PS Plus February 2018: Sony’s seemingly given up with Knack and Rime leading the charge

PlayStation Plus’ February 2018 free games list has finally been announced and from 6 February you’ll be able to pick up both Knack and Rime on PS4.

While arguably not the strongest of new PS4 releases, it’s worth highlighting that Rime is a wonderfully ambitious indie game in the vein of Ico or The Last Guardian, so if you’re hankerin’ to play Shadow of the Colossus it could help sate your hunger. Knack, on the other hand, could be a bit of light fun if you can look past its various issues.

On PS3 you can snap up Spelunker HD and Mugen Souls Z, with Exiles End and Grand Kingdom coming to PS Vita. Those with access to PlayStation VR will also get StarBlood Arena for free and Grand Kingdom is also playable on PS4.

All games become available from 6 February, meaning you’ve still got a week to nab January’s comparatively excellent lineup.

Those of you who haven’t signed up to PlayStation Plus before can bag a copy of Far Cry 4 for free for doing so, which actually makes this month’s set of titles suddenly rather acceptable.

PlayStation Plus: Everything you need to know

What is PlayStation Plus?

PlayStation Plus, or PS Plus and PS+ as it’s also known, is Sony’s premium subscription service. Having initially started as a way to get a slew of free titles each month, alongside premium discounts on the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Plus has evolved into an Xbox Live Gold-style service. You can’t play your PS4 online without a PlayStation Plus subscription.

To ease the blow, every month Sony gives you access to a slew of new games for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. Obviously, the deal works out best if you own all three consoles, but Sony is making strides to provide cross-play and buy functionality.

How much is PlayStation Plus?

Sony sells PlayStation Plus in either three or 12-month subscription packages. You can buy a subscription directly from Sony’s PlayStation Store, using either a recurring PayPal or card payment or a one-off purchase. A 12-month subscription now costs £50 (after having previously sat at £40 for years), and a three-month subscription is £20. Amazon also offers up a neat six-month package, consisting of two three-month cards, for under £40.

PlayStation Plus subscriptions also stack, so if you buy a few at once during a sale, you’ll be able to extend your subscription for less.

How often does PlayStation Plus update?

PlayStation Plus updates on the first Wednesday of every month. Each title lasts a full month, but some games do carry over to the second month if they’re seen as special or on a promotion.

Discounts in sales carry on until the sale period is over and there’s usually a slew of free or cheap avatars and themes available to PlayStation Plus members all the time.
