New on PlayStation Plus in December: Gauntlet, King’s Quest, more

Freedom Wars, SSX, Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon also join the service

Winter is coming…. and so is next month’s batch of PlayStation Plus games. Are you ready to delve into epic battles against the forces of darkness, or maybe you’d rather play it a little safer with a light-hearted adventure? Well, you’re in luck because we have both bases covered – with PlayStation Plus, you can fight over dragons and kings this holiday season, rather than who gave the worst gifts…

Here’s the full list of great titles that await you on 1st December:

Gauntlet: Slayer Edition

Fanboys/girls you can feel extra special this month as you are getting your hands on a PS4 exclusive! Know any wannabee/legit Warriors, Valkyries, Wizards, or Elves? Well then, assemble your team and prepare to invade the darkness with Gauntlet: Slayer Edition! Fight with your friends through the monstrous hordes lurking in a myriad of unique dungeons as you scour them for gold. What’s more, we are also giving away a free Gauntlet Slayer Edition PlayStation Plus theme on 1st December too!

PS: Hack-and-slash or take a more strategic approach, but for the love of Gauntlet, don’t shoot the food or you may be in for a tough time with your team mates! I mean, who isn’t cranky when they’re hungry, especially when your health bar depends on it?!

King’s Quest – Chapter 1: A Knight to Remember

It’s going to be a night to remember when King’s Quest – Chapter 1: A Knight to Remember (yes, I am aware of how lame that was) drops next month! Brace yourself for a fun filled fantasy adventure with enchanting characters and a beautiful art style in this reimagining of the classic adventure series.

And that’s not all. Go full throttle in the explosive ’80s-themed shooter Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon (PS3), snowboard through beloved sports franchise SSX (PS3), annihilate an evil penguin regime in action adventure Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken (PS Vita), or escape a million-year prison sentence in Freedom Wars (PS Vita).

Last chance!

One word: FOMO. If you haven’t downloaded November’s games, don’t say I didn’t warn you – you’ve got until 30th November to grab these awesome titles:

Better, but not as good as buying SSX on the cheap (not as good as the PS2 SSX games) and letting my subscription lapse. Too little too late I’m afraid.

    Same here. This will be the last content that I’ll receive, after being a subscriber since the very beginning. But it simply isn’t worth it anymore.
    I’m sure that some will disagree, who think that receiving single chapters (from a 5 chapter game) is a wonderful deal, compared to what Plus used to be.

    Last-Rapture 25 November, 2015 @ 5:03 pm    

    I’ve been a non-subscriber for a couple of months now and I’ve not felt like I’m missing anything. Come brother, join the liberation!

    fps_d0minat0r 25 November, 2015 @ 5:54 pm    

    @ Last-Rapture
    I doubt many people are paying for plus on the basis of the games.
    If tomorrow they said online gaming was free again, i’m sure most people wouldnt bother extending their subscription.


    @fps: i’m also paying PS+ not on the basis of games. I’m using it for the extra discounts, exclusive freebies (unrelated to IGC) and those savegames… yeah because someone decided to LOCK savegames for FULLY SINGLEPLAYER GAMES inside a console, and the only way to save them, is Cloud Savings… i’ve even bought some games that were offered in the IGC due to glitches or because i wanted them so badly, even physical.


    @Lance_87 You know you don’t need PS+ to back up your savegames, right? The saves are stored on the console and you can back up to a memory stick. The savegames aren’t locked to anything at all and you don’t need to use the cloud if you’re saving to a memory stick or external storage.


    @Ryuke87: well tell me, GENIUS, how to backup savegames for 3D Dot Game Heroes, Dante’s Inferno, Need for Speed Undercover, Armored Core V, Bayonetta, Beyond, Deadstorm Pirates, Heavy Rain, Killzone 2, Phantom Pain, Mass Effect 2 and 3, Tekken Tag 2, Time Crisis 4 Arcade Version, Vanquish, Wolfenstein, Crash Commando, Chronicles of Mystara, and many others i’m not going to list, to a memory stick…

    Microbianhen 26 November, 2015 @ 5:16 pm    


    Ryuke87 has mistake “memory Stick” instead “usb pendrive”. You can easily backup save files in a pendrive, or even directly to a PC. Also Vita games.


