Sony PS Plus
Sony is following up its very solid showing in August with an even better lineup; September is headlined by Batman Arkham Knight and Darksiders III.
The grand finale is one of the best trilogies in the past decade, Arkham Knight realizes an even bigger and more beautiful open-world than its predecessor.
The introduction of the batmobile is also a neat feautre, though it does sometimes lean into vehicular combat a little too frequently for our tastes which often tasks players with mind numbingly boring sequences of shooting down drones.
Still, this is a gorgeous Batman experience that’s still among the best-looking console games this generation.
As for Darksiders III, it’s another finale to a popular trilogy –though one that rather blinded us all when it was announced. In typical THQ Nordic style it was revealed out of nowhere, reviving a franchise that hadn’t seen a new game in five years.
What we got was a decent experience, though nothing special –a game that appealed to its hardcore audience and probably not all that many outside of that. And that’s actually why it makes a great PS Plus game. Here’s your chance to see what Darksiders is all about…
