PlayStation Plus Free Games January 2018

New Year’s is upon us, and Sony has some great titles lined up for the PlayStation Plus Free Games January 2018 with a blend of triple-A titles and easy Platinums, to keep us busy over the holidays. The free games will be available on Tuesday, January 2.

For the PlayStation 4, there’s Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the 2016 cyberpunk first-person shooter where Adam Jensen uses his augmented abilities to stop a terrorist organization. And Batman: The Telltale Series, the point-and-click graphic adventure where a stolen encrypted data drive leads Batman on a spiral of trouble for both him and his alter ego Bruce Wayne.

On the PlayStation 3, there’s Sacred 3, the 2014 hack-and-slash where players select from a variety of classes and set out to defeat the oppressive ruler of Ashen Empire. And The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, a comical point-and-click fantasy adventure where a gnome, human, elf princess, and a strange creature must work together to defeat whatever magical force is turning castles into dollhouses.

And for the PlayStation Vita, there’s Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness, a visual novel set in a dystopian future Tokyo where a personality scanner known as the Psycho-Pass is able to predict the tendency of someone committing a crime. And Uncanny Valley, a survival-horror involving the exploration of an isolated facility. Both Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness and Uncanny Valley are cross-plat on the PlayStation 4.

In addition, PlayStation Plus members will also be able to get the PS VR title Starblood Arena for free. This game will remain a free download until March 6.

Among the PlayStation Plus Free Games January 2018, all titles have Platinum trophies to unlock, with the exception of Uncanny Valley. Of these, Batman: The Telltale Series is by far the easiest, since the Platinum is guaranteed simply for playing the game from beginning to end, which only takes roughly 8 hours. Also, both The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 and Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness are easy Platinums if following a guide, each requiring about 20 hours.

Meanwhile, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided shouldn’t prove too difficult for those who already experienced unlocking the Platinum in the prequel, requiring only a guide, some skills, and about 45 hours of your time. Also, unlocking 100% of the trophies on Uncanny Valley is not too difficult, and requires less than 8 hours of gameplay.

Sacred 3 however, has some online trophies which can be challenging and time consuming without boosting.
