Andy Lum's Avatar Posted by on Dec 30, 2015 // Sony Computer Entertainment America

As we look forward to the New Year, we’re excited to share our January 2016 PlayStation Plus lineup with everyone. This month our PS4 games pay homage to a couple classic, fan-favorite titles, while updating the gameplay and graphics to PS4!

Hardware: Rivals makes its exclusive debut on PlayStation Plus. Get behind the wheel of a powerful tank or mobile attack jeep in this arcade-style, vehicle combat game. Inspired by the PS2 classic Hardware: Online Arena, Hardware: Rivals lets you challenge your friends or enter the online multiplayer arena on your own and experience epic vehicular mayhem with multiple maps, game modes, and special events.

If you need a breather from all the vehicle-on-vehicle combat, you can always turn to the twisted Mexican folklore of Grim Fandango Remastered. As Manny Calavera, travel agent for the Department of Death, you’ll guide poor souls to their eternal rest. Crime. Skeletons. Romance. You’ll experience it all in this update to the beloved adventure game.

These PS4 games are free for PlayStation Plus members starting on the first Tuesday of January, and you can find the full list of PlayStation Plus games below.

Full Lineup:

  • Dragon Age: Origins, PS3
  • Grim Fandango Remastered, PS4, PS Vita
  • Hardware: Rivals, PS4
  • Legends of War Patton, PS Vita
  • Medal of Honor Warfighter, PS3
  • Nihilumbra, PS Vita

Before you go, we want your feedback! Please leave us a comment below and tell us what you think of the lineup. Thank you for stopping by.

Until next time! Enjoy.

    Please Playstation, stop insulting PS4 gamers by passing all the 2nd rate freebies. It’s crappy free games month after month which isn’t worth the effort of downloading it, wtf!!!!!

    Well I appreciate Grim Fandango, Dragon Age. Grim I always wanted to play back in the day. Dragon Age I’ve actually never played either. Heard it was awesome.

    I ABSOLUTELY love this month especially considering i own all 3 systems. Awesome month!

    Grim is 1 of the best games all-time.

    Hardware Rivals is like Twisted Metal and super fun, certainly not a “2D indie”.

    Dragon Age Origins is phenomenal and it allows those who played Inquisition to go back to the roots of the series.

    Medal of Honor Warfighter is a AAA from DICE that i never got a chance to play, similar to Battlefield 3.

    Nihilumbra is a beautifully artistic game that i almost bought many times.

    Really strong list of games, and considering i just got The Fall PS4 for $3.99 on PSN i can’t complain. For roughly $3 per month for PS Plus i feel like i’m getting away with something, Ty Sony.

    People you need to post how you genuinely feel. Dont just read the comments, but actually voice your opinion. If you too are dissatisfied, then please say so. Say it on here, go on social media, Facebook, twitter, youtube. This company needs to realize that it is in their best interest to please the consumer and not the other way around. We will not march blindly into 2016 with the same Status Quo garbage that they have been spoon feeding us.

    Quite looking forward to it, actually. It gets me playing stuff I would never even consider going for, and more times than not, this ends well. Grim Fandango I’m happy about because I didn’t fancy splashing the cash for it just yet, and then the rest are a total mystery to me as of now. But yeah, can’t complain, would like some PS2 games interspersed every now and then though! ;)

    It’s pretty obvious why the PS+ freebies haven’t been as good for the last couple years. PlayStation is dominating. Back when Xbox 360 was in the lead, Sony pulled out the big guns. Unnecessarily now.

    Yet more crappy titles, glad I stopped autorenew on my account as this collection of rubbish does not warrant £40. The quality of PS4 titles has been garbage to say the least, uninspired remasters, bad 8 bit indie titles, episodic trash. Seriously thinking of selling all my Sony consoles and games and switching to XBox as the crap that is being passed off to Sony gamers is beyond a joke now.

