PlayStation Plus delivers free 'Invisible Inc.' and other games in December

Sony announced December’s lineup of free PlayStation Plus games, revealing that subscribers will be able to download copies of Invisible Inc., VVVVVV, and other standout games throughout the month, free of charge.

The announced lineup also features several multiplatform Cross-Buy titles, allowing PlayStation 4 owners to experience the majority of December’s offerings alongside PlayStation 3 and PS Vita players.

First up for PlayStation 4 owners, is Invisible Inc., an espionage-themed strategy game from Klei Entertainment, creators of Don’t Starve. Initially released for PC platforms, Invisible Inc. made its console debut earlier in 2016 with an array of platform-specific control optimizations and interface tweaks.

PS4 players with an active PlayStation Plus subscription will also get free access to Stories: The Path of Destinies, an overhead-view action-RPG developed by Spearhead Games. Featuring combo-driven melee combat mechanics, Stories equips adventurers with several new powers and upgrades throughout its single-player quest, and one of 24 different endings await at its conclusion, depending on decisions and dialogue choices made during the course of gameplay.

Wired Productions’ military-themed twin-stick shooter Tiny Troopers: Joint Ops is also up for grabs next month across the PS , PS3, and PS Vita platforms as a cross-buy title. PS Plus members can additionally look forward to free PS4 and PS Vita ports of Color Guardians, a side-scrolling platformer with lane-switching mechanics.

PlayStation Plus has two final platform-exclusive titles in store for subscribers in December, including the PlayStation Vita version of Terry Cavanagh’s gravity-flipping retro platformer VVVVVV. PS3 owners, meanwhile, can look forward to Hyper Void, a forward-scrolling shoot-’em-up in the vein of the arcade classic Tempest.

All of December’s featured PlayStation Plus games will be free to download for subscribers on Tuesday. Players waiting to grab the current lineup have until next week to pick up November’s games for free before they return to full price.
