UPDATE: My predictions were, once again, completely wrong. Rubbish. Anyway, for December you are getting not two, but three games! Worms Rumble, Just Cause 4 and Rocket Arena!
Worms Rumble is brand new and we rather liked it when we went for a hands on preview. Just Cause 4 had good reviews, 8/10 from us, and is lots of explosive fun, while Rocket Arena came out in July and has pretty good reviews, averaging at 71% on Metacritic. Here’s some trailers for the games!
Original story below…
It’s almost time for another batch of juicy free (ish) games to be dropped for PlayStation Plus subscribers to devour. The games should be announced around 4.30pm today and should go live on December 1st, usually around midday.
The games will be replacing Middle-earth: Shadow of War and Hollow Knight: Voidheart Edition, November’s PlayStation Plus games, but PS5 exclusive Bugsnax will remain free until January 4th, 2021, so I doubt we will be getting another PS5 game this month. If you have yet to download this month’s game you can use these handy links.
Bugsnax scored well in reviews including our own as we gave it a magnificent 9/10. “Bugsnax is a unique and wonderful experience, and a must-play for anyone who can get their hands on it,” said Nic. “If you’re lucky enough to have secured a PS5, make sure you make the most of PlayStation Plus and pick up your free copy while it lasts. If not, this game is still well worth your hard-earned cash.”

So, on to the speculation, what are we getting this month. Well just for a change we have a couple of indicators that might tell us what Sony have in store. At present there is a Black Friday sale on the PlayStation Store and some big Sony games are conspicuously absent including Gran Turismo Sport, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Uncharted Lost Legacy. We also know the games in the PlayStation Plus Collection, twenty free PS4 titles that PS5 owners get for free and Gran Turismo Sport, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Uncharted Lost Legacy are not included.
Sony will want to pull out the big guns to keep PS5 owners happy, and any of those games, with an accompanying PS5 patch to make then a bit more shiny, seem a very good bet. Uncharted Lost Legacy seems the more obvious title as Sony may want to keep back Horizon until nearer the launch of the sequel.
Stay tuned for the official reveal!
