Original Story Below:
Sony Interactive Entertainment has let the cat slip out the bag about its upcoming line-up of games that will be available for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers for the month of June. More specifically, Sony has let slip the month’s PS4 offering: revealing Life is Strange and Killing Floor 2.
As you may know, Life is Strange and Killing Floor 2 were actually prematurely leaked via the official PlayStation Twitter account for Turkey last week.
At the time, the official tweet read: “#PSPlus In June, the Games announced!”. It was very quickly taken down.
However, now the game’s inclusion in the June line-up has been confirmed by the YouTube account of PlayStation EU, who currently has a trailer not yet published for the said two games flaunting them as part of offering for June.
For those that don’t know: Life Is Strange is a five part episodic game that uniquely brings a twist to the story based choice formula by allowing the player to rewind time and affect the past, present, and future.
In it you play as Max, a photography senior who saves her old friend Chloe by discovering she can rewind time. However, the pair soon find themselves exposed to the darker side of Arcadia Bay as they begun to uncover the disturbing truth behind the sudden disappearance of a fellow student.
Meanwhile, Max beings to have premonitions as she struggles to understand her powers and their implications. Further, she must learn that changing the past can sometimes lead to a devastating future.
Life is Strange is from developer Dontnod Entertainment and publisher Square Enix; it released throughout 2015, where it is widely considered one of the better games of that year.
On the other hand, Killing Floor 2 released last fall. It is a first-person shooter and a sequel to 2009’s Killing Floor. Here’s an overview via its Steam lisiting:
In KILLING FLOOR 2, players descend into continental Europe where the outbreak caused by Horzine Biotech’s failed experiment has quickly spread and gained unstoppable momentum, essentially paralyzing the European Union— Just one month after the events in the original KILLING FLOOR, the specimen clones are everywhere and civilization is in disarray; communications have failed, governments have collapsed, and military forces have been systematically eradicated. The people of Europe know survival and self-preservation too well and lucky survivors have gone into hiding.
Not all have given up hope though… A group of civilians and mercenaries have banded together to combat the outbreak and established privately funded operation bases across Europe. Upon tracking specimen clone outbreaks, players will descend into zed-laden hot zones and exterminate them.
The game notably boasts 6-player co-op and a 12 player versus survival mode.
As of right now, it’s unclear what PS3 and PS Vita games will be offered for the month. We will be sure to update the post as we learn more. Below, you can view the new trailer highlighting the two PS4 games you will be able to get your hands on for free as a PlayStation Plus subscriber next month:
