Mid-Month PS Plus Update

Great news! Firewall Zero Hour will be free to play for active PS Plus members this weekend: January 18 – 20!

The Firewall Zero Hour: Weekend Trial Demo will include all the pulse-pounding modes of the full game (Single Player Training – Player vs. AI, Multiplayer Training – Co-op vs AI, and Multiplayer Contracts – PVP Players vs Players), as well as the entire roster of maps in the game, including the newly added map, Containment!*

Any XP/Crypto you earn in-game during the Weekend Trial Demo will carry over to the main game upon purchase of Firewall Zero Hour at PlayStation Store. Trophies, however, will not.

*Paid Firewall Zero Hour DLC items not available to Weekend Trial Demo players.

Greetings PlayStation Nation! Let’s take a quick look at the free games for January, which will be available January 1, 2019 to February 5, 2019.

First up, we have Steep. The mountain is yours to explore in this massive open world sports game. Drop in to the most epic mountains, and ski, wingsuit, snowboard, and paraglide your way to victory. This game is for those looking for a little excitement this winter season.

Next up, we have Portal Knights. Step into the fantastic and unknown in the delightful action-RPG. You can explore alone or team up with up to three other friends in cooperative multiplayer*. This is a delightful romp of a game that is sure to please many of you.

This month’s PlayStation Plus lineup also includes:

And as a reminder for those Warframe players, Digital Extremes’ dev team has you covered! The Warframe: PlayStation Plus Booster Pack III has a little bit of everything to jump start your game. This includes 100 Platinum, 100,000 Credits, Quanta (a Corpus laser rifle), Quanta Obsidian Skin, 7-Day Affinity Booster, and a 7-Day Credit Booster. PS Plus members can get the pack for free from now until January 15, 2019.

And that’s it! See you next month!

*Internet connection and PS Plus membership required to access online multiplayer.

Thanks for the latest games. I am especially excited about Amplitude as I am a fan of later games by Harmonix. Normally, Playstation Plus gives the cross-platform games for free, but I noticed that “Super Mutant Alien Assault” is only available on Vita. I don’t have a Vita but do own a PS4 and would like to try the game. Is it possible to include the PS4 version as well?

Nothing for me this time :( But I can understand that Steep may appeal to large young audience that just got PS4 as holiday gift as it looks…. pretty cool. Keeping fingers for something down my alley next month.

I only pay for plus for the games and maybe play online once a year a few times. Everyone has different reasons for getting the service. Certainly not worth it for me when the games are bad or forced online multiplayer games. I hope they do get better when ps3 games are discontinued. The free games quote is a gimmick so consumers think they are getting a better deal. Reality is they are only rentals you lose if you end plus or your internet is off that day. To be more worth it, they need to make a way to purchase discount games that we’re free with plus in our libraries so we can actually own the game not rent. The free games and greatly discounted games are what make it worth it for me

    Same here. I ended up logging in to the PlayStation store through a desktop and made the purchase that way. When the transaction is complete, it gets added to your downloads. Go back to your PS3 downloads list and install from there.

Smh, these games are getting worse every month. What happened to the good popular games you used to give out Sony? In the past it used to be one Triple-A Game and a couple B-Grade Games…Now it seems it’s just B-Grade crap…

Last few months all the PS4 free games were so average. Nothing truly good.

as i understand they want you to pay a subscription fee a month to play free games with of also having PlayStation plus. because i did want to check out steep but for free. but i dont think its worth buying a game that could do in real life. so is this like false advertising? i heard Nintendo doing something like this like having there customers pay a month fee to play a bunch of games for free for a limited time. but you could just pay one subscription for the house hold if you had a few Nintendo consoles. i just dont like seeing FREE in big letters and finding out its really not.:(