    Really ffs crap games for free again on ps4 really thinking of shaping to xbox 1 least they give decent games and new games twice a month instead of once a month bull****. Also why can’t ps4 use external harddrive and every other console let’s you use it. SONY you have one last shot for Feb or else I going back to xbox and will only be selling xbox ones in my store since I dont want to sell my customers bad items


     

    + wCORRUPTEDw on December 31st, 2015 at 1:53 pm said:

    First let me start of with tho I wish Sony would put older games made from launch. Then the indie ones or other games. I need to stress that saying your switching to Xbox because of some freebies you don’t like is a baby’s cry for help. The’ye free. So what if your butt hurt Sony really doesn’t give to craps your going to Xbox 3 ppl I read said it that’s less then 1% of the ps community. I made my. To ps because Xbox is a joke. They put out what they need to make ppl buy their ****box. How many commercials of you seen that shows ps4 besides a holiday or Sony itself. Xbox pays advertiser’s to put them in it. Also Sony is this is what you get take it. If not then please do us all a favor and go whine to xbox.

    People are so unappreciated for what they get or have it’s pathedic.

    Sony the line up is kinda bare. Like to ps4 get a little more of a choice then just 2. I’ve downloaded a few of the free games over the year or so. Rocket league was my favorite.

    + PanTheMan16 on January 1st, 2016 at 2:13 am said:

    It’s true that DA:O is the best thing there. IMHO, it’s one of the best games of last-gen. Definitely in my top 3. But that’s a great thing, even if we have already played it. It’s great for those who haven’t. I also think MOH: Warfighter is a great choice. The first MOH (PS3) had a far better story (again, IMO), but Warfighter had the better online experience. And this month’s IGC will bring it back to life.
    Happy New Year, everybody!

    Dear Playstation, truly not the lineup I expected. With the announcement delay and the awesome release from Xbox. I really expected more. Although these games sound fun. I was hoping to start the new year on a high with a AAA release. Disappointed but hopeful for Feb. It’s my birthday, give us something decent like Blackflag or Watchdogs. Or surprise us with something awesome.

    So many “entitled” children here. No one owes you anything, you don’t like these games, don’t download them. You think a 50 dollar a year subscription entitles you to triple A games of you exact liking every month? Grow up. I’ve been a member for 2 years now, only spending 150 bucks total for 3 years, and I look at my ps3, ps4 and vita library of games, and it’s overwhelming hire many free titles I have now.

    DRIVECLUB PS+ EDITION is a 0/5 for me, because it’s basically just a demo. Plus this edition came out 6 months late with the promise of the full game. Alot of people got PS+ solely for the full game.

    Infamous: First Light is good, but it’s basically an expansion for the first game, Second Son, with only one set of powers and a shorter game.

    Rocket League is well built and I like crossplay, but it isn’t a substantial game content-wise, compared to a more costly game.

    Indie games that come out with Playstation Plus, are more costly to purchase on the Store than a mobile device for whatever reason and are better played on a mobile device anyways. There isn’t much replay value.

    Disappointingly, the PS4 titles each month show a great lack of effort, due to the fact that you now have to have it for multiplayer and that’s why most people get it. I wouldn’t be surprised if Playstation were to remove free monthly games at this point. It would be just as disappointing.

    I think, as usual, this is a balanced offering of games (especially if you happen to own and use 2 or more of the systems). Sony is far from perfect, but I feel the negativity toward PS Plus is often misplaced. People are complaining about not getting “AAA” titles but there are 2 reasons that is an unfair expectation. 1- software is where the profits come from. If Sony gives away all the best selling titles, it’s not generous, it’s bad business and unsustainable. 2- I’m sure people would love to get a “free” game like Fallout 4 from PS plus– except that a billion people already purchased Fallout 4 which would render it pointless for them. Personally, I appreciate the typically high quality indie games most because they allow for gaming experiences I would not likely have apart from them being PS + freebies.

    Side note: Dragon Age origins has a 9.0 rating from IGN and costs $23 on Amazon atm… There are valid Sony issues to complain about- But after subscribing for over two years, I really don’t think PS + is one of them.

    I’m not entirely certain as to what all the complaining is over. These are free games. FREE. I see at least 2 games this month that I am interested in trying. They aren’t the high grossing, low quality games like CoD, and that’s why I’m interested in them. And just to make sure I knew what the comparison was, I took a look at all the “better games” on Xbox One, they aren’t any better or worse than what you see here. The folks whining like little children about the FREE games they are given are going to do the same thing with the Xbox One titles, including the childish threats to switch to the “other” console. (That’s if they don’t already do that). Put your big boy pants on and either try something new or stop paying for PSN.

