Destiny 2 and GoW 3 remastered and it looks like destiny 2 is available right from today.

Pretty crazy that they'd do this, the games userbase must have really fallen into dire numbers. Lets see if this boosts it, I for one won't be picking it up even as a freebie out of principle and protest so they fix their shit in the third one and Activision backs off the odd and scummy monetization schemes as well as never implementing their patents for match making.

I could swear GOW3 was some years ago on ps+



The user base is healthy. https://destinytracker.com will increase by a lot once Forsaken drops.
If you haven't played D2 I highly recommend it. One of the best games this gen.



Destiny 2 is free so that people will buy the big expansion next week.

If you haven't played it yet, I'd use this opportunity to give it a shot. It really has been developed into a pretty solid game over the last year, and it's such a significant title that I feel like it would be worth a few days of anyone's time just to get some exposure to the game to see whether you like it.



Finally the GOTY 2017 went free!




Lmao

I haven't even finished everything on the first game yet lol, but yeah I'll be giving it a download, or at least adding it to my library for the future anyway



It's FREE as long as you pay $60 a year, as long as you want to play the game. But then again, the movies on Netflix are free too, I suppose.

I'm not *usually* the guy to point this out, but there was a bit of an EMPHASIS on FREE so I couldn't RESIST.

To those who have played it - is this still really enjoyable if played entirely solo? I don't have friends.

Also, anyone know when the embargo lifts? For a game that's already out on PC it seems weird to wait till release to see reviews...

Trophies past the available act 1 part started popping on friday so reviews should drop friday I'd reckon along with the game. It is a bit odd, doesn't seem like they are marketing this effectively and hoping the word from the PC release is enough. Hope playstation backs them a bit on access and what not and streamers pick it up again.

I payed 25 euro for it last year while it was on sale and I have it for the next 6 moths for 15 euro. There are many reasons one would buy PS+ that has nothing to do with getting the freebies. Personally I buy and pay for it so I'll always have the option to go online if I want but I stay paying it for the discounts and the freebies.

Last years haul of games on it were 800 euro as they say on the the ps+ page and I dove into a good chunk of them with a few in my library ready for a lazy day. Not bad for 25 euro however it's the discounts that payed the subscription four or five times on games I would have bought anyway, it's always a bitch buying VR games on the other region stores only to see there is a discount and not having the ability to take advantage of it. 

The service not only pays for itself but if you buy a good chunks of games in a given year and you don't invest in it while it's on sale your effectively loosing oit on savings that for me, got past 175 euro from what I counted but probably well over 200 from what i didn't.

I added it to my library but I can't bring myself to download or play it out of disappointment with activision. Sony are most likely still paying them out of the PS+ subscription pool and I can't help monetise there absolutely horrendous microtransaction schemes and hive reason for them to implement future match making algorithms that they have patented.

I played the first, don't regret the near 200 hours but this looks pretty much identical. Hopefully they can do better with D3 and their future games like Sekerio.

I don't want to take this further off-topic, but I have to say that it still isn't free and that how good value PS+ is depends a lot on the person. It has horrible value for me, but it might work out very well for you.
