A new month is on the horizon and that means a new set of FREE games on the PS Plus: Instant Games Collection. From April the 2nd 2014 you’ll be able to download a host of free games for either your PS4, PS3 or PS Vita. So let’s check out what’s entering the Instant Game Collection and what is sadly leaving.
Fans of the Metal Slug series will feel right at home here. Mercenary Kings is a retro inspired side scrolling shooter full of collectibles and power ups to annihilate your enemies. Features 4 player co-op online or locally.
“In this frantic 2D action game, you are part of the Mercenary Kings, the most skilled team of warriors-for-hire on Earth, but when your comrades have fallen and the fearsome forces of CLAW have seized an island-wide top secret Laboratory Base, you must do what it takes to stop them.”
A surprising entry to Playstation Plus as I don’t believe we’ve ever had a football game. With Fifa dominating the football game market Pro Evo has struggled to hold it’s place in the limelight. Perhaps with this freebie they can sway many fans back to the Pro Evo series. Footy enthusiasts will be happy to know they can play in the World Cup with host nation Brazil thanks to the recently released World Challenge DLC.
PS3 & PS VITA
Yes, this month we are going to see some cross buy titles so if you want any of the below titles for either your PS Vita or PS3, well, you can.
Coming to PS3 & PS Vita is the fabulous Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time. This is the fourth in the series for our masked criminal mastermind and this time his very ancestry is at stake. Someone has gone back in time and interfered with Sly’s long family line of Master Thieves by having them imprisoned. It’s up to you and your comrades to undo the damage. At Twinstickgaming we loved this game and if you have any doubts check out our review.
Hotline Miami is a top-down-gore-fest of a shooter. Certainly not for the faint hearted, this ultra violent game has a host of characters to choose from, with differing abilities and odd animal face masks. Players will often enter through a building and take out every bad guy in sight, but a word of caution – going in guns blazing doesn’t always pan out. Choosing the right moment to kick the door down could be the difference between living or dying. Hotline Miami also has one of the coolest video game soundtracks of all time.
Moto GP 13 is a motorbike racing sim with a real emphasis on challenge. This racing sim is as real as it gets so for those who expect to speed their way around corners without crashing to their death may want to think again. This one is really for the racing enthusiasts.
