PlayStation Plus: Free Games for December 2017

Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition headlines this month's free games lineup for PlayStation Plus members.

James Hallahan's Avatar Posted by PlayStation Plus

Hey PlayStation Plus members – we have an action-packed game selection for the PS Plus free games lineup in December. Let’s take a look.

Become Death, the most feared of the legendary Four Horsemen, in Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition. The Deathinitive Edition includes all DLC, alongside updated graphics rendering and reworked game balancing. It is instantly playable and sure to make this a Deathcember to remember.

In Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends, face off alongside or against Po and other Kung Fu Panda characters in up-to four person battles in the iconic Kung Fu Panda universe. This is the perfect game to bring families together for some friendly rivalry during the holidays.

This month’s PlayStation Plus lineup also includes:

  • Syberia Collection PS3
  • Xblaze Lost: Memories, PS3
  • Forma.8, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
  • Wanted Corp, PS Vita

As a reminder, we are giving PlayStation Plus members a bonus PlayStation VR game – Until Dawn: Rush of Blood. It’s available now through January 2 for PlayStation Plus members in U.S., Canada, and Latin America. This survival horror arcade shooter will be sure to give you a scare as you blast your way through hordes of enemies. Download it now (if you haven’t already) and buckle up for the most disturbing roller coaster ride you’ll ever take.

Monster Hunter: World is rapidly approaching its release, but you can get a taste of the hunt from December 9 to December 12 exclusively as a PlayStation Plus member. In this beta, you’ll be tasked with hunting a Great Jagras and an Anjanath in the Ancient Forest, as well as a Barroth in the Wildspire Waste. While these are your main quest targets, be on the lookout for other deadly monsters roaming each ecosystem.

Lastly, for a limited time, PlayStation Plus members can grab the Smite PlayStation Plus Pack for free! The bundle includes 31 Skins, 20 Gods and Voice Packs, plus the Khepri Announcer Pack. The bundle is available from December 12 to January 9.

And that’s it for the year. See you in 2018!

I’ve been asking who idea was it to start charging to play online . That’s one of the reasons beside the best games I’ve been a big fan of the system.

    Microsoft. We have them to thank for proving that forcing people to pay for online MP access is viable, and lucrative.

    vosonnier said:

    December 1st, 8:20 am

    They charge you to play online because it’s a service that cost money to provide. That and there’s a more simple reason, they charge you because they can…

They musta run out of Telltale nonsense to give us..
*I hated Darksiders2. Something was lost between the 1st game & this..

November 30th, 12:50 am

You know this makes me laugh. Sony does not have to give you a thing, they’re doing it A because robber soft did it and B because they thought we would like them. If you are unhappy maybe you can instead ask them politely to open a poll instead and let the community choose from a select line of games and if you are still unhappy it would be your fault :)

Did you run out of budget or something I haven’t really seen anything all that good on ps+ for a couple months now and this month is just well pathetic… please do better next year.

    kentuckyfried said:

    December 1st, 1:28 am

    A Rush of Blood is a nice surprise but sadly, the PSVR and I parted ways a couple of months ago.

    mattblood221 said:

    December 1st, 12:08 pm

    Why the hell would you do that PSVR is awesome SKYRIM VR is out & DOOM VFR is out today

kanye1234567510 said:

November 30th, 1:38 am

I was thinking of buying ps plus, but Sony puts out such a bad free games for users every month so I’m not buying…

musibat said:

November 30th, 5:28 am

Except for Monster Hunter world Beta the rest is Meh. Very disappointing.

StygianAgenda said:

November 30th, 6:55 am

Yet *another month in a row* in which every game being given away by Sony is either one I’ve already bought or don’t have the slightest bit of interest in.

As much as I appreciate the discount my PS+ membership gives me on titles I buy, I’m finding it insulting that month after month I’m presented with games that I’ve already bought as some sort of so called gift. We –the subscribers — need an alternative option, such as a credit for a game of equal value when we already paid for what you’ve suddenly decided to give away for free.

There’s no reason why frequent buyers of games should be penalized for buying more games –if anything, Sony should be rewarding us more because we spend more money per year with them on average. But what do we get? Games we’ve already bought, along with trolls telling us that we should be thankful somehow. Sony –fix this. Straighten out this so-called free games situation, and do something about your users that troll other users. There’s no reason for anyone to have to tolerate that out of anyone else here.

