Sony announced February’s PlayStation Plus lineup of digital console freebies, revealing that subscribers will receive free copies of Helldivers, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, and other standout titles starting next month.
PlayStation 4 owners with an active subscription to PlayStation Plus can expect to receive two free games in February. PS3 players will also get a pair of freely downloadable games, while PS Vita owners will enjoy three games free of charge as part of next month’s PlayStation Plus lineup.
The PlayStation 4, PS3, and PS Vita versions of Helldivers will be up for grabs for PlayStation Plus members starting next week. Developed by Magicka series creator Arrowhead Game Studios, Helldivers is an explosive twin-stick shooter that lets up to four players team up in local and online cooperative multiplayer modes.
Also on tap for PS4 owners next month is Nom Nom Galaxy, the latest entry in Q-Games’ PixelJunk series. Following up on acclaimed series predecessors like PixelJunk Monsters and PixelJunk Shooter, Nom Nom Galaxy boasts a unique gameplay mixture of platforming, sandbox exploration, and tower defense for up to four simultaneous players.
PS3 owners can look forward to a free digital copy of Codemasters’ racing sim GRID Autosport next month, along with Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, a one-on-one fighter from Guilty Gear studio Arc System Works featuring characters and settings from Atlus’ Shin Megami Tensei: Persona RPG series.
Along with Helldivers, PS Vita players will also receive a remake of the classic puzzler Lemmings and Funktronic Labs’ turn-based adventure game Nova-111 next month. All of February’s featured PlayStation Plus titles will be free to download for service subscribers when the PlayStation Store updates on February 2.
