PlayStation Plus Essential Games for December 2022 – Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Fallout 76, and Axiom Verge 2

Merry (late) Christmas! We have the line-up for the first 3 games coming to PlayStation Plus in 2023. This month, we have 3 sci-fi games in very different settings, be it a galaxy far far away, a not-so-distant post-apocalyptic future, or an alternate reality.

The games will release on January 3rd and will be available until the next batch arrives. As a side note, you should claim December’s games before they leave, so GO GET ‘EM! Without further ado, let’s get into the new stuff!


Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

The latest single-player game in the popular science-fantasy series, Fallen Order takes cues from souls-like and metroidvania games to create a title that greatly expands upon the Star Wars universe. You play as Cal Kestis, a Jedi who travels the galaxy trying to restore his order and reconnect to the Force.


Fallout 76

No, you didn’t skip a lot of Fallout titles. 76 sees players assume the role of a survivor from the eponymous (epnumerous?) vault, in the first multiplayer game in the series. You’ll have to interact with other players are you try to rebuild what’s left of society in a world ravaged by nuclear war.


Axiom Verge 2

A pixel-art metroidvania set in the world of Axiom Verge. The game has little in common with the original Axiom Verge, but takes place in the same world and has the same kind of H. R. Geiger inspired enemies, though the setting is now the outside of a mountain area and the combat is more melee-focused.
