Each month PlayStation has a lineup of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers to enjoy. The games that will be on the PS4 next month to ring in the new year have been revealed slightly ahead of their availability date. According to PlayStation Blog’s announcement today, Day of the Tentacle Remastered and This War of Mine: The Little Ones will be available for PS Plus subscribers coming this January.
Day of the Tentacle Remastered was originally released back in 1993, so it will be a great opportunity for longtime fans to once again experience this “mind-bending, time traveling, puzzle adventure”. The games features three unlikely friends who must work together in order to “prevent an evil mutated purple tentacle from taking over the world”. Day of the Tentacle will also be available on the PlayStation Vita via cross-buy.
This War of Mine: The Little Ones takes on a more serious tone. The game features a group of civilians who are trying to survive while their city is under siege, making the task of gathering food and medicine that much more difficult in the midst of war. If that premise weren’t heavy enough, This War of Mine also puts the power of choice in the players’ hands, as you have to make life-and-death decisions which are “driven by your conscience”.
Where the PlayStation Vita is concerned, users will be able to download and play Azkend 2 and Titan Souls for free. If you missed out on the PS Plus lineup of free games for December, there is still time to get them, and this month includes titles such as Stories: The Path of Destinies.
Below is the complete line-up of games that we can expect for PlayStation Plus in January:
Azkennd 2 (PS Vita)
Day of the Tentacle Remastered (Cross buy PS Vita)
The Swindle (PS3 and Cross Buy on PS4 and Vita)
Titan Souls (PS Vita and Cross Buy on PS4)
