Deep Rock Galactic is now available for download on PS4 and PS5 consoles and seems to be a sure-fire hit with fans.
With its unique playstyle and setting, many PlayStation Plus subscribers have been battling giant Aranchids in the dark since the new free titles went live in January.
But there were a few startup issues that kept a few PlayStation owners from continuing their journey.
Issues with the server lists not performing as they should and players unable to connect with friends and claim the free DLC resulted in some issues.
But the good news for all PS Plus subscribers is that Deep Rock Galactic has received its first patch and all of these issues have been resolved.
And while some fans are still limited by the localized languages available in the game, the developers at Coffee Stain Studios have confirmed that they will be adding more in the future.
Available for download now from PlayStation Store, PS Plus subscribers can claim Persona 5 Strikers, Dirt 5, and Deep Rock Galactic until early February 2022.
The Persona 5 spin-off is seen as a cross between the role-playing game Atlus and Dynasty Warriors, featuring the latter’s hack and slash gameplay.
Meanwhile, Dirt 5 will be playable on PlayStation 4 and PS5, with the rally racing game featuring multiple racing styles and arcade gameplay.
The third and final PlayStation Plus game is Deep Rock Galactic, a co-op shooter in which a host of badass space dwarves battle alien invaders.
“Work as a team to dig, explore, and fight your way through a massive cave system filled with hordes of deadly enemies and precious resources.
“You will have to rely on your teammates if you want to survive the most hostile cave systems in the galaxy!” “
The game has “overwhelmingly positive” reviews on Steam, where fans praise its intuitive communication system and overall variety.
And since Deep Rock Galactic is currently not available on the PlayStation Store, this will make a pretty solid debut on the PS4 and PS5 consoles.
Meanwhile, some PS Plus subscribers found themselves clamoring for a different range of free titles in January 2022.
According to players in some regions, Persona 5 Strikers has been discontinued and replaced with How to Survive 2, a game with much lower review ratings.
The good news is that only certain regions were affected by this change, and Sony warns that this is something that can happen from time to time, telling fans:
“Different countries have different rights, different release schedules, and as many of you know have different things available in their PlayStation Store for that reason.
“We’re constantly working to align our content globally, but also to make sure our North American audience gets the content that’s available to them, as some games are released around the world at different times.”
