We already knew that PlayStation4 owners would be getting Injustice: Gods Among Us and Secret Ponchos as part of their PlayStation Plus subscriber instant game collections, along with the rather cool looking Secret Ponchos (which strikes me as a modern day Gunsmoke). Here’s a a look at what those toting the other PlayStation systems will be getting.
It’s not a bad line up. PlayStation 3 owners get the original Hitman trilogy, all hussied up with some new spit and polish. The newest Hitman game, Absolution, was one of the first games offered as part of the Instant Game collection. The other PS3 game is the bizarre, so-bad-its-good Deadly Premonition.
Hitman HD Trilogy (PS3)
Experience Agent 47’s classic hits, now in HD. Enter the mind of Agent 47, the world’s most deadly assassin. Staying anonymous, being smart and totally ruthless is the key to a perfect execution. Includes Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman: Contracts and Hitman: Blood Money.
Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut (PS3)
Revisit the mysterious town of Greenvale with Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut and discover more secrets, bask in the beauty with redefined graphics and move with greater freedom with a complete control overhaul.
Those toting Sony’s handheld get space Toweer defense Final Horizon, and the retro arcade shooter Titan Attacks!, which also happens to be cross-buy with the Ps3 and PS4, so you could count it as extra games for those platforms this month.
Final Horizon (PS Vita)
Final Horizon takes you on an epic story across far reaching planets and solar systems as you fight the mysterious and deadly Swarm. Described as “2 minute tower defense”, Final Horizon is a new take on the popular strategy genre. Combining fast paced action and deep strategy, you’ll need to keep your wits about you if you want to survive.
Titan Attacks! (PS4|PS3|PSVita)
Single-handedly turn back the evil invading Titan army! Drive back the aliens across the Solar System, and finally defeat them on their homeworld in this modern remix of classic arcade shoot ‘em ups. Titan Attacks! has the same easy-to-learn but hard-to-master gameplay of classic arcade shooters, but is packed full of new features, new strategies, and stylish neo-retro visuals.
Once again, we’ll reiterate that the PlayStation 4 gets its first AAA retail game, in NetherRealm’s superhero fighter Injustice, and its bajillionth Indie game, Secret Ponchos.
Injustice: Gods Among Us – Ultimate Edition (PS4)
Injustice: Gods Among Us – Ultimate Edition enhances the bold new franchise to the fighting game genre from NetherRealm Studios. Featuring six new playable characters, over 30 new skins, and 60 new S.T.A.R. Labs missions, this edition packs a punch. In addition to DC Comics icons such as Batman, The Joker, Green Lantern, The Flash, Superman and Wonder Woman, the latest title from the award-winning studio presents a deep original story. Heroes and villains will engage in epic battles on a massive scale in a world where the line between good and evil has been blurred.
Secret Ponchos (PS4)
Set in a stylized and iconic Wild West, Secret Ponchos pits players against one another in this fast paced and innovative new form of online combat.
• Experience a completely unique combat style that thrives in a wide range of modes from intense 1vs1 stand-offs to chaotic 4vs4 all-out team battles
• Master dynamic outlaw archetypes, each possessing a variety of deadly attacks and unique weapons
• Compete against others using skill and precision timing: dive in and out of range, string together devastating combos and take cover to break line-of-site in order to regroup or plan an ambush
That’s a pretty decent lineup, I think – and a heck of a lot better than December’s free games on the other systems.
