PlayStation Plus September Games are Overcooked, Hitman 2, and Predator: Hunting Grounds
September's PlayStation Plus games have been revealed via the PlayStation Blog. The lineup includes Overcooked! All you Can Eat for PlayStation 5 and Hitman 2 and Predator Hunting Grounds for PlayStation 4. They will be available for download starting September 7.
Overcooked! All You Can Eat was released in late 2020 and is a package deal, including the remastered versions of Overcooked and Overcooked 2. The multiplayer co-op kitchen simulators can be played solo or with up to three other would-be chefs locally or online with crossplay. Developer Team 17 rebuilt each of the games, so these aren't simple reskins of the originals.
According to the game's website, All You Can Eat includes "more than 200 levels," seven of which are new, and three new characters to choose from. The collection supports 4K 60fps, "faster load times," and "brand new trophies ..." A number of accessibility options have also been added to this definitive version, such as "a scalable UI," "dyslexic-friendly text," and "color blindness options."
Hitman 2 needs no introduction and makes the second part of the World of Assassination Trilogy available to a wider audience. It launched in 2018, and it was the first game in the stealth-action series to include multiplayer, though that component was unfortunately removed in 2020, rendering the Deadly Duo DLC trophy unobtainable.
Regardless, Hitman 2 is certainly an essential installment for any stealth fan, where players are able to eliminate marks in each of the game's sandbox levels in almost any way they see fit. It's certainly a worthy complement for this year's triumphant Hitman 3.
Predator: Hunting Grounds might not do the film series it's based on justice, but that doesn't mean that playing as the Predator isn't fun. The asymmetric five-player multiplayer title from IllFonic (and published by Sony) pits a team of four soldiers against a solitary Predator.
It's essentially a game of deadly hide-and-seek in a handful of jungle settings, where soldiers carry out operations while avoiding the deadly alien stalking them and getting to the chopper. There's plenty of weaponry to go around, and the Predator has a few iconic weapons and gadgets up its sleeve.
As for August's lineup of Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, Hunter's Arena: Legends, and Tennis World Tour 2, PS Plus subscribers can download those until September 6 at the weekly reset of 1 p.m. EST.
