Transistor, Yakuza 4, and More Highlight Playstation Plus in February 2015

Sony has confirmed the Playstation Plus freebies for the month of February, 2015.

Featured above, you can view a sizzle reel that showcases all of the games across Playstation 3, Playstation 4, and Playstation Vita. The games coming to Playstation Plus in February are as follows:

  • Transistor (PS4) From the creators of Bastion, Transistor is a sci-fi themed action RPG that invites you to wield an extraordinary weapon of unknown origin as you fight through a stunning futuristic city.
  • Apotheon (PS4) The Gods of Olympus have abandoned humanity, leaving you to perish without their benevolence. Take up arms against the Gods, climb Mount Olympus, and take their divine powers for yourself to ensure mankind’s survival!
  • Yakuza 4 (PS3) Yakuza 4 lets you explore the city of Tokyo in an unprecedented level of detail, experience every taboo in the underground world through the eyes of 4 revered men. Can you survive the dangers and temptations of the Japanese underworld?
  • Thief (PS3) You are Garrett, the Master Thief. Step into the silent shoes of Garrett, a dark and solitary thief with an unrivaled set of skills. The most challenging heists, the most inaccessible loot, the best kept secrets: nothing is out of your reach.
  • Rogue Legacy (PS Vita|PS4|PS3) A procedurally generated castle means every run is different. This is a Rogue-lite. Your character dies, but with each passing your lineage grows and becomes stronger. Tons of unique traits make every playthrough special, and with 10 different classes to master, there’s plenty of reason to come back for more (punishment)!
  • Kick & Fennick (PS Vita) Soon after waking up in a desolate but colorful world, Kick meets a small flying robot named Fennick. When Fennick saves Kick from a menacing guard robot, they find out Fennick’s battery is broken. Together, they embark on an adventure to the Core Tower to find Fennick a new energy core.

Are you guys excited to pick up any of these games? (We’ve reviewed both Rogue Legacy and Transistor. Click through if you’re curious as to what we thought of them.)

    Easily the best line-up I’ve witnessed them having. Move your ass February.

    I have been meaning to get into Yakuza, and if they’re going to give away 4 for free…I mean, I’d really prefer to start with the original, but with the HD collection being Japan-only and it being impossible to find a reasonably priced PS2 version I’ll take what I can get. Especially with 5 being localized soon and Sega holding the other localizations hostage.

    I already own/beat yakuza 4 and the rest is garbage, guess PSN+ is just for multiplayer in feb.

    I already own Transistor. (It’s really good! It was half off around Black Friday, so I got it with the $10 credit that came with the PS4.) And I have Rogue Legacy on PC, but I’ve been meaning to start a new game, so there’s that too. Not a bad month, all told. Apotheon I’ve never heard of… Is it new? Thoughts; comments?

    Great games this month! I was about to buy Apotheon since I like the visuals and I’m extremely interested in Greek mythology, but I’ll get it via Plus.

    Oh, good, I bought Transistor a few weeks ago. Ehhhhhh…

    Still very much looking forward to Rogue Legacy and Apotheon though. Hoping Yakuza 4 generates so more interest for the series as well!

    Oh god, I bought Transistor a few weeks ago on Steam!

    Oh well. I was wanting to play it on Playstation, so this works. And now I can play Rogue Legacy on Vita as well. Next month is looking nice.

    Since my dominant PS platform is Vita, Sony continues giving me almost no reason to get PS+. Already have Rogue Legacy on Steam.

    Yakuza 4 is worth it for Akiyama alone. Damn that guy is suave!
    Gotta play the previous games soon. There’s probably a lot of little things I’m missing out on that the synopsis in Yakuza 4 didn’t cover.

    Apotheon is a new game that looks like a 2D God of War with more focus on mythology. I’m very exited for this game and if you already have Plus I recommend you give it a try.
