They say the best things in life are free. I don’t know who they are, probably a billionaire sitting on a pile of money that they actually stole from you because you were horribly underpaid for your work.
Nonetheless, free stuff is always nice, and that’s why it’s important to highlight it whenever it pops up.
PlayStation loves gift vouchers, and that’s a big part of the appeal of PlayStation Plus.
Well, in addition to the games that have already been announced for December (more on this later), it turns out that there is not one, not two, not four, but three games available for free, especially for this week-end.
What’s special about this weekend, you ask? These free games. Honestly, I thought I was clear.
Want to know more ? We’ve highlighted a bit more information about each game, just below.
Crew 2 is Ubisoft’s open-world racing game where you can also take control of airplanes, speedboats, and a variety of vehicles.
“The Free Weekend is also an opportunity to check out the content added in the recent Blazing Shots update,” says Ubisoft. Blazing Shots is The Crew 2’s fourth major free update, after Gator Rush, which introduced hovercraft; Demolition Derby, which added its eponymous event and destructible cars; and Hot Shots, which first introduced the LIVE Summits.
And if you want to continue riding the roads of The Crew 2 after the free weekend ends, you can also get the Deluxe Edition of the game up to 70% off on PlayStation Store by December 12 as well. .
Then is Zero Hour Firewall, PlayStation VR’s exclusive multiplayer shooter, which when you sum it up is essentially a virtual reality version of Rainbow Six Siege.
“This limited free trial will be available on the PS Store from December 3 (8 am PT) to December 9 (8 am PT),” says game developer First Contact Entertainment.
“Now is a great time to invite friends over to team up and dive straight into battle – testing out the latest maps, weapons and gear. Complete missions, earn rewards, and level up with Double XP!”
So you’ll want to keep downloading them if you want to spend some quality time with them before it ends.
In addition to The Crew 2 and Firewall Zero Hour, you can also download Royal Kitchen, which is apparently a battle royale game.
You’re probably already familiar with The Crew 2’s open-world races and the excellent VR shoot of Firewall: Zero Hour, but Cuisine Royale might just be a bit of a mystery to you. It’s understandable, this just came out of a closed beta test, and it’s hard to keep up with every game that comes out these days.
Cuisine Royale is not the game you would expect. You might be hoping for a cooking show like the Great British Bake Off, where everyone is dropped off in a big kitchen to prove they’re the greatest chef of all time by making a really nice victoria sponge. Alas, it is not that healthy.
Instead, a lot of mostly naked people are fighting each other on an island that features zombies, mildly offensive stereotypes, superpowers of all kinds.
The trailer shows the ability to run on all fours, make enemies glow, and even become invisible. So yes, it’s a little different.
It has an interesting response to the mix of third and first person play. Each player has something that acts as their in-game camera, which means that if you use third-person perspective to peek around a corner, you’ll potentially give away your location. It is an innovative response to an age-old problem.
It all sounds very silly, so if you’re in the mood to try out a new battle royale game, this one might be for you. That’s it for free games, at least for this weekend.
Keep an eye out for emails from Sony as they can include free themes and even discount codes. It’s not clear exactly why some people received emails and others didn’t, but I hope you too will be chosen.
PlayStation Plus December – Remember!
Like every month, you have two free games that you can download right now and that’s a pair of cracks you sure don’t want to overlook.
As usual, don’t hang around, they’re not available for too long.
Fall of the Titans 2
From a personal standpoint, Titanfall 2 is one of the best shooters of the decade, and I think everyone should be playing it. The campaign only lasts around 10 hours, and the multiplayer is from the same team behind the currently popular Apex Legends – so you know it’s going to be good.
Here is the summary of the game on the site:
Solo, Titanfall 2 offers a designed experience that explores the unique bond between man and machine. Playable offline, Titanfall 2’s single-player campaign lets fans take on The Frontier as a militia rifleman with the ambition to become an elite pilot.
Stranded behind enemy lines and faced with crushing obstacles, players must team up with a veteran Titan to complete a mission they were never meant to accomplish. In multiplayer, Respawn continues to evolve its gameplay to deliver a more robust experience that offers increased depth and variety that includes six new Titans, more in-depth piloting abilities, more customization options, and a robust progression system that is sure to satisfy fans. “
Monster Energy Supercross
While it’s not as remarkable a title as Titanfall 2, there is still a lot to be said about Monster Energy Supercross. It is a serviceable racing car that will certainly provide motorsport fans with a few hours of entertainment.
Here is the summary of the game on the site:
“Race with the official 250SX and 450SX riders on official tracks, Daytona included, to experience one of the most spectacular and entertaining racing competitions of all time!
“Customize your rider and bike however you want, with endless possibilities, with over 80 official brands and 300 items available, and take the challenge to conquer the top of the leaderboard.
“Race alone or against players from around the world in different offline and online game modes! Feel the adrenaline rush, step into the arena and become the King of Supercross!
