It may be hard to believe, but 2018 is almost over. That means it won't be long before January rolls around, giving PlayStation Plus members a new set of free PS4, PS3 and PS Vita games to add to the collection. Sony has announced the January series, so let's dive in and see what you can download from PSN between January 1 and February 5.
PS4 owners can pick up Steep, an extreme sports game from Ubisoft that lets you ski, snowboard, and slip in a wing to move from a mountain's snow-capped peaks to its powdery base. The second PS4 game for January is Portal Knights, which takes the building component of Minecraft and builds around it an RPG that encourages elaboration and exploration.
PS3 freebies are the Zone of the Enders HD Collection, which contains remastered versions of two PS2 mech games, and music / rhythm game Amplitude. PS Vita owners can grab the Fallen Legion: Rebellion's Flames (also playable on PS4) and Super Mutant Alien Assault.
If you read this in 2018, it is not too late to pick up your free PS Plus games in December. They include the Onrush racing game and the horror game Soma for PS4; Steredenn and SteinsGate for PS3; and Papers, Please and Iconoclasts for PS Vita.
PS Plus members should note that as of March 2019, Sony will no longer give away free PS3 and PS Vita games to PS Plus members. If you subscribe to PS Plus primarily for the free titles, you will turn off the subscription's automatic renewal option or cancel it at that time.
