The three games will be available to claim from December 6 until January 2.
Essential is the entry-level PlayStation Plus membership tier, which offers subscribers access to a few ‘free’ games every month.
Players can continue to play these games even after they’re no longer available to claim at the end of the monthly period, as long as they continue to subscribe to PlayStation Plus Essential (or a higher tier).
Once their membership ends, they’ll no longer be able to play these games unless they resubscribe.
December’s Game Catalog line-up for PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium members will be announced later this month.
This month’s PlayStation Plus Game Catalog additions, which are only available to Extra and Premium tier members, include The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition, Rainbow Six Siege and four Kingdom Hearts titles.
November’s additions to the PlayStation Plus Classics library, which is only available to Premium subscribers, include five Ratchet & Clank titles.
