One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.
The free games being offered to PlayStation Plus members for January 2018 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below.
Happy New Year PlayStation Nation! We hope â€œplay more gamesâ€ is one of your resolutions for the new year, because PlayStation Plus members have some great titles coming in January!
Before we go any further, we are happy to announce that PlayStation Plus members can get Starblood Arena as a bonus game starting January 2 through March 6. This arena combat game was built from the ground up to be played in VR with your PS VR headset*. Attack, evade, and move in any direction as you compete against pilots from across the galaxy. Youâ€™ll fight for glory, credits, and your life.
Now, on to the PlayStation Plus monthly games for January!
First up, we have Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. This sequel follows the immediate aftermath of the Aug Incident, the day when mechanically augmented citizens all over the world were stripped of control over their minds and bodies. This game mixes first-person action, stealth, and RPG-elements to make for an enthralling adventure.
Next, we have Batman: The Telltale Series. Take on the role of Batman, both as the hero and his alter ego [SPOILER] Bruce Wayne. Where every choice has a consequence, see what it really means to be the Dark Knight. Another hand-crafted adventure game by the fine folks at Telltale, it is sure to entertain.
This monthâ€™s PlayStation Plus lineup also includes:
Sacred 3, PS3
The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, PS3
Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
Uncanny Valley, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
And there you have it. Tons of gaming to start your 2018 off right!
