It’s Free! on PlayStation Store for February 21st

It’s another busy week for free stuff on the PlayStation Network so let’s hop to it for the week of February 21st, 2018. Of personal interest is the new free-to-play title, Armored Warfare. It’s received mixed reactions on Steam where it’s been under development since 2015 but this is honestly the first I’ve heard of it. It looks like it could hit the sweet spot for me between the more serious World of Tanks and my beloved Crossout. I’ll have to give it a shot sometime. Here’s the rest of the rundown:

It’s Free! on PlayStation Store for January 31st

It’s already the end of January, huh? Well that went fast! Commemorate the Super Blood Moon and Tide pod scandal with some random free stuff from the PlayStation Store.

Impress friends and random players you meet in Monster Hunter: World with this pack of classic gestures or keep your locks on lock with these two free hairstyles. There’s also a free SHAREfactory theme for keeping your in-game clips just as fresh as your character.

If you’d rather freshen up your Home Screen there’s also a smattering of free themes this week. SNK released a free static theme for Samurai Shodown V Special for PlayStation 4 and Vita this week, despite the game being out since last September. NIS America is also offering up a surprise-out-of-nowhere static theme on PlayStation 4 for Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA.

Finally, there’s the Avatars. My.com sneaked out one more freebie this week while Archiact Interactive has a bowling pin icon on offer to tie into their recent PSVR release, Pierhead Arcade. Bringing up the rear is the sole freebie from the week of January 24th, a trio of free Navis for Gundam Versus… whatever Navi are.

It’s Free! on PlayStation Store for January 17th

Well this turned out to be a bigger week for free stuff than I expected! You can still try out the bizarre multiplayer mashup Dissidia Final Fantasy NT in “open beta test” form until January 21st but the big surprise this week has to be the Snatch VR Heist Experience. It’s a 360-degree, FMV game in VR, starring the cast of Crackle’s original series including everyone’s favorite dopey wizard Rupert Grint! Someone grab it and tell me how weird it is!

Moving on to add-on content, Warframe has another sizeable booster pack for PlayStation Plus subscribers with all the following bonuses:

  • 100 Platinum: Premium in-game currency
  • 50,000 Credits: In-game currency
  • Akmagnus: Dual-wield these revolvers for twice the ammo and twice the stopping power of a single Magnus revolver
  • Akmagnus Obsidian Skin: Exclusive PlayStation® Skin for the Akmagnus revolvers
  • 3-Day Affinity Booster: Rank up equipment at a faster rate for 3 days
  • 3-Day Credit Booster: Gather Credits faster for 3 days
  • Dragon Mod Pack: A 5-pack of mods with two guaranteed Rare to power up your Warframes

If you’ve already downloaded the game you can grab just the goodies here but if this offer has you ready to jump into the game for the first time grab the goods and the full game in one download with this link. 3on3 FreeStyle basketball is also back with its January PlayStation Plus Bonus pack offering the following:

  • 4999 Coins
  • Silver Card Pack Ticket *3
  • Coin Buff Ball (1D)

My.com, publisher of games including Armored Warfare and Skyforge has a handful of free Avatars this week from their various products if you’re looking for a new logo to represent yourself with. And finally there’s a free static theme for Aspyr Media’s new release Innerspace. It’s quite vibrant looking and reminds me a little bit of ABZU and Journey with its minimal and lonely presentation.

It’s Free! on PlayStation Store for January 10th

Well howdy there freebie hunters, it’s been a slow couple of weeks for the PlayStation Store since Christmas. Honestly, it hasn’t picked back up yet but I thought I’d run through the latest smattering of freebies before they get any older.

What’s better than Sanic? Super Sanic! Ok, it’s just regular ol’ gold-coated Super Sonic which you can unlock for free in Sonic Forces. “Collect the right amount of rings and Super Sonic will spring into action, giving you the ability to sprint across stages at break-neck speeds.”

PQUBE has some free festive costumes for White Day: A Labyrinth Named School as well if you’re still in the holiday mood. The PSVR shooter/job simulator, Shooty Fruity, has a handful of colorful free Avatar icons and Happy Dungeons is back with another monthly offering of Happy Jewels for PlayStation Plus members.
