Chomp your way to the top of the food chain, stave off a Maya apocalypse, and explore new lands with next month’s PlayStation Plus lineup.


PlayStation Plus starts 2021 with a bang. PlayStation Plus members will receive two PS4 titles – action adventure Shadow of the Tomb Raider and action RPG Greedfall – on Tuesday January 5. On the same day, PlayStation 5 owners with a PlayStation Plus membership can play a terrifying apex predator in the open world (sea?) RPG Maneater*.

Let’s take a closer look at the games.

Maneater* (PS5 version)

Experience the ultimate power fantasy as the apex predator of the seas – a terrifying shark! Maneater is a single player, open world action RPG (ShaRkPG) where you are the shark. Starting as a small shark pup you are tasked with surviving the harsh world while eating your way up the ecosystem. To do this you will explore a large and varied open world encountering diverse enemies – both human and wildlife. Find the right resources and you can grow and evolve far beyond what nature intended, allowing the player to tailor the shark to their play style. Eat. Explore. Evolve.

  • Excellent month. It is pretty rare to see an RPG in the monthly line up so i’m chuffed. I plan to download all three games. When does the PS+ Collection for the PS5 get updated?

  • I have a question. The base version of Shadow Of te Tomb Raider doesn’t exist anymore but just the Definitive Edition on all platforms. Does that mean they gonna give us the Definitive Edition or they gonna resurrect the old base version and make us buy its DLCs?

    Great month anyway. Thanks.

    • Yes they’re making you buy the DLCs.That’s how Plus works,for us to get a Complete Edition of a gama it would have to be a Sony game.

  • Pretty good month.

  • Aww too bad bout Maneater. Good thing i didn’t buy Greedfall yet. Always tempted whenever it went on sale this past couple of months.

  • Excellent lineup, Adam. Thrilled about all three games. Can’t wait to begin playing them.

  • ¡Great month!, thanks

  • Glad I held out on buying greedfall. Looks like it paid off!

  • Nice. I did want to play the latest tomb raider and maneater.

  • The techno manger was awesome and spiders made greed fall as well

  • Sweet! All games I was interested in but never pulled the trigger on buying. Nice way to start off 2021

  • If there is a game added to PS Now, it will be free on PS Plus within 4 months. I don’t get why we keep paying for both and see them recycle titles. Sadness 🥺

  • Who is a Plus and Now member is always undermined, both games have played on Now, this is not the first time they have done this, more careful with the choices. Just Cause 4 was the same :( and Farming Simulator 19 was the same, and both services made it clear that I lost the game through Plus :( Playstation Portugal never solved my problem :(.

  • Let me down AGAIN!!! 🤦🏽‍♂️ playstation plus has been giving wack games not to be mean or anything but I just haven’t been feeling these games

  • If we still can not add ps5 titles to our library in ma going to be really annoyed. As I have not been able to get. Ps 5 due to the bots and the crappy launch add to that the ps now titles Sony is proper screwing us. I won’t be renewing ps now. Sony sort out the library situation it’s unfair given we can get the system due to your sales methodology.

  • eh this month not for me then but that’s ok.

  • I just wish they gave us better games for the start of the year at least. They just haven’t been giving good games lately. Anyone agree?

  • Too bad I have those, for the the sixth month in a row.

    • Sixth month in a row huh? You’re a liar because Bugsnax and Worms Rumble were made free the same day they released so it was impossible that you owned them already

    • Let’s add Fall Guys to that as well since that came out less than 6 months ago so you couldn’t have already owned that one either.

    • You uh, know those aren’t the only games that came out for Plus on those months right? As if they even count.

  • This is like the third month that I own every free game they give us. But I’m not mad I’m glad people can experience the games I enjoy for free

  • Great! Two games that were already available on PS Plus, (and finished by the way) and one that looks fun but only for the few who managed to get a PS5. Boooooo!! Boo, Sony, boo!!

  • The only game i was excited for is Maneater and I can’t even play it because I can’t get my hands on a PS5. How cool is that?!
    Playstation can you please consider making Maneater available in both the PS4 and PS5 versions.
    I have waited months for PS+ games to come out that i haven’t already played or bought and when it finally happens, i can’t even get access to game. Disappointing to say the least.

  • Not bad. Maneater is a funny easy platinum and Greedfall was supposed to be pretty good.
    Not interested in Tomb Raider of the Shadow though lol, much like the last time you stuck a garbage Crystal Dynamics Tomb Raider reboot failure game on Plus.

