CONFIRMED - December 2021 PS Plus Games

The leaks were right and it looks like PS Plus is throwing the following games at us next month:

  • Godfall (PS5)
  • Mortal Shell (PS4)
  • LEGO DC Super Villains (PS4)

They're far from bad games, but they're nothing to write home about. We want to see an unmissable title from PS Plus next year - 2022, we're waiting on you.

Announcement incoming, gamers!

PlayStation's PS Plus announcement is a matter of hours away. We usually see an announcement a week before the games are made available and we've had to wait a long time for that - because November 2021's games are available until December 6th.

Thankfully, we should find out what we're getting from PS Plus in December 2021 at the following times:

  • 08:30 - PST
  • 11:30 - EST
  • 16:30 - GMT

Take this with a pinch of salt, but there isn't a State of Play presentation coming so we shouldn't see any delays this month.

UPDATE - More free games in December?

If you're looking for something to play a little bit before the new PS Plus games are made available, Dauntless might be the game for you. This Monster Hunter-like action RPG is getting a native next-gen PS5 release on December 2nd and it's worth checking out.

You'll be getting significant visual upgrades and enhancements, DualSense and 3D Audio support, and the "Call to Arms" content update with the PS5 release. There's never been a better time to check it out. Here's what you need to know:

DECEMBER 2021 - Release, Reveal, and more

PlayStation is expected to reveal their next batch of PS Plus games at the following times:

  • 08:30 PST - December 1st
  • 11:30 EST - December 1st
  • 16:30 GMT - December 1st

This always pops up on PlayStation's social media accounts and the PlayStation Blog, so keeping an eye on both locations around the time specified is a safe bet.

Last month's games are still available to download for another week, or so, and the three PSVR games listed below are going to be available until January 2022.

Leaks and Rumours

The three main titles for PS Plus is December 2021 has apparently leaked once again. This comes from a trusted source, Dealabs, that has a track record of leaking the monthly releases. For December, the games are suspected to be;

  • Godfall
  • Mortal Shell
  • LEGO DC Super Villains

This has drawn a very mixed reaction from PlayStation fans. Godfall was a PS5 launch title meaning that many who wanted to play it, already have. As for Mortal Shell, the Enhanced Edition of the game has just gone into Xbox Game Pass, leaving PlayStation owners feeling like they're getting a shorter deal with the base game heading into PS Plus.

Finally, LEGO DC Super Villains is the only game to have an outright positive response, primarily due to previous LEGO titles performing well when they've featured on the service. Many players wouldn't go out of their way to buy a LEGO game, so offering them for free via PS Plus is a win-win situation for all.

There are no VR games for December 2021 according to rumours and leaks.
