Well, that was early.
Typically, Sony reveals the coming month’s free PlayStation Plus games a few days before the end of the month. Almost without fail Sony reveals the new batch of games on the last Wednesday of the month and then makes them available to play the following Wednesday, or first Wednesday of the new month.
Not so with November of the year of our Lord 2018. Sony has jumped the proverbial gun—at least for the free PS4 games.
For November, PS+ subscribers will have access to two PS4 titles as part of their monthly subscription. Here’s what they are, courtesy of an ad spotted on PlayStation.com.
Bullet Storm: Full Clip Edition is a remake of the classic bullet hell shooter and it’s a total blast. It’s just pure, run-and-gun mayhem and lots of fun. It’s the perfect PS Plus offering. With a 75/100 rating on Metacritic and it’s not the highest-rated or best-reviewed game to ever land on PS+, but it’s a solid shooter and I highly recommend it. Besides, it gets a “Very Positive” user rating on Steam.
Also, you simply will not get tired of kicking bogies off cliffs. This is the most OP kick since Dark Messiah of Might and Magic. Glorious.
Yakuza Kiwami is another remake, this time of the 2005 PS2 classic Yakuza game. I’ve only played some of the game, but it got great reviews (80/100 on Metacritic) and is one of those games—and franchises, really—that’s on my ever-growing “to play” list. Good lord, but that list is long and monthly free games on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One do not help.
For those who don’t know, the Yakuza series is a Japanese third-person crime game series with combo-based combat, mini-games and a heavy emphasis on story, so if that sounds fun to you, it’s free in November.
We’ll see what PS3 games are added to this list later in the month. If you’re curious about October’s free PlayStation Plus games, read about those here. You can see the free Xbox Games With Gold for October here.
