November’s PlayStation Plus games have been revealed early
Knockout City, The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners and more are headed to the service next month
November’s PlayStation Plus games have been revealed ahead of Sony’s official announcement.
According to user Billbill-Kun on Dealabs – who correctly leaked the PS Plus line-ups for September and October – November’s free titles will be:
- Knockout City (PS5 / PS4)
- The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners (PSVR)
- First Class Trouble (PS5 / PS4)
- Kingdom of Amalur: Re-Reckoning (PS4)
UPDATE: November 2021’s PlayStation Plus games have been officially announced.
Sony confirmed earlier this month that November’s PS Plus offering would include three PlayStation VR games, to celebrate the platform’s fifth anniversary.
While one of these is The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners, Billbill-Kun says they’re leaving the other two as surprises, and believes they may be revealed during the State of Play presentation taking place today (Wednesday, October 27).
October’s PlayStation Plus games, which were also correctly leaked by the same person, were Hell Let Loose (PS5), Mortal Kombat X (PS4) and PGA Tour 2K21 (PS4).
In August Sony indicated that it’s not concerned about a recent decline in PlayStation Plus subscribers and monthly active users.
In the company’s Q1 financial results published, which cover the three months ended June 30, Sony reported total PS Plus subscribers of 46.3 million, which is up 1.3m year-on-year but down by over 1 million compared to the two most recent quarters.
According to eight years of data collated by Resetera, it’s the first time PlayStation Plus users have significantly dipped between quarters during this time period.
Sony’s chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki blamed the decline on last year’s stay-at-home restrictions and the increase they had on game activity.
“Of course, 104m is not a strong number, but are we looking at it as a declining trend? We don’t think so,” he commented. “We are trying to analyse different elements, but there are no conspicuous trends that we can capture. Maybe this month or next month we will have to continue to watch and do an analysis.”
