PS Plus February 2016 PS4 games lineup with two identified

By Alan Ng - Jan 14, 2016

We have a long wait to go until Sony announces the PS Plus February 2016 lineup, but we may have some early insight to give you to keep you ticking over.

We usually talk about the buildup to another IGC addition and it’s no secret that some PS4 owners have been disappointed with the quality of games offered in recent months – especially with Microsoft going from strength to strength after the launch of backwards compatibility.

Now, we have some clues as to two games that could be offered for free. First of all, the PS Plus February 2016 release date will be on Tuesday February 2 – as it’s the first Tuesday of the month, a pattern which Sony now sticks to.

The two games are Not a Hero and Crypt of the Necrodancer, two indies games that will arrive on the exact same day – February 2. Sony likes to give indie games away for PS Plus, so it could be a good bet that at least one of these two will be offered.


Crypt of the Necrodancer has had a very successful release on Windows last year, earning an 8.8/10 from IGN and a 9.5/10 from Destructoid just to give you an idea.

Not a Hero is a 2D side scrolling shooter, which we actually thought was coming to PS Vita before PS4 – February 2 is the only confirmed release for PS4 so far though.

Remember that this is not a confirmation yet, just a heads-up. We know many of you love to give your PS Plus February 2016 predictions before the announcement so let us know what you think about these two games.

Would you be happy with both, or are you hoping to see something different? Once we have official news from Sony we will let you know as soon as possible.

    Well the guys on Twitter said Crypt won’t be free.

      Too bad, because ”Not a Hero” is not a fabulous game.

      • Matthew Lowery

        How do you know? Is it bad?

        • Admir Karalic

          I have it on PC for about a month or so and is a Side Scrolling shooter, with nothing to offer that hasn’t been seen before, slide, hide and shoot that’s about it.

        • Matthew Lowery

          Is it any good? I asked them on Twitter if it will be free next month?

        • Admir Karalic

          It’s something, it really depends of you, go check some videos online, you might also find the game with a Crack on wesbites like skidrowreloaded and try it out, but honestly, the story is pointless and is really just a side scrolling shooter that is pixelated on purpose to make it feel like an old arcade game, but the features as they are, are not something so extraordinary, so for me it’s not worth it, especially not as PS+ game.

        • Matthew Lowery

          Well if it’s free I will try it out. But the fact I might ask the developers if it’s free might alert Sony. I remember back in the October of last year, I asked Fred Dutton if all 6 games are indies, and I was right.

        • Admir Karalic

          Well I hope you will at least enjoy it as I didn’t and I paid full price for the game so. Seemed promising, but then redundancy knocked on my door.
