We’re coming to the end of April (already? really?) so Sony has announced that PS Plus subscribers will be getting Beyond: Two Souls and Rayman Legends as part of their free games collection in May.
It’s a fitting time for Beyond: Two Souls to hit the membership service considering Quantic Dream is about to release Detroit: Become Human, the latest in their line of bizarre narrative adventures.
Beyond featured the acting talents of Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe, who both fumbled through an awkward time-hopping story that saw Page’s character, Jodie, try to come to terms with a supernatural spirit she was tethered to. That led to a lot of experiments at the hands of Dafoe’s researcher, Nathan Dawkins, and also saw Jodie fighting in the military at some point. Or something. It was mad and a little awful, but still oddly compelling in its own way.
Rayman Legends, on the other hand, is an absolutely joyous platformer from Ubisoft. Helmed by famed Beyond Good & Evil director, Michael Ancel, you owe it to yourself to get this played. Fast.
Meanwhile, PS3 owners get vast RPG Risen 3: Titan Lords and comic book adventure Eat Them!, whereas Vita players have offbeat arcade game King Oddball and cute puzzler Furmins.
