393 46

Hi everyone! We’ve got another fantastic month lined up for our PlayStation Plus members this October. Don’t forget, if you visit the PS Store and purchase a one year membership before 20th September we will give you an additional 90 days at no extra cost* – that’s 15 months for the price of 12 (€49.99/£39.99)!

New PlayStation 3 games:

This October PlayStation Plus will be bringing another huge title to our members – Ubisoft’s FPS masterpiece Far Cry 3.

In this open world adventure you take on the role of Jason Brody, a young man stranded on the lawless tropical paradise of Rook Island, a place ruled by piracy and misery. After escaping the clutches of the mentally unstable, slave trading, pirate leader Vaas, Jason must transform himself from coward to killer in an attempt to save his family and friends.

Next up, from the very talented team at Black Forest Games we have eccentric platformer Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, the successor to the 1987 Commodore 64 title The Great Giana Sisters.

You’ll play as plucky Giana, who enters the dark, dangerous Dream World to rescue her sister who’s been abducted by a giant dragon. Harness the power of Giana’s dreams to jump between her “Cute” and “Punk” personas, in an effort to be reunited with her sibling.

Your final PS3 offering for this month is Capcom’s action RPG Dragons Dogma: Dark Arisen! For those that missed Dragon’s Dogma the first time around, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen provides the opportunity to start your journey from the very beginning before tackling the all-new content.

New quests await the Arisen on the cursed island known as the Bitterblack Isle. You will face fearsome new enemies and discover valuable treasures in this adventure of epic proportions!
