Is Drawn to Death supposed to be free to play? Just kinda weird seeing a game geting its debut as a ps+ monthly.

It was originally going to be a paid-for game, then it changed to free-to-play, and now it's a PS+ monthly (with no real indication of pricing structure outside PS+, as far as I know).

It's not unusual for games to debut as PS+, there have been quite a few other games that launched that way.

Was going to grab LEGO City: Undercover on switch however I've read conflicting reports on how many controllers you need for co-op. If you can't do basic races with the standard controller in VS then I'm out.

Other than that Yooka-Laylee looks great and tempted by Persona 5 (just lack of time to commit more than anything)
