Sony Confirms PlayStation Plus Games for January 2022 are Persona 5 Strikers, Deep Rock Galactic, and Dirt 5

Space dwarves, JRPG, and off-road racing are in store for January.


Looks like the good people over at Dealabs were right again as the PlayStation Plus games for January have been confirmed, Persona 5 Strikers, Deep Rock Galactic, and DiRT 5. The list of games was leaked earlier last week through the Dealabs forum, as they have been consistently for the past few months. All 3 games will be available for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers starting January 4, 2022.

All of these games are solid offerings with Persona 5 Strikers being a clear standout, as one of the most beloved games of 2020. Deep Rock Galactic is a fun, co-op first-person shooter that puts players in control of space dwarves fighting against endless hordes of aliens. The game has 100% destructible environments, which is one of the most fun aspects of the game.

PlayStation Plus free games for January confirmed

DiRT 5 is the fifth instalment in the racing sim series that is renowned for its level of authenticity and challenge. While the controls may be a bit difficult to pick up at first, there are enough assists available to ease the player into the game and let them get familiar with all the controls at a pace they’re comfortable at.

All of these games will be available to download from January 4 and will be available until February 1, 2022. The PlayStation Plus games for December are still available for download, including 3 bonus PS VR games. Players can still add Godfall: Challenger Editio, Lego DC Super-Villains, and Mortal Shell to their library. The 3 bonus PS VR games are The Persistence, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Standard Edition and Until You Fall.

PlayStation Plus games lineup for the month of January is pretty decent, and considering how great last months’ lineup was, looks like things are looking good for PS Plus subscribers. However, it looks like Sony might be under a little bit of pressure given how incredibly popular Xbox Game Pass has gotten in the past year.
