Now that February has rolled around, the Playstation Plus February 2017 lineup is out for subscribers to the service. Playstation Plus allows Playstation owners to get multiple games for free across the entire month. This month’s lineup will become available next week, likely starting on February 5, next Sunday for players worldwide.
This month’s free Playstation games include the platformer LittleBigPlanet 3, and the eight-bit action game Not A Hero. In addition to that, the games Ninja Senki DX and TorqueL are available for cross-play between the Playstation Vita and the Playstation 3. For the Playstation 3, players will be getting the multiplayer game Starwhal and the puzzle game Anna.
The Playstation Plus service has gotten a sizable amount of criticism in the past few months due to the perceived lacking quality of the games that it offers (in contrast to the Games with Gold program of the Xbox One and Xbox 360, where many of the games offered for free each month are fairly popular ones).
However, the Playstation Plus February 2017 lineup might get at least some good reviews from people, as LittleBigPlanet 3 is a good multiplayer game with a good number of user-created levels (not to mention two years gave Sony time to fix the game’s many glitches) while Not A Hero is a tongue-in-cheek action flick where you try and help an anthropomorphic bunny rabbit attempt to become mayor…by murdering everything in sight.
Starwhal is also a good choice, as the wacky movements of the narwhals you ride on as you try and pierce the hearts of opponents are always good for a party, and Anna will keep you guessing with its puzzles and story as you try and find out the plot.
So, once again, starting next week the Playstation Plus February 2017 bundle will be available, showing LittleBigPlanet 3, Not A Hero, Ninja Senki DX, TorqueL, Starwhal, and Anna for the Playstation 4, Playstation Vita/Playstation 3, and Playstation 3, respectively.
