PlayStation Plus' free game for the last week of April is Velocity Ultra

A free copy of Velocity Ultra joins Mercenary Kings on PS4, Pixeljunk Monsters on Vita, and Arkham City, Stealth Inc, and Castle of Illusion on PS3.

Sony is mixing up its Instant Game Collection for PlayStation Plus subscribers in North America today, introducing cult hit Velocity Ultra for the Vita.

Originally released as a PlayStation Mini in 2012, UK developer FuturLab jazzed up Velocity for re-release on Vita in early 2013. It's well worth a look, and I enjoyed it immensely.

The game joins PlayStation Plus as part of Sony's April lineup, which also brought with it Pixeljunk Monsters Ultimate HD on Vita, Mercenary Kings on PS4, and Batman: Arkham City, Stealth Inc. A Clone in the Dark, and Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse on PS3.

Also on PlayStation Plus this week is a range of deals on titles such as Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, Persona 4 Golden, and Rain. You can see the full list on the PlayStation Blog.

Sony announced its May lineup for PlayStation plus last week, which includes the PS4 debut of Stick it to the Man, which I've also been told is genuinely hilarious.

The publisher also noted that Batman: Arkham City and Mercenary Kings will depart PlayStation Plus next week, on May 6.

Sony tends to stagger additions to its PlayStation Plus lineup in North America, whereas in Europe it more commonly adds new titles (and removes old ones) in one monthly swoop.

The money that I am saving in Vita games is going towards another memory card.

Velocity what? LOL PS+ is so horrible. They offer old obscure games like Arkham City, Borderlands 2, BioShock Infinite, and Tomb Raider with the subscription? Xbox Live is where all the great games are free. And your games are secure so your five year old can't access them. All the best games, all in one, the Xbox One


Come ooooooon, everybody come on!

Good good. I haven't actually bought a game specifically for Vita so far, I just play the free stuff on Plus.

@tomservo51  Yeah me too, I think the title of the article makes it sound like it's coming to PS4, but it doesn't look like that's the case.
