January 2016 PlayStation Plus games revealed

Here are January's free games on PlayStation Plus.

Sony has announced via their subscriber newsletter January's free PlayStation Plus games and there are fewer titles than expected. Check below for January's free games.

The small offering comes as a surprise as many expected a few free AAA games to be announced for the New Year. We'll keep you updated if there's any further news, but for now, that's all there is, folks.

UPDATE 31/21/16

Sony has announced four more free titles for January for PS3 and PS Vita.

  • Dragon Age: Origins (PS3)
  • Medal of Honour: Warfighter (PS3)
  • Nihilumbra (PS Vita)
  • Legends of War: Patton (PS Vita)

PS3 players get a sweet deal this month with two AAA titles. Dragon Age: Origins is an especially good deal, as it was voted by many as 2014's game of the year.

If you still haven't taken a look at December's free games, you've got until 4 January 2016 to claim them. With the King's Quest remake on PS4, over-the-top shooter Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon on PS3 and the under-appreciated RPG Freedom Wars on PS Vita, December's line-up of free PS Plus titles was impressive, so be sure to stake your claim before it's too late. Check the full list below.

  • King's Quest - A Knight to Remember (PS4)
  • Gauntlet: Slayed Edition (PS4)
  • Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon (PS3)
  • SSX (PS3)
  • Freedom Wars (PS Vita)
  • Rocketbird: Hardboiled Chicken (PS Vita)

Hardware: Rivals

Hardware: Rivals looks to replicate the success of Rocket League by bringing its own twist on the vehicular-based arena multiplayer experience to PlayStation 4.

If you're a Twisted Metal veteran or a Fired Up fanatic (I know you're out there), you'll want to join in on the madness when Hardware: Rivals launches.

Grim Fandango: Remastered

If you never got a chance to play Tim Schafer's 1998 point-and-click adventure, there's no better time than now. Last year, the Aztec-inspired, film noir adventure was remastered in glorious HD.

This joint venture between Double Fine and LucasArts has aged well. Its considered puzzles, quality humour and offbeat characters have just as much appeal in 2016 as they did in 1998.
