PlayStation Plus players will get three new games in the month of September — Overcooked! All You Can Eat, Hitman 2, and Predator: Hunting Grounds. Two out of the three games will be available for PlayStation 4 players with the first one being an exclusive for PlayStation 5 players. Thanks to the PS5’s backwards compatibility, the other two games will be available to play on the next-gen console as well. All three games will be available to download starting Tuesday, September 7. Starting next week, players can add these games to their library and download them to their consoles until next month, provided they have an active PS Plus subscription
Sony, through a blog post, announced that all three games will be available to download for free till October 4. As mentioned, the three games available to PS Plus members are Overcooked! All You Can Eat, Hitman 2, and Predator: Hunting Grounds. Here’s a quick look at the three games.
Overcooked! All You Can Eat
Overcooked! All You Can Eat is a remastered version that includes the original Overcooked!, Overcooked! 2, and all its downloadable content (DLC). Players can cook up a storm in campaign, survival, and practice modes with the newly added assist mode. It also comes with multiplayer support. Furthermore, it contains a scalable user interface (UI), dyslexia-friendly text, and colour blindness options. Overcooked! All You Can Eat will only be available for PS5 players exclusively.
IO Interactive’s Hitman 2 is the seventh major instalment in the Hitman franchise. Players will take on the role of the iconic genetically engineered assassin — Agent 47 — to hunt and eliminate the Shadow Client and unravel his militia. The game gets “new ways to play, new game modes, and new features, including the new Sniper Assassin mode with franchise-first co-op play.”
Predator: Hunting Grounds
Based on the hit sci-fi franchise, Predator: Hunting Grounds pits man against the Predator. Players will be a part of a four-person Fireteam that will compete in challenging missions before they are found by the Predator. Alternatively, some players can choose to be the Predator and hunt others using deadly alien weaponry. The Predator’s arsenal includes a shoulder-mounted Plasma Caster, Combistick, and more.
PS Plus subscribers have until Monday, September 6 to add the free games from August — Hunters Arena: Legends, Plants Vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, and Tennis World Tour 2 (Review).