    Here’s my feedback….for over a year, the igc has been mostly garbage along with most of the sales and the discounts, you digital downloads are almost always more expensive than physical retail copies.

    I’m dissatisfied and i’m hoping you take our comments seriously and attempt to do better moving forward into 2016

I’m pretty sure Sony ain’t gonna get their feelins hurt cause the lost ur money on PS+ so what if u don’t like the free games hell the discounts on games and movies make up for the lack of awesome free stuff. Hell I have gotten multiple games and all the DLC bundled for under $5 Dollars, and that list includes resident evil 6, Mortal Kombat 9, and the dead Island series just to name a few.

How is it possible for Xbox to release AAA titles through 2015 and PS only in the beginning of the year ( and you remember why)?

    Japanese/Asian PS Plus subscribers got Killzone and Guilty Gear Xrd-SIGN within last year but US PS Plus subscribers did not get any AAA title since Injustice(which was given in 2014). I do not expect an AAA title every month but at least they can give AAA titles once or twice a year, I believe we deserve this as Plus subscribers…

    Really? So let’s say u pay full price on a 1yr sub for PS Plus…that’s roughly $4 per month ur paying.

    So…Resogun, Injustice Ultimate Edition, Outlast, Rocket League, inFAMOUS 1st Light, Guacamelee Super Turbo Edition, Driveclub PS Plus Edition, Strider, Walking Dead Season 2, Gauntlet, STFU, Broken Age, TRANSISTOR, Olli Olli 2, Oddworld New n Tasty, Styx are bad/small indie PS4 games? The value of those games alone is more than double the cost of 2yrs of Plus. Hell, even Magika 2 is a legit game and if u own a PS3/Vita then games like Dragon Age, God of War, Killzone, and Freedom Wars are huge.


     

    + metsienmaagi on December 30th, 2015 at 3:48 pm said:

    Resogun = really boring and over rated, 1/5
    Injustice Ultimate Edition = 1/5
    Outlast = 2.5/5
    Rocket League = fun to play few times, 2/5
    inFAMOUS 1st Light = didn’t play yet, but should be ok.
    Guacamelee Super Turbo Edition = 2/5
    Driveclub PS Plus Edition = 4/5
    Strider = ugly(art style),boring, If I want to play 2d, I play my nes/snes
    Walking Dead Season 2 =3.5/5
    Gauntlet = 2/5
    STFU = ??
    Broken Age = 2.5/5
    TRANSISTOR = indie trash
    Olli Olli 2 = super indie trash, 0/5
    Oddworld New n Tasty = 2.5/5
    Styx = semi ok.

    So I would buy 4-5 of these, but only when on sale and under 10e, so not so good in my opinion.

    You can’t assume that everybody would pay for these titles, or pay more than few coins after on sale.

    Rest of the games = bad indies, 99% are “games of one joke with bad art style to hide simple mechanics”. Old mario 1 looks better in my eyes than most of these.

    but ps+ is quite cheap, so im not really complaining, it just used to be “too good” before ps4 so now it feels like trash rain :)

    Funny how kids dismiss Grim Fandango (a former game of the yr) as “trash”. It’s also funny how all the newbies out there chime in with their loud voices and judge the igc as if it were ONLY the 2 PS4 games. You realize that all 6 games factor in? Literally the sales alone make up the roughly $3 per month i pay for PS Plus.

    And seriously, like tyler said, + is cheap. With no discounts, it costs $50 for a year, and if you have all three systems you get 72 games with a bunch of them being cross-buy in case you don’t have all three. That many games, plus discounts on new releases and extra discounts during sales, and multiplayer access… for $50… people who cry over this really need to get their priorities straight.

Feels like the last few months PS Plus lineups have been underwhelming to say the least. I’m not that upset due to the burst of good games that came out just before the holiday, with Rainbow SIx: Siege and Star Wars: Battlefront taking up huge portions of my time.

