Oh okay I will try Destiny 2, I shall give it the benefit of the doubt, for now.
It's still a very good game, although it took me some time to get used to the new way they've done the weapons slots. The shaders for the armour are annoying as well, as they aren't reusable and you can only use one per item (so only one shader for your boots, another for your gauntlets etc). Suppose it does mean you can have a really garish coloured guardian though.
I need to get back into playing it, I've got well lazy lately but I'm nesting at the moment apparently (allegedly painting the kitchen units etc counts as nesting and is deserving of your friends making fun of you).

PS @Martok why has my spellchecker turned American? It's highlighting perfectly good British spellings.

PS @Martok why has my spellchecker turned American? It's highlighting perfectly good British spellings.
Spell checkers are entirely browser-based, nothing to do with this site. Check the dictionary installed for whatever browser you use. If it's Chrome, then go to settings, search for "language" and it if doesn't show English(United Kingdom) at the top, change the order so it does (and if it's missing altogether, add it via the "Add languages" option). It's a similar process in Firefox too.

I won't be bothering with Destiny 2. Nice that the base game is free but as those who have already got it will be moving onto the expansions and season pass content and I wouldn't be buying those, I'll give it a miss. Battlefield V is my next game to play (Battlefield 1 until it is out).

Laser League and Friday the 13th: The Game are your PlayStation Plus games for October
Master Reboot, The Bridge, Rocketbirds 2 and 2064 Read Only Memories also join the service


With September winding down it’s time to say ‘farewell’ to the scorching summer and a big fat ‘Boo!’ to autumn. We obviously couldn’t let it pass without serving up a little seasonal treat for PlayStation Plus users, so to get you in the mood for a spook-tacular Halloween, we’re kicking-off October with notorious horror icon and sporting goods aficionado Jason Voorhees.

Here are the games joining PlayStation Plus on 2nd October:

Friday the 13th: The Game


Gun Media’s Friday the 13th: The Game is a faithful adaptation of the iconic movie series, pitting up to seven fresh-faced young high-schoolers against one lone, maniac killer.

It’s your chance to step into the shoes of one of Camp Crystal Lake’s ill-fated student counsellors, or strap on the iconic hockey mask yourself and go hunting for helpless teenagers.

Each side has their strengths and weaknesses. If you’re the man with the machete, you’ll have special powers and abilities to help you hunt your would-be victims. If you’re one of those on the run, you’ll have a selection of improvised tools – along with the power of teamwork – to see you through.

Who lives and who dies? Well, that’s up to how you play…

Laser League


Created by the studio behind the ruthlessly addictive OlliOlli skating series, Laser League is a lightning-fast competitive multiplayer game that starts out as a simple test of raw reflexes and fast becomes a deeply-strategic team showdown.

Playing either 2-vs-2 or 3-vs-3, the basic goal is simple: eliminate the opposition. Choose from a series of class abilities that will define you playstyle – offense, defensive or tactical – and then enter an arena and take control of laser points on the field into order to trap and eliminate your opposition.

The more you play the deeper it gets, with game-changing power-ups that can completely up-end the balance of power.

PS Plus bonus title: Knowledge is Power


The perfect game to cabin-up with as the nights begin to draw in, Knowledge is Power pits up to six players against one another in a race to the top of the Pyramid of Knowledge. Inch your way up by answering questions, completing tasks and occasionally trying to trip-up your fellow contestants, all in the name of jolly-good fun.

And you can put those Dualshock controllers down – as a PlayLink title, Knowledge is Power needs nothing but your handy smart phone.

Anything else?
We’ve an additional four titles for PS Vita and PS3, three of which you can also download for your PS4. Put them all together and October’s PS Plus line up looks like this:

These will all be available to download on PlayStation Store from 2nd October. In the meantime, why not check out September’s line-up to make sure you didn’t miss anything:

That’s all for now – join us again next month to find out what big games will be coming to PS Plus in November and let us know how you get on with October’s games over on Twitter and Facebook.

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition & Yakuza Kiwami are your PlayStation Plus games for November
Jackbox Party Pack 2, Arkedo Series, Burly Men At Sea & Roundabout round out the line-up


Happy Halloween, folks! To all those elbow-deep in a pumpkin right now, dribbling fake-blood across their faces or rehearsing the Monster Mash dance routine, we salute you!

If you’re looking to get your spook on with PlayStation this week, then why not check out PlayStation Store’s massive range of Halloween Discounts, get involved with FIFA 19’s FIFA Ultimate Scream or Fortnite’s Fortnitemares event.

Now, to the matter at hand! Let’s take a closer look at the games and why you shouldn’t miss out on this November’s excellent line-up.

Yakuza Kiwami


More than a decade on from its debut, the team behind the cult-hit Yakuza series returned to the roots of their generation-spanning saga with a complete remake of the PlayStation 2 original.

Yakuza Kiwami re-envisions the classic open-world crime saga for PlayStation 4, recreating Kamurocho’s atmospheric nightlife and brooding criminal under-belly with current-gen visuals, brand-new art work and updated combat mechanics.

