Helldivers and Nom Nom Galaxy headline February PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection

1 min read


Helldivers is one of our favourite co-operative action games from 2015. It’s a tough-as-nails, fun-as-hell isometric twin stick shooter that has you playing as a team of bad-asses trying to liberate planets from both synthetic and organic tyranny.

In our review we said:

“Helldivers is hopelessly addictive and brilliantly brutal. You will find yourself playing with a gleeful smile throughout, either thanks to crushing foes with your drop shipped turret or because of shooting your enemy with bullets full of freedom. Fast-paced and humorous with deep combat, this space romp should be required in every PS4 owner’s library.”

And now it looks like it may end up in every PS4 owner’s library, because it’s headed to PlayStation Plus’ Instant Game Collection.

That’s according to the PlayStation store in a few Euro territories, which seems to have gone live prematurely – which showed this image:


Joining Helldivers will be Nom Nom Galaxy, another of the Pixel Junk games. We didn’t like that one nearly as much.

“Nom Nom Galaxy offers some fairly interesting additions to the genre while also attempting to critique Capitalism and human excess. It can be entertaining for a while, but just doesn’t do enough to stop that ‘samey’ feeling from creeping in all too quickly.”

Helldivers has cross platform play between PS4, PS3 and the Vita, so it’ll be playable on those – but we have no idea what other games will hit Sony’s “legacy” systems.

    Cross platfork play? So I can play on my PS4 and OvG on his Vita in the same game?

          Lol Pieter, I’ve spent a lot of timing playing Helldivers. I wouldn’t call it shit. And what do you call the XBox Gold line up?

            So Helldivers is not too bad if you like them top down shooters but WTF is a Nom Nom Galaxy??!! I’ll simply call XBox Live’s line up “1000% better” thank you very much!???? Just go and look at todays sponsored article on PSN’s free games, I listed the Xbox One’s free games this year so far…..AWESOME!

    A lot of people are moaning about plus this month but I personally see this one as the best one in a long while, purely because of helldivers. I was also teetering on the edge of buying it, but convincing my raid buddies to stop dropping cash into warframe and into another co op game has been difficult. Now they have no excuse.
