Outlast's new PS4 version will be free for PlayStation Plus members at launch

Another Coup For Sony's Subscription

Outlast was single-handedly responsible for raising underwear sales by 500% when it released last year (a figure I somewhat appropriately pulled out of my posterior), terrifying PC gamers and making Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs look tame in comparison. It's first-person horror at its nerve-shredding finest, though sadly we didn't get our hands on it in time to review.

However, it looks like we'll have another chance since Outlast is set to make its PS4 debut next month. Whereupon, in even better news, it will be free for PlayStation Plus members!

According to the official Facebook page, "Outlast will be free in February for all PlayStation Plus users (PS4 only)." We previously knew that it was slated for a February 5th release, but as far as freebies go, this is a bit of a corker.

It doesn't get clearer than that, basically. Though we can't be 100% sure that this will be the case in Europe as well as the US, the simultaneous free rollout of Don't Starve suggests that it probably will.

Another seriously impressive coup for PlayStation Plus, perhaps doubly so if recent rumours are to be believed. GamePointsNow purports that BioShock Infinite and Metro: Last Light will join the instant game collection next month, alongside Dynasty Warriors Next and Modnation Racers on Vita. The subsequent official confirmation regarding Outlast certainly lends their report some serious weight.

Oh ambassador, with this PlayStation Plus you are really spoiling us. Out of interest, what games would you like to see hit the instant game collection?

Yes it was announced that it would be free on PS+ way back at E3 I think.
Along with Secret Ponchos, Resogun, Don't Starve.

Sony the company that just keeps on giving!

What games do I want on PS+? If I want a game that much then I would buy it. For me PS+ works best when it give you something you didn't like the look of so didn't bother to buy and then find you like it once you have it.

I'm happy about this, I would have bought it anyway bit it's sweet getting it for free. I do kind of agree with t4v though, it's good when you get a game that you don't really know much about or aren't sure about and end up liking it. Or games where you think "well it looks decent but I'm not sure I'd pay X amount for it".

In any case, I'm already far happier with PS+ than I was with games for gold and I've only had a PS4 for 2 weeks.
