Here’s the full rundown on the free PlayStation Plus games for January 2018.
The first free PlayStation Plus games of 2018 have been revealed, and they are a huge improvement on last month’s disappointing lineup.
The pick of the bunch is Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Eidos Montreal’s underrated mash-up of the first-person action, stealth, and RPG genres.
Also coming to PlayStation 4 is the first season of Batman: The Telltale Series. The game is a little rough around the edges – and its story does flounder in later episodes – but it’s an interesting and fresh take on DC’s most familiar superhero.
Elsewhere, the venerable PlayStation 3 gets Sacred 3, and The Book of Unwritten Tales 2. And the PS Vita gets Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness, and Uncanny Valley.
Next month’s PlayStation Plus bonuses are a free download of PS VR arena combat game Starblood Arena, and a Warframe Booster Pack bundle that includes 100 Platinum, 50,000 Credits, plus various other items and perks.
January’s PlayStation Plus games will be available from Tuesday January 2, 2018.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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! 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.
