s peak, and unlock its closely guarded secrets.
StarBlood Arena Regular Price: $29.99; Free for PS Plus members
Test your mettle in furious arena combat as you move, evade, and attack in any direction against pilots from every corner of the galaxy. Fight for glory, credits, and your life as the StarBlood Network broadcasts every lawless match for the universe to see. Whether it’s single player Carnage deathmatches, Team Carnage* deathmatches, or Invaders co-op*, you’ll be constantly challenged to step up your game and prove that you’ve got the skills to emerge victorious.
The StarBlood Network cameras are on, everyone is watching, and there’s no safe space in the Arena. Ready? You better be.
Welcome to StarBlood Arena.
• Outmaneuver your opposition in chaotic combat with total freedom to move, evade, and attack in any direction.
• Pilot one of 9 distinct ships with their own unique pilot, playstyle, and loadout.
• Play single player, co-op, or multiplayer* matches to unlock ship, weapon, and auxiliary modifications

As always, for PlayStation Plus users who don’t have a PS4 yet, be sure to log in at the PSN Webstore to get the games added to your collection so that you can download them once you do get one.
Again just like January, Starblood: Arena is available for PSVR users for February. Even if you don’t have a PSVR headset yet get for when you finally pick up a headset.
I played Knack when it first came out, and you can check out my review for the game here. RiME was originally a PlayStation exclusive, but near the end of development Sony and Grey Box decided to part ways and the game went multiplatform. I’m definitely excited to give it a try now since I love the art direction for the game and its general premise.
