There is some exciting news being shared by PS Plus players ahead of the next big subscription update on PS4 and PS5.
Players are taking to social media to confirm that they have received special offers and upgrades from Sony that extended their PlayStation Plus membership.
As these lucky few reported, emails are sent confirming that they have been selected for a one or two week extension of service at no additional cost.
Unfortunately for those hoping to get their own expansion, it appears that the participants are selected at random.
And that means you’ll have to keep an eye on your email to see if you’re one of the lucky few chosen for the latest PS Plus giveaway.
One user commented online about the new deal: “Yes. I received it at the end of my Plus subscription and I did not renew it automatically or manually. I’m assuming there are bonuses related to the number / growth of ps + subscribers measured on the last day of the year.
Another added: “I guess you got it because your PS + was going to end during the holiday period and it goes on until the beginning of January?” “
And it won’t be long before the main January update arrives and the next free PlayStation Plus games are released.
As previously confirmed by Sony, these will include Persona 5 Strikers, Dirt 5, and Deep Rock Galactic.
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.
Also note that players have until the end of Monday, January 3 to add not only Godfall: Challenger Edition, Lego DC Super-Villains and Mortal Shell to their game library, but also the three bonus PS VR games: The Persistence, The The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Standard Edition & Until You Drop.
