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.
