PS Plus February 2019 free games are launching soon with the official PS4 PlayStation Plus release just days away and an improved feature confirmed for release.
It’s good news and bad news for some PS Plus subscribers ahead of the release of the February 2019 games list.
The good news is that there will be some top titles to download and play in the coming days on the PS4.
There’s also a newly improved feature for fans to take advantage of and plenty of time to download the current PlayStation Plus titles.
But there’s also some disappointing news for those who are fans of the older consoles of the PS3 and PS Vita.
PS PLUS FEBRUARY COUNTDOWN
We’re in February, but fans still need to wait for the official PlayStation Store refresh before they can download the newest games.
And the list includes some great titles from very well-known studios developing for PS4 and PS4 Pro.
Tuesday, February 5, will see the PS Plus lineup refreshed with Hitman: The Complete First Season and For Honor.
Both games are worth downloading and trying out, especially when you consider that they free with an active subscription.
As mentioned above, they won’t be going live until later this week, meaning there is still time to grab the current PlayStation Plus games.
This includes Steep and Portal Knights on PS4, as well as Zone of the Enders HD Collection and Amplitude on PS3.
PS Vita fans have the choice of Fallen Legion: Flames of Rebellion, which is also a crossplay title with PS4.
The final PS Vita game available to download until the end of the month is Super Mutant Alien Assault.
And that’s where the bad news is also worth mentioning, as these will be the final PS Vita and PS3 games made available through the Plus subscription.
Sony PlayStation decided to remove the older titles so that they could focus on the PS4 platform more.
“This month’s PS3 and PS Vita games will be available for a few extra days, until 8th March 2019, a notice from Sony reads.
“PS4 games will be available until 5th March 2019, when the next monthly games line up hits.
“As a reminder, after 8th March 2019, PS3 and PS Vita games will no longer be offered as part of the PS Plus monthly games line up – so be sure to download them while they’re available.”
The final games for both systems have also been confirmed and include Divekick for PS3 and PS Vita, as well as Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
The final PS Vita games are Gunhouse and Rogue Aces, which is also a PS4 crossplay title.
The other good news is that while we’re losing access to some older games, Sony is improving other PS4 features.
Sony has announced that cloud storage for PS Plus members is being increased in early February.
This is being expanded from 10GB to 100GB for PS Plus members playing on PS4 – giving you even more space to keep all those game saves.
It could prove pretty useful for those with the older PS4 consoles that boast less room on their hard drives.
With cloud storage, you can save your game progress and character profiles on one system, and then continue the game on another system later without losing progress.
This is the first significant change announced by Sony for their new look PS Plus subscription service.
It’s unclear if more features will be expanded in the future, with the PS Plus subscription service a massive part of Sony’s plans and a good area of growth for the company.
