PlayStation Plus: Free Games for February 2018

Knack and Rime lead the PS Plus lineup going live next week.

February is a short month, so be sure to plan accordingly with all of these great games coming to PS Plus this month!

First up, we have RiME. This single player puzzle adventure is set in a beautiful world where you play as a young boy who has awakened on a mysterious island after a torrential storm. Armed with your wits and a will to overcome, you must explore this mysterious island, reach the tower’s peak, and unlock its closely guarded secrets.

PlayStation Plus February 2018: KnackPlayStation Plus February 2018: Rime

Next up is the family friendly adventure game Knack. Take control of Knack and his signature size-shifting abilities to protect the world from a dangerous threat – the invading Goblin Army. Knack is a fun-filled adventure that lets players wield fantastic powers and discover a uniquely vibrant world.

This month’s PlayStation Plus lineup also includes:

  • Spelunker HD, PS3
  • Mugen Souls Z, PS3
  • Exiles End, PS Vita
  • Grand Kingdom, PS Vita (Also available on PS4)

Just as a reminder, all PlayStation Plus members can get Starblood Arena as a bonus game through March 6. This arena combat game was built from the ground up to be played in VR with your PS VR headset*. Attack, evade, and move in any direction as you compete against pilots from across the galaxy. You’ll fight for glory, credits, and your life.

Lastly, for all Gems of War fans, get your hands on the new PlayStation Plus Starter Pack starting February 13th through March 13th. The pack includes the Nobend Brothers troop, capable of causing all kinds of trouble on the gem board without even losing a turn. It also comes with 10 rare gem keys and 2,500 souls to level up all your new troops. Get started on your journey today!

And there you have it. See you next month!

  • Knack is a great game!

    • It’s a mastapiece!

    • LOL a Masterpiece that can’t even rank up a 60% score on Metacritic… I know, I know metacritic blablabla but still…

    • 10/10

    • KNACK BAIBEEE! A game so technologically advanced that it would anahilate the ps3 punny hardware limitations. IT’S A MAZTEPICE!

    • whereymyconary

      Not sure why knack got so much flack. I love that game, played it more then any PS4 launch title by far and still revisit when I’m playing locally with friends.

    • LTSwordmastre360

      Thank you so much for a lovely PS3 month! I know Mugen Souls Z is a little old at this point, but I had never even heard of the series until it landed on Steam in more recent years, I’m eager to be able to give it a play~!

      Spelunker looks similar to Spelunky which I like a lot too so no complaints there. In the event I get a 4K PS4 somewhere waaaaaaay down the line when they are discounted heavily, having Rime might be nice too.

      For future months, please keep us Playstation 3 players in consideration! There’s a ton of things that while old, would still be great to have like the Atelier series, Folklore, Dynasty/Samurai Warriors….etc…. More titles from Koei/NIS America/Atlus would all be welcomed~!

    • IMHO, Knack was not a great game but enjoyable for the co-op story campaign, but Knack II is one of the best co-op story campaign games that you can play and enjoy in recent memory.

      The difference in quality between the two is as wide as the difference between God of War (which I still feel is just okay) and God of War II which I still consider to be one of the best action-adventure games to date.

      I hope whomever gives the free Knack game a try and likes it okay enough, gives a second look to the far superior Knack II.

    • iamtylerdurden1

      Great lineup, i really enjoyed Knack and hopefully it will encourage ppl to get Knack 2 which is even better.

    • It’s absolutely RIDICULOUS how whoever writes these posts can’t even be bothered to state the EXACT DATE new games go live. As if it wasn’t important at all.

      Or is this the company policy?

    • abraves1221

      While I am always a firm believer that the discounts on games is where the true value of the Playstation Plus free games (especially the winter and summer sales) comes from I always find it funny when those “leaked” lists comes out with great AAA titles on it and people fall for it every time when almost every month the free games are not good AAA titles but indie games or AAA titles that sold horribly. They are free so no reason to complain and there is an occasional good AAA title or indy game on the list.

    • its great

    • ShadowOfEden

      The games always go out of the first tuesday of the month, which is usually the tuesday after this is posted.

