Sony has revealed the free games PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to delve into in the new year. December’s PS Plus lineup, headlined by Darksiders II and a Kung Fu Panda game, was a bit sad, but January kicks things up a notch with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Batman: The Telltale Series, and more. We’re also getting the bonus PlayStation VR game, Starblood Arena.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
This sequel follows the immediate aftermath of the Aug Incident, the day when mechanically augmented citizens all over the world were stripped of control over their minds and bodies. This game mixes first-person action, stealth, and RPG-elements to make for an enthralling adventure.
Batman: The Telltale Series
Take on the role of Batman, both as the hero and his alter ego Bruce Wayne. Where every choice has a consequence, see what it really means to be the Dark Knight. Another hand-crafted adventure game by the fine folks at Telltale, it is sure to entertain.
Bonus: Starblood Arena
This arena combat game was built from the ground up to be played in VR with your PS VR headset. Attack, evade, and move in any direction as you compete against pilots from across the galaxy. You’ll fight for glory, credits, and your life.
This month’s PlayStation Plus lineup also includes:
- Sacred 3, PS3
- The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, PS3
- Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
- Uncanny Valley, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
Nice to see PS Plus rebound after a couple slow months. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is an excellent triple-A experience, Batman: The Telltale Series is a solid yarn, and Starblood Arena is one of the better PSVR exclusives. Hopefully Sony keeps the good times rolling over the coming months.
