A Stellar Lineup To Kick Off The New Year
Sony is heading into 2022 guns blazing with an impressive lineup of games coming to PlayStation Plus in January which includes Persona 5: Strikers and Dirt 5.
Persona 5: Strikers is a Dynasty Warriors-style spin-off to the acclaimed JRPG Persona 5 and is available to play on PS4. Players will once again take on the role of The Phantom Thieves as they investigate a widespread incident affecting the people of Japan. Persona 5: Strikers incorporates the hack and slash action that is common with most Dynasty Warriors titles and combines it with the stylish flair of the Persona series. You can take a team of four playable characters into battle with you all with their own powerful Personas. The turn-based gameplay from the main series is used for each character’s Persona and the stealth mechanic introduced in Persona 5 makes a return as players explore an array of warped dungeons.
Dirt 5 is available to download on PS4 and PS5 and promises an electrifying off-road racing experience with a vast roster of cars and over 70 routes with different terrains across the globe. Players will be able to take on Career Mode or play with friends through online multiplayer, or with the new four-player split-screen system. Dirt 5 also offers an Arena Creator Mode which offers its own unique game modes and allows players to create their own tracks.
Deep Rock Galactic is a multiplayer first-person shooter which features Dwarves in space as they battle alien hordes. Players must work together as they push back against the endless onslaught of alien monsters as they navigate procedurally-generated caves. There are four available classes to choose from, each of which has its own accessories, skills, and weapon upgrades. You can pick up Deep Rock Galactic on PS4 and PS5.
All of these titles will be available to play from January 4th meaning it’s your last chance to pick up December’s games which include Godfall: Challenger Edition, Lego DC Super Villains, and Mortal Shell. The standard edition of Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners is also available as a bonus VR title as well as The Persistence, and Until You Fall.
