Okami HD Headlines Stellar European PlayStation Plus Offering for April

Posted by Sammy Barker

War in the North, Virtue's Last Reward, and more up for grabs

Sony’s clearly not ready to put the brakes on its epic PlayStation Plus offerings just yet. While last month saw the introduction of Mass Effect 3, Dead or Alive 5 and more in Europe, the platform holder has followed up with an equally outrageous offering including Okami HD in April.

You’ll be able to download the entire PlayStation 2 remake – which scored an impressive 8/10 in our review – without needing to spend a penny, alongside critically acclaimed fantasy title Lord of the Rings: War in the North, and likeable adventure game The Cave. Each of the games will be available to download from 3rd April.

Over on the PlayStation Vita, you’ll be able to grab the well-received visual novel Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward from 10th April, as well as cross-buy indie platformer Thomas Was Alone from 24th April. Again, all of the content will be available for free as long as you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription.

It’s probably worth pointing out that Mass Effect 3, Mortal Kombat, Guardians of Middle-earth, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, and Puddle are all set to leave the Instant Game Collection next month, so if you haven’t downloaded them yet, make sure that you rectify that as soon as possible. Meanwhile, let us know which of the latest additions has caught your attention in the comments section and poll below.

Wow that's a good month for y'all. I'd love to get Okami. And Virtue's Last Reward is fantastic I'm glad more people will play it now.

I've been on the fence about both Okami and Virtue's Last Reward for awhile (i'll get them eventually) but come on now, this is ridiculous. European PS Plus really is incredible.

Well, ironically I am happy to live in NA right now, because I just bought Okami! I would feel frustrated otherwise. At least I get some complimentary PSN money for spending enough money on my March purchases.

But seriously, yeah. Europe's plus offerings are still kinda pwning NA. Oh well. In reality I have way too many games to play them all anyway.

I wonder if there are more subscribers in Europe. You have to imagine that increased subscribers would give Sony more "negotiation" clout on these deals. Perhaps that's the reason for the discrepancy?



bauckster said:

Yeah, maybe....and it's not that NA plus members are necessarily getting a crappy deal. It's just that you guys are getting an AWESOME deal.



hamispink said:

@bauckster that's exactly it. I'm totally happy with PS plus in NA but seeing that its even better elsewhere sucks(though it's great for European gamers who often get the shaft on game releases and pricing.

Okami HD is a beautiful game....anyone who doesn't get it on ps+ is missing out. I've been an Okami fan since it came out on ps2 and the HD version is gorgeous to behold, like a Japanese watercolour flowing live across the screen.



Blaze said:

I may as well just stop buying games altogether with the current PS Plus offerings! D: I already have VLR, but Okami HD will be a nice free download despite the fact that I've already beaten the Wii version.
