We’re just days away from finding out what this month’s PlayStation Plus extra and premium tier catalogue drop will include. Thanks to February’s State of Play, we actually already know a few titles.
Extra and premium tier subscribers will soon gain access to Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Ghostwire: Tokyo, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction and day one release Tchia. Personally, I’m very excited about Tchia but I’m also curious to see which games are announced in a few days' time. In terms of the essential tier, PlayStation Plus subscribers can currently grab Battlefield 2042, Minecraft Dungeons and Code Vein but fans are less than impressed with the line-up - one game more than most.
Check out the trailer for day one release Tchia below. The game is available for download from 21 March.
As reported by ComicBook, subscribers are finding the entirety of the line-up to be a little lacklustre, but they’re especially unimpressed with Code Vein. Over on Reddit, user Its_Marz wrote, “I’m heavily disappointed with Code Vein. I like the anime aesthetic a lot, but the combat animations were some of the saddest things I’ve ever seen and this is coming from a AAA company.” Yikes. Zeshicage85 warned users to “Temper your expectations. It’s ok, but it gets a little tedious and repetitive.” Code Vein landed a score of 70 on Metacritic so while it does have its faults, it’s still definitely a title worth checking out.
It wasn’t the only game targeted with criticism though. User aaronakaski wrote, “Three more games sent to the library, never to be played. Not a great month for me, but I’m sure some of you will enjoy it.” Dav-Kripler added, “Minecraft Dungeons can best be summarised as Diablo but boring,” while MovieGuyMike referenced Battlefield 2042, writing, “A FPS title this far post-launch is worthless garbage.” All in all, not the best month.
