December 2021's PlayStation Plus games have been officially announced, and would you believe it, the leaks were right. Again.
This month's leak arrived even earlier than usual — it was posted online over a week ago — but hopefully it's given you enough time to come to terms with December's selection.
So, PS Plus subscribers can look forward to the following games:
- Godfall (PS5, PS4)
- Mortal Shell (PS4)
- LEGO DC Super-Villains (PS4)
All three games will be available to download starting from next Tuesday — that's the 7th December.
If you're a fan of action games, it's honestly not a bad selection (at least in our humble opinion!). Godfall may not have been the essential PS5 launch title that some had envisioned, but after numerous updates and free content drops, it's a solid experience.
However, it's worth noting that this is the new Godfall: Challenger Edition, which only features endgame content, removing the main game's story and the character-building grind that comes with it. You can read more about Challenger Edition by clicking here.
Mortal Shell is also decent — an obvious Souls-like that's well crafted and rewarding to play. Meanwhile, LEGO DC Super-Villains is... Well, it's a LEGO game — humorous fun for players of all ages.
What do you think of December's PS Plus games? Let us know if you'll be playing any of these over the holidays in the comments section below.
I'll have the lego.
And that's all I've got to say about that.
Mortal Shell has a free PS5 upgrade for those who are unaware.
So 2 PS5 titles this month, result!
Not bad at all
These leakers spot on again. Might give Godfall a go, as already done Mortal shell (really recommend that one, download the Rotting Christ soundtrack, better music for the boss fights.)
When can I have the lego ?
Is Mortal Shell better than the likes of Lords of the Fallen/The Surge?
You aren't even getting the full game of Godfall. It's only a part of it which is why they called it Challenger Edition. That's a joke. It's Driveclub PS Plus edition all over again
Lego is the best one for me, not keen on the other two.
Not often I’m interested in all the games offered!
This is extremely pog, now if anybody complains I swear....
Wow seriously no knack 2? What a rip off.
Has it been confirmed whether mortal shell offers the free ps5 upgrade to ps plus members? I know a number of ps plus games have not included the free upgrade for some reason, so I'm definitely curious.
Brilliant was hoping the leaks were true looking forward to giving them a go.
Mortal Shell’s probably the least good PS5 game I’ve played but I haven’t played many PS5 versions of games. It’s just very 6/10 but a good effort for a small studio. That Lego game’s not bad though.
Not too shabby of a month for me.
@Futureshark sometimes the PS+ version doesn't include both versions though.
GodFall Challenger edition is TRASH!!!...the other games are cool.
This GodFall edition is trash b/c it starts you at MAX level with all the best weapons...BUT...the purpose of "looter" games is leveling up your weapons & gear...
Imagine playing Borderlands at launch already having the best weapons God-rolled...Sure it'll be fun for 1 second watching those weapons in action...then after those fleeding moments, what next???
Yeah, looks like Godfall is just Endgame content and not the full game. More than happy with the other two though.
Cool month. Have Mortal Shell on PC and loved it,but don't mind doing it again on the PS5. Surprised it took this long for Godfall to come to psplus. Hoping with all the updates it has had, it's now a decent game to play.
I've never been that keen on the lego.
Yawn….I guess I could check the Lego game out though but nonetheless….Yawn, come on PlayStation, read the rooom!!!!
Godfall the full game with the DLC is pretty solid stuff and its very pretty.
Dude! Godfall is a total ripoff! You have to buy the deluxe edition to get the actual game.
> Want to experience the story and campaign of Godfall? Godfall: Challenger Edition players can purchase the Deluxe Edition at any time to gain access to both the Godfall and Fire & Darkness campaigns
I have godfall but never tried the endgame so if that means it will equip me with endgame ready armour I'm in. Also heard good things about mortal shell and almost bought it until the rumours of it being psplus. Great month for me
Can’t believe it’s only been 3 years since the last Lego game came out (not including that Lego Movie 2 game 👀). It honestly feels like 30!
Lego Skywalker Saga can’t come soon enough 🙏
Phew, thank dudeness this month's ps+ is a bummer. Between already bought PS games, gamepass and black friday sales on XB, I thank PlayStation for sucking at ps+ this month. 🤡
I haven't played Godfall because it looks rubbish and it being free isn't making it look any less rubbish so I'll probably ignore that. Might try out Mortal Shell but probably won't. Ditto for the LEGO. Shrug.
The Godfall stuff is a joke. The end game stuff got boring real fast so the version they’re giving misses out on all the good stuff. 🤦🏻♂️
Lol. So Godfall itself isn’t a very good game and to add insult to injury, they aren’t even giving you the full game!
Push Square might want to push down that review article because it’s NOT even what you are getting.
