December's PlayStation Plus games have been revealed and the list includes Frictional Games' mind-bending horror game, Soma.
Frictional is best known for spawning a million YouTube reaction videos thanks to Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Frictional passed on sequel duties to The Chinese Room who developed the under-appreciated Amnesia: Machine for Pigs to work on Soma, a new horror game that travels into the future to examine the horrors of human consciousness.
Frictional released Safe Mode as a free update that lets players play the entire game without the fear of a game over. It's still a terrifying experience but for players who can't nerve themselves to complete the game using combat, there's an option to play the game just to enjoy the story. I highly recommend doing so as it's worth the journey.
The next PlayStation Plus game for PS4 in December is Onrush, a gravity-defying racing game developed by the racing gurus at Codemasters. Reception to Onrush has been very positive and if you're a fan of Codemasters' previous racing games you'll definitely want to check out Onrush.
Other PlayStation Plus games for the month include:
- Steredenn – PS3
- Steinsgate – PS3
- Iconoclasts – PS Vita (PS4 Cross Buy)
- Papers, Please – PS Vita
In addition, 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.
Remember that in March 2019 PS Vita games will no longer be offered as part of PS Plus.
