Next month’s selection of free games in the form of PlayStation Plus’ Instant Game Collection have been announced, and as usual it’s a good little selection with something for everyone, be that on PS4, PS3 or Vita.
First up, for PS4 is Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, which features four-player co-op story, in which players must work together to explore the temple, defeat hordes of enemies from the Egyptian underworld, solve devious puzzles and avoid deadly traps.
PS4 also sees Limbo, Playdead’s eerie black and white platformer where you step into the shoes of a young boy travelling a treacherous world in an attempt to discover the fate of his sister.
Alongside those the PS4 will also be getting Sound Shapes, a platformer where sounds and shapes seamlessly mesh together to create an unforgettable experience. You can even create your own levels, and compose music, by building environments and choosing enemies and obstacles. Sound Shapes is PS4, PS3 and PS Vita cross-buy compatible – so, free everywhere!
Another cross-buy title spanning all three platforms on the books is Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones. Described as a brilliant platforming adventure in which you play the role of a clone escaping a sinister and high-tech testing facility, Stealth Inc 2 tests both your brain and your reflexes over 60 varied levels linked together by a sprawling overworld, apparently.
As well as those two titles, PS3 players will also be able to get their hands on God of War: Ascension, which is a notable inclusion given the recently released God of War 3 Remaster.
Six months have passed since Kratos stood before the bodies of his wife and child, his hands stained with their blood – duped by Ares into killing the only people he ever loved. Sentenced to an eternity chained within a prison for the living damned, Kratos battles insanity at the hands of the Furies. He will be tested as he seeks freedom, redemption for his sins and vengeance for his family. Sounds cheery!
And finally, for PS3 and Vita, there’s CastleStorm Complete Edition, where medieval warfare meets 2D physics-based destruction! Controlling the battle in real time, you must harness the power of medieval artillery, manage a fearsome ground attack and cast powerful spells! CastleStorm features a story-driven solo campaign, a custom castle editor, online multiplayer, co-op modes and more.
