Tactical stealth game Invisible, Inc. and fantasy action RPG Stores: The Path of Destinies headline the group of free PlayStation Plus titles for December.
PlayStation has revealed the lineup for the free games that are included for those who are PlayStation Plus members. Among them are Klei Entertainment's Invisible, Inc. and Stories: The Path of Destinies, an off-the-beaten-path action RPG by indie developer Spearhead Games.
Here is the full list of games that members of PlayStation Plus can download for free starting December 6th:
- Invisible, Inc. (PS4)
- Stories: The Path of Destinies (PS4)
- Hyper Void (PS3)
- Tiny Troopers Joint Ops (Crossbuy for PS3, PS4, Vita)
- Color Guardians (Crossbuy for PS4 and PS Vita)
- VVVVVV (PS Vita)
In this trailer and announcement video, PlayStation shows off gameplay and previews Invisible, Inc. and Stories: The Path of Destinies:
It is a stealth game from Klei Entertainment, who also made Mark of the Ninja. Invisible, Inc. blends turn-based strategy with stealth which requires caution and careful planning, with a single wrong move having the ability to ruin an entire campaign. It all takes place in the world of espionage, as the player guides multiple agents through levels breaking into corporations, avoiding guards, and escaping. Game Rant gave Invisible, Inc. a 4 out of 5 review score calling it "frustrating, tense, and tons of fun."
On the other hand, Stories: The Path of Destinies puts gamers in the shoes of an anthropomorphic fox named Reynardo, who is thrust into a global conflict between a rebellion who faces off against an evil empire. There is a choice system weaved into the narrative of the game, which can result in five different narratives as players progress through the game and its beautiful fairy tale world. Game Rant gave Stories a 4 out of 5 in its review saying, it "isn't going to wow players who want flashy combat and wild innovations to the genre, its average level of gameplay keeps it compelling long enough to tell a tale that is well worth telling."
Looking at last gen, the PS3 offering in December is Hyper Void, an arcade style shoot 'em up that will send players shooting and dodging down 29 levels and almost as many bosses. It's only available on PS3, as it does not have Crossbuy with PS4 or PS Vita.
Another arcade style shooter, Tiny Troopers Joint Ops is a top-down twin stick shooter that has players taking control of miniature soldiers to shoot enemies. Originally a PS3 game, it can be played on PS4 and PS Vita via Crossbuy.
Color Guardians is a 3D side-scrolling platformer where players will take control of a character that changes color based on the pickups. The game is all about getting through increasingly tricky levels in as little as time possible.
Lastly, the oddly named VVVVVV is a platformer for PS Vita whose design is entirely based around the question "what if you reversed gravity instead of jumping?" The game, with its simplistic graphics, takes the ability to jump away and replaces it with the ability to flip the gravity of each level.
The November PlayStation Plus games, which include Everybody's Gone to the Rapture will be available to download until December 5, 2016 for those who still need to pick them up.
