Another month, another TT wishlist for the PlayStation Plus monthly games for January 2022. Here are our fun half-guess half-fantasy predictions for the PS5 and PS4 games for the upcoming month. What would you want to see?
In the picks, we have one PS5 game and two PS4 games that could be part of the PlayStation monthly service for January 2022. We would ask that you leave your own guess below and join in on the fun!
Chivalry II (PS5/PS4)
Chivalry II might just be one of our more sensible picks! The multiplayer medieval-combat FPS game got a rave review from staff writer Tom on TrueAchievements, so wouldn't it be nice to see this lineup on the battlefield? We just want to cave some heads on our PS5 while trying to surmount some steep stone walls to liven up our January. There is a possibility that this is an option for Plus because a multiplayer game needs to keep feeding in new players. While Chivalry II has no shortage of players, a January influx would set them up for a strong start to 2022. However, the developer never put the first game on the service, so this guess could all be blood in the river. We would like it to happen though!
Dark Souls: Remastered (PS4)
Dark Souls: Remastered would be that big noise inclusion to the service that might help raise awareness for Elden Ring coming in late February. Getting an original Souls title in the hands of players might give them the itch for more. We can see Mortal Shell's December inclusion being a bit of trouble as Sony might not want to double-tap the genre, but let's be honest — the Dark Souls name carries its own name just fine. We say all of this, but the action RPG with hardcore elements is also just a great game, especially this PS4 remaster!
Descenders is our indie pick for the month, as a smaller game is nearly always included. This is a downhill biking game that presents some tricky routes to conquer. The procedural generation helps keep things fresh, while some tricks will result in hard, painful crashes. This looks like a good time, and a locked PS4 edition might help push a few players towards grabbing a PS5 upgrade for a small fee.
