PlayStation Plus players will get three new games in September — Overcooked! All You Can Eat, Hitman 2 and Predator: Hunting Grounds. Two of the three games will be available for PlayStation 4 players, with the first being an exclusive for PlayStation 5 players. Thanks to PS5 backwards compatibility, the other two games will also be available to play on the next-gen console. All three games will be available to download from Tuesday, September 7. Starting next week, players can add these games to their library and download them to their consoles until next month, provided they have an active PS Plus subscription.
Sony, via a blog post, announced that all three games will be available for free download until October 4. As mentioned, the three games available to PS Plus members are Overcooked! All You Can Eat, Hitman 2 and Predator: Hunting Grounds. Here is a brief overview of the three matches.
Overcooked! all you can eat
Overcooked! All You Can Eat is a remastered version that includes the original Overcooked!, Overcooked! 2, and all of its downloadable content (DLC). Players can cook up a storm in campaign, survival, and training modes with the new assist mode. It also comes with multiplayer support. Also, it contains a scalable User Interface (UI), dyslexia-friendly text, and color blindness options. Overcooked! All You Can Eat will only be available for PS5 players exclusively.
IO Interactive’s Hitman 2 is the seventh major installment in the Hitman franchise. Players will take on the role of the iconic genetically engineered assassin – Agent 47 – to hunt and eliminate the Shadow Client and unravel his militia. The game features “new ways to play, new game modes, and new features, including the new Sniper Assassin mode with the franchise’s first co-op game.”
Predator: hunting grounds
Based on the hit sci-fi franchise, Predator: Hunting Grounds pits man against Predator. Players will be part of a four-person Fireteam who will compete in challenging missions before being tracked down by the Predator. Alternatively, some players can choose to be the predator and hunt the others using deadly alien weapons. The Predator’s arsenal includes a shoulder-mounted Plasma Caster, Combistick and more.
