What games are free for PS Plus members in December 2022?
PS Plus December 2022 'Free Games' Leaks and Release Times for PS5 and PS4

'PlayStation Plus Essential' is the new name given to the basic tier of Sony's PS Plus subscription service which has existed for a good number of years.

The 'Essential' tier gives you a few ‘free’ games every month on top of the normal benefits like Online Multiplayer and occasional store discounts. Normally this includes three games available on PS4, two of which are (usually) optimised for PS5.

It goes without saying that anyone who subscribes to the more costly version of PlayStation Plus, known as 'PS Plus Extra' and 'PS Plus Premium', will also have access to these free games when they become available. But generally speaking, most players can get by with the basic PlayStation Plus Essential subscription.

If you've stumbled onto this page from Google, you're likely wanting to know what the next batch of free games coming down the road. Read on, you'll find everything you need to know about the PS Plus December 2022 free games.

29 November Update - We've checked our sources for the latest news and leaks. The most up-to-date information can be found just below.

Dealabs User Billbil-kun has leaked the PlayStation Plus December 2022 'free' games
November 27 - 

There are still no leaks to speak of, unfortunately. 

The official PS Plus announcement should be coming on Wednesday afternoon, so who knows if we'll find out more info from Dealabs user billbil-kun in the coming hours...

November 26 - 

Just a reminder that Sony Interactive Entertainment has kicked off its Black Friday sale with a pretty massive discount on PS Plus subscriptions.

Sony has slashed the cost of a 12-month PlayStation Plus subscription plan by 25%. Alternatively, if you're already a member, you can get 25% off when upgrading to the more expensive 'Premium' or 'Extra' tiers.

Head over to the PlayStation Black Friday Deals website for more details.

November 25 - 

As we've touched on before,  Dealabs user billbil-kun is normally the best source of PS Plus leaks before they're officially announced.

As it stands, billbil-kun is yet to post anything on the next slate of free games. But with the announcement expected on November 30, we imagine we'll hear something soon.

As long as you’re a member of any PlayStation Plus membership plan, you'll get a few 'free' games to download every month.

All PS Plus December 2022 Leaks 

At the time of writing, there are no leaks to indicate what games might become available to PS Plus essential subscribers in December 2022.

That being said, over the past year we’ve seen the same leaker – Dealabs user billbil-kun – successfully announce the correct PlayStation Plus lineup a few days before each official announcement.

It happened in September 2021, October 2021, November 2021, December 2021, January 2022, and many more months that followed. 

We would imagine that closer to the announcement we'll once again hear from billbil-kun, but should we hear of any further leaks or rumours in the meantime, we'll be sure to keep this article updated for you.

PS Plus December 2022 Predictions

If you're looking for some predictions as to what games could be available for PS Plus in December 2022, you may as well click off this page right now.

PS Plus 'predictions' are largely nonsense. The free games available with PS Plus each month rarely adhere to any formula or pattern and whilst we could Mystic Meg you three games potential games for next month, it's all largely unverified guesswork.

With such a vast library on the PS4 and PS5, it's impossible to say what games will be made available, so unless you see or hear of any concrete leaks (such as from billbil-kun) you may as well wait for the official announcement.

When will the PS Plus December 2022 free games be confirmed?

We imagine that most PlayStation fans will know how this works, however, for the sake of anyone who might be new to the console, here's a quick explainer.

Traditionally PS Plus games have always been announced on the last Wednesday of the month at 4.30pm BST on the dot. Then these new titles become available from the PSN store on the first Tuesday of the month.

For the December 2022 freebies, we should see the new games announced on November 30, and they should be available to download from December 6.

What are the free PS Plus games right now?

For the time being PS Plus essential subscribers can download the following games on their PS4 or PS5 console:

  • Nioh 2 (PS5 / PS4)
  • Lego Harry Potter Collection (PS4)
  • Heavenly Bodies (PS5 / PS4)

Make sure to add these games to your PS Plus sub before they change over, otherwise, you'll miss out.
