It’s that time again … time for the release of free games (that you paid for with your subscriptions)! The players who subscribe to either PlayStation’s PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold will gain access to the following free games with the online subscription service.
PlayStation was originally going to release Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 and Horizon Chase Turbo. Not many PlayStation subscribers were happy about the selection due to the fact that PlayStation stopped providing free games for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. With dropping those two platforms, PlayStation has stated that they would provide higher quality games for PlayStation 4. Luckily in a quick turn of events, Detroit: Become Human will be switched out with PES 2019 as the free game. With the Deluxe Edition, players will also have a chance to play Heavy Rain if they so choose to.
Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe Edition
Quantic Dream has been known for developing story-driven experiences, and Detroit: Become Human is a thrilling adventure. Find out what it means to be human in an emotional journey made of choices and consequences. In the year 2038 and set in Detroit City, the area has been revitalized with the introduction of Androids into everyday life. Step into the role of Androids as they start behaving like they are alive … creating events that spin out of control.
Horizon Chase Turbo
A love letter to the iconic, just-one-more-go racers of the arcade’s golden age … prepare for a blast of pure 90’s nostalgia with Horizon Chase Turbo.
