The new year is here and if you are already tired of all the cool games that Santa put under your tree, Sony is here to hand out a few other gems that you might have missed to give you even more gaming goodness to enjoy. That is, if you are a PS Plus member, of course. January’s allotment of free PS Plus games are out now on the PlayStation Store.
One of my favorite games of 2016, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, is the headlining PS4 freebie this month. The dystopian cyberpunk role-playing game casts you as Adam Jensen and tasks you with catching a terrorist group, which you can do by being a stealthy detective or a tech-enhanced killing machine, or some mixture of both.
In addition, the awesome Telltale’s Batman game, will be available as well. This is the first season of the story and puts players in tricky situations as both Bruce Wayne and his crime-fighting alter-ego. The decisions you make will have some consequence on the relationships around you, and the overall story.
The other PS4 freebies will include the wacky and fun party game That’s You! if you’re outside of North America and StarBlood Arena, which requires PlayStation VR to play. Also, the free games for the PS Vita will include Uncanny Valley and Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness. These two are both free on PS4, too.
Note that the PS Vita free games will have to be ‘purchased’ on PS4 and PS Vita separately since it is not normally part of Sony’s Cross-Buy scheme. Also note that in Europe and Australia, Psycho-Pass is only free on PS Vita, not PS4.
And last, but certainly not least, PS3 owners will get the awesome Sacred 3 and The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 for free.
