PlayStation Plus January 2020 Lineup: We didn't see this coming

By Sohrab Khan 02 Jan, 20



Wow, 2020 is here. The year that is set to bring us The Last of Us Part 2, Resident Evil 3, and two brand new generations of consoles. Certainly, there is quite a lot of excitement to look forward to. Naturally, we would expect the same from the lineup of PS Plus for this month as well, right? Well, this time around, it is seemingly a disappoint to many, but to gamers like myself, it is actually a blessing in disguise.

PS Plus January Free Games


The title that is worthy of our attention in the January lineup is Uncharted: Nathan Drake’s Collection. For those who may have played Uncharted 4 or Lost Legacy, this month will allow you to play the first three editions of uncharted, all packed in a remastered package deal. 

Dive into the world of Nathan Drake, a treasure hunter, and explorer, as he discovers treasures of the lost cities. Navigate through insane settings to find El Dorado (Uncharted), Shambala (Uncharted 2) and some town I have forgotten (Uncharted 3). The games are absolutely worth a play and should provide sheer entertainment value for a very long time.

UNCHARTED: The Nathan Drake Collection (10/9/2015) - Story Trailer | PS4



If for some reason, you have been living under a rock and never had the chance to play this game, you have missed out on one of the greatest franchises in the history of the business. Now, you are all set to get this free within a few days. Grab your copy and find out just why this game is so loved. 

Now for the twist; Goat Simulator. I am not joking! For those who may be like “What?” I highly recommend to hold your horses, or goat in this matter, and hear me out. 

The Goat Simulator went out to win some of the industry’s most respected accolades. I have played it on my phone once, and I was in for a surprise. The game pitches you as a goat, and you get to create a chaos of unimaginable intensity.

Goat Simulator - Launch Trailer | PS4


Ram into the running citizens, jump trampolines and fly across the city doing stunts; it is virtually the sandbox of a lifetime. It is well worth the money (Yes, I paid) and will provide you with an unlimited source of fun. You do not need a walkthrough either. Play it the way you prefer and find out just why this game went on to garner such success. 

Well, folks, that is a wrap for PS Plus January 2020 lineup. To be honest, I am rather thrilled, though I admit that the first lineup for the year could have been a lot better. Perhaps Uncharted with, oh, I don’t know, RE2 maybe? Or Witcher would have done nicely too, considering that Netflix just aired a season for the same as well. 

Anyways, the decision-makers have chosen, and I am okay with the offerings. Do let us know what you think about the lineup in the comments below. Till the next time!
