It is that time of the month already, when Sony reveals the lineup of PlayStation Plus games that will be available to us next (I swear I only did this month's last week). As the sub-title says, brace your friend feeds; it is gonna be hectic for a while. Sound Shapes is one of the games available next month, a title that has become infamous on the site for stealing all the friend feeds due to its large amount of dlc and its cross-buy/cross-save features. Joining it is God of War: Ascension, the prequel story to all of Kratos' adventures thus far, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, Castlestorm: Definitive Edition, Limbo and Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones. Which ones will you be getting stuck into next Tuesday?
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris (PS4)
First up this month on PS4 join the brave Miss Croft as she returns in a new action adventure title. This time around, Lara travels to Egypt and joins forces with rival treasure hunter Carter Bell and imprisoned gods Horus and Isis to defeat the evil god Set.
Featuring a four-player co-op story, you must work together to explore the temple, defeat hordes of enemies from the Egyptian underworld, solve devious puzzles and avoid deadly traps. At the same time, you can compete for treasure, powerful artifacts, and ultimate bragging rights.
God of War Ascension (PS3)
Six months have passed since Kratos stood before the bodies of his wife and child, his hands stained with their blood – duped by Ares into killing the only people he ever loved. Sentenced to an eternity chained within a prison for the living damned, Kratos battles insanity at the hands of the Furies. He will be tested as he seeks freedom, redemption for his sins and vengeance for his family.
Stealth Inc 2 A Game of Clones (PS4, PS3 and PS Vita)
Next up, welcome to the ultimate hostile work environment. In Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones you play the role of a clone escaping a sinister and high-tech testing facility in Curve’s brilliant platforming adventure. Stealth Inc 2 tests both your brain and your reflexes over 60 varied levels linked together by a sprawling overworld.
CastleStorm (PS3 and PS Vita)
It’s knights vs. Vikings in CastleStorm, where medieval warfare meets 2D physics-based destruction! Controlling the battle in real time, you must harness the power of medieval artillery, manage a fearsome ground attack and cast powerful spells! CastleStorm features a story-driven solo campaign, a custom castle editor, online multiplayer, co-op modes and more. Building castles and knocking them down has never been so much fun!
Next up, the classic black and white puzzle-platforming adventure Limbo, where you step into the shoes of a young boy traveling through an eerie, treacherous world in an attempt to discover the fate of his sister. Playdead’s brilliant creation has never looked better than it does on PS4.
Sound Shapes (PS4, PS3 and PS Vita)
Finally this month, we present Sound Shapes. Play through a series of beautiful levels, where sounds and shapes seamlessly mesh together to create an unforgettable platforming experience. You can even create your own levels by building environments and choosing enemies and obstacles – and compose your own music at the same time. Can you shape the perfect blend of sound and gameplay?
These titles will be free for Plus members starting on August 4th, which means you also have less than a week to pick up this month's titles if you haven't already done so. In case you can't remember which ones are available, here they are:
