Thanks to a reliable leak, the free PS Plus games for January 2022 are out now, but for the uninitiated, here’s everything you need to know.
As has been the case in recent months, the PS More The free games have been leaked online ahead of their expected reveal date (December 29 for the January 2022 selection). In recent months, these games were leaked by Dealabs user BillBil-Kun, who has been incredibly accurate and has even leaked every game in the Epic Games Store promotion so far.
As such, while all the leaks should be taken with a grain of salt, your leak of the free PS Plus games for January 2022 is likely accurate. It is said to be Deep Rock Galactic, Persona 5 Strikers Y Dirt 5“So for those of you who aren’t sure what they are, here’s everything you need to know.”
Free PS Plus Game for January 2022 – Deep Rock Galactic
Available for PS4 and PS5 PS Plus subscribers, Galactic Deep Rock is a cooperative first person shooter game for up to 4 players, complete with Space Dwarves, destructible environments, procedurally generated caves and endless hordes of aliens. The player will face one of four classes: the Gunner, who is designed to annihilate enemies, scout and provide light as a scout, destroy rocks as a driller, or defend the team with structures and turrets as an engineer.
Players will have to work together to traverse “the most hostile cave systems in the galaxy,” and the procedural build will add a nice touch of replayability. This is only really improved with Galactic Deep Rockseasonal content. Additionally, the destructible environments provide players with elements of surprise, recklessness, and much more, all for a new factor of fun, especially when adding flamethrowers, gatling guns, platform launchers, and more.
Free PS Plus Game for January 2022 – Persona 5 Strikers
For PS4 owners, Persona 5 Strikers is set a few months after the events of the main game, where Joker and Morgana return to Tokyo for a summer vacation with the Phantom Thieves. Persona 5 Strikers, in particular, it is a game by Musou that combines elements of Koei Tecmo Warrior dynasty franchise (like its real-time action combat) and PersonShift items. Basically, the action and combat are in real time, but a tactical menu will stop the battle to allow tactical positioning of Person skills, not unlike something like Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Players can collect new Personas through random drops or in dungeons, where they can be merged to create new ones. The Bond system replaces Person 5confident, and players can form groups of four; the only one who cannot be eliminated is Joker. In general, it is a fairly straightforward derivative of Musou Person 5, but for those who haven’t played it, it’s quite fun.
Free PS Plus Game for January 2022 – Dirt 5
For PS4 and PS5 PS Plus subscribers, Dirt 5 It is the last game from Codemasters before its acquisition by EA earlier this year. It was also developed by former developers of Driveclub Y Motor storm, with the game now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One and Xbox Series X. It is a simcade racing video game, much like the Dirt games before.
Dirt 5 features a career mode, which many racing games seem to lean towards more now than in recent years, and features the player against a rival driver named Bruno (and played by Nolan North). The player also has a mentor named AJ (who is played by Troy Baker), adding some star power to the overall campaign.
Dirt 5 focuses primarily on off-road racing, with rallycross, ice racing, Stadium Super Trucks and off-road buggies, with events everywhere from Arizona and Brazil to Norway and South Africa. All of these landscapes are brought to life through the game’s season system, where, for example, players can only complete ice racing events in New York during the winter season.
For those who miss couch co-op, or more specifically here, split-screen racing, Dirt 5 also includes this for friends.
PS More subscribers get a handful of free games every month.