    @Micro: can’t you even read my latest post? -_-


    @Lance, Settings > System Storage > Saved Data > Copy to USB Storage Device. Works with Ground Zeroes atleast.


    As for the ps3 games, it’s probably the same. I’ve never encountered something where i couldn’t use usb.


    D’oh you list the copy protected ones. Tough luck i guess. Blame the devs, others dl to usb just fine 🙂


    OHHHH, finally someone who could understand my post! It only took three of them, though… 😉

RayDonovan_- 25 November, 2015 @ 4:34 pm   4

thank you, i am done with this service and never come back. thank you for christmas

    cognac-vsop 25 November, 2015 @ 4:53 pm    

    Sony is the Grinch!

    Stonesthrow 25 November, 2015 @ 5:12 pm    


    madmanwithabox12 25 November, 2015 @ 10:09 pm    

    Thank you for Christmas. That’s an interesting interpretation…


    If this continues I’m gonna have to start using my Xbox One my primary console again.. ’cause Sony, you know, they really do justice to the slogan “FOR THE GAMERS”! Unlike you… Throwing crappy slogans around and cant even add the smallest features like friend notifications because you wanna build up on your entry level PEWDIEPIE streaming feature first! Want BC??? Too bad it cant be done because of REASONS!!! Want GOOD GAMES?? Cant have it, even though PS+ was supposed to be about free games “For the gamers”. Want your most wanted features to be added?? Why would you want that?? DIDNT YOU KNOW, THE PS4 UI is already PERFECT!!!

    Your service is becoming more laughable by the day.

cognac-vsop 25 November, 2015 @ 4:34 pm   5

damn fam, it’s christmas month man, jesus birthday.. thought you guys would break out some of those AAA ps4 titles man.. where your christmas spirit at? another weak month.. not 2 bad for ps3.. i already got ssx tho.. but i’m lookin forward to that Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon..

    Last-Rapture 25 November, 2015 @ 4:59 pm    

    You make a good point about it being Christmas though. This is when Sony is likely to sell more consoles than any other time of the year, bringing in a lot of new PlayStation owners who will be curious about PS+. With a poor selection, that’s not much of an incentive for new customers to subscribe.

    fallacious 25 November, 2015 @ 6:38 pm    

    Jesus wasn’t born in December. It’s all a con.

    Last-Rapture 25 November, 2015 @ 6:53 pm    

    I think the biggest con here is “for the players”

    Munzienio 26 November, 2015 @ 9:36 pm    

    Maybe as many consoles will be sold Xmas time then Sony will offer a decent ps plus game in January to fully convince those new console owners without plus to subscribe as decent games in December may likely be missed by new console owners


I usually take what I’m given but this…one of the worst months ever. Considering let my subscription lapse.


I wanted SSX for a while, so that’s decent of you guys. Not too familiar with the PS4 games, but I’ll give them a try.

    The fact that “decent” now passes for a positive comment speaks volumes of what PS+ has become..

RodrigoSharingan 25 November, 2015 @ 4:35 pm   8

I see they continue to have a awful service. Man, i miss the old PS+.
Can’t wait for my sub to expire, because this service is a carcass of what it used to be.

cognac-vsop 25 November, 2015 @ 4:35 pm   9

hope that black friday sale good at least.. but i ain’t holding my breath..

ten-bucks 25 November, 2015 @ 4:37 pm   10

Ok I guess. Better for the vita but I had freedom wars anyway. Gauntlet nearly bought that so thanks!!



tenshi_alpha 25 November, 2015 @ 4:37 pm   12

Well, can’t say I think this is likely to incentivise people to ask for “a new PS+ subscription” for Christmas. :/

SSX is fun though. I already played it through on 360 a few years ago, might replay it on PS3 now.

My copy of Freedom Wars is still sitting on the shelf; I just hadn’t gotten round to playing it yet. I so often feel like I’m an idiot for buying Vita games on release, since they get to PS+ before I get round to playing them.

ste_the_legend 25 November, 2015 @ 4:37 pm   13

Surprised how much hate this appears to be getting. I actually think it seems like a pretty decent line up. A little different.

Freedom Wars was meant to be a AAA title, even if it didn’t really sell all that well.

