The monthly games for PlayStation Plus subscribers in February have been announced. From Tuesday, February 2nd, members can download Destruction AllStars (PS5), Control: Ultimate Edition (PS5 & PS4) and Concrete Genie (PS4). Destruction AllStars was originally set to be a PS5 launch title. However, with the delay, they also promised that it would be free in February with PS+. This continues the trend of a mixture of PS5 and PS4 games that has been the case since the new console came out.
Pile on the destruction from behind the wheel or on-foot in the global phenomenon that is Destruction AllStars.
With this vehicular combat game, players can master various tactics and skills in various stylish arenas, both in single-player and multiplayer. There will be lots of destructive mayhem that doesn’t stop when your car is destroyed. Seemingly a spiritual successor to Twisted Metal, this game was heavily marketed in the lead up to the PS5’s release and is set to take full advantage of the hardware. Alongside the PS+ announcement, Sony also released a new State of Play detailing more about this game. Also, Destruction AllStars will be available for two months compared to the usual one-month availability.
Control: Ultimate Edition
A corruptive presence has invaded the Federal Bureau of Control…Only you have the power to stop it. The world is now your weapon in an epic fight to annihilate an ominous enemy through deep and unpredictable environments. Containment has failed, humanity is at stake. Will you regain control?
Control was very well received when it was originally released in 2019. Many critics praised Remedy Entertainment’s game for its intriguing world and story as well as its varied and fun gameplay. The Ultimate Edition includes all previously released DLC along with next-gen enhancements. Don’t worry though, PS4 users can still claim this title.
Paint your world to life. Use the power of your imagination to transform the polluted streets of Denska into a colourful landscape of creativity.
This title is the only PS4 exclusive available as part of February’s PlayStation Plus games, but of course, PS5 users can access it through backward compatibility. In Concrete Genie, players must harness the power of Living Paint in the abandoned town of Denska while enduring threats from pollution and bullies. Pixelopus’ game was praised for its visuals and art-based gameplay back when it came out in October 2019.
The PlayStation Plus February games will be available to keep for as long as you have an active subscription to the service. So be sure to add the game to your library so that it’s available to download whenever you fancy a new game. Xbox’s alternative service, Xbox Live Gold, recently came under fire for a price increase before a sudden U-turn. Time will tell if Sony attempts something similar but likely not anytime soon based on gamers’ reaction to Microsoft’s decision.