    • @TVippy
      Games come out on Tuesday February 6th

    • @TVippy They don’t need to post dates as every PS+ member knows servers update every Tuesday. For free games, it will be the first Tuesday of the month and it has been like that since I can remember :P

    • BlackBriar37

      I liked the Photoshop version of this months line-up much better…PlayStation could learn a thing or two from the guy who made it. I paid for a year long membership a while back and I’ve been mostly disappointing in the benefits I’m getting from purchasing it. I don’t care what people say, Knack is bad. I feel like the only reason a lot of people get hyped about it is because of Dunkey.

    • MakaiOokami

      I’ve been meaning to go back to Knack. They have this thing where you use a mobile phone to do puzzles, and then the puzzles give you rewards, that then goes back into the main game, and I ended up playing the heck out of the mobile game for weeks and then just never went back into playing the actual game. I’ll have fewer excuses now that I don’t have to find the disc.

      From what I understand most of the negative reviews revolve around the following things.

      1. It’s very childish, story included.
      2. It’s actually kinda punishing… so you don’t want to actually ummm… have children play it.
      3. The campaign is a bit all over the place.

      But I guess since it’s a 3D Platformer Beat-em up game that punishes you but in a less rewarding way than a Souls game… It’s not for everyone. At least give it a try.

      Oh and they probably don’t mention when the game deals go live, because if you’re ready to beat Knack you’re going to need to be observant to behavior and since it drops at the same time, they figure it probably goes without saying. /snide comments

    • Lolithetrolli

      @TVippy new PS+ games are always released after the deadline of the previous free games. For instance, on the current free games’ store page it says “This price is only available from 1/2/2018 10:00 am to 2/6/2018 10:00 am.” Soo, the next batch of free games will be available on 2/6/2018 after 10:00 am.

    • Is there a way to save/add games to my library without downloading them. I’m trying to save my monthly bandwidth allocation while adding games to my collection.

    • You guys really need to LINK to the game page for each free game like Xbox does with their free games of the month announcement.

    • @D-LUCKS , yes just add to cart, and purchase them. Nothing forces you to download them. Once purchased for FREE, they will stay attached to your account and you can download from ps store any time

  • Xcaligamer1

    Praise knack!

  • Investor9872

    Finally, Knack. We now should get all of those “I told you so” posts.

  • Meh. Grand Kingdom it is then….

  • thank you so much guys, you are doing a great job since may last year, keep up the good work proud to be Ps Plus member

  • F_A_M_Z_187

    What a disappointing way to start of 2018!!!

  • Flop :(

  • GermaximusS

    I have PS Now (love PS Now!) which Knack is on so poop. =P Rime looks neat. Would have loved Far Cry 4. =P

    • Epsilon-Xero

      The Far Cry Deal is real…… Except if you’re a loyal customer and subscriber to PS Plus. Yup, sign up now and get a free digital copy of Far Cry 4, but hey, we get knack…. Which they’d also get. F me in the A, why doncha, Sony

  • bacontacocat

    I heard knack is a really bad game and I don’t know about rime so somebody tell me how’s rime

    • Nightprowler2009

      Knack is a great game, amazing visuals and game play, give it a try.

    • FirefightinGamer

      It’s a good game but not worth 2 plays. The biggest flaw is that Knack is the only one with a personality. When controlling knack it seems as if no one really cares about knacks true well being and I honestly could care less if any of the characters were killed off

    • whereymyconary

      Haha well that’s all true as in no one is nice the knack. And the sequel makes it even feel more apparent. But on the plus side the controls are great and it’s like a dark souls for kids. Plan to get brutalized. 3 hit hits against everything. Only downside is the story which as they said above is kind of abusive (in a neglectful kind of way)

    • MystafaRebirth

      The Far Cry Deal is real…… Except if you’re a loyal customer and subscriber to PS Plus. Yup, sign up now and get a free digital copy of Far Cry 4, but hey, we get knack…. Which they’d also get. F me in the A, why doncha, Sony

    • Time has that new way of graphics like the witness that I have seen around lately
      Its a puzzle game… Would say between the last guardian and the witness… The difficulty of the last guardian and visuals of the witness not the other way around.
      I got up to half of the game and kinda lost interest :/

    • iamtylerdurden1

      Knack is actually really fun and Knack 2 is fantastic.

