PlayStation Plus: Trine 2, PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate, NBA 2K14 Free for Members

Kristine Steimer's Avatar + Posted by Kristine Steimer on Jun 02, 2014 // Sr. Community Specialist

A rogue, a wizard and a knight are the best of friends (well, they work together at least) in Trine 2: Complete Story. You’ll either play as all three characters, rotating between them as you need their unique abilities, or you can grab a couple friends to take control of the two other heroes. Of course, you might all be too busy drooling at the art to solve any puzzles, but that’s okay.

In case you missed it in the PS Plus June Preview, you’ll be happy to see that there’s another PS4 game free this month. PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is a combination of the well-loved twin-stick shooter games (PixelJunk Shooter and PixelJunk Shooter 2) that released on PS3. Not only is the Ultimate version cross-buy, which means Plus members will also get the Vita version, but it includes cross-save and cross-play functionality.

Last, but not least, we’ve got NBA 2K14 on PlayStation 3 for you — just in time for the NBA Finals. LeBron James stars in the new Path to Greatness Mode, where you can suit up as the reigning NBA champion and develop your own future for him.

You can download Trine 2: Complete Story, PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate and NBA 2K14 after PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, June 3rd.

Meh. You would think that if the PS+ format were shifting this dramatically, the new titles would have some kind of wow factor to them. Oh well. Here is hoping to some kind of surprise at E3…

Great Rainbow Moon sale!
Rainbow Moon is a great game! Bought it day 1. I think I’ll buy all the DLC just in case I want to play again and make my life easier. ^^

For the people asking for the PS Vita games:

From June Preview post:
“Starting in JULY, every title in the Instant Game Collection will be available the first Tuesday of the month, and will be free for the month, until the first Tuesday of the following month”

Thanks PS Plus for another great month of Games. Can’t wait for me & my roommate to play some NBA 2K14, also can’t wait to try out Sly Cooper later this month. Two great games for my birthday :-)

All of those discounts for Rainbow Moon… I don’t know how much of the DLC I’ll buy, but I’m definitely buying the main game.

Lost in all the comments from those who are certain nobody wants sports games is any mention of the people who are overjoyed to be getting sports games. In fact, you could easily replace “sports” with “indie” or “racing” or “platypus simulation” or any type of game in existence.

That’s the way the IGC works: They give us whatever they can based on deals they’re able to make with publishers, and we have no direct control over it.

Fine with me. Personally, I don’t give a crap about NBA 2K14. But to each his own. :)

Why is NBA 2K14 not free for PS4? With no backward compatibility for PS3 there has been nothing to make Playstation Plus worth the $50 a year.

“Since we’ve seen how excited many of you are to download Instant Game Collection titles as soon as they’re available, we’ve decided to adjust the length of time each title will be available. Starting in July, every title in the Instant Game Collection will be available the first Tuesday of the month, and will be free for the month, until the first Tuesday of the following month, taking the guesswork out of how long the game will be available for free…”

You are taking out every game from last month and replace it with only 3 games? What is this joke? Why can’t you just do what you are telling your customers and fans? Do you smoke s**t? Get a grip and do your jobs!

@66
Rainbow Moon is a FULL game (and an amazing one). There’s no microtransations.
You can buy the full game and finish it without buying DLC.
These DLC are just to speed things up. Unlike microtransations you CANNOT buy them several times. And, as conventional DLC they will always be available whenever you start a new game.

+ Patchm00 on June 2nd, 2014 at 9:59 am said:

Clarification please, once you “purchase” a free game from PS+, it’s yours forever as long as you are member of PS+ right? Even if it leaves the PS+ “free” store and even if you have not downloaded it. At least that’s what I thought I read. So really, it seems you would add to shopping cart any game you plan on playing at some time before it leaves the PS+ store. Am I missing something?

thanks


79

+ TinCannEd on June 2nd, 2014 at 10:07 am said:

Wow! Lot of games for PS+ this week. Thanks Sony.

Rainbow Moon is a great game. I originally had it for the PS3 & bought the Vita version @ a discount.

