September is inching closer, and you all know what that means: Sony has just announced the free PlayStation Plus games for the upcoming month! As a rare treat, we are being given two AAA blockbusters this time. Destiny 2 and God of War III Remastered headline next month’s offerings, but there’s the kicker: Destiny 2 is already available for free in preparation of the first-person shooter/RPG hybrid’s latest expansion, Forsaken, prepares to launch in a few short weeks.
For those who haven’t yet pulled the trigger on Destiny 2, this is the perfect time to check it out. As mentioned, it is available NOW for PlayStation Plus members – a full week early. This is due to the fact that Bungie is hosting a 24-hour free trial of the upcoming game mode Gambit that will be arriving with the new expansion, Forsaken. That trial takes place starting September 1 at 10 A.M. Pacific and will not require a pre-order or purchase of Forsaken, as that expansion doesn’t launch until September 4. Be leery, though, because it is just vanilla Destiny 2 that is free; all other expansions are not included and must be purchased separately.
Next up, is God of War III Remastered. Hot off the heels of this year’s God of War, God of War III is the final tale in the original GoW trilogy. Sony’s blog describes the classic hack-and-slash adventure game as follows: “Play as Kratos as he rises from the darkest depths of Hades to scale the very heights of Mount Olympus to seek vengeance. Armed with double-chained blades and an array of other weapons and magic, Kratos must take on mythology’s deadliest creatures while solving intricate puzzles throughout his merciless quest to destroy Olympus.”
Also included in September’s PS Plus lineup are:
- Another World (PS3, Cross Buy with PS4 and PS Vita)
- QUBE Director’s Cut (PS3, Cross Buy with PS4)
- Sparkle 2 (PS Vita, Cross Buy with PS3 and PS4)
- Foul Play (PS Vita, Cross Buy with PS4)
That’s all for September’s PlayStation Plus offerings! This one looks to be very interesting; I know I’m excited to start Destiny 2 again on PS4, as I played originally on Xbox One. God of War III is a title I missed, and after loving God of War 2018, I’m anxious to visit the previous titles. How about you guys? Are you excited or disappointed with this month’s free games?
