Subscribers to PlayStation Plus will have new Instant Game Collections available to them this month when Sony adds a number of PS3 and PS Vita titles.
Games that will be added right away are Borderlands 2, Dyad, and Grid 2. For the Vita, Urban Trial Freestyle, and Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed will come next. These titles are all for free download throughout the month.
"You can hop into Borderlands 2 for free later this month on PS3, and this game absolutely shines with co-op, so be sure to bring some buddies along with you while you blast away all the skags on Pandora. You can build out your vault hunter how you like – focus on damage or get some support skills to aid yourself & your friends," the PlayStation blog post said. "Finally, Vita owners can scrape their knees up a bit with Urban Trial Freestyle. Successfully complete the tricks, customize your bike and then challenge your friends with the asynchronous Ghost mode."
The Instant Game Collection will make a new game available every Monday, according to the blog.
PlayStation Plus is a requirement to play many of the PS4's titles online and Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Walmart, and Toys R Us offered it for $29.99 yesterday for Black Friday. It is regularly $49.99 annually.
