PS Plus December 2021: Announcement, Confirmed Games, & Release Date

Jump To

It's announcement day and PlayStation has confirmed that the free games we're expecting to see from PS Plus in December 2021. Here's everything you need to know...

CONFIRMED - December 2021 PS Plus Games

It looks like the leaks were right, again, and December 2021's PS Plus games are as follows:

  • Godfall (PS5)
  • Mortal Shell (PS4)
  • LEGO DC Super Villains (PS4)

It's far from a bad selection of games and there should be more than enough hours in there to keep you playing over the festive period. We just hope PlayStation can start 2022 off with a truly unmissable game (or two!)

ANNOUNCEMENT TIME - When do we expect it?

Today's PS Plus announcement should arrive at the following times:

  • 08:30 PST - December 1st
  • 11:30 EST - December 1st
  • 16:30 GMT - December 1st

PlayStation always announces their PS Plus games a week before they're due to release and we're not expecting anything like a State of Play presentation to push this announcement back. Keep reading to check out the latest leaks and any other free PlayStation games that are on the way...

Another free PS5 game is coming?

Although it isn't directly tied to December's PS Plus offerings, Dauntless is getting a native next-gen PS5 release and it's due to come out on December 2nd! This is another free PS5 game and it's one game you should check out - think Fortnite but Monster Hunter.

Dauntless on PS5 will boast significant visual upgrades, DualSense support, and the new "Call to Arms" content update. You can learn more about it below:

LEAKS - Full December 2021 line-up revealed?

We're about a week away from the official December 2021 PS Plus games announcement and it looks like the line-up has been leaked early! This isn't a surprise, because it's PlayStation - their PS Plus games have been leaked early for the last six months - but it is a shame.

French site Dealabs has shared next month's line-up and they haven't been wrong before - it's worth taking with a pinch of salt, either way, but it could be true.

The December 2021 PS Plus games are...

  • Godfall (PS5)
  • Mortal Shell (PS4)
  • LEGO DC Super Villains (PS4)

TROUBLED - Godfall never really took off so this could be huge

Are you happy with these? It certainly seems like a better selection than last month.

FREE GAMES - Confirmed PS Plus titles

At the moment, we only know about a handful of games we're getting with PS Plus in December 2021 - and they're all PSVR games.

Last month's selection of free PSVR games is carrying over with December 2021's PS Plus offerings to continue the celebrations of PSVR's 5th Anniversary. With this in mind, we're getting the following games next month:

  • The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners (PSVR)
  • The Persistence (PSVR)
  • Until You Fall (PSVR)

PREDICTIONS - What might we get?

Traditionally, PlayStation throws us at least one PS5 game and two PS4 games. On occasion, there's both the current-gen and next-gen version of a game available, and sometimes it's only the next-gen version of a title. It's a little hard to predict, but we rarely see next-gen exclusive games added to PS Plus.

That being said, it could happen. It's not unheard of, as we've seen Oddworld Soulstorm debut as a PS Plus game on Day One. With that in mind, here's what we think could happen with December 2021 and the PS Plus announcement we're expecting.

Aliens: Fireteam Elite is one PS5 title that could benefit from being thrown into a PS Plus line-up. It had a strong launch, but its player-base quickly declined. With a strong premise and the Aliens IP behind it, Aliens: Fireteam Elite could find a new lease of life with PS Plus in a similar way to how Predator: Hunting Grounds was added a couple of months ago.

In addition to this, we could see Uncharted: The Lost Legacy finally added to PS Plus. It's one of the best PlayStation Exclusive titles we've seen in some time and we're still waiting for a chance to play it with PS Plus. December would be the perfect time to treat us to this fantastic adventure in the absence of any news about another Uncharted title.

LOST LEGACY - This one doesn't follow Nate, which is arguably better

Another title that would be a welcome addition to the service is Far Cry 5. Ubisoft's Far Cry games offer hours of content and Far Cry 5 is a fantastic entry into the series. You can recruit a Grizzly Bear - Cheeseburger - to fight alongside you. Need we say more?

LAST MONTH'S GAMES - Here's what we've had

The November 2021 PS Plus games weren't anything special, but they were far from bad. PlayStation offered us the following...

  • Knockout City (PS4 & PS5)
  • First Class Trouble (PS4 & PS5)
  • Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning (PS4)

You've still got time to download these games - or add them to your Game Library, at least.
