PlayStation Plus games for January 2019 led by Steep

The snowboarding game leads the pack for the year’s first set of games

Sony revealed January 2019’s set of games for PlayStation Plus subscribers, including Ubisoft’s open-world winter sports game Steep.

Steep is an appropriate game for the wintry months that kick off the year; players can ride snowboards and skis, and even fly paragliders. One of the recent updates included Winter Olympic content.

For something a little warmer, Portal Knights is also available for PS4 owners with PlayStation Plus memberships. It’s another sandbox-style action game that launched in 2017 on consoles, after an early access release in 2016.

The PlayStation 3 games are particularly impressive. They are Zone of the Enders HD Collection, compiling the mech-action games produced by Metal Gear’s Hideo Kojima, and Harmonix’s rhythm game Amplitude. Subscribers can also get Fallen Legion: Flames of Rebellion and Super Mutant Alien Assault on PlayStation Vita.

The company previously announced that it will phase out PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita games from the program after February 2019. January’s options are a nice capper, at least on the PS3 front.

December’s PS Plus offerings, including the excellent Soma, are still available to subscribers; read more about them and the rest of the 2018 slate in our rundown of the year in PlayStation Plus games.
