PlayStation Plus

Putting out a regular assortment of freebies for PlayStation Plus subscribers, Sony, similarly to Xbox’s Games With Gold program, has continued offering members a free lineup of games for the duration of the month. As our current month and year eventfully comes to a close, the inaugural PS Plus free games for January 2022 have now been revealed, presenting a fun time for fans of arcade racers, combat RPGs, and craft-adjacent FPSs.

Highlighting the bunch, next month sees Codemasters’ supreme offroad racer Dirt 5 made available to PlayStation owners alongside the action-oriented spin-off RPG Persona 5 Strikers. These two titles are in company with the day-one debut of Deep Rock Galactic, a fan-favorite centered around the idea of co-op play and the decidedly unique premise of cosmic crafting dwarves with machine guns. A rundown of January’s selections can be viewed below.
