Spring Fever 2015: 8 Weeks, 8 New PS4 Games, PS Plus Discounts

Hi everyone! March is here, and that means it’s time for our annual Spring Fever promotion with discounts for PlayStation Plus members on hot new digital-only games each week. This year, Spring Fever is going to last eight weeks – that’s twice as long as last year – with new PS4 games launching each week.

Spring Fever 2015

Over the next two months, we’re shining a light on some of the most unique titles coming to PS4 from incredibly talented developers and discounting their games for PS Plus members during each game’s launch week. This year’s lineup features PlayStation console-exclusive titles, as well as classic franchises making their debut on PS4. And if you haven’t made the jump to PS4 yet, don’t fret – a number of these games are also launching on PS3 and/or PS Vita as well.

Spring Fever kicks off next Tuesday, March 3rd with the launch of Helldivers from Arrowhead Game Studios. It’s a hardcore twin stick shooter perfect for four-player co-op madness. PS Plus members can pick up Helldivers next week at a sweet 10 percent discount. Here’s the full Spring Fever lineup:

    Wow……10% off…..so……generous?

  • ShadowFox014

    HELLDIVERS. I’m so ready. :3 I’ve been waiting for that game for a while; it looks way too epic and fun to NOT purchase day one! :P

  • OMG…what a lineup!

    My List:
    Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number
    Axiom Verge
    Bastion
    Titan Souls
    Shovel Knight

  • So many to pick up, not enough money…

  • The_Codefinder

    Oh boy, what a generous discount for PS+ subscribers. I wish there was an incentive to purchase multiple games, like last year’s buy 2 get $3 back, buy 3 get $5 back, etc.

  • ultimatepunchrod

    Can’t wait for Axiom Verge, Hotline Miami, and Bastion. I’m super excited right now.

  • Axiom Verge, Basion, and Shovel Knight for me!

  • rune_quester

    Pretty happy to see Bastion make it to the consoles. Jamestown + has my interest as well, I really liked the original but I hate playing it on hte computer.

  • All good releases and highly anticipated. But adding Super Time Force Ultra to the list would complete my Spring season while I wait for 4 feet of snow melt away.

  • Sweet! Ill be picking up a couple during this sale.

  • Those $20 games better have Platinums attached to them. That’s BS. Not supporting $20 digital download games at that price.

  • Dangisuckatgamin

    Yay save $2 on overpriced Indies.

  • yowzagabowza

    Are you all on crack? WTF am i guna do with 10%? Its a freakin kick in the balls. Thanks for absolutely nothing. All the games except Titan Souls are over priced to begin with and your crappy “sale” aint convincing me to buy.

    At least we know the prices early. Usually you tetards guard that info til the last day.

    Do better sony, you ha e been sucking at pretty much everything lately. Like, i dunno, updating the store without a bunch of problems, or, hmmm, saying games will be on sale then changing it. Whatever, though, keep pushin those plus memberships.

  • ZiggyPoopdust

    I’m buying at least five of these as they come out.

    Also, SHOVEL KNIGHT on Vita!!!! S***!!!!!

    Also def getting Hotline Miami 2, Axiom Verge, Metal Slug 3, and Titan Souls.

  • I would like to see a 15 for ’15 sale or just another 99 cent indie flash sale with Journey, Cubixx HD, and Flower.

  • Is this just for the US PSN Store? or also the EU/AUSNZ?

  • Please don’t tell me those franchise sales will take the place of the awesome developer sales we’ve been getting lately. If that’s the case, if you have no interest in those franchises, there’s nothing for you for about two months. That stinks.

  • In other words, KEEP PUTTING PS1 and PSP GAMES ON SALE PLEASE!!!

  • I’m hoping for a Sega, Xseed, Atlus, and a Sqaure sale that doesn’t include just FF titles.

  • @14 – I noticed the same thing. The sales just keep keeping a little worse. It’s a slow creep
    @16 – you’re probably right. At least 1 or 2 will be free before the end of the year.
    @20 – I’m just as excited as you!
    @26 – I agree with every one of your points. Since when did digital games become more expensive to distribute?
    @39 – when did indie games start costing $20 each? Pretty sure Sony is trying to price them all out of the market. Let’s go check Steam prices to compare…

  • shovel knight, hotline miami 2, bastion, titan souls… omg great games!!! i hope nice discounts on god of war games, and maybe again the fighting games sale please! thanks!!! gw!

  • Why is the LEGO game week not the same as the LEGO movie week? It could have been the LEGO week of Playstation! Maybe even launch an exclusive LEGO theme just for that week.

  • Regarding the new games, I find my self in agreement with many others. They’re just too pricey, even with the discounts. Not only that, but all of these games are either going to be on sale or free in Plus! at some point in the future. For example, I wanted Atelier Totori Plus on Vita when it came out a while back, but I also wasn’t going to pay $40. I simply waited until this week and picked it up at less than half of the original price. My point is that everything goes on sale eventually.
    With that being said, what I’m going to do is take advantage of the sales and play those games. Then in a few months, when the new games here are on sale, I’ll be happy to pick them up. Next week is the Lego game sale – that’s perfect as I still don’t have many of the games on Vita.

