PlayStation Plus: January’s Free Games

It’s almost time to ring in another New Year, so let’s take a peek at what Plus members can play to kick off 2015.

PlayStation 4 owners can leave their pink neon mark on the city of Seattle in inFAMOUS: First Light, a standalone expansion to inFamous: Second Son that outlines the backstory of the troubled conduit, Fetch. Additionally, there’s The Swapper, where you’ll use a cloning gun to solve puzzles in hopes of getting yourself off a creepy space station. On PS3, you can unleash a lot of chaos in an open-world via Prototype 2 or take a trip down memory lane with the revamped classic platformer DuckTales Remastered. Finally, Vita owners can nab Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition so they can enjoy some first-person shooting on the go, as well as test their arcade game skills with the single-screen platformer Whoa Dave!

All of these games will be free for Plus members starting January 6th. If you want to see these titles in action, check out the video below.

  • January lineup kicks off a great start for 2015. Awsome month and awsome year!

  • Sweet!

  • Richard_Evil

    Just for Duke Nukem 3D alone this month is awesome!!

  • looks good!

  • Yay Looking Forward to January Free Game’s not sure what to play frist PS vita or PS4 or Could get some retro play in on my PS3 with Duck Tales

  • I can’t wait

  • CaptainFatt

    Seriously……I just bought this Infamous in October and you are already going to make it free to PSN+? That seems unfair to the PSN+ fans who have had the game less than 6 months, and now you are going to give it to all the subscribers for free. It would be nice for those of us who have already bought titles you are making free, to have some sort of way to redeem it for other games. Like a partial credit.

  • OmegaMaverick

    Hi Everyone and Happy New Year 2015!!!! i just wanted to ask if SEN or anyone in Sony that’s involved with games can make King of Wushu MMORPG appear on the PS4 console too pleaseeeeeeeee!!! it’s being released on PC and also Xbox one and i (and i’m sure many others) would love to be able to play it on my PS4 simply because PS4 = BEST Console ever.

  • OmegaMaverick

    Sorry for the off-topic comment. I wanted to say Thank You for these great games that we get from PS+. Greatness. I really hope King of Wushu will be released on PS4, i wouldnt mind it being like Final Fantasy 14. :D Good Day to all , Cya !

  • First Light? Yeeeeeeesssssssss. So glad I resisted temptation to get PSN cards after Christmas =P

    Prototype 2? Excellent. Got the first game on my Xbox but never finished it. Will definitely take advantage of that at some point in the future.

    This month’s already great to me.

  • legoturkey02

    seriously? school starts on January fifth (which is also my birthday) and I can only play on weekends because of my immense amounts of homework. First light will have to wait

  • InfamouSwarm

    MAKE BLACK OPS 2 FOR PS4 that would be awesome and worth the time!

  • One of the best months in over a year. Woah Dave is probably the only junk of the group. Duck Tales will be fun just for nostalgia, and Duke Nukem has plenty of replay value still especially on Vita/PSTV. Both PS4 titles are great for the first time since PS4 came out.

  • Not Cottontails or Ponytails, No DuckTales. WooHoo!

    Need to really look over list again. Things seem interesting at least enough to play a round or two.

  • tycomitchie03

    I did not get any money for psn if any body can help that would be great

  • DymundPrynsess

    Can someone please tell me this…..I cannot for the love of god sign into the psn. How can I get this game if I can’t sign in at all, can I get it on my account n when I can sign in it wI’ll b ready to download, plz let me kno!!!

  • Piece of crap…these games are not even available to download yet. What about the free movie from the Email that was sent out on December 24th? Keeps saying “The redemption website is experiencing issues which may result in users unable to complete the process. We have currently disabled the redemption website while we make improvements. We apologize for the inconvenience, and advise to check back at a later date.” The 5 extra days they are giving us is bullcrap when it takes 2 weeks to give you what they promised.

  • ThumbsOfSteel74


    No problem. So you’re unable to sign in on one or more consoles? If you’re able to post here, then you should be able to sign into the web store.!/en-us/home/games

    If you can, you’ll have a whole month to add these games to your download list. Here’s hoping you can sign in and play them soon.

