PS Plus February 2018 Leak 1

Whenever you see a “leaked” PlayStation Plus lineup that looks too good to be true, we recommend approaching with caution. Take this image that’s been showing up in our Twitter timeline a lot these past few days: it seems to suggest that Far Cry 4 and Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin will be the headline PlayStation 4 titles given away as part of Sony’s subscription service in February 2018.

Closer inspection reveals a giant stinking hoax, however. For starters, enlarging the image uncovers video artefacts on everything apart from the key art for the two main titles. It’s almost like someone’s taken a screen grab of a previous PS Plus update and superimposed Far Cry and Dark Souls on top. Don’t believe it, folks – February 2018’s PS Plus update will be officially announced next week.
