PlayStation Plus subscribers will get access to Rocksteady Studios’ Batman: Arkham Knight and Gunfire Games’ Darksiders 3 as part of the subscription service in September. Both third-person action games will be available for PlayStation 4 from Sept. 3 to Sept. 30 through PS Plus.

Batman: Arkham Knight was originally released in 2015. The sequel to Arkham City sees Batman dealing with the aftermath of The Joker’s death, and he must contend with longtime foes The Penguin, Scarecrow, Harley Quinn, and Two-Face, while confronting a new threat in the Arkham Knight. Rocksteady’s third game in the Arkham franchise introduced a new mechanic in the highly destructive Batmobile.

Hack-and-slash action game Darksiders 3 was released in 2018 and stars Fury, one of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, who is tasked with hunting down personifications of the seven deadly sins. Her promised reward is leadership of the Horsemen.

August’s PlayStation Plus games — futuristic racing game Wipeout Omega Collection and World War II shooter Sniper Elite 4 — are still available to download through Sept. 2.