Yeah we aren't getting the full version of Godfall. It's a gimped version with end game content and leveled up characters only. But you can buy the Deluxe Edition. Lame
At least there LEGO DC blah blah blah to plat this month. Eff the rest
@WallyWest You aren't getting the full Godfall game with the DLC. All you get is the endgame stuff. If you want the campaigns you got to buy them
@Milktastrophe. Yeah thats horrible haha.wtf.they just out of nowhere bring the challenger edition and not the deluxe edition.word up son
@PSfan4Life22 What comes with the Challengers Edition?
Aww, really disappointed to see that we don’t get the full version of Godfall. 🤦♂️
@sullivans2004 What games would you realistically suggest for PS Plus?
So we are getting 2 glorified demos of the same game for 2 consoles. Meanwhile one of the best one Mortal Shell is PS4 only. That is just ridiculous and honestly feels like a new low. Glad I didn't renew my PS+ last week now.
The PS+ and GwG games are just a joke now. They need to get rid of the free games thing for both services.
Terminator Resistance Enhanced (as the only PS5 game of the bunch), NieR: Automata GOTY Edition (the regular version was given away months ago on PlayStation Now so why not 😂), SNK Gals Heroines and Angry Video Game Nerd I & II Deluxe, although at this point idc about PS Plus games at all due to not only the last few months being underwhelming asf but also the fact that most games chosen to be part of each months games lineup take up WAYYYYYYYY too much storage (Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 which was given away in July 2021 for example 😂) and also I’d rather Sony/PlayStation focus on improving PlayStation Now instead, maybe they could add the movie-to-game adaptions of the Spider-Man movies from the 2000s onto the “PS2 Games On PS Now” lineup, since SIU is all buddy buddy with Activision currently?? 🤣🤣
Nothing I truly hate, which is really rather rare. The whole Godfall thing is a bit weird, and it had better not receive DLC Trophies eventually because I refuse to support Gearbox.
What a stinking pile of bumf
@Futureshark FF7 Remake also had a free upgrade from PS4 and it is not applicable for PS Plus users... The Persistence was similar, but few days later it's enchanced edition has been unlocked for PSPlus subscribers. So you never know. Mortal Shell is marked here as PS4 only game so you never know.
Games Id try but not buy so good month
Sony sure is taking advantage with the dislikes no longer showing on YouTube videos.
Also a heads up the season pass for Lego Super Villains is currently on sale for $2.99.
@AndyKazama wait! Did rotting Christ do an official soundtrack for this game?
We’ve had some bad months this year with PS+. And this is another one. Sorry, but I just don’t get where people can be excited here.
@sullivans2004 surely that's just your opinion. I'm happy with this month's games. But then again that just my opinion
The Godfall thing is...weird and honestly pretty shady! Hope they actually get a bit of well deserved backlash for that
Cant wait to get my arse kicked in Mortal Shell!!
@Bagwag82 Yeah true it is, although I do think I had a great point about PS Now needing more PS2 games.
True it is.
Considering all the reviews say the campaign and story are boring and the only highlight of Godfall is the combat and gear progression I don't see that big a deal here. I think people expect way too much for what amounts to like $4 a month.
Is Mortal Shell not giving the Plus version? If so, that's awful. This month is just half-baked garbage. These half games or only the PS4 version should not be allowed on Plus. Sony needs to get it's act together. Had a great month last month, only to bring it back down this month equally so.
This is getting pitiful, of all the games out there you stick us with God Fall on the PS5, a PS4 locked Mortal Shell and a Lego game.
Makes me glad Endwalker is coming out this week at least then out of PS, Xbox and Nintendo I'll have something to play over |Christmas on my PC.
@PSfan4Life22 I know that's why i said the full game is solid, i already own it and its DLC so this release makes no difference to me.
When I was a little boy, I never had any time for Lego.
The reason being that I ain't got a creative bone in me body. Fuzzy Felts was more my milieu. And you'd have to be sum sorta c*nt to prefer Fuzzy Felts...and use the word 'milieu.'
My son loved Lego though.
Cost me and his mum a farkin fortune.
So glad he's in to hamsters now...you can step on them and they're not as costly to replace as a deathstar.
Wasn't going to bother with another dreary Souls-alike.
Might have been tempted to try Godfall but apparently not now.
Already have the Lego Super Villains game so not for me (but it's the best game of the lot!)
First third of 2021 for PS+ was awesome. Then quickly descended into a deep pile of Meh for the following two thirds.
I was excited for Godfall, but after hearing that it's basically a demo version and not actually Godfall....just....why?
@NEStalgia From what I've heard, be thankful that this crap is just a demo !!!
OK... so... the only thing I was looking forward was Godfall, just because I wanted to try it and full price is too much for trashy game. And now they say, we get only some kind of "already finished" version... So simply, we won't get any PS5 this month?
And next month
PS4 Call of Duty - ending credits edition
PS4 Devil May Cry 5 - final boss battle edition and
PS5 My name is Mayo - ultra graphics enhanced reMAYOrsted complete edition (basic game + DLC all trophies already gained)
@zimbogamer hell yeah they did. It's awesome
$ony's not gonna give you what you want , until you want what they have to give
i get it now .
