The Bigger Game – Horizon Zero Dawn
PS Plus Free Games Predictions
Every month, a few free games are gifted to subscribers of Sony’s online PS Plus program. While the official list from Sony for February 2020 has yet to be released, we have a few predictions as to what those free games might be.
For the previous month of January 2020 we got some great titles, like Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection which includes the first three Uncharted games, as well as Goat Simulator which provides a healthy dose of whacky gameplay.
Usually one larger game headlines the list, and it’s looking like Horizon Zero Dawn is a promising AAA inclusion.
It’s been almost three years since Horizon Zero Dawn released in February 2017, a very standard length of time for Sony to start considering if for PS Plus.
However the biggest indicator that Horizon Zero Dawn will be on the free games list next month or likely sometime very soon is the fact that it’s price has been drastically reduced over the last year or so, and it often goes on sale at ridiculously low prices such as $9.99 over the course of Black Friday this year.
Another Guerrilla Games title has also been included on PS Plus in the past, being Killzone Mercenary in April 2015.
Since Horizon Zero Dawn is a Sony published title this makes it much more likely it will come to PS Plus in the future as well. It’s safer for Sony to use exclusive titles and in the past it has shown it is willing to do so, with games like the Uncharted trilogy last month, The Last of Us Remastered in October 2019, Until Dawn in July 2017, and many more.
