PS Plus December Update Brings Free Batman: Arkham City, Limbo, Vanquish
Lots of free games coming to PS3 and PS Vita owners with Plus subscriptions
Sony has just confirmed what new games will be added to the PlayStation Plus' Instant Game Collection for European PS3 and PS Vita users, including Batman: Arkham City, Limbo, or Vanquish for the home console, as well as Mortal Kombat and more for the portable one.The PlayStation Plus service offered its subscribers a huge variety of benefits, but this summer it received its most impressive feature: the Instant Game Collection.
Through this special aspect of the service, Sony is offering Plus members free access to high-quality games that get changed almost every month.
For December, Sony is bringing out the big guns and has just confirmed that PS3 and PS Vita owners in Europe will be able to enjoy a variety of stunning titles.
PlayStation 3 users will be able to download for free Batman: Arkham City, the latest action adventure game from Rocksteady Studios starring the Dark Knight, as well as Limbo, the atmospheric puzzle platformer from Playdead, and Vanquish, the fast-paced third-person shooter from Grasshopper Manufacture.
PlayStation Vita owners will also get new games added to their own Instant Collection, including Mortal Kombat, as well as Big Sky Infinity and Knytt Underground, two games that will also be available as part of the Cross Buy initiative, meaning they'll also arrive on the PS3, not just on the portable device.
