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.

If you’re thinking that because EU got that game that we are due the same, you’re sadly mistaken. I’ve seen many games that they got and we NEVER did. RDR, Batman Arkham City, Need for Speed, and many more. Never think that because they got it that we too will get it here. It may never happen.

I have a question and hope you can answer it. Both resogun and contrast are the ps4 plus games for November, but the launch of the console is at the very end of the month, so my question is, will we have 2 different games for december or do we have to wait until january to enjoy new games?

intheface88 said:

November 1st, 7:25 am

The PS3 games got me excited and then I realized we were getting Resogun AND Contrast free for the PS4 (which I’ll be getting Day 1) and….head exploded. These were both games I was going to buy and now not having to spend money on that means I can go support some of the other Indie games on PSN/PS4. So once again…thank you Sony.

intheface88 said:

November 1st, 7:27 am

The console is released on the 15th, so they have 2 weeks to release the games. So i’d imagine that week 1 we’d get one game and then week 2 we’d get the other. Unless they just want to give them to us for free which I’m perfectly fine with.

Onenutmcgee said:

November 1st, 7:41 am

Now this is an update. I was starting to think my $50 wasted with the last couple of months, but there’s not a bad title in the bunch here. Keep making updates like this and you’ll have my money forever!

SilverShoelaces said:

November 1st, 7:56 am

I haven’t seen a PSP game in a while. Are those being phased out, or are there plans to bring us another classic PSP game? Not that brand new Vita/PS4 games aren’t fun and exciting, but my PSP is getting lonely.

jonnyonemove said:

November 1st, 7:58 am

After being a die hard m$ xboxer with the ps4 coming out and m$’s big fail I’ve made the switch over. Picked up a vita about 1.5 months ago and started playstation plus. Every month you put out quality titles through that program.. Compared to what m$ gives out on their games with gold it is top notch. Thanks much and keep up the great work!

joshfeldsher said:

November 1st, 8:02 am

If I don’t have a PS4 yet, will I be able to download the two PS4 titles from my PS3 to save them in my downloads folder for when i do get the PS4? I really want Resogun, but i’ll probably have to wait till Christmas for my PS4.

Mazrkoth said:

November 1st, 8:20 am

Apologies if this has been answered previously as I have not seen it. The PS4 will not be used by the kids till Christmas time so I will not be able to “purchase” the PS4 games. Will a PS3 still be able to purchase these PS4 games so that they are available for download Christmas morning?

rmj2bpresident said:

November 1st, 8:36 am

You can’t put another good Vita game out, I’m still going through Disgaea!

Rainwater said:

November 1st, 8:38 am

Decent update though I already own, what I think are, the best games offered; Dragon’s Dogma and Soul Sacrifice. In months like these, I wish there was a system in place that would offer some other bonus to those of us who already bought the content being offered.

WTF IS THAT????? WHERE IS FAR CRY 3?????????????

FireDragonMonkey said:

November 1st, 9:19 am

I’m not sure if anyone reads this far down but, this is an awesome month coming up! Didn’t get Soul Sacrifice or Ibb & Obb during the sales this summer because I had too much to play at the time so I’m happy to see them as part of PS+ !

I really hope you add Muramasa Rebirth to PS+ in the near future (or give a large discount like 50%) because I’m kicking myself for missing that sale!

Sonic512 said:

November 1st, 9:28 am

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THIS IS AMAZING! I don’t not have any of these games and want all of them! I’m glad I waited to buy some of them! I was hoping stranger’s wrath would become free since I bought it on the ps3. Thank you for the tip of using the online store to get the ps4 games since i won’t have a ps4 for a time.

Sonic512 said:

Do not* I got excited :D

zeenick said:

Yay I thought my first run at this plus thing would suck but look at that dragon’s dogma and binary domain in the same month….awesomesauce!

Drakor180 said:

November 1st, 10:14 am

While there’s not really anything for me this month since I own all the ones that I want, it’s still a great month! I especially recommend Dragons Dogma to everyone, I’ve put sooooo many hours into that game!

SolidFire22 said:

November 1st, 10:19 am

Can you redeem those PS4 games on the PS3, so that when I’m able to get a PS4…I’ll have them as part of my collection? Or do I need a PS4 to add them to my instant collection on time?


November 1st, 10:28 am

Amazing month!! Domo Arigato!!! :D

Matsudaira said:

November 1st, 10:36 am

Sony… you guys are killing it!

