Is a AAA free game coming for September 2016? Sony

At the end of every month, PlayStation Plus subscribers start getting anxious to see what Free Games are happening.  At this writing, the PlayStation Plus free games for November 2015 have not been announced, but there are a lot of suggestions as to what they could be. 

The Latin Post pointed out a problem with a lot of the PlayStation Plus Free Games, and that they are not often well-received by fans.  It went so far with a sarcastic user saying that November's free games list will bring six indie games that only a few people would care about.

Many are wondering if PS Plus is intending to give any more AAA titles to its fans, or will it continue to try and put out indie titles.  Not that there is anything wrong with indie titles, but it is just that PS Plus subscribers pay for the free games, and they want the best ones.  Honestly, some of the best games have been indie titles, but if fans don't want them, then they will get angry. 

One fan has pointed out that the PS4 is about to enter its 2-year anniversary, which could prompt them to celebrate by giving away some decent AAA game.  Some suggestions that have come up on Bidness Etc include Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag.  This isn't the first time that this game was rumored to be free, and perhaps this time will be true. 

Another game suspected to be free is Watch Dogs.  The game has had mixed reviews, but many enjoyed its open world with hacking.  Offering it for free would definitely boost its audience, and there will probably a Watch Dogs 2 released very soon

Suggested free titles have also included Knack and Killzone: Shadowfall, which were launched exclusively for the PS4, and would be viable candidates if Sony wanted to just give those away.  Then there are titles that we have suggested before like Shovel Knight and even Battlefield Hardline.

Whatever the case, the new free games for November 2015 are going to be announced this week, as the month of October doesn't have a lot of days left in it.  This gives PlayStation Plus subscribers only a few days to play the October selection that includes the following:

The first is Super Meat Boy, made for the PS4 and PS Vita.  If you are not familiar with Super Meat Boy, the player controls Meat Boy as he tries to rescue his girlfriend Bandage Girl from Dr. Fetus.  The gameplay is a difficult platformer as Meat Boy uses his ability to jump and escape a lot of very sharp obstacles. 

The second game available for the PS4 and PS Vita is Broken AgeBroken Age, according to the Steam Store, is "a family friendly, hand-animated, puzzle-filled adventure game with an all-star cast that includes Elijah Wood, Jack Black, and Masasa Moyo".  This "coming of age" story was designed by Tim Schafer, who has designed other hit games like Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle, and a few Monkey Island games. 

For the PS3, it is possible to download Chariot.  The official website describes this game as a co-op platformer that can be played alone or with a friend.  The one or two players take the roles of a brave princess and her beautiful fiancée as they move the departed king's coffin-on-wheels through 25 levels set in 5 underground environments.  Yes, that is an unusual premise, and what makes it even more unusual is that occasionally the king's ghost will guide the two players along the way. 

For both PS4 and PS3 is Unmechanical: Extended.  According to Grip Games, the game is a puzzle adventure game that "combines tricky puzzle solving, alluring exploration, and an engrossing atmosphere".  Unmechanical: Extended takes place in a world of flesh, rock, and steel, and the action is about a robot trapped in an underground complex, who must make his way up to freedom by solving a lot of puzzles. 

There are two games available for the PS3 and PS Vita that include Kickbeat and Kung Fu Rabbit.  Kung Fu Rabbit is what it sounds like, a game where the player plays a rabbit who knows Kung Fu.  In this case, the main character must go on a quest after all of the baby rabbits are abducted by unknown invaders. 

As for Kickbeat, it also has a Kung Fu theme, but it is a rhythm game.  It is also a fighting game as well.  It sounds interesting, and the Steam Store says it features fully 3D characters and high-energy music and allows the user to put their own music in for custom KickBeat tracks.
