The first selection of free PlayStation games for 2019 includes some snowboarding, some questing, and a set of mech classics.
Questing through the snow
At first glance, I thought this month might be kind of a throwaway for those looking forward to PlayStation freebies. Honestly though, it’s actually kind of cool. And I don’t mean that in a punny way.
Steep leads the charge in January of 2019, and is one of the more interesting looking snowboarding games to hit in some time. Actually, it’s also the only snowboarding game to hit in some time. I think. Anyway, it’s one of those games that I keep meaning to try and never do, so I’m excited.
Right there with Steep is Portal Knights. This action-RPG sports four player co-op, and has a weird mix of detailed graphics and cartoony aesthetic. It kind of works though.
After the PS4 titles above, the list falls apart a bit, though there is one big PS3 standout. That’s the Zone of the Enders HD Collection. If you didn’t play any of these, they’re PS2 titles that were revamped for the PS3 some time ago (obviously). Think kind of “out there”, Eastern mech action and you’ve got a vague idea of what ZoE offers.
Here’s the full list of what’s available to play for free in January.
- Portal Knights
- Zone of the Enders HD Collection
- Fallen Legion (cross buy with PS4)
- Super Mutant Alien Assault
