Another month has come to pass, but alas there is once again reason to rejoice! Sony and Microsoft have announced the free games available with their premium services, Playstation Plus and Xbox Live Gold Memberships.
Up first, Sony. Playstation users are in for quite a treat in the upcoming month. With 4 games for PS4 users and 2 critically acclaimed titles for PS3 there is something for everyone here!
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (PS4)
A visually stunning chapter in a long-running, deeply complex series. This nail-biting mission onto a Cuban military base follows Snake as he attempts to rescue Paz from enemy imprisonment.
Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition (PS4)
This turn-based strategy game turned a lot of undead heads with its story of a Samurai Afterlife. Build an army of the undead, battle your opponents, and regain your honor.
Super Exploding Zoo (PS Vita | PS4)
Players must defend all the precious animal eggs in the zoo from evil aliens who want to eat said eggs. How do you defend these tasty treats? With a herd of explosive animals, obviously.
Futuridium EP Deluxe (PS Vita | PS4)
A psychedelic, retro-inspired shooter with crazy action, puzzle elements, and a bumping electronic soundtrack. May or may not induce random dance parties.
Call of Juarez: Gunslinger (PS3)
This first-person shooter celebrates the wild west in a big, bloody way. Take down anyone unlucky enough to cross bounty hunter Silas Greaves.
Cloudberry Kingdom (PS3)
The dev team behind this insane 2D platformer spent 2 years building an AI that could build a near-infinite number of levels for any difficulty. It looks totally bananacakes. Good luck with that!
