Each month, two PS4 games and a PS5 title are made available for free to all those subscribed to Sony’s PlayStation Plus service. January’s free games have now leaked, and if the line-up proves to be true, then PS+ will be off to a very strong start in 2022.
As reported by the Dealabs (who also managed to get their hands on the list of free Epic Games Store titles), PlayStation Plus users in January will be able to get their hands on:
- Persona 5 Strikers (PS4)
- Deep Rock Galactic (PS4|5)
- DIRT 5 (PS4|5)
Interestingly, this will be the first month that two PlayStation 5 games are being given away for free (unless you count March 2021’s PS Plus games which included the PS4 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake – which can now be upgraded for free to the PS5 version).
Furthermore, while previous PS5 titles were only playable on Sony’s newest system, both Deep Rock Galactic and DIRT 5 have PS4 versions which are being made available for those still using the last-gen console.
In previous months, all players would be able to redeem the PS5 games, however the titles were only playable on the next-gen system – even if the game offered a PS4 SKU. Seeing Sony shifting towards making the service even more consumer friendly is a positive step, and perhaps gives us our first look at the direction that the console manufacturer is planning to take with PS+ revamp (which is rumoured to be in the works).
While Dealabs have historically been accurate with its leaks, it is worth stressing that nothing is 100% confirmed until it is announced by Sony. Still, if true, January 2022’s PS+ titles are helping to start the new year off in a strong manner.
