January Gaming Deals & Freebees

January is here. Well obviously, we had that whole “everybody gets drunk” thing the other day. Anyway we are getting distracted. A new month means new free games! So let’s start with things on with the blue team and talk PS4.

Playstation Plus members this month you are entitled Dragon Age Origins on the PS3, Grim Fandango Remastered on the PS4 and PS Vita, Hardware: Rivals on the PS4, Legends of War Patton on the PS Vita, Medal of Honor Warfighter on the PS3, and finally Nihilumbra on the PS Vita. All these games will be available from the 5th of January on the PS Store. A personal recommendation is Grim Fandango. I loved this game when it first came out in the 90’s and bought the remaster when it came out last February.  Also note with all PS Plus freebies you only have to add it to your library and it is yours to keep for the length of your subscription; you don’t need to download it straight away.

Over on team Green, Xbox gamers will be able to download Killer Instinct Ultra Edition for Xbox One (for the entire month), Thief for Xbox One (Until the 15th of Jan), Dirt Showdown for Xbox 360 (until the 15th) and finally Deus Ex Human Revolution for the 360 (from the 16th until the end of the month).  Now remember you don’t have download these games straight away, just add the game to your library, and unlike on Playstation once these are in your library they are yours forever.

Don’t forget that every Xbox 360 game going forward in Games with Gold will be backwards compatible on the Xbox One.

PC gamers don’t fret, I haven’t forgotten you guys! Over on Origin from EA you can download Jade Empire right now. This is the Bioware RPG game that they released after the much loved Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic. Definitely give this often overlooked title a crack.

That’s it for the first month of 2016! If you have any hot tips relating other freebies or deals leave them in the comments below so everyone can get in on the action.
