This Week’s PlayStation Plus Content

Posted on January 14, 2013 AT 11:17am

It’s Monday, which is followed by Tuesday, which brings us PlayStation Store updates! Tuesdays also bring us new goodies for PlayStation Plus—and this week, it’s another free game.

That free game? Vigil Games’ well-received action-adventure Darksiders. Having never had a chance to play Darksiders, I’m quite happy to see it show up as a free game via PlayStation Plus—now I can see what all of the fuss was about for the low, low cost of nothing.

On the Vita side of things, PS+ subscribers will be offered 50% off Star Drone Extreme. (Regular price is $3.99—thus, you’ll be getting it for $2.) I’m not familiar with Star Drone Extreme, so here’s a quick write-up from the official PlayStation Blog:

Don’t miss out on this great deal for the PS Vita charmer Stardrone Extreme. Each level starts by aiming and shooting yourself out of a cannon into outer space. Your spaceship stays in motion from this point on, and it’s your job to attach to nearby gravity beacons to navigate its flight path. While tethered to a beacon, you’ll swing and attempt to circle the beacon until you release and slingshot yourself further. This core mechanic brings together elements of shoot ‘em up, pinball, collecting objects; all in one unique game.

Finally, Sony also notes that there was a bit of a glitch in their back end, and inFamous 2 was taken down as a free game for PS+ subscribers. That shouldn’t be the case, so it’ll be returning come tomorrow’s full PlayStation Store update.
