PlayStation Plus Gets BioShock Infinite, Don’t Starve In JanuaryBy: Zach Walton - December 26, 2013
It’s the day after Christmas, and you’re already downloading all the free games you can get from PlayStation Plus after your parents, friends or significant other purchased a year’s subscription to PlayStation Plus for you. While there’s plenty of great content to be had on the service already, January is going to be a stellar debut for PlayStation Plus in 2014.
Sony announced today that a total of six games will be hitting PlayStation Plus in January across the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. Starting with PS4, indie survival game Don’t Starve will debut on PS4 and be free right out of the gate for PlayStation Plus subscribers. So, what’s it about? Here’s the official synopsis from Sony:
Don’t Starve: Console Edition is an uncompromising wilderness survival game full of science and magic. You play as Wilson, an intrepid Gentleman Scientist who has been trapped by a demon and transported to a mysterious wilderness world. Wilson must learn to exploit his environment and its inhabitants if he ever hopes to escape and find his way back home.
If brutal survival games aren’t really your thing, you still have plenty of other options on PS3 and PS Vita. For PlayStation 3, BioShock Infinite, DMC Devil May Cry and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons will all go free during the month of January. All three are fantastic titles that any PlayStation 3 owner should pick up.
As for PlayStation Vita, those hoping for something a little more exciting might be a little let down. The handheld is getting brain trainer Smart as… and lumbricid combat sim Worms: Battle Islands. Both games should provide gamers with something a little different from the norm, but those waiting for Persona 4 Golden to go free will have to keep waiting.
