Respawn Entertainment

Sony have revealed the first set of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers for 2023. Here's what January has to offer.

With the new year just on the horizon, plenty of players will be looking for a brand new game to kick-off 2023. Of course many of us have a huge backlog of games we've yet to touch, but what's a few more? The PlayStation Plus offerings for the past few months have had some decent games made available for free, and it seems Sony are keen to kick off January 2023 with some big hitters.

For the upcoming month of January, players can look forward to grabbing the following titles:

  • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order | PS4, PS5
  • Fallout 76 | PS4
  • Axiom Verge 2 | PS4, PS5

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is Respawn Entertainment's (best known for Apex Legends) action-adventure game, which follows the original story of Cal Kestis — the last remaining Jedi Padawan. The game is set following the events of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Senator Palpatine’s deadly Order 66 — designed to destroy the Jedi order and pave the way for the Empire to rise. A sequel, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, is set to launch in March.

Fallout 76 is Bethesda's MMORPG set in the Fallout universe. First released in 2018, Fallout 76 drops players into the post-apocalyptic world of Appalachia, a fictionalized representation of West Virginia. Featuring some of the state's well-known landmarks — West Virginia State Capitol, The Greenbrier, Camden Park and more — players can venture solo or team up with others to explore, and survive, a wasteland devastated by nuclear war.

Axiom Verge 2 is a side-scroller action-adventure game and sequel to Axiom Verge. The game was first released for PC in 2021, and later for PlayStation 5 in August 2022 making this the newest title on offer this month. Players will explore an alternate Earth-like world in the search for the world's secrets, hacking machines and battling monsters to ensure survival.

PlayStation Plus subscribers have until Jan. 2 to download December 2022's free games, consisting of Divine Knockout: Founder’s Edition, Mass Effect Legendary Edition and Biomutant. After this date, the new January games will be available to download and keep.
