With this month's PlayStation Plus offerings headlined by the excellent Final Fantasy VII Remake for PlayStation 4, and a rather interesting (and mind-bending) first-person puzzle jam for PlayStation 5 called Maquette.
With the line-up rounded out by the co-op action of Remnant: From the Ashes, plus the PSVR shooter Farpoint. Here's the breakdown of what's in store -- interestingly this version of Final Fantasy VII Remake is weirdly not eligible for the free PlayStation 5 upgrade coming soon.
That aside, be sure to check out the Maquette trailer -- it looks very cool. It also makes use of the PlayStation 5’s Game Help functionality, which for a puzzle game sounds like the perfect implementation. Here's hoping we can resist the urge to go straight to solutions the moment we get stuck.
Final Fantasy VII Remake | PS4
Square Enix’s modern reimagining of its iconic RPG boasts unforgettable characters, a mind-blowing story and epic battles. Return to the city of Midgar as Cloud Strife, former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the resistance group Avalanche. Initially executing daring raids against Shinra to fight back against its planet-threatening machinations, Cloud and his comrades are unaware of the epic consequences that await them. The story of this first, standalone game in the Final Fantasy VII Remake project covers up to the party’s escape from Midgar and goes deeper into the events occurring in Midgar than the classic original.
Remnant: From the Ashes | PS4
In this third-person survival action shooter, play as one of the last remnants of humanity attempting to retake a world overrun by monstrous, interdimensional invaders. Venture into dynamically generated worlds alone or with up to two other survivors*, scavenging for supplies and modding equipment to strengthen the chances of survival when tackling over 100 deadly varieties of enemy and battling epic bosses.
Maquette | PS5
All that is tiny is simultaneously huge in this intriguing first-person puzzler designed around a Escher-esque recursive simulation. Making its PlayStation 5 debut as part of this month’s PlayStation Plus lineup, Maquette sets you in the centre of a world of which the rules are very different from our own. Solutions to puzzles require players to twist the world recursively – manipulating the landscape of a diorama will see those changes mirrored in the life-sized version that surrounds them. If players are perplexed by a puzzle, they can call up PlayStation 5’s Game Help for helpful hints to solve Maquette’s tougher conundrums.
Farpoint | PSVR
Players must master an arsenal of weapons to keep themselves alive on a hostile alien world in this free-roaming, first-person PS VR shooter. Optimised for the PlayStation VR Aim controller and fully playable with a DualShock wireless controller, players can strike out towards their crashed space station solo or with a friend in online co-op.
