Sony to offer free indie games on PS4 via PS Plus
Sony will continue to promote indie games on it’s PS Plus service when it launches on PS4 after announcing a deal with several indie developers to offer their games free for a month on their network.
Mashable reports that one of these games will be Outlast, a survival horror game created by Red Barrels studio. Phillippe Morin, co-creator of the game says that Sony were so impressed with the game at PAX East that they decided to find a way of the getting the game on to the console after it was originally announced as a PC exclusive.
The game is set as a traditional survival horror with the player challenged to traverse an asylum with only a camera for light.
The deal continues the tradition that Sony have had with promoting indie games on PS Plus during this generation. Several games, such as Thomas Was Alone, have already been available as free downloads this year for subscribers.
Sony’s support for the indie community was seen as one of the key advantages it held over Microsoft during the E3 conferences and the company has been praised for continuing with this position.
