PlayStation Plus members in North America will be able to download free copies of games such as Limbo and Skullgirls Encore next month as part of May's Instant Game Collection, senior community specialist Kristine Steimer announced via the PlayStation Blog.

PlayStation 4 owners can pick up Stick It to The Man, previously released for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and Steam. The game follows hard hat tester Ray, who discovers an arm sticking out of his brain after a strange accident. With his new appendage, Ray can read the minds of others. The game was announced for PlayStation 4 and Wii U earlier this month.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2014, Puppeteer and Skullgirls Encore will be available via PlayStation 3. 2D fighting game Skullgirls Encore is a re-release of the original Skullgirls, while Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 uses Konami's Fox Engine to power its physics, player AI and more. Side-scrolling platformer Puppeteer, released last year, put players in charge of a boy-turned-puppet named Kutaro. After his head is eaten by the Moon Bear King, players can pick up replacements to gain special abilities.

Ground Zeroes premiered last month with the Classic Snake skin and the "Deja Vu" mission on PlayStation platforms, while the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions featured the "Jamais Vu" mission starring Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance's cybernetic Raiden.

Slade To Measure: Outcast HD Footage

The Outcast HD Kickstarter campaign is aiming high. I know plenty of people who remember the open world adventure fondly but $600,000 is a huge amount to ask for. With just less than two weeks to go, there’s less than $250,000 in pledges and it’s hard not to think that the most recent update video [...]

Take an Expedition into Titanfall's War Games map

Following an initial reveal earlier this month, developer Respawn Entertainment has now graced us with a handful of screenshots and solid information on the War Games map included in Titanfall's upcoming "Expedition" DLC pack.

Unlike the game's other maps, War Games isn't real. That is, it's even less real than the video game's other maps as it takes place within the same simulator players strolled through during Titanfall's training mission. As a result, the developers were able to craft imaginative structures with a focus toward acrobatics without having to worry about things like design congruency and sensible architectural layouts. This virtual setting also allowed Respawn's level designers to incorporate level battlefields for the game's titular giant robots, free of debris that might distract from the task of blowing apart opposing robots.

For more, pay a visit to the Titanfall website where designer Jason McCord offers his take on War Games. This map, along with two others, will debut in the Expedition DLC at some point in May, at a price of $10. [Image: EA]

Physics-based cosmic strategy game Habitat funded for Xbox One

Physic-based survival-in-space strategy game Habitat has just been funded on Kickstarter, ensuring the game will come to fruition on Xbox One, PC, Mac and Linux.

Habitat was already announced as one of 25 games signed up with Microsoft as part of its self-publishing program ID@Xbox.

The game is set in a Battlestar Galactica-like universe where earth has been destroyed and the remaining off-world survivors must rebuild civilization by constructing a functional habitat out of junk floating in space. You'll be able to move your jerry-rigged structure about by strapping rockets to it and propelling it through the zero-gravity vacuum.
