110w ago - PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen is here with a sneak peek of PlayStation Plus content for November, which includes free Hydrophobia Prophecy and Jurassic Park: The Game with 1 year of PlayStation Plus.
To quote: It's time once again to have a look at upcoming PlayStation Plus content! PlayStation Plus is a subscription service that gives you access to free games, discounts on new and classic titles, and access to exclusive features of the network, all for just over $4 a month.
And this November, we're rolling out access to amazing content that you'll want to be a part of. To learn more about this, or get access to PlayStation Plus, either click here, or go the PlayStation Store on your PS3 console and go to the PlayStation Plus category.
Starting 11/1, enjoy free access to Hydrophobia Prophecy! Note that this is day and date with the release of the game. Free for the entire month for Plus subscribers, this action adventure uses the power of HydroEngine - the world's first fluid dynamics engine for games - to engage in mind blowing flow combat and incredible physics based puzzles.
This is also the definitive version of this title complete with PlayStation Move support, a redone backstory, a dramatic new ending, improved voice acting, and a ton of additional features.
We're also rolling out some classic Crash Bandicoot love with several Crash PSone Classics available for free downloads throughout the month. Crash Bandicoot 1, 2, and 3, along with CTR: Crash Team Racing are all available for the better part of November starting 11/1.
Free PS minis are also on deck with Rumble Trucks and the charming Where is my Heart? free through the month. In the last half of November, look forward to grabbing Doodle Fit, the best-selling puzzle game, free as well.
Lastly, you may have seen today's earlier note on the special Plus subscription offer in which you can sign up for Plus and receive Jurassic Park: The Game - Full Series (Episodes 1-4) free when it released on 11/15. Subscribing already? You're not left out! Existing subscribers are eligible to add more time to their Plus subscription and receive Jurassic Park: The Game - Full Series (Episodes 1-4) free when it drops on 11/15; thereby extending their current subscription end date.
There will be a number of other discounts and content throughout the month, many of which will be announced via the PlayStation Store Update.
