PlayStation Plus: February’s Free Games

This is a pretty awesome month for PlayStation Plus members with a variety of quality titles across PlayStation platforms entering the service.

On PlayStation 4 you’ll receive one of the coolest games from last year – the critically acclaimed strategy/action RPG Transistor. PS4 owners will also get Apotheon, an action platformer set in Greek mythology, the day it releases on PlayStation Store. PlayStation 3 owners can explore the ins and outs of Tokyo with Yakuza 4 or sneak about The City stealing what you can in Thief. PlayStation Vita owners can see how many generations of champions it takes to beat the quirky Rogue Legacy and jump around as a little boy with a big gun (not so much for shooting enemies as it is launching you around) in Kick & Fennick, which is also releasing day and date in PlayStation Plus.

All of these games will be free for Plus members starting February 3rd. If you want to see these titles in action, check out the video below. When you watch, you may notice that the voice over has changed a bit, and my friend Ryan Clements is narrating instead of me. He’ll be handling the Plus communications from now on, including this post in the future, so thank you guys for all the support over the past couple years!

  • My goodness! These are all amazing. Thanks a lot, team!

  • stardusterx

    So, basically we PS4 owners get games that look like warmed up Commodore 64 games, and PS3 owners get modern AAA titles.
    Nice job, Sony. NOT!

    Seriously, what’s the matter here? Is PS4 your main product now or is it still PS3?
    I get that some people really love indie games and it’s good that there are some games for them. But what about rest of us? I bought my PS4 to play some highly thrilling games. I like good story in games, but it has to be presented in AAA way. Yes, graphics matter!

    Also I’m not playing much of multyplayer games, so I’m seriously rethinking if I’m gonna pay for PS+ again. Maybe it’s better to save money for some good AAA single player game. At least until Sony decides to give PS4 same respect as to PS3.

  • @95 Go cry in your cheerios.

  • The only good ones are Thief and Kick & Fennick.
    I’d be fine if Thief was for PS4 as well but another disappointment.

  • BlueBl1zzard

    Not a bad month. I heard good things about both Transistor and Rouge Legacy so I’m excited to give them a try.

    Sad to see you go Kristine, we’ll miss you : (

  • maxcoronel2014

    Ive been waiting to give Transistor a try, Looks pretty cool.

  • antmoney151

    this may be the first ps plus line up im not hyped on since i got my ps4. Its really only because i already own transistor (day 1 buy) and rogue legacy (day 1 buy). sucks that i already own 2 of 3 games i could get. kinda sucks.

  • realbigexplosion

    As a PS3 and Vita owner, I am pleased with this month.

  • Ninja_Chicken666

    will thief be cross-buy on ps4

  • HeyManNiceShot83

    Im interest in the PS4 lineup. I havent really played anything on my PS3 since upgrading. Thief for PS3 and not PS4? That’s disappointing.

  • Yess. Finally a good month, cant wait!!! Thank you

  • the_FREELANCER

    Still no Driveclub? Interesting…

  • more indie garbage, yawn

    could have given thief for ps4 but nah sony does it for ps3 ROFL

    ps plus for the past year has been a JOKE

  • well, well at least it’s something, I’m just happy to see Transistor and Thief, two great games, thanks Sony

  • And I thought SURELY that there wouldn’t be people complaining about this line-up. But, once again, the miserable ass whiny children prove me wrong. You people really are insufferable.

    On topic, though, this is a great! I was on the fence about buying Transistor for a long time and now I don’t have to be on the fence anymore!

    Pro tip for the miserable whiners out there: appreciate what you get, instead of complaining about what you don’t get.

  • wwwdotjames

    Driveclub??? HELLO, ANYONE THERE???

  • The inclusion of Transistor and Rouge Legacy make this a solid month for PS+! Both of these games are greatness. Enjoy PS family!

  • yowzagabowza

    Pretty great lineup for me. Wow, i cant believe i kust said that!

  • only indies for vita/ps4…… thank you sony!!!!
    ps3 is dead……

  • Indie crap! Indie crap! Indie crap! I’m trading for an Xbox one. Why not nfs rivals or drive club? Why give us these $10 games? So not worth the price tag.