If you’ve never had the chance to play a Yakuza title, then there’s no better place to start. A unique mixture of fearsome crime drama, slice-of-life social sim and arcade-style action beat ’em up, Yakuza Kiwami is an experience quite unlike any other.

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition


What’s better than beating the stuffing out of the bad guys? Doing it in style! This is pretty much the mantra that underpins this over-the-top, sci-fi shooter and it’s never looked or played better than in the expanded PS4 version.

You are Grayson Hunt, an exiled former bounty hunter on the quest for revenge. Stranded on the crumbling planet of Stygia with nothing but your trusty laser leash, you’ll need to tear you way through its hordes of mutated inhabitants and track down the commander who betrayed you.

The real twist is the additional points you’ll earn for taking down your opponents with the colourful creativity of an ’80s action movie hero. Lasso enemies with your futuristic whip, combo kill in quick succession or just kick them into a giant industrial turbine… whatever works for you, buddy.

Anything else?
Absolutely! Riding shotgun alongside the aforementioned you’ll also find two games each for PS3 and PS Vita (two of which you can also download for your PS4 as well). Put them together and the line-up looks like this:
You can download all these from PlayStation Store starting 6th November. In the meantime, why not check out October’s line-up to make sure there was nothing you missed:
That’s all for now – join us again next month to find out what big games will be coming to PS Plus in December and let us know how you get on with November’s games over on Twitter and Facebook.

SOMA and Onrush are your PlayStation Plus games for December
Steredenn, Steins;Gate, Iconoclasts and Papers Please also join the monthly line-up

Wow, 2018 was something, huh? From Shadow of the Colossus back in January, through to God of War in May, Marvel’s Spider-man in September and Astro Bot Rescue Mission just last month it’s been quite the year on PlayStation.

We’ll be recapping all that and more in the coming month, so stick around for that. In the meantime, another month means another batch of brand-new PS Plus titles. So, without further ado, let’s start unwrapping!

The following titles join the service on 4th December:

SOMA


Those familiar with the work of Frictional Games should already be perched comfortably on the edge of their seats (or somewhere behind their sofa) for this one.

A follow-up to the sensationally scary Amnesia: The Dark Descent, SOMA is one part brooding existential sci-fi, one part nail-biting cat-and-mouse adventure. It manages to not only excel in the hide-and-seek horror genre its creators popularised, but go way beyond it.

You’ll find yourself transported to a dilapidated industrial facility following an experimental new treatment for a head injury. Surrounded by deranged machinery and with only a mysterious voice on the intercom to guide you, it’s up to you to unravel the mystery of how you wound up there – and how to get back home.

Onrush


You’ve tried racing, you’ve tried car combat, but have you ever tried to do both while boosting at breakneck speeds across wildly uneven off-road terrain? No? Well, now is your moment.

From the twisted minds behind the hugely successful MotorStorm series, Onrush delivers a lightning-paced arcade racing experience that puts as much emphasis on trashing your opponents as overtaking them.

All of this is dialled up to 11 with the addition of huge stunt ramps and masses of verticality that vaults your motor hundreds of feet in the sky, only to come crashing down on your opponents like a four-wheeled wrecking ball.

Take all of this online and you’ll be trading paint with up to 11 other unruly racers across four competitive modes and tearing your way up the leader boards in the process.

Anything else?
As usual, we’ll be adding in two games apiece for both PS3 and PS Vita, leaving the final line-up looking like this:

All the above will be available to download on 4th December. Until then, you still have few days left to pick up any of last month’s games you might have missed.

And that’s it – we’ll be back next month with more. In the meantime, let us know how you get on with this month’s titles over on Twitter and Facebook.

Steep and Portal Knights are your PlayStation Plus games for January
Zone of the Enders HD Collection, Amplitude & Fallen Legion also join the monthly line-up

Happy holidays, folks – we hope you’re all having a great break and enjoying some well-earned, seasonally-sanctioned down time.

With 2019 galloping over the horizon, it’s time to look at what the new year has in store – and where better to start than with PS Plus? Let’s dive into January’s line-up, available to download from 3rd January.

Steep
Tear your way across the soft white powder of some of the world’s most breath-taking mountain ranges on skis, snowboards, wing suits or paragliders in Ubisoft’s open-world, winter-sports sandbox.

Figure out the fastest way down sheer slopes and snow-capped peaks, record your runs and then share them with players around the world – including your friends – and challenge them to go one better.

Everything you do can be shared with the Steep community – from trailblazing time trails to your biggest wipe-outs. A newly added photo mode, PVP challenges (with full-contact collisions) and a brand-new Alaskan location mean that there’s more to do than ever.


Portal Knights
Keeping firmly with the theme of unique, open-world sandboxes, we come to our second big title of the month.

Portal Knights mixes time-honoured RPG mechanics with large, procedurally-generated environments and clever co-operative play to deliver a stylish action-driven adventure with big bosses to face-down, loot to collect and, yes, heaps of opportunities to get creative.

Departing with more traditional RPGs, Portal Knights proffers the possibility of reshaping the world as you see fit: build vast structures to call your own, plant some veggies or dig deep into the earth to mine for rare materials.