    Gotrek_74 25 November, 2015 @ 6:01 pm    

    I guess you aren’t a PS4 owner. The 2 offerings for us are atrocious considering that we are the ones who pay for the games as we have the biggest user base.

    Stonesthrow 25 November, 2015 @ 6:03 pm    

    Not to mention it being mandatory for online on ps4 (!!)


    I was thinking about buying Gauntlet a while back, so will give that a go now. Kings quest also looks good, but don’t like the idea of only getting one chapter free….

    Freedom wars is cool. Finally a decent non-handmedown title on the Vita again

    ste_the_legend 26 November, 2015 @ 9:13 am    

    @Gotrek_74 – I own all 3 systems that PS+ applies to

    Gauntlet is reviewed at 71% on metacritic, Kings quest is reviewed at 77%.

    Those are both good games. We can’t expect AAA games all the time. I like PS+ for giving us a chance to play games that maybe we didn’t catch first time around.

    Gotrek_74 26 November, 2015 @ 2:20 pm    

    @ste_the_legend Okay, my apologies. For you it is a good month then. Can you understand how it is for those who own just the PS4 though? It is just unacceptable that they palm the lead console owners off with the weakest offerings. I really thought that last months IGC,the two year launch anniversary, or this one, Christmas, would hold something really nice for the PS4 gamers but we were let down once again.

    Gotrek_74 26 November, 2015 @ 2:22 pm    

    PS When did we get any AAA games? Please do not say Injustice (a PS3 port) or MGS V: The Demo.

    ste_the_legend 26 November, 2015 @ 3:01 pm    

    Yeah I guess you are right about the PS4 content. PS+ has changed though. For PS3 it was an optional upgrade (and obviously designed to get people ready for paying to play online when PS4 came out) so they had to incentivise it with some really good games. Now that everyone is a PS+ member out of habit more than anything else, Sony can get away with giving us less for our money. The other thing is that publishers have to agree to giving their games away for free (obviously they get paid a load of money by Sony) and so maybe they think they can make more money by selling their games as normal. Going forward I expect PS+ to stay with indie titles and titles with a ton of paid DLC. I will continue to subscribe even though I don’t play online all that much mainly because I still have a huge backlog of titles from my time with PS+


    King’s Quest is part one of a five-part episodic thing, and not a full game, while Gauntlet looks to be doing exactly what last month’s Magicka 2 did, but not as well.

    Plus, my PS4 is primarily for playing games either solo or with my son, so a 16+ rated local co-op title isn’t that useful to me.

    Still, I’ve still got the PS3, so SSX is nice to have.

    Munzienio 26 November, 2015 @ 9:47 pm    

    I too own all three systems. Ps+ for ps4 is also for online play whereas for other systems is optional so you could argue that the other systems pay for the games. Also I don’t know if it’s true but the earlier comment about ps4 paying for games based on user Base would assume that more ps4 owners have plus than the other platforms. However, having said that I do understand where you are coming from and whilst you cannot expect triple A games every month you’d think one would have been giving away by now even knack or killzone


Pretty decent line up for PS3 (which I sold two years ago!) but dreadful choices for PS4. I have now given up on PS+ giving PS4 games worth playing on a regular basis. If and when good games get put up I’ll be pleased but my subscription is being kept purely for online multiplayer and discounts. Who would have guessed back when Games with Gold launched that eventually it would be more appealing than PS+ one day?!


Again great for me, I have been thinking about getting Kings Quest for a while and I have never played Blood Dragon.


Uhm… is this the first time that we get an episodic game on plus? (as incomplete, i’m aware of games like The Walking dead from this month)

Oh well, i hope that at least Gauntlet isn’t a broken mess as Magicka 2…


    Gauntlet and Magicka 2 are not the same developers though 🙂


    @Wingfrog, Oh, i know, i’m just bitter because i was playing Magicka 2 with friends and now i just can’t play the game, can’t load the old save and can’t start a new game, the game is just broken and there isn’t any solution yet so i don’t want to start another game and stop midway because of some problem.


Nice line-up this month – even if SSX and Freedom Wars have been down to a few quid before, they are great games. Excited to finally play Blood Dragon!

