PlayStation Plus Update (EU) — 01/08/12

Sony announced their line-up for PlayStation Plus for the next two weeks via PlayStation Blog. Highlights include Dead Space 2 and Rock of Ages.

The next  PlayStation Plus Update is due this week and Sony haven’t failed to keep us entertained. Getting the ‘free goodies’ bonus are Dead Space 2 and Rock of Ages. Dead Space 2 is a third-person survival horror game developed by Visceral Games and published by EA. It’s a large AAA title, with the third outing due to arrive next year in the first quarter. Accompanying Dead Space 2 is a full range of its downloadable content, all reduced at half price.

ACE Team’s Rock of Ages — published by Atlus — is a tower defence game with a twist as the gameplay involves the rolling ball mechanic with the rock itself. Recently released just barely over two months ago, this makes a pretty good haul for PS+ subscribers as well. Of course, it might be a tragedy to many early adopters as well considering just how recent the title is.

As standard, a range of free avatars and themes will be included in the PS Plus package this month. Also, to warn readers, free titles Darksiders and Renegade Ops have two weeks remaining before their 100% discount disappears forever. If you’ve yet to grab them, I suggest you do it now.
