Prior to the start of a new year in just a few short days, Sony has today revealed the new free games that will be coming to PlayStation Plus to start 2022. Following a new report last week, we already had a good idea of what titles to expect for 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.
In total, three new games will be available to download for no cost whatsoever starting next week on January 4. Those games include Deep Rock Galactic, Persona 5 Strikers, and Dirt 5. Specifically, the versions of Dirt 5 and Deep Rock Galactic that are being offered up are for both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. Conversely, Persona 5 Strikers is only available as a PS4 title, although it is still forward compatible on PS5.
As a whole, this is one of the stronger months that we have likely seen on PlayStation Plus in quite some time. Not only are all of these titles of greatly differing genres, meaning that there is a little something for everyone here, but most of these games are also fairly new. All in all, it's a good start to the new year for those who remain subscribed to PS Plus.
If you would like to learn more about each free game coming to PlayStation Plus next month, you can find official descriptions of each attached below.