DisturbedPT 25 November, 2015 @ 4:40 pm   18

Make Rocketbirds compatible with PS TV, come oooooooooooooooooooooooooon.

smurfsdabomb 25 November, 2015 @ 4:41 pm   19

Great selections for PS3 and Vita!


You’re totally don’t care about PS4 players. You sold 30 millions PS4 but the PS+ is always bad (i’m not saying bad words) on this console.
2 years, the PS4 have 2 years and NO one AAA game on PS+. It’s pathetic.


    * You totally don’t care


    Erm… Injustice was a AAA game on PS+ for PS4….. “the PS4 have 2 years and NO one AAA game on PS+” = Incorrect statement


    Yeah, it’s true.
    ONLY one AAA games in 2 years of the Ps4’s life.

    Gotrek_74 25 November, 2015 @ 8:47 pm    

    @RTLF That was simply a PS3 port to PS4, I don’t consider it to be a AAA game at all. And for those that consider MGS V: The Demo as a triple A they can do one!


    Rocket League is AAA to me 🙂


ps plus is useless,why isnt plus getting any off the same type of games,games with gold is getting

    Gotrek_74 25 November, 2015 @ 8:53 pm    

    Because Sony are trying to get as much money out to of us without spending any themselves. It’s down to Sony suffering losses in many of their other ventures. Gaming is one of the few that is making a profit and they don’t want to give any of that back to the gamer it seems.


Worst month for PS4 😐 Unfortunately, i need PS+ to play FIFA online …

johnnycide 25 November, 2015 @ 4:44 pm   23

Wow…. that’s [DELETED] even for plus.

If you can’t give away decent ps4 content then why not offer some other incentives? Free movie rentals or reduced prices for psnow or something? This is garbage of the highest order as far as the ps4 is concerned.

    Last-Rapture 25 November, 2015 @ 5:17 pm    

    Really good ideas there, Sony need to listen to the consumers keeping them afloat for once.

    flipkick661 25 November, 2015 @ 7:18 pm    

    Problem is, Sony doesn’t offer movie rentals or PS Now in the majority of european countries, so… Yeah…

    johnnycide 25 November, 2015 @ 8:19 pm    

    Good point well made sir. It’s a shame as the main reason for me keeping plus now i’s for discounts. The igc has become a husk of it’s former self now.

    Gotrek_74 25 November, 2015 @ 8:55 pm    

    Exactly. Even free avatars and themes which are exclusive to Plus subscribers would be something but they don’t want to give anything to PS4 owners seemingly.

cognac-vsop 25 November, 2015 @ 4:45 pm   24

talkin bout ” with PlayStation Plus, you can fight over dragons and kings this holiday season, rather than who gave the worst gifts…” hahaha it’s YOU who gave us the worst gift.

dark_angel69 25 November, 2015 @ 4:45 pm   25

Is Chris not doing the PS+ post anymore? Are you new?

Anyway looks like a better month compared to last month. Always wanted to play Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon but I don’t buy dlc or expansions so I never played it.

Can remember years ago a good few of us was asking for SSX and Chris saying he was trying to get it. Better late than never. 😛

Freedom Wars makes the Vita good this month for a change!!! I liked the game but didn’t finish it so I look forward to jumping back in.

    Otisha Sealy 25 November, 2015 @ 6:12 pm    

    New to the blog, yep 🙂

    dark_angel69 25 November, 2015 @ 6:14 pm    

    Welcome Otisha. Thanks for the reply. 😀

    LeftMonocle 25 November, 2015 @ 6:27 pm    


    CookieMonsterES 25 November, 2015 @ 6:28 pm    

    Welcome Otisha, thanks for bringing us the Plus info 🙂

    Good month for me too, I only own Blood Dragon and the PS4 selection is interesting enough.

    cognac-vsop 25 November, 2015 @ 6:42 pm    

    poor Otisha, these guys didn’t want to deal with the mob that’s out with their torches and pitch forks so they threw a new person in to deal wit it! hahaha. welcome to the blog though!

    Otisha Sealy 25 November, 2015 @ 6:58 pm    

    Hey Dark_Angel69, no thanks is necessary, but thank YOU for the welcome!

