Sony has pulled back the curtain on this week’s PlayStation Plus update, revealing two new titles that subscribers will be able to download for free as part of the Instant Game Collection.

On the PS3, PlayStation Plus members can grab last year’s Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, which has players simultaneously control two (wait for it…) brothers “as they set out to find a cure for their dying father.” The PS Vita will also get a bit of IGC-lovin this week with the classic “Worms” gameplay of Worms: Battle Island.

Speaking of the Vita, tomorrow’s PS Store update will kick off the new PS Vita Play 2014 discount program. Over the course of the next four weeks PlayStation Plus members will be able to grab 20% off the following Vita titles during their respective launch weeks:

Title Launch Week PS Plus Launch Price Regular Price
OlliOlli (1/21) 1/21 – 1/27 $10.39 $12.99

Dustforce (2/4) 2/4 – 2/10 $7.99 $9.99
TxK (2/11) 2/11 – 2/17 $7.99 $9.99

In addition to initial 20% savings, buying more than one of the titles between January 21, 2014 and February 17 will result in a bonus being credited to your SEN wallet ($3 for any two, $6 for any three, $10 for all four).

January has been a fantastic month for PlayStation Plus members, with titles like Don’t Starve, DmC: Devil May Cry, BioShock Infinite, and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons hitting the Instant Game Collection. With that many big IGC releases all in one month it will be interesting to see if Sony can keep up the momentum when the February preview is rolled out sometime next week.
