Though the official list of free games for PS Plus subscribers have yet to be revealed, we love a bit of speculation and rumor, so here’s some of our guesses at the games that may feature in the PlayStation Plus January 2017 line-up.

Okay, let’s get it over and done with right from the start, Knack! We’ve predicted Knack almost every month for many months throughout 2016, but with the official announcement of Knack 2 at PSX last month it’s looking more and more likely that we’ll see SIE Japan’s colorful action-platformer make its way to PlayStation Plus next year.

Rayman Legends
Ubisoft are no strangers to the PlayStation Plus line-up, and Rayman Legends has often been part of Sony’s sales on the PlayStation Store, prompting speculation that the quirky platformer could make an appearance in January.

Gravity Rush Remastered
The original Gravity Rush has already appeared on PS Plus, and with Gravity Rush Remastered already appearing for free on the Asian and Japanese stores we’d guess it’s only a matter of time before Project Siren’s gravity-defying, action-adventure lands on PS4 for subscribers.

Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster
Resident Evil HD was one of the free PS4 games in October, so we wouldn’t be surprised at all if Capcom decides to release Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster for Plus in January. The third-person survival horror is far from being the best in the series, but it would be a lovely follow-up for fans of the Resident Evil remake.

Until Dawn: Rush of Blood
At some point, Sony will introduce a free PlayStation VR game to its PS Plus offerings. No doubt they’ll be more PlayStation VR headsets in player’s homes following the festive period, so now is as good a time as any to introduce one of the games. Our prediction is Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, the roller-coaster ride through hell, which serves as the perfect introduction to virtual reality gaming on PS4.

Of course, we don’t think all of these games will make it as there’s always a few indie surprises in store, so take all the rumors above with a pinch of salt until Sony reveals the official PS Plus games for January at the end of December.
