December is almost here, which means PlayStation Plus members will soon get a new batch of PS4, PS3, and PS Vita games they can download for free. Sony has just announced the PS Plus lineup for December, and it’s a good one. Let’s take a look at what games you’ll be able to grab for free between December 4 and January 1.
For one, PS4 owners will be able to pick up Soma, a sci-fi horror game set in a research facility at the bottom of the ocean. But unlike many creepy games that mainly offer jump scares, this one actually has something to say. In our 9/10 Soma review, Richard Wakeling called Soma “an intelligent game that forced me to think and contemplate ideas as only the best sci-fi is capable of doing.”
Also free on PS4 is Onrush, an online team racing game that has a lot more going on than just rushing to the finish line. Using influences ranging from Burnout’s takedown mechanic to Overwatch’s hero abilities, “Onrush is such a bold, refreshing twist on the genre,” according to our 9/10 review.
Meanwhile, PS3 owners will be able to pick up the space shooter Steredenn and the mind-bending visual novel SteinsGate. The free PS Vita games for December are the Metroidvania-inspired Iconoclasts (also playable on PS4), and the indie gem Papers, Please.
If you hurry, you can still grab November’s PS Plus games, which include Yakuza Kiwami and Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition on PS4, Jackbox Party Pack 2 and Arkedo Series on PS3, and Burly Men at Sea and Roundabout on PS Vita.
As always, you’ll have access to the games you add to your account as long as you have a current PS Plus subscription.
