Sony PS Plus
PS Plus has been ramping up its free game selection in recent months with games like Batman: Arkham Knight and Nioh, and December’s selection continues that momentum for the most part.
The “free” game selection is headlined by Titanfall 2, a brilliant game that’s rather unfortunately remembered for earning critical acclaim but completing failing to move the needle in terms of its commercial performance.
If you remember, Respawn’s shooter launched in a busy window back in 2016, wedged in between Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Battlefield 1, which more or less doomed its chances of selling big.
It was a sad ending for what should have been the Titanfall IP’s big coming-out party — when a solid campaign was finally matched to the interesting but unexplored lore teed up in the multiplayer-only original.
While it’s certainly a shame that Titanfall 2 didn’t get its chance to shine properly, at least it’ll surely get plenty of playtime now it’s a PS Plus freebie in December.
Moving on, Monster Energy Supercross: The Video Game is your second offering on PS Plus in December. It definitely doesn’t have the same pedigree as Titanfall 2, with just a 67% on review aggregation site Metacritic.
The game features a career mode for 250SX and 450SX class riders, as well as a track editor and a selection of typical online modes.