    Otisha Sealy 25 November, 2015 @ 7:01 pm    

    Hey CookieMonsterES (nice name :D), no problem. Thanks for the welcome! Glad you are looking forward to next months games.

    Otisha Sealy 25 November, 2015 @ 7:03 pm    

    Hey Cognac-vsop, I’m a gamer I know how passionate we can get about our games ;). I’m happy to write the blog, no one “threw me”. Thanks for the welcome 🙂

    Are you on Twitter Otisha? No worries, most of us behave, as Fred will surely assure you. Well at least I do. 😉


    Wait, Otisha is replacing Chris from now on?

Shadow_Soulheart 25 November, 2015 @ 4:46 pm   26

Is Black Friday Sale going live today?

    Matt14451 25 November, 2015 @ 5:00 pm    

    Is it Friday?

    Last-Rapture 25 November, 2015 @ 5:01 pm    

    I’m dreading what they have on ‘offer’ this time!

    Shadow_Soulheart 25 November, 2015 @ 5:18 pm    

    You can find Black Friday deals everywhere so it’s not strange to ask.

    Gotrek_74 25 November, 2015 @ 6:06 pm    

    Looking at the Black Friday offerings for PS America it is also a cas of weak offerings. Maybe it will be different in Europe but I’m not be odng my breath.

    Otisha Sealy 25 November, 2015 @ 6:18 pm    

    Not yet, Friday.

    Mojo__Man 25 November, 2015 @ 6:47 pm    

    Black Friday is a useless American “tradition”. Sick of it being everywhere now. The deals will be massively underwhelming.

    KaneTheGoth 25 November, 2015 @ 6:59 pm    

    Gotrek, the Black Friday deals for the NA store haven’t even been announced yet, are you referring to the current sale they have?

    Gotrek_74 26 November, 2015 @ 2:12 pm    

    @kane Yes,I am. It was reported on GameSpot as being the Black Friday deals for the US.

LordRastan 25 November, 2015 @ 4:47 pm   27

well, cant be good for everyone, but imho this is a good month, only ps4 still hesitates to take retail games… como on!! microsoft is going forward with superb offers and better games…

Anyway, on vita and ps3 is quite good, freedom wars was on my sights for a while, but desisted as hunter japanese games are not my kind of game -maybe this will change my perception-, and rocket birds, is an indie game not so pixelated, and contra style, so it’s worth a -free- try.

And ps3… man… you will force me to unbox my ps3 again… farcry blood dragon for free it’s very tempting….

any special gift on christmas as last years? it will be nice… since microsoft’s is given an extra game….

TheNarrator 25 November, 2015 @ 4:47 pm   28

woo, some nice looking PS3 games in there this month, SSX is a wintery one and Blood Dragon is pretty groovy too :D. Gauntlet sounds fun and the Vita games seem pretty awsome aswell! nice going Plus dudes 8).

getting a ‘Chapter 1’ kinda implies we’re only getting a fifth of a full game xD, but sure its still cool and as good as the rest 8D.

warensembler83 25 November, 2015 @ 4:47 pm   29

I don’t know the PS4 games, to be honest. I’ll try Gauntlet, I’ll pass on the Pt 1/5 game, though. Freedom Wars is a decent enough game for Vita, it gets boring/too grindy after several hours, but it’s ok if you get it “for free”.

madmanwithabox12 25 November, 2015 @ 4:49 pm   30

Freedom Wars is the best game this month by a margin.


Its a joke right?


I’m only interested in trying out Freedom Wars from this month’s games (I already have Blood Dragon).

medenko1975 25 November, 2015 @ 4:50 pm   33

Really really bad month in DECEMBER!

lightinside 25 November, 2015 @ 4:51 pm   34

Just the first episode of King’s Quest… You must be avoiding bankruptcy.

    Zengamerqwerty 8 December, 2015 @ 12:15 pm    

    What’s this kings quest anyway, look like a cheap game noone would pay for


I like this month, only got Hardboiled and would love to try the rest, but is the King’s Quest full game or only the first episode ?

