PlayStation Plus January Games

It was announced on the 1st January 2020 that the following game would be coming to PlayStation Plus users:

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection

The Nathan Drake Collection is a remastered collection of the series' first three instalments and was ported to PlayStation 4 by Bluepoint Games in October 2015.


Uncharted is an action-adventure third-person shooter platform video game. In the main games, the series follows Nathan Drake, a treasure hunter who journeys across the world to uncover various historical mysteries.

Goat Simulator

Goat Simulator is a third-person perspective action video game developed and published by Coffee Stain Studios.

The player controls a goat aimed at doing as much damage as possible around an open-world map, without any other larger goals.

Honestly can't think of a better way to start 2020 than by playing through the Nathan Drake Collection tbh.Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Goat Simulator are your PS Plus January games.

Release Date

Traditionally, the PlayStation Plus games for the month are revealed on the last Wednesday of every month.


However, January 2020s games have been delayed because of the way the dates fall. The free PlayStation Plus games for January 2020 won't be revealed until 4.30 pm UK time on January 1.

The free games will be available to download less than a week later on Tuesday, January 7th 2020.



These predictions are the opinions of fans and web pages that they would either like to have or are predicting to see.

Star Wars Battlefront 2

Many fans have predicted that it will make its way to PlayStation Plus in January due to its rise in popularity, regular DLC and the fact that the new film (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) has recently released.


The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher TV show recently launched on Netflix - what better way to capitalise on its great success than making this game available to try?

You can imagine plenty of Netflix viewers watch via their PS4 and as it doesn't necessarily spend too much time explaining everything, it could be a good way to get fans into the franchise.

Watch Dogs 2

The unfortunate news emerged earlier in the year that Watch Dogs 3 has been delayed, it would be a good idea from Ubisoft to keep player ticking over with an opportunity to play the most recent game in the franchise.

Bioshock: The Collection

News came out of 2K Games that a new Bioshock is in the making, however, it will be a number of years before we see it - could we get a chance to play the classics?


Far Cry Primal

The 2016 game could be a good opportunity to promote Far Cry: New Dawn, which seemed to be underwhelmingly marketed and released at the start of this year.


What Came In December 2019?

Titanfall 2

Titanfall 2 is a first-person shooter video game, set in a science-fiction universe, developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts.

A sequel to 2014's Titanfall, players control Titans, mecha-style exoskeletons and their pilots, who are agile and equipped with a variety of skills ranging from wall-running to cloaking.


The single-player campaign follows the story of Jack Cooper, a rifleman from the Frontier Militia, who bonds with his mentor's Titan BT-7274 after his mentor is killed. Together, they embark on a quest to stop the Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC) from launching a superweapon that is threatening to destroy the Militia planet Harmony.

The multiplayer mode sees the return of Titanfall's Titan meter, which fills slowly when the player is playing the game. It fills faster when the player kills an opponent, inflicts damage on enemies, or completes the map's objectives such as capturing points in the Hardpoint game mode. When the meter is completely filled, the player can summon their selected Titan, which descends from the sky in a titular titanfall deployment.

Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Video Game

Monster Energy Supercross gives players the opportunity to take part in the most competitive and highest-profile off-road motorcycle racing championship in the world.

Featuring innovative track designs and set inside recognizable and prestigious stadiums, the game is a realistic and immersive Supercross fan experience.

Players will race with their favourite Supercross athletes on tracks from the 2017 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship season
