Revisit Gearbox’s hit FPS series, or indulge in some vintage platforming action
June’s monthly games for PlayStation Plus, available to download from Tuesday 4th June, offer a heady mix of high-speed retro platforming and over-the-top shoot ‘n’ loot FPS action.
Let’s take a closer look at the two games on offer.
The blue blur returned in style in 2017 with this lovingly crafted throwback to the Sega icon’s 2D side-scrolling roots, tailor-made to put an ear-to-ear grin on the faces of the Sonic faithful.
You know the drill: Sonic, Tails and Knuckles face off against their old nemesis, Dr Eggman, across a mix of brand new zones and re-imagined classics. Expect lightning-fast left-to-right platforming thrills, countless collectibles, hidden areas, and both competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes for two players.
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection
Getting excited for the freshly announced Borderlands 3? Now’s the time to revisit Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and get up-to-speed with Gearbox’s fan-favourite loot-focussed FPS series.
Not only does The Handsome Collection include all DLC for both titles, enhanced local multiplayer and remastered visuals, but if you played either title on PS3 your game save will carry over so you can pick up where you left off (see here for more detail on this feature).
While you’re waiting for those to drop, you’ve still got a few days left to download May’s line-up: award-winning narrative adventure What Remains of Edith Finch and madcap couch co-op hit Overcooked!. Both titles will be available until 3rd June.
Let us know how you get on with June’s games over on Twitter and Facebook!
