New year, new games: In line with the first day in 2020, Sony today announced the new free games for PS Plus members. To celebrate the day there are not two games as usual, but four in total!

Usually the PS Plus games always around 5:30 p.m. officially announced. As other German gaming sites report, there seems to have been a leak on PlayStation's German YouTube channel today: the video for the new games went online a few hours earlier. The clip has since been deleted, but it is already known which games will be free for PS Plus members in January 2020.

As always, the new free games are not available immediately, but only from January 7, 2020 (the first Tuesday of the new month). Until then, you can treat yourself to the two free games from December 2019: Titan case 2 and Monster Energy Supercross,

You are not yet a member of PS Plus, but find the new games so interesting that you really want to secure them? In the PlayStation Store you can become a member – a month currently costs 8.99 euros.

These are the PS Plus games in January 2020:

Here are the four new games in action:

That's what it's all about:

With Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, you have three games in one at once. The collection consists of the first three parts of the action adventure series. Only Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is not included. In the Nathan Drake Collection, all games have not only been visually pretted, you also get two additional levels of difficulty and more.

The fourth game that will be free with PS Plus in January 2020 is the fun Goat Simulator. What sounds like a dry simulation is the opportunity to create an incredible amount of chaos – with a devilish goat that simply cannot be stopped. Perfect for those who just want to see the world burn.

How good were the PS Plus games in the old year?

A total of 32 games have become popular among PS Plus 2019. However, this is significantly less than in 2018. Finally, games for the PS3 and PS Vita were only given away in January and February 2019. In the following months only PS4 possessions got their money's worth. In return, Sony promised that the quality of the games offered should increase.

For an overview, here are all the games that you could secure as a PS Plus subscriber in 2019 for free.


  • Amplitude (PS3)
  • Fallen Legion: Flames of Rebellion (PS Vita)
  • Portal Knights (PS4)
  • Steep (PS4)
  • Super Mutant Alien Assault (PS Vita)
  • Zone of the Enders HD Collection (PS3)












  • Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Videogame
  • Titan case 2

Overall, Sony has shown class rather than mass. The abandonment of the less popular games for the PS Vita and PS3 has paid off in that the average metascore of all games offered in 2019 climbed to 77 is how polygon calculated, In 2018 there were 69.

By the way, all the games you could get this year had a total value of $ 894.68, so about 807.50 euros, Measured by the annual premium for PS Plus, which is currently just under 60 euros, without question an extraordinarily good offer.

What is PlayStation Plus?

To play online, you need a PlayStation Plus subscription for the PlayStation 4. This enables you to use the multiplayer mode of most games and provides you with cloud storage for save games and other things. In addition, you get special offers that only members receive and ultimately two free games a month.
