The September PlayStation Plus games have been announced and they will be Batman: Arkham Knight and Darksiders 3. These two games will be available for download for those with a paid PlayStation Plus membership on Tuesday, September 3rd. For those who have yet to download August’s games, which consisted of Wipeout Omega Collection and Sniper Elite 4, they will be available until September 2nd.
Originally released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2015 and developed by Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham Knight is a sequel to Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Origins. Featuring the sort of gameplay the Rocksteady developed Batman games are known for, Arkham Knight also adds the Batmobile as a playable vehicle that allows the player to traverse Gotham City while pursuing enemies across city streets and take part in challenges such as timed races and more. The addition of Arkham Knight’s as a PlayStation plus game comes alongside the recent ten year anniversary of the Batman Arkham series that began with the release of Batman: Arkham Asylum on August 25th, 2009.
Darksiders 3, which was released in November last year, features a gameplay style similar to the Dark Souls series, a marked change from prior games in the series, and stars Fury, the sister of the protagonists of the first two Darksiders games. It also features a story that runs alongside the events of Darksiders 2 but before those of the original Darksiders. In this action/adventure game, the player is tasked with defeating tracking down and defeat the Seven Deadly Sins on a post-apocalyptic Earth. A patch for the game that made gameplay more like past games in the series, was released on December 20th, 2018.
