  • Just Cause 4! Sweet! I also really wanted to try Rocket Arena so this is a great month! I tried the Worms Rumble open beta and didn’t really get into it but perhaps I’ll give it another shot!

  • As soon as I saw Worms Rumble was coming out on the 1st I knew it would be free on PS5. Solid lineup this month.

  • September, 2 PS Now games…. October 1 PS Now game… November 2 PS Now games.. December 1 PS Now game. As a subscriber to both Now and Plus on PS4 i have gotten in the past 4 months from Plus.. 1 old NFS and 1 worthless game (Rocket Arena). I have been with PS Plus since day 1 and never missed day… I am not subscribing again, absolute JOKE!

    • no one cares

    • i agree with schalkpt

    • September, not everyone has PS Now…October, Not everyone has PS Now…November…not everyone has PS Now, December….you see the trend here or should i say it again?!

    • Maybe don’t subscribe to both. Theres always going to be a risk of doubling up on games.

    • No one cares because you haven’t said anything that’s even close to being something worthy of caring about.

      All I see is, someone who is moaning because some of the 24 games you get for your cash, are available via PS Now which they pay for as well.

      GUDGER Could ya pop back next year and tell us about the games you got with the money saved on PS subscription fees?

    • I got a playstation card so I get free PSN credit when I use my credit card to pay for bills and neccessities. Adds up when you are paying thousands of dollars of bills. Like property taxes that’s an easy $8 in credit.

      I also get a $30 statement credit so PS Plus is like $30. I ain’t too worried about it. Plus I get rewards faster for spending on the PSN, and buying PS Now cheap on the PSN. So… I paid like $75 for both for a year. Worth it IMO.

    • Not everyone has playstation now

    • Hollow knight was free last month and it is absolutely amazing.

  • I’m happy for Just Cause 4 (not really into multiplayer).

  • I don’t like this. I have turned off auto-renew on my ps plus subscription because of how many months like these we’ve had. What ever happened to the games that were over 70 metacritic?

    • You have no idea what you’re talking about troll. Every game we got this past month as above a 70 metacritic and that has been the case for most months. Worms Rumble doesn’t even have a score on there because it isn’t out yet.

    • Mercenary09, what are you talking about? Just Cause 4 has a 65 Metacritic score and Rocket Arena has a 67. So, they are correct. Next time use your brain or at least your fingers before you call someone a “troll”.

    • @CountJL Maybe if you would learn how to read you’d see you’re the one in the wrong. I said this past month as in November. Hollow Knight, Bugsnax, and Middle Earth all have good scores. The original comment was saying we get games with below a 70 all the time on PS+ which I pointed out as false. I said nothing about the December games other than the fact that Worms has no score yet.

    • Well if it’s any consolation JC4 is rated 70 for XO lol ;)

    • Re: Mercenary09, CountJL. If we’re going by wording, Mercenary is technically right. This “past-month”‘s games Hollow Knight (87) and Shadow of War (75) and Bugsnax (74) are all over 70.

      October was actually the only month this year where we had no games with more than a 70 metacritic score (Vampyr 70, NFS Payback 61).

      It does look like 6 months out of the past 11 have given us one game with less than 70, but each of these months also offered a game with more than 70 metacritic score:

      January (Goat Simulator 58, Uncharted Collection 86)

      February (The Sims 4 66, Bioshock Collection 84, Firewall Zero Hour 79)

      March (Sonic Forces 57, Shadow of The Colossus 91),

      May (Farming Simulator 64, Cities Skyline 81)

      July (Erica 69, Rise of the tomb Raider 88, NBA 2K20 78)

      October (Need for Speed Payback 61 and Vampyr 70).

      The average score for PSPlus games from January-November is 77.

      Anyways, happy Thanksgiving!

    • Props for doing the research on that one RoyalRamen

    • Wow imagine playing or judging games based on the scores of media.Guess lotta brainless who do that lol.

  • Nothing that tickles my fancy, I’m afraid, but good on people who enjoy these games.

    When will the PS Now games be announced?

  • Great like always! Big like!

  • Very happy with Just Cause 4. I got it for free on epic but couldn’t play it because my GPU was too bad and old. So was hoping it would turn up on PS Plus. I have a backlog of good games to play on PS Plus now with Rise of tomb raider, Shadow of War, Need for Speed Payback and now this so that’s great very happy.

  • All friends I have that where already Playstation since PS3, only 1 has Plus. From all who started later or like me swapped from Xbox, have Plus.

    And if then also often both games are from same Genre, not really appealing. Like the month earlier this year with 2 shooters. Then was another month begin of Summer. And now Worms and Rocket Arena.

    And to see here the comments, good to know not to take Playsation Now.

  • Rocket Arena is fun in short bursts. Too much grinding for the Platinum. Should have been F2P.

    At least the Playerbase will get a lift again.


    Just Cause 4 an Worms Rumble makes it a good month.

