With September just around the corner, Playstation has decided to announce the September PS Plus games, and this time around they might actually be worth downloading. The two most prominent games are Batman: Arkham Knight and Darksiders 3, two great games that are sure to keep any downloader busy for a while.
Batman: Arkham Knight is the capstone to the Batman Arkham games, where Batman must fight against a team up between the Scarecrow and a new villain in the form of the Arkham Knight, while at the same time fighting off hallucinations of the Joker.
Darksiders 3 is the third game in the Darksiders series, where War’s sister Fury must go to Earth in the aftermath of Armageddon to hunt down the Seven Deadly Sins. It’s the first Darksiders game to be released since Darksiders 2 and the collapse of THQ, though now Gunmetal Games has taken over development.
While there will likely be other September PS Plus games to download besides Darksiders 3 and Arkham Knight, these two are definitely the centerpieces. They’ll be available from September 3 to September 30, so you have several weeks to decide if you want to download them.
While Batman: Arkham Knight has already gotten all of its DLC out, now’s the perfect time to grab it if you like Batman and open-world games. It also gives you a chance to avoid the game’s utterly disastrous PC port, which still hasn’t been completely fixed.
If you were a fan of the original two Darksiders games, then Darksiders 3 being free also gives you an opportunity to try out Darksiders 3 and see if you like it, since it’s a new studio developing the game and a new publisher behind them. Darksiders 3 also recently got DLC.
So, if you’re looking around for one or two new games to play in the absence of anything else that might grab your interest, you can pick up either of the two new September PS Plus games on September 3, when they’re put up.
