January’s PlayStation Plus Essential line up has leaked, and it is once again through Dealabs. DealLabs leaks have always proven true over the past few months, so there is no real reason to the doubt this line up. The headline of January’s PlayStation Plus Essential line up is Star Wars Jedi: Fallen order for PS5 and PS4. The other games include Fallout 76 for PS4 and Axiom Verge 2 for PS5 and PS4 too.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order being part of the line up is a nice surprise, and will allow those who are looking forward to Star Wars Jedi: Survivor experience the beginning of Cal Kestis’ own story. It would be perfect timing to play through Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order as Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will be released 17th March 2023.
Fallout 76 was first released in 2018 and did not have a smooth launch. Since that time, Bethesda has worked on changes for Fallout 76, with changes to the system as well as removal of some modes like the killing off the Nuclear Winter battle royale mode. Will the game going on to PlayStation Plus breath new life into it? Who knows?
Axiom Verge 2 was released in 2021, but the PS5 release only came in August this year. The side scrolling action adventure metroidvania. The story follows Indra Chaudhari who is reconstructed after dying to find out what happened to Hammond and their research team. There will be a lot of danger as it becomes clear that this team was targeted.
Of course, Sony has not commented on the leak so we will have to wait until January to see if this line up is correct.
