This month’s highlight is Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Respawn’s 2019 Souls-like action-adventure game, which is free on both PS4 and PS5. The sequel, Jedi: Survivor, will release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC on March 17th, 2023.

January’s other two free PS Plus games are the platformer Axiom Verge 2 (PS4/PS5) and online action-RPG Fallout 76 (PS4).

All three games will be free through PS Plus from January 3rd to February 6th. Meanwhile, December’s free PS Plus Essential games will remain available until January 2nd.

PlayStation Plus Essential starts at $11.99 CAD/month, Extra begins at $17.99/month and Premium is priced at $21.99/month. PS Plus Essential perks, including the monthly free games, are included in Extra and Premium plans.