My concern is simple though. Since PS+ is now required in order to play MOST online games, millions more people are probably going to get a subscription. To me, this means releasing more games for free will start to get costly (after all… you just handed out two PS4 games for free, at launch! I was prepped to buy Resogun!) and start hitting your profit margins. I REALLY hope you guys develop out a PS+ Platinum subscription that we can pay for that will offer different benefits, like getting the free games first before standard PS+ subscribers. More revenue stream for you guys, while keeping all + members happy.

mr_krispy_kreme said:

November 1st, 10:39 am

Ibb and Obb was one of those games that I was hesitant to get, but I will be enjoying it now that it comes free.

I had a friend recommend I get Contrast… and now that its going to be free on release, I am expecting to pick it up and start playing right away. Yes!

LordZwan said:

November 1st, 11:01 am

Wait… Wot?… Omg… This is awesome! I’m crying! Soul Sacrifice? Dragon Dogma? the first 2 Ps4 IGC games? Omg, this is US blog, right? and I just renew my Plus Sub *-* I’m so happy :’)

There will be any rotation in the IGC AAA for PsVita?… Or forever Uncharted/Gravity Rush/Wipout?

Ty so Mucho!

BamBamBradley said:

November 1st, 11:21 am

Super excited for Resogun and Contrast as well as soul sacrifice and oddworld strangers wrath for the vita.

CrazyGuy62 said:

November 1st, 11:28 am

I don’t understand the entitlement some players have with the IGC…since when has the IGC said to have only AAA new ps3 games that get the highest ratings?

From what I have seen of the entire PS+ program and thats before the IGC, the titles that have been picked were picked to gain attention to titles that are coming up soon (i.e. RE5 Gold for RE6) or titles that rated well but just didn’t have the sales (i.e. Sleeping Dogs and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning). Sometimes even the companies just wanted people to gain developer attention (i.e. Retro City Rampage and Ibb Obb).

Now have there been some I have hated? Of course, as everyone is entitled to their opinion but I feel the IGC is doing great on their chioces and only hope they keep doing a great job!

When will we get content specifically for the PSPgo?

XenoNative said:

November 1st, 12:24 pm

I fully support Housemarque so I will buy Resogun in December.

lisatsunami said:

@433, Greggy, good point. Go say something funny on the PS4 FAQ page too, please.

KevinChaos said:

November 1st, 12:44 pm

Can someone tell me if Playroom will be downloadable?? I understand it comes preinstalled on ps4, but what happens if we upgrade the hard drive? Do we lose that title, or can it be downloaded through PSN?
I don’t want to do an HDD backup day 1 just to tranfer playroom to my 1.5tb HDD I’m installing at launch :(

Someone please answer me.

I think it would be a great idea to post Playroom to the Playstation Store for those of us who are upgrading the hard drive, so we don’t miss out.

djsaiyan said:

November 1st, 12:49 pm


I love you Greg. Don’t ever change. Beyond!


I’m kind of wondering this myself. I’d like to be able to skip the backup/restore step when putting my 1.5 TB HD in my PS4, and instead just pop it in, turn it on, and download my games. My backlog of games. For a system I don’t even own yet.

Hachie machie, this gen is already off to a bad (awesome) start lol

Falconer74 said:

Just curious…but when will Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen actually show up as free for PS+ members?

GT-420 said:

November 1st, 1:53 pm

Thank you Sony!!! Tthe last couple months it finally feels like NA+ is up to par with what EU+ has been getting….

BINARY DOMAIN!!! FTW!!! Good thing I waited. Happy Birthday to me. (Now, I just have to make some Hard Drive space……crap……)

Epicnessofme said:

November 1st, 2:13 pm

Great month but it sucks cuz I literally just bought Soul Sacrifice and it arrived yesterday before they announced that it’d be on PS plus and I already opened it :(

Pup1_el_principe said:

I really want Killzone: Mercenary Free for PS Plus to December if sony can do it…

November 1st, 3:21 pm

sweet! can’t wait, when do the next ps plus usually update free game lists.

DonkeyKongKilla said:

November 1st, 4:40 pm

Exactly why I am not renewing my plus, unless I’m getting a ps4 that is. Unlikely I will be getting one soon.

I really respect everybody’ss opinions, but i’m really, really dissapointed with this update… AGAIN !

Far cry 3, most wanted, assassins creed 3 and now, metal gear rising !

I should have bought a game. that always be mine. but no… i really gave a try to this service.

Not satisfied at all

JuniorPear said:

November 1st, 6:59 pm

That is an insane update for the month. This is the best update I’ve seen in a long time. DD: DA and Soul Sacrifice are huge games I’ve been wanting to try out. I would’ve never guessed they would be in the IGC this early. Great move Sony! Thanks for thinking of us penny pinchers! :)

DieBarneyDie said:

November 1st, 7:16 pm

Im wondering..can I order the PS4 PSPlus games off the Web Store because im not getting a PS4 till next year sometime..Or cant I get them unless I have the PS4?
