Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for PS4 and PS5 is the first game featured for January 2023 PlayStation Plus games, and it comes at the perfect time to prepare fans for the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor release date on the 17th. March 2023.
Fans who haven’t played this Star Wars adventure yet will be able to learn the beginnings of Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis’ story before the sequel picks up five years later.
In our review of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, we said, “a strong cast sells a dark story while keeping things fun and true to Star Wars lore, and mixes fast-paced and challenging combat with energetic platforming, decent puzzles, and diverse places to explore for an amazing game in every way.”
Next up is PS4’s Fallout 76, the online prequel to the Fallout franchise that allows players around the world to work together – or not – to survive the aftermath of a nuclear apocalypse.
When Fallout 76 first released in 2018, it had a bit of a rough launch. However, Bethesda has continued to support it and continues to provide players with new content and updates.
In our Fallout 76: Wastelanders 2020 review, we said, “The Wastelanders update at least solidifies Fallout 76 as something worth recommending to fans of the series interested in multiplayer. The new story is excellent, but it’s not that easy to play with friends.” as it should be.”
Axiom Verge 2 for PS4 and PS5 is the latest game for January and is the follow-up to the retro-style 2D action game that pays homage to games like Metroid while at the same time forging its own unique identity.
In our Axiom Verge 2 review, we said it’s “a two-dimensional Metroidvania that’s interesting to explore despite its one-dimensional combat and disappointing boss fights.”
As players wait for these games to arrive, we want to remind everyone that you still have until Monday, January 2 to download the December 2022 PlayStation Plus games: Divine Knockout: Founder’s Edition, Mass Effect Legendary Edition, and Biomutant.
