PS Plus September games include inFamous: Second Son and Child of Light

We Are Doomed! Hatoful Boyfriend! More!

Sony's announced the PlayStation Plus games for September.

Headlining is inFamous: Second Son, Sucker Punch's action adventure PlayStation 4 exclusive that came out in March 2014. Our Oli gave it a 7/10 (remember review scores?), saying: "As pretty and playable as it is, in no sense is inFamous: Second Son a post-Grand Theft Auto 5 open-world game. It's just a tidier, shorter and shinier one. It's easy to enjoy and has a winning personality, but it's reluctant to deviate from a stale streetmap of game city. It's no rebel, then. In fact, it's a conformist."

Elsewhere, PS Plus members get Child of Light, the beautiful RPG from Ubisoft Montreal. Stace Harman reviewed this one for Eurogamer, giving it an 8/10. "Child of Light stands as a wonderfully realised venture into unfamiliar territory for Ubisoft - and a welcome reminder that the industry's major players still have the creative flair to push beyond the lucrative safe ground that they so often favour to create well-crafted, highly-polished gems such as this," he wrote.

We've already covered PlayStation VR launch title Rigs and PlayLink title That's You, which are PS Plus bonus games in September.
