PS4's Free PS Plus Games Still Available For January 2019

Get 'em while they're free.

12 Comments

Not only is it a new year, but it's also a new month. And because we've breezed passed the first Tuesday in January, a fresh set of six games are still available for free to all PlayStation Plus subscribers. So whether you have a PS4, PS3, or PS Vita, you can head to the PS Plus page to add the freebies to your library. Just make sure you do it before Sony changes them out for next month's games on February 5. [Update: The end of the month is drawing near, though you still have some time left to claim these games. They'll soon be replaced by February's freebies, marking the final time we get PS3/Vita games through Plus. On the bright side, Sony is expanding the storage limit on cloud saves.]

PS4 owners can grab the Ubisoft extreme sports game Steep, which takes place on an open-world version of the Alps that you can descend using skis, a snowboard, or wingsuit. The other PS4 game is Portal Knights, a co-op RPG that incorporates Minecraft-like building mechanics.

If you have a PS3, you can pick up the trippy music-rhythm game Amplitude (also playable on PS4) and the robot battling bundle Zone of the Enders HD Collection. January's games for Vita owners are the action-RPG Fallen Legion: Flames of Rebellions (playable on PS4 as well) and the arcade action-platformer Super Mutant Alien Assault.

If you use PS Plus mainly to fill out your PS3 or PS Vita game libraries, here's a friendly reminder: starting in March 2019, Sony will no longer give away free PS3 and PS Vita games for PS Plus members. It's unclear if anything will replace these freebies, but if you subscribe to PS Plus primarily for those free titles, consider turning off your subscription's auto-renewal option or canceling it by then.

FYI- You still need an active PS+ subscription to even use the PS3/Vita games, even if there won’t be any new ones.

@barcaazulYou likely aren't in NA, then. This article is exclusively for NA.

@barcaazul: Of what I remember, NA is Tuesday and EU is Friday. Either way, they always update at the first major update time in your region for the week. I just checked the EU blog and they claim Tuesday January 3, but that is actually Thursday. Also, after checking their listing on the EU PSN for the current games, the times are a mess since it reads from April last year to March 1 this year. It is unusual that the article doesn't clearly state that it is for NA, but the "PS Plus Page" link in the article leads to Playstation's en-us address, which is NA. Here is the link from the EU Playstation Blog about them coming on January 3:

@Ragnawind:

Normally the first Tuesday of the month in the EU also. May be different this month due to the public holiday I guess
