The games coming to the Instant Game Collection for both North American and European PlayStation Plus members in February have been announced.

In North America for the PlayStation 4, the first person horror game Outlast will be available for free beginning on February 5. For the PlayStation 3, the post-apocalyptic first person shooter Metro: Last Light, the co-op heist shooter PayDay 2, and the action-adventure, memory-twisting Remember Me will all become available for free at some point during the month. Finally, for PlayStation Vita, the fighting game Street Fighter X Tekken, and the cart racer Modnation Racers: Road Trip will both join the IGC during the month.

In Europe, Outlast will also be available starting February 5 for the PlayStation 4. Following in the North American Instant Game Collection’s footsteps, Metro: Last Light and BioShock Infinite is available for free for PlayStation 3 owners. Finally, for PlayStation Vita owners, Modnation Racers: Road Trip and the beat-em-up action game Dynasty Warriors Next  is available for free.

Sci-Fi Adventure Tether Back in Development, Demo Released

Published

 on

Tether

Freesphere Entertainment has announced that Tether is back in active development, almost a year after it was put on hold.

Alongside the announcement, the team has finally released the prototype version of the previous incarnation of the project for free on itch.io. According to the announcement, the decision to release the demo came because “it seemed silly to have years of hard work sat there for people who worked on it to not get any recognition.”

The post also suggests that Freesphere has gone back to the drawing board for the project, saying that it is seeking to reduce the scope of the story and hinting at a “new direction.”

The demo is a long time coming, as creative director Mark Gregory first told OnlySP late last year that it would be made available as part of a larger interview discussing some of the problems and struggles faced by the team members, which included underfunding, a lack of publisher interest, and personal burnout.

For anyone unfamiliar with Tether, the sci-fi adventure promises to tell the story of a mother trapped aboard a space station while on a mission to prevent environmental collapse. While the premise raises echoes of the ‘walking simulator’ format, the game was quite ambitious, featuring time manipulation mechanics, a reactive AI enemy similar to Alien: Isolation‘s xenomorph, and immersive sim elements. How much of that will be retained in the new version remains to be seen.

OnlySP’s Amy Davidson has already pledged to trial the demo as a future entry in the Friday Freebies Club, which this week will examine \SPEK.TAKL\, so watch out for that.
