PlayStation Plus free games for February 2021 confirmed

The PlayStation Plus free games lineup for January 2021 includes three titles, one of which is exclusive to PS5.

The PlayStation Plus free games lineup for February 2021 includes the excellent Control and a new PS5 exclusive.

February’s Xbox Games with Gold lineup is the best for some time, so it’s pleasing to see an equally impressive crop of games come to PlayStation Plus.

Toping the list is Remedy Entertainment’s Control. It was a GOTY contender in 2019, a Thumbsticks favourite, and a PS4 generation highlight. The game’s Ultimate Editon – which includes all DLC – is free to download for subscribers on PS4 and PS5.

PlayStation exclusive Concrete Genie is also recommended. Pixelopus’ game is an imaginative street painting-based adventure. The Jet Set Radio influences are clear to see, but the game carves out a distinct identity with impressive motion controls and strong narrative themes.

February’s final game is Destruction AllStars, a new hero-based vehicular combat game. It looks fun but is perhaps trying too hard to be cool. It’s a PS5 exclusive and the latest release to use the console’s Game Help feature.

Control and Concrete Genie are available to download between February 2 and March 1. Destruction AllStars is included with PS Plus through to April 5, 2021.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
