PlayStation has just confirmed the next month's batch of PS Plus games - here's everything you need to know after yesterday's State of Play presentation and the confirmation of First Class Trouble. It's safe to say that November 2021's line-up is varied, to say the least.

CONFIRMED - Full November 2021 PS Plus games line-up
Next month we're getting our hands on the following PlayStation games with PS Plus:
- Knockout City (PS5)
- Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning (PS4)
- First Class Trouble (PS5/PS4)
In addition to these, though, a few PSVR games are on offer to celebrate the headset's fifth anniversary! These are...
- The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners (PSVR)
- Persistence (PSVR)
- Until You Fall (PSVR)
The above games are going to be available with an active PS Plus membership from November 2nd. The PSVR games will be part of your subscription until January 3rd, giving you a little more time to grab them. It's certainly not the worst month we've ever seen.
First Class Trouble has been confirmed
First Class Trouble, the first leaked title for PS Plus' November 2021 line-up, has been confirmed during the latest State of Play presentation as a PS Plus game for PS4 and PS5 owners.
This social deception game is like Among Us at its core, but there are quite a few bells and whistles Among Us doesn't have. It should be a great multiplayer party game to get stuck into.
" 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!"
The confirmation of First Class Trouble would suggest that the other leaked titles are also accurate and should be confirmed later today.
Is this month's announcement delayed?
We mentioned the possibility of a State of Play presentation and jinxed it. Another PlayStation presentation - a State of Play about third-party titles, specifically - is going to be broadcast on the same day as the November 2021 PS Plus announcement.
This could mean the next PS Plus announcement is pushed back 24 hours - unless we get news about November 2021's PS Plus games during the presentation. Either way, it's unlikely to be announced before the State of Play presentation.
You can tune into this broadcast, though, at the following times:
- 14:00 October 27th PST
- 19:00 October 27th EST
- 22:00 October 27th BST
Following this, the next PS Plus announcement is expected at the revised time of:
- 08:30 October 28th PST
- 11:30 October 28th EST
- 16:30 October 28th BST
ANNOUNCEMENT - When do we find out what we're getting?
UPDATE: This is an outdated prediction based on previous months - without a State of Play presentation on the same day.
PlayStation follows a rough schedule when they announce their PS Plus games each month - as long as there isn't any upcoming State of Play presentation, we should see PlayStation make the November 2021 PS Plus announcement at the following times:
- 08:30 October 27th PST
- 11:30 October 27th EST
- 16:30 October 27th BST
PS Plus Announcement - November 2021
You'll need to tune into PlayStation on Twitter - or other social media platforms - for the announcement. They always drop on the last Wednesday of the month and around a week before the games become available.
RELEASE - When do they replace October's games?
With this in mind, then... When do we get access to the next batch of free PlayStation games from November 2021's PS Plus announcement?
Well... These are always released on the first Tuesday of the month, provided this doesn't land on the first of the month. Thankfully, November 2nd is the first Tuesday of the month - this is also the fate when October's PS Plus games are scheduled to leave the service.
This means we should see the free PlayStation games on offer available from the following times:
- 03:00 November 2nd PST
- 06:00 November 2nd EST
- 11:00 November 2nd BST
November 2021 PS Plus Games Release Date
Hell Let Loose, PGA 2K21 and Mortal Kombat X aren't bad, but PlayStation can do better... Right?
PREDICTIONS - What are we getting?
Each month, PlayStation release at least one PS5 title and two PS4 titles for free in their PS Plus promotion. It's like Games With Gold, but slightly better. With this in mind, here's what we think we might be getting...
Metro Exodus (PS5)
The third Metro game is easily the most expansive of the lot and the first one to be updated exclusively for next-gen consoles. Artyom is back for another bout with the post-apocalyptic horrors of Russia in the 2030s. This time, though, he's leaving the Moscow Metro and venturing out into the world beyond. It's a blockbuster experience that should keep you on your toes.
Gran Turismo Sport (PS4 & PSVR)
Gran Turismo Sport might be an older racing title, but with Gran Turismo 7 still coming in 2022, this might be the perfect time for PlayStation to win over the racing fans out there with a free go at the latest GT title. With all the add-ons, there's over 300 vehicles to check out and over 80 tracks. There's a lot to do with this one.
Alien Isolation (PS4)
Ridley Scott's Aliens series is easily one of the best sci-fi horror series out there and Alien Isolation is one game that captures the tense survival situations of the original movies well. The Xenomorph AI is unique in the way it hunts you and it's easy to get lost in this atmospheric experience.
PSVR BONUS - Happy 5th Anniversary, PSVR!
PlayStation's own PSVR is going to be five - soon. In an effort to celebrate PSVR's 5th Anniversary, PlayStation is throwing an additional three PSVR games into November 2021's PS Plus announcement.
As you can see below, a lot of the big-hitters are named specifically. We don't know what PSVR titles we're going to be getting, but if it's one of the following we'll be happy.
