It’s one of the best months for PlayStation Plus in a while with a collection of classic looter shooters and the rebirth of a classic video game mascot. Check out what’s free this month for PlayStation Plus!
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Regular Price: $69.99; Free for PS Plus members
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection includes the definitive versions of both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, built specifically for next-gen consoles. Experience the highest performance and highest fidelity graphics for any Borderlands game ever played on a video game console. For the first time, play four-player split screen on a single screen, all in stunning high definition. Experience the entire Handsome Jack saga, from his not-so-humble beginnings to the heights of his egomaniacal tyranny.
Sonic Mania Regular Price: $25.99; Free for PS Plus members
Experience the ultimate celebration of past and future in Sonic Mania, an all-new 2D Sonic adventure running at a crisp 60FPS with stunning HD retro-style graphics. Multiple playable characters give you the ability to go explosively fast as Sonic, soar as Tails, or power through tough obstacles with Knuckles’ brute strength. You can re-live the Sonic of the past with an exciting new twist on classic zones while fighting against new bosses and Dr. Eggman’s evil robot army. Go head-to-head with players in Competition Mode or play in Co-Op Mode with a friend. Sonic Mania was developed by Christian Whitehead, Headcannon, and PagodaWest Games in collaboration with Sonic Team. Welcome to Sonic Mania
This is a great month for PS+. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection brings us some of the PS3’s best FPS looting shooters to PS4, and if you have a PS4 Pro you should remember to download the free 4K texture pack that is now available for the collection. The texture pack really makes a difference and helps a great game look even better. I’m not a big Sonic guy, but people did really seem to like this new take on Sega’s mascot, so I might give it a shot. I know my kids will enjoy it!
