Sony’s PlayStation Blog announced February 2021’s 3 PS+ games, with no news for January additions on PS Now. This upcoming month’s games are continuing to follow Sony’s now tradition of releasing one PS5 game, and two PS4 games.

The three games for February are:

  • Destruction AllStars
  • Control: Ultimate Edition
  • Concrete Genie
Destruction AllStars | PS5 Exclusive

Destruction AllStars is a “vehicular combat game,” brought to you by Lucid Games and Sony Interactive Entertainment. The interesting part, is that the game isn’t out yet. Yeah! It’ll be day one access, maybe. There’s 16 characters and vehicles available, and this game follows a unique destructive game style. It’s like Rocket League but with more explosions and probably more damage to your car. Currently sitting with an N/A on Metacritic, because it releases February 2nd, Sony says:

“Entertain the crowds by bringing controlled chaos to the vehicular combat arena of this metal-crunching multiplayer game*. Pick one of 16 superstar competitors, then leap into four game modes, using timing, tactics and skills to cause carnage behind the wheel or create havoc with your parkour skills. Perfect your character’s abilities – including a hero vehicle unique to them –  to give you the edge in free-for-all battles or team challenges and become Global Destruction Federation Champion. The game also supports PS5’s Game Help feature**, giving you hints and tips to become the ultimate destructive machine without the need to leave the game.” 

The game will be available for purchase on February 2nd, 2021.

Control: Ultimate Edition | PS4 and PS5

Remedy Entertainment’s 2019 action-adventure child Control, is an unnerving third-person shooter, taking place in the Federal Bureau of Control, the federal agency in-charge of controlling unique phenomena. The Ultimate Edition, which Statural covered here, contains the main game, PS5 upgraded fidelity, and all of the DLC for the game. Currently with an 82 on Metacritic, Sony describes the game with:

“Master supernatural abilities and wield a shape-shifting sidearm in this third-person action-adventure from Remedy Entertainment (Max Payne, Alan Wake). Take on the role of Jesse Faden, Director of the Federal Bureau of Control, whose New York headquarters are breached by an ominous enemy. Despite outward appearances, the skyscraper’s interior is vast and ever-shifting. You’ll need to explore – and weaponize – this unpredictable environment to clean house and repel the invaders.

The Ultimate Edition includes the base game as well as The Foundation and AWE expansions.

And on PS5 console, use the console’s Game Help feature** for hints and walkthroughs to help you solve puzzles and overcome challenges as you explore the Oldest House.”

The game retails for $39.99 on multiple storeplaces.

Concrete Genie

Concrete Genie, developed by Pixelopus, part of SIE Worldwide Studios, is an action adventure game that follows a boy named Ash with the power to bring his doodled creations to life, overcoming bullies and bringing life back to his hometown. The game is a VR game, but originally released as a 3D PS4 game, like most others. The game sits with a 75 on Metacritic, described as:

Pick up a magic paintbrush and return the polluted town of Denska to its former bright and bustling seaside self in this touching and multi-award winning action-adventure. Cleanse streets and alleyways, then use your Living Paint to create mischievous Genies whose magical powers will aid you in overcoming puzzles and seeing off bullies who pursue you. The game also includes two additional modes built especially for PS VR to let you further unleash your creativity***.”

The game retails for $19.99