    Otisha Sealy 25 November, 2015 @ 5:51 pm    

    It’s Chapter 1: A Knight to Remember 🙂

    Losiowaty 26 November, 2015 @ 1:57 pm    

    I really, really, really hope that this doesn’t mean that we will be getting the next episodes for the enxt 4 months O_o

    Losiowaty 26 November, 2015 @ 1:58 pm    

    I really, really, really hope that this doesn’t mean we will be getting the other episodes for the next 4 months O_o

    www-rambo-com 26 November, 2015 @ 3:01 pm    

    Chapter 1: A Knight to Remember is a full game?
    so… chapter 2, 3, 4 and 5 are more 4 different games?
    I do not understand why is considered an full game the 1º chapter of an game that is composed by 5 chapters.. can you explain to me?


    Chapter 1 is £7.99 and is about 5 1/;2 hours long.

    Much longer than your standard telltale adventure game episode. its also much more interactive then those game. there is actually puzzles. think of it as more like broken sword/monkey island then a modern telltale game.


Bunch of Craps for PS4!

Bgjknpqswvyu 25 November, 2015 @ 4:53 pm   37

Isn’t it weird that outside of these bunch of whiners that invest the comments section every time Plus is mentioned don’t seem to think of Plus as a bad service at all? In fact quite the opposite.

    Gotrek_74 25 November, 2015 @ 6:08 pm    

    What? I couldn’t comprehend this sentence at all.


    What are you basing that on out of interest?

    Personally I am fine with it and usually find at least one game to interest me, but I come from the 360 before games with gold, so getting anything more than online is a win for me.

    Bgjknpqswvyu 25 November, 2015 @ 7:04 pm    

    @Gotrek_74 I find reading actually helps in those circumstances.
    @Tee_Doff Most other mainstream gaming sites that aren’t PlayStation centric feel more positive about the service because they see it for what it is, getting 24+ games a year for £40 represents incredible value. Some still aren’t happy about online multiplayer been put behind Plus but the business model on PS3 was unsustainable in the long run.


    I’m sorry that I have some standards for what I get for my money. I’m sure once your old enough to work and don’t just have your parents pay for everything you’ll understand.

    Gotrek_74 26 November, 2015 @ 2:09 pm    

    I have no issue with reading and probably have a better command of the language than 80% of the English populace but I really couldn’t understand your point. If you could clarify for me what you meant then I promise I will comment again.

    FreeMorpheme 7 December, 2015 @ 8:58 pm    

    Rather ironically the OP didn’t bother to re-read his own comment. I think what he meant was:’Isn’t it weird that outside of these bunch of whiners that INFEST the comments section every time Plus is mentioned THE REST OF THE PSN COMMUNITY don’t seem to think of Plus as a bad service at all? In fact quite the opposite.’ Caps mine.


This is a horrible, horrible selection…


    CoolRichy007UK 25 November, 2015 @ 5:21 pm    

    im so upset at sony making ps4 worse each week im crying now

    madmanwithabox12 25 November, 2015 @ 10:07 pm    

    Either you’re blatantly lying or you need to face reality. If this makes you cry, I’d hate for you to see what the real world has in store for you. =O

Satimobile 25 November, 2015 @ 4:54 pm   39

Some great looking stuff on here, thanks very much guys!


Freedom wars is an amazing game,

DoYouLikeMyID 25 November, 2015 @ 4:56 pm   41

Hmm… I already own Freedom Wars, so that’s not too exciting for me, but it’s an absolutely amazing game for anyone who hasn’t played it yet! As for SSX and FC3: Blood Dragon, I may give those a try. Interesting picks. I don’t have much interest in Rocketbirds though. I doubt I’ll ever play that. As for the PS4 games… I’m not particularly interested in Gauntlet, but I guess it looks fine if you like that kind of game. And really? We get an incomplete game in our PS Plus lineup? (King’s Quest: Chapter 1) Seriously? That sucks. Big time.

I also find it really worrying that the PS3 and Vita games aren’t advertised at all. Even the last line of this article states that PS Plus gives you “access to 24 PS4 games a year” as if the PS3 and Vita games don’t even exist. I have a feeling that early in 2016, one month we just won’t get any PS3 or Vita games (and complete silence regarding this change), and we’ll be stuck with just the sub-par PS4 games… In fact, it could happen next month for all we know… It’s really making me reluctant about renewing my subscribtion. If that day indeed comes, and the PS4 games still haven’t improved, I’m definitely letting my subscribtion run out.