  • DecadanceFantasy

    Ok thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Playstation!
    I’ve been wanting to try Transistor out forever but never got the chance. Actually every game this coming month looks great! Zero complaints from me! I’ll get a reason to hook up my ps3 too! So fun! I’ve really been wanting to try out the Yakuza series, so Yakuza 4 looks great. It’ll be a great transition to Yakuza 5 in the coming months.
    Rouge Legacy looks crazy, and zany but fun. Will def be playing on my Vita.
    I’m super excited for this!

  • ImCharming325

    Hahahaha Happy Birthday Ryan!!!

  • Awesome month, thanks!

  • When I saw that Transistor thumbnail my hear skipped a beat! I love you PlayStation!

  • Excelent, for me, the best month so far!!!! psplus S2!!!

  • @lazerdink

    Nice trolling, go play your Xbox One, heard it is getting one single indie game for Feb, have fun with it.

  • Rezolution77

    Oddly enough I just happened to stop by today. Not a horrible lineup, unless you own a Vita :(
    I play more PSone and PSP games, and am saving my digital games for Vita since there are not many.
    Battery life is more, and cost is so much less on the PSP.

    More sales before I go ISO and Emulator too. Be smart.
    Trophy support would help this as well. Some of us loyal fans like to show it.

    Maybe a console/Sony T-shirt for buyer incentive for how much spent in a year.

    And why is Final Fantasy Crisis Core Still Not On the Store!!!!??
    Or Syphon Filter for PSP not as an individual purchase?

    As for other sales, been some decent ones lately, keep them coming.
    Just upgraded to a 1tb HDD, so some room left for more.

  • gonzalo__01

    AWESOMEE!!!!

  • JotaEseTheGeek

    Wonderful month. Rogue Legacy is amazing. I know because I bought it this weekend as part of the 10% off…. :/

    Is it safe to say Rogue Legacy will be the crossbuy (as it is now) with PS4/PS3?

  • JotaEseTheGeek

    Nevermind…saw it in article…

  • Good month for PS3 users. Gonna have to re-sub to + so I can give Yakuza & Thief a go.

  • TheGreek1022

    Pretty underwhelming selection for PS4. More than a year after its release and only 2 AAA titles. It would be nice to see more AAA titles.

  • Great birthday present for me in the 3rd, been wanting to try thief since its been available! Rogue legacy on my vita is a plus too, playstation plus.. ;)

  • What a great month! Rogue Legacy and Transistor are both games I’ve been dying to play! Thank you!

  • @49 If you mean the 14 days trial, it’s been available since December.

  • Yay for transistor!!

    Boo for rogue legacy only because I was tired of waiting for plus and just up and bought it 3 weeks ago. Lol

  • I like this month. This is a good month.

  • ilia_auditore

    Thief for PS3 but not for PS4 :\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

  • Best month ever.

    Thief, Yakuza 4(thank you SEGA), Rogue Legacy( Love this game….finally can play on the Vita for trophies), Transistor…nice.

  • To anyone feeling down because they had already bought one or more of these games before they were announced for free I have a suggestion for you. After playing Infamous First Light I wanted to play Second Son. Instead of buying it I decided to wait and see if Sony would pull a double whammy and make it free for February to compliment First Light from January.

    Moral of the story: don’t buy any games in the last week or 2 until Sony makes an official announcement and the free games are known.

    Now I’m going to go pick up Second Son.

    PS: Dear Sony. Waiting until the last possible moment to announce PS Plus free offerings causes a dip in potential sales for nearly half the month. Please consider putting some more forethought into which games you will offer for free and announce them earlier. Middle of the month announcement would go a long way to help solve this.

  • What load of crap! PS4 owners get one good month then back to the same old junk. Was Thief on PS4 that hard to pull off? Good thing I’m still playing First Light.

  • Valhalladeath

    Wow! Great month of games!

  • Seriously? The PS3 version of Thief? I don’t want indies on my PS4. I hope PS+ will have value this year on PS4, First Light was an ok start then you backtrack and give us indies again.

  • YES! Off to a great start this year with PS+. Keep it up! I am very excited to play Transistor. Was ready to pick it up on the next sale.

  • Great Month! Thanks!!! n_n

    Rogue Legacy! Transistor!

  • chikity-type0

    Great month!! Always wanted to try Yakuza 4

  • Transistor (PS4) and Thief (PS3) is a play for me!
    Not an awesome bundle but hey! at least i am getting 1 play out of it :3
    Going to plat Transistor the first day! :D

  • jrodrigoguerra
