The Best Survival Horror Game Ever Made Joins PlayStation Plus This Month

In 2019, Capcom blew our minds with a brutal remake of 1998’s Resident Evil 2, this time with a new camera perspective, modern graphics, and the return of two classic horror protagonists: Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield. Starting on January 16, you’ll be able to download this incredible remake as a part of your PlayStation Plus Premium and Extra subscriptions.

Of course that’s not all that’s coming to the catalog this month. If horror doesn’t float your boat, this month also features an explosive open world game, a Borderlands spin-off, and some JRPG additions to the classics catalog.

Resident Evil 2 (PS5, PS4)

There’s no doubt that the Resident Evil 2 remake is time well spent, though it makes for a very different experience from the late ‘90s original. In our review of the Resident Evil 2 remake, former Kotaku writer Heather Alexandra said:

Just Cause 3 (PS4)

If you want to cause absolute, spectacular levels of explosive destruction to liberate a people from an oppressive dictator, Just Cause 3 is here to provide. Taking on the role of Rico Rodriguez, this open-world game gives you GTA-level shenanigans, but with a much larger world and way more explosions. But while the destruction of almost everything you can think of sure is fun, Just Cause 3’s use of its wingsuit adds a stunning flight experience of the kind few open world games can lay claim to.

In our review of Just Cause 3, former Kotaku writer Kirk Hamilton said:

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands – Next Level Edition (PS5, PS4)

This D&D-inspired spinoff from the Borderlands series stars one of its most manic characters, Tiny Tina. Featuring a complete class system that you can multiclass across various skill trees, the game also offers four-player couch and online co-op.

Hardspace: Shipbreaker (PS5)

Set in a disturbing future guided by the uncontrolled greed of corporations in space, Hardspace: Shipbreaker packages a dystopian science fiction narrative into a robust physics simulation. As a shipbreaker, you’re tasked with breaking down out-of-commission spaceships to bring in the credits and salvage as many raw materials as you can.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong (PS5, PS4)

In Kotaku’s impressions of Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, I found the story adventure game to be a wonderful adaptation of the classic tabletop roleplaying game. While it can be a little wonky from time-to-time, it’s time well spent in this dark fantasy world.

Other catalog additions

That’s not all PlayStation Plus has to offer this month. Details for each game can be found on Sony’s official blog. Other PlayStation Plus catalog additions this month include:

LEGO City Undercover (PS4)Session: Skate Sim (PS5, PS4)Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun (PS4)Surviving the Aftermath (PS4)
