The new PlayStation Plus games were leaked in late December, marking the fifth month in a row that the line-up has been revealed ahead of Sony’s official announcement. They’re available to claim until February 1.
PlayStation Plus Monthly Games - PS5 & PS4 - January 2022
The number of PlayStation Plus subscribers totalled 47.2 million as of September 2021, according to Sony.
January PlayStation Now games were announced earlier this week and are also available to subscribers today.
Details on an Xbox Game Pass competitor service reportedly being planned by PlayStation emerged last month.
According to documents seen by Bloomberg, the new subscription service is codenamed ‘Spartacus’ and will combine the current PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now services, phasing out the branding of the latter. It’s expected to launch for PS4 and PS5 this spring and to be structured across three payment tiers.
The first tier will reportedly include existing PlayStation Plus benefits, such as online play and free monthly titles. The second will offer a large catalogue of games like Xbox Game Pass (although not first-party titles at launch). The third tier will add extended demos, game streaming and a library of classic PlayStation games.
