Kingdoms of Amalur and ICO HD coming to EU PlayStation Plus in June

Rayman Origins also being offered to PS Vita subscribers in June.


Sony has announced that the ill-fated Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning will headline June's PlayStation Plus offerings in Europe. Despite a generally positive critical reception, the single-player open-world RPG failed to meet sales expectations upon its original release in February 2012, and led to the closure of the partially state-funded 38 Studios, helmed by MLB pitcher Curt Schilling.

Dark Souls predecessor Demon's Souls and the ICO and Shadow of the Colossus HD Collection will also be made available to subscribers of the premium service.

All three games will be available from May 29, when Sony will phase out its May offerings: Hitman Absolution, Joe Danger 2, and Dead or Alive 5.

PlayStation Vita owners will be able to get Rayman Origins and Coconut Dodge HD from June 5, where Sine Mora will be removed from the service. Velocity Ultra will also leave PlayStation Plus on June 12.

A 12-month subscription to PlayStation Plus has an RRP of £39.99.
