January 15th PlayStation Plus Update
Free for PS Plus members
Take control of War, one of the fabled Horseman of the Apocalypse, and rain down destruction with a combination of brutal attacks and supernatural abilities.
Darksiders' true appeal however isn't just in its visceral action. With an emphasis on open world traversal and mind-bending dungeons to explore, Darksiders delivers a true adventure, supported by the amazing art styling of comic book art genius Joe Madureira.
50% off for PS Plus members (Original price: $3.99; PS Plus Price: $2.00)
Don't miss out on this great deal for the PS Vita charmer Stardrone Extreme. Each level starts by aiming and shooting yourself out of a cannon into outer space. Your spaceship stays in motion from this point on, and it's your job to attach to nearby gravity beacons to navigate its flight path.
While tethered to a beacon, you'll swing and attempt to circle the beacon until you release and slingshot yourself further. This core mechanic brings together elements of shoot 'em up, pinball, collecting objects; all in one unique game.
One other note; some of you noticed that inFAMOUS 2 left PlayStation Plus as a free game last week. This was an error and it will be back in the Instant Game Collection on the 1/15 PlayStation Store Update.
