Sony has announced that the PlayStation Plus games for December 2022 are Mass Effect: Legendary Edition (PS4), Biomutant (PS4 and PS5), and Divine Knockout: Founder’s Edition (PS4 and PS5).
As revealed on the PlayStation Blog, all three games will be made available at no extra cost to all PlayStation Plus subscribers on December 6.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition turns the three-game line-up into a heftier five as it contains remastered versions of all three original Mass Effect games. Widely considered some of the best RPGs of all time, these modern sci-fi classics follow the story of Commander Shepard as they embark on several galaxy ending missions.
In our 9/10 review of what we called the best of the bunch, IGN said: “Mass Effect 2’s Legendary Edition upgrades the graphics to near-modern standards and lets us immerse ourselves in the best game in BioWare’s epic RPG trilogy all over again.”
Biomutant is another RPG, this time set in a post-apocalyptic fantasy world full of kung-fu. Players can blend together melee combat with shooting and mutant abilities as they seek to save (or destroy) their complex planet.
IGN said it was “okay” in our review, adding that: “Biomutant has a lot of the building blocks of a top-drawer action RPG but its cookie-cutter approach to objectives and puzzles starts feeling very repetitive very early on.”
Finally, Divine Knockout: Founder’s Edition launches directly on PlayStation Plus. This colourful third-person arena fighter has players adopt godly powers playing as the likes of Hercules, Thor, and more. Various modes are available including one on one, two on two, and three on three, with multiplayer featuring too.
All three games will be available at no extra cost until January 2, with last month’s games – Nioh 2, LEGO Harry Potter Collection, and Heavenly Bodies – leaving the service on December 5.
