A touch late to the party this month due to technical difficulties, On Wednesday, December 29th, 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 (2022). These games will be available for PS Plus members from Tuesday, January 4th until Tuesday, February 1st.
Deep Rock Galactic – PS4/PS5
First up for January is the one-four player co-op bug-splatting must-have from developers Ghost Ship Games and publishers Coffee Stain: Deep Rock Galactic. Out of early access and into full launch, this FPS contains dwarves, guns, and loot. What else do you need? Oh, procedurally generated cave systems for a cherry on top? Sure, Why not.
Persona 5 Strikers – PS4
Following up the hotly anticipated and expectation-smashing JRPG Persona 5 comes its spinoff iteration: Strikers. From the same developer (Atlus), Strikers is a departure from the turn-based format in the form of a single-player ARPG fighter. This one flew under some radars, but with moderate-to-high scores, it must be worth the price of a subscription (not including the other two games). So far, this is shaping up to be a great month for game giveaways.
Dirt 5 – PS4/PS5
Lastly, for the month of January, we have Dirt *checks notes* 5. Itching for a ‘next-gen’ off-road racing experience? Then Dirt 5 has you covered. No pun intended. From drop-in racing to hardcore simulation oriented playstyles, developers Codemasters covered all the bases in the latest iteration of the Dirt franchise.
That’s a wrap for this month’s PlayStation Plus games folks. Last month’s Godfall: Challenger Edition, LEGO DC Super-Villains, and Mortal Shell were available to grab until Monday, January 3rd.
Until next time, stay classy.
