PlayStation 4 Owners To Get Superpowered Action With PS Plus in December, ‘DriveClub’ Still Absent

Subscribers to Sony’s premium PlayStation service now have less than one week left to download November’s free PS Plus games. The official PlayStation Blog issued a reminder that the rotating lineup of free PS Plus titles will change next Tuesday, December 2. At that time users will be presented with an entirely new batch of games, led by Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition for the PlayStation 4.

Players will be able duke it out on the PlayStation 4 with their favorite comic book characters. Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition combines the classic gameplay of the video game fighting genre with the rich universe of DC Comics. The Ultimate Edition of the title adds even more content to the PlayStation 4 including new playable fighters, maps, and skins.

PlayStation 4 players will also receive a new competitive online title set within the Wild West. Secret Ponchos allows users to choose between several outlaw classes as they battle against competing teams of four.

The December PS Plus lineup will also give gamers plenty of reasons to take another look back at the PlayStation 3 as well. As Game Informer pointed out, next month’s offering of free games includes a higher-than-usual number of PS3 titles for the holidays. This includes Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut alongside Hitman HD Trilogy which, as the name implies, features three remastered versions of the Hitman franchise.

Lastly, PS Plus members will also be able to download Titan Attacks! starting next week. Inspired by classic arcade gaming, Titan Attacks! will be available on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita as a cross-buy title.

Those who have been anxiously awaiting the PlayStation 4 edition of DriveClub to finally become available as part of PS Plus will notice that the title is still absent from December’s lineup. The anticipated title was first announced to be a PlayStation 4 launch title but has but has since been continually delayed. One year after the initial delay, the Inquisitr reported on an apology from Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida that was issued this past October to PlayStation 4 owners over the slow progress on DriveClub PS Plus Edition.

When the PS Plus free game lineups for December and January were announced earlier this month, it became clear that DriveClub‘s PlayStation 4 version still won’t be heading to PS Plus in the coming months. Sony’s stance on the increasingly delayed status of the game is that they are sorry to disappoint fans but want to give the game the proper development time to be completed properly.
