A star studded line-up!
August was quite the bummer for PS Plus members as the free games for that month were pretty meh. This September though the PlayStation Plus free games were getting are quite amazing. All regions will be getting the same two titles, which are Darksiders III and Batman: Arkham Knight. These two titles will be available to download from September 4th up until October 1st.
First up, we have Darksiders III, the third entry to the franchise. The game was released back in 2018 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. This time around we take control of Fury yet another member fo the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and the sister of War and Death. The game has ramped up difficulty but lesser encounters than the other entries. We also have returning enemies we’ve faced from Darksiders I & II. It’s once again an action-adventure game with a Metroidvania mechanics and an open world environment.
Next up we have Batman: Arkham Knight, the fourth entry of the Arkham series. The game serves as the successor to the 2013 title, Batman: Arkham Origins. It was released back in 2015 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The story takes place a year after the events of Batman: Arkham City. We’re once again in the shoes of the Dark Knight as he takes on Scarecrow and the titular Arkham Knight. The game is in the third-person perspective with an open-world environment. Like in the previous entries, we’re given a wide arsenal of gadgets and skills to play with. Being an open-world game, we’re also given access to some side quests to unlock additional content and collectibles.
