Sony has announced the PlayStation Plus January 2023 free games. The PS Plus Essential titles are a great way to open the year. Escape the Empire’s clutches in single-player adventure Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, head into the wastelands with friends in online RPG Fallout 76 and enjoy platforming action in Axion Verge 2. Let’s take a closer look at the monthly lineup.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order | PS4, PS5
Cal Kestis’ story begins here. Ahead of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor launching in March, find out how Cal Kestis’ journey began in this original Star Wars story from Respawn Entertainment. Following the events of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Senator Palpatine’s deadly Order 66 — designed to destroy the Jedi order and pave the way for the Empire to rise — you are the last remaining Jedi Padawan and their last hope of survival. Pick up the pieces of your shattered past, complete your Jedi training, develop powerful Force abilities, and master your Lightsaber on your quest to rebuild the Jedi. Fight to stay one step ahead of the Empire and its deadly Inquisitors, use your Jedi training to strategically approach every fight, and visit far-flung corners of the Star Wars galaxy, packed with new characters, creatures, enemies and droids.
Fallout 76 | PS4
Twenty-five years after the bombs fell, you and your fellow Vault Dwellers—chosen from the nation’s best and brightest – emerge into post-nuclear America on Reclamation Day, 2102. Play solo or join together as you explore, quest, build, and triumph against the wasteland’s greatest threats. Explore a vast wasteland, devastated by nuclear war, in this open-world multiplayer addition to the Fallout story. Experience the largest, most dynamic world ever created in the legendary Fallout universe.
Axion Verge 2 | PS4, PS5
Explore two connected worlds, wield ancient tech and question reality in this explorative platformer sequel, which expands on the universe with entirely new characters, abilities and gameplay. Explore an alternate Earth-like world, replete with the ruins of an ancient, high-tech civilization. Hack machines, battle monsters and use your remote drone to enter the Breach, a parallel but connected reality that is filled with its dangers. You’ll want to search every inch for the hidden items and upgrades you need to survive.
The games will be redeemable from January 3rd. All three titles are available for PS Plus Essential, Extra and Premium subscribers.
PlayStation Plus members have until Monday, January 2nd to add Divine Knockout: Founder’s Edition, Mass Effect Legendary Edition and Biomutant to their game library.
