VICTORY ROYALE: Worms Rumble will be part of December's PS Plus game. A 32 player arena shooter/battle royale game.

The free games won't be redeemable during the free weekend though, as players need an active subscription to claim them.


But players can then get an active subscription after and claim them before December 31st.

One month of membership is £6.99 so it isn't a bad price to grab three good games.
