In addition to the regular raft of PlayStation Plus games for February 2019, Sony is also giving away a cloud storage upgrade.
From early February – exact date to be confirmed – Sony will be increasing the PS4 cloud save capacity for PlayStation Plus members tenfold. That will take the storage limit from 10GB to 100GB, which brings it more in line with the sorts of storage space we’re used to in the age of OneDrive, Google Drive, and Dropbox.
But that’s not all. PlayStation Plus February 2019 games will soon be available to download.
For the PS4, that’s Ubisoft’s martial arts adventure, For Honor, and the complete first season of IO Interactive’s splendid Hitman reboot. Both those games will be available to download on your PlayStation 4 from February 5th, right through until March 5th, when the new raft of games will be made available.
As for the PS3 and PS Vita freebies? Well, this is the last month you’ll receive games for either of these platforms via the PlayStation Plus program. As something of a final hurrah, you’ll get a few extra days to enjoy these games – through until March 8th – before PS3 and PS Vita games are lost to the monthly PlayStation Plus free games forever.
Here’s the full list of games available this month:
- For Honor (PS4)
- Hitman (PS4)
- Divekick (PS3, PS Vita)
- Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3)
- Gunhouse (PS4, PS Vita)
- Rogue Aces (PS4, PS Vita)
Don’t forget that January’s games – including the splendid snowscape, Steep – will still be available for a few more days.
As for what happens when the PS3 and PS Vita games drop out of PlayStation Plus; will we get more games for the PlayStation 4 in return? We don’t really know at this stage, but we’ll find out in a month’s time.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
