PS Plus: Free PS4 Games For February 2018 Are Still Available

The next batch of freebies is now available.

29 Comments

January's lineup of PS Plus games may no longer be available, but Plus members have a new batch of freebies to download for this month. February's selection of free PS Plus games have arrived, giving subscribers a chance to snag another handful of PS4, PS3, and Vita titles at no cost.

PS4 owners have two new games to download this month: the PS4 launch title Knack and the Ico-esque adventure game Rime. Additionally, one of last month's freebies, the PSVR shooter Starblood Arena, is also still available at no cost for PS Plus subscribers until March 6.

PS3 owners likewise have two games to choose from this month: the 2D platformer Spelunker HD and the turn-based RPG Mugen Souls Z. Those with a Vita, meanwhile, will be able to download the side-scrolling adventure game Exile's End and the tactical RPG Grand Kingdom for no cost. The latter is also playable on PS4 thanks to Cross-Buy, giving PS4 owners three potential freebies to download this month.

The full lineup of February's free PS Plus games is listed below. You can claim this month's freebies from the PlayStation Store here. Other current PS Plus bonuses include one for Fortnite and another for Gems of War. Additionally, if you claimed Mercenary Kings through an older Plus promotion, you can now get the newly updated version for free. In other PlayStation news, Sony has detailed the next "major" PS4 firmware update, 5.50, which is available in beta testing now.

Grand Kingdom looks like it has potential -- I love tactical RPGs. Hopefully a lot of the exposition can be skipped if it's the usual JRPG dreck, and we can quickly get into the stats and turns.

@Pyrosa: From what I've heard there isn't much story at all and it's almost entirely gameplay focused.

Getting fed up with the lousy selections for PS3. I know Sony want to push people on to their newer console, but they ought to at least be fair to those of us who are paying the same subscription price as PS4 users but not yet ready or able to upgrade. =/

@trialia: The PS4 has been out for over four years now. PS3 has had many excellent games via the service but it can't go on forever. Sure, there will be some more good games to come but if you want good games for it..... then buy them! You can purchase most of the back library for the price of a McBurger now.

@gotrekfabian: *eyerolling* That whooshing sound? Was my point going way over your head. I have plenty of good games, and a ridiculous backlog. The issue is that PS3 users get less for the PS+ subscription than PS4 users do, but still have to pay the same price. And that is not balanced or fair at this point.

@trialia: life isn't fair and you aren't required to pay for ps3s online by the way

So therefore unlike PS4 it's completely optional for you to pay for it

@trialia: *shoulder shrugging* WHOOSH! Hear that? That's the sound of my point joining your point and whipping around your head. PS3 is 4 years behind the tech and during the first three years of PS4's lifespan it had next to nothing bar retro-graphics indie games. What you're getting is STILL better than what PS4 owners got for those three years with very minor exception. But then you wouldn't even realise that seeing that you don't own a PS4 and aren't likely to in the near future based on your OP.

HEAR THIS : PS3 is dead and PS Plus has to stop giving to it at some point. Get over it, sell up and invest in a PS4 (or ask your parents for one?) or, as I suggested already, buy the games you want and stop subscribing to PS Plus if it hurts you that much.

@gotrekfabian: "Ask [my] parents", seriously? So now we know how old *you* are. And how profoundly ignorant about money, if you think a reduction to half price means everybody can afford a PS4 now.

Equally ignorant about PS+ game availability for PS3, too, it would seem, since it's had proportionally far more indie & cheap games than PS+ for PS4 has had over the years. The ONLY reason PS3 users have had some better games is because the program has been running so long and there are only so many C-grade games out there.

Oh, and for the record (not that I actually care what *you* think, since you seem to stalk me across multiple comment sections just to act like a mardy twelve-year-old), I got PS+ in the first place purely for the automated cloud backup functions. Later to play Minecraft and Tekken MP - not much else. PS4 users get a lot more out of it now than PS3 users do, though the Vita games seem to still be good for the most part. Which is why this is ridiculous and your silly hardware argument is irrelevant.

@trialia: 1: I'm a gamer in my forties.

2: Stalking you across topics? If I have posted on a topic, whether or not it was conversing with you, it is because I have an interest in that topic not because I want to converse with you in particular and certainly not because I want to follow your every maneuvuer and/or upset/troll you.

3: I would say that my understanding of economy is far greater than yours as I am able to save and then use those savings for things I need and desire. Not every adult has to be broke whether working class, born into money or even unemployed.

4: PS Vita owners do NOT get better treatment via PS Plus. In fact, they are the worst treated. I know this as I own a PS Vita, it is useful for when someone wants to watch TV and I want to game, I use remote play.

5: You haven't been a PS Plus subscriber for long if you think I that PS3 only gets the dregs and that the games given to PS3 subscribers is anything like as bad as PS4 owners have received. PS3 used to consistently get quality titles as well as the indie games which is why PS4 owners are so annoyed with the service until the last few months. Even this month it isn't great but, unlike people like yourself, we get on with it and purchase games rather than wait for infinite AAA freebies.

Wake up and smell the coffee.

I was just about to grab Grand Kingdom for the PS4 because it was on sale. Good thing I decided to wait for the Feb games before I pulled the trigger.

@BigFeef: it looks like a vanillaware game and has me intrigued. in fact, i believe a ex director from vanillaware was the man behind grand kingdom, so it explains a lot. seems like a decent game at the very least.

PS4: Grand Kingdom is decent. Knack.... I'm not sure if that is a game or a Virus for PS4.

PS3: Mugen Souls Z is pretty awesome!

Vita: cold leftovers.....

@dragonsama: Grand Kingdom is free on Vita too and Exile's End seems like a decent little experience.

Grand Kingdom for me.....

I grabbed and beat Knack in the early days of PS4, it's not nearly as bad as people make it out to be but clearly not a system seller....

*edit*

so I started on Grand Kingdom and so far it's pretty good....
