On Wednesday, December 30th, 2020 Adam Michel (Senior Manager of Game Services Content for Sony Interactive Entertainment) revealed the free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers for the month of January. These games will be available for PS Plus members, from Tuesday, January 5th, until Monday February 1st, 2021. They are as follows:
Maneater – PS5
Developed by Tripwire Interactive in conjunction with Blindside Interactive and published by Tripwire, Deep Silver and Koch Media, Maneater is a shark week fans fever dream. Welcomed with divisive reception, Maneater blends mild RPG mechanics with open world freedom offering a unique experience sometimes criticized for its game mechanics. Regardless of its flaws, for a limited time it’s free for you to decide if you like it or not.
Shadow Of The Tomb Raider – PS4
Next up we have Shadow of The Tomb Raider developed by Crystal Dynamics, Eidos-Montréal assisted by Nixxes Software BV, and published with the help of (unsurprisingly) Square Enix and Feral Interactive. Once again players join Lara croft in a critically acclaimed third person action adventure game in a direct sequel to Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Greedfall – PS4
Finally, sealing off the month of January we have Greedfall. Developed by Spiders and published by Focus Home Interactive, Greedfall is a narratively driven choice oriented RPG that I’m personally quite excited to give a shot. Received middlingly by audiences, Greedfall culminated quite the fanbase and many are exited to see whats next for Spiders. But that’s then and this is now, and right now – you can get your hands on Greedfall free.
That’s all we’ve got for this month’s PlayStation Plus games folks. Last month’s Worms Rumble, Just Cause 4, and Rocket Arena will be available to grab until Monday, January 4th, 2021.
