The free monthly PlayStation Plus games for January 2023 leak online ahead of their official announcement later in December 2022.
The PlayStation Plus free monthly games for January 2023 have leaked online. PS Plus users across all tiers get around three games for free every month, and members get to keep these titles for as long as they are subscribed.
The PlayStation Plus games for December 2022 were similarly leaked ahead of their scheduled announcement. Sony offered Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Biomutant, and Divine Knockout in December, so users got to essentially play five games at no extra cost. The final list of PS Plus games for 2022 was pretty solid, and that trend continues with the leaked collection of games for January 2023.
According to billbil-kun, the PS Plus free monthly games for January 2023 will include Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Fallout 76, and Axiom Verge 2. While Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Axiom Verge 2 both have native PS5 versions, Bethesda has not re-released Fallout 76 on current-generation consoles, so gamers will have to play the PS4 edition. The same leaker has correctly revealed the free PS Plus games of each month ahead of the official announcement, so there is little reason to doubt the authenticity of this leak. Still, players should take every leak or rumor with a grain of salt.
In some cases, there can be an overlap between the various PS Plus tiers. Out of the three free titles coming to the service in January 2023, Fallout 76 is already available to PS Plus Extra and Premium subscribers as a part of a massive catalog of games.
Fans should note that the PS5 version of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order comes with some extra features including support for 4K resolution and a separate mode for 60 FPS gameplay. EA will also release a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order called Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on March 17, 2023, just a couple of months following the original’s arrival on PS Plus. This gives users a great opportunity to try out Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and finish the story in preparation for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
While these three games will be available to all PS Plus members, Extra and Premium subscribers get bonus games every month. Sony added 17 games to the PS Plus Extra library in December, including Far Cry 5, Judgment, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, The Escapists 2, and more. WWE 2K22 is scheduled to be available on January 3, 2023, but users will only have access to the PS4 version of the game.
