Another month means another round of freebies for PlayStation Plus subscribers. January in particular signals a new year for PlayStation owners, and Sony is kicking things off with a handful of games that may or may not excite them. The latest batch of free PlayStation Plus games will be available from January 1, 2019 to February 5, 2019 and it consists of Steep, Portal Knight, Zone of the Enders HD Collection, Amplitude, Fallen Legion: Flames of Rebellion, and Super Mutant Alien Assault.
These titles are present across PS4, PS3, and PS Vita platforms, ensuring that consumers are looked after across a wide range of Sony consoles. The offering overall is “meh,” but there is value in what’s being given away in January 2019. Despite being lackluster, it can be argued that it’s still better than December 2018’s PlayStation Plus lineup – thanks to Steep.

JANUARY 2019 FREE PS PLUS GAMES: PLAYSTATION 4
Steep is the highlight of January 2019’s PlayStation Plus games, partially because it ties into the winter season so well. Developed by Ubisoft, this is a fun snowboarding romp that allows players to carve up the slopes and even take to the skies with a wingsuit. It makes for a fun addition to anyone’s PlayStation 4 library.
Also available on the platform is Portal Knights. Classified as an action-RPG, the focus of this title is four-player fun as a group of players team up to take out enemies and craft items. It’s convenient that a PlayStation Plus membership is required for online play because users will need it to play online, and since it’s free to download this month there should be no shortage of friends available to join in on the action.
JANUARY 2019 FREE PS PLUS GAMES: PLAYSTATION 3
Zone of the Enders HD Collection and Amplitude round out what’s being offered to PS3 owners through PlayStation Plus in January. The former is a complete remaster of one of the most iconic games in Konami’s library, featuring giant mechs and intense battles. Meanwhile, Amplitude (which is developed by Rock Band studio Harmonix) is a single-player rhythm title that puts music at the forefront of the experience. It includes tunes from composers like Darren Korb (Transistor), C418 (Minecraft), Danny Baranowsky (Crypt of the Necrodancer), Insomniac Games, Freezepop, Kickstarter backers, and Harmonix’s in-house composers.
JANUARY 2019 FREE PS PLUS GAMES: PLAYSTATION VITA
Finally, Super Mutant Alien Assault and Fallen Legion: Flames of Rebellion are arriving as freebies for PlayStation Vita owners. The first game is a single-player experience that tasks users with saving the human race in a side-scrolling platformer/shooter. Fallen Legion, on the other hand, is a Cross Buy game that PlayStation 4 owners can also download and enjoy. The title is an RPG, allowing users to explore a brand new world where decisions are said to impact the in-game lives of everyone around them.
These games will appeal to new PlayStation 4 owners that only just got their consoles during the holiday season, although the range of software isn’t as appealing as November 2018’s PlayStation Plus offering. Sony also wants Warframe fans to know that they can secure the Warframe: PlayStation Plus Booster Pack III until January 15, 2019. This comes with 100 Platinum, 100,000 Credits, Quanta (a Corpus laser rifle), Quanta Obsidian Skin, 7-Day Affinity Booster, and a 7-Day Credit Booster to add further value to the PlayStation Plus membership.
