Has your PS Vita or PSP felt a little lonely lately? Well, it won't be lonely anymore if you happen to be a PlayStation Plus member and a fan of monster slaying.

Sony announced this morning that this week's PlayStation Plus update will feature only one new addition - Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. The title was originally released on the PSP a number of years ago, but it's now free for PSP and PS Vita owners. If you're new to Monster Hunter, Freedom Unite would be a good place to start for those wondering what Capcom's super popular series is all about. I can assure you - it's more than just hunting monsters.

Here's some of the features players will find in the game:

  • The biggest Monster Hunter title to date with over 500 hours of gameplay.
  • Huge variety of character customizations including 1400 weapons and over 2000 armor sets.
  • Players can form a team of up to 4 players through Ad-Hoc play and experience the social gaming phenomenon.
  • AI Felyne companion, who will accompany players on quests and provide aid through the challenging battles.
  • Fans of the series can transfer their data from Monster Hunter Freedom 2.
  • If Monster Hunter isn't your jam, there's a number of other games going on sale this week for PlayStation Plus members. The standouts include the entire BioShock franchise and Fez. The latter is launching on Tuesday for the PS4, PS3 and Vita, and PlayStation Plus members can get a small discount as part of the Spring Fever sale. Here's everything going on sale:

    Sony would also like to remind gamers that Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition for PS4 and Tomb Raider for PS3 will both leave the Instant Game Collection on April 1. If you have yet to download either game, you'll want to download them before the start of the month.
