Since the first day of the month fell on a Wednesday, Sony only now revealed their next line-up for PlayStation Plus Free Games November 2017 – available for download on Tuesday the 7th.
For the PlayStation 4, there’s Worms Battlegrounds, the 2D turn-based tactical game where teams of worms use a range of artillery to wipe each other out. And Bound, an artistic platformer where a princess uses her dance skills to ward off enemies while moving through a dreamlike world.
On the PlayStation 3, there’s R-Type Dimensions, a compilation of the fast-paced side-scrolling shoot ’em ups R-Type and R-Type II, originally released in the 1980’s. And Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic, a 2D fighting game originally released in April 2009 on the PSN, using puppet-like characters battling in the style of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
And on the PlayStation Vita, there’s Dungeon Punks, a beat ’em up with RPG elements in the style of the classic Golden Axe series, but with tag-team action. Dungeon Punks is a cross-plat with the PS4. And, the first two Episodes of Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse, a point-and-click adventure and part of the Broken Sword series, where George and Nico’s adventure begins with a painting that had been stolen long ago.
Also, as an added bonus, PlayStation Plus members will be able to download the on-rails shooter horror Until Dawn: Rush of Blood for the PlayStation VR. Until Dawn: Rush of Blood will continue to be a free download until January 2, 2018.
Among the freebies this month, Worms Battlegrounds, Bound, and Dungeon Punks have Platinum trophies to unlock, as well as Until Dawn: Rush of Blood.
Of these, Worms Battlegrounds is arguably the easiest Platinum which can be obtained in under 15 hours, though does include 9 online trophies. Also, Dungeon Punks is quite doable in under 30 hours, depending on skills. However, both Bound and Until Dawn: Rush of Blood have a few challenging trophies that might get in the way of the Platinum.
Also, since Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse is a point-and-click, unlocking 100% of the trophies is easy if following a guide. And getting 100% in R-Type Dimensions is not particularly hard, especially if your shooter skills are up to par.
