77w ago - Today Sony's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team has detailed the PS Plus updates that will be hitting the PSN store from December 7 to the 14th for subscribers, as follows:
December comes to end the year and a PlayStation Plus content refresh is in order. This update will take place on Wednesday, 7th December and you'll have the opportunity to grab all the current content until then.
This month we have Tomb Raider: Underworld as our main title included with your subscription. In an ancient ruin on the floor of the Mediterranean Sea, Lara Croft uncovers proof of the Norse underworld and Thor's mythical hammer.
As she attempts to unravel the secrets behind these myths, Lara's perilous journey leads her toward a forgotten power that, if unleashed, could lay waste to all civilization. Serious business, no?
Anyway, while you're raiding tombs in a low-cut top, make sure you also check out your other offers this month, including Cool Boarders for PSone, and your requisite minis. From the 14th December you'll also be able to grab a copy of Marvel Pinball from Zen Studios at no extra cost. If flippers are your thing and you like the game, we've also secured 50% off the first two DLC packs for you too.
Speaking of DLC - the Deadline DLC Pack for Split/Second: Velocity is included at no extra cost in your Plus subscription this month. Just in case you don't already own the criminally underrated Split/Second, we've also got 50% off the digital version available from the Store throughout December.
Alongside the other bits and pieces this month, we've also got a Goldeneye 007: Reloaded demo for you a week before it hits the rest of the Store on the 14th, so enjoy your early playtest of Bond's latest PS3 outing.
Finally, from this week we're implementing a new category in Plus which brings us in line with SCEA - we'll be offering a selection of Full Game Title trials, starting with around 20 titles available on the Store which we'll expand as time goes on. As usual, you'll have an hour to try out each title and then you'll have the option to unlock the full game if you want to keep playing.
That's all for now, you might find a few extra bits and pieces come to light throughout the month - don't forget that if you're a new subscriber to take advantage of the '12 Gifts of Christmas' with a new title from the Plus back catalogue available every 48 hours. What's more, keep an eye on the main Store's '12 Deals of Christmas' promotion, with additional discounts available for Plus members throughout the month. Bye for now!
