The PlayStation Plus games for subscribers this December

  • Sony has revealed this month’s “free” titles for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
  • December is headlined by the Mass Effect Legendary Edition and rounded out by BioMutant and newcomer Divine Knockout.
  • More titles are yet to be announced for PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium subscribers later this month.

Another month, another round of “free” titles coming to PlayStation Plus subscribers. This December has some exciting games, including the remastered versions of all three mainline Mass Effects for PlayStation 4 (PS4) users.

Hopefully, you managed to scoop up a subscription when Sony reduced PlayStation Plus prices this Black Friday so you can enjoy these titles at no extra cost.

Apart from the headlining Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, BioMutant is also up for grabs for subscribers on both PS4 and PS5. This is especially significant as the kung-fu-flavoured RPG from THQ Nordic was highly anticipated.

However, many felt its hefty price at launch (~R1300) was inappropriate for a non-AAA, unpolished and somewhat shallow experience.

As usual, the third game included is a newer, more indie title. This time it’s the third-person beat-em-up Divine Knockout which is launching directly through PlayStation Plus (PS Plus) this month.

“Battle other gods in mythical brawls in Divine Knockout: Founder’s Edition, which launches directly into PlayStation Plus. Take on galaxy-saving quests and make tough decisions in Mass Effect Legendary Edition and venture through a post-apocalyptic kung-fu fable in Biomutant,” writes Adam Michel, Sony Interactive Entertainment director, content acquisition and operations.

The three games will be available to subscribers of PS Plus Essential, Extra and Premium from 6th December until 2nd January.

In an official blog post, Sony says that the PS Plus Extra and Premium Game Catalogue lineup for December will be announced later this month.

Let’s take a closer look:

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition on PlayStation Plus

All three of Bioware’s classic space opera RPGs are coming to PS Plus. With remastered visuals and audio for modern consoles, the Legendary Edition also includes all previously released DLC content, such as new missions, weapons, characters and more.

Available to PS4 consoles only, Mass Effect Legendary Edition is probably the best way to play Mass Effect in 2022/2023. If you ever wanted to get into the games, 6th December will be the moment for you.

The Mass Effect series is “legendary” for a reason. Mass Effect 2 is considered one of the best games ever made and when it comes to stories in gaming, Bioware broke the mould with the saga of Commander Shepard. We can’t recommend this title enough.


We were among those that were captivated by the first look at THQ Nordic’s post-apocalyptic RPG. Here you play as a mutant rodent samurai-kung-fu-gunslinger in an open-world adventure.

Create your own mutant by mixing and matching genetic codes, which has implications for how you look and how you play. Use a variety of weapons like swords, shotguns, revolvers and more to fight randomly generated monsters.

Use mechs, helicopters, bikes and many other vehicles to explore your way through this incredibly vibrant, lore-filled world.

BioMutant looks incredible on PS5 with native 4K and HDR support, and now that it’s available for subscribers, it’s well worth a look. This could be a title that you sink hundreds of hours into.

Divine Knockout: Founder’s Edition

Divine Knockout (DKO) is launching on 6th December worldwide, and PS Plus subscribers will be able to download the game and “extra goodies” via the Founder’s Date.

If you’re a fan of platform fighters like Super Smash Bros. then this could be an interesting change of pace. DKO sees you take control of godly characters like Thor and Hercules and fight online opponents in a massive, shifting arena.

Play 3v3 Arcade mode with friends to explore a variety of game modes, or duke it out in hardcore 1v1 and 2v2 Duels. Win by damaging enemies to make them vulnerable and then defeat them by knocking them out of the arena.

It’s the love-child of Smash and Smite and its available this month on PS Plus.
