Ahead of the start of a new year in a few days, Sony today unveiled the new free games coming to PlayStation Plus from 2022. Following a new report last week, we already had a good idea of which titles to wait until the dawn of the new year, but PlayStation itself has now confirmed that all of these games will arrive on PS Plus in less than a week.
A total of three new games will be available for free download starting next week, January 4. These games include Galactic Deep Rock, Persona 5 attackers, and Dirt 5. Specifically, the versions of Dirt 5 and Galactic Deep Rock that are offered are for both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. Conversely, Persona 5 attackers is only available as a PS4 title, although it is still compatible with the PS5.
Overall, this is one of the strongest months we’ve probably seen on PlayStation Plus in quite some time. Not only are all of these titles from very different genres which means there is something for everyone here, but most of these games are pretty new as well. Overall, it’s a good start to the year for those who remain with PS Plus.
