Sony has announced the six new games coming to PlayStation Plus in December.
Following on from this week’s Xbox Games with Gold announcement, comes news of December’s PS Plus games.
Soma, the acclaimed survival horror adventure from Frictional Games, leads the PlayStation 4 lineup. It’s joined by Onrush, an enjoyable combat racing game from Codemasters that was somewhat overlooked on its initial release in June.
Coming to PS Vita – and PS4 via Cross Play – is Iconoclasts. Joakim Sandberg’s game is a bold and intricate platformer with a memorable world to explore, and some truly cunning bosses to defeat. It’s our PS Plus pick of the month.
PS Vita owners also get Lucas Pope’s thought-provoking – and often panic inducing – tale of morality, empathy, and bureaucracy, Papers, Please.
All six games will be available to download from December 4, 2018. Here’s the full lineup.
PlayStation Plus free games – December 2018
- Iconoclasts (and PS4)
- Papers, Please
November’s lineup of PS Plus games remain available to download until December 3, and includes Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, Yakuza Kiwami, and Burly Men At Sea.

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.
