PlayStation Plus: Limbo Free for Members

Kristine Steimer's Avatar + Posted by Kristine Steimer on May 26, 2014 // Sr. Community Specialist

I’ll be honest with you, in general I won’t play creepy/horror games because I’m a total wuss and they give me nightmares. However, when Limbo came around I pushed past my fears and gave it a try, and I’m really glad I did. Yes, it gave me the heeby-jeebies, but it also took me on a really cool journey with interesting puzzles and extremely subtle storytelling. Despite its cartoon art style, Limbo nails a creepy atmosphere with its sound direction and limited color palette of black, white and shades of grey. You can download Limbo on PS Vita after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 5/27.

Another fun bonus for our Plus members this week is a Battlefield 4 timed trial which you can read more about here.

+1 to a bad month.
Then again I bought most of them, or almost did.

Oh well, not enough to cancel my subscription just yet.

Well, i think we need a flash sale urgently…

I wish the Vita mainstays UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss, WipEout 2048, and Gravity Rush were the ones leaving, not the PS3 ones…

As if I didn’t already have a crap ton of JRPGs to play (Tales of Symphonia on PS3, Chrono Trigger and Cross, FINAL FANTASY X|X-2 HD Remaster, and Conception 2 on Vita, not to mention Danganronpa and next week’s Hyperdimension Neptunia PP), that MIND=0 discount is…interesting…..

Hell, I even had to delete X-2 from my Memory Card because it was just taking up space, and I wasn’t really gonna play it anyway till I finish X.

Seriously?! This is what we’ve been waiting for?! What a disappointment! And nothing for ps4? Come on, its been weeks since we’ve gotten a free game. Focus at least a little bit on your newest console!

Seriously P.S plus was suppose to give players each month new games and it looks like they backing on there promise come on Sony keep your word every month there should be something for the ps4 and 3 not just for the vita !

@roddy281

You are aware this is still May, right? You got a PS4 game this month. I believe it was stick It To The Man. June’s offerings hasn’t been announced yet. That should be coming this Thursday.

+ ratchetdude231 on May 26th, 2014 at 9:16 am said:

it would be awesome if they add Killzone Shadow fall and Knack next month but I am guessing they are gonna just add Knack as their yearly game and have some weird Indie game not

As for Limbo. for Indie titles it’s up there.
Played it a little, but hard to have enough peace to get into it.

Odd……….payed for mine and do not regret it, even if it is IGC.
The rest of you get it free, whats the problem?

+ ratchetdude231 on May 26th, 2014 at 9:18 am said:

also could someone tell me when well sony reveal the PS plus in June

Weakest month all year for PS+. I had hoped that you had gotten over your fixation with indie games, but I was wrong.

Only month this year that I haven’t wanted anything you offered. I am never going to be interested in indie games that I can get for a buck on Android.

Simple question.
Why not make PS4 games available to download on the PS3-Vita( at least IGC )?

*For those without a computer, or an HD t.v.*

+ duke301 on May 26th, 2014 at 9:25 am said:

I’ve already had Limbo for quite a while, but I’d also agree that it is a good game to add to Plus! For anyone who hasn’t tried it out yet, I would definitely urge you to do so. It really is an entertaining little game. Also, I noticed that LBP: Karting and Uncharted 3 being removed from the IGC. I hope this means that you guys have some pretty good titles in store for next month.

+ saab01 on May 26th, 2014 at 9:25 am said:

Knack for ps4 next week.

Just wondering why xcom isn’t leaving

Hopefully beyond two souls will be added also if we got Dishonored, twisted metal and crisis 3 than it would be a good month.

I wonder what the second ps4 game will be any guesses anyone?

+ jibjab79 on May 26th, 2014 at 9:26 am said:

I just hope June’s IGC will be a lot better than April and May, Seems like Playstation Plus gets more members, so they throw these type of games at us.

+ saab01 on May 26th, 2014 at 9:27 am said:

@59

Highly unlikely killzone would be added

My guess is knack and sons new indie game


71

Best part about this week is seeing that those PS3 games are leaving the collection finally. Wonder what will take their places.

Talking about PS4 indie in IGC, at the E3 press conference last year, Jack Tretton announced that, in addition to Driveclub PS Plus Edition, we will be getting Don’t Starve, Outlast and Secret Ponchos. It seems no one mentioned the last one in relation to PS4 ever since. According to wikipedia, it was announced as PS4-exclusive, but Google shows that Steam early access will start in summer. What gives?

+ FifthDream on May 26th, 2014 at 10:05 am said:

The discount on Mind Zero has convinced me to get it, even though i’m not too far into Demon Gaze. I like the art style a lot. I’ll give it a go!

