PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold are both services that offer a lot of benefits, one of which is free games to download every month. To avoid the wait, you can even download them right to your console using the PlayStation Store online or the Xbox Marketplace — or even use your console’s companion app to grab them right from your phone!
Here are the games you can look forward to next month.
Sony let their users pick which of three games they wanted to see this month, and the winner was Broforce, a run ‘n’ gun shooter similar to Contra. Galak-Z is the other PS4 game, a physics-based procedurally generated game just like the upcoming No Man’s Sky.
PS3 users get The Last Guy, a top-down game where you must rescue civilians from monsters, and Super Stardust HD, a classic space shooter updated for modern times.
Finally, those with a PS Vita can check out Flame Over, a roguelike firefighting game, as well as Reality Fighters, where you can scan your own face to create a fighter.
The Xbox One’s first game is Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments, a graphic novel game where you solve crimes as the legendary detective. The other title, Lords of the Fallen, is a challenging action-RPG coming March 16.
If you’re rocking an Xbox 360, you can check out Supreme Commander 2, a tactical strategy game, and the original Borderlands (on March 16) — perfect if you want to see how the series started!
Don’t forget that you can play these Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One through backwards compatibility, so you can play all four games on one system!