It would be great if we could get some clarity as to whether or not the 2 PS3 and 2 Vita games will discontinue being added to the IGC every month, anytime soon.

Great month!

PS4 section not even worth mentioning again, SSX does save it from being a complete fail like usual for me (already own Blood Dragon). But last-gen is you know… last-gen.. It’s mandatory for PS4 online too, not ps3. PS4 PLUS section needs some serious work, fast.. Way, way overdue.

Looking forward to Freedom Wars! And interested in Far Cry Blood,would probably be interested in Kings Quest if it was all episodes but I’ll give it a go.not a bad line up…unless you compare it to last December’s of course! Ah well,not tried last month’s games yet and too busy on Lego Jurassic world!:)


What’s more, I think it’s really sloppy that you write a paragraph and share a video for the first two games in the list, but don’t bother with the other four. You’re messing with us if you think those games are a bigger deal than Far Cry, Freedom Wars or even (at a stretch SSX.)


Xbox gold : van helsing ,thief, tomb raider, assassins creed black flag…


    … Adventures Van Helsing is coming to XB1?


    At this moment in time I’m glad I own both a PS4 and Xbox One.. Cause I’m really starting to think Sony like giving us the crappiest games for a service that just meant to be for a prescription of games EVERYBODY would enjoy.. Not just some…

    I think its time to take your heads out your asses and just implement PS3 BC already. stop lying about it because you still hope people adopt the whole idea of PS NOW being the future. In retrospect you’re turning into the company we hated MS for being the beginning of this gen.

    Making every more inconvenient for the consumer!

    Sony, you changed..

    Van Helsing would be great !!!


    WitWolfy you are clueless

    The cell processor pretty much makes standard backwards compatibility an impossibility. Your asking for a netbook cpu to emulate a faster cpu to play ps3 games.
    Its not gonna happen, not this gen.

    At least Sony doesnt give us the games twice on diferent months as Microsoft do. We have cross buy but each game counts as one. Microsoft repeat several months games previously on Gold. December gold games includes Van helsing and CastleStorm, both previously on One and 360


    I also own both systems, and the whining on both sides is hilarious. People here whining about XBox getting Thief and Tomb Raider, even though both games were on Plus months before they were on XBox Gold. Meanwhile, people on XBox forums are whining because both games have been on Gold twice (once for 360, once for the One). You literally can’t please some people.

    Neither of my subs has been a waste, I’ve got a bunch of excellent games I’d never have played before, and this month’s another good one for exclusive titles on both systems I want to play (Gauntlet here, Van Helsing on the XBox). Even if you literally only have an average of one game per month you’d want to play out of the selection, that’s still a bargain compare to even used prices. Keep it up, everyone!


Looking forward to Kings Quest, but can you clarify whether this is for JUST the first episode (and we have to buy the rest) or if it’s for the season?

King’s Quest Chapter 1 looks like poor advertisement for chapters 2-5 which will cost you big money anyway. Some developers give first chapter for free without psn plus.
[Sorry for my English]


How long is King’s Quest chapter?? If it’s anything like Telltale games chapters, it’s pretty lame of them only offering 1 chapter instead of the whole season.


1 part of an episodic game? That’s promotional material and should not be included in a pay-for service.

We’ll be getting betas next.

    Looks like is this is not for the players but give us 3 years and we will fix it. if we get ps plus betas whats next free dlc to games that aint good lol

    Stonesthrow 25 November, 2015 @ 5:19 pm    

    Well said.


    I’d be worried about the trend it could set.

    Chapter 2 next month? Chapter 3 in February? Chapter 4 in March? Etc.

    And then the next episodic game…

    CluckNuggets 25 November, 2015 @ 6:52 pm    

    Betas? Do you mean Tony Hawks Pro Skater 5?

    turniplord 26 November, 2015 @ 4:34 am    

    I would agree if this was a TellTale syle of game but they have done a really good job with the Kings quest episode – it is about 6-8 hours long, so longer than quite a few AAA games that have come out. Plus its retail price is about 8-10 quid, so not bad.

    We already got betas, remember Driveclub? =)
