The PS Plus games in February
Destruction AllStars (PS5)
Destruction AllStars starts on February 2nd for PlayStation 5 and comes directly as part of the free PS Plus lineup. In the multiplayer title, players can choose from 16 characters. They have their own vehicle as well as individual weapons and skills. In an arena, you can fight the other vehicles in demolition derby style. In contrast to the Derby, the game continues even after your vehicle has been destroyed. Players can continue fighting on foot and jump over opponents’ cars. Since the game is not yet available, we cannot give a conclusion. But the dual mechanics with fighting on foot and on wheels looks quite promising. Destruction AllStars is available for download to PS Plus subscribers until April 5th.
Control: Ultimate Edition (PS5 and PS4)
The PS5 version of Control: Ultimate Edition will also be available on February 2nd. At the same time, the free plus period begins for both PS5 and PS4.
As the new director of the Federal Bureau of Control (FBC), gamers explore the “Oldest House”. The paranormal headquarters of the authority is larger on the inside than on the outside and is infiltrated by the “Hiss”. The supernatural opponents have invaded reality and deformed it. Players * gain new skills by collecting everyday objects that come from paranormal events.
The world is freely accessible and, in addition to the main mission, also contains some side missions. As a reward, there are skill points to improve the telekinetic powers of the protagonist. In addition, you get upgrades for the service weapon, which can change its shape, for example for a shotgun or sniper rifle.
According to Metacritic, the game has a combined score of 82/100 on the PS4 version. TECHNOLOGY BUTTON gives the game a clear recommendation, if only because of the funky design and the captivating story. There’s a lot to explore at the Oldest House – but beware of the ever-changing surroundings! Both DLCs are included in the Ultimate Edition. PS5 owners get an adapted version in which they can choose between performance and graphics mode. The former runs at 60 FPS (frames per second), the latter at 30 FPS and ray tracing. PS-Plus members get the game until March 1st at no additional cost.
Concrete Genie (PS4)
Players take on the role of the protagonist Ash in the dark and half-abandoned city of Denska. After a couple of bullies tear up his coloring book, he resolves to find all the pages. On this mission he finds a living brush that can bring his pictures to life. Little by little, Ash brings life back to Denska.
The game is creative and at times quite exciting. However, their own art style and gameplay are certainly not for everyone. On Metacritic, Concrete Genie has a solid score of 76/100. So it’s well worth a look. The game is available for free download until March 1st.
That was the PS Plus games in January
Shadow of the Tomb Raider (PS4 / PS5)
The action adventure Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the youngest offshoot to date of the well-known action adventure series around Lara Craft. In it, players have to save the world from the looming Maya apocalypse and, as usual, prove their platforming skills, fighting skills, tactics and cleverness in solving various puzzles. Usually the game costs around 60 euros for the PlayStation.
Greedfall (PS4 / PS5)
The action RPG Greedfall caused divided opinions at the start of 2019. On the plus side there is a great fantasy epic with the island of Teer Fradee, which graphically spices up nature and magic as well as the industrial revolution with a coat-and-sword look. The combat system is also ingenious and can be designed variably with the various companions and your own skill tree. The quests are entertaining and can be solved in different ways. On the other hand, there was criticism of the opponent’s design and the consistently identical interior design of the urban spaces. Overall, Greedfall is a successful game that normally costs around 50 euros for the PlayStation.
Maneater (PS4 / PS5)
In the open world action RPG, the player changes perspective – and becomes a great white shark. Starting as a small shark, you have to find your way in a deadly environment and first work your way to the top of the food chain. The action fun actually costs around 40 euros. PS-Plus players will get it for free in January.
