The trend will continue, as the December 2022 PlayStation Plus games list has reportedly leaked again. Sony usually announces the list on the last Wednesday of the month, but we may have gotten the news a day earlier than expected.
A user named billbil-kun on the French website Dealabs had correctly leaked the PlayStation Plus games of the month before their official announcement for several months, such as when he revealed November 2022’s PS+ list. He’s now claiming that this upcoming December games of the month are Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Biomutant, and Divine Knockout. These games will allegedly be available on December 6 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
Basic PlayStation Plus members get three free games each month, and while the list of free games may not be as extensive as other PS Plus tiers, it’s still better than nothing. According to this new leak, the games for December 2022 are as follows:
- Mass Effect Legendary Edition (PS4)
- Biomutant (PS5 / PS4)
- Divine Knockout (PS5 / PS4)
The most eye-catching entry on the list is Mass Effect Legendary Edition, a 2021 collection of the original Mass Effect trilogy. The collection offers visual enhancements, technical improvements, and quality-of-life changes, but the game’s core gameplay mechanics and story remain unchanged. The first three Mass Effect games are considered some of the best examples of branching stories in video games, so this is undoubtedly a worthy addition.
Next up on the list is Biomutant, a third-person action game where the player controls a mutant animal and uses its mutant abilities and weapons to fight enemies in an open world. It was the first game by Swedish developer Experiment 101, selling reasonably well at 1 million units.
Lastly, there’s Divine Knockout which Hi-Rez Studios publish. The game will be released on PS Plus the same day it officially releases, on December 6th. It is promoted as the world’s only 3rd person platform fighter. The game is similar to Smash Bros as hitting an opponent increases damage, making it easier to knock them off the stage. The difference is that it’s all in 3D, and the characters are based on mythological gods.
