Sony has revealed the games that PS Plus users can pick up for free in December. There are two PS4 games, two PS3 games, two PS Vita games and even some cool Warframe bonuses on offer this month. We've listed the free PlayStation Plus games for December below:
The first game up for grabs is Soma, the psychological horror game from Frictional Games. It's not one for the faint-hearted, but is well worth giving a try if you're a horror fan.
Next up is Onrush, the recent arcade racer from Codemasters. It's a racing game where coming first is not the objective. Instead, players earn points and climb the rankings by performing tricks, taking out others, and collecting pickups. It's a really solid racer, and should be well worth your time if you've enjoyed any of Codemasters' other racing games.
The first PS3 game on this list is Steredenn. It's a chaotic space shooter with crazy boss battles and vicious space-pirates.
Also on PS3 is Steinsgate. It's a visual novel made by the talented folks over at 5pb and Nitroplus.
The first Vita game on offer this month (it's also PS4 cross-buy) is Iconoclasts. It's a fantastic Metroidvania that is well worth checking out.
Finally, we have Papers, Please for PS Vita. The less you know about this game going in, the better. We won't spoil too much then, only that you are a border inspector in charge of letting people into the country. It's one of the best indie games ever created, and is short enough to be worth giving a fair shake.
On top of the great games offered this month there's also PS Plus exclusive Warframe bonuses to grab. PS Plus members who play Warframe will receive the Warframe: PlayStation Plus Booster Pack 3 with 100 Platinum, 100,000 Credits, Quanta (Corpus laser rifle), Quanta Obsidian Skin, 7-Day Affinity Booster, and a 7-Day Credit Booster.

Also up for grabs this month is God of War 3: Remastered. It'll be great for those who jumped into this year's game, but maybe didn't have much experience with what came before it. It's more of a hack and slash adventure game than God of War on PS4, but definitely still worth checking out.

Good news for PSVR owners this month, as psychological horror game Here They Lie is being given away free with PS Plus. It's a seriously mind-bending experience, one which makes full use of the PSVR's power. You'll want to turn off the lights, stick the phone on silent, and prepare yourself for some serious scares.

It's an open world crime thriller, with a great story which never shies away from the state of race relations in the period it's set.
Another game that PS Plus subscribers can pick up this month is Dead by Daylight. It's an asymmetrical multiplayer game, in which one player takes on the role of slasher movie murderer, and is tasked with hunting down the other players. There are killers based on Leatherface, Freddy Krueger, Jigsaw, Joker, and more. It's a great game to play with friends, or to buddy up with other players online. Definitely one for the horror fans out there.

In Draw Slaher, you play as a ninja named Hanzo, as he attempts to rescue his family from the grips of evil pirate monkey zombies. It's mostly touch-based experience, so you only really need one finger. Draw a line to jump, dash, dodge and slash.
