HAPPY NEW YEAR Everybody!!!
If you are reading this, then you are reading IndianNoob’s last post this year (along with this one). And what better way to sign off than to talk about free games. This month, inFamous: First Light will be the highlight of the free games giveaway by Sony.
inFamous: First Light the prequel to the excellent inFamous: Second Son by Sucker Punch will be the first game that will be available to all PlayStation Plus members for no extra cost. The game features Fetch, one of the NPC in inFamous: Second Son and acts like a standalone expansion much like Far Cry Blood Dragon on the last generation. inFamous: Second Son is one of the most highly rated games on the PS4, and First Light should be more of the same; which as any gamer worth his salt would know: is awesome. For anyone who hadn’t played Second Son before, this would be a great opportunity to find out why inFamous is such a good game.
The other game coming to the current gen console is The Swapper. The Swapper is a puzzle game which will put players in control of figures made from clay. The Swapper joins an ever growing list of games which debut on the PS4 free of cost for their first month. Its an excellent way to increase popularity for such games, and I believe Sony are really brave in making such decisions.
PS3 & PS Vita:
January won’t be as prolific for the other 2 device from Sony. While December saw almost 5 games released across the 2 devices, this month would have the solo game The Swapper available to both PS3 and PS Vita owners. This is the slimmest choice PS3 owners have had from the PlayStation Plus service, but I will give them a break considering most of the their customers will still be playing the Hitman triology from December.
Having said that X-Box line up this month looks so much better with Witcher 2: Assassin Of Kings. AAA titles really add punch to the whole free game thing.
Anyways January has some good games if you own a PS4, not so much if you have a PS3 or a Vita. I hope this changes in the next month. Till then, hope you enjoy some inFamous: First Light. I assure you, you won’t be disappointed.
Remember, the games will be available for download from the first Tuesday of January.
