For those who subscribe to the PlayStation Plus service, the beginning of each month holds nice surprises for downloads and this upcoming month has plenty to offer. The official PlayStation blog revealed their eclectic lineup on Wednesday of free games that will be available in December.

For PlayStation 4, players can download Injustice: Gods Among Us – Ultimate Edition. This variant of the last-generation game features six extra characters including Lobo, Zatanna, Martian Manhunter, and General Zod, 30 skins and 60 S.T.A.R. Labs missions. The fighting game itself has plenty of fun story and interesting mechanics to make it worthy of the hard drive space.

An additional multiplayer indie game Secret Ponchos, will launch for free on PS4. The game appears to be strictly a player vs. player type set in the wild west, but has the ability to host 4v4 team top-down, arcade-style shooting battles.

For PlayStation 3, users can dive into the entire Hitman franchise with Hitman HD Trilogy or make a foray into the cult sensation Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut. Both choices are packed with hours of gameplay, making them nice tidings for the winter season.

Finally PS Vita users get a little love with Titan Attacks! and Final Horizon available for the handheld. Final Horizon boasts a description of “two-minute tower defense” with its fast pace and outer space settings, while Titan Attacks! can satiate that classic arcade shooter itch.

All of the above games will go free for download on Dec. 2.
