January’s PlayStation Plus games: Maneater, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Greedfall

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)

January’s PlayStation Plus games: Maneater, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Greedfall

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.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider (PS4 game)

Fight, explore, craft and survive amid the dense and perilous jungles of South America in Lara Croft’s biggest adventure to date as you race to save the world from a Maya apocalypse. Gather resources and master the unforgiving terrain. Outgunned and outnumbered, you need to use your surroundings to your advantage; strike from the shadows and use mud to camouflage your presence. Use advanced traversal techniques to reach long-forgotten tombs and negotiate deadly puzzles

Greedfall** (PS4 game)

You’ll have complete freedom to shape your abilities, spells and skills and decide whether to complete objectives with combat, diplomacy, deception, or stealth. Forge this new world’s destiny, as you befriend or betray companions and entire factions.

 All games will be available until Monday February 1.

  • I was able to get Tomb Raider but, Greedfall is trying to charge $49.99 and I am a PS Plus member… Why is this?

    • You probably got the demo version of Tomb Raider.
      I guess someone in Sony forgot to set the games as free.
      Man… do they even test it after they made changes?
      Did they put the PSN administration in the hands of a trainee?

  • When I add these to my cart its showing their retail prices instead of free?

  • Great games this momth, but for some reason Greedfall isn’t showing up as free for me.

  • I’m about to subscribe for the first time, are those games available yet or when exactly do those change? As far as I can see it still shows the December selection on the subscription page…

    • Maybe that’s the problem. They usually don’t have it delayed when they come out free. Maybe it’s because there’s too much people that are subscribed then they expected idk trying to find a reason.

  • Why would it be trying to change me for free game this month?

  • I guess someone in Sony forgot to set the games as free.
    Man… do they even test it after they made changes?

  • You guys want us to pay $60 for online so we can play with others but make the free ps plus games we can get single player. Thats stupid Sony!

  • Great, but please Sony can you guys stop giving us the same games in PsNow and PsPlus

  • So… I have been with ps+ since the beginning. I loved it on the ps3 and the PS4 also on the vita. The fact you could add things to your download list was great it would save it for as long as you are a ps+ subscribe.
    I want a ps5 Iv tried to buy one since November as my preorder was cancelled by the company going out of business (another COVID casualty). So Iv tried my hardest. Yet I will still be getting one… one day… so why can’t I save “Maneater” for the ps5 to my library??? What is wrong with you Sony?
    I would not be in the situation if you had produced and distributed the 5 correctly.
    So to rectify this let people download the games for later…?

  • None of the titles are redeemable for free they all are asking me to pay the PlayStation store price. My subscription doesn’t end till this year in August. Why can’t I redeem the free games?

  • I have a ps plus subscription but when i try to get the new games it wants to try and sell them to me .im on ps5.

  • I am currently having issues… can’t download any of the January PS Plus games…

  • I had a rant on Twitter and @shough said…
    “You can. I didn’t realise till reading a random persons tweet today though so I’ve lost out on previous games like bugsnax etc when I finally manage to get a ps5. Anyway, just do it via the app and add it to library, that’s what I did (on Android phone)”

    So I went to the iPhone psapp and went to the store, then ps+ and now I have maneater in my library waiting for the distant day when we all have a ps5
    Spread the world and the love. Sony of you do check posts…
    Tell people they can download ps5 games that you are giving away but let us do it through the 4…

  • Spoke with Playstation support… They are aware of the issue with PS Plus titles not showing as FREE. He said it could take up to a day to resolve.

  • The free monthly games I found when I went on playstation plus two of them were for money. One actually had a price of £10,000 pounds and the other £6 +. Got to b a great error there. Other wise usualy some great games have a good day and stay safe.

  • Man eater is a underrated game. Yeah it’s not very deep when it comes to story or mechanics, but it’s fun and completely entertaining, which is all that is required of games.

  • It’s not letting me add Maneater to my account. I don’t own a PS5, but I should still be able to do this for when I do get one.

  • Sony has always gave us awesome games and that’s why am a Sony woman always will be so keep up the good job Sony

  • What is with Tomb Raider needing to be Purchased? and only working if one continues PS+?
    One of the big reasons for having Plus is the 2 Free Games a month (use to be 3+).

    Why do we keep losing, what we are paying for?

  • ASSETTO CORSA on PS plus is displaying free but when we click on it to add it to our library its shows 499 rupees to claim.don’t do that SONY remove game form ps plus or just do it free for PS plus members on PS4 its a request #justice

  • Ps4 plus games are not interesting and not diverse. Another Tomb Raider again and Greedfall is just like middle earth. The only interesting title is the shark game which is not for ps4. Now all good stuff goes to ps5. If this continues I will not renew my ps plus…

  • Can someone tell me, why I don´t see those PS4 games? I have PS Plus an no restrictions in my famlily account (I am the 15 year old daughter). When I check PS Plus I see nothing!
    I was able to download December 2020-games.
    I live in Germany.

