The PlayStation Plus free games for September have been revealed and will be available for download starting today, September 3 to September 30. The two PS4 games are Darksiders III and Batman: Arkham Knight.

Already, the prices for the two PS Plus free games for August, Wipeout Omega Collection (PS4) and Sniper Elite 4 (PS4) have been reverted to normal.

Darksiders III
This is a hack and slash action-adventure game developed and published by Gunfire Games and THQ Nordic respectively. Darksiders III was released in 2018 and is the third release in the Darksiders series which first debuted in 2010.

In this third-person perspective game, players assume the role of the main character, Fury, aka Sister of War and Death. She is among the four fabled horsemen of the Apocalypse and wields whips, flails, swords, daggers, and magic. Fury can manifest herself into different forms, enhancing her combat abilities with new attack strategies, lethal weapons, and traversal abilities.

Unlike in the previous installment of the franchise, Darksiders III brings on board deadlier enemies, but they come in lesser numbers. Some are new foes, while others make comebacks from the previous installments. Taking place in an open-world setting, Fury embarks on a journey that requires her to solve puzzles and overcome obstacles in her bid to finish off the enemy.

Batman: Arkham Knight
Released in 2015, this is also an action-adventure game developed and published by Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment respectively. Just like the earlier installments in the Batman: Arkham series, the game is built around, Batman, the DC Comics superhero.

In Batman: Arkham Knight, players take the role of Batman who uses his melee combat, stealth, detective skills, and other gadgets in an attempt to bring down the Dark Knight who’s wreaking havoc in Gotham City. Glide through the city and bring down all the supervillains including Scarecrow, Riddler, and Penguin.

In Batman: Arkham Knight, much of the gameplay elements like line launcher, grapnel gun, batarangs, Detective Vision, the countering system, and the Remote Hacking Device have been retained. One of the new additions in the latest release in the Batman: Arkham series is the Batmobile, a bulletproof drivable vehicle.

The combined value of the two games is $72 on PlayStation Store, and now that you are getting them for free, it’s such a great deal. But remember, you need to be an active PS Plus member to access these free games. A 12-month subscription will set you back $60, while a 3-month subscription goes for $25. You can also opt for a $10 1-month subscription or the 14-day free trial!
