The PlayStation Plus free games for September may have leaked ahead of their scheduled announcement tomorrow. Folks online have spotted a Facebook advertisement that shows the free games as inFAMOUS: Second Son and Child of Light. Some, like the folks at WWG, even managed to take a screenshot as proof of their discovery.
Shortly after the news spread, however, people began reporting that the sites the ads originally linked to have gone dead. This could indicate their authenticity, if Sony pulled the ads because they went live too early. If the ads turn out to be the real deal, then PlayStation users can look forward to two solid titles in September.
inFAMOUS: Second Son is the third game in the inFAMOUS action-adventure series. In it, players take control of a new protagonist, named Delsin Rowe, with superpowers and fight through a fictional version of Seattle. inFAMOUS: Second Son is a PlayStation exclusive, and is the first in the series to be on the PlayStation 4.
The game was considered the first “showpiece” for the PlayStation 4 platform and garnered mostly positive reviews from critics. Read Game Rant’s review to find out what we thought of the title.
The other game for September, Child of Light, is a very different animal. This Ubisoft published title is a refreshing take on the turn-based RPG. Child of Light feels like a role-playing game at its heart, but it also adds elements of platforming and puzzle games into the mix.
The gameplay is fun, but one of its highlights is its absolutely stunning art style. Child of Light enjoyed positive reviews when it was released, and we thought it was pretty good.
It has yet to be seen if the ads are accurate, but the choice of games and presentation suggest they are legitimate. If the game choices are real then all should be revealed tomorrow, then Sony is set to officially release the September lineup. Last month, PlayStation Plus users were gifted Just Cause 3 and Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry.
