February’s lineup of games coming to the PlayStation Plus subscription service have been revealed, and this month, there’s a theme: Creativity! The three games announced are all about taking game mechanics and using them in a unique, creative way. Fast-paced vehicular combat title Destruction All-Stars is available for the PlayStation 5, paint-based magical adventure Concrete Genie for the PlayStation 4, and the content-filled and action-packed Control: Ultimate Edition for both consoles.
Destruction All-Stars is a new release officially debuting on February 2nd, 2021. Players control one of sixteen All-Stars, each with their own Hero Vehicles. Using their All-Star’s skills and abilities, players are charged with destroying their opponents’ vehicles and becoming the champion of the most epic demolition derby ever. Destruction All-Stars was also the topic of a recent State of Play video – check out some gameplay footage here:
Originally released in August 2019, Remedy Entertainment and 505 Games’ Control puts players in the role of Jesse Faden, a government agent tasked with investigating various reality-violating phenomena. The game pairs an expansive skyscraper environment with unique gameplay mechanics based on using the power found in everyday objects to solve problems and defeat a sinister otherworldly enemy. The Ultimate Edition includes both of the game’s expansions, The Foundation and AWE, the latter of which features a crossover with fellow Remedy title Alan Wake.
Finally, Concrete Genie is an action-adventure title in which players are responsible for restoring beauty and art to the abandoned, polluted town of Denska. Ash, a shy artist, must recover his stolen notebook from bullies with the help of Genies created from Living Paint. This art-centric game is chock full of unique puzzles for Ash and the Genies to solve together.
