PlayStation Plus February 2017: these are the free games you can get this month


One of the biggest perks of being a PlayStation Plus subscriber is each month you’re given a range of free games across the PS4, PS4 Pro, PS3, and PS Vita platforms. This is a great way to try games you might not otherwise have played, whether because it’s indie titles that slip under your radar or simply because you don’t have the funds available to buy several games a month.

Even if you don’t plan to play them straight away, or you’re not sure they’re you’re kind of game, we’d say it’s always worth claiming them while you can get them for free. 

You’ll then have access to them for as long as you have an active PS Plus account. 

Since this is a monthly event, we’ve decided to create a one-stop shop where you’ll be able to find the newest free games, as well as scroll back and see what games were featured in previous months. That way you’ll know whether it’s worth holding out for a game to appear in an upcoming PlayStation Plus haul or if it has already been offered. 

So without further ado, here are the free PlayStation Plus games in North America, Europe, and Australia for February 2017, which will be available to download for from February 7 until the end of the month.
