Reddit Predictions

This month's thread has been popping off with predictions - probably thanks to so many countries implementing strict lockdowns to slow the spread of COVID-19.

That said, PS Plus is here to take you away from the troubles of the real world, letting you delve into the virtual instead.

Dying Light

With Dying Light 2 being pushed back to much later in the year, many gamers have been crying out for Techland's original game.

Filled to the brim with LOTR lore, this game is the perfect fit for any lover of science-fiction and fantasy games.

The climbing and parkour mechanics in this game are comparable to those employed in Assassin’s Creed titles and Dying Light, and the combat is also pretty impressive.

Having grown up on earlier installations in the series, I can vouch that the parkour and combat mechanics on display in this game are stunning.
