Five games that could hit PS Plus on PS4 this year

PlayStation Plus has been a staple in our diet for just over 18 months now, bringing fresh meaning to the word back catalogue and destroying people’s free time the world over. But is it possible to predict what might be coming soon to PlayStation Plus?

This time we'll be taking a look at the newest member of the PlayStation family, the PS4.

I think Assassins creed Black Flag could eventually hit PS plus this year. That's the only one I am would really enjoy playing for free.

I doubt it'll be this year, maybe the end of next. Us getting AC 3 1 year later was to show up Xbox getting AC2, lol

And I don't see why everyone's thinking knack will come to PS Plus, Sony plasters it everywhere, only games with metacritic of 70+ (althoughthe EU rep messed up and said 80)
Knack has a meta rate of like 54, iirc so it's not going to get it, unless they go against their own policy....

CertifiedGamer1393d ago

Even though I am not a fan of Knack, I can estimate why Knack will be on Plus. Sony is currently bundling a code for Knack in Japan which gives it high probability that Sony will throw it over the Plus members. It isn't getting the same love in the USA as compared to other franchises and Sony doesn't seem to mind giving it to there fans over seas so chances are that it can end up being a Plus game.

Tomb Raider Definitive Edition is a sure bet.

I would love to see Heavenly Sword come to PS3's PS+.

Knack will (I think sooner rather than later). Killzone I am unsure about. It sold well and it will have free DLC (last time I heard it would get the maps free). So it wouldn't be a big think for the PS4. I think AC:Black Flag will. DLC will be a big reason why Ubisoft will do it.

I'd take Knack for sure. It got crapped on, but the twitch streams made me want to pick it up.

Mr_Writer851393d ago

I (very stupidly) actually put time and effort into getting the Platinum for Knack.

It's not a great game, and on hard and very hard it can get stupidly irritating.

You know when you play a game and you die loads and you feel like every time you die it was cheap?

It's that sort of game.

Is it as terrible as some reviews and fanboys make out? No.

However play it on easy you will enjoy it more, and don't try the plat if you get annoyed easily. I'm a pretty laid back guy but even I got a little heated at some points.

@Mr_Writer I agree to a point, but on easy, it is way too easy. Normal is a challenge for some enemies if their weakness isn't clear, which irks me. But time and patience can get you through a level easily.

I still say it deserves somewhere between a 6 and a 7. Its far from great, but far from horrible. I like the replay value it has for collecting relics and gadget parts. But it does start to get boring after awhile. The game has a good concept but it doesn't seem to have been executed as well as it could have. If they made it open world, in the way the first Jak was, and more of a platformer I think it could have gone better.

Knack is actually VERY unlikely to appear on PS+, they have a policy that games appearing have to be over 70% rated on metacritic, Knack is not even close to 70%

CertifiedGamer1393d ago (Edited 1393d ago )

They gave us Contrast which scored a 62% on metacritic and was a game that was already released on 360 and PS3. I am sure Sony knew it wouldn't score anywhere near the 70s

iamnsuperman1393d ago

They may not like to buy <70 games (that is how plus functions and the policy makes a lot of sense because of the monetary input needed for it to work) but this is a Sony game. They just need to put it on.

Clover9041393d ago

I still believe the reason Basement Crawl was delayed is because it'll be the ps4 plus game of March. Wouldn't be surprised if Daylight is April's plus game. Sony announced Secret Ponchos would be a Plus game, though we don't know the release date for it.

As for bigger titles, I imagine Plus will offer one big title that sticks around for 6 months or a year, and a smaller indie title every month. We all know Driveclub will be on Plus, so I wouldn't expect another big title on Plus for a long time.

admiralvic1393d ago

As I posted in another topic, Polygon reported Secret Ponchos would be the April plus game. While they're not the most reliable of sources, we do know for a fact it will be a plus game and the site says it is releasing in Q1. Ignoring the fact April is Q2, it might be delayed a few days so it could be the April plus game.

As far as Drive Club goes, I wouldn't consider that a "big one". To me, Drive Club PS Plus edition sounded like a nice way to offer a big game for free, without offering a big game for free. I think a lot of people have started to forget that it is a stripped down version of the game and falls in line more with when Starhawk wen free with Plus. That is to say, Starhawk was the single player and you could buy the multiplayer. So while some of Drive Club is free, you would still need to purchase the game to get the full experience unlike a lot of other games that have gone free.
