  • DIRT 5 has 41 trophies to earn
    Base game has 21 trophies
    Dlc has 20 trophies.

    Persona Strikers has 47 trophies to earn.

    Deep rock Galactic has 40-60 trophies to earn.

    • So many trophies, so little time. 😭

    • Don’t care about trophies but January is a good month

    • rotf
      Trophies aren’t what they wanted them to be.. Not when you get an achievement for the basics…
      So it’s more of a record of hpw many games one buys/plays…
      It’s too bad it’s so basic & simple because they coulda done soo much more with it…

    • @ McSipp – That’s because since the PS4 gen they started to cater more to the wh*re crowd.Most devs nowadays are afraid to put out hard trophy lists or one that at least gives a challenge because a lotta so called “gamers” won’t play a game if they can’t get the plat.It’s pathetic honestly how everything got easier in the PS4 gen due to how popular gaming became.

    • 21 trophies for the base game, the rest you have to pay extra for. So why don’t you list all the trophies for all the games we can buy?

    • I was never a trophy person. i dont know what i have and it never made any difference. I spend hundreds or sometimes thousands a year for game stuff to have fun and enjoy myself. not trying to show off what I play. I get it though.. I used to play World of Warcraft and achievements were a big deal even to me.

  • Nice month this time after the Godfall debacle

  • You started good sony! Hope this will continue!
    Wonder what will be in FEBRUARY 2022 Cant 4 wait!

    Thx for great month PLAYSTATION 😁

  • I hope we get Killzone: Shadow Fall as a US PS Plus game in 2022!

    • Yet another comment about Killzone: Shadow Fall? You should’ve just bought the game when it went on sale on the PSN Store for $4.99 (which was often).

    • That game was disappointing! I actually forced myself to beat it, just in case it actually ended well. It didn’t!

      IF you actually wanted to play it, you would have purchased it during one of the numerous sales.

    • I swear I’ve seen that at Gamestop for $0.99

    • Do you think that $5 or less game will worth the value of the membership? May be you should just buy it at this point.

    • Not sure why people are getting on you. It was the first game I bought with my PS4 and I’ve wanted this to be free forever so that way the base player amount can increase. I miss Killzone multiplayer, and this is my only hope for reliving some of my favorite multiplayer memories again.

    • Killszone SHADOWfALL>?!?!
      Dude? That was a PS4 release title and i see it all the time in the super cheap bin…
      i don’t even know if the servers are still up..
      *I wont complain but if you want to play it you should just grab it for $5 bucks since odds are stacked against it coming soon…
      *You could have my copy if you were local… I played it and it was a struggle to fnish… It wasn’t even close to the Killszone i fell in love with…. to each his own i guess… Happy New Year Bro..

    • Agreed…Shadow Fall was ma 1st PS4 game just as it should be and its online is one of the most underrated ever.Returned to it last year and it’s sad to see the playerbase so dead,Warzone still is one of the best online modes ever made.Lotta casuals haven’t played Shadow Fall due to being the very 1st game of PS4,the playerbase could receive at least a temporary boost and I would love to see that but anyway it’s a shame that it was never given away on the lineup…that should’ve happened years ago but oh well Sony hates KZ.

  • At last a good month after nearly a year of disappointment

  • Rock and stone!!!!

  • Deep rock galactic remind me of BORDERLANDS SERIES 😁

  • Deep Rock Galactic / copy paste of Borderlands loved it 😀

  • persona 5 strikers !!!! im so happy!!!

  • Finally worth games to play for January month. Excellent job Sony. I’m looking forward to download these games.

  • Solid bounceback month after a lackluster Q4.

    Here’s hoping you keep it up for the remainder of 2022..

    • Nah it will go down hill from February onwards as normal due to the christmas period being over and the new users have already signed up for plus

  • 👎
    Dirt 5’s gameplay feels too slow and is very boring. Feels like they tried developing the game for all ages (5 years – up), similart to Project cars 3. WRC 9 is better, Dirt Rally is best.

    Persona seems like you need a specific persona to enjoy this game. I don’t watch the trendy Japanese anime cartoons & I’m a realist, with a different style of imagination.

    DRG – played on steam early access years ago and have moved on. I’m assuming their player base is very low, so they’re throwing this game in the trash (psplus) while they continue working on their new game.

    • DRG is averaging over 10k players on Steam, which admittedly is down from the previous month. I think you just played the game before most of the features were added and formed an opinion based on an unfinished product.

    • P5 you mean? Yeah you need To play P5

    • @alkalinetp And don’t forget that Dirt 5 is even worse on your console of choice Xbox. You left that little nugget out, you little Xbot scamp you 🤣

      Why bring up Steam though, when all you do is glorify game pass all day???

    • DRG has almost 15k players playing right now on Steam. That is not a dead game. If the last time you played was in EA then you haven’t experienced anything of what it has become.

