PlayStation Plus’ free games for Extra and Premium subscribers have been announced for December 2022.
This month’s games for the basic Essential tier are already available for claim now (the Mass Effect Legendary Edition trilogy, Biomutant and divine knockout). Now we know which free games will be available to mid and top tier subscribers later this month.
PS Plus Extra, the mid-tier that gives you access to a library of hundreds of PS4 and PS5 games to download (with all PS4 games working on PS5, sometimes with enhancements), once again has the vast majority of add-ons this month.
