PlayStation Plus Free Games February 2019

Enter February, the most romantic month in the year as it hosts Valentine’s Day. And what better way to celebrate this amorous occasion than by playing some violent games. And so, here is the next line-up of PlayStation Plus Free Games February 2019 that are available for download on February 5.

On the PlayStation 4, there’s For Honor, a hack n’slash where knights, vikings, and samurai battle in a medieval setting. And Season 1 of Hitman, the 2016 stealth game told in an episodic format.

For the PlayStation 3, there’s the 2008 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, the stealth action title by Hideo Kojima, and has been revamped with trophy support. And Divekick, a 2D comical fighting game which parodies other games in the same genre. Divekick is a cross-plat with the PS Vita.

And on the PlayStation Vita, there’s Gunhouse, a cross between a tower-defense and puzzle game where players must defend orphans against an alien invasion. Gunhouse is also a cross-plat with the PS4. And Rogue Aces, an air combat game where players face off against the Baron in order to liberate some islands.

Among the PlayStation Plus Free Games February 2019 titles, For Honor, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and Rogue Aces have Platinum trophies to unlock.

Among these, the Platinum for Rogue Aces is not too difficult once you get the hang of the controls, and requires only around 18 hours. For Honor is is of average difficulty, but requires at least 60 hours for the Platinum, while Metal Gear Solid 4 can be quite challenging and needs at least 80 hours.

Also, unlocking 100% of the trophies on Hitman is not particularly difficult and only needs about 20 hours. Divekick is an easy game to get all the trophies as long as you have the patience to grind for over 100 hours online.

Ubisoft Bans 1,500 Cheaters on For Honor

cheaters on For HonorLess than two weeks ago, we mentioned that Ubisoft planned to take action against online cheaters on their hack-and-slash action title For Honor. Specifically, these were players who were using elastic bands on their controllers to keep their character moving during an online match without having to actually play, a method of farming which unfairly results in players receiving end-game rewards without any participation.

Since their initial announcement of the anti-cheating policy, Ubisoft stated they have already handed out three-day bans to 1,500 players. In addition, another 4,000 players have been detected and will be receiving warnings.

Players who continue to cheat will receive a permanent ban.

On Reddit, Ubisoft reminded players of their community values:

* Honor: Fight, win and lose with Honor. Support your teammates.

* Respect: Respect your opponents and other community members, inside and outside the game.

* Share: Share your experience, share tips and hints, spread the word! Looking forward meeting you all on the battlefields!

Ubisoft to Start Punishing Cheaters in For Honor

While Ubisoft has already been aggressively pressing to stop cheaters on their new title For Honor on the PC, they recently stated that their anti-cheating policy will be turning towards the console versions as well.

The particular method of cheating to which Ubisoft is referring to is players using elastic bands over the controller’s sticks in order to keep their character moving during an online match without having to actually play. This method of farming results in players receiving end-game rewards without any participation.

Ubisoft explained the steps of their anti-cheating policy in a recent blog:

1st offense will trigger a warning, then, repeated violations may result in a Ubisoft account suspension applicable on the game (temporary or permanent).

Actual disciplinary action depends on the severity of the behavior and shall be decided at Ubisoft’s discretion, on a case by case basis.

The anti-cheating policy will begin this week, with warnings sent out to all first-time offenders. Ubosift also stated in their post that players playing fairly can be “rest assured that sanctions will only be applied if there is clear evidence [of cheating].”

For Honor is a hack-and-slash action title released world wide on February 14, 2017, taking place in a medieval fantasy setting that includes such historical roles as knights, vikings, and samurai in a third-person perspective. The game has 55 trophies, including the platinum and at least 15 online trophies.
