April’s PlayStation Plus UK games could be ‘Hotline Miami’, ‘Sly Cooper’ and ‘PES 2014’

PS Plus

According to UK-based online gaming store GamePointsNow, these are April’s PS Plus games for the EU region:

PS4: Mercenary Kings
PS3: PES 2014, Sly Cooper Thieves in Time
Vita: Hotline Miami, Moto GP13

The PS4 gets Mercenary Kings, a deceptively cool title created by the same team who developed the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World fighter a few years ago. It’s fantastic fun.

the last-gen PS3 gains PES 2014 and Sly Cooper Thieves in Time, the fourth Sly Cooper game and possibly the best in the series. We’re no fans of PES 2014 sadly, but someone out there must be. Interestingly for those who purchased Sly Cooper when it was first released, the PS Vita version was offered free as a digital download.

Finally, Sony’s powerful handheld the PS Vita gains the beyond excellent Hotline Miami and Moto GP13. Hotline Miami is the best game to hit our handhelds since Tetris and is a groovy mix of top-down murdering and strategic action. It’s the most depraved game you’ll play today.

These games can be played free, and forever, providing that you pay the £5.49 every month (R69 in South Africa) which Sony demands from you. Each game is downloaded to your PS3, PS4 or Vita, but access is blocked off unless you maintain a PS Plus subscription. Tricky bastards.