  • What date will the free games will come out?

  • lucky lol when i bought my ps4 i almost bought InFamous firstlight lol

  • nice

  • FajrieHanggono

    For Playstation plus free games, we need more AAA Games for PS Vita…

  • Ichabod_Slipp

    Why is sony not including pstv on the list of free games? Can the vita games also be played on pstv? Thanks!

  • @Mando44646 #87
    ha ha! jokes on you!

    duke megaton edition is being made by devolver digital , an indie company

  • January Seems Pretty Weak I think Compared to previous months :(

  • TomatoDragon

    First Light was killer. Love those challenge arenas. Think I’ll be picking up Swapper. My Vita been getting quite the work out.

  • slevin_ataraxia

    When will exactly games will be available

  • Thank you. Looking forward to these. Nice titles for all 3 systems. I like that Swapper is on all 3, it’s awesome to have the option to play on whichever I choose. I also think Ducktales Remastered would be awesome on the Vita.


    This game lineup isn’t exciting to me at all, such old games for the PS3, and the PS4 is basically getting DLC. This isn’t what I was expecting, especially after PSN was down for the holidays.

  • DaddyyyVuannn__

    Infamous First Light Yeahhh Mane ! , Prototype 2 I’m Definitely Playing That

  • When will these be available? I can still only get Injustice and the other december games


    games will be available 1-6-15 after the psn store updates. which is around 6:00 p.m. central time.

  • I can’t wait for the Megaton Edition. The Vita is doing really well with PS Plus games being Free on release

  • DoctorSp4zz

    With my ps3, ps4, ps vita and my newest addition my PS tv, I will be gladly handing over my money for eternity to ps plus. Some of the best games ive evr played were from ps plus, esecially on my 4. Mercenary Kings and The binding of Isaac are two of the BEST indie games ive ever played, i still play them over many AAA titles.

  • musclednightmare

    I’m greatful every month I get free games. Considering I pay for the ps plus subscription and NOT the free addons ?

  • Does this mean we are actually getting an update this week?

  • If I don’t have a ps vita can I download duke nukem for ps3? (I have ps plus)

  • Cherryblossomxo

    Please bring Black ops call of duty to ps4 !!!!


    Nice, but what ever happened to Planeside2 that was suppose to be released 12/31/14 ?…. it shows its out now for the ps4 but no place to download it?

  • SomeRandomKnight

    Thank u!!!!

  • Please help my free games havent came in
    I only have injustice what do i do

  • So are January’s games going to be available in February? Because it’s the 5th and they aren’t available. Did North Korea threaten you again?

  • musclednightmare

    How about limiting the comment character for all these bored people. And people quit whining about the plus lineup games!!! They aren’t paid for. You want sony to stop ps plus free games altogether?!?! Be happy with the free grab bag

  • BlondeStoner426

    So when does this happen? It’s January 5th, and i still have the December lineup for my downloads.

  • nighttreader1

    Can say absolutely stoked with this months lineup. Die hard ps plus subscriber who started with the playstation magazine way back when. Love my ps3 and ps4

  • This is a great lineup for January and I’m just about 15 hours away! I bought infamous second son the day I got my ps4 and beat it so first light will be a great way to re enter that world. I had been waiting on duck tales to hit plus, i haven’t been playing my ps3 much lately this gives me a reason too. I didn’t even know they had a duke nukem remake coming to vita and it’s on plus for free thank god! Least now I can forget about that garbage duke game I played couple years back, it was one worst games I ever had. Sony I believe in you can’t wait to see what February lineup has to offer!

  • To everybody asking the store updates January 6th that’s when the ps plus lineup will change. :)

  • Bfernando_925

    For the people who don`t know every free game from ps plus will not be playable when your membership expires. if you are always a member, the game will be yours forever to play unless your ps plus is renewed. war frame is one of the games too. hopefully i helped new ps plus members with their question ;)

  • DeadHeadFread

    do we need to own infamous second son to play firs light ? o

  • roxashunter2
