Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is free on PlayStation Plus in January

Each month, those subscribed to Sony’s PlayStation Plus Essential service are privy to receiving a number of games for ‘free’. Following a leaked line-up, Sony has now officially announced January’s PS Plus Essential titles.

Making the announcement on the PlayStation Blog, Adam Michel, the Director for Content Acquisition & Operations at SIE said “Today we’re happy to reveal the PlayStation Plus Monthly Games for January. Escape the Empire’s clutches in single player adventure Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, head into the wastelands with friends in online RPG Fallout 76 and enjoy platforming action in Axiom Verge 2.”

As was leaked previously, January’s official line-up is as follows:

  • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PS4 / PS5)
  • Axiom Verge 2 (PS4 / PS5)
  • Fallout 76 (PS4)

The headlining title is undoubtedly Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. This action-adventure metroidvania-lite saw great critical praise following its initial release back in 2019. This version in particular offers both the PS4 and PS5 SKUs, meaning players can enjoy the many benefits of a native PS5 app including faster loading times, DualSense features and more.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a timely addition to the service given the upcoming launch of its sequel ‘Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’ which is set to release at the end of January. If you were wanting to play (or replay) Fallen Order before Jedi: Survivor, this offers the opportune way to do so.

Those waiting for January’s PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium line-ups will need to wait a little bit longer as according to Sony, those will be “announced soon”. January’s PlayStation Plus Essential games will be available to add to your library from the 3rd of January.