      Rime is an excellent game with great reviews.

      Grand Kingdom is an rpg with solid reviews.

      Exiles End is a fun Metroidvania.

      Knack and Rime are actually very good PS+ offerings. Knack is a AAA and Rime is a high level indie with great reviews.

  • Nice! Rime is one I’ve been wanting to play, and Grand Kingdom will be a nice game to have digitally since it’s cross save. Exile’s End looks interesting at least.

  • Finally Rime! A game I don’t actually already own! Grand Kingdom, the other game that had similar combat to Indivisible but didn’t look nearly as good. I’ll still give it a shot though. I’m starting to feel like Sony should just discontinue giving out games for the PS3 and Vita though because man, they are scraping the bottom of the barrel. Half the time its games I’ve never even heard of. Just these generic looking games. At least if they stopped giving outgames for those systems they could afford to give out better games on PS4 consistently.

    • What are you talking about? Mugen Souls Z is a great game and pretty well known amongst the anime gaming community.

    • DarkDanMan1

      I would be disappointed if they stopped giving free games for the Vita. I play my Vita more than any other system, including my PS4. It’s so much easier playing portable games, than it is being chained to a television screen. Besides, since when is Grand Kingdom the “bottom of the barrel”? That’s a AAA game.

  • Awesome line-up… been waiting to play RIME for ages. Knack doesn’t get much love, but excited to try it.

  • All those idiots who kept saying they should give us Knack now have to play it and find out that they were idiots

    • It’s not nice to call people names because they like something that you don’t. Taste is subjective

  • infamousgodV2_0

    Finally games i dont aready own ! And so glad i didnt buy Rime over the holidays

  • Potter13579

    I’m actually surprised it took them 4 years to finally add Knack to PS Plus, but seriously, Knack is a good game I really enjoyed at the PS4 launch. It’s not amazing by any means, but people seriously give it too much hate than it really deserves.

    • FirefightinGamer

      I agree it’s a really good game. Not worth much hate at all. I just don’t think it’s worth 2 play throughs unless you need to do it for the trophies

  • Well I brought Knack awhile back on Discount but never started it. Perhaps it’s a good time to start. I am slightly disappointed that we didn’t get Far Cry 4 maybe in the future some time.

  • jgrizzle358

    Rime is soooooooo good. To my fellow Gamers out there don’t be one of those jerks that judges it just on the graphics. Play that game. It is an amazing beautiful game. Feels like a mix of Zelda and Journey

  • Came here to read the comments from “gamers” complaining about the selection of games for the month.

    The sense of entitlement grows stronger by the year.

    Did not leave disappointed.

    • You’re welcome

    • FirefightinGamer

      I think that if you pay for a service that tells you you get free games then you have a right to voice your opinion about it. It’s not entitlement, it’s your right as a paying costumer

    • $ .62 a game and they have to whine. Sad.

  • knightsdeck

    i will be getting the plats for Knack and Rime. “Believe it”

  • Dunkey confirm this line up

  • Where’s Dark Souls 2?!?

    Darn Redditt!!!

  • infamousgodV2_0

    Oh i’ll be the first to say this line has just been Knackered

  • Rime! So worth it just for that alone.

  • Knack? Nahhh
    RiME? Hell, yeah

  • golpe_criticoUS

    compared to the games of january, this is dissapointing, knack is as boring as you can get, rime looks like it goes in the same category, my only hope for something interesting is grand kingdom

  • hero_sergio

    Rime, ok. I’m really excited to play it. But Knack?! It’s a launch title for the PS4 debut, but is not a problem. The problem is that it isn’t a good one…

    • boychik0830

      I agree knack is not very good. when I got my PS4 I got knack but I exchanged it for something else as it was not fun. this is one of the better lineups we have in a while for all systems. thank god there is not another visual novel game this month.

  • Grand Kingdom is really the gem in this lineup.

  • Yes. Grand Kingdom

  • xFallenxWolfx

    So disappointing, knack is trash we deserve better.

  • pt1029384756

    I hope you guys are happy that your meme has been finally fullfilled. Please don’t ask for terrible games as a joke again

  • Knack 1 or 2? I see two games in store. Knack 1 is a game from 2013.

