PlayStation Plus Free Games For February 2024 Revealed
February's lineup of PS Plus Essential freebies includes the brand-new multiplayer shooter Foamstars.
PlayStation has unveiled the next batch of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers. Most notably, February's lineup includes Foamstars, a new 4v4 multiplayer shooter that launches on February 6. Foamstars will be joined by another multiplayer shooter, Rollerdrome, and the 2022 action-RPG Steelrising. All PS Plus subscribers will be able to claim the trio of freebies starting February 6.
Foamstars is a brand-new game published by Square Enix, and while it has a Splatoon vibe to it, there are some big differences between it and Nintendo's colorful multiplayer shooter.
There's a big emphasis on manipulating your soapy arsenal to control the battlefield, as you can advantages by soaking the battlefield in foam. Each character has a unique Superstar skill to master, and the game will launch with three multiplayer game modes--Smash the Star, Happy Bath Survival, and Rubber Duck Party--and three maps per mode. Not just a PvP game, there will also be PvE modes to try out. Square Enix already has the first year of content lined up for Foamstars, and you can expect new cosmetics, playable characters, maps, and modes to be added after launch.
Hot off the success of skateboarding side-scroller OlliOlli World, developer Roll7 swapped its deck for some fancy footwear in Rollerdrome. Imagine if Max Payne had roller skates and you'd have a pretty good idea of what to expect from this game. "Roll7 creates an excellent combination of gameplay systems that are fast and fun to engage with, using some of the best elements of skating games to put a different spin on third-person shooters," Phil Hornshaw wrote on Rollerdrome.
Finally Steelrising is a fun Souls-like adventure with a clockwork Parisian design. All the hallmarks of the genre are here, from stamina bars to brutal boss fights with telegraphed moves for a comfortably familiar experience. If you're wary of games like this, the good news is that Steelrising has several difficulty options, allowing you to fine-tune the game to your tastes. You can have just enough challenge to keep things interesting or feel like an unstoppable automaton in action by playing with these options.
Following the PS Plus announcement, Sony hosted a livestream event showcasing Foamstars and many other games on the way. You can read more about that in our State of Play announcements recap.
