Sony announced earlier today, via a post on its PlayStation.blog portal, the free games heading to PlayStation Plus next month.
Sticking to the rather excellent form carved out over the past year or so, Titanfall 2 and Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame are Sony’s choices for December. Not bad. Not bad at all.
The star of the show is unquestionably Titanfall 2. No offense to Monster Energy Supercross, but it just doesn’t quite have the same pedigree as a Titanfall game.
Respawn Entertainment, the studio responsible for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, is behind Titanfall 2. The game is even better than Fallen Order (by a considerable margin we’d wager) and possibly Respawn’s best effort to date, which says a lot.
The premise of throwing around the metallic weight of imposing mechs and blazing down goons is alluring enough to pique our interest. But, Titanfall 2 shines brightest when it comes to its accolade-laden single-player campaign. We’re talking a narrative depth that puts other first-person shooters to shame.
Sony describes it as follows;
Players will take on the mantle of rifleman-turned-Pilot Jack Cooper, who finds themselves trapped behind enemy lines with BT-7274, his new Titan partner. To escape the IMC and save the day, they’ll have to learn to work together and become an effective fighting unit.
Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame (that’s a mouthful, isn’t it?) is your pretty standard, run of the mill racer. Except you get dirt bikes stamped with Monster branding. Serviceable and enjoyable but nothing to write home about.
Titanfall 2 and Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame will be available on PlayStation Plus from Dec. 3 until Jan. 6. As usual, subscribers have until the 3rd to pick up this month’s stellar duo of Nioh and Outlast 2. Make sure you pick up Nioh; it’s a doozy.