@hypnotoad Sad but probably true! There's still something kind of gutting when your "free" paid games are demos or alternate versions of actual games. Just give me a month of Now or something I can actually use, instead?
It's been too frequent lately having to say "GwG is better this month." And that's not praise for GwG......
Very keen to try Mortal Shell as I’m a huge Dark Souls fan.
I'm not gonna lie now...
Given the grand scheme of things, as long as The Palace don't get relegated, it don't really matter, does it ?
Cool PS4 games.
£2.75 a month 🤗
If Godfall is god-awful, but a lot of folks here still want to try it, a glorified demo with maxed-out characters sounds like a blessing to me.
I know this is a discussion on incoming PS games but I wanted to say goodbye to one of my favourites.
5 years ago I treated myself to an early Christmas present and bought myself a PS4, and I downloaded the PS game on offer at that month, unbeknown to me how much I would enjoyed it, unfortunately on the 8th of December, the game will no longer available and supported, so with a heavy heart, I would like to say goodbye to all players (mostly better than me) that I had the privilege to play with or against,
And finally to the game, 'Hardware Rivals', thanks guys its been fun
So this is gonna be a trend now, removing majority of the game and giving you a empty shell, what could go wrong here? 😤😤🙄😔
@PSfan4Life22 don't let this trend let up, we don't deserve this! I won't add this game out of principal to my download list!
Well, own mortal shell, will get the Lego game for when Dark Souls 2 🤬.
Nothing for me like the last 3 months.
Here's some salt for everyone's wounds.
Japan gets Judgment as the true headliner. Also The Sexy Brutal instead of Mortal Shell. I don't know anything about Mortal Shell, but The Sexy Brutal is a fantastic game.
@Milktastrophe Mortal Shell is not a bad game, it's certainly one of the few souls-like games that have new ideas in it and isn't just a Dark Souls wannabe (even though it is very obvious where they draw inspiration from).
But Japan's selection is simply amazing. I wish Sony had made Judgement and The Sexy Brutale available for the rest of the world as well...
Yeah I shall pass. Thanks
No PS5-only items, one available on Switch but both that aren't double as action RPGs with a focus on melee, which may raise the odds of a Vita-friendly control scheme. Pretty neat!
Frankly even if it had been the full version on Godfall it would not be a good month. The game looks pretty, but is very poor.
But Lego, YAY! At least that is something.
@Camlambelot don’t know if anyone answered but better than lords of the fallen yes, easily. Better than the surge, no. I love the surge though, especially 2.
@Futureshark Please check the clip from 2.39. The PushSquare clearly says NO FREE PS5 UPGRADE for Mortal Shell. I hope they are wrong and you are right...
@ScepticDK Nop, no PS5 edition.. Check my comment above.
@Medic_Alert Pretty sure it's a way to try to drive sales of the game - try the Challenger Edition, and buy the main game if you like it.
Generally, I'd rather they give me the base game and sell me the DLC if I like it, but after hearing so many bad things about Godfall when it first came out, I'm probably giving it a hard pass entirely.
@Fenbops thanks for the reply! I did NOT like lords of the fallen. I was OK with The Surge. I never played the second one.
To bad Godfall is just the multiplayer part. I wanted to try it out but didn’t want to spent the money due to the terrible reviews it got. But very happy for Mortal Shell. Even though I suck at any Souls like game. I mean I love them, but I am a bad player and can’t seem to finish them. Not enough skills 😵💫 Trying now Dark Souls 3. If I can just finish one of them I might convince myself to buy Elden Ring. Because I WANT to play Elden Ring. Maybe Mortal Shell can help me get there as well 🙏🏻😢
@Futureshark thanks for the info, I was going to give mortal shell a go this weekend on xbox as its enhanced edition but I'll wait now for Tues and upgrade to ps5 version.
On the Xbox side, sure, do away with Games with Gold because Game Pass is better and most people sign up for GP Ultimate which rolls XBL Gold into the sub.
On PlayStation it's much different. It'd be nice if Sony would put more effort into the 'free' games, especially on PS5 (hell strike some deals with smaller indie devs for a good upcoming game rather than go with trash like a glorified Godfall demo). That probably won't happen but Sony can't just walk away from offering games either because people would rightly demand a lower price on PS Plus (down to $45 would be fair). Sony will likely keep going as its going for the foreseeable future with PS5 doing killer sales numbers.
@Gamer83 Well, if these rumors are true they should get rid of the free games.
If it's true, yeah, changes everything.
What a joke... a game that doesn't include the game, a game that excludes the PS5 upgrade path (and which 99% of people will suck at) and only 1 game which might be half-ok (which doesn't allow you to play as the super-heroes). At least I don't need to worry about my rapidly diminishing storage space getting hit this month.
Already own LEGO DC Villains and Godfall is a demo sadly...but will happily claim Mortal Shell.
I think I will pass. If It wasn't for multiplayer games I would drop PS Plus altogether.
