PlayStation Plus TV spot boasts of “next gen multiplayer”

PlayStation Plus is going great guns following the PlayStation 4’s launch, and this new TV spot for the service quietly avoids mentioning that it’s required for most multiplayer titles while playing up the togetherness of online play.

The spot shows a group of friends playing in four different titles, in live-action reenactments. The first one looks like any number of survival sandboxes, but may be Evolve. The final game is pretty clearly Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag.

I’d welcome your input on the two in the middle; I think the space one might be the amazing-sounding Sonder, but I have no idea what’s going on with the hanging upside down and stick poking. Probably something really obvious.

Anyway: long story short, Sony made an ad and you can look at it and shoot off about whether paying for PS Plus is good, bad, or indifferent. Everybody wins.
