North America and Europe PlayStation Plus Free Games for May 2018 Revealed

10:06 AM

hexmojo-ps-plus-may.jpg (640×360)

It’s that time of the month again. If you’re building up your library of fun-filled, joyous free games from the goodness that is the PlayStation Plus, you’re going to love what’s coming next month. Or at least, one of them. The North American and European PlayStation Plus games have been revealed, and headlining the group is Beyond: Two Souls.

As for the full listing, here’s what you’re going to get:
Beyond: Two Souls – PS4
Rayman Legends – PS4
Eat Them! – PS3
Risen 3: Titan Lords
Furmins – PSVITA
King Oddball - PSVITA

Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean that us folks in the R3 Master Race will get the same thing, but most probably we’ll also get Beyond: Two Souls judging by the streak we’ve been seeing. Beyond: Two Souls is already worth a sub if your PS Plus has already expired or you’re still on the fence.

So, R3 Guys, what do you think we’ll get for next month?

Noctis and the Boys Enter the World of Minecraft

12:22 PM

Final Fantasy XV tie-ins are nothing new. In fact, Square Enix is hard at work in teaming up with several brands that it’s hardly a surprise to see Noctis and the gang appear in a lot of places. And we do mean a lot. On the other hand, the latest of which is what we’d probably call fresh with Minecraft receiving a Final Fantasy XV skin pack that’s available on every platform it’s available on, except mobile devices.

hexmojo-minecraft-ffxv-2.jpg (640×360)

The add-on is currently listed on the Australian PlayStationStore for $4.55. We’re not yet sure if the same pricing will reflect on other platforms, and we’ll keep you guys posted (if you’d like). What we’re sure about is that this won’t be the last tie up Square Enix will come up for Final Fantasy XV. We just don’t know what’s next.
