In a new sizzle reel trailer the free PS4 games being offered by Sony for PS+ subscribers during the month of September 2018 has been revealed. Beyond the two main giveaways this month for PS4 there are also a number of titles being made available for free with ‘Cross Buy’ or ‘Cross Play’ features, VR, PlayLink functionality, and more.
While God of War III Remastered is certainly something that every gamer should experience at least once in their life, battling on top of gigantic titan enemies, killing gods from Greek mythology on a rage-filled and righteous quest, the inclusion of Destiny 2 will spark debate.
Other PS+ Games Included September 2018:
- Another World – 20th Anniversary Edition (PS4, PS3, Vita)
- QUBE Director’s Cut (PS4, PS3)
- Sparkle 2 (PS4, PS3, Vita)
- Foul Play (PS4, Vita)
- Knowledge Is Power (PlayLink Bonus Game)
- Here They Lie (PlayStation VR Bonus Game)
God of War III is an incredible game and perhaps the pinnacle of the entire series. Although the recent PS4 title reboots the series and managed to do so without killing the soul of its original titles, God of War III is actually the faster, bloodier, more brutal version of the franchise that fans remember best and fell in love with across the PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and PlayStation 3 versions of the game.
There’s room for both types of God of War games to exist in the franchise thankfully, but if you haven’t played these old games you should ignore the critics and give them a chance. They are truly gamer’s games with a lot more than meets the eye involved with their gameplay systems and levels. Near perfect game design meets the bad-ass of the PlayStation universe, Kratos, in the biggest God of War title ever made, and best of all – it’s free this month with PS+.
Cynicism around Destiny 2 regarding its heavy focus on lootbox economy, lack of content, withholding XP from players, further upsetting the balance of the already broken progression system and lack of features as well as critical improvements that took place during the development of the first title are just a few examples.
Putting Destiny 2 on PS+ also shows that Activision Blizzard may be growing desperate with Bungie’s failure to please their customers and need some way of plunging new players into the scenes in order to profit as much as possible before the inevitable reveal of a third Destiny title. Strangely enough, the footage used in Sony’s trailer for the upcoming PS+ version of Destiny 2 also has a small print disclaimer in it which reads “Footage captured on PC”.
PlayStation Plus is a subscription-based service required to play games online on the PS4 and includes free games that can be added to your library and downloaded right away, or at a later date, as long as you keep your PS+ subscription active. PS3, PSP, and PS Vita games will one day no longer provided in the future since Sony is getting ready to launch PlayStation 5 and is currently focused on PS4 and PS VR.
