Sony’s upping its game with PS Plus by making available two games per month moving forward, and that’s per platform. Let’s check out June 2014′s offerings and learn more about Sony’s new strategy below the break.
As the service turns 4 years old, Sony wanted to offer more (I suspect it’s also because Microsoft has unabashedly stolen Sony’s PS4 model with Games with Gold for Xbox One), and so the firm will offer two games per month for PS3, PS Vita, and of course PS4.
And now, June’s offerings:
Trine 2: Complete Story (my PS4 review here) is a puzzle platformer set in a gorgeous fantasy world, where you’ll switch between heroes (a thief, warrior and mage) to complete your journey. Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate merges the campaigns of Pixlejunk Shooter 1 and 2 and wraps them up in fancier visuals, plus some extra perks like cross-play and cross-save.
On PS3, Plus members get NBA 2K14 — just in time for the NBA finals. The latest in the franchise features a new Path to Greatness starring the reigning NBA champion LeBron James. Sly Cooper and pals are back in Thieves of Time — since it’s a cross-buy title, Plus members will get both the PS3 and Vita versions next month.
Finally, PS Vita owners get Terraria and Mutant Mudds Deluxe. Terraria is a procedurally generated sandbox game where you’ll build crazy structures and fight insane boss monsters, while Mutant Mudds Deluxe is a spin on the traditional 2D platformers of years past – they’ve got the art style and chiptune tracks down, but you can also hop into a third dimension with a nifty jetpack. Jetpacks are cool.
The full quencher’s to be had on the US PS Blog.
