Assassin's Creed III

As mentioned during Sony’s big GamesCom press conference this week, Assassin’s Creed III will be available for free in Europe if you’re a PlayStation Plus member from 28th August. The divisive sequel will put you inside the period appropriate boots of a new assassin, a Native American named Connor – and should get you in the mood for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

Other releases set to join the Instant Game Collection at the end of the month include cross-buy sneak-‘em-up Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark, motorcycle sim Urban Trial Freestyle, and New Little King’s Story, the PlayStation Vita reimagining of Konami’s popular Nintendo Wii strategy game. You’ll also be able to download the PlayStation 3 version of the Jak & Daxter Trilogy, but it’s unclear whether you’ll score the Vita version, too. This is technically cross-buy compatible, so we’ll see.

While the new releases are exciting, it’s worth remembering that a slew of freebies are set to leave PlayStation Plus before the month is over. If you haven’t added Need for Speed: Most Wanted, the ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection, Demon’s Souls, LEGO Lord of the Rings, and When Vikings Attack to your download list, you should probably rectify that now.

It looks like another stellar offering from where we’re sitting – but are you happy with the slew of giveaways? As always, feel free to spill your thoughts in the comments section and poll below.
