With such a lineup, January will be an incredible month to game! Mankind Divided is such a fun game. Telltale plays with the Batman franchise with such freedom and creative fun! Sacred is just plain-old fun! Let’s not forget about Psycho-Pass, with a world that is (for me) really reminiscent of Minority Report and is a good game for fan of SCI-FI! Overall, I am impressed and is again a really proud subscriber of PS Plus! Are you happy with this selection? Let us know what you think in the comments.