+ raven6093 on May 26th, 2014 at 10:07 am said:

More excited to see Uncharted 3 leaving as that leaves room for hopefully a top tier AAA title in June!

ackkkk im requesting to cancel my pre order of mind zero on amazon. as much as i despise digital for the vita 13$ off for a game that prob wont resell well when i beat it i have to jump on. though im weary of it being 27$ right when it comes out

+ JehovahsWitless on May 26th, 2014 at 10:13 am said:

I have to say that I’m not impressed at all with this week’s releases and sales. Honestly, the non-flash sales this entire month have been a let-down for me.

Granted, this just means that I spend more time on the games I already own.

Still, I’m expecting big news this month, since E3′s always been a traditional “big announcement” time for Sony, in regards to PS+ goodies.

+ firebert42 on May 26th, 2014 at 10:16 am said:

IGC refresh inbound! :)


79

+ raziel2097 on May 26th, 2014 at 10:24 am said:

Quite honestly, this is a poor effort from Sony. With Microsoft introducing Xbox One Live Gold Offers and some decent games this month I would’ve expected Sony to come up with something at least equal to MS’ offering. Limbo has already been a freebie several months ago, so this is nothing new and quite pointless having a whole one hour available to play for BF4.

Wow, there is a whole lot of complaining in this comment thread when the article is just a simple PS+ update.

Looks like we’re gonna get 2 ps4 games this month! Doing it big for E3 as usual… CAN’T WAIT!


83

+ guillebogard on May 26th, 2014 at 10:31 am said:

It is relatively safe asume that 2 other Sony games are going to take the places of Uncharted 3 and LBP Karting the same way they did it before with Infamous 2 and LBP 2. The question is wich ones and if XCOM will be out or not, replaced by another sony game or another third party game?
If i have to take a guess, I would go with Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale and God of war Ascension, although that last one is unlikely to happen but who knows? I think is a safer call than The last of us…


84

+ problemchild84 on May 26th, 2014 at 10:32 am said:

I believe that Secret Ponchos is going to be part of the IGC for PS4 in the month of June. I was watching an interview with the devs the other day and I’m pretty sure that is what they said. The game (Secret Ponchos) looks like a blast and I personally can’t wait to play it.

On another note I do agree with most people on here about changing the IGC on Vita, as the games on there now have been there seemingly forever. That being said though I do have about 40 games on my Vita, so I have no shortage of things to play.

Does anyone know the release date for the last of us remake?And sony were are the games for the ps4?

I wish we could of got Limbo for the PlayStation 3 as well. : (

+ klassymike on May 26th, 2014 at 10:50 am said:

@ davidxraw

Limbo has already been a part of the IGC, a long time ago, and since they don’t repeat the games offered, your best bet, is to wait for a sale and buy it.


88

+ zingakun on May 26th, 2014 at 10:57 am said:

With that bunch of games rotating out of the IGC, I’m eager to know what’s coming in the next months… and E3 coming to top it all!! \o/


89

+ ThumbsOfSteel74 on May 26th, 2014 at 10:59 am said:

Limbo (PS3) was a part of the IGC in EU at the end of 2012, but I don’t think it was ever made available here in NA. Could be wrong, though.

Anyway it’s been cheaper than dirt several times, so yeah just snag it the next time it comes around.

+ saab01 on May 26th, 2014 at 11:00 am said:

Watch that the yearly game will be

Knack on ps4

PS3
Playstation all stars
Beyond two souls

Still don’t know why xcom wouldn’t be leaving since it’s been a year


91

+ DarkDuckJustice on May 26th, 2014 at 11:18 am said:

I’m excited for Limbo! And as others have commented, it looks like a great line up for the IGC for E3. My guess is that XCOM will leave as well, but be a surprise 4th new game kind of like last year. But that’s completely speculative. I’m also interested to see what’s hitting the PS4. I haven’t been using mine as much after I platinumed Infamous! I would love to see knack, but even cooler and less likely would be something like The Last of Us PS4. How amazing would that be? If only it was coming out in time…

Quick side note. I’m wondering if the PS Vita will ever see a refresh for the IGC? It’s been a long time. I absolutely love the system. Seriously, I play it more than my PS4 and PS3 combined… Well, and I play my PS4 on it as well fairly often, so I’m not sure where to count those hours. :-) Anyway, I just want to get some feedback about the Vita. I worry it’s going to lose support since it isn’t performing as well in sales. Even though it’s amazing! So even if we don’t see a IGC refresh for it, please don’t give up on it!! Thanks!
