PlayStation Plus Monthly Games – PS5 & PS4 – January 2023
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 PlayStation Plus Essential games are still available to claim until January 2. They are Mass Effect Legendary Edition (PS4), Biomutant (PS5/PS4) and Divine Knockout: Founder’s Edition (PS5/PS4).
January’s Game Catalog line-up for PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium members will be announced “soon”, according to Sony.
