In a blog post, Sony Senior Product Marketing Manager James Hallahan said that RiME “is set in a beautiful world where you play as a young boy who has awakened on a mysterious island after a torrential storm.”

 

“Armed with your wits and a will to overcome, you must explore this mysterious island, reach the tower’s peak, and unlock its closely guarded secrets,” Hallahan added.

 

On Knack, Hallahan said that players would be able to encounter a shape-shifting humanoid. Players can control this humanoid while they protect the world from the possible invasion of Goblin Army.

 

Hallahan described the game as “a fun-filled adventure that lets players wield fantastic powers and discover a uniquely vibrant world.”

 

Meanwhile, for this month of February, there is another line-up included for the PlayStation Plus members. The line-up includes Spelunker HD, Mugen Souls Z for PlayStation 2, Exiles End as well as the popular role-playing game Grand Kingdom on PS Vista.

 

Also, here’s another early treat for PlayStation Plus members. They would be able to get the PlayStation VR game title Starblood Arena. Players can get the game Starblood Arena on March 6 as a bonus freebie.

 

“This arena combat game was built from the ground up to be played in VR with your PS VR headset,” Hallahan pointed out. “Attack, evade, and move in any direction as you compete against pilots from across the galaxy. You’ll fight for glory, credits, and your life.”
