Mutant Mudds, Discounts And Blacklight: Retribution Gifts Hit PlayStation Plus
It’s Tuesday, which means it is once again time for the PlayStation Plus Fairy to visit all of the good little gamers around the US and bestow upon them loads of presents and discounts. This week’s haul includes a copy of Mutant Mudds Deluxe for the PlayStation Vita, savings on a ton of titles, as well as a special gift for Blacklight: Retribution players to help celebrate the game’s transition out of beta.
First, we’ll kick things off with Mutant Mudds, this week’s addition to the Instant Game Collection. As a reminder, next Tuesday is the first week of July and, unless plans have changed at PlayStation HQ, that means all of July’s new IGC titles will be launched in one shotgun blast of awesomeness, rather than trickled out throughout the month. In other words, you might want to clear off some space on your various hard drives and memory cards, because next Tuesday is going to hit them all pretty hard.
As for Mutant Mudds Deluxe, it’s a beloved indie game that’s made its way to just about every platform at this point and, just in case you still haven’t played it, you can finally check it out on the PS Vita at no additional cost via Plus.
“Mutant Mudds Deluxe is a ’12-bit’ action platformer full of pixels and platforming fun,” reads the weekly Plus announcement. “Our hero, Max, may be just a 2D sprite, but he can leap into the third dimension by jetting between the background and the foreground playfields with his trusty jetpack in this unique dimensionally-woven experience.”
If you’ve got Plus and room on your Vita, you can download Mutant Mudds once today’s weekly PSN update goes live. If, however, you’d rather save some cash on various other titles, then this week’s update has you covered in that department, too.
First up is the annual Summer Sale, which is offering discounts on games like Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, Castlestorm, Deception IV: Blood Ties, Escape Plan and Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends. Everyone on PSN will enjoy discounts on these titles and more, with Plus subscribers enjoying even deeper savings.
As if that wasn’t enough, there are several other Plus discounts, just for the hell of it. You can get Battlefield 4 on the PS3 for $24.49, for instance, or the new Blue Estate on the PS4 for $15.99. For a full rundown of these week’s sales, refer back to that original post.
Finally, Blacklight: Retribution will at long last be moving out of “beta” and launching as it’s fully-featured self today and, to celebrate, Plus subscribers will be getting a few additional goodies to help enhance the festivities. While the game goes live today, however, the Plus benefits are not set in stone for today but, according to the announcement will be available in the near future.
When the Plus gift pack goes live, it will simply be added into your in-game account. It includes the Burstfire SMG, a Revival Injector upgrade, as well as 250 ZCoins to be spent on other items/upgrades in the PlayStation Store.
Blacklight: Retribution is a free-to-play first-person shooter for the PlayStation 4, so maybe give it a gander if you haven’t already, yeah?
