PS Plus January line-up looking to kick off 2014 with a bang

16 Dec 13

Sony has today announced the January line-up for PS Plus members including Don’t Starve on PS4, DmC: Devil May Cry and Borderlands 2 on PS3 as well as Soul Sacrifice and BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extended on PS Vita. New PS3 and PS Vita content updates will be available from 24th December and the PS4 update will arrive on 8th January.

PlayStation Plus also provides access to PS4 online multiplayer allowing players to challenge friends and like-minded gamers from all over the world.

PS4 features a significantly enhanced online feature set that delivers innovative new online gaming for all.

Enter an unexplored world full of strange creatures, dangers and surprises in the PS4 title Don’t Starve.

You play as Wilson, an intrepid gentleman scientist who has been trapped by a demon and transported to a mysterious wilderness world. Use your environment and its inhabitants to aid your escape and find your way back home. Don’t starve will be available on PS Plus from 8th January.

Prepare to face your demons in DmC: Devil May Cry for PS3, which details Dante’s early years set against a contemporary backdrop. The title retains the stylish action, fluid combat and self-assured protagonist that have defined the iconic series but injects a more brutal and visceral edge.

In the PS3 action adventure Borderlands 2 expose the corrupt Hyperion Corporation and its evil boss, Handsome Jack, in a thrilling single player campaign. Choose from multiple character classes, including the formidable Gunzerker, whose deadly skills let him dual wield any two weapons at the same time. Discover innovative new ways to attack enemies with an almost limitless array of outrageous weapons and equipment. Both PS3 titles will arrive on PS Plus 24th December.

The content continues on PS Vita as fans are invited to embark on an epic adventure to learn dark, powerful magic. Fight to free yourself from a nightmare prison and escape the clutches of an evil sorcerer in Soul Sacrifice available from 24th December.

As you awaken, trapped and alone, your fate seems sealed: to be the next living sacrifice to the sorcerer Magusar’s dark arts. But just as all seems lost, a mysterious talking book appears and reveals the secrets of magic, drawing you into its pages and setting you on the path to relive the story of an all-powerful mage.

BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extended is the latest addition to the BlazBlue series and will be available for PS Vita from the 24th December.

In addition to the wealth of content provided in previous games, the newest title introduces four brand new stories, an all-new hardcore play mode UNLIMITED MARS and Relius Clover as a new playable character. A recap of the Calamity Trigger story will also be included allowing players to explore the whole story up until now!

PS Plus provides members with access to top-rated games every month throughout the course of the membership and, in addition, if you’re already a PS Plus member your membership automatically covers PS4 as well as PS3 and PS Vita.

So all you’ll need to do is simply plug in and get gaming! A membership will be required to play PlayStation 4 online multiplayer across titles.
