Sony Computer Entertainment has revealed the lineup of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers for the month of February. Highlights include Thief and Yakuza 4 on the PlayStation 3, Transistor on the PlayStation 4, and Rogue Legacy on the PS Vita.
PS4 owners are being treated to one of the most beloved games of 2014 in the form of Transistor. As the spiritual successor of the critically acclaimed Bastion, Transistor is an action RPG featuring a silent protagonist and a sword that does all the talking. It retains the excellent soundtrack that Supergiant Games has come to be known for.
Those who still have their PS3 will be able to enjoy both Yakuza 4 and Thief. Yakuza 4 is an open world action RPG similar to Sleeping Dogs, except that people speak Japanese instead of awful Cantonese. Like all games in its genre it features plenty of action and sidequests featuring activities that most gamers probably wouldn’t do in real life.
Thief is a revival of the series that began in 1998. The first person view favours stealth over running in and stabbing everything to death. While it didn’t reach the same heights of the original Thief: The Dark Project, the game is still a good title for those who would rather hide in the shadows.
Finally, Rogue Legacy is being made available for PS Vita. The rogue-like platformer is one of the hardest games ever made and players should get used to dying multiple times. Of course, any gold accumulated by each playthrough is also passed down to the next character to use for powerups; and patience is greatly rewarded in this game.
These are not all the games that PlayStation has made available for PS Plus subscribers, and it has a full list over on the PlayStation blog.
