If you're subscribed to PlayStation Plus and still racking up some discounts, deals and free games each month, you'll be pleased with the selection of titles across the PS3, PS Vita and PS4 that Sony has made freely available for PS Plus subscribers for the month of July.
Game Informer is reporting that there are six games available for free for PlayStation owners, assuming someone has in their possession a PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and a PlayStation Vita
For PlayStation 4 owners they'll gain access to the upcoming hack-and-slash game Furi and Volition Software's Saints Row: Gat out of Hell, the standalone expansion that followed Saints Row IV. The game Furi looks like it's going to be one super rocking wild ride. You probably haven't seen Furi all that much but it's an arena-style hack-and-slash game with an awesome art-style and a focus on stylized sword fighting and melee combat. There's a cool soundtrack that lends itself well to the neon visuals, and the game is designed to pay homage to titles like Ninja Gaiden Black and Devil May Cry. It's a really awesome looking title and it's cool that Sony is giving that one away for free via PlayStation Plus.
Saints Row: Gat out of Hell might be the sort of game that's a little less anticipated by PS Plus members, but the open-world action title will be free so I don't think too many people will complain. The game features a different take on the traditional Saints Row setup, putting players in the role of Gat, the right-hand man of the purple-themed gang, The Saints.
After Gat was rescued from aliens in the main campaign of Saints Row IV, players will take control of the foul-mouthed, violent gangster alongside Kinzie, the hacker. The duo attempt to save the soul of the Saints Row leader after its abducted by Satan. Unlike the other entries you won't be able to customize Gat or Kinzie, but you can gain access to some supernatural, celestial or demonic powers along the way.
The Gat out of Hell standalone expansion sometimes gets mixed reactions because it's essentially a retread of the maps from Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row IV. It's also fairly short for what it is, but given that it's free there's really nothing to lose. Most gamers note that the whole thing can be completed within the span of about five to six hours.
PlayStation 3 owners will have access to Fat Princess, the platforming game, and Call of Juarez: Bound In Blood. It's interesting that they choose the Bound In Blood game out of the Call of Juarez series. It's always been labeled as a mediocre shooting series and is the second out out of the four games. It proceeds the original Call of Juarez from 2005, and was followed by the gosh-awful Call of Juarez: The Cartel. Thankfully Ubisoft and Techland managed to recover the series with Call of Juarez: Gunslinger.
PlayStation Vita owners will have access to Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines, the turn-based JRPG, and Ubisoft's Prince of Persia: Revelation.
Additionally, PS Plus members will be able to access Epic Games' Paragon for free, ahead of its August 16th open beta date, and they'll receive a free Starter Pack that's worth $40.
