Sony has done it again with a great month of PS+ titles featuring an excellent PS3 remaster and a new take on the online fighting genre. Come see what PS+ has in store this month!
Heavy Rain Regular Price: $29.99; Free for PS Plus members
How Far Will You Go To Save Someone You Love?
Experience a gripping psychological thriller filled with innumerable twists and turns. Spanning four days of mystery and suspense, the hunt is on for a murderer known only as the Origami Killer – named after his macabre calling card of leaving behind folded paper shapes at crime scenes. Four characters, each following their own leads and with their own motives, must take part in a desperate attempt to prevent the killer from claiming a new victim.
You need to think fast and act even faster, as every choice and move you make can result in dramatic, game-changing consequences – and even determine who lives… and who dies.
How this story ends is entirely up to you.
Absolver; Regular Price: $39.99; Free for PS Plus members
Absolver is an online multiplayer combat experience where players are placed behind the mask of a Prospect by the ever-present Guides, the new rulers of the fallen Adal Empire that will determine your worth in joining their elite corps of enforcers. Prospects will wander forsaken lands, encountering others to learn new combat skills, acquire weapons and armor, and engage in solo duels and intense three-on-three battles.
Players will define their Prospect’s approach by picking a combat style, a weapon of choice, and arranging attacks in their Combat Deck to design their unique and personal attack flow. Through battle with opponents, sparing with friends, and even taking on a mentor players will expand their knowledge and mastery of combat with new moves, weapons, and armor on their journey to Absolution. Gameplay modes include solo play, online cooperative modes, and online versus modes.
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. Sony announced that PS+ would be discontinuing both PS3 and PS Vita titles in March of 2019, so if you are relying on those through the services and don’t see the value in PS+ anymore you should look at what your options are.
This is a great month overall featuring Heavy Rain, a classic on PS3 now remastered. I’m slightly surprised that they are giving it away this month as it was included in the Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe Edition. That being said, I’m still glad to see it included. Absolver is a really unique online fighting game, focusing on skill and giving it out free can only help its player base. EripmaV reviewed it and thought it was fun to play.
