After a quiet December, PlayStation Plus Members have a much fuller January of free games, which is nice to see from Sony. It feels like it's been quite a few months since we've had good games offered.
Here are your free games for the month of January:
- A Plague Tale: Requiem
- Evil West
- Nobody Saves the World
First up is A Plague Tale: Requiem, the sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence, which was a PS Plus offering back in June 2021. It's nice to see the sequel offered as a free game, especially if you played through the first one two years ago and have been holding out hope it would show up.
This sequel follow Amicia and Hugo after they've escaped their home and are heading south. Unfortunately Hugo's powers return and devouring rats. It's an incredibly impressive sequel that ramps everything up even more than the first game. However, there's not too much that sets the gameplay apart from its predecessor.
Still, if you liked the first game, you'll love A Plague Tale: Requiem.
Evil West is the closest you can get to playing an old-school PS3 game set on a modern day console. That's not at all a bad thing, and this throwback western shooter is as much fun as it looks.
You play as an agent of the last-standing (and top secret) vampire hunting agency in the west, taking on new monstrosities that keep cropping up. The story doesn't get overly complicated, and the best part about this game is the amount of absolutely ridiculous weapons you get to take on enemies that don't vary that much. It's a very linear game, too, there's not a lot of exploration or overthinking.
Last up is Nobody Saves the World, a cute-looking RPG. You play as Nobody, who has to take on different forms in order to try to save the world, including a slug, a ghost, a dragon, and more. The game isn't terribly long, clocking in at about seventeen hours, and gives you a fun dungeon crawler kind of format.
Your PlayStation Plus January games are available to download beginning Tuesday, January 2nd.
