October 2021 was a good month for PS Plus games - Hell Let Loose, PGA 2K21, and Mortal Kombat X were on offer. They're not bad games, but it looks like November 2021's PS Plus line-up is going to be a little better. PlayStation has confirmed what we're getting and this is what you need to know.
FULL LINE UP - PlayStation confirms next month's games
- Knockout City (PS5)
- Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning (PS4)
- First Class Trouble (PS5/PS4)
In addition to these three games, we're also getting three PSVR games! These are as follows:
- The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners (PSVR)
- The Persistence (PSVR)
- Until You Fall (PSVR)
Next month's PS Plus games are going to be available from November 2nd through until the end of the month. The PSVR titles are going to be around until January 3rd.
PlayStation confirms one leak through State of Play
Yesterday's State of Play presentation was a mixed bag - it was full of third-party games as expected but a lot of them were less than Triple-A titles. There wasn't anything mind-blowing, which is a shame, but some interesting new titles were talked about.
One of those is First Class Trouble - a game you might recognise in the leak below. PlayStation has confirmed that this social deception game - which looks as though it plays like Among Us - is coming to PlayStation as a PS Plus release for both PS4 and PS5.
" Welcome aboard the Alithea, a luxurious state-of-the-art space cruiser, where nothing is what it seems. Cue ominous music. What began as a relaxing vacation to outer space has erupted into a full-blown A.I. uprising, and those “friendly servants” who’ve been providing bottomless champagne are now trying to kill you!"
We don't know about the rest of the leak, but this bodes well for it. We should see the remaining titles confirmed later.
When can we play next month's games?
We know we're still waiting on the announcement, but when can we actually download and play November 2021's PS Plus games - whatever they may end up being?
The current slate of PS Plus games leave the service on November 2nd and the next set of games are set to replace them instantly. With this in mind, we should be able to play download and play November 2021's PS Plus games from the following times:
- 03:00 November 2nd PST
- 06:00 November 2nd EST
- 11:00 November 2nd BST
This month, we're expecting one PS5 title, two PS4 titles, and three PSVR games - in celebration of the headset's 5th Anniversary.
PSVR Games Included for Anniversary
PlayStation has also announced that they're including three extra PSVR games with PS Plus in November 2021, to celebrate five years since the headset was released.
We don't know what the games will be just yet, but we wouldn't be surprised if they are some of the system's most popular games.
We also know that the games won't replace any other free games for the month. The three PSVR games will be in addition to the one PS5 game and two PS4 games we usually get.
We assume that the PSVR games will be revealed alongside the monthly PS Plus games later in the month.
PS Plus November 2021 Leaks & Rumours
For now, there have been no leaks for the PS Plus November 2021 free games lineup.
That being said, there will almost certainly be some between now and when they're revealed, as there tends to be every month.
It won't have been officially revealed, but we'll likely know the lineup by the time we reach the second to last week of October.
As soon as some leaks and rumours start to surface, we'll be sure to update you right here.
As what we expect to be included this month, it's tough to say. However, we have some ideas.
Once good way to predict the monthly PS Plus games is to look at what games are due to release on the same day as the free lineup.
In November 2021, there are no high enough profile games due to release on that day - which isn't a surprise with Call of Duty Vanguard out that week - so it's tough to predict.
If we were betting people, we'd punt on Jurassic Park Evolution is one of the free PS4 games, with the sequel out later in the month.
Also, it is probably time for the PS5 launch games to start being included in the free games. We wouldn't be surprised to see the like of Godfall and Sackboy: A Big Adventure to be included with PS Plus in the next few months, maybe starting in November.
We'll circle back around to these predictions in a couple of weeks to see whether we were right or not.
