November PlayStation Plus titles appear to have been announced early in an accidental leak. Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition and Yakuza Kiwami briefly appeared on the official PlayStation Plus page before being pulled, with the text “November Free PS4 games” being displayed with them.
Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is a remaster of the 2011 FPS by the same name. Developed by People Can Fly and published by Gearbox Software, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition has players in the shoes of disgraced space pirate Grayson Hunt on a mission for revenge. One of Bulletstorm’s main draws and differentiators from its contemporaries at the time was its absurd and vulgar use of crass humor, as well as its tropical paradise setting which utilizes a lot of bright and vibrant colors as opposed to browns and greys.
Another draw was its take on FPS combat. Players are disincentivized from playing it safe, instead, they are prompted to get creative with different methods of killing to earn major points. This gameplay hook is supported by an electric whip gadget that can fling enemies into a variety of different positions, as well as a plethora of unique weapons with varying functionalities.
Yakuza Kiwami is a remake of the original 2005 PlayStation 2 title Yakuza. Yakuza Kiwami follows the life of high ranking Yakuza member Kazuma Kiryu, as he takes the blame for the murder his adopted brother commits in an act of protection. Throughout Yakuza Kiwami, Kiryu attempts to clear his name while uncovering the deeper mysteries of a larger conspiracy.
Along the way, Kiryu takes part in a large number of fist fights against thugs and rival Yakuza family members in an effort to defend himself and the people he cares for, in a classic beat ’em up inspired combat system. Smacking around opponents isn’t the only activity in Yakuza Kiwami, however, as players are also able to explore the streets of Kamurocho, taking part in often humorous side quests and leisurely activities such as visiting arcades or singing along in karaoke bars.
It’s unusual for PlayStation Plus titles to be announced this far in advance, with the announcements usually coming just before a month’s end, but regardless the cat seems to be out of the bag. If the leak is true, then PlayStation Plus subscribers are going to be in for a treat this coming November.