  • Give me Far Cry 4 + Dark Souls II

    what a deception !!!

  • tundramonkeyV2

    For a free ps+ i think it’s ok. I’ve played it before and it’s an okay platformer.

  • where is Far Cry? Far Cry? FAR CRY?

  • Here comes the money.

    PS+ redeemed.

  • KNACK BABY!!!!!!!!!
    so funny, but I’m actually excited to play this with my kids.

    • I played it with my kids last year, and they loved it. My boy (6) was sad when we beat it and the game was over.
      But then we got Knack 2 for Christmas, and it was game on! Co-op is awesome when you play with your kid. You can help them out through all the difficult parts, but they still help and contribute all the time. Perfect father/son bonding game.
      And my 4 y.o. girl loved watching every minute of it.

  • EverythingOnFire

    Rime is very good, and it’s an easy platinum (as long as you’re willing to put in a bit of time).

    I hope they typo’d with Exiles End. There’s no reason that shouldn’t be cross-buy.

  • I waited a few years for Knack to be PS+, it betta be a Masterpiece. (Nudge Killzone ShadowFall)

    Rime…heard good things. Easy Plat too. Looking forward to playing it.

    3 Japanese games…hopefully this trend continues. Grand Kingdom is my number 1 title for Feb.

    Waiting for Resistance Burning Skies as a Vita offering.

  • Damn good lineup

  • Here are some games I would like to see with plus in the coming months

    Soma
    Octodad
    Bloodborne
    The last of us remastered

    Already have these two ps4 games they are decent but not amazing.

  • Knack is ok, but Rime is what makes February special!

  • So is PS4 getting one game or what? Also I’m disappointed by the lack of good games people would actually enjoy. I only saw one good game on here and that’s it.

    We have to pay more money just to use online games like overwatch. A lot of us have to pay 60$ just for a 12 month membership and that was originally 50$ but changed halfway last year.

    I hope you guys actually give us some Game we can actually enjoy soon.

    • jgrizzle358

      1. PS4 is getting free games this month or can you not read?

      2. Good is a 100% subjective term when it comes to video games. I would rather play games like this before crap like Call of Duty personally.

      3. It is physically impossible for them to Pander to everybody’s individual taste every single month of the year. Because everybody likes different things. No matter what they do there will always be somebody upset every month because that month doesn’t Pander to them even if a different month did. You are not going to get something you like every month unless you are extremely open-minded like me and play Everything

    • PS4 is getting three* games

  • FirefightinGamer

    Knack is the only game I played and I liked it. It just didn’t have replay value other than trophies. The characters where blah and didn’t care about knack. I didn’t grow to care about any of the characters either. I say this is a good line up for those wanting to know if they should buy knack 2 or have been wondering about any of these titles. I’ll be dl’n knack for my children but that’s all that I think I’ll get.

  • I heard there was supposed to be Dark Souls 2 and Far Cry 4 instead of Knack and Rime…

    • jgrizzle358

      That’s why you shouldn’t believe uncomfirmed rumors on the internet. Those are usually started by trolls.

  • jgrizzle358

    I’m just going to urge everyone to be open-minded and actually try these games before judging them. They are free so it’s not like there’s any risk to you worst case scenario you don’t like it and you delete it. But at least then you can say you were mature enough to actually try it before judging it. Which is what really matters.

    Rime especially is deserving of a chance. It is a beautiful game that brought tears to my eyes.

    • I agree with you here. I myself don’t have the funds for games so rely on PS+ to get extras. However I lost PS+ back in October or so and haven’t had the funds to activate it again. With the way things are going, I won’t get it again for awhile.

  • KNACK BABYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

  • TheUnknownMurda

    StarBlood Arena, Again -_-

  • THE-PLASTICA-MAN

    Thanks for the games but why isn’t Exile’s End cross-compatible offering the PS4 version too?

  • God D@MNIT!! I just bought Grand Kingdom! It was on sale this month. I promise you, I will never buy a “indie ish” game on sale EVER again because its just going to be free next month.

  • Glory-For-MUFC

    Is this for PS+ us or Asia?