    • 👍👏💯

    • 👍👏💯 Agreed

    • DRG is amazing. The game is filled with players since it’s cross platform between Xbox and PC. I have at least over 400 hours on it

    • And of course Andrew is here being a Sony fanboy like always. Thought he learned after our conversation, guess not

    • i agree. this month is redundant and lackluster.

    • Foxy – same here. I called him out for making up a ‘fact’ to try and win an argument. Obviously he needs help with his arguing skills, but losing credibility like that by making up a lie….. you just never can recover from that.
      He responds to me with some sort of vigor, and I’m just laughing.

  • Heard good things about Deep Space Galactic from PC players.

    Persona 5 S makes the month for me.

  • None for me this month but it’s ok I got a couple from the past few months that been keeping me busy the rare times I’ve actually had time to game lately.

  • Another P striker wow

  • And what about VR games? Or was this a one time offer?

  • Solid! Very excited to play Deep Rock Galactic as I have heard nothing but great things.

    • DRG makes this list for me!
      And while some claim this is a disappointing month, this is the first one in a while where I’m likely to play all three games. Excellent lineup! 👍

      See you in the mines.

  • More rubbish, thanks Sony. Why don’t you give us games like Red Dead 2, Oblivion, AC 1 AC 2 AC 3 ???.

    • Broaden your horizons from 15 year old games, sheesh.

    • AC3 was on Plus 9 years ago, back when Xbox was giving away ancient crap like the first Crackdown.

      Now a days, Xbots would give anything for a game like Crackdown on GWG.

    • Should be giving us pinball (made by an unskilled beginner & is only half a table), a 9-second tech demo, a merge 3 game, and for vr – water drinking simulator 1.0.

    • If they gave those games they really would be giving rubbish. I’ll take what they chose thank you.

    • @alkalinetp Nah, that sounds exactly like your pitiful games with gold offering the past 2 years.

      But thanks for the suggestion of games, the last thing PlayStation fans want to hear from a game depraved Xbot on a Playstation blog.
      Your opinion really matters here 🤣

      Since you brought VR up so desperately, what VR games are you playing on Xbox? Or how many of those ZERO Kinect games that support Backwards Compatibility on Xbox are you playing, you know, on that crappy camera you defended so much a decade ago???
      Yet PS Moves are still being manufactured to this day.

    • Probably should be selling my poopstation 5 for an xbot. I heard their controllers don’t drift and they aren’t focused on one-week story games. But, my beefy monster of a PC plays everything so much nicer. I think I’ll settle with PC, playing ps games and gamepass, completely free games from Epic, DRM-less games from GOG, free games and add-ons with Amazon Prime, Deluxe versions of ubersoft games for $15, supremely wide selection of games on my 17-year Steam account… and, who else did I leave out?

    • his “beefy rig” that has a whole igc.

  • Another disappointing month :( Hopefully 2022 will be a better year.

  • Yeesh another poor offering…..Win some, lose some 🤷‍♂️

  • I guess everyone who comments “bad month” is too busy playing Animal Doctor.

    • I guess anyone who comments “good month” is too busily involved in their sellfishness to realize that other people have a different opinion than them.

  • I’ve been a subscriber since the beginning, but man have you guys added some absolute CRAP this year. Sony will not be getting another year subscription out of me after this waste of a year. I’ll maybe buy a month if you add something good. But $60 a year so I can get a DEMO of Godfall? Deuces PlayStation Minus.

  • Thank you for P5 Strikers, and I’ll be giving Dirt 5 a spin. Happy New Year!

  • Deep Rock Galactic looks like a lot of fun.

  • Knew the lineup since last week. Pretty good month to offset the sour taste left by the Godfall demo…

  • Much better than the Godfall swindle, nicely done on a good selection this month

  • Getting tired of sports and driving/racing games that I will never play.

  • Why it’s always convoluted and nerv that simple?
    Claiming the base game will obviously block you from getting the Deluxe Edition and there is no upgrade path to the FULL Deluxe Edition.
    Deluxe Edition has (what is written on PS Store):

    Persona® 5 Strikers
    Bonus Content
    Persona Legacy BGM
    All-Out Attack Pack

    You can buy Persona Legacy BGM and All-Out Attack Pack seprataely but youc an’t get the bonus content from the Deluxe Edition which is:

    Soundtrack with over 40 songs
    Digital art book
    Behind-the-scenes video

    Why they always do this? Why don’t they allow to get the full content of Deluxe Edition or offer a full upgrade path to it but instead lock such exlcusive content to such versions and if you get the base versions, there is no way to either upgrade to the Deluxe Versions or even buy the Deluxe Version itself since they block you from doing so. This is always a total nonsense and they will never even think about having the courtesy to look into it.

  • Nothing for me this month. Oh well. Maybe next month.

  • Even though I own Deep Rock and Dirt 5 on PC I’ll definitely add them to my PS account. Both are great games and now I can get dem trophies. Strikers I do not own and it’s been on my wishlist so I am good to go for the start of the month.

