New on PlayStation Plus in December: Gauntlet, Kings Quest, more

By: Otisha Sealy:
Winter is coming…. and so is next month’s batch of PlayStation Plus games. Are you ready to delve into epic battles against the forces of darkness, or maybe you’d rather play it a little safer with a light-hearted adventure? Well, you’re in luck because we have both bases covered – with PlayStation Plus, you can fight over dragons and kings this holiday season, rather than who gave the worst gifts.

I was expecting Sony to end the year with at least one AAA game for the PS4.

Oh well, those games look interesting.

Its great to know Zelda Williams is in King's Quest. Robin Williams was a legend. Rest in Peace.

King's Quest is AAA... I think.
Edit: the video was turned to private for some reason. Sorry about that.
This one works :

Balsanoid1151d ago (Edited 1151d ago )

Lol, only episode 1 available for free? Telltale regularly gives us episode 1 of their games for free outside of PS+... so it's supposed to be PS+ worthy for Sierra to give us only episode 1 of King's Quest? I would have been happy with the full season, sure! This is lame though.

the_dark_one1151d ago


well chapter 2 isnt even out yet, so it cant be given free yet. and the telltale games ep1 given out for free is almost always when the full season is out

Balsanoid1151d ago

@the_dark_one Ah, I see. Still seems like a cop-out choice though. They essentially are giving us a demo, regardless of whether the rest of the season is released or not.

Blastoise1151d ago

Gotta agree with Balsanoid. Giving us the first part of a five part episodic series is a bit of a piss take.

Freedom wars is a good choice though, but I bought that at launch.

FriedGoat1151d ago (Edited 1151d ago )

Kings quest episode 1 is much larger than a telltale episode.

Edit: Ah the classic disagree.

Walking dead ep 1

Kings Quest ep 1

K thnx bai.

ShutUpDonny1151d ago

While I agree that King's Quest is AAAish, the fact that is just the episode 1, defeat the purpose of having it on the IGC. I loved the game, I can't wait for the episode 2 (so many good childhood memories) and I hope the series fill gain more fans with this, but it's still some kind of marketing BS.

CuddlyREDRUM1151d ago

King's Quest is not AAA. It is almost the opposite of AAA. I almost think it was crowdfunded.

If you ever have to wonder if a game is AAA, it probably isn't.

Tobsesan1150d ago

It's not even close to AA

Tiqila1150d ago

Kings Quest was a lot of fun, sadly I already own it.

It really is more like a standalone game and much longer than an episode of a telltale game.

MajorLazer1150d ago

PS+ has been absolute garbage for a while now. Only reason I renew is to play online on Bloodborne

Agreed,.. Hell,.. Vita has way more interesting selection Freedom wars actually looks fun ,.. I'd take that over 3 hous of KQ (unless it was entire season)

FullmetalRoyale1151d ago (Edited 1151d ago )

Freedom Wars is dope. While I already own it(and imagine a lot of the hardcore vita owners do as well), I enjoy helping newer players to a game when events like this take place, so I'll be playing on it again in December.
My friend and I platinumed Diablo III together, and while I'm not in the mood for Gauntlet now, I'll definitely be grabbing it for later. I won't be dusting off my PS3 though. :)

Tiqila1150d ago

Kings Quest has at least twice the scope of a walking dead episode, took me 6hours to complete.

The storyline was closed, so you get the feeling of having completed the game rather than having to buy the next episode to get to know whats coming up next.

Hopefully other Kings Quest episodes will be free for plus members in the future.

Christopher1151d ago

Only 1st chapter of King's Quest. It's definitely not for everyone, but not a horrible modern-day point and click adventure game.

lelo2play1151d ago

Another crap month on PS+ for the PS4... as expected.

TwoForce1150d ago

Well, what do you expect ? Underwhelming ? Yes . Bad games ? No.

Deadlead1150d ago

What happened to PS Plus. Damn.

bouzebbal1150d ago

a guy who kills himself is no legend, sorry.

OT: Good line up overall. I always wanted to buy SSX on PS3 it looks interesting and i love the series. Perfect.

Where is the Christmas spirit Sony?

TwoForce1151d ago

Not just those games, but the Playstation Plus will have huge discount for every games.

caseh1150d ago

Yeah man, those massive saving that bring the prices of overpriced games down to a price where they are still more expensive to buy than online or in stores. *bravo*

Dirtnapstor1151d ago

Not quite Christmas yet...

chazjamie1150d ago

for playstation 3 owners, this is list is pretty awesome.

itsjustexuma1151d ago

There's a huge possibility we're going to get more games to download during PlayStation Experience

FPSRUSSIA1151d ago

im sure there saving the big ones for PlayStation Experience just like what they did with drive club.

RiPPn1151d ago

We got Garden Warfare free also..

RiseofScorpio1151d ago

Wasn't that to celebrate the 20th anniversary?

ZeoZan1151d ago

I'm thinking the same thing, I hope so...

Travis37081151d ago

SSX and Farcry 3 is a pretty good deal!

I'm disappointed with the PS4 selection tho

Could have been Farcry 4

Christopher1151d ago

It could have also been Witcher 3 or Fallout 4 for that matter...

It's all a matter of what deals they can make. Apparently it costs too much to go with other games at the moment.

The only downside I see here is the lack of cross-platform games this month.

TFJWM1151d ago (Edited 1151d ago )

Fallout 4 the month after it came out...A game that still costs more than a whole year of PS+...

Are you ok...?

Unreal011151d ago


You didn't get his comment. He was using Fallout just as an example for his point. He isn't saying we should get Fallout lol.

slappy5081151d ago

Ooh Ill definately take Kings Quest and Freedom Wars
