Rumour: PS4's Free PlayStation Plus Game May Be PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate in June
Posted by Sammy Barker
Water you going to complain about this time?
Nothing remains secret in this industry for long, so it’s not exactly surprising to see a selection of Europe’s latest PlayStation Plus titles leak online. While we haven’t been able to track down the promotion for ourselves, NeoGAF has uncovered a banner advertisement showing some of the titles supposedly set to join the Instant Game Collection in June. As we’ve been unable to verify the image at the time of typing, there’s still a chance that it may not be legit, but it seems authentic from where we’re sitting.
Assuming that it’s accurate, it looks like PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate will be your free PlayStation 4 release for the month. This is UK-based developer Double Eleven’s re-imagining of Q-Games’ classic side-scrolling shooters, and while it may not appease those of you with an anti-indie agenda, we must stress that the original versions of these games were very good. The re-release will include the inaugural title, as well as its excellent successor.
Other games on the advertisement include basketball simulation NBA 2K14 and survival horror Lone Survivor: Director’s Cut for the PlayStation 3, as well as racy brawler Dragon’s Crown for the PlayStation Vita. It’s worth mentioning that this may not be the full extent of next month’s offering, as evergreen titles such as LittleBigPlanet Karting and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception are also set to rotate. As such, you may have a second PS4 game to look forward to.
All will be revealed over the coming days, but while we wait, feel free to let us know your thoughts on this selection in the comments section below.