Well, my membership runs out next month so I couldn’t really give a toss. Yes, we have had a few god games this year but not enough to warrant renewal. I wouldn’t mind but they feeding us this bloody enthusiastic rhetoric which, I assume, is supposed to make us feel grateful for such p**s poor content. Oh well, my children. Enjoy your lack lustre games and D grade indie games. I’m off to buy some second hand games which I get to choose. Merry Christmas to one and all………………………………….

    mattblood221 said:

    November 30th, 12:03 pm

    I dont where you say theres only been a few good games this year but theres been a good number just because dont like them doesnt mean they are bad like

    1. LittleBigPlanet 3 Feb
    2. Tearaway Unfolded
    3. Killing Floor 2
    4. Life is Strange
    5. Until Dawn
    6. Tokyo Jungle
    7. Just Cause 3
    8. Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry
    9. inFamous: Second Son
    10. Strike Vector Ex
    11. Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain
    12. Amnesia: Collection
    13. Until Dawn: Rush of Blood
    14. Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition

    Can you explain to me how are there are only a few good games?

Victory_Class said:

November 30th, 7:07 am

Not interested in the Kungfu Panda. But I’ll take Darksiders. Thanks for the game. :)

TheTrickster15 said:

November 30th, 8:34 am

It’d be nice if it was at least a pack Darksiders with Darksiders 2 I’ve never played the 1st one but I’ll still get the second one just to have another free game.

Zetsuai85 said:

November 30th, 9:01 am

Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends sounds like some cheap stuff what a let down .. “””””This is the perfect game to bring families together for some friendly rivalry during the holidays.”””” lol and its a single player !! thank you Sony!!

PurpleMikey said:

November 30th, 10:00 am

I remember playing both on Ps Now… I remember unsubscribing cuz of the lack of good games too.
Hope ps plus users will get huge discounts on good games this month :)

AND WE NEED THE 12 DAYS OF SALES LIKE EUROPE HAVE RIGHT NOW.

ToFu1990 said:

Please Sony start giving better monthly titles! Do you guys not read the comments.

FlippinFicticiou said:

November 30th, 12:10 pm

Ahh yes, entitled whiny people bashing a service they still are gonna pay for. Just stop, if you dont like what they give or the service then go somewhere else. I understand thet you feel you deserve better, and if someone else is willing too bow more towards your misguided needs then by all means, leave. The rest of us are either gonna pick up the games and not complain. Or, ignore them, simple.

PokeZeldaGamer said:

November 30th, 2:47 pm

Y’know, with the release of The Sims 4, the least you could’ve done was… Y’know… Make The Sims 3 a PS Plus game? On PS3? Or even just make it downloadable in the first place? You should put more recognizable games on here. Yes, Kung Fu Panda is recognizable, but most people (including myself) will automatically assume it to be another horrible licensed game, considering the very low amount of good licensed games… Sony, you’re cool and all, but you need to step up your game. Don’t become another EA. Actually, no. Origin’s On The House is better than this. Last was Steamworld Dig, now PvZ GOTY. At least people know most of the games they put up there, and you’re like “Hey guys, y’all know Syberia Collection? ‘course ya don’t, but too bad it’s free now.

I dunno. I think that overall I get my coins worth every year. Sometimes I am disappointed by the selections but for what it is I am all good. Thanks Sony.

DustyBlue said:

November 30th, 5:35 pm

Kung Fu Panda? Are you kidding me?! A movie-based game? FOR PS4?!?! This is a new low for PS+, you all should be ashamed of yourselves. And this is meant to be the final batch for 2017? This is your Christmas gift to us all?! After you raised the price to PS+ subscriptions?! You disgust me… I ought to spit in your faces, it’d be a much more pleasant time than Kung Fu freaking Panda…

Darius26663 said:

November 30th, 6:40 pm

Didn’t we just get rush of blood free last month? I was really looking forward to the inclusion of the psvr stuff with my plus membership as a way to try out new stuff I might not have. Same game twice in a row just seems a bit weird.

    Darius26663 said:

    November 30th, 6:42 pm

    Or maybe I could read the whole thing before I comment… either way having vr stuff shoe up each month would be nice.

    mattblood221 said:

    November 30th, 8:56 pm

    I agree but we know they are only going to do it every two months plus I am planning on getting Skyrim VR & DOOM VFR I cant feaking wait for it

SilentNova said:

November 30th, 8:08 pm

I have been tempted to buy Kung Fu Panda because of my daughter. Glad I do not have to now. I prefer getting games like this only because they are not the ones I normally spend my money on directly and I get the majority of my games at launch. Thank you Prime and Best Buy Gamers Club Unlocked. I do own two from this list already, but only two which is not so bad.

