It’s that time of year again when the PlayStation Plus update has been revealed so what have Sony Computer Entertainment got in store for us this time? Well, with three formats being supported now there’s a wide range of games on offer for PS4, PS3 and most importantly PS Vita owners coming up in the next few weeks…
Starting with the daddy of the family, the new game for the PS4 for January will be Don’t Starve from Klei Entertainment. Set in a world of science and magic, Don’t Starve is a wilderness survival game where you play as Wilson an intrepid gentleman scientist who is trapped by a demon and transported into this dark and mysterious world. You must learn to exploit the environment and the inhabitants you will encounter if you want to have any chance of getting back home!
The big game for PS3 owners is Capcom’s DMC, the latest entry in their Devil May Cry series. You play as Dante, a young man caught between worlds. The action plays out in Limbo City, a place secretly controlled by all-powerful demons. It’s a cracking action title, and a real work out for the thumbs – just the thing for burning off that Christmas excess. That’s not all though as it’s being joined by Borderlands 2. In this acclaimed sequel, you jump into the story of four new Vault Hunters as they fight to free Pandora from the clutches of Handsome Jack, the brilliant, charismatic, and utterly despicable CEO of the Hyperion Corporation.
Now onto the PS Vita and from Sony’s Japan Studio is the superb Soul Sacrifice. Prepare yourself for a brutal combat experience where every decision made has significant consequence. You take on the role of a slave who stumbles upon a forbidden book that allows its readers to relive epic battles between sorcerers and monsters of the past. In order to use the magic during fierce battles, the player must be willing to make a sacrifice in exchange – ranging from personal belongings, a limb, or even a life. What price will you pay for power?
Not enough for you? How about Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend. The latest title in the franchise offers the most substantial BlazBlue experience to date including all previous DLC characters as standard, as well as brand new game modes, new stories to play through, and the all new playable character, Relius Clover. Relius Clover and his robotic puppet Ignis, join the fight with 23 epic scenarios to play through.
