The July PlaystationPlus freebies have been announced, and fans of decision based games are in for a treat.
First up, PS Plus members will get Supermassive Games’ filmic horror Until Dawn, which follows the classic tale of eight teenagers trapped in an isolated cabin. If you’ve ever shouted at the stupidity of horror film characters making classic mistakes, you’ll enjoy facing those same decisions under pressure (and possibly falling victim to the same pitfalls). It plays like a movie, with some minor exploration and tense quick-time events.
Fans of Telltale Games or George RR Martin’s epic fantasy series will enjoy the second big freebie, the season pass to Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series. This story follows House Forrester across multiple family members as they play the game of thrones in the same era as the main books and the HBO series. That means you’ll see some of your favourite (and most hated) characters, like Tyrion Lannister or Ramsay Bolton. Not their best work in my opinion, but it’s a good freebie.
On PS3 this month you can get Tokyo Jungle, a bizarre survival game set in post-apocalyptic Tokyo overrun with various animals. It’s as quirky as they come, and features a healthy dosage of Pomeranian cuteness. We also get the PS3 Darkstalkers Ressurection, which combines Darkstalkers 3 and Night Warriors for a classic fighter with online functionality.
For PS Vita we’re getting Element4l, a lovely puzzle platformer based on the four elements, and the colourful arcade-style Don’t Die, Mr. Robot, which will have you hooked on chaining fruit explosions as you compete for top scores.
All round its not a bad haul this month, here is the full list;
Until Dawn (PS4)
Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series (PS4)
Tokyo Jungle (PS3)
Darkstalkers Resurrection (PS3)
Element4l (PS Vita)