Kid_Grim said:

November 30th, 8:20 pm

For some reason I figured Mad max or Shadow of Mordor was going to be in the lineup, shows how much I know. Guess no Christmas present from sony again this year.

kentuckyfried said:

December 1st, 1:23 am

why not auto-add these to all active PS plus member’s collections, if they are free? Just asking since I probably forgot most previous months since PS Plus went live with the free games…

kentuckyfried said:

December 1st, 1:37 am

C’mon Sony…give us Knack!

tmpcruz said:

i want my playstation plus money back

vosonnier said:

December 1st, 8:24 am

People shouldn’t be depending on PS Plus monthly free game offerings as their primary source of games. If there’s a game you really want you should just go buy it. These free games are really just a way to soften the burden of having to pay $60 a year for online multiplayer.

    Akmaljon said:

    December 1st, 10:35 am

    no offense, but I don’t know why people think primary point of having ps+ is for online multiplayer? In ps3 people didn’t subscribe for ps+ for online multiplayer. That came as an addition after ps4 was released.

chadobr said:

December 1st, 6:23 pm

im sorry but really? darksiders is a wonderful game but kung fu panda?

BrandonLeigh2009 said:

December 1st, 8:24 pm

Darksiders 2 is one thing; great game if you haven’t played it yet. Everything else is typical playstation garbage. Bring back voting, Sony.

Blood Rush has been given away for free before too so that’s lame.

… Kung Fu Panda? Really?

    BrandonLeigh2009 said:

    December 1st, 8:29 pm

    *Rush of Blood*

    mattblood221 said:

    December 4th, 9:06 pm

    Brandon they hold it there for 2 months as it says they are not going to give away a different PSVR every month that would be stupid

meow-vicious said:

December 1st, 10:22 pm

My son and i thank you for all the cool games you give out.I really dont understand why theirs so much crying about games.They given us so much to try out..Look you should be thankful for the games.Sony really dont have to give notting._.But they do.I thankful and always happy.

Shammyshoo said:

December 2nd, 7:33 am

Great! Another pile of crap! Thanks Sony!

TheTyranntKuma said:

December 2nd, 10:33 am

The list of playable games in the past 2 years: La Mulana and Super Meat Boy. Really starting to regret not getting an Xbox. Between the bad games, the broken browser, inability to report cheating, and crashes, it doesn’t even make for a proper paper weight.

Xenthia2 said:

December 2nd, 10:01 pm

Ugh. You could’ve given us the first Kung Fu Panda game which was actually good, but instead we get this Smash Bros wannabe. The Syberia series is great, but I hear the PS3 port is awful so I’ll rather play it on Steam. After the past few months, this truly is a letdown.

Welmosca said:

December 2nd, 11:43 pm

You’ve really done it this time around Sony.Darksiders 2 is an amazing game but its an amazing game on PS3 where it should have stayed (one of the best multiplat games on PS3) not as a recycled crap for PS4 and while Kung Fu Panda is one of the best animation movies ever…as a game it doesn’t do well lol.On the other hand Kung Fu Panda is a perfect game to have it for free and it looks kinda like Digimon Rumble Arena which was a lotta fun back on PS1.

So for PS4 a recycled game and a movie game…damn glad I don’t survive outta Plus games like some lame people here.

PS3 and Vita games don’t look that good either but will have to research them.

This time y’all whiners do have reason to complain…this is probably the worst PS4 lineup since its inception.

Ealaniel said:

December 3rd, 1:35 pm

Looks like some nice games – been considering to buy darksiders for a while but now I dont have to =) I bet the kids will like Kung Fu Panda, so thx Sony. For January, how about the last guardian? =) Merry X-mas.

Metpunk10201995 said:

December 3rd, 4:03 pm

I guess the question I shall ask is. What did everyone expect to see for December, specifically? What would have been acceptable in your eyes?

Mr_Insomniac731 said:

December 3rd, 6:19 pm

Where is the free games playstation are unbelievable as they have not updated it yet …..
microsoft has released there monthly games why can playstation do it to at the same time it is getting ridiculous how long sony take to update the monthly games

GirlofFlames said:

December 3rd, 7:52 pm

sorry if i sound like a sony fangirl but its not playstations fualt they cant give u great games every month for the simple reason they have to find game developers and asjk them if they can use it and give it away for free in there monthly lineup im sure if sony wanted to theyd give us playstation plus users better games and as for you who cry over pay to play online its not that big of a deal its 60 dollers for a full year youd think people would be more upset a controller cost more than a triple Atitled game that just got released withing the past 24 hours

ectoplasmicslug said:

