PlayStation Plus: November Preview

Kristine Steimer's Avatar Posted by Sr. Community Specialist

It’s going to be quite the month for PlayStation fans. PS4 is almost here, and it’s going to be mega awesome when I fire mine up for the first time and already have two free games to play. Yep, both Resogun, the intense and beautiful shoot ‘em up from Housemarque(the amazing people behind Super Stardust) and Contrast, a unique 2D/3D puzzler platformer with a stunning art style will be available in the Instant Game Collection for PlayStation Plus members on November 15th.

Of course, we have plenty of other great games to keep you busy until then, like Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, which is an expanded and enhanced version of Capcom’s original IP Dragon’s Dogma. There’s a new area to explore, a fast-travel system and plenty of new quests and weapons to keep you busy. Later on this month we’ll add ibb & obb, a 2-player co-op puzzler and Binary Domain, a third-person squad shooter. PS Vita owners can look forward to two amazing action-adventure titles: the classic Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath and the ever-epic Soul Sacrifice.

These games will hit the Instant Game Collection at various times throughout the month, so check back with us every Monday morning to see all the benefits of your membership.

Thank you so much! I got my PS+ in September but didn’t see any games that interested me in the past two months but this month is just fantastic! Thank you for Soul Sacrifice, Ibb and Obb, Resogun, and Contrast!

smoothboarder540 said:

October 31st, 9:37 am

Awesome month. Ibb and Obb looks like the only filler game. The rest are bigger games. Definitely better than EU for a change.

Well it’s about time!! Hopefully you guys can bring the good games next month too. I don’t think I could bear any more months like the last few!

Nice work. Good update.

GranpireV said:

October 31st, 9:38 am

Oddworld is one of the Vita’s best, and it’s not often talked about. I’m happy about this one.

Great month once again.

Tactical_Snuke said:

October 31st, 9:38 am

Any VITA Owners, I really suggest you pick up Soul Sacrifice.. it’s a fantastic game, hours & hours of gameplay with amazing graphics, it’s a very similar game to Monster Hunter so if you have played that, you will love Soul Sacrifice

etscott said:

October 31st, 9:38 am

Wow, best month ever. I can’t wait to play some of these. Something for me on PS3, PS4 and Vita. Hooray!

coconutshinobi said:

October 31st, 9:39 am

Wow I don’t have enough time to play just PS Plus games!

Pildoring said:

October 31st, 9:40 am

OK now you guys just make ma jaw trope, how can i have a live between my PS3, VITA and PS4. You guys just kill my social live. Amazing line up. Keep it up guys

x_PlaTtiNuM said:

October 31st, 9:40 am

holy cow.. what an amazing month!!!!! can’t wait.. also can you answer my question? will soul sacrifice come with the online pass? I also have a suggestion for a ps vita game, persona 4 golden would be amazing! I’m sure alot of people would enjoy it ^_^

    Kristine Steimer said:

    October 31st, 10:14 am

    Yes it comes with an online pass; online passes are only required for used copies of the game.

I would like to know when or if Uncharted 1 & 2, God of War, Assassin Creed I – III, Ratchet and Clank will ever be on PS Plus instant game collection.

Great games this month!

ThumbsOfSteel74 said:

October 31st, 9:41 am

Lol. There are those who complain when NA games aren’t the same as EU and those who complain when they are.

Nice if we could get Stranger’s Wrath for PS3 at some point. :)

But for now I’m looking forward to Ibb & Obb. Will check out the others as well.

Biggz124 said:

October 31st, 9:41 am


so good.

at least SCE is throwing down, in the games kitchen, just get your bread up in the multimedia thoe.


October 31st, 9:41 am

Finally! A NA PS+, that seems like EU PS+! :D Kudos to SCEA! I hope everyone gets to enjoy the underrated gem that’s Dragon’s Dogma Dark Arisen, and the incredible game that’s Soul Sacrifice!

Wozman23 said:

October 31st, 9:42 am

Can’t wait for Contrast and Resogun.

Ibb & Obb was a lot of fun, and very challenging solo.

tylerh1701 said:

October 31st, 9:42 am

This lineup is absolutely amazing from top to bottom. I’m LOVING the 2 Vita games per month and no PSP games. And then SOUL SACRIFICE!!!! Just Perfect!

spearrage said:

October 31st, 9:42 am

noooooooo! i bought dragon´s dogma dark arisen 2 months ago….oh well, this may gives the franchise exposure to increase the likeness of new installment of the game, next generation. It´s cool contrast is going to be avaible for PS+ subs, something to play on PS4 beside killzone for me this mid november =D

Skygazer_10 said:

October 31st, 9:42 am

Amazing games! Great month! Hopefully you guys can continue with more triple a games for the vita next month. Thanks Plus team.

I’m not planning to buy ps4 until December. Will I still be able to save both playstation 4 titles even though I don’t have a ps4?

ImSoForKingBedS said:

October 31st, 9:43 am

Awesome month!!! I was just about to pick up Dark Arisen since I had traded my original copy of Dragon’s Dogma awhile back, really looking forward to Oddworld as well. I have Strangers wrath on my PS3 but it will be very nice to have it wherever I want. One question though, is Oddworld cross save compatible at all?

Twilightknight69 said:

October 31st, 9:43 am

For those of us not getting a PS4, Keep the PS3 stuff coming, and never forget us. Plus is good this month, might grab all three games for PS3. Keep up the good picks.

poodude said:

October 31st, 9:43 am

Kristine, do you know when Contrast and res0gun will be available for download? Will it be on the 15th or do we have to wait for the Tuesday Store update?

    Kristine Steimer's Avatar

    Kristine Steimer said:

    October 31st, 10:08 am

    They will both be available on the 15th :)

Valde_zerocool said:

October 31st, 9:43 am

1. I’m unfamiliar with Dragons Dogma DA, is it a spinoff of the first game or first + an expansion?

2. Will we be seeing a change of the 3 core Vita instant game collection titles?

Great month, keep up the good work.

    Kristine Steimer's Avatar

    Kristine Steimer said:

    October 31st, 10:01 am

    It includes the first game (with a few tweaks) plus a new area.

wutdaheckman said:

October 31st, 9:44 am

amazing, thanks for the good work – when will we hear about the annual IGC line change??

Ottoroyal said:

October 31st, 9:44 am

I own all the vita additions, however it will help to have more soul sacrifice players online. Especially if they are more reasonable with their strategies. I’m sure both of the vita games are just to promote future games and installments. Although, 2 AAA games for PS3 is incredible. Can’t wait for my roommate to get his PS4 this Christmas

e46drvr said:

October 31st, 9:45 am

Wow Solid month!

poodude said:

October 31st, 9:45 am

@42 It’s the first game + the expansion.

Xcaligamer1 said:

October 31st, 9:46 am

no ps4 this year but apparently i’ll have ps4 games already, woohoo


October 31st, 9:46 am

Even though there isn’t much there for me this month I can tell that this is a terrific update. I’ve been waiting on a sale for Stranger’s Wrath for the longest time but I guess this will have to do ;).

Having sad that, will we also be seeing a refresh to the Vita’s long-term IGC this month?

USRevenge2 said:

October 31st, 9:46 am

you really want me to get a vita don’t you.

dragons dogma is an amazing game.

can’t wait to get my ps4 though.

Amnalehu said:

October 31st, 9:46 am

This looks like the best month of PS+ ever. Looks like something for everyone but for those of us who are lucky enough to have all 3 consoles this is really going to be a crazy month! Thank you Sony and PS+!