  • I’ll check back in February.

  • So when is dark souls coming to ps plus?

  • Not bad but then, anything is better than Godawful last month. I’m not adding that garbage to my PSN account, even on Plus.

  • Surprisingly good. Dirt 5 is not too good, but everything else is more than enough

  • Great month this 🙌 👌. Why not make comments only available to verified ps owners so we don’t get sad, fatherless xbot saddos commenting “bad month” “pS BaD xBOt BeTteR” etc etc!!!. Ps has blown the xbox away every generation and this gen won’t be any different, crying about the inferior machine your mum bought you won’t change that!! Hoping for another banging year sony. Ps we need an official dualsense with remapping and paddles 🤞🙌

    • being a fanboy isn’t healthy dude. There’s no imaginary Xbox or PC players here trashing ps5. You Should probably grow up

  • Good month!

    Just don’t do another ‘Godfail’. The service is in massive need for a shake-up, so let’s rock 2022!

  • Three more games for me to add to my list. One day I will be able to get to these games and actually download them to my PS5.

  • This is a great lineup. Dirt 5 and P5 Strikers aren’t even that old with one being less than a year and the other being just over a year old. Deep Rock Galactic is also the best Day 1 title we’ve gotten in some time. Got great reviews on PC and Xbox.

  • Another weak selection. Where are the good single player offerings? I’ll try out the dwarves, but getting sick of this multi-player nonsense.

    • P5S is good single player offering :)

    • Welp guess u can’t please everyone. And that’s ok.

      But you should try out Persona 5 Strikers and see for yourself what’s it all about. Definitely worth some of your time if you’re looking for single player games.

      Tho u might want to play the Persona 5 Royal first or just skimmed through the story on google or youtube errrr lol? XD

  • Ow yeaaa this is my jam!
    I’m feeling it, tis gonna be my year 🤣

    Thanks, sony!

  • Great start to the New Year for 2022 Sony. Another great month for me where I don’t own any of the offerings. I look forward to Persona 5 Strikers. Maybe I’ll get back to finishing Persona 5 someday.

    The Dirt Series is great, as I’m still enjoying Dirt 4. So yes Dirt 5 is a welcome selection.

    And Deep Rock Galactic appears to be a nice selection.

    • Same here, I don’t have any of the 3 and I’m actually planning to buy P5S and Dirt 5 so yay 2022 🎉

      And you should definitely get back on Persona 5 if you haven’t finish it yet owo

  • Can we just appreciate Atlus? For the SMT and Persona franchise and also I love Catherine.

    geez they’re on the roll. Can’t wait to see what they’re going to announce during this 25th anniversary of persona 🎉

  • Decent month but I’m over here still playing portal knights that became free back in 2019 (completely underrated game)

    • It is, I really enjoyed it. I think we need Portal Knights 2 that expands on everything. I felt it just needed a bit more to make it a deeper experience with larger maps.

  • Wow, these are some great games!! Just bought my son GT Sport and WRC10 along with a wheel and wheel stand for Christmas. Dirt 5 will do nicely! Thanks Sony!

    • I read somewhere that they’re making a spiritual successor to portal knights. (Sorry I don’t post here often)

  • Whoever decided/managed to get the games for this month?? Put them in charge every single month the rest of the year. Whoever was responsible for the laughable games that were December should be fired and blacklisted from this industry forever.

    • That person’s name is Adam Michel.

    • He’s from London. He lied on his linkedin. He says he “delivers” to players. He also mentions engagement and subscriber growth.
      Seems obvious he is failing hardcore and will probably change jobs AGAIN.

      Global Content Lead for PlayStation Services
      Apr 2019 – Sep 20212 years 6 months

      London, United Kingdom

      Redefining the ambition and expectations of what’s possible for PlayStation Plus & Now, developing a holistic content strategy for services – supported by new processes – that is organisationally aligned and delivers for players, services and the wider business

      Deploying a significant global content budget to build out the PlayStation Plus & Now content programmes to deliver strong engagement improvements and rapid subscriber growth

    • BTW – he is now a director of content acquisition and operations.
      Which should tell you that even though he doesn’t seem to be good at his job, someone in a better position was duh enough to promote him and his shoddy work. He’s probably good buddies with jim ryan & that is how he gets to continue “working” for a lousy company.

  • This is certainly a good mix of racing, action, and shooting bad guys.

  • I was seriously going to buy Persona 5 Strikers, so it’s really great we’re getting it with Plus. Dirt 5 wasn’t something I was ever going to buy, but it looks decent enough, I’ll try it out. As for Deep Rock Galactic, I’m not a fan of multiplayer games so it’s not something I’m planning to play myself, but I do appreciate the variety here. Overall, it’s a very solid month.

  • 🤦🏿‍♂️🤦🏿‍♂️🤦🏿‍♂️🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

  • Перейду походу на Xbox S

  • Nice, thanks!
