The PlayStation Plus January 2022 free games have been revealed and Sony is kicking things off with a great line-up of games for PS5 and PS4. 2021 was a great year for the service and we can see Sony trying to continue that momentum into 2022. As has been the case for the last few months, we heard about the line-up a few days before the announcement thanks to a leak.
Unless anything changes, 2022 will continue the trend with a new PS5 game dropping, alongside two PS4 games for subscribers to enjoy. Given the year starts off quite quiet in terms of releases, it seems likely Sony will pull from its back catalogue for the month’s free PS5 game for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
So, what games are likely to make the cut? Here we will touch on when the PS Plus January 2022 free games will be announced, any leaks that emerge, and out PS Plus January 2022 predictions.
PS Plus January 2022 free games
The PlayStation Plus January 2022 free games have been revealed and are as follows.
- Deep Rock Galactic (PS5/PS4)

PS Plus January 2022 predictions
Although the January 2022 PS Plus free games haven’t been announced yet, we have some predictions as to what could be included.
The Pathless (PS5, PS4)
As a new year’s gift, we are guessing Sony will offer up ‘The Pathless’ an excellent and freeing open-world adventure, where you play as a hunter who free runs and gets faster as they shoot marked talismans with their bow.
Fighting to free the land from a force which is corrupting large beasts and the surrounding area, the game is a beautiful tale and has some great PS5 DualSense functionality. Oh, and we think, Sony could sweeten the deal and offer the PS4 version of the game as well.
Sniper Elite V2 Remastered (PS4)
With Rebellion currently working on the next Sniper Elite game, a look back at the title that shot the series to fame would be a good decision.
Remastered for PS4, the game comes with all the features from the original, with an enhanced resolution and frame-rate, and all the DLC missions included. Although it shows its age in a few places, it is still a great sniping simulator for you to sink into in the new year.
Streets of Rage 4 (PS4)
2022 means another year of aging for all of us and what better way to embrace that aging, than dipping into a retro-style beat ’em up, built for more consoles.
Streets of Rage 4 took players by storm when it released in 2020 and was critically beloved thanks to its sharp gameplay and smooth visuals. With its past at its core and modern upgrades to the series you will for sure find a challenge in Streets of Rage 4’s raucous ruckuses on the streets.
