What are the PS Plus games in January?
Here the games that are available on PS Plus in January:
- Shadow of the Tomb Raider
These games will be available between Monday, 4th January to Monday, 1st February.
Maneater is only available to PS5 owners and won't be accessible in Saudi Arabia.
It's important to note that Greedfall won't be avaliable in a number of countries. If you live in the Middle East, your third PS Plus game will be Assetto Corsa and if you live in either Japan or South Korea, Mistover will be available instead.
Each game is only available for a certain period of time and, provided you redeem them before they disappear, you can then download them from your games library at any time.
Once you've redeemed a game, then it's yours provided you maintain a PS Plus membership. To be eligible for PS Plus games you must have a PS Plus subscription, which is £6.99 / $9.99 / €7.99 per month.
How to download PS Plus games
There are two ways to download PS Plus games via your console.
The first is via the PS Plus section on your PlayStation 4. You open this section by selecting the PS Plus icon in the top left hand corner of the PlayStation Home screen.
Here you'll be able to view and download the latest PS Plus games. This is also where find any previous PS Plus game you've redeemed, even if you've uninstalled them from your console.
The second way is through the PlayStation Network Store.
You open the PlayStation Network Store by selecting its icon from the main PlayStation menu.
Once the store loads, scroll down the menu on the left-hand side until you find 'PS Plus.' Here you'll be able to find the games currently available through the PS Plus and download them if you wish.
How to do remote downloads for PS Plus games
It's possible to remotely download PS Plus games onto your PS4 from the PlayStation Store.
To do this your PlayStation 4 must have Automatic Update switched on.
To activate Automatic Update, you must first ensure your PS4 is connected to the PlayStation Network.
To do this head to 'Settings' and find 'Set Features Available in Rest Mode'. You'll then need to tick the check box next to 'Stay Connected to the Internet' and then do the same thing for 'Enable Turning On of PS4 from Network.'
Next, you'll want to head back to 'Settings' and select 'Automatic Download.' On this new page, scroll down to 'Application Update Files' and click the check box next to it.
Now, when your PlayStation 4 is in rest mode, it will download any PS Plus game you select from the PlayStation Store.
How long can you keep a PS Plus game?
If you cancel your PS Plus subscription, then you'll lose access to any games you've downloaded through PS Plus.
Renewing your PS Plus subscription will allow you to regain access to all the games you've previously downloaded through the PS Plus program.
With the PlayStation 5 on its way, weve written guides on everything we currently know about PS5 specs, PS5 Digital Edition vs regular PS5 differences, PS5 SSD storage, PS5 console design, PS5 downloads, the backwards compatibility of the PS5, the PS5 controller, the PS Plus Collection and upcoming PS5 games youll be able to play.
