Sony has announced the games that will make up the free Instant Game Collection lineup for PlayStation Plus owners in April 2015. The rundown is actually pretty solid, and you can see it highlighted in video form in the clip that sits above this paragraph.
The PlayStation Blog also offered a written rundown of each game, which platforms it belongs to and its description. Here’s that.
Tower of Guns (PS4, PS3)
A game that needs little introduction. Why? Because it’s a tower filled with guns! Over-the-top in all the right ways, try to survive this tower with random enemies, bosses, power-ups, and a boatload of bullets.
Never Alone (PS4)
This beautiful puzzle adventure tasks you with guiding Nuna, a native Alaskan girl, through breath-taking environments to save her village. Also, you get to travel with a fox! Can’t get much better than a pet fox.
Players take control of Corvo Attano, a bodyguard framed for murder and imbued with powerful abilities to seek revenge. This game is all about player choice, and feeling awesome while executing extreme stealth maneuvers.
Aaru’s Awakening (PS3, PS4)
What started as a school project for a team of students in Iceland is now a gorgeous platformer about navigating treacherous terrain with well-timed teleports.
Killzone Mercenary (PS Vita)
View the iconic war against the Helghast from a mercenary’s point of view, and jump into a robust multiplayer mode to show how good (Or bad?) you actually are.
MonsterBag (PS Vita)
An adorable puzzle game about a bag-shaped monster named V trying to reach his friend Nia without scaring the pants off of people. May or may not include a battle of wits, skill, and the inevitable apocalypse.
I actually have my eye on a few of these games. First, from personal experience, I can tell you that Dishonored is a great (albeit aging) game for the PlayStation 3. You should absolutely give it a crack if you haven’t yet. I can also say the same for Never Alone.
Tower of Guns and MonsterBag were already on my list of titles to try, so I’ll certainly be snapping those up instantly as well.
The games will be available starting next Tuesday, April 7. Anything have you excited?
