With February almost upon us, Sony has revealed the next batch of monthly games it’s making available to subscribers of its PlayStation Plus Essential tier – and it’s also announced a two-hour trial of developer Insomniac’s acclaimed Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 for Premium subscribers.
Starting with the games, February’s first Essential offering is Foamstars, Square Enix’s stylish, Splatoon-esque 4v4 live-service game in which players furiously hose each other into submission with a torrent of slippery soapsuds. It’ll be available on both PlayStation 4 and PS5.
Next up is Rollerdrome, from OlliOlli developer Roll7. Set a world ruled by corporations, where the public is kept placated by a brutal blood sport known as Rollerdrome, it sees players donning rollerskates for some high-speed third-person shooting action, where performing tricks restores ammo and bullet-time-style slo-mo can be deployed against opponents.