  • dang I just got Maneater

  • For SoTR (Shadow of the Tomb Raider), is it the complete edition or regular?

  • My Plus expires today. Been pretty happy on GamePass. I hear PlayStation might get something like it soon. Fingers crossed.

  • Well guess not getting anything from is plus this month

  • Mercenary09 shut up no one cares what u say mind ur own damn business we all have different opinions and frankly I agree with some of the people u practically yelled at for example I got man eater months before this and also I agree with the fact that we haven’t been getting that good of ps plus games lately the only good one would be rocket arena

  • Sorry, you may not access this content

    Have to go to you tube.
    Disappoints and is just a general let down.
    Use the app, don’t use the app.

  • Sorry, PhadedWun, or would you prefer FadedOne###. Stop trolling and just admit it’s a lackluster offering.

  • Oh boy, just now I realize that we are going to start to receive ps5 games on ps+.
    Nice lineup, btw.

  • Now THIS is a lineup. Been wanting to play Greedfall, and I’ve played the first 2 Tomb Raiders, so both are solid picks for me. While I understand that Sony wants to incentivize people to upgrade to the new hardware, especially with stock shortages and the high cost to get a new console out of the gate with a pandemic STILL going on, I’m not sure why you didn’t just make Man Eater cross platform, particularly since most of what’s currently playable on a PS5 are PS4 titles ANYWAY.

    Still, that is just a nitpick. I’m happy with the 2 games that I’ll be able to play, and I hope future monthly games are just as stellar.

  • Another month to skip, Sony you’re really going downhill with some of these games you’re putting up

  • It would be nice if I could find a PS5 to play them on.

  • All Good except for the man eater just for ps5… should work too for ps4. Not our problem that have low stock to buy them ;)

  • Just wondering about the ETA on the Cyberpunk Refunds?

  • Meh. Comments show a lot of people are happy with this. That’s something. Personally I am not going to re-up my ps plus sub for this sh*t.

  • So all users pay the same amount of money each month for PS PLUS but PS5 users get the extra benefit of an extra game? doesn’t seem very fair???

  • Pretty cool line up, was thinking of getting Maneater in the sales.

  • Btw is sony run by autistic company? Cuz ps5… Yeah its not yet available in alot of countries because its always out of stock and yet the ps5 will never be restocked normally until march.
    Bruh the ones who run ps monthly games should get a hard slap cuz he deserves it

  • Good line up but it’s kind of dirty that they’d add SOTTR when it was a part of the holiday sale already. Surely they would have known people would be buying it from the sale before they made it free. I’ve bought games before that went up for free months later, but putting this game up like a week after the sale started (and is still on going) just seems a little sneaky. It was only $20 though, so it’s not that bad I suppose.

  • Greedfall I already played on PSnow (that service was a bad investment for sure). The game isn’t great but it’s fun enough that I can recommend it. Tombraider has been everywhere I guess. It’s good but old, if it had the DLC included it was a nice title, but it isn’t.
    Man Eater doesn’t score well but I’m going to try it for a few minutes to see if I like it.

  • Thank you PlayStation for everything you’ve done.
    Today I completed 20 years of playing with PlayStation consoles.

  • Wow this must be some sort of delusion,Sony caring about the start of the year for Plus…ha y’all are really starting 2021 with a bang damn,great lineup.The spotlight goes to Greedfall that’s one I had in ma doubt zone so getting it on Plus is truly great like a gift ha,would’ve been nice to get Maneater for PS4 since I want it digital but oh well…not even bothering with PS5 version.

  • Oh right, like such a game as Maneater shouldn’t be for both platforms. God Sony sucks. Anyone who blindly supports Sony sucks. Unbelievable.

  • Yeah, there’s a lot of people in this world that believe anything companies do is perfectly fine. Anything.

  • I know you’re talking about PS4 but yes their lack of respect for old fans and systems (PS3 and Vita) is making me consider to not buy a PS5 and quit gaming.

  • I would suggest going PC for your primary platform instead of any console. You’ll thank yourself later.

  • I literally JUST purchased Shadow of The Tomb Raider (Definitive Edition) on November 30th.

  • Thank you PlayStation, I so wanted gredfall

  • Puxa, comprei o Rise of Tomb Raider 2 dias antes de anunciarem que ele seria dado na PSplus. Vocês bem que poderiam aplicar a mesma politica do Maneater. Nem quero reembolso, pode ser o desconto no valor do game para eu comprar o God of war. Ficaria muito grato. 🤞🏽

  • yeah thats a very good month.
