In a bit of a shakeup this month, On Wednesday, December 1st, Adam Michel (Senior Manager of Game Services Content for Sony Interactive Entertainment) revealed the free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers for the month of December. In addition, this month includes last month’s bonuses to celebrate PS VR’s 5th anniversary. These games will be available for PS Plus members from Tuesday, December 7th until Monday, January 3rd.
Godfall: Challenger Edition – PS4/PS5
Up first for December we have an…odd pick. The Challenger Edition is Godfall’s endgame, minus the story and expansions. Godfall, while beautiful, didn’t make as much of a splash as Counterplay Games and publisher Gearbox Publishing were likely hoping. This appears more like a demo to bait more sales but hey, it’s free with the price of subscription.
LEGO DC Super-Villains – PS4
With generally moderate reviews, LEGO DC Super-Villains, developed by TT Games and Feral Interactive (co-publishing with Warner Bros. IE) boasts the tried-and-true LEGO formula applied to a different, more villainous palette. Perfect for some light DC fun or an afternoon with a the kids. Maybe not the AAA bombshell some will hope for, but not bad. Let’s see whats next.
Mortal Shell – PS4
While this title was recently added to Xbox’s Game Pass, it looks like it’s PlayStation’s turn. We reviewed Mortal Shell (Video) on PC here (written) if you’re interested in our indepth thoughts on this 8/10 souls-like adventure, and while you’re at it our very own Olly is doing a lets play right now. Mortal Shell, developed by Cold Symmetry is a more than worthy title to have.
The Persistence – PS VR
Onward and upward to our next 3 free games this month extending from November to celebrate VR’s 5th anniversary, starting with The Persistence. Man this one makes me wish I had VR, a savage looking sci-fi horror experience taking place in 2521 developed by Firesprite, and self-published in association with Sony IE. Survive on a doomed ship in this rogue-lite horror.
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – PS VR
Next we have the latest video game installment to the Walking Dead franchise with Saints & Sinners developed by Skydance Interactive. Like zombies? You’ll love this first person adventure-horror surviving in the apocalyptic streets of New Orleans.
Until You Fall – PS VR
I enjoy how playstation.blog phrases it with
Fantasy and synthwave collide in this physically active PS VR sword fighting game. Grow stronger as you battle through an awesome neon environment and strike down magic-infused monstrosities in this hack-and-slash roguelite
That just sounds glorious. Makes a dude want some goggles.
That’s a wrap for this month’s PlayStation Plus games folks. Both this & last month’s Knockout City, Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, and First Class Trouble will be available to grab until Monday, December 6th.
Until next time, stay classy.
