January’s PlayStation Plus lineup includes six freebies in all, with the PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PlayStation 3 each receiving a pair of free-to-download games starting next Tuesday.
PlayStation 4 owners will receive free downloadable copies of Hardware: Rivals in January. A revamped version of the PlayStation 2-era vehicular combat game Hardware: Online Arena, Hardware: Rivals boasts online multiplayer gameplay across multiple included maps, and weekly community events will keep the experience fresh in the months to come.
Also on tap for the PlayStation 4 next month is Grim Fandango: Remastered, an upgraded port of LucasArts’ 1998 PC game. The PS4 edition of Grim Fandango features a redesigned control scheme, improved character textures, a new soundtrack, and optional developer commentary. PlayStation Plus members will also receive the PS Vita edition of Grim Fandango: Remastered as part of next month’s lineup.
The PlayStation 3, meanwhile, will host free downloadable copies of BioWare’s RPG epic Dragon Age: Origins and EA’s Call of Duty-like first-person shooter Medal of Honor: Warfighter. Both games previously premiered at retail on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and Dragon Age: Origins features a sprawling storyline that players can continue in the 2014 sequel Dragon Age: Inquisition on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PCs.
Over on the PS Vita, PlayStation Plus members can expect to play the turn-based strategy game Legends of War: Patton for free next month. January’s final freebie for Sony’s portable platform is Nihilumbra, a stylish 2D puzzle-platformer from indie developer Beautifun Games.
January’s PlayStation Plus lineup will be free to download for subscribers starting on January 5th, 2016.