  • What trash, another ps now game,and now they are giving away EA play games AGAIN. Really supportive of the loyal customers that subscribe to the three services…not

    • PS Now and EA Play have like a few million subscribers at the most. So Sony should just ignore the 50 million PS+ subscribers as to not make those few million people feel bad? Nah I don’t think so. Get over it.

  • Horrible game selection again Sony maybe you guys should do a survey or something to improve the quality of games I feel like a paid for a year of trash PS plus games

    • Maybe it’s your opinion that is trash because the games that have been on PS+ this past year sure aren’t that. If you want brand-new AAA releases then go buy them. You aren’t going to get the new COD and Cyberpunk on PS+ at launch.

  • Incoming crybabies in 3..2..1…oh wait they’re already here. 🤣

  • Boooo…. “Merry” XMAS from Sony again… :D

  • So no PS5 games already? Just sporadically to give us the classic misdirection then? Just for a minute there I thought I might actually get something out of this service other than online, since I’m more inclined to try games for PS5. Don’t care about PS4 games being playable on PS5 (except for Cyberpunk 2077).

    • Worms Rumble is a PS5 game if you would read. It’s on both systems. It’s not just a PS4 game that is playable on PS5.

    • Didn’t realize it was a new one. Is this the first Worms that’s real time btw? In any case, hope to see at least one PS5 title every month.

    • Yes this is the first real time Worms game. That’s actually why I’m interested in it when I normally don’t care about those games.

  • Hey PlayStation You’re forgetting something Don’t forget to add Dreams the game for ps4 on playstation plus please 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  • Just Cause 4 is awesome! Not much of a a Worms fan, and I have never played Rocket Arena. Good month overall it seems!

  • Seeing JC4 on there brings a smile to my face. Good thing I held off on it for so long :D

  • Just cause 4 seems ok, but over all this is a pretty terrible month. I expected more from December.

  • I like it when one of the games is a new release. This is how it should be.

  • garbage selection, how sad to spend December with these medium games

    • lol How are these games garbage? What games did you expect Sony to add as a bonus to PS+? These games are good and if you want great games, go buy them.

    • I think it’s more sad that you depend on Plus to play games…at least that’s what your comment makes one think.

    • What’s sad is that people get excited to play another team multiplayer shooter that’s exactly the same as any other, an atrocious worms version that doesn’t do any other to the original, and just cause 4… a game that I can’t really understand where the fun is at, played 3 and though it was idiotic.

  • Poor again but they’ll be added to the list in my library just incase I don’t feel like watching rust form

    • Amen.. I hear that. They should give us a choice of many games,.not just the usual FPS or horror games. I’d say in the last 12 months there’s maybe 2 games that I really enjoyed, that I didn’t already own..

    • Just to say they did try something like that where you pick the game out of three by voting it failed as everyone complained the game they voted for lost or the game that won was really bad

  • Now I can finally finish Just Cause 4 since the PS now selection for this has expired.

  • This lineup is pretty good like August imo. Just Cause 4 is like the MW2 Remaster. I had no intentions of getting that game but I was excited to get it free. Putting new games with a focus on multiplayer like Fall Guys and Worms Rumble every once in a while seems like a smart move. I’m not very interested in Worms or Rocket Arena tbh, but with JC4, Hollow Knight from this month, and the games I’m currently playing I’ll easily keep busy until January. I wasn’t super impressed with the Black Friday sales personally so I think I’m gonna hold off and see what December brings.

  • It’s a meh month. Nothing really excites me.

  • Happy with Just Cause 4. That Works game is just terrible. They’re clearly trying to cash in on the goofy Battle Royale fad. Hard pass.

  • Just cause is a decent game …and I got it already on playstation now … But the rest of the line up … are Trash … Come on … Where are the big name triple a titles … Or another great indie game … Like last months hollow knight …this month is very disappointing

    • I’m glad you already know how the new Worms game is when you haven’t even played it yet.

    • Mercenary09
      Do you really need to play it to know how it will be? What are you? 10?
      It’s like any deathmatch game in the market.
      I played the original Worms back then, and after Worms 2 everything that came out with that name was trash, this newer version is the very bottom

  • Oh god no. Not more worms games.

    I really wish the monthly games would be a choice of several games.
    For example, I’m allowed 2 games this month.. here are 6 to choose from. Whichever ones I don’t choose, i am not forced to choose from them again in the future.. or just give me £40 in psn store credit.. something like that.
    For so many month I have added to my library the offerings from psn+, but I don’t play them. Maybe offer games that have something to do with the previous games I’ve played.

  • Off topic slightly, but can you add communities back on my XMB for PS5?
    I was expecting PS5 to be all the PS4 was, but faster and more features. Not less. But the listen to Spotify while streaming is a nice feature.

    • That’s the new idea don’t you see?…paying for less lol.PS4 too was and still is less than what PS3 was,I’m not surprised they messed up with PS5 cuz Sony loves to disappoint.