  • Mike_Kelehan

    Jamestown is a fun one, played it on PC. Great bullet hell shooter with a colonial American theme, but in space. Definitely check it out if that sounds as cool to you as it did to me.

  • Bastion is the only thing here Im planning to pick up. Interesting Indies for me seem to be very rare

  • that said, these prices are *still* too much. Most of these games are/have been cheaper on Steam and/or Android for months or even years (in the case of Bastion). I’ll wait for a deeper discount now that I look at pricing as these are simply unimpressive ‘sales’. It sucks that Indie devs think they can charge so much more from console gamers than on platforms like PC or tablets

  • What a great next couple of months for PS4 owners!

  • maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan this is too hype

  • no discount for buying multiple promoted titles? this is a bet you’re going to lose, and it’s going to hurt these indie developers.

    I’m interested in everything except Hotline MIami 2, but the changing the concept of Spring Fever promotion means I’ll be waiting for deeper discounts. I was even a backer of Shovel Knight (and Shantae), and I’ve bought Bastion twice before to support a great developer.

    It’s too bad :(

  • Great games but too expensive.Nowadays with my backlog,I must wait for all of them to be on a good discount of $5 or less.I maybe but just maybe buy Metal Slug because well…its Metal Slug.

  • PsychoDave226

    AWESOME Releases! Can’t wait for Shovel Knight, Bastion, and of course Axiom Verge. Thank you so much guys!

  • Sweet I want at least 4 of those! Add bloodborne and whatever comes out of the gta sale to mortal kombat and payday 2 crime wave edition and I will be in a great place for summer game a thons

  • Metal Slug 3
    Bastion
    Shovel Knight

    I plan to make these all mine. BTW I hope in that Assassin’s Creed sale all the season passes from the older games get huge discounts.

  • It has been very sad for PS Plus members.
    Remember back in the day the IGC would have at least a couple decent games per month?
    Remember PS Plus discounts were actually worth it?
    I do.
    Sony has gotten a record number of new PS Plus Subscriptions, one would think they would keep up the pace. But no.
    If I had any kind of voice about this, I would say let’s all let our PS Plus expire and maybe Sony would actually listen for once.
    PS Plus is lacking substance.
    PS Vita needs a reboot.
    PS Now needs to drop half the price.
    PS Move died on arrival
    Music Unlimited recently died
    Video Unlimited is way to expensive
    PS Plus discounts needs to be reconfigured
    IGC needs to be refreshed, drop 1 vita and 1 PS3 and add 2 more PS4 games per month. There are plenty of old PS4 games that can be given away for free, Bound by Flame, Putty, Knack, Thief, MGS Ground Zero, Black Flag, Transformers, Spider-Man… I just named 8 decent games that is way better than the crap we have been getting for the past year and a half.

  • Crap! I was hoping for Helldivers to be a part of March free ps+ offerings. I guess I was wrong. :(

  • I’m a little disappointed that there’s no extra incentive like previous years (buy X number of games, get X back), or a preorder deals, or whatever.

    Not that disappointed though.

    What is considerably more disappointing is the lack of March’s Plus lineup. It’s the last Thursday of the month, so like…..where is it?

    (Note: I will immediately feel like a d*** for complaining if it goes up in like an hour or something)

  • PlayStation: Killing wallets dead since 1994. Can’t wait to play and get almost all of these (I really excited for Axiom Verge, Jamestown, Bastion, Hotline Miami 2, Helldivers and Titan Souls)!

  • RadioactivePanic

    Hopefully I can convince my 2 brothers and my cousin to get Helldivers so we can engage in jolly cooperation!

  • HELLDIVERS and Bastion! Sad that Bastion is so far away though. :(

  • 10% isn’t even a reason to buy but I might get Shovel Knight.

  • while i agree the prices are getting too expensive for these indies to balme sony ofr them is not accurate. the publisher sets the base price of games not Sony

  • This month is gonna be good, i should prepare my wallet.

  • synysterkill-07

    Will the PS+ games be announced today? The final Thursday of each month seems to be ‘the norm’ for new game announcements. Looking forward to what might be available now that Helldiver has a price I’m guessing ‘White Night’ MIGHT be the freebie? Please throw us a bone I always get excited this time of month. Haha

  • TheOathsworn

    Shovel Knight and Jamestown+ are most likely the only things I’m getting,
    I’m also not expecting much from the Franchise sale, especially with the publishers that are involved with some of the listed Franchises.

  • Whoah awesome, can’t wait for Axiom Verge!

  • metal slug 3 just a port? It better have a ton of bonuses otherwise it’s not worth it, specially
    when I can just play the classics on my vita.

  • Yeah I’m buying all of them except for maybe Metal Slug 3. Been so excited for Shovel Knights release for PS4 and Vita.

  • the-machine-24

    That’s a great program, but over at the European PS Blog there were no news at all regarding Spring Fever 2015, at least not today :-( Hopefully it is also coming to us.

  • TheSnowmanSaint

    All of this, absolutely yes. Titan Souls I got my eyes on you.

  • So much crossbuy. Would be cool if there was like a buy three get one free or something like that. All solid games. I look forward to my Hotline Miami 2 platinum.
