2017 is here! January brings us the first set of free games for PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold subscribers for the year. Let’s see what gamers will enjoy this month.
First, on PS4, we have Day of the Tentacle Remastered, which is an enhanced version of the 1993 classic point and click game. The other PS4 title is This War of Mine: The Little Ones, where you try to survive as a civilian in war time from the perspective of a child.
PS3 owners receive Blazerush, a top-down racing game with plenty of weapons and local multiplayer. The other PS3 title is The Swindle, a steampunk-inspired game where you must hack into randomly generated buildings’ security systems to rob all their cash.
Finally, Vita players will get Azkend 2, a match-three puzzle game, and Titan Souls, an action adventure game that’s made difficult since you can only take one hit and only have one arrow.
Per usual, Xbox One owners can enjoy the Xbox 360 titles via backwards compatibility.
Xbox One players will receive World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap, a tower-defense game with action RPG elements. The other XBO title is Killer Instinct Season 2 Ultra Edition, a content pack for the 2013 fighting game.
On Xbox One, The Cave, a puzzle-platformer adventure game from the creator of Monkey Island, is free. The other title is Rayman Origins, the phenomenal reboot of the classic 2D platformer franchise.
