PlayStation Plus member s are treated every month to a selection of free videogames, the list of which occasionally includes PlayStation VR titles. It has been a while since a virtual reality (VR) title was last included but that’s now been rectified this month, with The Tangentlemen’s dark thriller Here They Lie making into the roster.
Originally released alongside the headset in 2016 Here They Lie is a surreal, psychological horror that put players in a nightmarish world that doesn’t go for jump scares, rather a slower more methodical build up of fear and dread. The Tangentlemen achieve this not only through the visual art style, but also with spatial audio and lighting to increase the suspense.
Players will have to explore a nightmarish city inhabited by strange, malevolent creatures in this first-person horror title, where unsettling encounters and environments come to life.
In 2017 the studio released an update for PlayStation 4 Pro owners, making Here They Lie 4K compatible whilst adding PlayStation VR features including better shadows, post-processing effects, dynamic flashlight shadows, and ambient occlusion.
In addition to Here They Lie this month’s PlayStation Plus lineup also includes:
- Mafia III, PS4
- Dead by Daylight, PS4
- Bound by Flame, PS3
- Serious Sam 3 BFE, PS3
- Draw Slasher, PS Vita
- Space Hulk, PS Vita
- Knowledge is Power, PlayStation Link
All these videogames will be available from 7th August, with Here They Lie downloadable until 2nd October for free.
In addition to the free videogames PS Plus members can also make use of some double discounts this week, with the likes of Along Together, Arizona Sunshine, Blasters of the Universe, Discovery, EVE: Valkyrie, Floor Plan and more receiving further reductions for a limited time.
