Free PS4 PS Plus Games Of December 2017 Revealed

Sony reveals December's freebies.

123 Comments

December is here, and that means another batch of free games is on the way for PlayStation Plus members. Six more games are set to be available soon for all subscribers, with PS4, PS3, and Vita owners each getting at least two.

As usual, the main highlight comes on PS4. First up is Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition, the remastered version of the 2012 action game. It includes all DLC released for the original version along with improved graphics and other enhancements. It'll be joined by a more family-friendly game in Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends. The ongoing bonus PS Plus game, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, will continue to be available throughout December, too. If you're in Europe, you can still grab That's You.

PS4 will owners will receive a third game this month, thanks to Cross-Buy: the Metroidvania-style Forma 8, which is officially one of Vita's free games for December, will also be playable on PS4. Vita's other new game in December will be co-op shooter Wanted Corp. Rounding out the month's lineup are two PS3 games: Syberia Collection (which includes adventure game Syberia and Syberia II) and Xblaze Lost: Memories.

These freebies will be available starting this Tuesday, December 5. That makes now your last chance to grab November's PS Plus games, which include Worms Battlegrounds. You can see the full December lineup below.

As previously announced, a beta of the upcoming Monster Hunter World will be available exclusively to PS Plus members. It will run from December 9-12 and features the Ancient Forest and Wildspire Waste levels, where you'll hunt a Great Jagras and Barroth. An additional bonus will also be available during December and into next year in the US. From December 12 through January 9, PS Plus subscribers can claim the Smite PlayStation Plus Pack, which consists of a variety of gods, skins, voice packs, and an announcer pack.

@nazart81: Did you expect numerous newer AAA games every month for your silly PS Plus fee?

@akassassin11: Nobody forced you to have PS+, Mr. Caps. Especially considering your declaration that you don't play online games. There have been several top quality AAA games this year and solid indies on PS+. If none of it interests you -and- you don't play online, cut the service and selectively buy your single-player games.

@akassassin11: Oops, sorry my sarcasm radar was off there! I'm too used to people going bonkers lately in game site comments I guess. Good points/analogy here.

New here. How's the trolling? Last site I used to inhabit was overrun with them. Better here?

@beuneus12: How is 500 GB tiny, when you can just delete the games you don't play or upgrade the HDD. Easy.

@LasDK: When games are 35 to 80 GB each that 500 GB doesn't look so big all of a sudden

@btotheotothejtothef: If you are playing several games at a time, then yes it could. I think most just play one or two. My 500GB HDD hasn't reached over 400GB once in the three years I've had it.

@SprSynJn: Most people focus on a single game, or two, at a time. You can easily add an external drive to PS4.

Can't really complain about these games as I apparently thought enough of many of them to get them before.

Thought we might get something a little more AAA and/or PS4 exclusive for Christmas month. The Order 1886 perhaps or Killzone so I can finally finish the after credits level. Sold the game as i'd had enough but after a long break I wouldn't mind going back. Saying that I never got around to playing Darksiders so I 'll still give it a go.

@akassassin11: KZ Shadow Fall online was some of the most fun I've had playing online in the last decade. Really enjoyed the campaign too, though it did have some issues.

I'm also a HUGE fan of The Order and find myself thinking about going back to play the game multiple times a month. Loved it. I really hope Sony green lights a sequel for that one.

@CrouchingWeasel: I still haven't played it. If fact, that is mainly the reason why I haven't played it. Quite ironic :DDD

I thought ye were getting Tomb Raider for a few seconds when I saw the pic.

The character from Syberia looks a bit like Lara Croft.

I gave up on PS Plus last April.

The lineup of games is crap most months. I think Just Cause 3 and Metal Gear 5 were the only good games they gave all year.

Anyway I prefer to be able to keep my games.

Online multiplayer should be free its just that Sony and Microsoft are greedy.

@quinnd6: feel sorry for you then. Because I've got tons of good games this year plus the added plus discounts on games. Gotta love how people complain about paying for PlayStation plus. You can find deals on it throughout the year. I paid $40 for a year membership the last time I renewed it because of a deal. That's literally less than the cost of 2 pizza hut deliveries for a year. Full price? 3 pizza hut deliveries for a year. If you can't afford that then find a new hobby or cut back on the pizza/fast food.

@playstationzone: Yet you got what you paid for. Not a single person said Live wasn't better (except the point about annoying players which no one can help)

@PrpleTrtleBuBum: On paper, Live is better as there are far more servers. In practice though they're both pretty much the same. As someone who uses both, I really can't tell a difference in performance.
