The free PS Plus games for February 2019 are bringing along some long-awaited (in a good and bad sense) changes to the overall program. First up, you can look forward to playing through both Hitman and For Honor on PS4 as part of your subscription. But, as Sony already announced, February's also the final month for free PS3 and PS Vita games. Every game you've claimed for the consoles will remain accessible in your library as long as you're a PS Plus member, but no further PS3 or PS Vita games will be added after the next lineup goes live on February 5. It's been a good eight-plus year run for free PS3 games.
It isn't all reductions, though! Sony's giving PS Plus members ten times as much cloud storage space starting in early February. That's a total of 100GB of space for your saves, which is room for a whole lot of Skyrim characters who you swear will be different this time but all end up stealth archers.
February 2019 free PS Plus games
Hitman: The Complete First Season (PS4): One of the best game of 2016 is now free with PlayStation Plus. The new Hitman started an assassination renaissance, bringing together excellent levels and many of same mechanics you can enjoy in Hitman 2.
For Honor (PS4): Ubisoft's online multiplayer melee combat game has changed and grown quite a bit since it first came out in February 2017, but it all still hinges on the headgames and counterplay of its clever directional dueling system.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3): The end of Solid Snake's story is a fitting swan song for the PlayStation 3 Instant Game Collection. Synchronicity aside, Metal Gear Solid 4 is a bizarre, beautiful trip.
Gunhouse (PS4, PS Vita): Tower defense on one side of the screen is powered by match-3 puzzling on the other side, as pastel weirdos desperately try to breach your cartoon gun defenses.
Rogue Aces (PS4, PS Vita): Y'got your side-on aerial dogfights and acrobatics across procedurally generated sorties full of all kinds of stuff to blow up. It's like Wings of Fury or Luftrausers but with more pixels.
Divekick (PS3, PS Vita): This smart distillation of fighting games has only two buttons: one to jump, and one to kick. It's also jam-packed with circa-2013 inside jokes from the Fighting Game Community, so there's that.
