Following up from June’s offerings of Kill Zone 2 and the first season of Life is Strange, PlayStation Plus brings us yet another pair of AAA games for Sony’s flagship console alongside a solid couple of older games for the PlayStation 3 and two gratis indie titles for the PlayStation Vita.
Direct the actions of 9 teenage friends as they try to survive a horrific encounter with a deadly creature in this unique survival horror / b-movie simulation. Designed with a unique Butterfly Effect mechanic, Until Dawn challenges players to make split-second decisions that alter the course of the game’s narrative – ensuring that you’ll never see all the content the game has to offer in one playthrough.
Also joining Until Dawn is Telltale Game’s full season of Game of Thrones- based on the popular A Song of Fire and Ice universe by J.R.R Martin. Set between the third and fifth seasons of the television series, this original work focuses on the family members of House Forrester. Like other Telltale titles Game of Thrones allows players to make a number of dialogue & action choices that can have an impact on the game’s narrative. This six episode fantasy tale was so successful that a season 2 is currently in development.
PlayStation 3 owners can indulge in one of Capcom’s underrated fighting series that time has somewhat forgotten with Darkstalkers Resurrection. This collection includes up-rezzed and online-enabled versions of Night Warriors: Darkstalker’s Revenge and Darkstalkers 3 with the same net-code developed by Iron Galaxy Studios that was used for Street Fighter III Third Strike Online. Owners of Sony’s longest support console can also enjoy the quirky animal platformer Tokyo Jungle as well.
Vita owners might not get a steady supply of content from Sony 1st party developer these days (considering that Sony has referred to the handheld as a “legacy platform”) but two games are coming to Sony’s portable – Element4I and Don’t Die Mr. Robot.
Here’s the full line-up as posted by the PlayStation Blog:
Until Dawn, PS4
Game of Thrones, PS4