Anyone thinking about buying Rainbow Moon, the game really stands out on the Vita, if you have one.


80

+ TinCannEd on June 2nd, 2014 at 10:11 am said:

Actually Patchm00, you can’t add a PS+ game to your cart. It only give you the option to accept the terms & the download process begins.

Then all you have to do is cancel the download if you don’t want to continue the download.

The game will now say purchased & it is yours as long as you have PS+. If you sub expires & you renew, you still have access to all the games you got on PS+.


81

+ Patchm00 on June 2nd, 2014 at 10:16 am said:

Hmm TinCannEd,

Actually I am actually talking about doing it from the web page on a PC and not from my PS3/4. I know for a fact i can go to PS+ store and choose purchase and it says $0.00 and i finish the deal then the next step is “download to my PS3/4″ which I do not do. Then all those that i did show up as “Purchased” on the PS+ web page store. But you confirmed my question about it being yours forever. But if you don’t download it, I guess there is still a way to download it if purchased.

thanks

@Patchm00: Yup. All those Plus freebies will show up in your download list to be downloaded whenever you like. *IF* you do as you said and complete the process after adding them to your cart on the PC.

Just trying to clarify so new users don’t miss out; as you know, adding them to your cart is not enough. :)

Thank you for listening! Now people won’t be doomed to not get the platinum in NBA 2K14 because you gave it to us the first week possible!
If anybody would like to boost this, just add me/send me a message on PSN and say “NBA” and I’ll know what you want. I will help anybody get all of the online trophies, if possible.


88

+ Valyrious on June 2nd, 2014 at 11:35 am said:

Also, can anybody tell me why Trine 2 [PS3 version] has 13 gold trophies (and 15 trophies overall), while Trine 2: The Complete Story [PS4 version] has just three trophies (but 51 trophies overall)?


89

+ Valyrious on June 2nd, 2014 at 11:38 am said:

Trine 2 [PS3] has 11 gold trophies and 13 overall, but still, you get my point. I’ve never seen a game with so many gold trophies. And it’s only 5 bucks on the store. Very tempted to get it, just to get more gold trophies.

+ xClayMeow on June 2nd, 2014 at 11:53 am said:

First, yay PJSU for Vita!

Second, I was going to wait for Rainbow Skies and then only get RM after if I liked it, but that price is mighty tempting. However, all the DLC is really disconcerting. Anyone play the game and can tell me if it can be fully enjoyed without all that DLC crap?

Another week closer to E3, another incredibly weak update from the Plus team.

Why do you keep giving us discounts on the PAY TO WIN garbage?

What happened to sales on actual games, flash sales, DLC sales (for real DLC) etc..

And us lucky PS4 owners have our 8th month in a row since launch with NO REAL PS4 game in the IGC yet. Driveclub was never replaced… we only get to rent/borrow the games in the IGC as Plus members so it’s not like we’re getting anything free or permanent… Yet we keep getting the shaft.

So this week/month nothing good in the PS4 or Vita IGC and so far more terrible pay to win dlc sales… Plus has been a horrible disappointment this entire year so far, now that it’s a mandatory service… coincidence? doubtful.

Go back to real sales and stop this PAY TO WIN garbage.

You mean you’re getting free games for your mandatory service? Well then maybe you should stop being so ungrateful and appreciate what you’re getting in addition to your MANDATORY service.

Why didn’t you read my mind and give me exactly what I wanted, Sony? What the hell is wrong with you? Do you think I paid a measly $50 per year just for awesome random games, cloud storage and discounts? No! I want new releases from the big name developers on day one! I don’t care that they can’t afford to do it! Do it anyway! Or else I’ll poo in my diaper and cry to my mommy! And I’ll make big, long-winded posts on this blog full of pseudo-intellectual jibberish pretending that I’m some big-wig with insider information! And I’ll threaten to take my measly $50 elsewhere! And I’ll get my 3 PSN friends to join me! Yeah! That’ll teach you to screw with me! I own you Sony! Be afraid! Be very afraid! I’m really intimidating! You’re scared, aren’t you, Sony?
