Users of the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation 3, and the PlayStation Vita always love to get a free deal, and those that are PlayStation Plus subscribers get a few free games each month. There is still half a month left to play the PlayStation Plus Free Games for November 2015, and here are some predictions for what will be available December 2015.
With December almost upon us, people look forward to the holiday season, and they look forward to some light and hope. Last year for December 2014, players received quite a gift with Injustice: God's Among Us as a special present. This game was a big AAA game set in the DC Universe, and it was quite the hit superhero fighting game. It stands to reason that some big AAA game is coming for December of this year.
So what will it be? Considering that Injustice was released in 2013, its season of newness had pretty much passed at the end of 2014, when it became available for free. One would recommend looking at what AAA game was big in mid-2014, and preparing room for it on whatever Sony PlayStation unit you have. In the meantime, this is what is available for the rest of November 2015:
For the PlayStation 4, users will receive The Walking Dead: Season 2, according to the PlayStation Blog. This is the game version of its own series from Telltale games. If you aren't familiar with Telltale, they put out a lot of interactive story games based in popular franchises, and this one is based on the popular The Walking Dead comic book series. The video game series ties into the graphic novel saga, and what makes this interesting is that the choices that a player makes carry over into different episodes. It is odd that Season 2 is being offered instead of Season 1, but that season was free for Xbox Games with Gold subscribers last month.
Also available for the PS4 is Magicka 2, which the game's official website describes as: "The world's most irreverent co-op action adventure returns! In the next chapter of Magicka, players ascend from the ruins of Aldrheim to experience a Midgård almost wiped free of Wizards after the Wizard Wars, with the few that do remain having either gone mad or extremely hostile toward all others." It is quite a fantasy game with an interesting sense of humor.
For those that use the PS3, there is a AAA game available this month with Mass Effect 2. If you haven't heard of this game series, this would be a good time to jump on board his highly-acclaimed franchise. It is an action role-playing video game by Bioware and EA, and it is set in a 22nd century universe full of aliens. What is interesting is that with a saved game from the predecessor, the player can change the storyline in a very intriguing way.
Another option for the PS3 players is Beyond Good and Evil, a game that was released over a decade ago, and probably was a AAA game back in that time. The Steam Store describes it as follows: "For centuries, the planet Hyllis has been bombarded by a relentless alien race. Skeptical of her government's inability to repel the invaders, a rebellious action reporter named Jade sets out to capture the truth."
For PS4, PS Vita, and PS3 Cross-Buy (when available) is Dragon Fin Soup. This particular game is describe on its website as "seamlessly blends genres to create a fresh experience: half story-driven tactical RPG and half high-stakes roguelike, with a pinch of crass humor and a heaping helping of murder & madness set in a procedurally generated fantasy world".
