Happy holidays! The new year is just days away, and with it comes some new freebies from Sony. So without further ado, there is the next line-up of PlayStation Plus free games January 2022 available for download on Tuesday, January 4.
For the PS4, there’s Persona 5 Strikers, an action RPG featuring a crossover between Atlus’ Persona 5 RPG elements and the hack and slash elements of Koei Tecmo’s Dynasty Warriors franchise. Taking place several months following the events of Persona 5, the protagonist Joker is transported to an alternate version of Tokyo filled with dangerous shadows.
Next, there’s Dirt 5 available for both the PS4 and PS5. This off-road racing game includes a weather system based on the seasons as players compete in various locales across the globe, as well as introduces four-players splitscreen and a narrative-focused career mode.
Lastly, for both the PS4 and PS5, there’s Deep Rock Galactic, a co-op first-person shooter. Players explore procedurally generated caves while working together in teams of up to four in PvE combat.
All three PlayStation Plus free games January 2022 titles have Platinum trophies to unlock.
Among them, Dirt 5 is perhaps the easiest to unlock. The game includes two online trophies which are quick to get and do not require boosting. Due to some grinding in order to drive a total of 1,000 miles, the Platinum will require around 25 hours.
The platinum for Persona 5 Strikers is also not particularly difficult, though will require a lot of grinding and around 60 hours of gameplay.
Since Deep Rock Galactic is new to the PlayStation, it is still yet unknown how easy or difficult the Platinum will be. However, just from looking at the trophy list, it appears to include a few trophies that may be difficult to unlock without boosting.
