We’re already a month into 2018! That means it’s time for a fresh wave of free games for PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Here are the new games you can look forward to playing soon.
The first free Xbox One title is Shadow Warrior. This ninja-themed first-person shooter is a reboot of the 1997 original. Also on Xbox One is Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India. Unlike the mainline Assassin’s Creed games, this one is a 2.5D stealth-action platformer.
On Xbox 360, you can download Split/Second. This action arcade racer takes place in a reality TV show, and features intense battles with other racers. Also on Xbox 360 is Crazy Taxi, a port of the arcade and Dreamcast classic. It’s an open-world racing game that tasks you with driving customers to their destinations as wildly as possible.
Don’t forget that you can play both Xbox 360 games on your Xbox One thanks to backwards compatibility.
On PS4, Sony is finally releasing Knack as a free title. This PS4 launch title is a simple, kid-friendly platformer that’s perfectly mediocre. It’s become a meme in the YouTube community thanks to VideogameDunkey. The other free PS4 game is Rime, an adventure puzzle game where you must explore a mysterious island.
PS3 players will receive Spelunker HD, an enhanced remake of the NES classic Spelunker. It’s a tough platforming challenge where you must explore a cave to find treasure. Also on PS3 is Mugen Souls Z, a Japanese RPG with an anime theme.
Finally, PS Vita players can play Exile’s End, a so-so Metroidvania action platformer. Grand Kingdom, a tactical RPG with plenty to offer, rounds out the offers this month. It’s also available on PS4 thanks to Cross-Buy.
Don’t forget that until March 6, PS Plus members can also download the PS VR title Starblood Arena [No Longer Available] free.