    • I mean, the PS5 doesn’t even have a browser… or folders… or themes…

      Then again the PS4 couldn’t play CDs or SACDs or do deep color when the PS3 could…

      The PS6 will probably just be a swirly circle that they forgot to add a game playing feature to… 😂

    • It has a Web browser of sorts not a app one but there is a form of browser

  • would like to see the blog do a post of what released on the store each week with prices. if you can’t reimplement it on the store or scee refuses to allow scea to reimplement it for Americas & Asia to make it easier to search the store since. also it makes the store look like it is barely updated at all now even on console. and trying to find anything on the ps5, web, and mobile/app versions of the store is too simplified to even find the free content, dlc, and extras that released that week or month. also the web store when logged in and having an active ps+ account it acts like you don’t have ps+ when trying to pull up the ps+ collection.

  • Just Cause 4 is a great title that I did not actually own, very worth it, hope you got something up your sleeve for Christmas

  • One more thing, PS Blog should be in-app, I have to login everytime I want to comment.

  • When is PlayStation going to step up and support their current PS4 players and help them gain access to getting a new PS5. They should offer each account holder to buy one system from the PlayStation Store like they did once before released them to the retailer, and if someone already has one then they can’t get it thru their store..
    As we can all see, trying to get it thru a retailer like Walmart is next to impossible because of all the scalpers working the retailers sites, one such scalper group has purchased more the 3,000 consoles in the last two weeks with PlayStation knows about. We all know that this will continue thru the holiday season unless the become more available thru the PlayStation Store where they can control one console per account and making Christmas happier for the kids.

    • I don’t really care about PS5 because the supposed next-gen looks extremely dull but hey that’s a great idea to solve the current problem with PS5.

    • The next gen doesn’t really look dull… it just doesn’t look like it’s even happened yet…

      The launch games were a PS4 title and cross platforms. Then what’s coming next isn’t much of anything.

      I guess in a year or so there might actually be some PS5 games. But the “next gen” seems to have arrived 1-2 years before any “next gen” games actually did.

  • I dont mind just cause 4 but i found it incredibly boring. I know it’s sacrilege to dare say that I’m kind of disappointed in this months titles. And yes they are free games but that doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to voice an opinion. It’s fine though not everyone is going to be excited for new free games. I did expect better. Rocket arena just doesn’t fit my play style and have no interest in any worms games. I’ll have to pass. I was hoping for any of the DMC games but it is what it is. Enjoy the free games.

    • You are allowed to voice your opinion, because you are paying customer. PS+ is just paywall for online multiplayer and these “free” games are just their sorry excuse. Online play should be FREE and those who want such stellar lineup could pay for them. I wonder how many would actually pay…

    • @ Argonark – Sorry excuse?…hmm you do know the free games were on Plus long before we had to pay for online play right?

    • There never were any “free” games. Random picks that are generally terrible doesn’t make the games free if you’re paying to get them.

      But yes, online should be free, as it’s free for Sony in non Sony hosted games (which is basically everything). They don’t pay third parties to host games, or us to host P2p games. So why should we pay them?

      Paying Sony so I can use my connection to host a game after using Capcom’s matchmaking service is ridiculous. 😂

  • Can we expect a PS5 upgrade/improvement patch for Just Cause? Soon?

  • Wasn’t Just Cause 4 a ps plus game already? Like maybe a year ago its already in my plus list

  • Just Cause 4, I’ll give it a look ;)

  • it is a shame that they are not able to enable 120fps on PS4 titles to play on PS5. Xbox Series X has no problem with that, the only thing you achieve is to achieve a disadvantage in titles that have crossplay, like Black Desert.

  • Do we know what’s happening with the PlayStation Plus Collection? Is there anymore games going to be added or was that it?

  • Interesting line up. Something to kill time . :)

  • realemte de los peores meses en el servicio la verdad que juegos tan malos

  • A lot of PS Plus monthly games these days have been on PS NOW. In my opinion they should merge NOW into PS Plus. Not only will it attract more subscribers to Plus, but it’ll also serve to lessen the naming confusion for the general public.

  • Live the worms games so well up for giving Rumble a go and just cause 4 should be great on ps5.

  • Hmm guess can say you cared a bit about Christmas for getting us Just Cause 4,great offer but Rocket Arena really?…ha a lame attempt at copying Overwatch that flopped and now EA wants to throw it at us PS playas LMAO this game was $5 in the 1st week of its release,can’t help but laugh at EA trying hard asf to copy games…at least they succeeded with apex legends but that obviously ain’t nough for them.Worms always have been a meh game,so yep it’s just Just Cause 4 this month.

    Can’t really complain about getting crap for free though I guess since they’re the ones I wouldn’t pay for.

  • If only I didn’t sell my PS4 not knowing the PS5 would sell out in 2 seconds. Smh.

  • Will there be future pre order opportunities from playstation to purchase a PS5 console. Bots are really making things look bad.

  • I’m waiting on the PS5 to be in stock

  • Will there be support added for USB dacs for uac 2?….
    @sony @playstation ?

  • I’m Saad250_Alghamdi

  • My mates from highschool and I still play Liero (old DOS game) online every weekend. Hopefully Worms will be essentially Liero 3D! Anyone else remember Liero?
