‘Heads-Up’ PlayStation Plus Update – 4th July 2012
It’s our first update to the Instant Game Collection here in SCEE and that brings a new Game of the Month! Congratulations if you’ve already figured out what it is.
Here’s a reminder of what’s in store for you…
I’m very pleased Square-Enix have agreed to provide this game, it’s certainly to my mind one of the finest titles of 2011 and a personal favourite.
THE TRUTH WILL CHANGE YOU. To save his life after a deadly attack, Adam Jensen had no choice but to become physically augmented with cybernetics. Driven by his need for answers, he soon finds himself chasing down leads all over the world. The choices he makes, as he unravels a vast conspiracy, will help determine the fate of humanity.
If you want to take full advantage of everything Deus Ex: Human Revolution has to offer, there are also three downloadable content packs available:
The Explosive Mission pack contains an additional bonus mission, Tong’s Rescue, the Remote-Detonated Explosive Device and the Automatic Unlocking Device.
The Explosive Mission and Tactical Enhancement pack contains all of the above, plus the Double-Barrel Shotgun, the Silenced Sniper Rifle and 10,000 extra in-game credits.
Finally, The Missing Link pack adds a whole new section of the campaign that covers the events that take place while Adam Jensen is missing for three days during the game. Where did he go and what did he do? You’ll need this pack to find out.
I am very pleased to tell you that the above packs are all a whopping 50% off exclusively for PlayStation Plus subscribers for the next two weeks, so grab them early to avoid disappointment and complete your Deus Ex experience.
And now, the icing on the cake – if you’ve caught “franchise fever” then you can see where it all began (although since it’s chronologically a sequel that’s not quite right) and grab yourself a copy of the PS2 smash hit Deus Ex, certainly one of the greatest games ever made, also at 50% off.
What else this week then?
Well starting today we have two new PSN titles launching, both of which have significant discounts in their launch week – for you JRPG fans out there we have Rainbow Moon, an epic adventure with hours and hours of gameplay and if you’re feeling a little board (HA!) why not give Dungeon Twister a throw (I’m on fire!) – as the classic board game is updated for a digital release, offering single and multiplayer action with tons of replayability.
That’s it from me today – you’ll hear from me again in two weeks when we’ll be dropping in with two titles – it’s almost time to bid a fond farewell to Chime Super Deluxe and Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine which leave us on July 18th – if you want to keep hold of these titles make sure you grab them and add them to your download list or you’ll lose access to them.
What’s coming up? Come back soon to find out!
