Persona 5 Strikers, Dirt 5, and Deep Rock Galactic are the PlayStation Plus free games for January 2022, according to Sony.
These three games, which were announced on the PlayStation blog, will be accessible from Tuesday, January 4 until Tuesday, February 1, and are the first PlayStation Plus games of the year.
Persona 5 Strikers is a spin-off for the PlayStation 4 that stars Persona 5’s Phantom Thieves and follows up a few months after the original game’s ending (sorry, Persona 5 Royal fans!). Instead of turn-based combat, Persona 5 Strikers focuses on combo-driven hacking and slashing, which is akin to, but not exactly to, a musou game.
The second game on the list is Dirt 5, which brings driving lovers all over the world for an “amplified off-road racing experience.” Dirt 5 includes a full career mode, four-player split-screen, online multiplayer, a Playgrounds creator mode, and more. It also includes a full career mode, four-player split-screen, online multiplayer, a Playgrounds creator mode, and more.
Deep Rock Galactic, a 1-4 person co-op FPS for PS4 and PS5, completes the PlayStation Plus trio for January 2022, and boasts “badass space Dwarves, 100% destructible terrain, procedurally-generated caves, and unending waves of alien enemies.”
