Last month was a solid month for free PS Plus games - Hell Let Loose was a Day One release and PGA 2K21 is far from a bad game. However, it looks like PlayStation is upping the ante a little with this month's announcement. Here's everything you need to know about the new PS Plus games and the release date they've been given.
CONFIRMED - November 2021 games confirmed
PlayStation has just revealed next month's PS Plus line-up; November 2021 is another good month for the service and the leaks were right!
- Knockout City (PS5)
- Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning (PS4)
- First Class Trouble (PS5/PS4)
That's not all though, we're also getting PSVR games, right? Here's what PSVR titles are coming to PS Plus next month:
- The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners (PSVR)
- The Persistence (PSVR)
- Until You Fall (PSVR)
The November 2021 PS Plus games are going to be available from November 2nd to download and keep, as long as you have an active PS Plus membership! The PSVR titles are going to be around until January 3rd.
PlayStation confirms one leak through State of Play
We know yesterday's State of Play wasn't the most mind-blowing presentation we've seen PlayStation pull off, but there was some interesting news to come out of it. One thing, in particular, was the reveal of First Class Trouble, a game that was leaked as one of November 2021's PS Plus games.
First Class Trouble was given a release date and confirmation that it would be launching on that release date as a PS Plus title for both PS4 and PS5 players. It's a social deception game that looks a lot like Among Us with more buttons and knobs, but that doesn't mean it'll be bad.
" 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!"
This confirmation would also suggest that the several games discussed below are also going to be announced and confirmed as PS Plus games later today. Keep your eyes peeled.
DOWNLOAD TIME - When will we be able to play them?
Hell Let Loose, Mortal Kombat X, and PGA 2K21 are set to be replaced by November 2021's PS Plus games - when they're announced - at the following times:
- 03:00 November 2nd PST
- 06:00 November 2nd EST
- 11:00 November 2nd BST
The changing of the games is always on the first Tuesday of the month - for future reference - and shouldn't be delayed like the announcement.
We don't know what we're getting yet, and we might have to wait a little longer than originally expected. Here's everything you need to know about why...
DELAYS? - New State of Play announced
PlayStation has announced a new State of Play presentation for October 27th - the same day as the next PS Plus announcement - and this means we might see the November 2021 announcement delayed by 24 hours.
We've seen this sort of thing before - sometimes we get PS Plus news during the State of Play, sometimes it's just delayed to avoid cluttering up the new announcements. Either way, it looks like we'll be waiting another day to learn what free games we can expect to play in November.
The PS Plus announcement should drop at the same time - which is as follows - on October 28th...
- 08:30 PST
- 11:30 EST
- 16:30 BST
ANNOUNCEMENT TIME - When does the news drop?
UPDATE: This information is unconfirmed - however, presumed accurate until we know more.
PlayStation is in the loose habit of announcing their PS Plus games at the same time each month - unless that month ends on a strange day of the week, or if there's a new PlayStation-hosted broadcast scheduled in the next few days.
Thankfully, at the moment, neither of these situations apply. This means we should see the PS Plus announcement for November 2021 drop at the following times:
- 08:30 October 27th PST
- 11:30 October 27th EST
- 16:30 October 27th BST
PlayStation usually makes their PS Plus announcements on the last Wednesday of the month at the times above - they should keep to their schedule this month, but we'll keep this updated with the latest news and any delays.
