Update: Grow Home! PS Plus subscribers voted, and the results are in. September's PS Plus lineup will include indie title Grow Home for PS4. Check out our original story below which includes trailers for all three games. Congratulations to Ubisoft Reflections on its win.
Original Story: Sony is doing something a little different for its PS Plus September lineup. One of the PS4 games will actually be chosen by subscribers out of three possible candidates, and the game with the most votes has the honour of being added to the September selection. Simple right?
Well yeah, but the thing is, all three look to be supremely worthy contenders and we're anticipating feeling a little sorry for the two that don't get voted into the September lineup. Hopefully all three go on to find the success they deserve, as each look like labours of love from impassioned developers. The videos embedded below are actually really worth watching as each studio has put together a nice package pleading its case for inclusion.
Voting kicks off in the next 24 hours, with the winner announced on August 24 and released on September 1 with the full PS Plus lineup. The remaining two games will also see a September 1 release at a discounted price, so if anything the first day of the next month will bring a nice selection of games for owners of Sony's latest hardware.
Check them out, and we'd love to hear which game you'll be voting for - and why - in the comments below and the various social feeds.
Armello - League of Geeks
We've been following Armello for quite some time here at Grab It. This intriguing tabletop/strategy RPG mashup featured in Grab It Episode 8 with a behind the scenes peak at gameplay, and an in depth interview with League of Geeks director Trent Kusters. With layers of strategy, depth and charm, Armello makes for a worthy contender.
Grow Home - Ubisoft Reflections
Procedural generation comes to action platforming, as players guide their botanically inclined robot BUD back home. If this video is anything to go by, we're guessing there will be some emotional attachment between said robot and players by journey's end.
Zombie Vikings - Zoink!
Swedish developer Zoink! rounds out the A to Z of September PS Plus candidates. This 2D action platformer looks to be a stylish hack'n'slash mash of yesterday's heroes - zombies - with the more current flavour of the month, Vikings.
