The free PlayStation Plus games for January 2022 are available to download right now, and they're a pretty darn solid collection of titles you won't want to miss.
Shocking precisely nobody, the leaked games that appeared at the tail-end of December 2021 were indeed the real deal. PlayStation confirmed the three freebies in the last week of the year, and the January lineup is free for PlayStation Plus subscribers to download and add to their library from today (January 4).
As of right this second, you can get your hands on action-RPG Persona 5 Strikers, racing game Dirt 5, and sci-fi shooter Deep Rock Galactic. If this is your first day back at work, start 2022 as you mean to go on by immediately walking away from your desk to travel home and download these games.
January's PlayStation Plus games will be available to subscribers until February 4, at which point they'll be replaced by new free games. I mean, you know how it works by now.
However, 2022 could well see the start of a major overhaul for the PlayStation Plus service. According to a Bloomberg report published late last year, Sony is planning to change up the service in an attempt to rival Xbox Game Pass. It's said the company even intends to combine PS Plus and PS Now, as well as finally add a handful of classic original PlayStation and PlayStation 2 titles.
Like Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, the new PlayStation subscription service would be broken into tiers, the report suggests. The first tier might resemble the PS Plus service as we currently know it, for example, while the second tier would add more PS Now games. A third tier, meanwhile, would add PS1, PS2, and even PSP games - as well as a few "extended demos".