But I do expect a solid PS Plus lineup at least every few months, and this month didn’t do justice.

Maybe next month.


     

    + Jamin724 on December 30th, 2015 at 9:10 am said:

    Have to say I understand that technically we aren’t paying for the games anymore with plus that it is just for access to multiplayer. Though when you are advertising at press events that you “the gamer” are paying for this great library these games lately are weak. Even then the servers that we are paying for now still are broken. In my case I can’t even use my PlayStation credit card anymore unless I purchase games directly from my PS4 because of some address issue.

    I am usually not one to complain/troll, but you guys really need to step up the games if you are going to continue to market that as a selling point. Bring out the exclusives, offer a subscription for just the multiplayer, or offer a discount to other PlayStation services that you offer if you bundle it with PS+ like PS NOW. Heck I am sure there is some business reason to it, but why have only a month for these games keep them free for the year maybe? Anyways it is sad to see a service get worse as time goes on and it is sad that us as consumers have to accept it. I know I should speak with my wallet and just unsubscribe but then I loose the multiplayer. Just some constructive criticisms and I hope everyone has a great New Years!


     

    + AizawaYuuichi on January 8th, 2016 at 2:21 am said:

    @Jamin: The quality of PS+ is subjective. Personally I’m happy with the move away from big AAA games, because generally speaking, I buy what I want to play. What I miss out on are smaller, digital-only games that I’m not sure about. So PS+’s recent trend of giving away PSN games for free when they launch, and digital titles like Rocket League and Broken Age are perfect for me.
    And they used to keep games on + for months on end, back before the PS4, but it costs too much money cause then they have to license the game for a longer period of time. They announced at the time they made the change that the vast majority of people downloaded the free games within the first couple weeks anyway, so what’s the point of keeping them free longer? It’s just wasted subscription money at that point.

    Also, what do u consider Outlast, infamous 1st Light, Rocket League, Resogun, Strider, Walking Dead season 2, PvZ Garden Warfare, Injustice Ultimate Edition, Driveclub PS Plus Edition, Oddworld New n Tasty, Grim, Broken Age, Gauntlet, Trine 2 Enhanced, Transistor?

The overall quality of the PS Plus lineup far exceeds that of games w/gold.

    Injustice was horrible. It wasn’t worth the download. All of these little kids that like games just because they think it’s the cool thing to do. Sony gives us games that aren’t selling well, or that they expect to fail. They hope some little kids will like them and tell all of the mindless followers that they know at school and it will create a buzz about the game. People keep asking for Knack, so even though it bombed, they know people want it so they aren’t going to give it to you. They are hoping you will give up and buy it since you obviously want it so much.Unfortunately everything Sony does is geared toward Japanese fans, and the Japanese kids are the biggest followers there are, it’s all about fads in Japan, and unfortunately the kids in the U.S. are becoming just as dumb and mindless and Sony is taking advantage of that.

    This is actually the 3rd consecutive month that PlayStation Plus has had 2 AAA retail games. There have been some months where we received no AAA games, like October. But clearly people think it’s time we start receiving AAA games for PS4. Yes, Xbox Live Gold only gives 4 games a month with no cross-buy. Yet I still get jealous because Xbox One is starting to receive AAA retail games like Assassin’s Creed IV, Tomb Raider, Thief, and Rayman Origins.

Also, it’s nice to see Dragon Age and Medal of Honor in the PS3 lineup, but I wish there were more AAA titles that made it to the PS4 lineup too. I have all 3 systems but rarely fire up the PS3 anymore.

Surely you can start including titles like Evolve and Battlefield Hardline in the mix. These are games starving for a player base and a spot in the PS+ lineup might be just perfect. Subscribers get a recognizable and once sought after title, and these games get new blood: win/win.

    Do u realize the hundreds of games in the PS Now library? Do u think most ppl even own 7% of those games? They don’t. PS Now is a service that u can purchase for about $8 per month (1yr sub) and it’s aimed at ppl who’ve never played the games they’re offering. It’s for ppl who never had a PS3 or who don’t own a console or for ppl who want to play hundreds of games instantly with no download/install and no hdd space being used. It’s not a means of backwards compatibility, that is 1 of the last things it’s expected to be. It’s actually quite nice to instantly play a myriad of games with no install, no wait.

