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.

Here’s hoping that the poor sales lately are in anticipation of a big sale around E3, sort of like last years summer sale.

With LBPK and U3 leaving but XCom staying, wondering if the third is switching during E3 rather than next week or if we are going down to 2 yearly games for PS3 and the 3rd being for PS4 (probably the PSN version of Drive Club).

Still, overall a worthwhile year for PS+ and here’s to another good year of great games.

You know what would be nice?

If I could actually play my PS+ games and digital purchases on my alt account on my Vita (like you can for PS3/PS4). I didn’t realize this wasn’t the case until I tried to switch accounts so I could earn trophies on my alt for a game I liked.

Not going to be buying digital games for Vita anymore. Really disappointed.

I’m incredibly disappointed with this week. Limbo is 4 years old and I’ve already played it, and I have no interest in generic military shooters.

Man this year has been a bad year for ps plus for me. There has not been any game i was interested in downloading because either i had them already or i just did not like them. Please may june be a better month. I would love to see any crysis game to download or deadpool.

@ 17 – If ur a big indie fan and u want a Vita and have plus then u should get a Vita already, plus has given so many great Vita/indie games from Hotline Miami, Machinarium, Sine Mora, Sole Survivor, a Clone in the Dark, Thomas Was Alone, Surge Deluxe, Dokuro, and many more. Obviously they’ve given the big titles like Uncharted GA, Rayman Origins, Unit 13, Wipeout, Sly Cooper Thieves in Time, Gravity Rush, StreetFighter X T, Walking Dead, Modnation, Sonic Racing Transformed, Ninja Gaiden Z+ ect ect. Vita or not if u have plus get the free Vita games so they’re on your download list so when u do get a Vita all u have to buy is a memory card because u will have a giant catalogue of free games already.

Plus has had a great yr more great games than i could play, here’s to a spectacular e3 & a killer igc for June. Btw all u guys “super hyped” for Watchpups i get it, it will be a by the numbers gta/AC type AAA game & yes i am getting my copy at midnight, but ur missing out on a GREAT & highly underrated game which is currently out – that game is Wolfenstein New Order & it is awesome on PS4. U guys are missing out on a masterful single player experience in Wolfie.

+ Sek-C on May 26th, 2014 at 2:46 pm said:

Disappointing. Some Japanese vita games please! Or Killzone Mercenaries. Also, for future reference I don’t want Knack on ps plus ever.

How about some PS1 games? Or WRC4 or Call of Duty?

Hey Guys, Could you tell me please why When I Try to download PES 2014 It does not Show FREE for Play Station Plus Member It shows with a 60 Bucks price!!! I thought This Would be for free, I´ve been Expecting this game, Is there something wrong with this?? Help Please!!

Hey guys, needs to send a feedback. I saw last week some addons for Soul Sacrifice Delta, which I am really interested!!!! But i didn’t found any blog about the release of the Limited Edition and neither more information the addon and features. I am relying in external reviews to see what other people know about it. Things like, should i purchase the Limited Edition or wait for normal version?

A epic game like this deserves a more honorable press and surely a dedicated Post! :)

So… you drop 5 titles and replace it with an overhyped boring indie game? Smart. (not).

Guess I won’t be renewing Plus this month. Last month and this month have been absolutely awful. Who allows these awful games into plus anyways? Indies are the death of gaming.

Resogun leaving makes me sad. It’s probably my 3rd favorite game of the generation. Can’t wait to find out about the DLC coming up.

@colef10

Why be sad about it? If you’ve downloaded it, you can keep it as long as you’re a Plus member.

@GStylez1980

I’ve come to the conclusion, he has no idea how Plus works.


124

+ l-Z-l on May 26th, 2014 at 5:08 pm said:

Please tell us that they’re letting us play the PS3 version of Limbo, too? May’s Plus PS3 selection was pretty disappointing, but that would certainly make up for it.

Does anyone else think they should extend the Instant Game Collection to 20, rather than taking 2 away from Sony’s still very large PS3 crowd, because the PS4 came out?

Fairly new Plus member here; The auto maintenance (the game’s self-patching at night) was the final push to make me a member… and I think it’s awesome so far… strangely, I’m actually buying more games now even with the free ones on hand. Pretty sure you’ve finally turned me into a full-blown game addict…. and this from someone that still has his Atari emulator, SNES, Genesis, Gamecube, PS1, PS2, and PS3… with over 1,600 games strong.


125

+ SpooNManX on May 26th, 2014 at 5:14 pm said:

Since this update is small, let’s play a game. Name some games you would like to see show up on PSN Plus for June.

