The free PlayStation Plus games for December 2018 have been revealed.
This new batch of games for PlayStation Plus subscribers was announced via the PlayStation Blog, and fans of racing, horror, platforming, or indie games will probably find something to love. The most high profile game on the list is probably SOMA, from Amnesia: The Dark Descent developer Frictional Games. SOMA is a sci-fi horror game that courts themes of identity, the meaning of humanity, and isolation.
“Whereas a fantasy-style horror is more common in the genre of late, SOMA is firmly rooted in the sci-fi realm with a heavy dose of philosophy, examining the ethos surrounding the marriage of humanity and technology,” said OnlySP’s James Schumacher. “It’s different, which is good, but it may not do quite enough to separate itself from the pack. The suspense and horror the game creates is real until players realize there isn’t much in the way of challenge when it comes to puzzles, and the penalties for being caught have no real weight.”
Made by racing specialists Codemasters, Onrush is a fast-paced, vehicular combat action game. The developers promise a return to golden age of arcade style racing, sensational speed, fun, and over-the-top spectacle. Iconoclasts is a highly rated action-adventure platformer with a beautiful retro graphics, puzzles and screen-filling bosses.

- Steredenn, PS3
- Steinsgate, PS3
- Iconoclasts, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
- Papers, Please, PS Vita
