PlayStation Plus subscribers get three free games in December.
Anyone with an active PlayStation Plus membership can get three free games in December.
PlayStation offers these deals to its subscribers on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 monthly.
Even if you only subscribe to the PlayStation Plus Essential tier, you can claim these games for free during the month.
The PlayStation Plus free games for December go live on December 6, and you’ll have until January 2 to claim them. Let’s see what’s up for grabs this month.
Free PlayStation Plus games for December
PlayStation is kicking off December’s free games with the classic RPG remaster of the entire Mass Effect trilogy.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition revamps the graphics and gameplay of the iconic series following Commander Shepard in his trek through space.
Next up for grabs is Divine Knockout: Founder’s Edition.
This multiplayer arena battle game is launching directly to PlayStation Plus. Play as powerful gods as you knock your opponents out of the arena in this brawler.
Finally, PS Plus subscribers can get Biomutant for free in December.
Biomutant is a colorful RPG where you build your own character and take on increasingly difficult enemies in action-packed kung-fu-like combat.
That does it for December’s free PlayStation Plus games. All of the games are available on PS4 and PS5 through backward compatibility.
Remember, you can claim these games on December 6, and you’ll have until January 2 before they’re gone.
Once you claim them, they’re yours to play forever. Well, for as long as you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription.
PlayStation Plus Premium and Extra game catalog additions
In addition to free games every month, PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium subscribers have a couple of extra benefits.
Extra and Premium subscribers also get access to a rotating list of PS4 and PS5 games that they can play for free whenever they want.
On December 20, the platform is adding several games to the Game Catalog:
Like Xbox’s Game Pass, PlayStation adds new games to the list every month, with this month’s batch coming on December 20.
One of the games joining the catalog is Far Cry 5, the story of a brutal doomsday cult in Hope County, Montana.
Gamers will also get to try out Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Yakuza: Like a Dragon puts you in the role of a low-ranking grunt in a crim family in Tokyo.
Players can also revisit the world of Lord of the Rings in Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Middle-Earth Shadow of War.
Plus, enter the ring as your favorite wrestler in WWE 2K22, which makes its way to the PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium catalog on January 3.
Full list of games coming to the PS Plus Game Catalog on December 20:
All of these games are available on PS4 and PS5 through backward compatibility.
You’ll be able to play any of them for free as long as you are a PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium subscriber.
And if you’re a Premium subscriber, you get one additional benefit: the Classics catalog.
PlayStation is adding four more games to its Classic catalog for Premium subscribers this month:
- Ridge Racer 2 (PSP)
- Heavenly Sword (PS3)
- Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus (PS1)
- Pinball Heroes (PSP)
The Classics catalog from PlayStation Plus Premium is incredibly nostalgic, filled with titles that longtime gamers will love revisiting.
