PS Plus in February includes Persona 4 Arena Ultimax and Grid Autosport

2 min read


We told you yesterday that you’ll soon be able to dish out a serving of Liber-Tea with Helldivers on PlayStation 4, as the headlining PlayStation Plus game. It’s certainly one of our favourites – and great big, enjoyable co-op romp. It’s a must for fans of cheesy sci-fi (especially Starship Troopers), decidedly brutal gameplay and killing things in the name of freedom.

We also told you that soup was up in Nom Nom Galaxy –which has your PS4 games covered. But what about the rest? What games would PlayStation 3 and Vita owners get?

Here’s the full line-up of games coming to the service on February 2″

  • Helldivers (PS4/PS3/PS Vita)
  • Nom Nom Galaxy (PS4)
  • Persona 4 Arena Ultimax (PS3)
  • Grid Autosport (PS3)
  • Lemmings Touch (PS Vita)
  • Nova 111 (PS4/PS3/PS Vita)

It’s worth noting that the edition of Helldivers you’ll be getting is the Democracy Strikes Back edition, which includes that DLC. PlayStation 3 owners get Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, the fighting game spinoff of the Persona Series – itself a spin-off of the Shin Megami Tensei series. It’s a pretty damned good fighting game in its own right, though it’ll obviously hold more value to you if you’re familiar with Persona.

The offering is rounded up with Grid Autosport, while Vita owners get to play with their lemmings. Also available will be Nova 111 from Curve studios.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

      Have you played Styx yet?

      • Pieter Kruger

        Nope, read some mixed reviews though….

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Yeah I read that too, I got it over xmas because it looks okay. Just started its predecessor last weekend, played for maybe an hour, & the combat system is a bit weird & will take some getting used too.

            Not a great fan of stealth games tbh, not even MGS really…..

  • HvR

    Last month’s was okay and now we are back to meh.

    Nice choices from PS side this month. Stix was “interesting” but I didn’t play it long enough to be honest, so I’ll give it a miss on xbone. EA access needs to start adding new games to its roster.
