Far Cry 3 and Dragon's Dogma coming to EU PlayStation Plus in October

Sony outlines October's PlayStation Plus content for European subscribers.

Ubisoft's open-world first-person shooter Far Cry 3 and Capcom's adventure Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen are headlining the games on offer for European PlayStation Plus members in October.

The two PlayStation 3 games will be joined by indie platformer Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, with all three games being available to download from PlayStation Plus starting September 25.

PlayStation Vita owners will also be able to get Touch My Katamari and Street Fighter X Tekken.

Assassin's Creed III, Saints Row: The Third, Payday: The Heist, Urban Trials, and New Little King's Story will all leave the service from September 25.

Microsoft announced earlier this week that its latest free game as part of its Games with Gold promotion would be Rainbow Six Vegas.

An 12-month subscription to PlayStation Plus costs $49.99/€49.99/£39.99.

I've had PS+ since July and today I downloaded Ico, which sadly is the first game that I've actually been excited to play since I've had the service... at least I have GTA V and Kingdom Hearts, as well as a backlog of games I've had since last year to keep me busy...

I just rented Dragon's Dogma a couple of weeks ago for the second time and I couldn't get back into it. The graphics were also horrendous. It runs at some 1990s resolution.

PS+ is an OK service. For me though, there's just too many games that may have appealed to me but I'd just play on PC. Far Cry 3 is one of them.

just finished ac3 from septembers titles, barely played jak and daxter trilogy for sheer lack of time, tomorrow i get gta v in the mail, and in 10 days dragons dogma (already have the awesome far cry 3). i used to buy games when their price drop, now that's a waste of time, i will only buy the massive games like tlou or gta at launch and really really niche games like jrpgs for cheap. everything in between i will wait for it to drop on the magical basket that is psn+. can't wait to start getting ps4 titles for free though, i can almost touch that knack for free on may.

the hero in farcry3 just seems like he is about to cry every time he opens his mouth.... and I don't mean when his u know who dies, I mean every frigging quest 


its like "awwww whhhehehehbbhahabahh are u alright....." then u kill hundreds of pirates with knives and explosives and do a rambo on an armada of boats with a 400mm caliber canon ?!!!

the VA and the character just don't match

I have actually been thinking about canceling my PS4 pre-order and buying a Wii-U now.My reasoning behind this move is the simple fact that there will not be much of a used game library for a couple of years after it launches which means I will be paying full price for games for a long time.Waiting would also give a chance to play regular wii titles that I missed since I had the PS3 and no Wii:P. It is tempting me as I see some games coming on Wii U that make me want one:P

Playstation Plus is the reason I bought a Vita

Can't wait to finally play Far Cry3 and Dragons Dogma, I've been holding off buying them because I had a sneaky feeling they would come to Plus.

Can't wait!! PS+ is amazing

Anyone still think the Xbox 360 is as good as (let alone better than) the PS3? LOL.

You know what would be better than free games with a subscription?  Free DLC for games you've already purchased.  They could use  a credit system, giving you say up to $20 worth of DLC per month of paid subscription.  That might actually make me want to pay for online account and play multiplayer games.

I often wonder if plus is just a way to heavily discount games, since Sony and Microsoft can't sell digital games cheaper than the boxed version (as steam does), without the publishers burying them. Anyway, it's a bold move since they have my money. I would otherwise have bought these games used and they wouldn't have gotten a cent.

Okay, so Touch My Katamari gave me associations I didn't want to think of :P. Stupid, immature, imaginitive mind!

@dskhury yeah you can. I don't know how online will work if it's like an EA or valve account. Not sure if it changed to the US servers with the us psn account. Download a UK multiplayer demo and test it out. If you download and install a UK game you can sign into your us account and play it though just not sure about multiplayer.

@R-tofen You simply create an UK account. I have an US account and an UK account and I don't live in those countries.

@sunyatanada76 You can always make an eu account. As for store credit you can buy prepaid cards online and receive the code by email.

@Shango4 Right now there's actually more interest for Wii-U then X1 according to GDEX so I don't think your alone considering waiting on next gen and grabbing a Wii-U for now.

I'm grabbing a PS4 and Wii-U but I'm sure most of my first games played on my PS4 will be from the Instant Game Collection.

@mtait01 Playstation Plus is the reason I traded my 360 for a guy's vita. He just wanted to play GTAV on it.

@mtait01 me too, I was very eager to play the Vita games that I got with PS Plus, so with the price drop i bought one. Very impressive piece of hardware.

I'm already playing Urban Trials Freestyle, Jak & Daxter Trilogy and others on my PS Vita : )

@Queuingreturns Sure, because I got FarCry 3 months ago on the huge XBL sale they had in the summer, and it's a game I own, not a rental service like PSN....the online is also excellent contrary to what I keep hearing about the very average online play on PSN(also no cross game chatting yet in2013!....LOL)....

@mkeezay22 doubt theres more interest in Wii-U than XB1, honestly its ridiculous and not worth a debate at all. Maybe you can believe that if total troll, then ya okay believe in stupid crap.

But im waiting a few months after PS4/XB1 release. See whats up with what. I sold my PS3 few years back. Big mistake. So much good crap on PSN+

Haha I bought both of those games already! So frustrating when that happens!! I bought AC3 2 weeks before it appeared on Plus too :(

@Alucard_Prime @Queuingreturns No offense big man, but i'm upped with playstation plus for three years and have had so many epic sales that i've made that money back, not to mention the "rentals" that i'll have played to death so hard that if and when my service is terminated (probably not till the death of the ps4), i'll be quite fine with it.

Jesus, i'm not hating on your console choice but take that attitude and throw it out your window.

@Alucard_Prime @Queuingreturns so by your logic Xbox 360 doesn't have online multiplayer you just rent it haha fuckin stooge and id rather "rent" it for free then buy it for money and I can keep the game for ever as ong as I stay subscribed to ps+ so technically PS+ users rent over 50 games a year for less money then it cost 360 users to rent online multiplayer bahahaha which is the exact same on the ps3 as it is on the 360 I play both its the exact same only free on ps3 and you get tons of free games if you want PS+      ps3>360

PS3 has the best exclusives.

You still stuck with your "one exclusive a year". Awwwwww. Don't cry little child. Microsoft have already lost next gen too.

Go to Mommy and tell her "truth hurts". LOL.

@mtait01 

I got SF X Tekken a week ago too.

Oh well.

Worth noting, games like COD will NEVER be on PS PLUS.

Activision would lose out if that happened.