    PS Now launched prior to the BC that xbone offers, it has nothing to do with BC. It’s a service, take it or leave it…same with PS Plus. If ur so insulted then refrain from purchasing it. 3-4 bucks/montn for PS Plus lol. Pretty steep huh?

    Let’s talk facts, not subjective opinions..fact number one, this was a lame ass point and click adventure game from 1998 that i played on a barely Pentium pc with windows 95. It was by no means..ONE of the best games of all times…HELLO????? As a matter of fact, and I quote, ” the game was considered a commercial failure and factored into LucasArts’ termination of their adventure game development, contributing to the decline of the adventure game genre.”

    Well let me quote what is said right above the mention of bad sales:

    The game received universal acclaim from critics, who praised its artistic design and overall game direction in particular. Grim Fandango was selected for several gaming awards at the time of release, and is often listed as one of the greatest video games of all time.

    There most certainly is a correlation between something being good and how well something sells. The original ipod didnt sell millions of units because it sucked, and “From Justin to Kelly” didnt win an oscar because it was so good.

    I actually played the game…in 1998 on windows 95 on a pre pentium 750 mhz pc and it was / is a tedious point and click puzzle game. And if that is what you’re into, so be it. I’m not gonna argue whether you like a fish or dont and why you should or shouldnt.
    I’m all about logic, not emotions. As someone who played the game back in the day, it was as i wrote previously, a tiring point and click adventure game..period.

I personally buy it for mostly the game discounts, because truth be known, most of the free games they have given us over the past few years have been garbage. Games i’ve played one time and then never play again, with the exception of a few titles, overall.

    My biggest gripe with plus is the game sales and game discounts and the overall selection of games they choose to put on sale or discount and when and for how much….those are my main gripes. But ya know what..truth be known..the free games collection…
    SUCKS…full stop. So, it is what it is, and i’m voicing, what it is.

    oh, and i didnt just try…cause..oops,..i did it again…boom

    @hundreddollarsox
    Your comment actually shows that you are talking out of your a$. Grim wasn’t point ‘n’ click adventure. It was played with keyboard.
    So gtfo and stop trolling.
    I personally wouldn’t put it in any GOTY list or one of the best games, but it was fun as hell with excellent humor. I definitely would like to give it one more run after so many years to get me back in the good old days :)
    Hardware Rivals looks like a game with good potential. If it’s well polished it could give us some fun times. It’s not Rocketleague but it can get close.

    We’ll do this again for the real slow remedial types like insertbrainnow. Whether you used a keyboard or not doesn’t change the fact that it was and still is a point and click game. This was not super mario bros, this was not Doom, this was not zelda, this was not pitfall, this was not river riad….it was and still is a ridiculous puzzle game. The input device is irrelevant. You’re a dope and may every game you receive from here on out be a point and click puzzle game. But in such a brain dead catatonic state, i’v no idea how you’d play.


     

    + inSertCoiNoW on January 1st, 2016 at 2:23 pm said:

    @ hundreddollarsox, The type of game you are referring to is not called puzzle and its definitely not called point and click. Point and click is a description of the way the game is played, point and click… and what is the device you use to point and click? That’s right Pinky, a mouse.
    Point and click can be any game genre puzzle, strategy, adventure… Grim fandango is ADVENTURE game same as Broken Age we got earlier.
    And guess what… a game that has some puzzle solving in it is not by definition a puzzle game.
    …and I hope we get a good Adventure every now and then because its a great genre. Must admit its not for everybody because it requites some brain activity

Hardware Rivals was already released on PS4 and is a free to play game. How are you going to count this as a PS Plus monthly game?

I think its a really week month, nothing in here stands out. Disappointed.

Still, I only pay $30 a year for PS Plus as I get my yearly memberships on sale online, so its a decent thing to have overall, I am set til 2017. I would recommend that everybody look up and wait for sales and not pay the $50+ a year normal price.