Anything else?
As with previous months, we’ll be adding two games each for both PS3 and PS Vita, leaving the final line-up looking like this:
All the above will be available to download on Tuesday 3rd January. Until then, you’ve got what remains of 2018 to pick up December’s line-up. Quick reminder on those:
And that’s it – we’ll be back next year to lift the lid on February’s games. In the meantime, let us know how you get on with this January’s titles over on Twitter and Facebook.

I've tried both Steep and Portal Knights from this month's free games.

Steep is a fun game based around snowboarding/skiing/flying with a wingsuit in snowy mountains. I've not played a lot of this but it has a bit of an SSX feel to it. You can see how friends have done on the various courses too and try to beat their high scores. Definitely worth a look if you like this sort of thing.

Portal Knights is rather like Minecraft mixed in with an RPG. The graphics are much better than Minecraft. The main difference is that, unlike Minecraft which only has one world/island (2 if you also count the nether world) Portal Knights has different islands which you visit by constructing portals to travel between them. In my world there are 48 islands with a range of different biomes. On the islands you can meet different people and carry out small quests for them. You can also do all of the usual building and crafting that you would expect from Minecraft and RPGs. Do check this one out if you like either of these genres.

For Honor and Hitman are your PlayStation Plus games in February
Plus, members now have 100GB of cloud storage space for game saves


Before we get to this month’s line up, we have news to share about cloud storage for PS Plus members. In early February, we will be expanding our cloud storage space from 10GB to 100GB for PS Plus members playing on PS4 – giving you even more space to keep all those game saves.

With cloud storage, you can save your game progress and character profiles on one system, and then continue the game on another system later without losing progress. Be sure to check it out next month!

Now, let’s take a look at the monthly games next month, which will be available on 5th February.

For Honor


First up, we have For Honor, the melee action game from Ubisoft. Experience the chaos of war and choose between Viking, Knight, and Samurai factions to find your perfect fighting style. Featuring 20 different PvP maps, this game will be sure to entertain you.

Hitman: The Complete First Season


Next up, we have Hitman: The Complete First Season. Take on the role of Agent 47, the world’s ultimate assassin. Travel the globe to eliminate your targets in traditional and less traditional ways. From sniper rifles to expired spaghetti sauce, use the weapons at your disposal to become the master assassin.

This month’s PlayStation Plus line up also includes:

This month’s PS3 and PS Vita games will be available for a few extra days, until 8th March, 2019. PS4 games will be available until 5th March, 2019, when the next monthly games line up hits.

As a reminder, after 8th March 2019, PS3 and PS Vita games will no longer be offered as part of the PS Plus monthly games line up – so be sure to download them while they’re available.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and The Witness are your PlayStation Plus games for March
Seminal shooter meets incredible indie puzzler in March’s PS Plus line-up


Two brand new titles join the PlayStation Plus line-up on 5th March offering dramatically different gameplay experiences but sharing one key trait: widespread critical acclaim.

Let’s find out more:

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered


Activision’s colossal Call of Duty series is well and truly part of the fabric of modern gaming, but it was only in 2007 that developer Infinity Ward took the console world by storm with its contemporary spin on the popular WW2 shooter series it helped create.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was a phenomenal success, winning players’ hearts with a memorable campaign and sleek online multiplayer. 2016’s Modern Warfare Remastered added a fresh lick of paint for a new generation of gamers, while respectfully retaining its snappy gunplay and brilliant level design.

Download it with PS Plus this month to relive a true FPS classic (in glorious 4K with PS4 Pro).

The Witness


Having had massive success with charming puzzle-platformer Braid back in 2008, creator Jonathan Blow promptly returned to the drawing board and spent the next eight years working on an ambitious follow-up.

The result was 2016’s The Witness – an enigmatic first-person puzzler set on a seemingly-deserted tropical island, dotted from one end to the other with a vast network of interconnected puzzles.

Boasting spellbinding narrative twists, and an unbeatable sense of satisfaction in conquering each puzzle, The Witness is a benchmark in design and environmental storytelling. Download on PS Plus this month for a slow-burning test of the old grey matter.

Both titles will be available to download from PlayStation Store on 5th March.

February’s games
In the meantime, you’ve still got time to download February’s PlayStation Plus titles.

Hitman‘s heady cocktail of sandbox assassinations should keep you busy trying to perfect the flawless hit, while mastering For Honor‘s ‘Art of Battle’ for truly devastating take-downs will take time and patience.

If you’ve not tried them, then now’s your chance – they’ll be available until 4th March.

PS3 and PS Vita games
As a reminder, PS3 and PS Vita games will no longer be part of the monthly games line-up for PS Plus. If you haven’t added the following PS3 and PS Vita titles from the February games line-up to your library yet, they will remain available until 8th March 2019:

Any PS3 and PS Vita games you’ve already downloaded, or will download, prior to 8th March 2019 won’t be affected by this change. Those games will still be part of your PS Plus games library as long as you remain a member. Your game saves and other benefits of PS Plus will also remain the same.

We thank you for your support.
