PS Plus monthly games leaving soon for January 2023

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,

PS Plus Essentials monthly games will be losing five games in January 2023. The 'free' games from December 2022 will be leaving Sony's service, so make sure you grab the PS5 and PS4 games as soon as possible.

The PS Plus Essential games for December 2022 will be leaving the service in January 2023. With one of the best PS Plus games disappearing, make sure you claim all five free PS Plus games by January 2nd, 2023.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition will be leaving PS Plus in January 2022Mass Effect Legendary Edition will be leaving PS Plus in January 2022

Five PlayStation titles will be leaving the PS Plus Essential games list on January 2nd, 2023 — though remember PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium members can still claim monthly games, so don't let that pass you by (and for a separate leaving list for Extra and Premium, check the link). Mass Effect Legendary Edition contains three separate games from the Mass Effect trilogy, if you're wondering why this month will see five games leaving instead of three.

Make sure you add these games to your library as even after they leave the service you will be able to download and play them, they don't expire. If any of these games come to PS Plus Extra or Premium libraries, ensure you download the version in your library and not the version in Extra or Premium as this will reset your licence and thus your endless access.
