Sony Interactive Entertainment has recently lifted the curtain on the highly anticipated lineup of free games set to grace PlayStation Plus in January 2024. In response to the feedback from loyal PS Plus subscribers who have voiced their concerns about the quality of the monthly offerings, Sony seems to have heeded the call for improvement. The company is ushering in the new year with a trio of outstanding games available to PS5 and PS4 users, promising a thrilling start to 2024.
Starting from January 2nd and running until February 5th, all PlayStation Plus members can dive into the world of gaming with three exceptional titles: “A Plague Tale: Requiem,” “Evil West,” and “Nobody Saves the World.” Among these, “A Plague Tale: Requiem” emerges as the star of the show, serving as the much-anticipated sequel to 2019’s “A Plague Tale: Innocence.” Released in 2022, “Requiem” garnered widespread acclaim from both fans and critics alike.
“Evil West,” another highlight of this month’s selection, hails from the publisher Focus Entertainment. Although the game’s reviews have been somewhat mixed, those who have taken the plunge into this supernatural shooter often regard it as a hidden gem. Lastly, “Nobody Saves the World” is the latest offering from Drinkbox, the studio renowned for the beloved “Guacamelee.” Having also premiered in 2022, all these incoming additions to PS Plus are relatively fresh, ensuring players can enjoy the latest gaming experiences.
