Sony Announces February PlayStation Plus Lineup

One of the best traditions of every month is finding out what free stuff PlayStation Plus subscribers will be treated to in the coming days. While we still don’t know when, or if, that elusive Driveclub PS Plus Edition is going to come out, this month’s lineup more than makes up for that absence with its quality. From our PlayStation 4 Game of the Year to one of the best roguelikes ever, PlayStation fans are sure to get their fill in February.

PlayStation 4 owners will be treated to Transistor, the gorgeous strategy/action-RPG title from renowned indie developer Supergiant Games, and Apotheon, a 2D action-platformer set in the midst of Ancient Greece. Transistor’s inclusion should be met with a great deal of joy, as it is perhaps the best non-The Last of Us title on Sony’s newest console.

Those who own a PlayStation 3 will receive the wildly underrated Yakuza 4 and 2014’s Thief reboot. Though some, including the author of this post, have been openly critical of Thief, it’s hard to argue that it isn’t worth trying out for free. If you’re looking to get your AAA fix from PlayStation Plus, the PlayStation 3 lineup definitely has you covered.

Finally, Vita owners are slated to get arguably the best game out of all six (depending on whether or not you like Transistor) in Rogue Legacy. The procedurally-generated action-platformer is essentially “Crack the Video Game” and should give players hours upon hours of playtime. In addition, the intriguing action-adventure title Kick & Fennick will cost literally zero dollars for subscribers, so it’s definitely worth giving a shot to.

All in all, this appears to be a high-quality month for PlayStation Plus subscribers, as each console, especially the PS4 and Vita, seems to have a title that sticks out as particularly great.