Hopefully they will add more good games soon. And as fro F2P games, Smite and many other high class free to play games are on XBOX One already that we do not have yet. I know we will get some of them soon like Smite and Paladins, but I don’t like that we get stuff 2nd already. Step it up sony.

The free games on ps plus are just a bonus I mean if they gave away AAA titles all the time then they would be paying us basically instead of making money. I’m pretty sure the whole idea of a business is to make money giving away games people may or may not still buy loses money. Granted they could give away games like evolve which was ehhh I don’t think it was worth the $60 I paid but oh well. Also the people saying xbox’s games with gold is better that’s because they are trying to make up ground with the PlayStation if they were even close to them they wouldn’t be giving out such good games. They are what 20 million consoles behind PlayStation, they kind of need to give stuff away since no one wants their crappy console. I remember when all Xbox did was charge for online play and PlayStation took it a step further and gave us free games a month essentially for free and cheaper then Xbox charges. So I don’t see a problem getting a free bonus game or two a month even if it isn’t the best line up but I’m sure as they continue expanding their library they will eventually give us better games.

    these games are not a bonus. you are paying for them. And with xbox offerings, their 360 games also work on xbox one… I guess Sony could offer free streaming of the free ps3 IGC titles, but they won’t do that.. if they did, i guess that would be a ” bonus”

    + thekeelog on December 30th, 2015 at 5:52 pm said:

    That’s an adorable take on how the IGC started. It wasn’t out of the good of Sony’s heart, it was because they got hacked. And PS+ was an incredible service during its PS3 run. It regularly gave away not just AAA games, but games that people wanted to play. Then Xbox added Games with Gold, and their lineup was pathetic and served only to make PS+ look better. But then Microsoft dropped the ball with the Xbox One, Sony took a huge lead, and they got cocky. Since the middle of this year, Sony’s been content to coast, confident that the huge lead they’ve earned will always be there. The scariest thing is they’re probably right.

    Sony’s got a hardware advantage, which fortunately for them, they’re unlikely to lose, but in every other aspect, they’re quickly losing ground to the Xbox. Live is still more stable, GWG is objectively better, and they’ve added backwards compatibility. In the same time, Sony has introduced PS2 games that we have to buy again.

And Hardware Rivals was ALREADY free. Add that to the fact that last month, giving us one chapter of Kings Quest was a joke. Plus, this keeps happening to me, I buy the game on sale and the next month it is available for free. Happened this year with Never Alone, Unfinished Swan, Broken Age, Gauntlet and Grim Fandango.

    Yes, I am a fan of the Xbox, it’s a high quality console. So is the PS4. You can’t say PS4 didn’t have a rough year for games. Even the higher ups said so. PS3 was the first Sony console I ever owned, but I also had a PSP and 2 Vitas. PS4 was actually my number one choice of consoles when this generation started. I had pre-ordered and paid off the console in full before it even came out and thought that it would be a terrible idea for anyone to get an Xbox after the whole E3 debacle. The lack of non-indie games made me decide to get an Xbox One because the console had been out for a year and a half and had a great back-catalog of games to play and Microsoft had corrected a lot of its missteps. I hoped that when I was done with that catalog, I could hop on over the some PS4 exclusives I’ve been dying for like The Witness, Uncharted 4, or No Man’s Sky. Unfortunately, all of those have been delayed. Believe me, I’m a fan of PS4, but Sony needs to get better with keeping their release dates. PS4 is a great piece of hardware and I am glad I have it, just during this slump I’m glad I didn’t have to pay for it and I’m glad I have an Xbox One and Wii U.

    Keep in mind that when PS+ first debuted on PS3, it already had a big catalog of games for the PS+ games to be chosen from. Even considering that the PS4 has been out for a while, there still aren’t that many games they can choose from since games are taking longer and longer to make and release slower; that’s not even mentioning that a grip of games were delayed into 2016. Unlike a game like Rocket League, which made up the lack of sales by doubling-down on the DLC plan, games like Fallout 4 would leave the developer burned by releasing on PS+ or even being on PS+ soon after because it takes so long to make those paid pieces of content. You don’t seriously want to promote developing DLC before the game is complete, do you? Keep in mind that the vast majority of the revenue from a game comes from the game’s release.