December 4th, 12:25 am

Reading the comment section here helps me through hard times. It reminds me I could be a spoiled entitled brat that expects AAA games handed left and right and literally throws insults at people over TOYS. Stay classy, gamers.

spiritdave said:

So many ungrateful little children in here. PS Plus is an online service, for playing multiplayer games, uploading your saves to storage, synchronising your gameplay across devices etc. You do NOT pay for these games. They were once never part of the deal. Much like Xbox Live, the service’s games are additional and free. Stop complaining. The sheer and grotesque amount of entitlement shown here is embarrassing. What you little idiots don’t seem to realise is that Sony and Microsoft charge you literally a pittance for the service. $50 a year. A YEAR! Come on … stop being so goddamn greedy. It’s cringe-worthy. Grow up, get on with your lives, and stop acting like you deserve anything. You don’t. If you think fifty dollars a year is anything but a pittance, you should sell your games console because you’re clearly not in a position to afford the luxury.

Well looks like i am not downloading these crappy games ether,dam sony why is your ps plus free games crap?

clouded0ne said:

December 4th, 1:51 pm

Brand new PS4 owner and also PS Plus membership. Hoping not to get trolled for my ignorance on the matter. When are these titles actually available for free? I have PS Plus, however, when I attempt to download the titles they show up in my cart with a cost. Surely I’m doing something wrong, so any productive insight as to where/how to find the actual dates of availability or pointing me in the right direction in the event I am not following the proper protocol necessary to utilize the PS Plus free services. Thanks for your polite responses. Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and a merry Christmas!

    mattblood221 said:

    December 4th, 9:20 pm

    To find when they become free look at the PS plus & go to the free games part then click one of the games & it will show you when these ones become free

sweet_halo said:

December 4th, 3:21 pm

THIS IS BULL MANURE
And DARKSIDERS II, CRASHES PS4 SLIMS, this is just great for xmas. I already complained, called and sent emails to SONY and THQ and got no positives answers. All the possible troubleshooting did not work!!!
Would like to be surprised that the game actually worked for ps4 slim owners.
In the mean time they can duck themselves with this fracking scam

PS. If you own a PS4 slims and CrapSiders II work for you kindly let me know, I would appreciated dearly
PS2. SONY and THQ I hope you get a pair of socks for xmas or one of those ugly xmas-sweaters , may your path be full of legos

December 5th, 6:48 am

Woohoo darkpuzzle 2 a game so old it made it into every sale this year in single digits….the darksiders games were dope…YEARS AGO….can’t remember the last time someone was really excited for darksiders…kung fu panda ?? Really ?? …I guess it’s a bad play at the child market….this is the greedy Japanese corporate model at work here..you don’t have to buy battlefront to get screwed over..just look at this years backlog…you would think with Sony having a record year..they’d improve the quality of the games they dish out…before any of you squares come for me..you’re probably here complaining about free games because that’s all You have…my library is stocked…I’m posting an opinion because psn is just becoming a lynchpin for the in game online services it offers..not for being the independent entity that Sony wanted it to be…I just backlog and get on with my day because I know that is gonna be trash..but I subscribed…so I need all my free ish….lol..it’s not like we’re asking for monster hunter or COD or anything unreasonable for that matter…just better offerings than Sony has been giving

Is anyone else having an issue with the Until Dawn VR game? It’s showing at 20 bucks not free.

OrderlyWreckage said:

December 6th, 2:01 am

I love all the “Gamers” that are complaining about games being not worth a lot in the store like “Hey, the games you are offering are worth like $5, that’s BS for something i pay for”….Seriously guys…..3 games or so each month worth $5 each….Lets do the math…..$15 a month game value, 12 months a year, oh Jesus, would you look at that, $180 value a year….god it must be awful paying less than that each year for the sub, you have my upmost sympathy, how could a multinational corporation intent on making money do such a thing to us, its unforgivable saving us gamers money. FOR SHAME SONY, FOR SHAME. (For those of you that don’t get it, i’m mocking all the people complaining about value with sarcasm :D)

What’s the deal with this disappointing and unsatisfactory December line up? It’s Christmas and you give us worse games than all the months prior, wtf Sony?

KeiyarlaDraga said:

December 6th, 10:07 am

I have to admit, I would rather have the first Darksiders game listed instead of the second game, since I know that the first game is also on the PS4. Don’t get me wrong, I want to play both, but then again, I never played either one of the games. Then again, I would go read the lore just so I can get the entire picture and not wonder what the hell is going on.
