February’s PlayStation Plus Games Now Available To Download
This month’s PlayStation Plus are available to subscribers from today and it’s a chunky month with a brand new PS5 game, a PS4 game with a next-gen upgrade and a low-key classic that should be checked out.
The full line-up is:
- Destruction AllStars (PS5) (Available until 6th April 2021)
- Control: Ultimate Edition (PS5/PS4)
- Concrete Genie (PS4/PSVR)
Destruction AllStars was initially announced alongside the PlayStation5 last summer and was planned to launch alongside the console in November. Sony took the decision to delay the game to give it an additional polish (and presumably a chance of success away from a certain webslinger & the Demon Souls remake). It now makes it’s appearance as a PlayStation Plus title. Based on the success of Fall Guys, this plan could work out well for the multiplayer crash-em-up.
Control: Ultimate Edition was met with some controversy when it was announced. On paper, a complete edition of last year’s Game of the Year contender with enhancements taking advantage of PS5 hardware sounds good. Except that the developers Remedy Entertainment wanted to charge for this and gave no upgrade options to existing players. By adding it to the PSPlus lineup does mitigate some of that negativity, if you have the base game, your saves won’t transfer to the upgraded version. Still, it’s always worth a second playthrough.
Concrete Genie is one of those games that looks amazing but you forget about. That’s not saying it’s a bad game, far from it, it just happens it released in October 2019 when there was a deluge of other games that demanded attention. The beautiful game has you play as Ash, a bullied teen who’s drawings spring to life, filling a desolate town with colour. What’s better is that Concrete Genie can be played in VR.
Remember to add your games to your library before 2nd March. Once added, they are yours to keep as long as you are subscribed to PlayStation Plus. If you’re struggling to get a PS5, you can add Destruction AllStars to your library through the PlayStation Store Website.
