Games coming to PlayStation Plus in January 2023 leaked
PlayStation Plus is a fantastic service if you own a PlayStation console, as it offers additional benefits and games that start at a fairly reasonable price. And Sony is adding 3 new games across all levels of PlayStation Plus and some additional games apart from the usual 3 games for PlayStation Extra and PlayStation Premiumwhich are the upper levels of the service.
IN December, Sony added Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Biomutantand Divine knockout to the service across all tiers, and they’re pretty solid games, and if you’re on PlayStation Plus Extra, then 17 new game titles were offered that you are allowed to keep as long as you subscribe to PlayStation Plus.
As December draws to a close, a valid question arises: what will be next? Like what Sony plans to add PlayStation Plus to January 2023, you’ll be happy to read that we already know the games coming to the service in January 2023, even before the official announcement. Thanks to a well-known PlayStation Plus leak, Car-onlywho set out on Twitter that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Fallout 76and Axiom Guardian coming to PlayStation Plus in January 2023.

It should be noted that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Axiom Verge 2 are naturally available for PlayStation 5, which includes additional features such as enhanced graphics modes and performance boosts. However, Fallout 76 has not been ported to next-gen consoles, so players who own a PlayStation 5 will play the PlayStation 4 version of Fallout 76 via PlayStation Plus.
About Fallout 76
Fallout 76 is a 2018 online action role-playing game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. It is part of the Fallout series and a prequel to previous entries. Fallout 76 is Bethesda Game Studios’ first multiplayer game; players explore the open world, which has been torn apart by nuclear war, together with others.
Players can play individually or with a group of up to three others. The servers for the game are public dedicated servers, with the player automatically assigned to one of them. While the game was expected to launch with only public servers, executive producer Todd Howard revealed plans for private servers to be introduced sometime after the game’s launch.
Elements from previous Fallout games are present and have been modified to work with the real-time gameplay. The VAT. system (a mechanic in the series that allows players to target specific locations on an enemy’s body to attack, which previously temporarily paused the game) is used in Fallout 76 as a real-time system.
About Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is one 2019 action adventure game developed by Respawn entertainment and published by Electronic art. The story is set in The Star Wars universefive years after Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. It follows Jedi Padawan Cal Kestiswhich becomes a target for Galactic Empire and are hunted across the galaxy by the Imperial Inquisitors as they try to complete their training, come to terms with their troubled past, and rebuild the fallen Jedi Order.
The players can use Kestis’ lightsaber and Power powers to defeat enemies ranging from stormtroopers to wild beasts native to each planet they explore. The game adopts one Metroidvania style of level design where new areas open up as Cal unlocks new skills and abilities.
About Axiom Verge 2
Axiom Guardian 2 is a Metroidvania video games of American indie developer Thomas Happ game. It is the sequel to Axiom Verge and was released on 11 August 2021for Windows (exclusively for Epic Games Store client), Nintendo Switchand Playstation 4. The game was later released on Steam and PlayStation 5 in August 2022.
Just like its predecessor, the Axiom Verge 2 is a side-scroller action-adventure game. The player controls Indra Chaudhary, a mysterious billionaire. The game borrows elements from games from the 1980s and 1990’s such as Metroid, Contra, Blaster Masterand Bionic Commandoamong others.
The game focuses on action and exploration, and contains many items, enemies and power-ups. Most of Indra’s power-ups come in the form of “Guns”, units with different powers. Indra fights enemies either with weapons like axes and boomerangs or by hacking them to change their behavior.
Her attributes such as health and attack power can be upgraded freely by using Apocalypse bottles scattered around the map. Unusually for a Metroidvania, most bosses are optional and can be bypassed without consequence to progression.
Although the credibility of the toy is in doubt, it would still be wise to take this news with a grain of salt. As studios tend to change plans at the last minute if necessary.