Let’s say 2 games for each platform. I’ll start. :)

1. PS4: Knack & Octodad
2. PS3: Rock Band 3 & Grand Theft Auto V
3. Vita: Mutant Muds & Age of Zombies
4. *Bonus* PS1 Classic (Cross-Platform): HERC’s Adventure


126

+ Hawkeyejojon on May 26th, 2014 at 5:20 pm said:

@ccrogers15 What are you talking about? Those 5 games are leaving on 6/3/14 aka June 3, 2014 not tomorrow since you know tomorrow is still May and definitely not June. Velocity Ultra(PS Vita) is leaving the IGC tomorrow. So in short Limbo(PS Vita) is replacing Velocity Ultra(PS Vita) and not replacing those 5 games. No one knows what is replacing those 5 games yet.

This month was pretty uninteresting for me. I don’t think I even downloaded a game.

I’m hoping we get our first full PS4 game next month. I’d like to see Killzone offered.

+ Clocktowe015 on May 26th, 2014 at 5:53 pm said:

@ 125, My guesses are :^)

For PS4

1. Killzone SF
2.Octodad

For PS3

1. Final Fantasy X
2. Minecraft

+ Valyrious on May 26th, 2014 at 6:08 pm said:

I do agree with the notion of some that we will be seeing a big name title hit the PS+ next month, but those that are expecting KZ: Shadowfall or Final Fantasy X are unnecessarily setting their expectations so high that nothing short of an overpayment (like, say, Watch Dogs and Child of Light) would make them happy.

Let’s just compose ourselves, stop drooling over the thought of all the AAA titles for free, and just appreciate what we get, yeah?
I have only had a Playstation for two months, and I already have 70+ titles. Yes, that is not a typo. Seventy. I have a larger library in two months than I have in my entire gaming history with Xbox for over seven years. That’s insane.

I don’t care if you give me incredible AAA games, or lame indie games. THANK YOU SONY, from the bottom of my heart, for reawakening my passion for gaming, and not ripping my ass apart in a bid for my wallet. It is commendable, and I shall not abandon you for M$ ever again.

Limbo is amazing game already bought on one of the ps plus sales awhile ago played through it in one sitting on my Vita never thought of it has a horror game at all but it definitely carries a mysterious darker vibe to it.

+ PhoenixDowny on May 26th, 2014 at 6:16 pm said:

Well it’s time for me to download “Limbo” to my PS Vita! I can’t wait to see what E3 2014 has in store for the PS Vita!


134

+ Doomhammer-7 on May 26th, 2014 at 6:23 pm said:

Also I’m sad to see Resogun finally leaving Ps Plus its going to be one of the hardest games to replace in terms of quality. I’m not sure what games are coming up or out that I would like to replace the current Free PS Plus PS4 games.

other then I hope its not
Killzone Sf
Knack
AC 4 Black Flag
Pinball Arcade
Transistor
Child of light
Injustice
TowerFall
Flower
Flow
Infamous second son
and COD
not saying these aren’t great games because they are but they are also the games I already own on PS4 that were not gotten through PS plus and I am planning on buying Octodad soon

So My guesses for what the PS4 PS Plus games are
-Knack
-New Indie title that we don’t know the release Date of

Limbo was a lot of fun on PS3, but it felt just right on the Vita. It is a perfect game for a handheld. I purchased it again on Vita when it first came out , and loved it all over again. If you have a Vita, it is a great free game for Plus members.

“Aww man, Limbo?!?!”

Look at all these posers pretending that they didn’t know what game was coming this week… ha ha ha… you little brats crack me up.

You ask for a monthly preview post, then after you get it, you act as if you never saw it.

Hey Sony, might as well go back to the old format where every Monday’s offering was a surprise. These ungrateful snobs don’t seem to appreciate anything.

@GStylez1980 There are two reasons. Either ccrogers is an idiot or just a kid. If I have to choose either one of those reasons, I would choose both.

@PrimeroIncognito I could not agree with you more. I may not like the game, but I’m not going to spew self-centered garbage like the ungrateful snobs they are.

I clearly recall being told we would receive a new free movie each week, exclusively for Plus members, then it was supposedly delayed, and now I have not heard a thing in 4 months+

Also, please add the Showtime app sometime… It only makes sense since you’ve added HBO Go.

Highly unlikely that rock and 3 and gta v are added to the igc. Rock and 3 is old now and gta v is still selling well.

Also it doesn’t make sense for octodad now to be free when it was just released not to long ago and they didn’t give it to us free I think your right about knack I do see that game as fee next week.

Also I believe playstation all stars will be one of the games for ps3. And hopefully it will be paired up with beyond two souls.
