Originally released last year, Friday the 13th: The Game is a asymmetrical multiplayer game where players could take on the role of Jason Voorhees or one of the camp counselors attempting to survive his murderous onslaught. In our review of Friday the 13th: The Game, we called it “Okay” saying,”Despite that lopsided gameplay and some pretty heinous glitches, there is some dumb fun to be had here – which is all the movies ever really offered, anyway.”
Developer Gun Media had continuously updated and improved the game since its initial launch, selling 1.8 million copies digitally before making a physical version of the game. Unfortunately, due to a legal dispute involving the original film’s scriptwriter, Gun Media announced the game would receive no future content. Interestingly, yesterday brought the news that Gun Media’s development partner Illfonic would be replaced by Black Tower Studios, though it appears this is just to keep up routine maintenance of the game.
Laser League is a futuristic multiplayer sports game released earlier this year that involves players attempting to outlast their opponents using lasers, strategy, and quick reflexes.
Sony also announced The Bridge, Rocketbirds 2: Evolution and 2064 Read Only Memories for the PlayStation Vita (available for the PS4 via cross buy) with The Bridge also available for the PlayStation 3. Lastly, PlayStation Plus subscribers can download Master Reboot for the PlayStation 3, though there are no cross buy options for this title.
PlayLink and PlayStation VR bonus games are also still available for PlayStation Plus members, including the PSVR game Here They Lie until October 2, and the PlayLink game Knowledge is Power, available through November 6.
This month’s batch of free PlayStation Plus games follow’s September’s considerable offerings that included the base game of Destiny 2 and God of War 3: Remastered. Sony also announced that their game streaming service PlayStation Now will allow subscribers to download full PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 2 games to play offline.