  • WOW great games!!!

  • The Tomb Raider is garbage same spinning screen problemen as the last one unplayeble garbage not any diverent than Most games they push nada to be exited about more something for Sonny to be ashamed for and not even looking at ther store end system itself but that’s getting worsh by the day

  • It’s January 6th, 2:39 est and the new ps plus games have yet to become available on my account. Can anyone clear this up?

  • I’d rather get our 100GB cloud, instead of 1000 files cloud… It let me use only 15GB and I can’t share anything cause my upload error queue on ps5 is kinda infinite….

    • Same here they never did point out that you can only save a small amount games to the cloud before it says its full even though you have no where near hit the limit

  • Always wanted to try the shark game, can’t wait to check it out on my PS5!!

  • Hi Playstation team, I’ve been a subscriber for psplus the past few years, my account was from hongkong region.. everything was good until recently since December, ps plus free monthly games came out WITHOUT english subs version, only in chinese / korean instead.. I’m very disappointed with this since I cannot read chinese / korean, how am I supposed to enjoy the games? I hope your team read this and can have a solution about this, otherwise I’ll just stop subscribing. Thanks

  • Fix ur party system PlayStation

  • Great for Tomb Raider, but why Maneater for PS5 only? That’s only for the 20% users of the world right now :)

  • Plz make greedfall available in Middle East especially uae

  • I entered the wrong birthday and now Sony thinks I’m a child. Smh it’s 2021 figured Sony would’ve been more capable in reversing such mistakes.

    • I take back my words. It resets afterwards and will allow you to enter your birthdate again if you entered it too hastily. My bad Sony, keep up the good work.

  • Rather screwed up to put a PS4 game as free ONLY for PS5 owners, when we all pay the same to be a plus member AND Sony hasn’t kept enough PS5 stock running to let the majority of us upgrade. We have a controller and charging dock without a console because we’ll get one someday, but I refuse to pay $2000 to a bot using scalper. Guess I’m not trying Maneater. Real cool Sony… 👎

  • hi there,

    I’m having trouble getting this month’s games. When I log in into my PS Plus account the games simply won’t show up. All I can see are previous months’ games I already added to my library.

    Anyone having the same issue?


  • Not sure where to post to get this to Sony developers. Please add the option to hide games and trophy lists on player profiles on ps5 – not just from other players, but when you view your own profile as well. Our libraries are clogged and games with poor trophy support are a nightmare with those with OCD

  • As on today (Jan9), I still have no new games for January on PS4. Anyone else? It still shows the December chioces.

  • The new ps5 games look fun, eager to hop into Godfall. I’m hoping with the new batch of consoles they ask for photo and identity verification. Been trying for the longest time to get the disc version.

  • Man Eater looks sick!

  • When is gta 6 coming out?

  • I love too see old games on the ps5 like the old tomb raider and medal solid and games like that I would buy them again but in digital this time and love too find out when the next restock of ps5 still waiting in Australia

  • As of Jan 9th my ps4 still shows Dec games none of these.

  • I do have 2 of these games but not 3 because i only have a ps4…

  • Why not the dethinitive edition of the game for shadow of the tomb raider would of been better if it was that version. Overall its a great game I am willing to beat it again but will have to somehow delete older games to do it. Maneater looks decent will add it to my collection still no ps5 for me.

  • Buenas….Gracias por la informacion, es de muncha ayuda. Feliz DIA.

  • Do you guys think you can bring the old parties back I miss them I hate the new way it’s set up today. Thank you fir your time

  • For some reason, the new games do not show up in my line up of new games this month. have you had any issues with the PSplus that new games are not being shown yet?

  • Hi, does someone knows, why i dont have new free games on ps plus. I still have games from previous month. Thnx in advance

  • As of January 13th my titles haven’t changed from December.

    • lara showed up in my bought list automatically, but i had to claim greedfall n instantly with i hadn’t bothered lol

  • very poor show imho! greedfall is a sloppy mess and have we not had enough of croft yet? just more failed BS to pump sale for added content later

  • I have a PS4 Pro & I am a PS Plus subscriber. I wish I had a PS5 console with a PS Plus subscription but this is not yet possible for reasons beyond my powers.
    I am hunting however deals on websites and just hope that someday Lady Luck will smile at me and will be able to get the console.

    Now, suppose I manage to get my PS5 in August. All games made available for free, since launch, for PS5, are not available for non-PS5 owners and will not be made available for them retroactively even if they have had a valid subscription.

    I find this a bit unfair, as it is not my fault I cannot get my hands on the console(I refuse to feed ebay sharks).
    It would be fair that PS+ subscribers would still get the PS5 games in a “pending” library that would become available once the hardware requirements are met(namely, the user finally gets the console).

    Can this idea be pushed to management/team in charge of such decisions?
