3w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer unveiled their PlayStation Plus April preview today, which includes Arkham City, Mercenary Kings and more below!

To quote: Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, Batman! Yes, that is the sound of Batman: Arkham City coming to PlayStation Plus in April for PlayStation 3 owners.

Arkham City garnered praise from gamers and critics alike, as evidenced by its cumulative 96/100 score on Metacritic. With the recent announcement of Batman Arkham Knight, this is a great way to catch up on Batman's adventures.

PlayStation 4 owners can join up with friends and take down an evil corporation in a new 2D action game, Mercenary Kings. As you explore the island CLAW (that's the evil corporation) has taken over, you'll discover weapon parts that you can take back to your base and use to fashion together some new spiffy gear.

There are two other PS3 games this month: Stealth Inc. A Clone In the Dark and Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse. Stealth Inc. is, as you can probably guess, a game where you should stick to the shadows.

The only way to make it out of the lab alive is via some sneaky platforming, so proceed with caution. Castle of Illusion is a proper remake of the Sega Genesis version, not...

300°
16w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer unveiled a PlayStation Plus January 2014 content preview with details below today, as follows:

It's almost time for the New Year, and we're ready to kick-off 2014 in a big way. January's Instant Game Collection will offer PlayStation Plus members loads of amazing titles, starting off with a new PlayStation 4 title - Don't Starve.

A wilderness survival game wrapped in a cute art style, you'll take control of a Gentleman Scientist trying to make his way home from a mysterious place. Be warned - this is one of those games where you'll die a lot, but if you ever get frustrated, just look at how cute your buddy Chester is and I'm sure everything will be okay.

For PlayStation 3 owners, you'll be able to download three critically acclaimed games - DMC Devil May Cry, BioShock Infinite and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. DMC Devil May Cry is a reboot of the beloved franchise, and while Dante may have received a haircut and a new backstory, his weapons and fighting style should be fairly familiar to fans.

Created by the same folks who brought us BioShock, BioShock Infinite has received multiple Game of the Year nominations. This isn't your average first-person shooter, you'll gather vigors throughout your journey that will fling your...

24w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer is here with a preview of the PlayStation Plus November 2013 content below!

To quote: It's going to be quite the month for PlayStation fans. PS4 is almost here, and it's going to be mega awesome when I fire mine up for the first time and already have two free games to play.

Yep, both Resogun, the intense and beautiful shoot 'em up from Housemarque(the amazing people behind Super Stardust) and Contrast, a unique 2D/3D puzzler platformer with a stunning art style will be available in the Instant Game Collection for PlayStation Plus members on November 15th.

Of course, we have plenty of other great games to keep you busy until then, like Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, which is an expanded and enhanced version of Capcom's original IP Dragon's Dogma. There's a new area to explore, a fast-travel system and plenty of new quests and weapons to keep you busy.

Later on this month we'll add ibb & obb, a 2-player co-op puzzler and Binary Domain, a third-person squad shooter. PS Vita owners can look forward to two amazing action-adventure titles: the classic Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath and the ever-epic Soul Sacrifice.

These games will hit the Instant Game Collection at various times throughout the month, so check back with...
 

Sony PlayStation Plus Content Updates October 2013 Preview

100°
29w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer is here with the PlayStation Plus October 2013 content preview updates below.

To quote: I'm a sucker for fantasy. If a game allows it, I'll create an elf mage because magic is awesome. This month I can do just that as Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is entering the Instant Game Collection. With a tale crafted by NY Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore, stunning visuals from Todd McFarlane, and a customizable combat system, Reckoning has a lot to offer RPG fans.

The mix-and-match combat means I can get my magic fix while also smashing things in the face with a hammer, or stabbing them with a sword and other various pointy weapons, which is pretty cool if you ask me.

You may remember that last month we added Team Ico's original cult classic ICO to the IGC, so their equally beloved sequel Shadow of the Colossus seemed like a natural follow-up. Slaying the majestic Colossi should make you feel something (read: incredibly guilty), but hey, you gotta save your #1 girl, right? In a completely different vein, Plus members will also receive Poker Night 2, which is an amusing twist on the classic card game.

With GLaDOS as the dealer and opponents like Claptrap from Borderlands and Ash from Army of Darkness you can sit back, have...
