US PS Plus: Soul Sacrifice Free for Members

Kristine Steimer // Sr. Community Specialist writes: One of the most critically acclaimed PS Vita titles, Soul Sacrifice, is now available in the Instant Game Collection. Created by Keiji Inafune, best known for his work on the Mega Man franchise, this action RPG pits you against an evil sorcerer. The question is, how are you going to defeat him when you’re locked up in a fleshy cage? A talking book named Librom (it reminds me of the spell book in Hocus Pocus) is the answer. Librom will transport you back to past events, also known as Phantom Quests, so you can train and develop your power. The game really shines with its “save or sacrifice” combat mechanics, where you’ll need to make key decisions about what you need most (i.e. more health or more magic), or choose to unleash a devastating black rite spell by destroying part of your body. The best way to grasp the game is to try it out, so get to downloading when this becomes free for PS Plus members tomorrow! (PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Soul Sacrifice)

I saw friend of my mine playing it and it was great, I thought about buying it but I didn't at the end, saving for ps4. I hope this game will be in EU IGC.

And people say EU PS+ is better ...I want this :'(

It will most likely end up on EU ps+.
We just gotta wait a little.
I believe both American & EU gets good games.

Such a great game! I platinumed it and enjoyed doing so.

Give it a chance to grow on you, I wasn't feeling it at first, but after dedicating some time to it, I grew to love it.

The online is where it's at!

I remember waiting for the demo of this game to hit the PSN vita store and it didn't launch until Wednesday morning... it was the longest wait ever!

Sweet. I skipped on this one......till now

Even though I wanted to buy a copy of this title I got really psyched when I read "....now available"

I grabbed my Vita while I read up to "....tomorrow!"

....then let out an audible awwwwh of disappointment.

Looking forward to tomorrow though and this will give me time to figure out how to make space on my memory card.

Would love it if Sony (as well as MS and Nintendo) would update their stores constantly, ala Steam.

I hate the needless wait for store refreshes. There should always be a fresh stream of content and price changes, IMO.

I agree with you, but I think they are working to continue to improve the service. I think they've come a long way so far. They each have their advantages and disadvantages though IMO. Which is why I use PSN for some things, Steam for others, and still pick up physical copies for my collection when I can.

@nope I did both endings. The Save ending is just sad.

Man PSN Plus is worth every penny. So far I have beaten 3 games that is valued more than a full year of service.
DanielGearSolid  +   397d ago
If that Ultimate Bundle is really coming I gotta start downloading these games so I dont miss out
Insomnia_84  +   396d ago
You don't even have to download them. Just start the download and cancel it. They will be there in your download list forever ready for when you can play them. That's what I do with everything that's frre with PS+.

Critically acclaimed? Soul Sacrifice is a good game and I'm looking forward to it but it isn't critically acclaimed. It just has a 78 on metacritic.

...and neither does any other monster hunter-like game got that score. Even monster hunter games for the PSP got low scores. for 78, Soul Sacrifice has proven to have built something awesome and comparing that to other rehashes of monster hunter past, "critically acclaimed" suits this awesome game good.
cpayne93  +   397d ago
I never said monster hunter was critically acclaimed. Soul Sacrifice was met with positive reception, but it was not critically acclaimed. Critical acclaim implies that the critics, on average, gave the game very high reviews. Critically acclaimed is just an incorrect term to use here.
GuruStarr78  +   396d ago
78 is a pretty good score on metacritic. People seem to forget that 5 is an average game..
cpayne93  +   396d ago
Yes. 78 is "pretty good". Not critical acclaim. Don't understand why people are disagreeing with me.

Sony took alot of my money on the launch day of the PS4, the time I was waiting for it, I bought myself the vita not just for the games but also for the remote play feature. Later today going out to retails to find a bigger memory card and also buy persona 4 golden :) dam sony stop taking my money lol
Toon_Link  +   396d ago
You are a smart man, bigger memory and P4G are must haves for any Vita owner.
leahcim  +   396d ago
YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!
SpiralTear  +   396d ago
I've heard good, if not great things about this game. Definitely a download for me!
blackblades  +   396d ago

RU-SIX  +   396d ago
